Game Over: The Spring of Puzzle Platformers

boxes

Platformers have always been my jam. To me there is nothing quite like running and jumping through a game. When your first memories are of playing Super Mario Bros. this makes complete sense. As I get older and I game less, the Puzzle Platformer has gained a special place in my heart. They are easier to pick and play in shorter bursts. I also like the emphasis on thinking over speed. The Puzzle Platformer genre is not an overly prevalent one but this Spring, Nintendo blessed us with two solid entries available in the eShop. Both games kept me occupied on the weekends and up late at night until they were completed to my satisfaction. Continue reading

I Want Faif On The Wii U

Faif is a game that was created by the Argentinian developer Beavl for the December 2013 Ludum Dare. The theme of the year’s competition was themed, “You only get one.” After choosing 5 adjacent tiles you only get one! That is essentially how the game Faif is played. Since it’s original creation for the Ludlum Dare game jam; Beavl has added improved graphics and sounds, AI to battle against, a shop to buy spells and upgrades, music, and stability fixes. Faif is now available on Android and iOS.

Pushmo is Finally Out!

Pushmo QR Code

Ever since the Eshop was announced I’ve been excited for the potential of new downloadable 3d games. Personally, I found Freaky Forms to have a ugly art style and boring game mechanics. So, the only hope I had for a great original Eshop game before the year ends was Pushmo. Does it live up to hype I built up in my mind? Continue reading
