Nitrome’s Bomb Chicken is an eggsplosive platformer

I'm delighted watching the eggsplosive antics of Bomb Chicken [Greenlight page], a platformer starring a fat hen who lays bombs. The honking great hen can't jump but she can plop out bombeggs at an alarming pace, rising into the sky atop a stack of eggs. She can also kick 'em and, obvs, murder enemies with them. Put all that together and you have a puzzle-platformer…

Roguelike Puzzler From Creator Of Ending: Rust Bucket

Ending is a brilliant top-down puzzle game, made all the more impressive through the inclusion of a Gauntlet mode, which uses a few basic enemies and traps to create randomised levels that are somehow beautifully balanced. It's as much a masterpiece of design as my other favourite turn-based puzzler Hoplite, so news that Ending designer Aaron Steed will be working on Nitrome's upcoming Rust Bucket…

He Wears Rouge: Red Rogue Released

Hack, slash, splatter. Red Rogue first attracted my attention with its striking colour scheme, espied while playing a work-in-progress build entered into IGF 2012. Everything is teetering on the greyscale, except for blood and blood is as red as Rudolph's nose. Bump into anything and the dungeon is spattered with that lovely redness, even if your victim is the tiniest of spiders, innocently dangling from…

Snot Bad At All: Swindler

I have come to the conclusion that indie developers will never run out of cool new ways to meddle with platforming standards. The latest I've encountered is Swindler, from the pixel masters at Nitrome (check out why we rate them). Here you appear to play a blob of snot, who is able to let loose from his own ectoplasmic entity a long, stretchy green string,…

Go Bombing In Vain: Rainbogeddon

The latest release from Nitrome is one of those games that I wish I'd discovered later in the day, because I'm going to spend the remaining hours until I'm released from the shackles that bind me to the keyboard wishing I was playing it. It's called Rainbogeddon, which should really be enough to make you click here and play it. If you haven't, know that…

Not Ruble Trouble? Rubble Trouble Moscow

I do like destroying things. Buildings, hope, people's lives. So I'm immediately drawn to Nitrome's Rubble Trouble Moscow. You may remember the original Rubble Trouble in Feb last year, and apparently there was another one between then and now. This one is Russian themed, in so much as the characters are wearing hats, and the music is a bit Russian. The actual game is still…

Crimson Blaggard: Red Rogue

Wouldn't it be great if someone took part roguelike and part platformer and stuck them in a programming pot, producing some tasty gaming gumbo? Yes, I know about Spelunky. I was spelunkying before all the hip kids jumped on board. I'm talking about something else here. Red Rogue is a work in progress, an entry into the IGF 2012, which isn't really a roguelike platformer…

Alright, So Steamlands Looks Pretty Perfect

That impenetrable castle of good taste that is the Indiegames Blog has posted footage of a game called Steamlands, the current project of indie dev nitrome. Steamlands is a Captain Forever style action game wherein you're expected to build your vehicle as you go, but with the tower defence twist that the turrets on it are semi-automated. RPS has never done stickers for games, like…

New Folder: Faultline

Because today is Monday, one of the most overused days of the week, I am forced to prescribe web-based distraction game, for your health. Today it's Faultline, which is a cute little platformer in which you folder the level like the pages of a puzzlebook, and then unfold them again to continue your quest. Yes, it's a one-trick pony, but it's a pony that can…
