Okay so the title of the review is a bit antagonistic. At least, it might seem that way to the game’s developer. I might normally be inclined to change it to put the most positive spin on the game, but this is exactly how I felt while playing the game. I want to let you know up front that I only played it for 8 or more hours but didn’t complete it. In B.E.E.P. by Big Fat Alien Games, you play a little robot named B.E.E.P. which stands for Built Exploration Extra-solar Planets. Actually you play a bunch of them as you undoubtedly will die many, many times. The game is essentially a physics-based puzzle-platformer (say that “five-times-fast”). If this is your cup-of-tea then read on.

Dude… Wait, what? Today’s game review is a browser-based game called Cat, Cat, Watermelon! It’s by Lexaloffle, don’t you know? Yep… Good old Cat, Cat, Watermelon. It’s about umm Cats and… oh… Watermelons. Apparently there are more than just cats and watermelons to this game… there are also beach balls and umm… bowls. and… more things… that you can stack. Can you stack all the objects without it toppling over? I’m sure there are a ton of objects in this physics-based game. What? You mean I didn’t tell you it was physics-based? Well now you know, and knowing is half the battle (I think I used that line before, blame the 80’s GI Joe cartoon)
Since I didn’t have a video of the game and since you can actually play it on the web (no downloading or anything!) I’ve decided to give you an idea of the game with this video… Trust me there really is a game review after the video.
The morning was cool and still as a thick fog crept over the battle fields. The only sounds that could be heard was the distant sounds of clinking armor, and of cook fires being put out by kicking sand or water buckets. “Prepare the firing line.” said Cunningham to his Bow-master. Bow-master Rowan was also his Arch-Duke Cunningham’s Sergeant-at-Arms. Rowan walked silently to the archers at the ready. The fog was starting to lift as Rowan dropped his arm with his thumb pointing downward. The line of archers dipped their arrows in small braziers which held a curiously blue flame. Rowan raised his hand as the archers raised their bows, with their blue-flamed arrows, and then just as the fog lifted he dropped his arm! There was still no sound except for the sound of hundreds of arrows being loosed into the air.
