Happy Halloween fellow earthling; even though i don’t celebrate Halloween i found a perfect game for this day. Closure is a very atmospheric and dark puzzle platformer, where you have to carry around a ball of light, which will illuminate your surroundings allowing you to walk and jump on the ground. If the part is not illuminated you fall and die. The tricky part is that you can’t...
Super Castlevania IV - SNES
One of my favorites. Perfect gameplay, atmosphere, music, bosses, etc. You can’t have a bad time playing this game, it really shows the difference between 8-bit and 16-bit, and the greatness that Konami showed during the 16-bit era. PS: Maybe the link won’t work, but i’m sure you have some other “means” to play this masterpiece. [Play]
Zombies Ate My Neighbors - SNES
Preparing for Halloween, what can be more fitting that shooting your zombie neighbors?. A gem of a game that hasn’t had the recognition it deserves. [Play]
Another one for designers and typography lovers. Drag the pink nodes and make a nice looking font. How close where you?, are you ready to be a typographer? [Play]
Jump and jump. I think the character of this game would’ve been better as a flea. You have to move to the left by jumping, and just jumping. There are a lot of pits so you have to calcuate the jumps right by applying the right pressure to the UP key. Can you HOP through? [Play]
Cows and colors. Cowlorful is a platform game where you play as a cow that colors everything on its path. You have to color 50% of the level before you can leave and keep coloring all over the place. It’s got a nice look and feel, sadly the controls are a bit slippery and making the double jump by keeping the UP key pressed is a bit strange, i’d much rather do that by double...
This is a simple and beautiful game. Move your mouse to speed up or slow down the car, get the bonus points and watch out for the walls. As the game lacks music, i recommend something nice like this while you’re playing. Great game for a break and a nice time. [Play]
Right off turn the music off„ put something nice and enjoy controlling 2 characters at the same time. You have to get them both on the red platforms, so they turn green and you move to the next level. This isn’t an easy game, so focus and split your maneuvers!. [Play]
Super Double Dragon - SNES
It’s not my favorite of the series, but it’s a good entry and very fun to play with a friend. Though the new moves and powers add some variety the game can be slow and repetitive, but the graphics and music will keep you coming for more and beating guys without stopping. [Play]
The Lion King - SNES
I remember getting this game on a birthday, finishing it in a couple of days. The fact that you transition from baby lion to an adult just like in the movie is pretty cool. It’s an easy game, with nice graphics, animations, and a ton of nostalgia. Not the best Disney game for the SNES, but still good. [Play]
Solve the puzzles. I’m drunk. [Play]
Missilebreak Outvaders is a fun mix between Breakout and Space Invaders. You have to catch the missiles that the aliens throw at you and bounce them back to them!. Once they’re blue you can make them explode with the right mouse button to make a chain reaction. The game has a really catchy music and old school graphics that will make you feel right back at the arcade. [Play]
Slip 'n Slide
A classic puzzle game with nice graphics and soothing music. Get the key and exit the stage making as fewer moves as possible. Have a great Tuesday!. [Play]
How much do you know about video games?, a little?, a lot?, you can test your geeknes right here with Geek Mind. Good luck and don’t rub your score into your friends faces, it isn’t nice. [Play]
I don’t really know where to qualify this game, so i’ll just say what it is about; it is about moving letters and achieving the perfect kerning. This game will be a kick for designers and typhography lovers, and not so much for anyone wanting explosions, but hey, you have to try something different once in a while right? [Play]
Yoshi's Cookie / SNES
Colorful and fun puzzle game? check. Mario and Yoshi? check. It’s got all you need, have fun!. [Play]
Flashback - The Quest for Identity / SNES
The game everybody thought it was a sequel to Another World, but it isn’t. A great adventure in a far away place. The rotoscope is a very nice (albeit outdated) way of animating games, and here it really shows well. Did you know that this game is in the Guiness Book?, it’s the best selling french game of all time. I don’t know any other french game, but this is the king!. ...
Do you like weird Japanese stuff?, i sometimes do, so i choose Dayori for today. Dayori is an escape the room game, full of bizarre characters and artifacts. The game is in japanese, but it almost features no text, so it shouldn’t be a problem. There is more of this developer, so hang on, we’ll be in bizarro-japanese-world some other day. [Play]
One and One Story
It’s nice to see the influence of “big” indie games on minor or lighter games like One and One Story. I started the game and inmediatly i reminded Braid and Limbo, which is a great thing. The goal is to reunite these two lovers by pushing boxes, jumping and avoiding spikes and heights. The controls are a little stiff, but manageable. I think you’ll have a good time with...
You are a Box
Well, you are a box in this game. You have to save the white character from the crayon spikes. It’s nice to see some variation in puzzle platformers and make you play as the platform instead of the plataformee (is that propher grammar?). Cool game!. [Play]
The sequel to yesterday’s game. Even better than the first one. Lighter and more colorful are the colors of the game, giving it a more varied feel, and the double jump along with the dash make the game feel faster and more manageable. Have lots of fun, i hope to see another K.O.L.M. [Play]
Is not every day that you stumble upon a gem like this. K.O.L.M. is a platformer in the metroidvania area, with a very atmospheric sound and feel. I don’t wanna spoil anything, just play it, i’m sure you’ll have a great time wondering around, discovering and travelling in this bleak world. [Play]
Racing to the future!. [Play]
It’s one of those games that you don’t see so often these days. Perfect blend of strategy, rpg and platforming. ActRaiser, always a joy. [Play]
Totally Odd is very stylish adventure point & click game, i love the look and feel of these plasticine world. Just go from door to door, solving the somewhat challenging puzzles and admiring the amazing look and feel of this game. I wouldn´t want to work in Horrificorp (great name BTW). [Play]
Prizma Puzzle Challenges
The objective of this puzzle game is to connect the Start node to the Final node, simple he?. Not quite. You’ll have to break cristals, reflect the beam and many more things. The interface is a little distracting, but it doesn’t kill the game. PS: Rip Steve Jobs [Play]
Do you like typing?, good!, so you´ll have a lot of fun with this game. This game is pretty much like Typing of the Dead, but with a spaceship and shooting. It’s strangely addictive and fun, so pound those keys away!. [Play]
The Case of the Vanishing Entree (NSFW)
If you´re underaged, do not play this, play this instead. This is an adult themed choose-your-own-adventure kind of game, with very dirty words and strong sexual subjects. If you´re up for it, it can be quite an experience, light a candle, pour some wine, and get lost in this particular game. [Play]
I love to play a game that leaves me with a “wow” feeling, and this one of those games. In Mega Mash you play a mash of classic retro games modified a bit. The awesome part is that the swap is on the fly in the levels, so there’s not a “platformer” level or “shooter” level, it’s all mixed between!. So great, go play it now and start your week...
Castlevania Bloodlines - SEGA Genesis
One of the most underrated of the series, and it shouldn’t, so give it a shot if you haven’t already. The variety in the scenery of the stages is a nice change for the typical transilvania Castlevania setting, which goes great along the nice graphics and enticing music. I hope you have a great sunday, rest and relax. [Play]
Castlevania 3 - NES
This week was Castlevania´s 25 annyversary, so to celebrate it here is my favorite Castlevania on the NES, the first to introduce alucard, branching paths, and multiple characters. Really a culprit for the series on the NES, until the masterpiece Super Castlevania IV on the SNES. It doesn´t run very smoothly and the menu is all bugged up, but i really wanted to faeture this game, and i assume...
