Magicka 2 Hands On: How To Refine Slapstick Co-Op

By Paul Dean on December 17th, 2014.

I have accidentally killed Peter Cornelius. I have accidentally killed him several times and this has included (but is not limited to) the time that I launched a rock at his head, the time that I electrocuted him and the time that I pushed him off a cliff.

Walkie Tonky

By Jim Rossignol on January 22nd, 2009.


Indiegames linked us to a lovely little prototype demo from Pieces Interactive. It’s a side-scrolling smash ‘em up called Walkie Tonky. In it you play an alien robot with telescopic legs, who, having been dropped off on the mothership, is off on a rampage. Kick and flail arms to do damage, or simply extend legs to step your way over trouble. I love the silhouette/shadow-puppet visuals on this one. There’s a direct link to the 20mb download here.
