Laxius Force II is a bizarre experience. I suspect English was not the first language of its creators (“Your lecture of my mind..” is a particular gem) and it seems to have been designed with a handheld gaming console in mind rather than a PC.
Popnus Puzzle is a match three game that has something for everybody. Unlike standard match three games, the object you select switches places with any other object it touches. This sets it apart from other match three games where you only switch two objects side by side.
I had to admit that I haven’t given computerized card games a fair shake in the past, especially if they take the form of titles the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic: The Gathering. Such things just get too complicated to keep track of. As such I was initially hesitant to even give Spectromancer a try, since that’s exactly what it is.
I’m glad I changed my mind. Aside from a few little irksome flaws, this is a really fun game.
Banjo and Kazooie, Ratchet and Clank, Solid Snake and Otacon, Sam and Max. All these pairings have two things in common. First, they act as partners, working in sync to beat their respective games. And, second, they all come from GOOD games. This may be a good lesson for video game designers, as duos seem to work wonders for a title.
Gotta say, the first screen shot of Mad Skills Motocross didn’t fill me with much confidence. Plain old dirt bike game. Dull.
Don’t make my mistake. Play this game. You will love it to death. (Literally.)
There’s been a renaissance in adventure games, thanks to the rise of independent game developers and free, powerful tools like Adventure Game Studio. Ben Ward and Dan Marshall made their adventure game debut in Ben There, Dan That! and have returned for their first commercial title: Time Gentlemen, Please! If you think a game made with a freeware engine isn’t worth buying, think again. Time Gentlemen, Please! is a painstakingly crafted adventure in the tradition of classic 90’s LucasArts adventure games. And on top of that, it’s hilarious.
Do you know the difference between Moles and Gophers? We don’t. Does it matter for this game? Not really. Remode, a UK based game company, produced this trailer for their upcoming game called Mole Control which they call The Ultimate Test of brains and bravery. Surely they haven’t seen Bill Murray in CaddyShack.
Crayon Ball, by Howling Moon Software, is a simple idea, well presented. I’m sure most people are familiar with the ‘balloon burster’ style of game, where the player must clicks on balloons in order to burst them, to try and match as many balloons of the same colour as possible. Crayon Ball introduces a Tetris element, in that you have to match four or more coloured balls while more are raining down from the top of the screen. If the screen fills up, you lose (broadly speaking, there a few modes of play).
BrickShooter by Terminal Studio is not your average match-3 game. There are a lot of options for the gamer to tweak that make each experience with BrickShooter, unique and challenging. Gamers of all levels from the beginner to the master will find this game intriguing and addictive. With it’s bright colors and multiple directions of play, gamers will be impressed with this one!
