Three for the Road: 03.27.2011

Greetings folks! Welcome to the April 17th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. This week we take a look at a few more indie PC gems that are sure to entertain you for a while. This edition also marks the first time I am posting the games with GigaTribe download links in addition to the standard web-based download links. For years I've been trying to find a file sharing (P2P) package that I liked and GigaTribe comes closest to what I've been looking for.

Ultimately, I'm thinking of getting a P2P network established for fans of indie/classic gaming. So if you'd like to join, send an invite (from GigaTribe) to Mythran42 and we'll see if we can turn this grass roots effort into something larger. :-)

Note: The GigaTribe links download straight from my laptop PC.. so whether it's online or not will dictate the availability of the files.

 03.20.2011Greetings folks! Welcome to the March 20th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. Sorry for the lack of updates the last couple of weeks but my schedule has just been crazy.

Anyway, I'm back this week with a few more indie games for you to check out. First up we have a new port of a shoot'em up- this time for the venerable Amstrad CPC. Next, we take a look at a new Atari 2600 game with possibly the most horrid storyline since Custer's Revenge. Finally, we look at a shoot'em up that takes on the sensitive topic of bigotry as portrayed by squares and circles.

Great stuff!

Three for the Road: 02.27.2011Greetings folks! Welcome to the February 27th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. This week, I take a look at an eleven year old DOS based BBS door-game which has only recently been released to the public.. albeit, reworked as a single-player or local multi-player ANSImation RPG. We take a look at a minimalistic platforming game with destructible environments which turns out to be much more fun than it first appears. Finally, we take a look at a classic point-and-click style adventure game with a high attention to detail. If you're a fan of classic Sierra or LucasArts adventures then this may be just what you're looking for.

Wooo! We also take a look at a unique arena / tube shooter which has been taken off active sale and is now being given away for free.

Three for the Road: 02.06.2011Greetings folks! Welcome to the February 6th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. This week we are going to take a look at three great doujin shooters by the one man powerhouse that is Kenta Cho.

First we take a look at one of his early bullet barrage shooters, then we explore his shoot'em up meets Katamari Damacy mash-up, and finally we take a gander at his homage to one of the greatest fixed screen shooters ever made.

BTW: This is only a sampling of Kenta Cho's work, so be sure to check out his website for some more great shoot'em up action.

 01.16.2011Greetings folks! Welcome to the January 16th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. As always, we have a nice collection of indie developed titles for you to check out.

First up, is a multiplatform (Win, Mac and Linux) implementation of the Tron light cycle concept. Second, a modern day remake of SkyRoads that, if anything, is even harder than the original. This game is also multiplatform (Win, Mac and Linux). And third, an action adventure game about a man who is suffering amnesia and finds himself stranded in the tundra.. Now he must piece together what happened and who he is. This game is Windows only, but is available in it's native French language or English.

Enjoy.
