Default My gaming resume after one month of absence.

Hello again! As most of you know Im been in time out for a month for mentioning a website - bad one, lesson learned), so back to gaming!


And now for the gaming part...

These are the games I bought:

Quadropus Rampage: Absolute brilliant endless game. I want more of these games: freemium done right, great sense of humor, addictive,... Only have good words about its gameplay, art and such things. Bought the doubler but it should be permanent, not consumable. But there its still time to make a permanent coin doubler + orb doubler pack for a couple of bucks, I would totally buy that.

LIMBO: The same experience on iPhone, and that means the exact same features that made it a masterpiece: Excellent controls, atmosphere, and learning curve. Same as with life: you learn from observation and from learning from mistakes. Stunning and marvelous. An indie gem.

1001 Attemps: I liked Leaping Legend so much that I also bought this one, and while the mechanics are almost the same I find this one a lot better: No IAP, faster gameplay, more addictive,... Having a blast.

CRUSH: Another Radiangames masterpiece. Awesome endless gameplay, hard as nails and incredibly rewarding, unlockable content, no IAP, will keep it forever.

Cling Thing: The colorful version of Tentacles with big replayability that never ceases to amaze me level after level making it the best Chillingo game of late (with permission from Dead Ahead).

Chubbins: One useful thing I discovered from SlideToPlay... Incredibly hard but at the same time incredibly good kind of platformer. My first world under 15 minutes and on the second one I cant get pass the first level. Still very good. Hardcore players only.

Some mistakes I made:

IceBreaker: I bought this for the solely purpose of helping development of Super Feed Me and hoping that sometime it finally arrives on iOS.
As for the game, I thought that I could stand yet another physics puzzler (after the Little Luca and Bridgy Jones fiasco) but no, I was wrong. I despise it. Nitrome sure knows to make good games but I wonder what could have happened if this wasnt published by Rovio.

Little Luca: Hit and miss game, half of me likes it because it has amazing gameplay mechanics but the other half hates it, so much trial and error... You have to do it perfectly or you fail miserably. Skipping ahead made me see all it has to offer anyways. On the verge of being deleted.

Bridgy Jones: I liked it at the beginning but quickly grew old: repetitive, dull... In resume, not my kind of game at all. Deleted. Wont look back.

These 3 games made me loose my likeness for the "Physics-" genre. Wont buy any more games that starts with that. Never. Physics and Flinging games, both out.

Some iOS7 problems:

DOT Space Adventure: Not the games fault, its good, but on iOS7 doesnt control well, misses taps constantly and have to hit the home button and get back in to make it work. Will place it on hold for now. Will reinstall in the future.

League of Evil 3: Doesnt work well on iOS7, deleted until a patch comes up. But what I played was fantastic.

Tasty Tadpoles: Not compatible with iOS7 but it is good enough to make me persevered until I finish arcade mode, I will leave puzzle mode until the official iOS7 and a patch arrives.

Some other stuff:

Sea Conquest: Got a promo code for this one, its an endless runner with no IAP and all, its good but way too difficult and too grindy as items on the shop are way too overprices. Also unpolished as in lack of indicator for the shooting for example.

Despicable Me Minion Rush: The more time I played it the bigger grind it became. It was Gameloft in the end and it didn't surprised me. Got a few things going on for it but it didn't fool me one bit from the beginning. Fun for a very brief period of time. Deleted.

I finished these games:

Bastion: Amazing from beginning to end. One of those few games that sticks on your gaming heart forever only leaving good memories. Outstanding, amazing, stunning, addictive, awesome, lush,... You get the idea. Buy it.

NightSky: Not very long, only took me few hours to complete (exaggerating a bit), but what an amazing time I had with it. Incredibly clever and a great gaming experience overall, another amazing game that sticks to your heart never letting go. Buy it.

Scurvy Scallywags: A breath of fresh air for a dying genre. Enjoyed it but took longer than expected to finish... Way too long. All bosses should give you a Shanty Verse... Coin doubler gives you everything you will ever need. Now waiting for The Cave.

Miseria Worlds Apart: Half fun half frustrating but was well worth the trip. Didn't take long to complete though.

Cling!: Update didn't remove my progress but encouraged me to finish it. Its was a good trip but didn't log into GameCenter and didn't registered anything :/

And thats all I guess... Did I miss a really good game? Haven't looked at the threads at all and the forum itself except on wednesday nights, so I could have missed some.

Oh, and I been enjoying the hell out of Worm Run lately, it has become my best endless runner of all time. The more I play the worse I become, but some reason I love it and has me glued to it. Its fantastic. Play it at least once each day. So good.

And some other things:

I discovered the full potential of Twitter and I talk there from time to time, doing "140 character long" reviews, chatting with developers, suggesting them things and recommending worthy old and new games. You can follow me: @Matt__Frost if you like.

And the ban also gave me the time to find a job, LOVE, and much more outside of gaming, lots more... All for the better. No hard feelings just gratitude.

Welcome back. Twitter is awesome. There is life outside of the abyss that is Touch Arcade, congratulations on love (whatever that is, says the married guy... haha).

I used to be a twitter fanatic, that's where I signed up to beta test my first game (Questlord, I think?). I talked to a lot of devs and shiz. Might have to go back some day.

Thank you all. <3 For some reason it doesn't let me quote it all so...

Yes I like Twitter but I look at it really often so I think it may becoming to much of an obsession now, must resist it

I think see is everything I ever wanted but lets see about that marriage thing you talk about...

I saw Spiral and Kinetic Damage but its not my kind of games at all, prefer endless runners, platformers or unique endless games. And dont like episodic gamer either. When the full thing arrives lets talk again.

I will download Maximus its free so no harm there, thanks for the suggestion, keep em coming...

Thanks again for the welcoming back, much appreciated!

Now that you've mentioned that, try Attack of the Spooklings. It has a full free version with ads to try, and a premium version if you like it. It's got good controls, nice retro looks, and really good arcade mayhem pacing.

Contra Evolution was updated, and it's surprisingly playable now. Controls have improved, so you might want to check that out too.

Dark Nebula HD is a re-release, but with more levels, and visual improvements. It's tilt-based (which is the reason it didnt stay long on my device), but i can safely say it controls well enough to be playable. If tilt doesnt bother you, it's a good pickup. It's a sort of a speedrun game, but more labyrinthine than the usual platformers.
