|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Cave Story #22 of 70|
May 3, 2012
Over the last few years, the term "Indie Game Developer" has become something of a buzzword. Basically, if you're a small, independent studio free from big-name publishers like EA and Activision, you're considered indie. But before 2010, "indie" developers implied something different. Most popular indie games before 2010 were either made with little to no funds, and made because of a love of old video games - rather than claiming to be a homage to "retro games" in general, it took inspir...

|Featured Review Braid is a LETDOWN for MalZenith|
April 5, 2012
Braid is known to be notorious for starting the trend of indie game developers, specifically those that focus on displaying to the world their "vision" or "message" while leaving gameplay to a couple of basic platforming controls with a twist that somehow ties into their vision. I'm not criticizing Braid necessarily - all in all it's a decent game - but indie gaming in general has become a dump for hipsters and artists to dump their ideas without needing to be published in a book, feature...

|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Super Meat Boy #44 of 70|
March 26, 2012
Meat Boy, prior to its foray to Steam (and XBLA), was a flash title that made its way around various flash game sites such as Newgrounds and Kongregate. All in all, the formula to the game hasn't changed much since then: extremely fast platforming that relies on twitch reflexes and (some) muscle memory to beat the harder levels. The graphics were updated a tad for its release as a standalone game, but that's about it as far as updating the game engine goes.
Not that it really needs an updat... Full Review
|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Shatter #57 of 70|
March 23, 2012
I assume that, at some point in your lives, you've played some version or another of Breakout. You know, the game where you bounce a ball against your paddle and attempt to break a bunch of bricks? One of the first things you'll think to yourself when you play this game is "This looks like Breakout with some physics added to it." And you know what? You're dead right. Strip away all of the graphics, the music, and the bosses and you're left with a typical Breakout game. It does, however, de... Full Review
|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Jamestown #27 of 70|
March 16, 2012
There's not much of a great market for shoot 'em up games anymore, compared to the 80's and the early 90's. Probably because a great deal of the kids who did play games like Space Invaders and Ikari Warriors started playing FPS or other shooter games, while the Japanese market trended towards bullet hell shooters such as Touhou, which were either fanmade or cheap, quickly made games released on XBLA and PSN. I'm not necessarily saying it's a bad thing, since there are great shmup games now... Full Review
|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Sequence #42 of 70|
March 12, 2012
As a whole, rhythm games have been pretty overdone ever since Guitar Hero was released. I mean, there's always going to be something inherently fun about matching moving icons to buttons on your controller to the tune of your favorite video game, but it's been so overdone now that really the only reason you would buy a rhythm game is for the songs themselves, regardless of what additional gimmicks you add to the gameplay. Sequence, however, is an exception. It offers a unique take on combat - ... Full Review
|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Katawa Shoujo #37 of 70|
March 7, 2012
Few imageboards have the extremely polarizing reputation that 4chan has amongst the common people. Already known to many as a site that endorses pedophilia (which is completely untrue), 4chan is generally frowned upon by most people who are at least familiar with the internet in some shape. Certainly, a dating simulator about crippled high school girls being released under the name of "Four Leaf Studios", whose creators all hailed from and drew inspiration from 4chan's /a/ (anime) board gives...

|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Trine 2 #20 of 70|
March 1, 2012
Frozenbyte Studios, an small game company that released Trine in 2009 and the little-known Shadowgrounds in 2005, banks on the success of Trine as an independent game by adding or changing very little for the sequel. Right off the bat, Ari Pulkkinen's fantastical soundtrack hits you as you start up the game, and as the game loads its first level you're treated to a narrator reading something that is akin to a children's tale. This is one of the main things Trine accomplishes well - taking the... Full Review
|Featured Review MalZenith ranked Magicka #21 of 70|
March 1, 2012
It is rare that an adventure game, specifically one about wizards, feels so rewarding and fun to play when you're just messing around with friends. Essentially, that's what Magicka is about. Sure, on the surface it's an adventure game with a plotline and a story and enemies you have to defeat using magical spells, but really, Magicka isn't about structured gameplay at all. It's ordered chaos. Get four people in a game, and there's going to be so much going on at once that it feels hectic w... Full Review
|Featured Review MalZenith ranked SpaceChem #10 of 70|
February 27, 2012
Perhaps you've heard of Zachtronics Industries' other title, a flash game called The Codex of Alchemical Engineering. In essence, the gameplay of that game is similar to this one - you have to make a certain amount of a chemical compound, and you're given only the base components, a couple of tools you can use to modify those components, and a very nice soundtrack to calm you as you struggle to figure out the answer.
This game, although it seems like Chemistry: The Video Game, has overall ... Full Review

|MalZenith ranked VVVVVV #7 of 70|
March 7, 2012
What's this? An Indie Game? What kind of genre? A PLATFORMER? WITH A TWIST? WITH "STYLISTIC" MINIMALIST GRAPHICS? HOW ORIGINAL!
If you're even a remotely enthusiastic supporter of indie games (and who wouldn't, given all of the really cheap indie game bundles on the internet nowadays?), this description pretty much describes a good half of all indie games on the market. So, what makes this game any different? To be honest, not too much. Sure, it has a pretty cool feature of having no jum... Full Review
