Unlike other great puzzle games like Portal or Braid, many of the levels in Fez are unpredictable. You can't just look at the map and predict exactly what to do. You have to guess and check, and not all of the results are intuitive. While guess-and-check puzzles works well for games like The Witness, it's really tedious in a game like Fez. See More
The world is an intertwined maze that rely on specific portals to travel between. Since the entire game revolves around locating cubes -- a minimum of 32 cubes are required to reach the game's ending (64 cubes and "anti-cubes" exist in total). A considerable amount of backtracking is needed to locate the needed cubes; which are intentionally difficult to find and acquire. See More
The main mechanic in the game is that the player can switch the gravity in any level allowing the character to flip from the bottom of the screen to the top. This is used in an ingenious way in order to solve puzzles and avoid hazards throughout each level. See More
VVVVVV is a tough game, one that will cause frustration quite easily. Luckily there are unlimited lives in the game, so areas can be played over and over again with no consequences. There are also easy controls so the game is easy to grasp, just difficult to always execute. See More
VVVVVV is very reminiscent of a game one would find for the Atari or Commodore 64 in that the graphics are simple, but the gameplay is anything but as it plays like nothing one would have found back then. It is fast paced and very precise, also extremely tough. See More
What really drives the well crafted story home is the wonderful narration done by British filmmaker, comedian, writer, actor, and presenter of radio and television, Danny Wallace. Not many indie small budget games receive the polish this game has in their voice acting, which really adds to the experience when playing the game. See More
I played through Flat Heroes with my family. It was one of the few games that caught everyone wanting to play just one more level or to keep trying that one level until we could beat it. The co-op is seamless and allowed different controllers with no special setup. The game starts fast and the levels progress with little downtime between them. See More
Matthew Schrenk's Experience
Even if you've beaten the game, there is still an exciting reason to keep coming back for more. Every (real time) day, the game gives you a randomized set of gear and ingredients, and sends you into the kitchen for a cook-off. Since this daily challenge is completely random, it provides a fun challenge by requiring you to think and react quickly. While there is no multiplayer mode, it is still a fun way to put your skills to the test and race your friends to the highest score on the leaderboard. See More
You choose your cooking equipment, such as pans, prior to each cook-off. However, until the cook-off actually begins, you aren't given any information on each judge's culinary preferences. Some judges may prefer their food cooked in a fire or earth pan, whereas you brought a water pan. Due to this, having to replay cook-offs happens often. See More
The game has a very steady difficulty ramp, meaning you'll never be overly frustrated or bogged down by too many mechanics at once. At the start, it's your typical match three game where you'll be preparing simple dishes. It's easy to learn the basics. As you progress, modifiers are added such as tighter time limits and being required to cook multiple dishes. Some ingredients are also poisonous, requiring you to carefully avoid the poison gems so you don't spoil the food. The end result is a difficulty level that feels natural since the game becomes gradually harder as you go. See More
Battle Chef Brigade combines action gaming and puzzles in an enjoyable way. It makes cooking up your perfect dish a little more interactive than just slapping together ingredients, as you'll be actively hunting and gathering them all yourself. At the beginning of each timed cooking challenge, the featured ingredient and the judges' culinary preferences are announced. It will be different every match, meaning you'll have to stay on your toes. From the kitchen, you step out into the world to hunt animals for their meat and gather ingredients in an action platforming setup. At first you'll just be using your dagger, but as the game progresses you'll unlock more moves, magic spells, and even a few combos to beef up the action. When all your ingredients are collected, you'll rush back into the kitchen and mix and match everything you've gathered in a frantic match 3 puzzle setup to prepare your ultimate dish. See More
