Terrordrome (PC)

24 07 2009

Fighting games with blood and gore with real actors is awesome… but why not take it to the next level?
Terrordrome is an unlicensed independent fighting game that has famous horror movie characters as players:

Interesting proposal, only possible on independent channels.
The game was created by Marc Echave, and seems it’s still in early stages… the official website is missing some stuff, but you can get Terrordrome official Demo already!
I dunno which characters were included, but I’m cheering for some cenobites from Hellraiser… xD

Augmented Reality Memory (PC)

24 07 2009

How about playing the older-than-my-grandma Memory game using not-too-new-but-still-new Augmented Reality technology?

From developers Beyond Reality, this memory game has a twist!
Instead of just finding cards that match, you have to find the ones that interacts with each other!
Shure, Augmented Reality is used just as a cosmetic enhancement, but it’s still pretty nice!
Technology-wise, notice they don’t use plain markers… so the game also has an image processing and recognition side to it.
It’s a concept for now, but it’s nice to see some people are still trying to make use of Augmented Reality in games in different ways…

Source: Found while researching about another game concept from the same company: PIT Strategy…

KissMa (Browser)

22 07 2009

Japanese developers Party-Tencho brings this crazy japanese browser game that kinda looks like a side scrolling kiss?-em-up game! 😛

Just like their other game, KOI2, it’s completely nonsensical and funny, with different power ups that’ll crack you up!

Check it out at Party-Tencho’s official KissMa website!

PIT Strategy (PC)

20 07 2009

For Stock Car/NASCAR fans, PIT Strategy is an Augmented Reality game with a different point of view:

From developers Beyond Reality, the idea isn’t to drive the cars, but to control the pit stops, make them as fast as you can.
It’s a game concept for now, but it’s nice to see some people are still trying to make use of Augmented Reality in games in different ways…

Source: it was a while ago, I couldn’t find exactly who sent this, but it was on a game development discussion list…

Bulletsss (PC)

19 07 2009

Bulletsss an interesting platformer-puzzle game made by indie developer Arvi Teikari:



If you think you played something similar to this previously, it’s probably Bulletzorz, the prequel to Bulletsss, also made by Hempuli (Arvi Teikari).
You basically have to reach the flag using a gun that shoots huge bullets to help out.
While testplaying it, I kinda got stuck in an early level… but it’s pretty nice and challenging.

KOI2 (Browser)

18 07 2009

By japanese developers Party-Tencho, with a game genre I love: Crazy nonsense japanese style! xD

KOI2, a play with the words Koi (love) and Koitsu (jerk, but could be used in a playful way), is the name of the game and also what the “wife” will say everytime you give a successful “flick” to her forehead! xD
When you miss, she says “Dame” (no, blocked, fail, etc).
The objective is to give the wife as many flicks to the forehead as you can… and the power ups, oh the power ups, is what makes this game truly awesome! xD
Almost forgot: Go to Party-Tencho website to play it!

Abandonware – Scorched 3D (PC)

17 07 2009

Scorched 3D is a 3D update to the original Scorched Earth DOS game.
I placed this one on Abandonware too because it’s been some years I first played it, so even though it is 3D, it’s not exactly new.

But tons of people still play it, the game is completely free, and worth trying… specially for those who gets irritated by Worms games (voices specially).
Even though Worms 3D gameplay is pretty close, the weapons on Scorched 3D, based on the original game, are far more entertaining (IMO).
Grab it at the official Scorched 3D webpage!

Bulletzorz (PC)

16 07 2009

Bulletzorz is a platformer puzzle game made by Indie developer Arvi Teikari.



Crayon like graphics and simple gameplay. You have to collect all gems in the level using a gun that shoots huge bullets… so huge you can actually ride them.

HRmageddon (Browser)

15 07 2009

HRmageddon (probably stands for Human Resources Armageddon) from THUP Games is an awesome take on the battle to keep your cubicle job! xD



Your company is merging with another one, and the owners decided that the employees will fight each other to see who keeps the job… literally.

Fragger (Browser)

12 07 2009

So, do you like exploding terrorists with grenades (in a game of course)?



If so, Harold Brenes’ Fragger is the perfect game for you.
Even more if you enjoyed games like Kitten Cannon, Yeti Games or Worms… because that’s what Fragger is about.
You have to throw grenades in given scenarios to blow terrorists up, considering the physics of it, adjusting your aim and power.

The game isn’t hard, but very enjoyable… I finished the easy level (getting my Fragmaster badge), but didn’t try it on hard yet.
