We've all been there, a game angers or frustrates you to the point of throwing a controller across the room. Some games are primed to do just this such as Trials or Super Meat Boy. While Metrico teeters very close to this point, the anger is more directed at you for not been able to see the solution that is right in front of you. Metrico is a combination of platform and puzzle, which also includes a little bit of maths. Well, sort of. The feel of the game is very mathematical. You are given angles and percentages to help you ... Read More »
There is a saying that says "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."  People will often imitate their idols or someone/something that excels in the way they do things, possibly without even trying.  Toby: The Secret Mine, created by Lukas Navratil and published by Headup Games, takes a lot of inspiration off of games such as Limbo and Nihilumbra but not without seeming too much like a lesser polished, although still enjoyable, version of its predecessors. At it's core, Toby: The Secret Mine is a platformer and puzzle game at its core.  Right from the first time you start the game, you ... Read More »
The platforming genre was once a dominant force. It saw its peak in the 16-bit era before a the landscape changed and turned towards more complex, compelling games. In recent years, however, the indie scene has delivered a successful rebirth for the genre. And Mekazoo is a fine example of this. This is the first game from developer The Good Mood Creators. That’s a promising name for any dev and that’s exactly the kind of mood in which Mekazoo puts you. You explore fully 3D worlds, from a 2D perspective as your adventure begins - as an armadillo. Waking up to ... Read More »
When a developer is called Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team you better believe we're looking forward to their first Xbox One game. And we won't have long to wait, as Rise & Shine will launch on Xbox One on 13 January 2017. Rise & Shine promises to fuse platformer, bullet hell and arcade shooter into something new. "Rise & Shine is a true “think and gun” that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine’s add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do. Guide ... Read More »
Are you finding platformers are becoming a little tedious? Is the fact that your head is permanently fixed to the same old body something of a bore? Well the people at Adult Swim Games clearly feel the same, and have created the uniquely absurd platformer Headlander to rid you of these problems. As we have heard so many times before, you are the last human. Well, human head anyway. As Headlander opens you wake from a deep sleep slightly dazed and very confused by the fact that you are now just a head in a bucket. Your only companion is a friendly, if ... Read More »
It was just a matter of time – now for the six people who bought ReCore, prepare to for a HDR update. The announcement came – where else? – on Twitter, where both Microsoft Studios’ Shannon Loftis and Xbox’s Mike Ybarra both confirmed that the game will get a graphical upgrade when played on Xbox One S. https://twitter.com/XboxQwik/status/803050270200467456 HDR – high dynamic range – gives greater colour and contrast to images, essentially making them a whole lot richer and pleasing on the eye. The downside? You’ll need a TV capable of rendering 4K images and an Xbox One S (Sorry, ... Read More »
We have all had dreams or imagined as a child our toys coming to life.  What type of personality would they have or who they could be? Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found takes that idea and creates a stellar action based 2D platformer with rich story and RPG mechanics.  With so much going on, it's easy to get overwhelmed, but makes you eager to continue. In Toy Odyssey you play as Brand. Brand is initially confused on why he exists but learns of the nightmares his owner Felix has been having, and wants to do everything he can to stop ... Read More »
Puns are trucking great, right? That's especially true when the pun is as accurate as ClusterTruck, as that's the only way to describe the gameplay that it brings to the table. Pitched as a “first person, physics based platformer”, you jump from truck to truck avoiding the metaphorical and occasionally literal lava floor in order to make it to the goal. Simple enough, until the trucks start misbehaving. The physics on offer means that no two levels play out the same way twice. Your first run might see a certain truck crash and burn on the highway, but the second ... Read More »
Who hasn't ever wanted to be a ninja?  Having the skills in combat as well as the grace needed to move about without ever being seen - that would be amazing. Kyurinaga's Revenge is a 2D platformer that allows you to take the role of one two ninja warriors in a pursuit to top an evil warlord.  While it is a true-to-form platformer, it doesn't quite offer the full-on ninja experience.  At least not without limitations. In Kyurinaga's Revenge you play as Kaoru and Broccoli - one is an onion and the other is well... broccoli.  Kyurinaga's war machine took a decisive blow right after ... Read More »
