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.

Abandonware – Yie Ar Kung Fu (NES)

30 07 2009

Nice fighting game that came with those all in one NES cartridges.

One of the predecessors of modern 2D fighting games maybe, it was fairly simple.
I don’t remember the number exactly but you had to fight unarmed some 5 or 6 enemies equiped with different weapons (minus the last boss if I’m not mistaken).
Then, when you killed the last boss, the whole thing restarted with increased difficulty.
I remember almost completing 3 loops before dying… and I also remember there’s this technique of jumping bouncing on the wall that made killing most of them fairly easy… you just had to calculate the right distance for each one of them.
It also has a bonus stage were knifes and ninja stars comes flying at you… very difficult to pass.

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

…that looks something out of a engineer/architecht/designer dream/nightmare. 😛
From Intuition Games. One of the creators Greg Wohlwend describes it neatly: ‘you control a bicycle through technical diagram suburbia’.
