FRAMED Review – Noir brought to IOS

I spent my afternoon perusing through the indie game section of the IOS store, expecting to see a billion stupid word puzzles and match three games, there was one thing that caught my eye, and that thing was a free game called “Framed”.

Gameplay

Framed is a puzzle game in which you are some sort of agent that is escaping from the police with some sort of briefcase. Each level is organized into little cartoon / comic style panels you rearrange them in order to avoid; or in some cases, take out the officers to escape. The premise is hard to convey, and you really have to play it to discover what it is all about. Different panels do different things when in a certain order, and all of them are set up so that they interact differently in a different order...

During this year, we saw a lot of indie games, and I am going to describe all of the ones shown off. These all look pretty cool, and most will be coming to PC, which is awesome.

Microsoft

Microsoft’s conference killed it on the Indie Game front, showing indie title after indie title, each brings fantastic, unique projects. Everything from 3d FPS’s to 2d exploration games was shown, and I can’t wait to see the finished product of each of these.

Lichdom Battlemage Review

I assume you have played an RPG; since this is a PC game you’ve probably played Skyrim right? Well if you have you probably at one point played spell sword where you attack primarily with some sort of melee weapon and then occasionally make use of some sort of spell to do some damage. Well, Lichdom Battlemage is that minus the sword and with double the destruction.

Lichdom Battlemage is tagged on steam as an RPG, and steam said it was similar to the likes of Skyrim. However, this to me was one simple thing… DOOM with spells. The game doesn’t make use of any currency, and not much of any open world, but it is very much run-and-gun with spells. The only things you collect, are little modifiers that you can use to craft and upgrade spells...

50 years – Review

50 years is a turn-based survival game similar to the likes of Sid Meyer’s Civilization. The game pits you as one of a few countries (which represent real life countries for some inexplicable reason), against invading hordes of soldiers, minotaurs, and… zombie chickens. As ridiculous as this game gets, it always stays true to the central medieval/fantasy theme the game maintains. I do also like how the game is very reminiscent of strategy board games both new and old.

The main gameplay is simple and easy to pick up. You manage a town similar to that of Survival Kingdom, a game that you will see covered this Tuesday on CFN. You construct buildings and hire citizens to gain more wood and gold, in order to amass a large army to fend off the aforementioned hordes of enemies...

Dungeon Souls Review

Dungeon Souls is one of many 2d roguelike top-down procedural indie dungeons crawlers, and that is part of the problem. On its own, this game is fine, but the market is very saturated and some games have set the bar high, and this game just isn’t hitting that bar.

My first problem is the controls, the game offers full gamepad support, but is basically useless as the aiming is awful, and the D-pad and joystick are equally clunky. The keyboard works fine, but some controls, such as switching to different abilities, don’t mesh well with the combat and require you to backtrack often, leading to unnecessary slow downs in the combat. You also cannot bind this to the scroll wheel and must use something on the keyboard...
