Day 1199: Blocks Editor

Posted: 2014/02/21 in Indie Games

There are all sorts of block-building games. Some differentiate themselves by upping the enemies and destruction. Others give you more tools. “Blocks Editor” is different. It removes the fail state entirely (no creepers here). This is all about construction. And sharing those constructs. It comes with premade objects (Eiffel Tower anyone?) and you can access […]

I love big robots. I just bought the deluxe “Smartglass” version of mecha movie “Pacific Rim”. I was a fan of Robotech. I’ve read Battletech books, and watched that short-lived TV series. I played my share of MechAsaault, among other mech games (I even bought the original Steel Battalion on the OG Xbox, massive controller […]

Here’s a game that reminds me of Rockstar classic “Wild Metal”, which I played and loved on the Dreamcast (I think it may have also had a Windows PC release). Except now you can build the map, and destroy it out from under other people. The game has eight maps, and every player traverses them […]

I’ve been a fan of games where you whip through a course (in a side-view) all the way back to Pitstop II on Commodore 64 (and recently repopularised with games like Trials HD). I’m a big fan of “a great many of the games released by developer Maximinus Games”, of which this is another. I’m […]

I love these games from Maximinus. As opposed to previously reviewed “8 Ball Champion LIVE” and “9 Ball Champion LIVE” (which, oddly, and apparently in keeping with the actual games of pool represented, has fewer balls than “8 Ball” style), “27 Ball Funky Pool” takes a decidedly

Maximinus is another prolific developer; perhaps not quite as much variety as Milkstone, but what’s there is pretty darn good. Whether it’s “Red Tie Miner” (or it’s sequels “Red Tie Miner Zombie 2” and “Red Tie Miner Zombie 3”), “Dirt Track Racer”, “Missile Escape”, or “Cosmic Caverns”, there’s a lot to like about Maximinus. They’re […]

Considering the complaints about the lack of new content with annually released titles, I have absolutely no problem with an indie developer releasing a bunch of new hand-crafted levels every once in a while to do a full point sequel. Compared to buying (what is often criticised as) a minor upgrade to Madden each year, […]

If you liked “Red Tie Miner” (and I thought it was cool, it reminded me of elements that I loved in classic games as diverse as “H.E.R.O” and “Todd’s Adventures in Slime World”). “Red Tie Miner Zombie 2” is a straight up sequel that promises eight new huge levels, without an overhaul of the formula […]
