Roll Roll Pirate! (Browser)

4 08 2009

Roll Roll Pirate! by DevilishGames is an obstacle course game in which you are a ball pirate(?) trying to recover your tresures which were scattered through several islands.

So, what’s different on this game? The control scheme!
At first, it looks awful to control… since you mainly have a foward and backward movment, but the left and right arrow rotates the whole island!
But when you get past the tutorial island and start playing, you’ll understand why the controls are made that way!

When Pigs Fly (Browser)

2 08 2009

When Pigs Fly by dessgeega is a flying pig obstacle course that is WAY harder than this time attack video makes it look:

It’s not only the obvious obstacles (lava, spikes, etc)… but if your wing touches any corner or wall, it’s bye bye pig!
Would be so good if the swine flu also worked that way… xD
Wanna play it? Point your browser to Newgrounds’ When Pigs Fly page!

Kamal (PC)

1 08 2009

Created by a group of students at the Dutch Game Garden, Kamal is a 2D plaftormer with a different twist:

By pausing the game and switching the perspective a little bit, Kamal is able to make long jumps and reach areas he wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
Watching the video, I think I might get a bit dizzy with it… but the game looks pretty interesting anyways.
If you liked it, keep an eye at the Dutch Game Garden website… Kamal is coming soon.

This is the preview of upcoming Fig. 8 game, a bike riding game…

…that looks something out of a engineer/architecht/designer dream/nightmare. 😛

Nijikaku (PC) (NSFW)

28 07 2009

Nijikaku is the ultimate Mugen fighting game for japanese otaku!
Played it a long time ago… some months after this blog started, I remember trying to make a post about the game, but couldn’t find the info to it.
Notice it’s a game with fanmade characters, so it might have some NSFW content.

But just earlier today for some reason I remembered this japanese meme character known as Waha! (which is actually a character from a famous eroge and also symbol to a japanese image board), and with that I decided to continue searching more about it.

Abandonware – Dink Smallwood (PC)

26 07 2009

Here it is, the first Independent Game on the Abandonware section! 😀
Dink Smallwood is a hillarious game made by RTsoft in the same style as Zelda or the first Diablo games, called isometric view:

The graphics are kinda weird, and back then the game had several bugs, but the dialogues and story are absolutely hillarious.
If I remember correctly, I didn’t finish it because a bug locked my character in some part of the game… I think it was an Orc village or something. Still, had lots of fun with it.
And it seems there’s a “recent” 2006 update that fixed most bugs (the game is originally from 1997).
It’s worth giving it a shot, specially for the humor.
You can get a copy at RTsoft’s Dink Smallwood official page.

Mars TD Plus, by Taro, is an awesome tower defense style game in which you have to defend your base from aliens.

Mars TD+

It’s japanese, so you’ll find some japanese text in the middle.
But it’s fairly easy to understand and play the game even if you don’t know japanese, which is also my case.
I’ll try to help out with the stuff I already found out.
