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.

Edit: Reposting this because the developer of The Cherokee Indian (Jr Jellybeans) actually entered the drawing. I know nothing about American Indians. And yes I call them American Indians because Columbus thought he was sailing to the West Indies, as opposed to Indian Americans those that actually come from India and become legal citizens of the US. As far as Wikipedia says, they are a “Native American people originally from the Southeastern United States. In the 19th century, the Cherokees were known as one of the "Five Civilized Tribes", because they had assimilated numerous cultural and technological practices of their European-American neighbors. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, they are the largest of the 563 federally recognized Native American tribes in the United States. Of the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes, the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians have headquarters in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is located in Cherokee, North Carolina.” Okay so basically I just filled some space with copy and paste from Wikipedia. I did this because I don’t think any jokes concerning the Cherokee would be appropriate. Plus I don’t know any jokes concerning them or any American Indians, and it would probably just be in bad taste if I did. So now on with the game yeah!
I’m sorry but the game needs a little work, it’s ok, but it’s not great. See more, next.
I don’t think there are many flying (plane, jet, etc) games on XBox Live Indie Games, but then again, I guess I haven’t played all that many. So when I heard about RC-Airsim I decided here was something I haven’t tried yet. Actually that’s not what I thought, the creator was on twitter, so I heard about it through that, and decided to review it for my next XBLIG game. However I hadn’t tried it yet, so I could have thought that. But I didn’t. But I could have. I could go on forever like this. Okay so I wasn’t expecting much with the title. RC-Airsim meaning a simulation of radio controlled planes. And I didn’t get all that much. Now before I go on, I’m not trying to slam this, but it’s gotta be said. This is not a game, it’s a simulation. That was my first mistake, thinking of it like a game. So let me give you my thoughts briefly before I get into the details of the review. Unless you’re a radio-controlled plane enthusiast, you probably won’t care about this that much. Like I’m not.
