To say that Knigthmare Tower is an addictive title would be an understatement and we still find ourselves having another go every now and then despite completing it multiple times. To find out more about the four man team responsible for our lack or productivity we caught up with Dominique Lemire-Nault
The Last Door – Collector’s Edition might have had us almost jumping out of our skins a few times, but the compelling story kept us coming back for more. It is not often that a point & click adventure, especially one with intentionally low resolution visuals is able to pull this off so we were very grateful when Raúl Díez, PR and Community Manager for The Game Kitchen answered some of our questions about the game
The Waste Land is a great entry in the genre and while it is not without its flaws has plenty to offer fans. The gameworld is absolutely huge and the retro inspired visuals are spot on. There are also plenty of enemies to battle as well as huge bosses that take some skill to take down. The open world design is great for players who want to forge their own routes through the game, but can be confusing to those who don’t. Some areas, such as the combat, could have been made more engaging, but fans of the genre will still find plenty to enjoy.
Graphics: Imaginative, gory and very true to the 8-bit titles from which it draws inspiration.
Sound: Some nice tunes, but they repeat way too often which causes repetition.
Gameplay: Challenging and entertaining, but could have been a little more rewarding
It is hard to believe that a game where you only use one button can be this much fun, but UpperCup Football proves that it is possible. The beautiful visuals will draw you in and the addictive gameplay will keep you coming back for more. There is just so much variety in the teams and matches that you will want to keep playing just to see who you are up against next. UpperCup Football is definitely one of my favourite Android titles and one that will remain on my tablet for quite some time.
Gameplay: Very entertaining and incredibly addictive.
Graphics: Beautiful pixel art with tons of variety.
Sound: Catchy tunes and great sound effects
If you own either Frozen Synapse or Frozen Cortex on Steam you might have noticed that a shiny new discount coupon for Cloud Chamber has popped up in your inventory. The two Frozen titles are developed and published by Mode 7, while Cloud Chamber is the brainchild of Investigate North, so you might be wondering what the connection is
Cannon Brawl is an extremely addictive title that manages to blend together several genres without making any compromises. The action is fast paced, but strategic thinking is rewarded and the balance is also very good. While the Adventure mode isn’t very long, the AI battles and multiplayer modes will keep you coming back for more. If you are looking for an entertaining title to play against friends, either online or local, Cannon Brawl should be high on your wishlist.
Gameplay: Fast paced, challenging and very addictive.
Graphics: Colorful and polished, but the visuals can be a bit cluttered at times.
Sound: A decent soundtrack and good sound effects
With ten Steam titles, half of which that has never appeared in a bundle before, The Inferno offers plenty of value for money. The bundle is not lacking in variety either with platform, racing, shooting and fighting all covered
Vertiginous Golf is an Early Access title that caught our attention with its unique setting and storyline. The game is in development by Kinelco along with sister company, Lone Elk Creative and is already shaping up to be something special. Paul Barnes from Kinelco and Christian Holland were kind enough to answer some of our questions about the game
Always Remember Me has the distinction of being the first Otome Game on Steam, so how much you enjoy it will depend very much on whether you like the genre or not. The story is interesting, but the focus is more on training stats which can result in repetition, especially after multiple playthroughs. For an older game, Always Remember Me still holds up well and it is quite a relaxing experience, so if you are in the mood for something different it is worth seeking out.
Gameplay: The focus is more on juggling stats than interacting with the characters.
Graphics: The artwork still holds up well.
Sound: The soundtrack is decent, but the speech snippets can start to become repetitive
Eclipse Games recently released the rather brilliant Super Toy Cars on Steam Early Access. Eduardo Jimenez, the managing director of Eclipse Games, was kind enough to answer some of our questions
