Enjoyed this more than I expected. At first I thought it looked “kinda silly, kinda fun…” I wasn’t wrong but it’s more “lots of silly, lots of fun.” Give innovative “sloth-based” mechanics a go.
Kotaku summed my first impression up well when they said “Sloth Quest looks stupid, but I still wanna play it.” Took a bit to get into it at first (the controls take some getting used to) but it’s been a blast!

A Tribble in Trouble
It’s tough being a Tribble! You get caught on a ship doing what a Tribble does… eating all of their Quadrotriticale. And the Captain, in a fit of rage, beams you into the center of a nearby planet whose molten lava core is rising! It’s up to you to jump, climb and squish your way to safety as you face off against countless obstacles and treacherous enemies.
Watch out for streams and pools of red hot lava! But also keep your eye out for Glommers that are ready to pounce on you whenever you get near.
Climb your way out of the underground and you reach the canyon. Now you’ll go up against ferocious sandworms with spikes! The only time you can attack them is when they’re turning. But be quick!
Next, you’ll reach the jungle. Things get tougher as you’ll have to watch out for poisonous vines, sharp toothed plant traps and alien apes that love nothing more than chasing and squishing Tribbles! The only way to stop an ape is to land on him when he’s briefly trapped in the toothy plant trap!
Clear the jungle and you’ll be accidentally beamed back up to the ship that you started on. There you’ll find a crew that’s completely ready to greet you… with deadly phaser blasts!

Chetz is a great game that combines platform gameplay with Chess aesthetics. Don’t be fooled by the simple graphics, the game is indeed challenging and requires precision. Good exercise to train your reflexes.
Very original concept that leads to a ton of fun mix & match combos. Trying to figure out which pieces to use against which obstacles is changeling but executing those moves is harder still. Would recommend using a Xbox controller

Platform Racing 2 but awesome
I have played this game back in 2006 and I had a blast, everything was new to me, the settings, the people running around and killing snails on maple island then slimes and mushrooms in henesys hunting ground. Took many years of breaks in between, back and forth, but when they revamped the game and released big bang is when they started to lose the vast majority of players (slowly).
I know that change is needed for games to progress, but so many changes killed the game.
- if you’re a fan of mario style games or platformers and like to see big numbers when you hit monster, then try out this game
I have around 400 hours on steam but I’ve spent more than 1k hours on the other version. I must say despite the amount of dedication I’ve put into this game, I cannot reccomend it to anyone. The servers are extremely inconsistent, they need maintenance at least every week and no new or interesting content get introduced for many MANY years. Even when they do (5th Job update and lucid), its very underwhelming and sad since I waited 4 years just to receive junk and the frustration of that is what caused me to put an end what was the most time I’ve spent on a game.

Pentaquin - a new world awaits you
Explore the world of Pentaquin: Deeds Of Twilight via an interactive world map and get to know different areas of the Pentaquin universe: a mystical world that suffers under the division of its Creator.
The planet Pentaquin, which is orbited by five moons, holds many secrets and dangerous enemies. From the mystical forest elementals, to the dragons guarding the Mana River, to the former guardians of creation, the mighty four-armed and five-headed “Tero’zar”, you will encounter ever new challenges.
Travel through areas and cities scarred by civil wars, such as the former world metropolis “Terovania”. Follow the traces, left behind by your missing sister, through devastated landscapes in order to at least restore the peace of your own family in a world sinking into chaos.
The world is coming apart at the seams
After the Shaper split his soul into five new “Aspect Gods” belonging to the elements of the Pentaquin moons, not much remains of the former creator. The result of a last desperate attempt to save the world of Pentaquin, from the own madness of his increasingly ambivalent soul, presents the inhabitants with new challenges.
His once faithful servants, the “Tero’zar” guardians, weakened without the energy of their Creator, are on the brink of a bloody civil war that is sprouting in the midst of the spiritual centre of the old world order. What role will the former world capital “Terovania” play from now on in the world of Pentaquin?
Meanwhile, all over the planet, completely new Mage circles are forming around the five Aspect Gods and are trying to seize the supremacy in a shattered world. With no other aim than to assert their own values and ideals. No matter what it takes.
As a convinced follower of the light-god-magic-circle your father already had to give his life. Will your sister continue his attempt to free the world from the supposed tyranny of the other circles - or can you bring her to her senses in time and save her from an early demise?
A captivating adventure between the abysses of light and shadow awaits you.
Master your skills
In the demoralised world of Pentaquin, you will discover new secrets and hidden places through the skilful use of five learnable abilities.
As the son of a light mage, you have inherited his talent for magic. With a light blade and magical light projectiles, you will defend yourself in exciting battles against numerous opponents in close and long-range combat.
The abilities are enhanced by finding collectable upgrades and can be configured to fit your playstyle. However, you will only be able to choose a maximum of two abilities for each level: So choose wisely and adjust your strategy!
Clever combinations of abilities and enhancements can give you a clear advantage in discovering secret areas and fighting against tactically challenging bosses.
Devoul- Curse of the Soulless
A game to congratulate. The main character pulls you into the game either by the playability or with the story. The scenarios are diverse and wake up your attention - the music also. You can “play” with the time of the game and stay by the small games and quests inside of it. It’s fun. I love it.
I miss the times when games were made to leave something to the player. I miss games like this.
