Playniax released Defenstar, a side scrolling action game inspired by games like Defender, Datastorm and Dropzone. Here’s the description from Playniax Games:

“The object of Defenstar is to protect your pods on their perilous journey. To do this, you must pick the pods up, one by one, and carry them through the portal. Note that the so-called ‘soul collectors’ can also pick up your pods. If a soul collector succeeds in reaching the top of the atmosphere with a pod, the pod is infected and turned into a traitor leaving you with only the option to destroy it. If you lose a pod a bounty killer will appear and try to ‘relieve’ you of your duties. Keep an eye out for cargo ships. They carry upgrades for your weapon systems which can be collected by flying into them after you have destroyed a cargo ship. To end each level, all invaders must be destroyed.”

Full Game Review:

The downloadable game “Booster Trooper” is yet another entry into the online multiplayer First Person Shooter genre: with jetpacks.

Like all First Person Shooters, game play is relatively simple. You maneuver around a battle space and kill your enemies, using a variety of weapons that you can select. Up close go for the combat shotgun, far away use the sniper rifle; there is also the chain mini gun and a rocket launcher. Oh and who could forget the grenades, very useful if you get too close to the bad guys. Also jetpacks, the one new device in the game, are the use of jetpacks that allow the player to jump high and far over otherwise difficult obstacles.

In the single player mode the player really finds the limitations of the game. The AI seems to almost always stick its bots into inescapable positions, like shallow caves or under other obstacles, making them pretty easy to find. But that doesn’t mean they are easy to kill. The bots are incredibly tough, often taking several rounds to put down. Also they have great targeting skills, being able to wack the player before they are even in sight. By the way the player seems relatively fragile in comparison, needing only about half the damage to “die”.

Using only the WASD keyboard set up and the mouse, “Booster Trooper” should be easy to master, but it is surprisingly hard to get your character to do what you want and think you are telling it to do. Also the mouse control for the shooting is very confusing, the player can find themselves shooting over their backs and running blindly forward.

The graphics work pretty well, with the maps having great details and nice texturing. The character animation is pretty and smooth if not innovative. However the weapon effects are underwhelming, whereas the blood fountains look great. The sound is mediocre, the weapons all sound the same and the music is so annoying that the player will soon be turning it off.

This downloadable game is low on creativity and on innovation. Besides the jetpack feature “Booster Trooper” is pretty much like every other FPS on the market.

For $9.99 “Booster Trooper” is a low cost option if you just want to shoot some stuff but unless you are just a huge fan of 2D shooters, skip this one.

Tommy Tronic Platformer Game

Oasis Games created Tommy Tronic, an old school platformer trying to be… an old school platformer. Here’s the description from the game developer:

“an old-skool platformer that isn’t trying to be anything else! Jumping, shooting, dodging and exploring is all that’s required to help get Tommy to his destination and free his tiny puppy from the clutches of an insane genius school-kid and his brutal sidekick ‘Biffa’. It would be straight forward too, if it wasn’t for the fact that this journey will take Tommy through Gnarly wood; a twisted and eerie forest that adults avoid let alone tiny children! Imagination runs amok as Tommy confronts his childish fears head on, all in a bid to be reunited with his beloved pal ‘Yapz’!”

We found the game controls cumbersome to learn but we will publish a full review in the next few weeks.

The full downloadable game costs $9.99.
