Simple but funkillermanjaro | Aug. 25, 2013 | Review of The Adventures of TinTin: The Game
While this game isn't exactly going to be topping any 'greatest games of all time' lists, it's still worthwhile picking up for some good old fashioned platforming fun. The game actually does a good job with presentation, the levels are generally quite colourful and nice to look at, the 3D parts still look fairly decent, and the voice acting isn't all that bad either.
In terms of gameplay, the movement, combat and controls are all very simple, but that's all this type of game needs. The game isn't very long or difficult, meaning you can play through quite casually with not much concentraion needed. The only downside I found with this game is at times the camera angle in 3D sequences was a bit annoying.
To wrap up, if you want a fun platformer then this is ideal, just don't expect to be coming back to replay it much.
Amazingly addictive!killermanjaro | July 7, 2013 | Review of Worms Crazy Golf
Worms and golf might seem an odd combination, but then years ago pairing a worm with a bazooka seemed an odd thing to do, and look how much fun that turned out to be!
In essence this game plays and looks like any other traditional Worms game, the only difference being instead of ninja roping across a map to drop a mine on an unsuspecting worms head, your weapon of choice is now a set of golf clubs. (which are upgradeable by getting points to buy new ones).
The holes are well done and still manage to retain all the worms humour in the form of sheep, old grannies, mines, and randomly placed worms for a bit of target practice, if that wasn't enough to keep you entertained they've thrown in some teleports and huge cannons that can blast your ball for miles too.
Granted whilst this isn't a game that you're likely to play for hours on end in one sitting, it is fun when played a few holes at a time, though you'll find times when you do get hooked as you think 'I'll just complete one more hole'.
All in all, whilst this isn't quite as satisfying as lobbing a well placed holy hand grenade next to your friends last surviving worm, it is a refreshing change to the other Worms games and well worth picking up.
And the best part is the default worm you can use is of course the veteran worm that started it all, and his name was Boggy B!
Great game that plays as well as it looks!killermanjaro | July 7, 2013 | Review of Bastion
Right from the start you get to see the great artwork and visuals that this game has. The gameplay plays smoothly and is lots of fun, with a combat system that works well, you do have to sometimes be a bit careful of rolling off the edge of the level by mistake whilst in combat. In addition to that the soundtrack and voice work is outstanding, and rounds of the whole package! Worth picking up and playing!
