Pizza Quest

Carmel Games never failed to give us some entertaining point and click adventure game and they never failed in transforming a simple activity to a bigger adventure. In Pizza Quest, you will play the role of the palace’ newly assigned chef and your duty is to serve the queen. In your first day of work, the queen is seemingly craving for Pizza but you realized that you have no materials and ingredients to prepare one.

The game will welcome you with a brief cinematic introduction telling a short story about the main character and how he ended up being the queen’s chef. Much like the rest of the point and click games, the only way to interact with the game is through mouse clicks. Simply hover the mouse over the objects to identify which is interactive and which is not. The cursor will change to a moving cog icon if the object is something you can collect or examine. In the entire course of the game, the player will be asked to collect various objects, gather clues and solve numerous puzzle along the way. See, who would have thought that gathering simple ingredients for pizza will end up in such a thrilling quest?

The puzzles are quite predictable and easy to solve though but despite of the game’s apparent simplicity, the player is still encouraged to observe very keenly and pay attention to every details to prevent overlooking the clues, otherwise, you might end up going to same places over and over again.

Appearance wise, Pizza Quest is presented in a neat and visually stunning environment and is perfectly matched with cool and funny animation with amazing voice overs ( a feature used in most Carmel Games). This may not have a replay value (unless they will soon put timers on it and an interactive leaderboard) but the game is generally fun and entertaining to play with! Absolutely worth playing.

Deeeep.io

We have seen so much games from io and they never failed to amuse us with their games despite the fact that they all follow the same mechanics and gameplay. Deeeep.io will take us to another adventure. This time, as what the title of the game suggests, we will embark ourselves in a deep underwater journey where you play the role of a shifting animal. Much like most of the io games, your main objective here is to survive as long as you possibly can. You have to control your chosen animal and navigate through a wide stage and eat as many food as you can in order to gain a new level and evolve to a bigger form. This , however, will not be that easy as you are about to deal with an overwhelming amount of players on stage who can devour you in an instant! If you think you can survive this challenge, then feel free to play Deeeep.io and see how far you can go!

Generally, Deeeep.io is another survival of the fittest game. It follows the same mechanics with other well established games like slither.io, Agar.io and more but what really makes this game distinctive and unique above the rest? Appearance wise, the game is presented in a very simple atmosphere. It was not adorned with any visually stunning and intricately designed details yet still neat and colorful enough to be enjoyed. Despite of the game’s apparent simplicity, the gameplay is generally tricky and fun. You can move around the multidirectional stage by hovering the cursor of your mouse. Collect as many foods (colored circles) in order to gain level. The gauge meter is located below the screen to identify how much food you still need to intake before evolving to another character or animal. The interesting part of the game is the fact that each animal possesses different abilities. If you turned into an octopus for an instance, you will have the ability to poison every enemy that touches you.

Even though you got unique skills, you still have to be wary of the other enemies around you especially the large ones. Interestingly, there are special areas in this game that you can take advantage with. The sea weeds for an instance can be a hiding spot. Going under the sea weeds will put you in a stealth mode and enemies cannot harm or detect you while hiding. Eating foods will help you earn points but devouring other enemies will give you greater points and will speed up the process of evolving. Another great features of this game is the leaderboard system which displays all the top players. The game also has different servers to choose from. The score board and the game’s unpredictability provide the game an impressive replay value! Overall, Deeeep.io is another entertaining io game that you can confidently list on top of your list!

Tomb of the Glitch King

In every video game, there is one thing that we do not really want to encounter ~ the glitches! In this game, however, glitches were intentionally inputted and you must deal with them and defeat its source. Tomb of the Glitch King is a fun yet surprisingly challenging physics based puzzle game. Your main objective is to play the role of a warrior who fearlessly enter the tomb of the so-called Glitch King. This is not an easy task though because the tomb is actually filled with an overwhelming amount of traps made by the glitch king himself.

As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the main stage. Take note that you are only dealing with one room for the entire game but the glitches will change the passable path every level and you just have to find your way out.

Broken Breakout

The game “Break Out” is probably one of the classic games that never failed to amuse every kid of every generation. The gameplay is simple yet surprisingly tricky and challenging. It has been adapted and twisted many times but the addictive quality of this game surprisingly remained. Broken Breakout might be one of the thousand games that are merely inspired from the classic Breakout but this one features a very interesting twist. Broken Breakout by Tim Garbos will take you to a series of challenging levels with varying range of difficulties. It takes you to a classic Breakout interface with the same old objective and that is to eliminate all the bricks on stage. However, this game has been twisted because instead of moving the “paddle” to catch the bouncing ball, you are moving and shaking the entire stage to manipulate the ball’s movement.

It is not your typical Breakout game indeed but it is absolutely ten times challenging and fun to play with. As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted to a single block. Normally for a Breakout, the game will begin by moving the paddle. The paddle can only be moved to left and right but it should be done carefully as you need to catch the bouncing ball. Missing it would only end the game and the player needs to start the level back from the very beginning. In Broken Breakout, you are not dealing with a moving paddle. It is aptly named “Broken” because they made it look like the game is not working properly and instead of moving the paddle, the player is encouraged to shake the stage. This will allow you to move the ball inside and to break the bricks. This however, will not just end there because the game will become more challenging as you progress.

The rate of difficulty will drastically increase as you progress in this game. You will soon encounter “Red Blocks” which should never be touched by you ball, otherwise, the game will come to a quick end and you have no other option but to start the same level back from the very beginning until you managed to make it through. The game is presented in a very simple and retro-inspired interface but despite of its overall simplicity, the game is surprisingly fun and addictive. It could have been more engaging if they added a score chart and the game has a huge potential of becoming and addictive game app for your smartphone. Simple, fun yet frustratingly challenging! I guess that’s how you can perfectly describe this game and I just can’t wait to see more of its future developments! Enjoy!

Gun Mayhem 2

Prepare yourself and get your guns ready as Gun Mayhem is back for another thrilling and much bigger shooting adventure! Kevin Gu has created a sequel to his successful platformer shooting game but this time with a vast of wonderful and interesting improvements that makes Gun Mayhem 2 even more fun and addictive. In Gun Mayhem 2 you have one simple mission and that is to be the best gunman of them all and you can do so by wielding the best weapon and eliminate all your enemies in the field whether they are computer generated or a real human player. The sequel interestingly offers wider options, bigger customization , well improved graphics and a bunch of other additional game campaigns to choose from. If you think you have what it takes to win over this Gun Mayhem, then feel free to explore this game and see how far your shooting skills can take you.

As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the main menu which allows you to select your preferred game campaign. Unlike its predecessor (The Gun Mayhem), you now have three game modes to choose from including the game’s Main Campaign, The Custom Game and the newly added “Challenges”. Main Campaign prompts you to a level by level mission. Each mission has different objectives and rate of difficulty but it only has one basic rule and that is to win over your opponents. Each mission can be a cooperative battle and the second Human player has the option to enter the battlefield prior to each level. Custom Game campaign on the other hand allows the player to set his preferred type of battle. It includes modes like “Last Man Standing”, “Last Team Standing (cooperative)”, Survival, 1Hit 1 Kill, Gun Game, Gun Game Reversed and Jetpacks. The player also has the ability to pick his desired battle stage , amount of lives and the frequency of drops.

Challenges, on the other hand, features a set of missions with different objectives but have one goal and that is to get the highest rating by completing each challenge as fast as you can. It is also interesting to note that you can customize your character based on your very own preferences. Unlike the first game, you can now change the avatar’s face and other physical attributes. Considering that the game can be played by two players and the result can always vary, Gun Mayhem 2 has a decent amount of replay value. Appearance wise, the game is presented in a much more colorful interface and dynamically changing background which is a big leap from its predecessor. This will not be named as Gun Mayhem without the weapons and it is actually one of the game’s strongest points. It features a very overwhelming amount of weapons to unlock and they can all be viewed and tested on your Weapon Library. Overall, Gun Mayhem 2 is truly a fun and engaging shooter game that is absolutely worth playing! Good luck and have fun!

Party At The Knightclub

Living under the bridge for a long time is probably one of the most boring lifestyle ever and when this certain creature named Horace realized that maybe he needs to step out of his comfort zone and experience the kind of life he never had. He found out some monsters and aliens heading to a “knightclub” and seemingly enjoying it. Horace decided to do the same only to find out that a weak monster like him is not allowed to enter the club. Interestingly, he has a special ability to shift his form to something else. In order to do so, he must approach a certain monster and devour them in order to adapt their form. You must use this ability as your advantage to enter different kind of places. However, this simple task of entering the knightclub will end up into a bigger adventure as your original body was taken into the dungeon and now, you must find a way to retrieve it!

Party At the Knightclub is a very special game in so many ways. It is created by Sparklin Lab as part of their entry to the recently concluded Ludum Dare challenge. It is an adventure game presented in a decent pseudo 3D environment. It basically follows a story of a monster who has the ability to shapeshift. He unfortunately lost his real body and now he went to another adventure to retrieve it. The game is very interactive. You can move the character using the arrow keys and interact with other monsters and aliens using the X key. All monsters are very interactive and you can actually use your skills in every single one of them. You can shapeshift by approaching your desired monster and by pressing C. Take note that the game doesn’t involve any battle or some sort. It’s about tricking other monsters through your different forms .

Interaction is very important in this game as it is your tool to identify which character you should transform into. Entering the club for an instance requires a monster type that will only pass the standard of the guard. Appearance wise, Party at the Knightclub is presented in a very neat atmosphere and is complimented with catchy tune that makes this game a lot more enjoying. Unfortunately, the only down side of this game is the fact that it was not completely finished. The game will only end as soon as you spotted your real body underneath the dungeon but you cannot do anything about it. The game generally has a huge potential and I am eager to see what else it has to offer in its possible future developments! Overall, this game is absolutely worth playing! Have fun!

Reform

If a certain game is created within a limited amount of time, it is understandable that the game is not completely developed and there are possibly many holes in its plot. Reform is a simple yet surprisingly tricky flash game created by EvanEGibbs as part of his entry in Ludum Dare 35. Considering that this is Ludum Dare entry, the developer was only given a short amount of time to build such game and to match it up with the given theme. As far as I can remember, the 35th Ludum Dare Challenge is about Shape-shifting and this is exactly what to expect from this very interesting flash game. In Reform, you will play a role of a strange-looking creature in a strange-looking land. You have the ability to shift from one form to another but your objective is initially confusing. You will pass through a series of challenges and you just have to figure out how to escape the obstacles in order to progress to the next scene.

As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the first scene. You are one little creature who decided to explore your world until you find yourself into an epic adventure. The mechanics of the game are very simple and easily manageable. You can move around the side scrolling screen using the left and right arrow keys. Interestingly, you will encounter various creatures along the way but I would like to note that these creatures are not your enemies. In fact, they will allow you to adapt new skills and to transform yourself into their form. You can transform or shift from one form to another using the number keys. In the entire course of the bgame, you will be given the ability to transform into three different creatures. Each form has special and unique ability that you can use in special situations.

The first form for an instance is capable of pushing blocks while the second form allows you to become more agile and will let you jump higher. The third and last form will give you the ability to throw a force wave above you. It is also interesting to note that this platformer game doesn’t involve any enemies or anything that will affect your character’s progress. All you will encounter are blocks and various mechanisms that you need to overcome. However, Reform is not just limited to solving puzzles, it surprisingly follow a compelling and seemingly mysterious plot. You will soon encounter a certain creature that will have a special role in the story. In fact, the game features two alternate endings and it will be based on your selected action. Overall, Reform is an entertaining platformer game with engaging enigmatic theme and decent amount of challenge. The game has many potential in it and I just can’t wait to see more of its future development.
