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.

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.

Okay… It’s been a long time coming, but there was one more “Banner Drawing” entrant called EUO and was created by a Mr. Max Breedon. Basically it’s “a retro multiplayer online RPG inspired by the early Ultimas, Nethack, Diablo, gold-box AD&D, Magic Candle, etc.” At least that’s what the website says. Since I haven’t really played those games much I’ll just have to take it’s word for it. For what knows better what a game is, than it’s website, unless maybe it’s creator. Here’s a cool video someone made showing some of the game :
Game is fairly fun, if you like multi-player online rpgs. You can see the old-school vibe coming from the video. Best of all it’s free. There are some things you can buy in the real world that give you some help in the game world. Buying stuff in the real world for the game does not give you more of an advantage over free players, but it does help you out when you play. You aren’t required to buy anything to play the game though, because it’s free. It’s just good manners to help indies when you enjoy their game. More after the break.
