No GravatarSuper Meat Boy is a classic platformer of the modern era, and even now on the Nintendo Switch, it still shows that it’s worth the praise. Super Meat Boy is an amazing game starring a sentient blob of meat on a journey to find his lady love. It’s an amazing game that tests the mettle of anyone willing to play it, making it an intensely rigorous game, where every move counts especially as you continue playing.

Super Meat Boy tells the story of a Meat Boy who is out to rescue his girlfriend from the evil Dr.Fetus. Meat Boy runs through a vicious world filled with saws and other tough barriers to his justice. He has to dodge all that comes at him or else be instantly destroyed. Touch anything dangerous and you’ll have to run and jump through the perils all over again.

This game doesn’t just end with a run through what it calls the Light World. You will also have to run through the chaotic Dark World, an evil version of the original levels. These levels are far harder than the first run through, and your instincts will have to be even sharper if you are going to survive their assault.

As you play through this game you will also have to face bosses who will make your life even harder. Dodging and taking on bosses certainly, don’t make running through levels easier. Dr.Fetus is out for blood and he will only get more bloodthirsty as the adventure continues.

The game also includes warp zones which send the player into different worlds. These worlds are inspired by different games including ones like Castle Crashers. There are also versions based on classic systems like the original Game Boy. These levels will put your skills to the test, without the stigma of facing the time. They really help mix up the fun when you find the warps.

Don’t forget to collect the bandages you find around the world. These bandages are hard to find and collect but the rewards are amazing. Finding enough will allow you to play with different characters. All of the extra characters are different, making the game play interesting. Commander Video plays slow and has the ability to freeze in the air for a moment. Playing the game with a style like Commander Video can make it easier or harder depending on the stage, allowing for new ways to play the game.

While I may not be a master platformer, I did find this game to be one I wanted to continue playing. Dying multiple times is never terrible when your main character explodes after every death. With the games awesome soundtrack you simply want to continue playing. Plus, when you finally complete the level and see all of your past attempts at action it’s rather funny seeing the Meat Boys run and die showing off your evolution.

Super Meat Boy is a stellar game that really has a lot to offer. With 300 stages to blast through, you will certainly find a lot of enjoyment in playing this game. Plus, collecting bandages, playing with different characters, and conquering all the warp zones will certainly add to the fun. Super Meat Boy is out now on Nintendo Switch and has been out on many systems for quite awhile. If you’ve yet to pick up this meaty game, jump into the wicked world of Super Meat Boy today!

No GravatarThe Fifth installment of Etrian Odyssey is upon us, and it is certainly a brilliant RPG. This RPG is different from most in that you get to create your party and make them whatever you wish them to look like. While there are four core groups and each have their own job types, you get to design the rest.

This RPG is not the first of its kind that I have played, as I greatly enjoyed Persona Q which was of the same vein. Exploring the dungeon in a first person view makes for quite an exciting experience. Never knowing when monsters will appear is also quite magnificent.

Jumping into the game, I created my party, and decked them out as I saw fit. It was a little hard, figuring out what types of characters to bring to battle, but eventually I decided to pick one from each group. I found that each group had different powers that would aid me, though I had no idea if I had chosen right.

Etrian Odyssey V then tasks you with a quest and after some shopping and maybe a save, you are sent to the dungeons. With beautiful, yet, somewhat funky music blasting, you find yourself in a forest. This is where the fun begins, and you begin your dungeon trek. Exploring this forest you learn that you need to make a map of your surroundings. Quite a novel experience really. You need to place down markers, so that on subsequent journeys into the areas you will be able to get through them easier. It might be time consuming but it also makes you very aware of your surroundings.

The battle system is fairly simple in that you have three characters in the front and two in the back. Choosing the right characters and classes can break or make it for you. You’ll need to know where characters need to be to effectively fight these foes. There are also unison skills which can help your team as well as skill points to buy individual skills.

All in all Etrian Odyssey V Beyond Myth, is a good game. While, it might not be up everyone’s alley, it is certainly worth trying the demo. The sheer ability of customization is great, and the fact that you can give any character any voice is hilarious and actually quite nice. So, boot up your 3DS or 2DS, form a party, and get dungeoneering! This demo is available right now on the 3DS Family of Systems.

No GravatarWhat if you were trapped in prison, and finally had enough? In The Escapists 2, it is up to you to break out of prison, which is certainly a novel idea. The game throws you right into to what I can only think of as the Shawshank Redemption ending gone wrong tutorial. You are given all the skills needed to get out of prison and everything really feels just a little too quick, but it works. This is by far my most positive experience with this game, as it really shows you the game at its finest.

 

After you beat the tutorial and learn what you need to play the game, you are thrust into a revamped version of the same prison. Though in this, there really is no sense of danger and thus it is just plain tedious. My prisoner, Clive, roams around and does what he wants, as long as he behaves nothing bad happens. He completes quests for other people and often goes to the library. While there are other prisons that will obviously be a challenge, this opening level doesn’t make it appealing to continue.

There is certainly a part of me that is spurred to play more because of how tedious the game is, but it is not all consuming. I’m playing as a white haired gent wearing a blue bear hat named Clive. Clive is going about his day to day life, completing quests and being as good as he can be. Part of me just doesn’t feel right breaking him out when I’ve been pretty diligent about making him an upstanding prisoner. Sure, he could certainly do more in life out of prison, but when I’m playing there isn’t any drive to break free.

Now, this game is really only like that when you play solo. When you play with others there is a sense of urgency. Playing with others online or locally does provide you with more incentive. Now, here you are ready to break free because you have people to support you. It’s now a true game where you want to get out because everyone wants to. This is where the true fun comes in, even if you are playing in the simple first stage now there is competition.

The Escapists 2, to me, is a game about making prisoners and giving them their own stories. My main character Clive or The Kuma, as I’ve dubbed him, has done heinous things and now he is ready to take his lumps and be good. When playing solo, I found that it was par for the course to inject some story just like in the tutorial level. Without any emotion this game plays just like a simple simulator where you are guided by time lines.

While the game looks nice, and in multiplayer situations it can be fun, I just know this isn’t a game for me. I just find it to be droll, and I know that’s not saying alot having only played the first true level. But, if a game doesn’t pull me in the first level it’s not going to pull me in later.

There may be people who really enjoy this game and more power to them for playing it. But, for me, whenever I play it, I’ll be happy playing as Clive, a former Mob Boss, who now just wants to help find his mate’s harmonica that some other guy stole.

If you are itching to break free from a jail, then Escapists 2, may just be the game for you. While it was dull for me, it may just be a fantastic game for you. So, if you wanna escape prison, do it a game like The Escapists 2!

Have you ever wanted to fly a ship through a body, taking out vile entities? Well, Transcripted might just be the game for you. In this game you fly a ship through a body taking out cells that want you dead, while matching. Yes, while this game might be a match 3, it marries itself well with a space ship shooter.

As you fly through this damaged body, you must destroy viruses, and transcript them accordingly. Blasting a virus will give you a new piece to the puzzle and that is always good. It can get interesting when you are being shot at and still must try to solve the puzzle before you. You never know what’s coming next so you always have to keep an eye on the enemies as they appear.

Transcripted is an interesting game and one that I honestly wouldn’t have thought I would enjoy. It’s an interesting shooter on its own but with the match 3 element it really changes the game. I would honestly highly reccommend this game to just about anyone who likes either or both of these elements. Besides the interesting gameplay fusion there are many other good things about this game. There are 25 levels to beat and 5 different challenge modes. This will obviously offer up a lot of game play. As you progress through the story you will even be able to upgrade your ship. The cool thing is that it is completely customizable so you can choose how you want to progress. The music is also quite lovely and really helps to keep the game pleasant.

All in all Transcripted is a lovely game, that is isn’t too expensive. It will offer you alot of content and sometimes a cheap game full of content is just what the doctor ordered. So, what are you waiting for, there is probe that needs to fly through a body, and you are the only one who can do the job!

Transcripted is out now on Steam and Nintendo Switch!

Deer God, is a beautifully crafted game released recently for Nintendo Switch. This game is just so well crafted in its 8bit style that I just find it so appealing. This game really does make you one with a deer and that is a nice change of pace. I honestly would not have thought I’d find myself enjoying playing such a game as a deer but here I am. Deer God tells the story of a hunter who has killed too many. A regular man out in the forest trying to hunt, presumably not for sustenance finds himself at the feet of the Deer God. This God has had it up to here, with this man, and decides its time to punish him. The man is suddenly transformed and wakes up a fawn.

As a fawn you have free reign of a forested world to run around and do in as you please. Though this forest is something special, as it truly is in the domain of the Deer God. You can even learn special abilities from the other Deer. It really is interesting seeing you talk to deer and them telling you all the secrets of the forest. Obviously they just know you are a deer, but its actually a man, who is learning how amazing deer can be.

Deer God, is all about this hunter working to fix his transgressions, or keep on keeping on as it were. There is a legitimate Good and Evil system in place. This makes me happy for a few reasons, as it lets you know the score. You can simply kill everything and be deemed the worst, and suddenly you are a porcupine who can’t jump. I mean you aren’t defenseless but this is a platformer and you will certainly meet your doom. If you decide to be good, you can complete quests, and solve puzzles. These puzzles will unlock new skills and let you progress in the game. You really need to only kill the vicious animals as they are the ones that mean you harm. There are even nice humans who may ask for your help and it would behoove you to help them too.

This game is a simply beautiful one, and one that you could play for hours. It will tell you how far you have traveled in the game and your deer will in fact age, the longer you play as it. This leads to its own kind of scoring system, where you can track how long you’ve been playing as a certain deer. In fact as you play if your deer meets a lady deer, it may even give you an offspring. This is another life, though I found my offspring died quite easily, as they follow their father.

Deer God, is a simply majestic game and one that I just find to be utterly relaxing. This game will really show you how peaceful life can be as a deer. It’s also nice to imagine hunters being turned into deer, and learning that maybe shooting for fun, isn’t such a good thing to take part in. All in all, Deer God is a game worth playing, and if you have will suggest you do it, go on, it might redeem someone.

In an odd spin off of the Odyssey now set in a far flung future, join Penelope as she goes to find her husband. Penelope in the original epic, stays home to fend off suitors but this Penelope is tired. She just wants her husband to come home and rid her of these pests and thus sets out on her own space odyssey.The Next Penelope is a top down racing game where you careen around tracks. In a truly speedy game you will need to win races and beat out huge monsters by hitting all of the speed boosts. This game isn’t like other racers, in that it really is about maxing your speed. The races get harder and the monsters get faster.

Facing the suitors in a race is also terrible as they want to win more than anything. They might be after Penelope but they clearly don’t care if she gets hurt in the process. It is interesting playing a game like this, as it is a change of pace seeing a woman at the helm in this story. While Odysseus has always been the strong one, this game shows us why Penelope really is so great.

The Next Penelope is definitely a game that looks good. It reminds me of F Zero in a way as the tracks are antigravity. You speed around tracks and take damage for every hit. There are obstacles galore and the AI really knows how to take you down. You legitimately have to get first place to pass levels and that makes for repeating races until you do it.

The Next Penelope might not be the best game but it does what it needs to be playable. If you enjoy the Odyssey you might get a kick out of it. Plus if top down racers are your thing than I suggest buying this stellar indie game. Personally, I’m not much for racing as I’ve never been so good but this game is rather interesting as I haven’t played too many top down racers. So, go on a quest and find Odysseus!

In a world where a despot is king, it is up to an orphan boy to take him down. This orphan is the only one who can stand up to this king and through the power of magnetism you will make it all possible. This game is simple yet also a great puzzler. You will have to use magnetism to your advantage while encountering enemies who will often just get in your way. This game is great because it is so much fun, yet also gets your brain going.

The game starts off with a man dropping off a young baby, clearly he can’t keep the baby. Years pass and the baby has become a young boy who heads out one rainy night. Evading guards who are after him for an unexplained reason he sets out for the tower of Teslagrad to find its secrets. As he ventures through the tower he finds it filled with traps and non lethal monsters. Soon he finds himself in possesion of a magnetic glove that he must use to get through the tower. As he progresses he gains power ups and new abilities to make getting through tower easier.

The artstyle is very nice, and shows off the fact that this game is in a different world. The boy always has a look of determination on his face that makes you want to push forward. It saves every time you change screens so there is no reason to worry about leaving the game to continue it later. You will even have to face bosses, which will add another layer to the mosaic.

There are multiple ways to die, and they include everything from spikes, to electricity and even fire among other things. You must always have your wits about you as you travel through this deadly tower. There is much to gain from completing this adventure and you may just learn a thing or two as you pass challenges. This game is mysterious in every way, and you never know what you will come across. There are monsters lurking in the tower, gigantic bosses who just want you dead. Do you have what it takes to take down these behemoths?

Teslagrad is a game that takes you on a journey, one that will save a young boy. Someone who honestly has no way of living as they once did, as they are now being hounded. Getting through the tower alive is the only way he will ever be able to live a semblance of life, and that is what makes this game. There is this sense of hope as you progress through the tower, you kind of connect to it. To me personally I felt like this game was just something that by playing it I was helping this kid. An orphan alone in the world finds power and learns a lot along the way, it’s heartwarming.

Teslagrad is out now on the Nintendo Switch. If you’d like to help out a young orphan, download this game and using magnetism, help him save the day!

Gorogoa is a game that was first released on phones and now has found its home on the Nintendo Switch. This game is certainly one to be that you do truly need to see to be believed. In a true moment of artistry, Gorogoa comes to life before your eyes and is by far one of the visually stunning games I’ve yet to see. Gorogoa is a game that truly is all about puzzles. There are countless puzzles for you to uncover and figure out and that is a great thing. Unlike other games that include puzzles this game requires a different type of skill. You really will have to work to unlock the puzzles by figuring out how puzzles line up.

This game is based on a grid and sliding the 4 screens will allow you to find out how to solve the puzzles.  This in and of itself is a different way of playing puzzle games and it is because it was originally on phones. It works so well though and makes for a lot of fun. You really have to figure out where to put panels, as you might have to set up decent chains to get things done. Of course this is really great, as puzzles are something that when found you kind of smile. Gorogoa is really just such a delight to play. The art style is something I’ve not seen in a while, and really is gorgeous. Not only is fantastical it also just screams you be delighted by its majesty. You will see so many different things that will honestly surprise you. I cannot stress how great this game looks, to have skill to draw like this really is quite the feat.

Gorogoa is definitely one of the best looking games in the hand drawn world. Artfully crafted and truly beautiful in every way. An adventure through strange towns as you swap different puzzles to crack the code. Will you be able to help this young boy on his quest, or will you give up when the going get’s tough. It’s time for as young boy to complete a magical quest, and only you can help. So, download this amazing game and see just how great the art can be!

The End is Nigh is a brutal platformer from the makers of The Binding of Issac, and brings you deep into an apocalyptic world. The End is Nigh, a challenging game that will test the limits of any platformers expertise. Bouncing around as a small blobby citizen, is certainly not meant to be easy. The main character is one of the only survivors of the apocalypse and after his game breaks, he curses harshly and heads off. In a twist he really just wants to find a friend to spend his days with and maybe help repopulate the world.

The End is Nigh is game with over 600 hand drawn panels. You really can see the work that went into making this game as the artist makes every level harder. Playing it I found myself constantly in the mindset of the character at the beginning of the game. Cursing under my breath or even aloud as I lost from terrible jumps and the spikes that littered the screen.This game also has many collectables that will vanish if you die. As you collect these tumors you will gain access to other levels. This is quite interesting, as it makes you really work to collect them all. You will find huge blobs who require them, and seeing that there are at least 300, it will take all of your skill to collect them all.

As someone who is always less inclined to play super intense platformers this one did truly test my mettle. But, for some reason I felt inclined to continue playing. I wanted to see this angry blob man find a friend. I mean if it was truly the end of the world, one single friend would be what anyone would ask for I’m certain.

The End is Nigh’s hand drawn work is stellar and really adds to the fun. As you progress through the game collecting tumors, you will see different locales. Sometimes the aura of the area will be completely different, but the game will still repeatedly kill you. There are multiple different levels that will continue to test your mettle no matter where you end up.T here are also multiple endings to sate yourself if you choose to play multiple times. Depdending on how you play you can see a variety of endings though of course only one is the most satisfying. Will you manage to keep this blob happy at the end of his quest?

The End is Nigh is truly an apocalyptic nightmare, yet is a game that you will continue to want to play. As you progress through this game and work to help this angry blob find a friend you will continue to find yourself in perilous platforming situstions. The End is Nigh which is out now on Nintendo Switch really is quite the game and one that you will have to see to really understand. It’s clear that any game by this creator is going to be twisted and in  world where this isn’t always the norm, it is quite nicely. So strap into a crazy adventure, collect some tumors and find this creep a friend!
