Indie Games round up 14th October
All releases are played for the eight minutes allowed in trials and impressions are made from that. If you would like for us to review your game in full, post an update on the progress of your game etc. please get in contact.
A-Maze!-ING is a kind of arcade game where you must find your way out of a maze like volcano before the time runs out. The time limit in the trial was very short and very unplayable as a result. The graphics are rather basic and there is not much to the game. Probably one to avoid. A-Maze!-ING costs 80 :MSPoints: and more information can be found here.
Capture the Oong is a space based muliplayer shooter. The main core of the game is Live based play with humans but there is a option to include bots which I found to be quite hard to play against. The Live play is only available in the full game so I was unable to test it. If a lot of people buy the game and play online it could be good fun but otherwise I am not too sure. Capture the Oong costs 80 :MSPoints: and more information can be found here.
Colosseum: Hammerball is made by the people that created the impressive Colosseum game. Hammerball is a bloodsport mix of hockey where you must score points in the goals to win. Graphics are cellshaded and look great, as does the music and sound. Well worth checking out as it is a nice little game for up to four players locally. Colosseum: Hammerball costs 80 :MSPoints: and more information can be found here.
Dark is a platform with a very distinctive graphic design made up of lit areas that cast shadows and creates a very atmospheric game. I will be reviewing the game in full sometime next week so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime it is worth checking out but I found the jumping system a bit ropey when not on flat ground, sometimes the jump would not register at all and you need to move and jump for it to work. Try the trial and see if you like it or not, or wait for my review 🙂 Dark costs 80 :MSPoints: and more information can be found here.
Trippin’ Alien is a simple yet addictive arcade game where you must fly along a scrolling level while avoiding the obstacles. Only one button is needed, Up on the joypad to fly upwards as gravity takes care of you falling 🙂 Despite the basic graphics it is quite a fun game and has a few game modes and other fillers to keep you occupied. I will be reviewing the game shortly so keep an eye out for it. Trippin’ Alien costs 80 :MSPoints: and more information can be found here.
Ura Kaiten Patissier seems to be a sequel or something to Kaiten Patissier that I checked out over the weekend. This version is basically the same game with new levels and more puzzle based gameplay as there are now switches and boxes to push to open walls etc. I like this game but maybe a bit too soon for a sequel, none the less, if you liked Kaiten Patissier you will love this. Ura Kaiten Patissier costs 80 :MSPoints: and more information can be found here.
