A week in review, the best free and maybe-should-be-free games of the week for August 15 to 22, 2009
All games free unless otherwise noted
Osmosis / (Hemisphere Games) / ($10)
A classic amobe-eating game, done fast paced and furious.
Pizza Morgana /(Corbomite)/($9 for first episode/$34.95 for full season)
The first episode ‘Monsters and Manipulations in The Magical Forest’ was released last Saturday and runs about 60 minutes long. Cell-shaded with
Maya Kai (Reve Au Lait)
A schmup Cave would be proud of, even down to the bullet-hell of a screen filled with vicious purple bullets. Four levels and two varying characters to add some replay value. A perfect short distraction.
Scrapp (Andrew Brophy)
Fig. 8 (Intuition Games)
Players guide a bicycle around a diagram drawing pretty squiggels on the page for points. Nice and pretty.
Boom (Jan Willem Nijman)
4-bit Gameboy-styled replica of Doom. Nijman is responsible for the exceptional 10800 Zombies. One of the few bit-based FPS’.
Pandora’s Gearbox / (Indiebird’s) / (Mac release this week)
Players have to get the ball to the red area through what is a weird shaped bottle without being able to see the obstacles inside. Players place their own obstacles inside to steer the ball through.
