Speed Brawl (out now) puts a sporty speedrun spin on arcade fisticuffs

Punching stuff is fun, and Speed Brawl proves that punching everything fast while bouncing around the screen like a loon is even better. Released on Tuesday, Double Stallion's Speed Brawl is a platform beat 'em up set in colourful steampunk 1880s Britain after an alien invasion. The nation is rebuilding, and Speed Brawling (what it sounds like, really) is the new national sport. There's six…

Peter Molyneux’s The Trail strolls onto PC

Lionheaded bullfrog Peter Molyneux and his 22Cans studio today launched the PC version of their hike 'em up The Trail: Frontier Challenge [official site]. It's a game where players walk a path across a wild frontier, not to be confused with walking simulators where we get to have a lovely wander where we please. Along the way, folks get to collect stuff, take up a…

That hiking game from Peter Molyneux is coming to PC

What’s the auld rascal up to now? The Trail: Frontier Challenge [official site] is a multiplayer hiking game by 22Cans, the studio headed by Peter Molyneux and responsible for the troubled and still-in-early-access civilisation builder Godus. It's been out on iGizmos for some time, but now it’s coming to Steam, say the developers. I haven’t been keeping track of it but let’s look at this…

Feature: Monstrously compulsive fantasy-themed idle game

Realm Grinder is the new AdVenture Capitalist, and it’s destroying me

I like to think I am strong. I am not strong. I am weak. I have fallen for another idle, aka clicker game. I thought I had fallen through the black hole that was infinite money generation game AdVenture Capitalist and come out the other side wiser, armoured and immune against such manipulation of my lizard brain. Then, while researching games for this week's Unknown…

Die By The SWOOOORD Colon Lords Of The Sword

Here's a thought. If Kongregate doesn't add a mute button I'm going to find everyone involved and poke them in the eye. I'm reminded of this after playing SWOOOORD! Colon Lords Of The Sword for a bit. It's a dungeon-crawling action game, with randomly generated levels, and incredibly frequent permadeath.

To Be Different: Ludum Dare 24

Ludum Dare returns tomorrow but there's still time to influence the global gamejam, with voting on the theme ongoing at this very moment. There are some excellent choices, with a sprinkling of the lost and the lonely, including 'ruins', 'deep space', 'end of the world', 'trapped in another world', 'tunnels' and 'abandoned'. There's also '1000 kittens', which I definitely didn't just give a '+1' to.…

A Good Steer: Roadeo

The current Indiegames' browser game pick is a game with a near-genius idea and decent execution. Roadeo is a two-player racing game where one person drives the car, and the other plays as the road. Yep. The car loses by coming off the road, while the road loses by crashing into the other scenery in the map. It can be played competitive or co-operatively. It's…

Saving The Company: Profitable Platforming

Here's a micro-platformer for you to have a bit of fun with. Platforming isn't all rescuing princesses from castles and saving the world: Sometimes it's just about cold hard business. Saving the Company is a devious tale of corporate rebellion in the face of plummeting stock prices, and it sees you attempting to enact a company rescue & recovery strategy, through puzzle solving platforming. Sort…

Impressions: Wonderputt

Lots of people are talking about Wonderputt, even though it’s a Flash crazy golf game...wait, come back! It’s a Flash crazy golf game with alien abductions and rocket ships! I can’t help but notice that people are still walking away, pretending to have urgent appointments elsewhere, perhaps with more complex and worthy games. Well, forget those games for a minute. I made Wonderputt sound zany,…

Ding-Dong-Pong: Drop

OK, now that we've had our dose of morning bitterness and recrimination, let's turn our attentions to something altogether more cheery. Indie dev Quickfingerz' free browser game Drop combines ambient music-making with pong-style physics. Blessed with minimalist, icy neon prettiness that evokes an thoroughly abstracted Frozen Synapse, it's a puzzle game that's both relaxing and challenging. Unless you play the sandbox mode, in which case…

Pretty Two-Dimensional: Antimatiere

A dozen IM windows light up the Rossignol Research Crater with the same link. This link. It's a game called Antimatiere, hosted on Kongregate. It's a 3D puzzler that's all about the world becoming 2D. There's been some kind of accident and people and their things have become two-dimensional, and are now pasted on the walls, floors, and ceilings. Your task - as a person…

I Found Tealy & Orangey To Be Entertaining

Mr Tony Gowland pointed us toward his clever puzzle-platformer, Tealy & Orangey, and I am glad that he did. It sees you controlling two jumping balls at the same time - they both move left if you move left, both jump if you hit jump, and so on - to create some fiendish conundrums of spatial puzzling. Initially their obstacle courses are simply in parallel,…

Lambs To The Slaughter: Civilizations Wars

Two hours! Two! Hours! Gone, lost to idly clicking on the first link I saw on Kongregate. I should be asleep now, dreaming about [CENSORED] with [CENSORED], wearing a top hat made of [CENSORED]. Two hours! Sigh. Well, at least I enjoyed them. I'm sure someone will be able to tell me Civilizations Wars (ouch - that hurts to say/type) is exactly like some obscure…

Vox Populi Vox Dei (a werewolf thriller)

It's werewolf o'clock. Reader Ian Hetherington says he sent us a link to Kongregate game Vox Populi Vox Dei (a werewolf thriller) "because a combination of platforming and punching werewolves to death seems like RPS' sort of thing." Hrm. Well Ian, we can't say we disagree with you. The game itself is a mixture of subtle pixel art, punching werewolves to death, tricky timing, and…
