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.


Bauble Play – Match-3 with an eye-patch!

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

(To the tune of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer) Well you know Zombies, and Vampires, and Werewolves, and Ninjas, Skeletons, Robots, Samurai, and Vikings, but do you recall, the most famous scoundrels of all… PIRATES!  ARRRRGH!  Everyone is into pirates nowadays.  Seriously.  Pirates of the Caribbean, Lego Pirate sets, Puzzle Pirates (Okay I haven’t reviewed it, I haven’t even played it), even real pirates in the news.  Everyone is mad, simply MAD about pirates!  So it’s with great pleasure I present to you a match-3 type game with a piratey theme.  Okay it’s one of those ones where you just click and remove.  Technically this could be considered a preview because it’s in beta.  It’s done in XNA, so I assume eventually it will get to the XBOX.  Anyways, the game is ok.  Not great, nothing to really keep me wanting to play.  If you want to know more please continue to read.  How about a video of the gameplay:


(xblig) Ninja Guardian sounds like an oxymoron —

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Okay well today’s review is on a game called Ninja Guardian by Phoenix Game Studios.  Attack an evil samurai warlord named… you guessed it “Evil Samurai Warlord”.  Anyways the object is for you to stop him by jumping on platforms and fighting like giant wasps and stuff.  I kid you not!  The unique thing about it is simply that you move from platform to platform.  To attack it’s the A button.  If you want to jump in mid-air it’s the right trigger.  You can also trigger temporary invincibility by the left trigger.  That’s pretty much it.  It makes it rather unique because the goal is simply to get to the top of the level.  The graphics are cute and resemble some sort of Asian paper artwork, although it reminds me of Chinese art rather than Japanese, but I suppose Japanese must have had their art as well so I guess it doesn’t really matter.  In any case I think it’s worth a play just because it’s kind of unique (and frustrating).  In any case if you want to go into why I think it’s worth a play read on.
