Deepak Fights Robots For Free!

By John Walker on August 20th, 2012.

Irresistible.

If you’re brilliant, you’ll remember Deepak Fights Robots, the frighteningly coloured platformer from the creator of RunMan, Tom Sennett. The sitar-funk-infused madness is reminiscent of Bubble Bobble, with the excellent inclusion of animal friends. And bestest of all, there’s now a slightly limited, ad-supported free web version, so you can play it now and there’s no excuse. (And the full, DRM-free version now costs only $5, half its original price.) Despite the extremely silly presentation, and shades-requiring graphics, there’s a good deal of depth to the game – it’s not just gimmicks but actually a worthy platformer too. It’s a huge pile of fun. Ensure you check out the video below.

IndieCade Awards And Alternatives

By Adam Smith on October 10th, 2011.

This is an actual photo from the festival - it was so much fun, I bet

I spent the weekend in a haunted watermill, which was pleasant and all, but I would rather have been at the Indiecade festival, battling inanely with invisible weaponry and rearranging boxes with strangers. The whole thing is done with now and that means it’s time for me to take a look at the winners, some of which I’ll cast no more than a sidelong glance at because they aren’t coming to PC. Last time I spoke about IndieCade I named my pick of the entrants as Proteus. Read on to see if the judges paid attention to my words and for a PC-centric awards ceremony of our very own.

Welcome To The Arthouse: IndieCade 2011

By Adam Smith on September 16th, 2011.

It's a logo. I've got nothing.

IndieCade kicks off on October 6th and that’s as good a reason for October the 6th as any I can think of. If you’re not aware of it, IndieCade is a festival, in its fifth year, that aims to celebrate all that is good in the world of indie games. Creators submit games and a roster of finalists is chosen for the event, at which they get lots of helpful exposure, such as these words that I’m writing at this very moment. Now that the 35 finalists have been announced, I’m going to take a look at the most interesting ones. By which I mean most of the ones that aren’t iOS games.

Fetch Your Shades: Deepak Fights Robots

By John Walker on May 31st, 2011.

This is not a representatively colourful scene.

In October 2009 I very rightly was enormously excited by the lunatic joy of RunMan. Its infectious brightness and unhinged glee were a big part of that. Developer Tom Sennett has picked up on the same vibe in his latest game, the brilliantly named Deepak Fights Robots (if you do nothing else, click on that link). It’s a puzzle platform game, heavily inspired by Bubble Bobble, but, well, brighter.
