Physics based games always get me excited. As soon as I learned about Forts, a physics-based battle game, I personally volunteered for this one at PAX East 2017 back in March.
You got tactics in my platformer! I’ve always had a fondness for turn based strategy games. From Civilization games to Final Fantasy Tactics to Tabletop RPGs they have always found a way to draw me in. So I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this game was a turn based strategy game, though it looks like a 2D platformer. Throw in some Angry Birds or Worms Armageddon and you have Steamworld ...[Read More]

There are fantasy worlds in which orcs are noble creatures. Valiant, peaceful, and in harmony with nature, these orcs are worthy of respect and admiration. While I do appreciate the effort that has gone in to bringing a modicum of civility and gentility to a stereotypically barbarous and bloodthirsty race, my orcs of choice have always been, and always will be, Tolkien orcs. Orcs Must Die!, as you...[Read More]

About a week ago, I got one of Steam's announcements for a new puzzle-platformer, CreaVures, from Muse Games. As soon as I saw the first moments of the trailer, I knew I was going to buy this game! Imagine my surprise, when I received an email the next day, offering me a chance to review it! Sweeeeeeet!
I like a good Tower Defense game; at least, I like it for about half an hour before I get bored sitting there just building structure after structure. If I wanted to do that, I’d have been an engineer. Why can’t I have it both ways, killing waves of baddies with my towers and killing waves of baddies with my BARE HANDS? Having just announced their first original game, the action-strate...[Read More]
Puzzle games are a dime a dozen these days, but it’s rare when one requires the gamer to think logically and strategically. Puzzle Expedition by MumboJumbo Games for the Nintendo DS is just that. With 90 levels to go through, Puzzle Expedition takes gamers on a hunt for a missing father, and delivers plenty of chances to make your brain explode.
Finally, Sega’s Shogun 2 gets a release date!
It is 75% off. It is awesomesauce in digital form. It is less than FOUR DOLLARS!! seriously, go get it! :D
For the past 48 hours, I’ve been binging on Chocolatier: Sweet Society by PlayFirst for Facebook. I’m already hooked, and I know that no good can come of this. I know, it was only a couple of weeks ago where I ranted about people playing games on Facebook, but I stayed true to my word and I haven’t been flooding my friends with status updates. Had I chosen to do that, my friends ...[Read More]
