Breakout the Bible – So let’s break it out and start reading!

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Okay, maybe some of you don’t want to do that, and that’s fine.  Here’s one way to have some fun and read your Holy Bible too, and that’s with Breakout the Bible from Divine Games.  This is Divine Games’ first outing and they want to make fun and morally sound games, at least that’s their slogan, and I can dig it.  Like I said in a preview for Tribulation Knights, I don’t much care about mixing fiction with my beliefs, but there’s no problem here with Breakout the Bible.  See it’s block-bricking game like… wait for it… Breakout!  I enjoyed it for what it was.  Here’s a video of it in action:

Anirah – Riddle of the Pharaohs (with no riddles or Pharaohs)

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Anirah, Riddle of the Pharaohs by Lost Luggage Studios is supposed to be an Egyptian-themed tile matching game similar to Mahjongg.  Okay seriously, there’s no real Egyptian theming to the game.  You can select a skin though that is somewhat, but by default, it’s just, well, default.  It’s not a match-3 game at all, but it is similar to Mahjongg.  Did I like it?  About as much as I do Mahjongg.  Essentially I like playing Mahjongg but it’s never my first choice.  I usually end up getting sucked into multiple games if I start one, and that’s sort of how this game is.  Here’s a brief video to show you how to play, and if you’re still confused, I will help clear it up with the rest of the review.


Mystic Mine – Mystically fun maybe?

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Nov04 Edit: Reposting this because the developer of Mystic Mine actually entered the drawing (and won for that matter). I really don’t know what’s so “Mystic” about Mystic Mine by Koonsolo.  Maybe the fact that it’s so dang fun and yet so simple (yes, you know the drill by now we LOVE simple), easily understood, easy to play but difficult to master.  Maybe it’s the fact that an optical illusion allows you to reach all points (you can only go down).  Maybe it’s just that when people start playing it, it mystically can engage them for hours.  Myabe it’s the fact that you can have 6 people ON ONE KEYBOARD!  Now if that isn’t Mystical, it’s certainly hard core!  Okay don’t mistake my saying it’s hard core for it being a hard core game.  In fact it’s very casual, however it should generate a lot of exitement.  This game is only one button, or mouse click.  But you want to just click the button.  It’s easier than the mouse I think.  In any case I’ve got to say it’s a must buy.  You want to know quickly?  Just look at this vid…

If you really want to know why I feel this way, continue reading, otherwise, these aren’t the droids you’re looking for, move along…
