GET IN SHAPE

There are some games out there that wants you to just have fun, while there are some games that’ll test your skill, then there’s Get in Shape. This game will try to give you fun, but it’s mostly going to test your eye-hand coordination skill and a lot (a whole LOT) of your patience.

Get in Shape is a game that challenges you to multitask. This game will ask you to juggle a few games simultaneously while making sure that you don’t die in all of them. The game will start you off easy with just one game showing you a simple animation, as well as a button. You’ll need to press the button specified on each game to interact with that game. The interaction is simple, like the block your controlling will jump at the press of a button, or a holding the button makes you move or dodge. There’s a lot that can be done with a single button press, but that’s not the main focus of this game. As you get used to the first game you’re given, you’ll be introduced to another one suddenly, so make sure to be prepared for it. Once the first game is given to you, you’ll have 30 seconds to try and survive before another one is introduced. Your main goal is to maintain and survive through all the games (this will depend on the difficulty you select at the start of the game). For example, one difficulty will need you to survive 5 games for 30 seconds to win. As long as you haven’t reached that goal, the game will keep going unless you don’t survive on the last game remaining.

Get in Shape is a very hard game, and finishing even just the normal difficulty took us a little while to do, but it’s super fun for those looking for a challenge. If you’d like to play a game where your skills are put to the test, then you’ve come to the right place.

ATV TRIALS TEMPLE

ATVs are super fun! You can ride them anywhere; deserts, beaches, mountains, dirt roads. Like, literally anywhere! In this new instalment of the ATV Trials series, explore a temple – lost and forgotten in time. Take an adventure and just get lost in this game’s awesome setting.

ATV Trials Temple is a time trial game that lets you use an All-terrain Vehicle to go through a number of temple based levels. Of course, you’ll have to go through them in the quickest way possible since this is a time trial. The game looks gorgeous using the Unity engine for its graphics and its physics mechanics are top notch. It’s a very simple game really since you don’t have to drive through a 3D environment – you’ll be riding in a plain 2D road, which means all you’ll be doing is either moving forward or backward. You’ll do this by pressing W key or the up arrow key to accelerate (holding it down to speed up) and pressing the S key or the down arrow key to step on the brakes. The A and D or left and right arrow keys will tilt your vehicle left or right so you can do stunts and also make sure you land in a good enough position so you don’t topple over. You’ll keep doing this until you finish all the levels available in the game. Each level has a par time that you can try to beat for a challenge, which is easily doable once you get the hang of the game.

It’s not always that you’ll get to play a cool game with ATVs or temples, so it’s even more rare to play a game with both! Grab the chance and lose yourself in this very beautiful game, both visual and sound. If you’re looking to play a game you can relax with while having a bit of fun driving, ATV Trials Temple is just the game for you.

SHORT LIFE

Life has always been on the short side, which is why there are plenty of people shooting around words like “YOLO”. It gets even shorter when you’re trapped in some cramped up space with a lot of death traps – it’s like someone wants you to actually die!

Short Life is kind of weird game – I’m still confused if it’s a platform game or a physics game. Whatever it is though, it has you playing as a random person who just wants to live long enough to see the light of day again. You’ll be controlling him/her to go through an obstacle course with death written all over it – there’s spikes everywhere, rotating pillars (with spikes of course), and falling pillars (no spikes, but will definitely flatten you like a pancake if you’re not careful). You’ll be using the left and right arrow to walk left and right, the up arrow to jump or stand up (if you were crouching), and the down arrow to crouch. The controls are tight so every press of the button has to be accurate to make sure your character stays alive. Although it’s not really a bad idea to die in this game, as the death animations are pretty funny on some occasions. Also, there are 3 stars in each stage that you can collect. These stars, aside from being a good challenge, can also be used to buy different “heroes” to use in stages, mostly for aesthetic changes only.

If you’re ready to go through 6 levels of mayhem and destruction, then head on over to Short Life – it’s fun, it’s challenging, and it’s a totally great game. Just have to warn those with a faint heart, you might want to skip this game as there’ll be blood splattered all over the game whenever you die. You can either take that as a warning, or a challenge to play this game perfectly. Whatever the case, for those who wants to play, this is a nice game to kill the time.

FLIPMASTER

Trampolines are always fun no matter what age you are. The feeling of staying up in the air and getting higher and higher as you go along is pretty exhilarating and will always make you want to have more. You don’t need a degree in rocket science or be an astronaut to fly high and have that feeling of being free from the pulls of gravity. If you don’t have one, well here’s your chance to find out how the physics work while having a bit of fun getting the highest score.

Flipmaster is a trampoline jumping simulator that lets you play as a random guy having fun on the trampoline and doing stunts. That’s how simple the game is. You just jump around, do stunts, gain points, earn coins, and have fun. It’s a pretty easy game to learn and the game actually starts you off with a very complete tutorial that’ll teach you how to do the stunts and what not to do so you can continue playing. Basically, the goal is to keep jumping without landing on your tummy or head on the trampoline. As long as you’re landing on your feet or back, you’ll jump up and will be given the chance to do a stunt. You do stunts by clicking and holding the left mouse button while in the air. Once you start pressing, your player will tuck himself in and do a forward roll. You’ll have to make sure to time your roll and judge whether you’ll fall flat on your face or on your back or feet. As you do more stunts, you’ll gain more and more points. There’ll also be floating coins that you can grab so you can buy aesthetic upgrades like new stadium and stuff. It’s optional, but it’s cool and easy to get so why not?

Flipmaster gives a warning to not re-enact whatever happens in the game, which is nice since most of the players of this game will be kids and might try it out. That’s going the extra mile. This game is very simple, easy to learn, and very fun. If you’re looking for a game to play on your commute or if you’re bored, then you came to the right place.

ENIGMA STATION

There are a lot of developers out there with ideas just pouring over, and Enigma Station the fruit of one of those devs hard labor. It’s a game that doesn’t really have anything yet, but in time, it’ll be something that people will be talking about (if the dev/devs would continue work on it, but seeing the changelogs, it looks like that’s something we don’t need to worry about anytime in the near future).

Enigma Station is a game that’s still in very, very early development. There’s not much to do, but you’re able to test out a few abilities that are currently available to you. The game doesn’t really have a tutorial right now, too, but you’ll be using your keyboard to move around and navigate through what looks like a little test area to try out your guns and moves.  The test area has platforms for you to jump on and just move around with. The game is planned to be a metroidvania type of game, and already has a story drafted, but it’s not final yet and may change along the way, but basically it’s about a war being fought in space. Unknown to many, though, a virus has been spreading in a station (the Enigma Station) and it’s taking the lives of those inside the station. It’s up to you to save anyone else that’s still alive and destroy the virus before it can get out and destroy everything else in the universe.

I’d have to be honest, there isn’t really much of a game here, but it shows a lot of promise and would be nice if people could play the game and let the devs know how awesome it is and would be. We suggest keeping an eye out for Enigma Station as we can tell that this one is gonna be awesome once it’s done!

GRAND THEFT PIZZA

The game jam is an awesome place to find budding developers and see their wild minds come to life in the games they make. Here’s one with a concept that isn’t really original, but has  been polished and is created with such love that it’s impossible not to love it.

Grand Theft Pizza is just a simple action / shooter game that lets you play as a guy who goes wild and shoots everyone in sight. The game doesn’t really have too much of the pizza, but is heavy on the action. You’ll start off in a room with nothing much but your guns and the shirt on your back. You’re inside some building and your goal is get to the last room with the boss. Each room will be filled with enemies although some rooms will have health pickups to help you out. You move around using the W, A, S, and D keys and use the mouse cursor to aim your weapon. The left mouse button is used to shoot your gun. Many rooms will have windows, and these windows can be used  to shoot enemies within that room. You’ll use not only your gunning and dodging skills, but also your cunning in making sure you reach the end.

The game is really short, but that’s because the game is actually incomplete, but judging from what we’ve played, this game is going the right direction. It’s a great game already with awesome music, smooth controls, and gameplay that’ll keep you pumped.

Grand Theft Pizza is a game that’ll keep you playing despite it being in German (not that bad even if you don’t understand it, the game is so simple you’ll still know how to play) and it being too short. If you want an action game pumped with adrenaline, give Grand Theft Pizza a go!

KUJA – a weird game

There’s a bunch of weird little games around the internet, and I can confidently say that KUJA would be one of them, but then we can also say that not all weird games are bad, in fact, this game also proves that. It’s weird, but it’s fun and strange at the same time. It’s going to be a while before I put this game down, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
KUJA is a bar brawler simulator that lets you play as a random drunk dude out for a brawl with a bunch of other guys, even including the bouncer (you’re all probably drunk, which is why this is happening)! The goal of the game is to beat up the most number of people before you pass out from getting beat up, yourself. You have a health bar at the top of the screen that goes down every time you get hit (or when you are down and not standing up), and goes up every time you take someone out. There’s no need to worry about the controls since you have just 3 buttons, that’s the left arrow button to punch forward with your left arm, the right arrow button to punch forward with your right arm, the pressing up will let you jump (or stand up if you are down). The punches work a bit weird in a sense that wherever your arm is pointing, this is what is considered “forward”. So for example, if your arm is behind you then press the punch button of that arm, you will punch backward. To get your arms back forward, press nothing to let your character take the brawl stance again. The game starts out with you on one side and your opponents on the other. Your player will take a brawl stance and walk toward the nearest opponent for you to punch. Punching will make you move forward faster instead of waiting for your player to walk towards them. Getting zero on your health bar will give you a game over, and your score is the total people you take out, so try to take out plenty of people before you actually pass out.
KUJA is a weird little brawling game that looks weird and plays weird, but I can honestly say that his is a very fun game. Maybe it’s even a drunk brawl simulator instead of a real bar brawl simulator? But whatever it is, it’s fun, and that’s what really matters! Play it now!

Combat 3

First person shooters are all the rage right now. Almost all the gaming platforms are getting all the different shooters that developers have to offer, but what about those that don’t want to get a console just to shoot people in the face? Well, you have Combat 3!

Combat 3 is a first person shooter that runs using the Unity engine, which means this game has a graphical edge over many of the browser games available on the internet. Most of the shooters around the internet is either a Minecraft themed shooter with Minecraft skins and backgrounds, or Counterstrike themed with Counterstrike skins and backgrounds, but Combat 3 is a kind of a mix between both, as the game offers Minecraft backgrounds with Counter Strike skins, which makes it unique and fun at the same time. As mentioned, the visuals of this game are superb due to it being run on the Unity engine for browsers. The controls are as simple as most first person shooter in the PC market. W, A, S, and D will make your character move around the map while the mouse aims your cursor and can be used to look around. The left mouse button is used to shoot using your current weapon and the right mouse button is used to toggle “aim down sight” mode, which increases your weapon’s accuracy while sacrificing movement. The left shift button can be pressed and held down to make you sprint. Pressing 1 to 3 switches your weapon with the available weapons that you have, from a main weapon, to a sub weapon, to a melee weapon.
Combat 3 is a great shooter with great visuals and simple gameplay mechanics, just shoot each other, get kills until the time runs out, win. If you want to play a first person shooter without having to buy a console, then Combat 3 is one of the best choices out there.

Pixel Warfare 4

The game Minecraft has been a huge hit for the past couple of years, and there have been a lot of games that has taken inspiration from the multi-million selling game. Pixel Warfare 4 is no exception, but that doesn’t mean that this game is a clone, though, it just means that this game is 2 times more awesome than it should be!

Pixel Warfare 4

So what is Pixel Warfare 4? This game is a first person shooter that plays like a regular first person shooter, but looks entirely like Minecraft. The goal of this game is to try to stay alive until the timer runs out. Every time a round starts, one of all the players will be a zombie, and anyone the zombie kills will turn into another zombie. This goes on until either the timer runs out or everyone has been transformed into a zombie. The survivors will be given a wide variety of weapons they can use to survive the coming wave of zombies, but once they are turned into zombies, they will have nothing but their limbs to use to kill the survivors. Control wise, this game plays like any other PC first person shooter games. You use W to walk forward, A and D to strafe left and right, and S to walk backwards. You use your mouse to aim and the left mouse button to shoot and right mouse button to aim (if available).

Killing zombies (or survivors, whatever team you are one) has never been this fun! And it has never been this familiar since they are using the Minecraft aesthetics to run the game. If you are a fan of Minecraft and an even bigger fan of first person shooters, Pixel Warfare 4 may just be the game you need to quench your thirst for both.
