Take 1 part Indiana Jones, 1 part sprite based game, a dash of puzzle game, keep it all 2D, and add in 1000 lives to start with. Cool right. That is until you realize how ridiculously hard this game is. It is, like in the vein of ‘I Wanna Be the Guy’ a frustration game - in that is it is designed to be super frustrating. Everything can and will one hit kill you, and many of the traps can easily whittle down your starting 1000 lives.
Ever wanted to try a Paintball style game but never had the cash or time to do the real thing? Hate the sensation of getting hit in the face, going home with welts or having clothing stained with paint? Then try this new game called well Avatar Paintball. It's basically what it says on the box – a small contained battle field where you can run around shooting everything that moves! Better yet, for barely any Xbox points!
Have a love for Breakout, or Arkanoid style games? You know, those games where you have a paddle at the screen bottom, a ball and you have to bounce it from off your paddle breaking a set number of blocks per level? Well this game completely twists that into a whole new direction:
Instead of just hitting a wall you could be hitting chests for gems. Or a crate for keys. Or a door for entry. Or trying to defeat a boss blocking your way out. Wizorb is an intentionally retro styled game – from the music to the graphics to the old school Arkaniod feel, this indie game takes that and injects crack into the tried and true block breaking formula. It's like Legend of Zelda and Breakout had a love child and this was the glorious result.
