Syntax Error you're a machine for trying out all those games!
Thanks! You single-handedly inspired me to continue. Or maybe not. You'll never know. What you will know is that all of these titles are also under a buck each making them the perfect deal after you've spent all your money on cheap beer and M-80s.
Sokoban Land DX: When this booted up, I saw that it was by the same studio that made WILOO so I was pretty excited. Unfortunately, this box pushin' game was pretty dull, both in content and the plodding pace with which the characters move. Push boxes onto switches, open door, rinse and repeat. Ironically, given the slow movement speed, the game still managed to over-push boxes on a fairly regular basis leaving me to restart levels (there's a "take back" move but it's limited). There's a co-op mode as well and the game is 99¢ alone or $1.74 bundled with WILOO but I can't recommend.
Realm of the Ghost King: A quick turn-based strategy game, you work your ghost (or whatever) through each level, step by step, while being harassed by various enemies each with their own gimmick. Bats move diagonally across the grid, mushrooms teleport when hit, slimes kill you if you attack them, etc. Use a combination of moves, special attacks and bombs to make it to the portal but you'll also want to pick up loot and hit the shop along the way. Dying starts you over, rogue-like style. It was okay but I don't see myself going back to it. You can always pay the 99¢ and see for yourself.
Factory Hiro: You are Hiro, a 42 year old factory drone berated by your boss and living only to work. But tonight we riot! Wait, no.. we decide to get back at him by, uh, working really hard? A frantic-paced factory game where you quickly work the switches on conveyor belts to ensure that the right products are manufactured correctly and loaded onto the trucks before time runs out. Attractive graphics and art style and the game play seems good if you're into this sort of thing. Pull 74¢ out of your slave wages and it can be yours.
Spell Casting: Meowgically Enhanced Edition: Ugh, that name. Ok, you're a cat-person. You want to be a wizard. You're in a correspondence course for wizarding. That's the premise for using your mouse ("wand") to quickly trace shapes and get graded based on speed and accuracy. Afterwards, you'll do it again without the helpful drawings on your practice sheet. Sort of amusing and challenging and the book pages are covered with pop culture and geek humor jokes if that feels value added. 49¢ is cheaper than a Gun Repair course (that's a joke for the older ones of you).
Resistance is Fruitile: A twin-stick shooter that has you and a potential partner fighting fruit-people as you try to get the chocolate back for your wedding. Ok, sure. It's okay. No great but it does what it's supposed to do. But even at 50¢, I'd tell someone to spend another seventeen cents on Nation Red or some other superior game in the same genre. Erm, the twin-stick genre, not the fruit-people genre.
Cotrio: Minimalist math puzzler. Drop numbers onto nodes so two points of a triangle equal the third, placing two identical numbers next to one another loses. Typical pleasant graphics and soothing music but it felt too much like homework for me. The more numerically minded among you might find this more worth your 67¢ investment.
Drift King 2D: We started today with a racing game and we'll end it with a racing game. Unfortunately, not a very good one. The idea seemed fun enough: a top down racer where you drift everywhere. The execution looks cheap, has clunky menus and controls and handles poorly. Not "lol I'm drifting all over" poorly but just like programmed poorly. Priced at 74¢ but was even cheaper than that earlier as an apology for the lack of development so don't expect this to get much better.
