Rogue's Tale

Game review

This is a great game and the ingame chat feature makes it a lot of fun to play online.

Anyone who enjoys turn based RPG, strategy or Roguelikes should give this game a shot. It should also be noted that the game is still under development and continuously being expanded. It has a high degree of polish compared to most indie games available at the alpha or beta stage.

Verdict: Spike Lee says 'BOOM! Just stick it in yo Genesis!' Youtu.be

POP: Methodology Experiment One

Game review

The short: Wario Ware + super lo-fi TV clips + seizure inducing art = POP: Methodology Experiment One.

The slightly longer:
A very unique game that actually manages to throw some fun in with the crazy visuals. Some 'art' games try a little too hard e.g. Passages, but this one is fun even if it does at times appear to have a political message, such as the 'liberation' level.

Overall I recommend that you play this odd little game. It's very short, it's fun and it doesn't do anything too groan inducing in the name of art. The developer even had the common courtesy to supply a score at the end. This is important because the display of the score is an admission of being a video game, something that many art/indie developers are too narcissistic to include.

Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle

Game review

The short: A clean, polished roguelike that is easy to jump into and start playing immediately. Prepare to die often, learn from your mistakes and most importantly have fun.

The long: I just booted up the game for the first time and I am very impressed. Graphically it is retro styled but it is very polished looking. The graphics also belie the depth and complexity of the game. Do not mistake this game to be an overly simplified game which wears its indie flag as an excuse for poor gameplay and graphics.

I have not had a chance to do anything beyond very simple crafting, but I have crafted several helmets, hats and wooden arrows. There are 4 crafting slots but so far I have put in many things in the slots and only figured out how to utilize 1 material in 1 slot. It also seems, like Dungeons of Dredmore (DoD), that there are different stations with which to craft with although none appear to be portable.

The tone of the game is somewhat silly with many jokes to be found, but the stats, items and crafting is far less convoluted than DoD.

My main criticism appears to be very little story included, which is the usual for the genre, but I always enjoy having a goal, lots of flavor text and lore to find. Either way as a roguelike this isn't necessary to have fun.

Overall this is a fantastic game and is truly worthy of an 8+ rating, unlike many games on Desura (how games that are so incomplete they are near unplayable get a 9+ score is beyond me). If necessary I will update this review.

Not sure why the average score is so low but this game is a lot of fun. I recently picked it up in the Indie Royale Mayhem Bundle and I've played it on STEAM quite a bit. It is similar to the classic Pipe Dream (and similar) games, but the twist is that the pieces are fixed and must be spun into place. There are multiple game modes and when things are going good and you have drop accounted for its a blast.
