Games you should play but might not know about.
« on: September 19, 2014, 07:52:38 PM »

Receiver: PC. FPS. Single player only. Simulation.
An FPS. but not your average FPS.
In this game you have a gun. ONE gun. You never get another gun, until you die and respawn. There are three guns total, you only get one of them, at random, with each playthrough. All ammunition you find in that playthrough will be for that gun. You will find bullets, magazines (if you are using 2 of the 3 guns), tapes and maybe the odd torch, in the world to pick up. You will also find a huge, nearly empty building complex, and an ungodly amount of turrets and hoverdrones, all of which are programmed to end your life.

To fight off these killdrones, you have your gun. and your wits...

Oh, and if you play this like Quake, or Half Life, you are going to die horribly and repeatedly.
In this game you can control pretty much every aspect of the gun. When you spawn you will want to do these things, in no particular order.
Check the gun to see if it has a round chambered.
Examine your current inventory to see how many bullets are in the chambers/the magazine.
Reload the magazine/chambers fully if you can.
Make sure your gun has its safety/autofire disengaged (though autofire can be useful, it just chews ammo like crazy, and there isn't a lot).
Cock the hammer if it has one.
Unlock the slide if it has one.

Your mission is to find all 11 tapes, and not die.
Hoverdrones are fast, home in on you, and shock you in melee. Do not die.
Turrets are static, slowly revolve, when they see you they focus on you, take a second, and then open fire. They have fifteen bullets each in them. getting them to shoot you or other turrets to waste their ammo and save yours is a neat trick, but not recommended for repeated use. You will die. Do not die.
Death is permanent, in that if you die you have to start all over again, in a completely new, randomly generated building complex, with a new gun, and a random amount of magazines and/or bullets (you always have at least some bullets), and maybe a torch. Do not die.
Listen for the musical cues, they will help you not die.
One shot kills you. One shot does not necessarily kill the kill drones. Make them die, do not die yourself.

Upon finding all the tapes you may find out what the MindKill is, and how to save humanity... or you may not. Either way, do not die.
At first you will want the help up all the time so you can refernce it but soon you will quickly find yourself manipulating your gun as if you were a professional without ever needing the help visible.. though you may find yourself dropping a magazine by mistake if you panic. Don't panic, and you might not die.

It is pretty goddamn cheap on Steam at 3.99 or your local equivalent. It was made in seven days, and it's really, really good. Do not die.

Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender: PC, Shmup, retro, cats, cute, Nintendo Hard.
You remember Defender right? On the arcades? imagine that but with internet cats. except now they're mining milk from beneath the ocean and are coming under attack so it's up to you and your kitty (and maybe even a kitty pal) to use your super-weaponised mini-sub to protect these brave milk miners...

...yeah... it's about as crazy and wacky as it sounds, but it's a lot of fun, it's taking the pure aspects of Defender, updated them, then retro'd them again via C64 style chiptune music, and adorable pixelly graphics. Controls are great, tight and responsive and it's a lot of fun, just really, REALLY hard!

Game is also on Steam, fairly cheap, a good few levels and both easy and normal difficulty, as well as a fun Arcade mode where death means you have to start all over again, but success means you can continue getting more and more powerful and you bring your powerups to the next stage.
Price is 4.99 or regional equivalent, link is below.
