Indigo Ocho - Free today

I was tipped off by Axolotl Studios asking me to write a review about their new (first) game this morning, and I actually quite like it. I won't spam my blog with a link to the review, you can just click on my sig, it's there. Basically though, it's a 3D puzzle/maze/action game, and it's pretty slick. Definitely got some production value here. Gameplay is good, action can get a little frenetic when your clock is running down and you still have't unlocked the exit. Control is accelerometer-based and seems to be tweaked well enough that you don't have to fight with the sensitivity. Nice variety of graphics as you progress through the levels, too.

Plus, it's free for the rest of today, possibly into some part of tomorrow depending on the time zone they're dealing with.

Video here, plus a few hotlinked screenies. (It's okay, it's my bandwidth I'm stealing.)

DOH!

Bet that means they're setting the pricing back to normal.

s'okay though. There will still be a chance to get it free. Axolotl gave me some codes, so I'm gonna hold a bit of a contest soon to give them away.

It's not that great so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

This made me cringe when I opened it up to play, I don't rate 1 star games usually, but this is a 1 star game! It's way too cramped, you can't see what you're doing half the time, and the patterns all clash together in a really ugly way.

Look at that third screenshot up there if you don't believe me! Get it while it's free and see for yourselves, but this isn't worth your time right now.
