    Remembering the love…

    As in the last compo, everyday I’m writing a post with impressions of the games that attracted me most among those I played that day. With more than 1400 games available, I hope that these posts can call to attention some gems that may go unnoticed otherwise :-). If you want to see my previous posts, just check my journal for the “love” series.

    So, among the games I played today, I found many “cute” ones to share:

    Tiny Contamination — A “dodge the enemies” kind of game where your cute amoeba has to take the right cells and flee from the wrong one. I really like that the number of lives the player has is integrated into the sprite. A strange bug might make you die suddenly.

    A bathtub story — You are a cute monster inside a tiny bathtub, fighting against all the other bathtub toys. Very cute game, until you realize that EVERYTHING in that damn bathtub is deadly, and trying to kill your guts!

    Pixel’s World — your first impression might be “ugh these sprites”. Then you see everything that is going on in the background, and realize the look is quite intentional, and work very well that way. A very fun platformer.

    Toad Warrior — Hmmmm, a naked dude riding a giant frog may not be everyone’s definition of cute. Hell, it might be no one’s definition of cute! But the art in this game is pretty neat, and the dude looks so happy in his toad! :-P The game is a platformer puzzle with a unique control. A bit rough in the game play, but rather fun.

    Gravity Force 3 — Well, this game has nothing of cute in it. But is one of those crazily fun games that you keep playing and playing just because they’re so addictive, even if there are other games to rate :-)

    See you again soon!

      Your suggestions are quite welcome and helpful! I’m finding myself stumbled by the sheer amount of games and the little time I have to check all of them out!!!

      I would also like if you could take a look at my game and get some feedback from you :)
