Speed Dreams is a racing simulation. I said simulation, not an arcade-racer.
I'd recommend using a steering wheel and pedals for this one.
It is very difficult to drive with mouse and keyboard, let alone stay on the road.
Now, what can I say about the handling? Well, the cars handle themselves well and predictably so they are fairly realistically modelled, and they look pretty good. The graphics of the game are functional and the sound effects are quite good. There are some oddities with car vs. car collisions, as even a slight nudge can send both cars spinning wildly, but I am willing to put this aside, considering this is still in a "release candidate" stage and doesn't accurately reflect the final product. But this gives you a good glimpse what you can expect in the future.
If you like racing sims, and don't really have any money to spend, this is worth having a look. Sadly the version distributed on Desura is outdated and on Windows 7 it installs some of the files into a wrong directory so I recommend getting it from the developer website where the latest files, additional tracks and cars are hosted.
It is the most beutiful half-life modification, that i have ever, ever, seen in my entire life! Great graphics, great story, scares are not too cheap, inersive, freaky atmosphere. Etc.
Well it is some flaws in this mod, i didnt like the combat. But that made the moment when you got your first gun, soo much better.
I can only say that i havent been this scared by a game (it does deserve to be called a full on game) since Silent Hill 2. Everything in this game is made by the developers, nothing is from original half-life. this game deserves 10/10. and it better be MOTY 2012, cant wait for more content, and the Steam standalone, thank you for a beutiful mod, Team Psykskallar, props to you.
This is a game mostly about the atmosphere and the randomly generated audio. In its simplicity it's incredible. At the same time though, I do wish there was more interaction. If you like the idea of a game where the point is about just enjoying the atmosphere and story telling, rather then worrying about winning/losing, then this is the game for you.
Fairly fun little shooter with top-down view similar to Larva Mortus or R.I.P.
You assume the role of a battlemage tasked with slaying a dragon. To help you in your quest are several different spells you can collect or buy. The spells are fairly imaginative, but some of them felt a bit overpowered, with the tradeoff of massive mana cost. However, as you progress in levels and get more skill points this will just become a minoir tradeoff which a skilled player can deal with. I found the early spell selection a little bitunderwhelming but after a few "rooms" I found some more useful spells, one of which ended up using all the way trough the game. To avoid spoiling the fun of discovery, I'll only say it is a very effective crowd control spell.
The graphics are fairly good and functional, except for the icy plains where the frozen trees blended into the background slightly. This caused a few deaths because I got stuck in a dead end which I thought I could pass.
Initially I was having problems with figuring out how to assign spell slots and use skills, but once I got it working and got the hang of it, I had a blast. Turned out that F1 opens up the help and F2 opens the character window. The game can be completed in under 2 hours, but it is well-made little shooter to kill time. Definitely worth a try.
I didn't have a chance to try the multiplayer, but I assume it is what it says on the tin.
It's all-around great, with good music, voice acting, jokes, and graphics. I kind of wish there was more variation in puzzle solutions, though with the voluntary hint system you'll never get hopelessly stuck if you don't understand a puzzle, unlike some point-and-click games.
