For the gamers that love puzzles and platformers, this game is a fantastic combination of the two. Candleman is a fantasy adventure that will have you navigate dark levels. You can use your light, but you only get 10 seconds per level. Candleman melts just like any candle would, the benefit of him becoming smaller allows him to jump higher. This makes it easier to reach different platforms. “From its original conception to its near-final release, Candleman has captivated players at all stages of development with a simple core concept and tight platforming gameplay amid the darkness,” creator Gao Ming … Read More »

So powerful is the gun that a single shot can launch Kick high into the air, and suddenly you have a new mechanic to play with. Mastering … Read More »

Would you like to wear a shark suit while playing, not a problem. Have you ever shot a rainbow out of a unicorn’s head, well now’s your chance.

Okay, maybe that last one is just me but you can do all of that plus more in ‘Commander … Read More »
