Don't own a console, but indie games that are well accepted on the Xbox are usually good as I've found :D

Sweet! I bought Apple Jack 1 & 2 through Xbox indie games about a year ago and I've been wondering when It would come to PC. Needless to say I bought the PC versions as well. The soundtrack is amazing and I love the fact that this game was able to make me (20) my brother (21) and my mother(mid 50's) sit down together and play it like the old days with Mario, Super Metroid, Zelda, and etc. Not many games now a days that my mother would even consider playing, so I'm glad I ran into this game. Originally bought it because of the Mario 2 reference in the artwork.

Glad you like it! I've had a lot of people say they play it with their girlfriends/ wives etc. I don't know if it's the nostalgia or the cute pandas, but it does seem pretty female friendly.

You should have been able to jump with the space bar in AJ2 but there was a bug - now fixed for the full release.

Seems like you can't rely on Unity's physics as much as I thought. Too vague and error prone to use without bespoke collision code etc.

Sugar bowl was empty, so I absent-mindedly poured half a bag of the stuff into my tea. What a plank.

FFX has got harder or I've got crapper, one of the two.

If things continue as they are, mobile phones will soon be the size of those huge wind-up army phones from old war films.

Apr 17 2014, 2:04pm

@AngelosLH Perhaps you're right. I'll try to channel my inner 15 year old girl while playing and see if that helps. That sounds wrong.

Apr 16 2014, 1:38pm

I'm still slogging through FFX, despite not really enjoying it. Why do I put myself through this?

@JamsMatalans You're getting nothing from me, sunshine. No bread bin, nothing. #Dealwithit #Breadbin

Apr 16 2014, 4:48am

@JamsMatalans Yes! Congratulations! It is the Mario theme! Unfortunately you were too slow to win the bread bin, but thanks for playing!

Apr 16 2014, 2:55am

@alasdairferrie It is not. No bread bin for you.

Apr 16 2014, 2:22am

Guess the videogame tune and win a bread bin: 'Do Do Doo, Dodododoo Do Do Do Doo, Do Do Doo Do Do Doo' #winabreadbin
