Often times when I see someone describe a game as difficult, I tend to roll my eyes. One of my biggest gripes with gaming today is how easy and dumbed down many titles tend to be. Many of those games don’t even give me an option to change the difficulty. So when I saw people describe Chrono Ghost as very difficult, I was skeptical. Well, two hours into the game I had died 507 times (The game keeps track) consider me thoroughly humbled.
Warp Glider is an arcade game in its purest form. A simple concept that has a well-executed design which is addictive and fun to play. You control a glide craft and the goal is to collect as much energy as possible while avoiding obstacles such as meteors, black holes and a wide variety of enemy ships known as bandits. The more energy you collect in a single run, the more the game throws at you. If you crash and die, you start over in a true arcade fashion. No coins required though!
Sector six would be easy to dismiss as a run of the mill side scrolling shooter by looking at a few screenshots. But let me assure you, that would be a big mistake. Sector Six surprised me, Yes it’s a scrolling shoot ’em up and yes it was made by one person. But beneath the surface is a detailed game with a whole lot of unexpected depth.
Chef allows you to channel your inner Gordon Ramsay as you manage a restaurant. You start the game by creating your very own cute little chef, there are a decent amount of appearance options available to customize your doll like avatar with.
Parkitect puts you in the big comfy armchair of, well, a Parkitect. It’s up to you to design, run and manage a theme park of your own creation. You can do this via a campaign mode, or just by building your own park from scratch. Campaign mode has you creating a park in a variety of goal-oriented levels. You can also build one in a free play mode with a set of stock maps or ones you have unlocked from the campaign. If you are feeling particularly creative you can even make your own map and scenario.
RimWorld is a game you cant easily categorize, nor can you find many other games to compare it alongside. A quick look at its simplistic graphics and it would be hard to fault you for brushing it off as a simplistic indie developers pet project. But you couldn’t be more wrong.
