Mayhem Intergalactic – or – Stuff blows up in space!

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Our next banner drawing entrant is Inventive Dingo with Mayhem Intergalactic, a turn-based space-themed strategy game.  Your goal is to conquer all the planets before your enemies do by sending ships to attack other planets.  Firstly I’d like to say this is pretty fun, like the other similar planet-conquering indie strategy games out there.  It’s not really hard to learn as you’re basically pointing and clicking to send ships to your own or enemy planets.  You can also upgrade your planets to produce more ships.  If you want to know more, please continue reading.


Zatikon – Jazz it up with Zatikon!

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Apr30 Or is that Jazz it up with Zatarain’s?  We’re not talking about rice.  We’re talking about the new game Zatikon from Chronic Logic.  Chronic Logic is the company that made Gish, or at least I think so.  Actually when you look at their website they have a lot of games, more than most companies that have been in the business for as long as they have.  Apparently according to Wikipedia they also publish (or is that distribute) indie games from other authors.  It’s cool though, I’m fairly certain Zatikon is a Chronic Logic Original.  They’re so awesome they’ve got their own MobyGames entry!  Or at least they must be awesome, because not everyone has an entry on MobyGames ;-)  And why the heck am I gushing, I don’t even really know the company.  I played the Gish demo like once (before I was reviewing games) and found it too odd for my tastes.  Okay okay, so what is Zatikon?  It’s some sort of strategy game, like chess (but not really like chess) or Stratego (okay maybe more like that, umm I don’t know).  Let’s find out about this interesting game.
