It has been yet another fantastic week for the online indie gaming, having more and more great titles coming out of the woodwork. This week I made the decision to have a week away from Ludum Dare entries after the previous week being a round up on the winners, it was time to look elsewhere. Not to say I won’t be going back to the Ludum Dare entries in the future just it is nice to break it up a bit, especially considering how many great games are floating around the internet. As always to read the full article click the title and for a link to the game click the picture.
A very fun zombie infection strategy game. The aim of the game is to infect as many people in any one area as you can, sounds easy? far from it. With levels that increase quite substantially in difficulty it becomes a very challenging game very quickly. With some upgrade elements Infectonator 2 is a great title to waste a bit of time trying to infect the world one city at a time.
This is a fantastic retro arcade styled shooter with the overall aim of the game getting the highest score whilst unlocking new weapons and levels in the process. Although I am sure many people have played this title it is just a great deal of fun to sit down and play a few rounds. You can easily play Super Crate Box for a good hour and not even realise it, engaging gameplay and all around fun and awesome pixel art visuals the game plays fantastic.
A work in progress but Digi Adventures takes its inspiration from the likes of Tron, setting the scene in a computer environment. The art styling is very nice with great use of lighting effects to create quite a sinister feel to the game overall. Digi Adventures is a platformer set in this interesting world with the aim to reacquired all your possessions. There is a large selection of levels which contain interesting enemies and some nice jumping puzzles making Digi Adventures rather fun overall.
Although still an early web alpha the gameplay is solid (in both sense of the world) and will have you frustrated for hours. The gameplay is ultra hard but very rewarding and plays very smooth throughout The idea is to get to the end of the level, hitting the checkpoints faster than all competition, however with your rocket literally shatters on every tap making it often near impossible (at least for me). At the moment they are running a competition that if you can finish in the top ten on any leaderboard you will be invited to the standalone alpha, but hurry the competition ends later this week.
A fantastically created point and click game with a whole load of humour infused in it. You play as a child hell bent on destroying the world and with a list of tasks to complete to usher in the end of the world. The tasks range from creating brimstone to rebuilding your pirate ship. Apocalypse Later has a whole load of humour much of which reminds me of the good old days of the good Family Guy episodes. If you enjoy point and clicks and a good laugh then this title is for you.
This concludes yet another great week of procrastinating, next week will be formatted slightly differently in the titles and such, but don’t worry it will still contain tons of fun new free games to play on your coffee break.
