Nov09 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.


Crush the Castle – A catapult you say? Nay, A trebuchet!

May08The 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.


Bumps – Today’s forecast, catchy with a chance of BUMPS

May07 What is the definition of bump?  Well I asked Google to define it for me.  A note here though, I don’t know where Google comes up with it’s definitions, I assume it’s from various dictionary sources.  Or I could have just gone to a dictionary.  However Google is easier because all I have to do is type define:bump in a search and it pulls it up.  So Google defines the word bump as a) knock against with force or violence, b) find: come upon, as if by accident, c) dance with the pelvis thrust forward, d) a lump on the body caused by a blow, e) to demote (actually I’ve never heard it used in this context, except if someone said bump down, technically speaking bump is upward or outward so I don’t think demote really holds, I guess “you’ve been bumped” would constitute a demotion, but I don’t know, generally speaking we usually like to say the direction of the bump, ie bumped down, bumped up), f) bulge: something that bulges out or is protuberant or projects from it’s surroundings, g) dislodge: remove or force froma  position of dwelling previously occupied, h) blow: an impact (as from a collision).  These are your main bump dictionary definitions.  Well now that I’ve obviously used some space as filler, what does that have to do with today’s game?  Well if you haven’t guessed already, the game is called “Bumps” by Utopian Games.
