Making fun of evil people like Hitler and the Nazi’s has become a staple of the game industry as of late, and this weird but cute little title about two boys who killed the tyrant and replace him is the latest artistic endeavor in that direction. So, how does it do?
Welcome Time Wasters! Looks like I just missed being able to wish you all happy Fourth of July, but what the heck, why not. Happy Fourth of July! Okay, I’ve got that out of my system. Now on to the Time Waster. This week my search for a Time Waster led me across the internet until I discovered a game titled StrikeForce Kitty. It’s a running game that involves very little input from the player (like most running games). The story of StrikeForce Kitty is that the King’s wife/daughter (I’m not quite sure which it is) is kidnapped by evil foxes … Continue reading StrikeForce Kitty Attacks!
Welcome Time Wasters! As I’m sure you’ve already guessed from the title, this week is a little bit different than a normal Time Waster. Instead of a traditional Time Waster, I’m checking out a game that is still in its alpha. This game is Vagante. Vagante is a rouge-like game that has players exploring endless caverns in search of loot. Being that the game is still in its alpha, there isn’t really any story. All that is known is that the player is dropped off in a mountain range and left to their devices. The gameplay in Vagante is really … Continue reading Alpha Preview: Vagante
Welcome Time Wasters! This week my search around the internet for a game to play led me to an interesting game called 2030 Leagues. 2030 Leagues is an exploration game all about exploring the depth of the ocean and collecting pieces of meteorite. There isn’t much more to the story of this game. The gameplay in 2030 Leagues is fairly straightforward. The player controls an underwater drone that has to travel around and pick up pieces of meteorite and bring them back to a ship sitting on the surface. Control of the drone’s movement is tied to the W,A,S,D keys … Continue reading A Journey to 2030 Leagues Under the Sea
Welcome Time Wasters! This week it was hard to get much of anything in terms of gaming done because I was too distracted by E3. I’m a Wii U owner and I’m definitely excited for almost everything Nintendo announced. Maybe this E3 will be the proof that some people needed to know that the Wii U isn’t going to fail. Either way, I’m getting off track. This week I played a small browser-based game titled A Kitty Dream. As the name implies, the game takes place inside the dream of a kitty that then goes to sleep in its own dream … Continue reading A Kitty Dreams of Wasting Time
Welcome Time Wasters! This week I decided to get my time waster fix from my internet browser. This led to me scouring the internet in search of something to play. What I found was Ram Time! Ram Time! is a side-scrolling game that has the player controlling three knights and a wizard as they carry a ram through castle, houses and anything else that gets in the way. The main point of the game is to destroy as much as possible to gain a high score without getting killed. Players can level up their ram team by smashing into houses … Continue reading Running Around with Ram Time!
Welcome Time Wasters! This week I’m looking at 8-Bit Boy, again. That’s right. For the second week in a row I’m looking back at a new version of a game I’ve already reviewed (Check that review out here.). I first reviewed 8-Bit Boy back in 2012, but the developer claims that the game is 75% different from what it was before. Let’s find out if this is true. In my original review of 8-Bit Boy, I cited the lengthy opening sequence for a simple story as a con to the game. This hasn’t changed in the new version of the … Continue reading 8-Bit Boy Revisited
Welcome Time Wasters! This week I sat down and played an upgraded version of a Time Waster that I’ve previously reviewed. This game is Croixleur Sigma. The original version of this game was just called Croixleur and it had a lot of problems. My review for it can be read here. Starting out, I want to talk about Croixleur Sigma’s story. The basic idea behind the game is that you play as two girls that are in an academy for sword sorceresses. The girls come from two different sororities in the school and are looking to beat each other out in an effort … Continue reading Croixleur Makes a Return with Sigma
Welcome Time Wasters! This week was fairly busy for me and I didn’t have a lot of time to dedicate to a Time Waste (I did make time to see the new Godzilla and I was disappointed by how little screen time the title creature got). Normally, I like to sit down and give a game my full attention, but I just couldn’t do that this time around. My solution to this was to find a game that I could play while doing other stuff, and I might have found the perfect game for that, sort of. That game is … Continue reading How to Learn to Fly Idle
This week our Time Waster checks out a game called Echoes of Eridu that is still in its alpha, and takes a lot from the Mega Man X series.
