Premature Evaluation: Cryptark

Each week Marsh Davies attempts to retrieve some sort of thematically appropriate salvage metaphor from the Early Access game he’s been playing - which is perhaps too easy when the theme of that game IS salvage. But Cryptark is no stricken husk: it’s already proving to be a truly excellent roguelike shmup. In it, you’re dispatched to disable the security systems of derelict alien space-hulks…

Cryptark Is A Roguelike Shooter From Apotheon’s Devs

I like procedurally generated spaces not because I enjoy muddled corridors, but because it pushes designers to give their locations structure in other ways. In the case of roguelike shooter Cryptark [official site], that's filling its hulking spaceships with systems such as shield generators, repair systems, signal jammers, drone factories, sentry controllers and more. You have to decide how to deal with each one of…

Wot I Think: Apotheon

Apotheon [official site] is an attractive but shallow game whose more interesting ideas are marred by an unwieldy control system. You play as Nikandreos, a man tasked with taking back power from the gods after Zeus decides to forsake mankind. You'll achieve that by visiting the domains of key individual gods from the Greek pantheon and besting them in order to collect their powers as…

Mythmas Time: Apotheon Trailer

Apotheon is one of the more interesting games on the horizon. It's a stunningly pretty action RPG set in ancient Greece, where you'll wander an open-world Mount Olympus as you attempt to overthrow Hera. It's from Alien Trap Games, who made the splendid Capsized, and they've just announced that if you pre-order Apotheon you'll get Capsized for free.

Hera Worship: Apotheon Is The Prettiest Of Pretties

Alientrap's new platform game, Apotheon, is pretty. A 2D platform action-RPG set in Greek mythology, where you'll fight your way to the top of Mount Olympus. It's the age old tale of a champion fighting for humanity against the wife and usurper of Zeus, Hera. We've all been there, battling Greek gods, stealing their powers, controlling the elements. I was doing just so last night,…

Capsized Looks Swell, Exciting, Difficult

Capsized is yet another 2011 release that I am sure will entertain anybody who is over-bored (overboard) (DO YOU SEE). Developers Alientrap have released a brand new trailer for their indie platformer featuring platforming, puzzling, battling and death-defying leaps, often all at the same time. Most peculiar! You'll see what I mean when you watch it below. Last year when Kieron posted the first Capsized…

Exile On Moon Street: Capsized

Sipping morning tea, I find myself looking at the newly announced game due in 2010 (via Steam) from Alientrap Software, who you may know as the developer of the free open-source shooter Nexuiz. In first few seconds I'm thinking "Metroid" or "Turrican", and kinda shrugging. A few later, I think "Exile". And then I notice its name. It's totally someone trying to do a modern…
