I like this game because it has a lot of potential for being a really good platformer. The dev is very passionate about his project and really wants to continue, buy the game and have fun!

This game saved my life.

I am 22.

My ex-wife and I have a daughter together, and adopted our son together. They are now both 4 years old.

When we were going through our separation, I found myself lost and miserable. I was self destructive. I got so mad one day from everything spiraling out of my control that I punched some concrete in a moment of overwhelming emotion. That caused me to break my 5th metacarpal in my right hand… my working hand… my games hand.. the hand that I held and carried my children to bed with.. The hand I desperately needed to make sure I could continue to provide.

Tale of six

An interesting game with an unusual idea. If you like hard platformers (but you have to be ATTENTIVE, and sometimes you have to think) or you want to try your luck, then this game is for you.

Simple graphics, but was a well made and challenging platformer.

CUBE-e 2

CUBE-e 2

A demonstration of how to annoy player just for the heck of it.

Real player with 0.1 hrs in game

Lucky me gets to write the first review for CUBE-e 2, which is a 2D retro pixel puzzle platformer/shooter from known asset flippers, Piece of Voxel. This is a basic retro pixel shooter/platformer game where you guide a robot over various platforms on some planet, dodging spinning blades and shooting robots that float from the sky before they can shoot you. Ho hum.

They chose to use obsolete retro pixel “art” as a substitute for contemporary PC graphics. It’s unclear if this is due to lack of budget or talent, regardless, the overall visual quality of the game is extremely low as a result. Resolution and controls are locked. These flaws push this game far below minimum acceptable standards for PC. There’s also an insulting $10 USD price tag for this garbage. Yeah, $10, the same money that would get you one of hundreds of AAA games on sale. Or this trash.

I started playing just a bit to take a break from my uni work and I spent 3 hours in the first sit. BEWARE, it’s a deep game with multiple choices, make sure you check the shop before you spent your ability points so you can buy the right things for yourself and the ship. If you spend your points lately the game will be way more challenging. The game needs more feedback to the player and be more clear at some points with the management of the ship and the ability points but, if you are patient and spend some time with it you will love it.

Real player with 5.4 hrs in game

Has great potential as a coop 2D side scroller mixing both infantry combat and spaceship to spaceship combat. Some of the UI navigation is a bit clunky and takes some getting used to and will hopefully be polished over time.

Game description key-points: puzzle clicker, to detonate bombs in time.

Real player with 7.7 hrs in game

Space Monster is a physical puzzle with a side view. Exploding bombs throw a space monster into a black hole.

The monster from space is a threat to the planet Earth. You can’t kill a monster, but you can throw it into a black hole and save the Earth!

The game has 50 levels that increase in difficulty as you progress.

Game for logical thinking, reaction speed, good for children.

Turbo Shell

Turbo Shell

Turbo Shell is a fast-paced 2D platformer with a unique movement mechanic: instead of running and jumping, you push and pull yourself through a sci-fi world with the help of the EPS (Egg Propulsion System).

Pick up the EPS and get going

The EPS (Egg Propulsion System) allows you to glide through the sci-fi world of Turbo Shell: push yourself off surfaces within a range using the blue ray, or pull yourself towards walls and ceilings using the orange ray.

Using the EPS is easy to learn. By perfecting your moves, you’ll find even faster and more efficient ways to complete a level. Enjoy the rewarding feeling of skillfully flying through the space station and climb up the ranks on the leaderboard.

Overcome obstacles and avoid hazards

Sizzling laser barriers, flying buzzsaws and hazardous corridors will pave your path. Avoid them to make sure you won’t splash!

Turbo Shell is a precision platformer and completing levels without getting smashed will become more difficult on the way. Instant respawns and checkpoints will help you stay motivated and reach your goal.

Collect all Targets

The universe as we know it is in danger - but as Craig, you can save it by collecting targets that are scattered throughout each level. Make sure to reach them all in high-speed to get rewarded with a spot on the leaderboard!

  • Unique movement mechanic:

    Push and pull yourself through space - in the first game that’s both repulsive and attractive at the same time.

  • Fast-paced precision platformer:

    Collect all targets as fast as you can - but beware of the deadly hazards…

  • Challenging and rewarding:

    Prepare to splash. A lot. Instant respawns will get you going again in no time!

Space Crisis

Space Crisis

I picked up all 12 of these Nacks Soft games. They are essentially just sprite swaps, so either wait for a 90% sale or pick up the bundle if it’s less than $10 so you are getting the content equivalent of a decently sized full game.

The difficulty curve of this one isn’t as well-designed as Accel Magician Mimi and it’s missing the 1P vs. 2P mode. It’s space-themed though. It’s a very soft recommend – a C-range, middling game.

Pick up if under $1 or if you get all 12 games for under $10.
