In Westerado: Double Barreled you’ll choose your side, be it with the native Americans or the oil tycoon, become a hero or a villain, and pull your gun out in mid-conversation for no other damn reason than you felt like it.
It’s difficult to not feel a little underwhelmed with Jazzpunk. After all its time in development Necrophone Games has somehow managed to deliver a game that is as much other people’s as it is their own.
In Soundodger+, you are assaulted with music. You play a circle contained within a larger circle which has more circles on the outside. The larger circle is the play area and the circles on the outside launch projectiles at you. Your goal is to dodge them for the duration of the song. Akin to Bullethell Shooters, projectiles will come at you in patterns which often need to be dodged in specific ways. If you do happen to be hit with a projectile, the song will fast-forward a little bit and give you a short period of invulnerability – this is one of the nicest touches in the game as it’s seamless and quick.
I have spent hours on a single level, repeating the mantra of “just one more time” in vain as I fail yet again to best my previous score.
Super House of Dead Ninjas does well in realising its strong points and what will keep people coming back to play again.
