Avatar Dash – Run, Avatar, run!

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Would you like to play a game?!? You would?  On your Xbox 360?  Really?  What kind of game would you like, I know… a platformer (more or less), where you run and… umm run… and run and run and run and run and run and run and run and run and run and run and run and run…  I know, I know, Canabalt – except that’s only for flash.  Wouldn’t it be great to play Canabalt on the Xbox?  Well now you can… er… sort of… with Avatar Dash – ok ok, I know it’s not the same game… or is it?  Check out this refreshing video and tell me what you think.

More after the jump.


Kaotik Puzzle – A face full of AWESOME!

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Okay, okay, apologies if you don’t find match-3 puzzle games awesome.  I just had to put that in the title though because the title is a face full of awesome!  I could have said a fist full of awesome, but a face full seems more in your face, you know because it has face in the title.  Anyway.  Our next review is for said match-3 puzzle on Xbox Live Indie Games game called Kaotik Puzzle from Spanish developer Silvermax (That’s Spanish as in Spain, not the language, although they speak the language in Spain because it’s… well you get the idea).  Anyways if you were to play one match-three or puzzle game in your whole life time, this would be it.  The guy has pulled out all the stops!  Here’s a vid showing you what it’s all about.  I believe it’s probably the same vid that I posted in the preview, but here’s a refresher. 

Also even though it says it’s coming soon, it’s out now, at the Xbox Live Marketplace.  I really dig this game so that might be all you need to know, however if you want to know why please read after the jump.


Awesome Tank and A Game of Tennis

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

The title says it all.  Well it doesn’t have the words “it all” in the title, but you know what I mean.  This time since the Banner Entrant entered two games I decided to put them together in this one review.  Awesome Tank is a Tank game reminiscent of Combat for the Atari 2600 (or Atari VCS if you prefer).  A Game Of Tennis is reminiscent of, well, a game of Tennis.   Actually it’s reminiscent of Pong that’s reminiscent of Tennis.  Well actually it’s reminiscent of Pong which is reminiscent of Tennis for Two which was reminiscent of Tennis.  Wow.  That’s a lot of reminiscing.  Enjoy that trip down memory lane?  Good.  In any case…  I’ll have to say thumbs up to Awesome Tank (and no it’s not the same people that made Awesome Soccer), and thumbs down to A Game of Tennis.  The rest of the review after the jump.
