Beep, beep, beep. Backing up to deliver a new Greenlight voting queue.

It’s time for a stroll through a queue of Greenlight games looking for votes. This is an attempt to find the interesting games, and make life a little easier for those looking for such games to vote for. I have some ground rules for the games.

  • There must be a trailer.
  • Games cannot look like joke submission if they want to be included.
  • A game must look ready for Greenlight.
  • There must be an English translation in order for me to write about the game.
  • Lastly, games mentioned in previous posts that have been re-posted to Greenlight will not be included.

 

This listing is for the games that were put into my queue from August 11 to 13, 2015.

Now the Games:

 

Title: Scribbled Arena

Genre: Shooter, Arcade

Art Style: 2D Top Down Lined Paper Doodles

Synopsis: An arena multiplayer tank blasting game, with single player as well. Be the best of the best and upgrade your vehicle to your style of play.

Opinion: Honestly, I was not impressed by the trailer. I was expecting to be wowed and it whimpered. The visuals are awesome but nothing else sold me on the concept.

Trailer:

 

Title: Elansar

Genre: Adventure, Puzzle

Art Style: 2D First Person Screens

Synopsis: This is game where you are stuck on a small island and must solve puzzles in order to get off of it. This game does draw inspiration from the Myst series of games.

Opinion: I’m not impressed with the trailer and the Greenlight page is pretty light on details of the game.

Trailer:

 

Title: HeavenGuideMe

Genre: Horror

Art Style: 3D First Person

Synopsis: You play as Richard a man who is delving deeper and deeper into his own mind. He’s exploring his house with no way to defend himself against the horrors. This game draws inspiration for games like P.T., Resident Evil, and Amnesia. It is crowd funding on Kickstarter.

Opinion: It looks creepy and the developers say they aren’t going for jump scares which sounds good.

Trailer:

 

Title: The Sun Misses the Moon

Genre: Visual Novel

Art Style: 2D Hand Drawn set to Photographs

Synopsis: You play as Sol a college freshmen who is attending the same school as his friend. This game is a LGBT storyline. It is crowd funding on Kickstarter.

Opinion: I’m not a fan of the artwork, especially the way its placed against a photograph. Something about that makes it seem like a flash game on a website of free games.

Trailer:

 

Title: Mutule

Genre: Puzzle

Art Style: 3D Puzzle

Synopsis: You build and create puzzle levels to fit your desire.

Opinion: If you want to create insane puzzles this would be the game for you I suppose.

Trailer:

 

Title: Philia

Genre: Adventure, Puzzle

Art Style: 2D First Person Screens

Synopsis: This is the sequel to Elansar where you must journey into the subconsciousness of a loved one in order to save him.

Opinion: It seems like a solid title if you loved the Myst series of adventure games.

Trailer:

 

Title: Shadow Heroes: Vengeance in Flames

Genre: Strategy

Art Style: 3D Top Down

Synopsis: A new real time strategy game that wants to keep things simple and fun. With gameplay leveled at making sure that players of lesser abilities can competently duel it out with a veteran RTS player.

Opinion: My fear with this game is that they will simplify it too much to level the playing field and take out the challenge that RTS’s bring.

Trailer:

 

Title: Paper Cat

Genre: Platformer, Puzzle

Art Style: 2D Side Scroller

Synopsis: You play as a cat who likes to break things, lots of things and thankfully that’s the way you solve puzzles in this game.

Opinion: It looks like a cute and fun platformer with destruction of household objects and suits of armor.

Trailer:

 

Title: Saudade Sintetica

Genre: Platformer, Shooter, Arcade

Art Style: 2D Pixel Side Scroller

Synopsis: A retro inspired game with a 1980’s cyberpunk feel and music. The cyborgs are raising up against humanity and stealing exosuits to take down the city. You play as cyborg who stays with the humans and decides to fight the rebels.

Opinion: The trailer is a bit confusing and interesting at the same time. I really don’t know how to feel about this game.

Trailer:

 

Title: Possession 2

Genre: RPG

Art Style: 2D Pixel Top Down

Synopsis: A rogue-like game, just like the first, where you make your way through various levels by possessing your enemies and using them against one another.

Opinion: It looks okay.

Trailer:

 

Title: Repenthium

Genre: Adventure

Art Style: 3D First Person

Synopsis: You play as Andrew a man who has agreed to let all of his negative emotions be removed from his brain. Now you must figure out what’s going on, and if this really was an experiment to remove negative emotions. This game is crowd funding on Kickstarter.

Opinion: It looks pretty stellar and the story concept sounds awesome as well.

Trailer:

 

Title: Maze the Angels Walk Silently

Genre: Horror, Puzzle

Art Style: 3D World

Synopsis: In the 1930’s Aiden Ingram’s wife goes missing. He is on the constant search for her, but cannot get any leads. That is until he gets a letter leading him to Europe.

Opinion: The game sounds and looks cool. The potential problem lies in that the developers are drawing from so many inspirations that the game may turn into a mess of different ideas that don’t mesh well. Lots of inspiration is great, but they need to concentrate on a few good ideas while bringing in their own touches.

Trailer:

 

Title: Nuts!: The Battle of the Bulge

Genre: Strategy, Card Game

Art Style: 2D Screens

Synopsis: Based on the card game of the same name, you play as either the Germans or the Allied forces during the Battle of the Bulge. You get to make the decisions on how the battle will play out.

Opinion: You don’t see many historical card games based on battles, this one could be interesting.

Trailer:

 

Title: Krinkle Krusher

Genre: Arcade

Art Style: 3D World

Synopsis: You must defend your castle from the waves of enemies attacking. Not by using towers, but by casting elemental spells to put a stop them.

Opinion: Cute looking is perhaps the best way to describe this game.

Trailer:

 

Title: Ships and Scurvy

Genre: RPG, Strategy

Art Style: 2D Top Down and 2D Screens

Synopsis: You are the captain of a pirate ship. Do as you please plundering the seas and islands. Don’t except it to be easy to live the pirate life though.

Opinion: It isn’t for me.

Trailer:

 

Title: Break a Brick VR

Genre: Puzzle

Art Style: Virtual Reality Brick Puzzle

Synopsis: Bricks are falling down and you must collect them and get rid of them before they reach the bottom of the level.

Opinion: It’s an interesting idea taking what was a puzzle game in the flat 2D and then altering it to fit it to make it play in VR.

Trailer:

 

Title: Mammoth Gravity Battles

Genre: Shooter, Strategy, Simulation

Art Style: 3D and 2D Planetary Systems.

Synopsis: A turn based artillery game, where you play as a prehistoric mammoth. Using gravity and your skills you must eliminate the other mammoths around the planetary system.

Opinion: It looks crazy, seriously crazy and perhaps a bit fun.

Trailer:

 

Title: Rocket Fist

Genre: Arcade

Art Style: 3D Top Down

Synopsis: A multiplayer and single player arena battle. Launch your fists at the enemy to destroy them. Be careful, you only have one fist and must pick up fists that have been fired at you in order to keep going.

Opinion: It looks frantic and crazy, which is what you want out of an arena style shooter, brawler, whatever you want to call it.

Trailer:

 

Title: Mountain’s Heart

Genre: Fighting, Platformer

Art Style: 2D Side Scroller

Synopsis: Melding together Super Smash Brothers with Towerfall you get Mountain’s Heart. A game that emphasizes building levels and interesting fights.

Opinion: I’m torn on this game, there’s a lot of concept ideas here and not much solid to really go on. On the other hand, the concepts sound good enough.

Trailer:

 

Title: Reveal the Deep

Genre: Exploration, Platformer, Horror, Puzzle

Art Style: 2D Pixel Side Scroller

Synopsis: You are an explorer who is diving into the depths to explore a 19th century steamship. Your goal is to find out what happened to the vessel and the people aboard.

Opinion: It sounds good, the only complaint I have so far is that the screen seems really far away from the character.

Trailer:

 

Title: Cyrano and the Rusty Planet

Genre: Point and Click Adventure

Art Style: 3D Open World/Space

Synopsis: You play as Cyrano in a catoonish 17th century with flying spaceships, duels, and sorcery.

Opinion: I find it odd that in this game you can avoid the main story for as long as you want. The whole idea behind point and click adventures is to tell a story and not waste much time on frivolities. Perhaps that’s just me.

Trailer:

 

Title: Cold Dreams

Genre: Horror

Art Style: 3D First Person Open World

Synopsis: The main character has the same dream over and over. Until one day he finds he can’t wake up and is stuck. Will he survive this dark and cold dream?

Trailer:

Genre: Strategy, Simulation, Shooter

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Title: Alice’s Mom’s Rescue

Genre: Platformer

Art Style: 2D Pixel Side Scroller
