Full disclosure: I was a playtester for this game.
In Hack Grid each level has a different setup of pieces and trails within a 4x4 grid (sometimes it’s smaller).
In order to move a piece, it must have a straight line of trails or empty sockets leading to a differently colored piece. What makes the grids interesting is not only the different setups of pieces, but also the way the trails connect between them; It varies from level to level, and sometimes the lack of a direct trail between two pieces can trip you up, if you are not paying enough attention to the trails.

Do you have some free time during your evening? Do you like puzzle games? Are you nostalgic for DOS aesthetics? Great, then Hack Grid is a game just for you!
This is a well-made game. Sure, it’s relatively short, but I think it has just enough puzzles to explore its simple, yet entertaining gameplay. I didn’t encounter any bugs, it runs smoothly. Graphics are minimalistic, very nice, and you can spice them up a little with CRT filter. Puzzle themselves have a right level of difficulty, and you get some new mechanic once in a while, so you don’t get bored.
A cool puzzle game. I had a lot of fun playing, highly recommend!

An amazing relaxing and atmospheric game! It’s short but worth for the experience! The music it’s one of the best part of it, sometimes I’ve just open the game to hear while doing others things! Recomended!
Rock ‘N’ Roll Defense
Rock ‘N’ Roll Defense is tower defense game. The concept is simple: build your towers and protect your kingdom. In this game the towers are speakers and the kingdom is a stage with a rock band playing a concert. You must protect them of pop, country, and etc fans. The idea is interesting but some points of the game annoy you too much.
To pass some levels you need luck, not ability, not the right towers, you need LUCK, it pissed me off. There are a few kind of enemies in each world (the game has 4 worlds), some of the enemies moves fast than others, so the obvious would be the fastest ones coming first than others, right? Not in this game.

Ok this game’s awesome.
I mean, everything’s completely old and we’ve seen all of this tons of times.. but can we speak about the idea?!
Basically this is the most classic tower defense you’ll play - enemies come in waves, they have a pre-drawn route and if they reach the core you get hit on your health; hence you have to put towers in fixed places, you can upgrade them and they’re all different for what concerns firing speed, type and so on.
But the whole setting isn’t the usual fantasy or medieval thing, but it’s hard rock. Yeah, you have to defend a hard rock stage and your towers are actually different types of sound amplifiers and speakers.
PAC-MAN™ Championship Edition DX+
This game is absolutely bonkers, in a good way though.
PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+ is like normal PAC-MAN, only the map is rotated 90 degrees, there are tons of ghosts instead of just 4, and it’s a race to eat as many dots, food and ghosts as possible before the timer runs out.
The game is split into several boards with different structures, dot and ghost positioning, and paths to follow. None of them really feel any harder than the others, but they’re all difficult in their own way. The DLC boards are a fun addition, but I wouldn’t recommend you buy them separately from the game, since it’s cheaper to buy the full Big Eater pack and just get all of it at once.
It is time to munch, chomp, and manoeuvre your way through another series of mazes with Bandai Namco’s notorious pelt eating ghost munching spherical maze racer, Pacman in “PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+”. This game is not your original Pacman but a new fast pace version that will keep you on the edge of your seat every step of the way.
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ is an arcade score attack game that takes its inspiration from the original Pelt Muncher that was first released in 1981. This time around though Pac-man has been turned into a speed run crushing dynamo taking on hoards of ghost that are determined to get in your way as you try to climb to the top of the leader. With that being said, lets begin talking about the gameplay.
