A Valley Without Wind 2 


A Valley Without Wind 2 carries the trait of all the best games: taking the best of various genres and blending them together seamlessly to create a new gaming experience. A Valley Without Wind 2 combines the best of old-school platform-shooter games with TBS games. You can choose where and how to explore the game world, how you want to upgrade your characters, their classes, the abilities you want to unlock and how you want to fight the enemies in your path. In A Valley Without Wind 2 you play as a mage whose aim is to share to power of immortality—which the evil Demonica has been using to spread tyranny through the land—and in doing so see an end to the evil. Though the idea of having immortality, which the game grants, might seem to kill any challenge, there’s actually a good deal of difficulty in A Valley Without Wind 2. You must lead your band of resistance to take back the land the overlord now resides over. To do so, you’ll have to recruit allies, build structures and unlock all manner of secrets. You’ll also be engaging in side-scrolling mission in order to reach the wind generators and […]

Steamworld Dig


Robots. They’re the future, right? Surely the day will eventually come when we humans make robots so darned clever and powerful that they take over.  And when that happens, humanity’s going to be pretty screwed, just like they are in SteamWorld Dig, in which we’re all extinct. We’re so darned extinct that there’s no trace of us left. That’s why one robot’s setting out to dig into the planet to find the proof of our existence. And lucky for all of us, that robot’s journey is flipping exciting, so exciting that it could just be one of the best Nintendo 3DS games on the market. Rusty is an old mining robot. He’s gone and gotten himself the deeds to a Wild West mine and is intent on digging up tons of loot and giving it to Tumbleton on the planet’s surface. Poor old Tumbleton could use that loot. It’s a pretty wasted place. Only a few poor miserable robots live in Tumbelton now. The rest left long ago. But they’ll return, if only you can grab that loot and start developing the town. Sadly, the only thing that you’ve got to start dicking with is this crappy old pickaxe. But […]

10 Second Ninja


2D action platformer 10 Second Ninja has been garnering a lot of press attention of late, partly due to its premise, partly due to its excellent game design. Created by Dan Pearce and featuring music by Tim Rurkowsi, 10 Second Ninja has you filling the shoes of a ninja killing Nazi robots whose leader, Robot Hitler, wants you dead. Basically it’s that dream I had the other week, but in video game form.

Anrew Gleeson’s new game Melodisle casts you out at sea on a lonely island. You play as a little character who looks a lot like Fez. As this little guy, you’ll be running and jumping in typical platform-game style but, uniquely, you’ll also be engaging in some singing, hence the title “Melodisle.” That’s right, this is a music platformer in which you affect the environment by using your voice.
