  1. The Inner World - The Last Wind Monk

    Earlier this year Headup Games brought the Studio Fizbin game – The Inner World to consoles from PC. This was done to prepare everyone for the release of the sequel – The Inner World : The Last Wind Monk. The wait is over, the game is now out and it returns to Asposia and follows the adventures of the original characters. The Last Wind Monk picks up about 3 years after the events in the 1st game. The world of Asposia is not as rosy as we might have wished. Robert, the rightful King, is missing and Laura has been captured by Emil. Emil is a Conroyalist that believes the flute noses summoned the Basylians, turned Conroy to stone, and are to blame for all the worlds woes. He has made it his mission to round them all up and throw them into the wind fountain. This dark tone emanates through most of the game. Citizens live in fear they will be discovered as flute noses while others blindly hunt them. Robert almost wallows in self-doubt, due to his upbringing by Conroy, and this taints his normally cheerful demeanor. Much of the fun and light heartedness of the 1st game is lost in the shadows of this new Dystopian World, but there are a few pillars of light to be found. As with the 1st title, this is a point and click adventure. You will have to talk to everyone you meet to get the clues needed to solve the puzzles for each chapter. It’s then up to you to collect the items needed, in some cases combine them, and complete the task at hand. Just like the previous game, the puzzles range from fairly simple to running in circles frustrating. There are a few puzzles that even when you get all the clues, you will be left guessing at the correct answers. There is one, which I would almost classify as a mini game, called Knock Knock, that seems to rely more on luck than anything. The music in the game works very well to capture the mood of the scenes. It easily transitions from the heavier story moments to some of the light-hearted moments. The voice acting is good, but occasionally you will notice that Laura has an accent that comes and goes. The graphics are just as crisp as inn the original. It is nice to see that they have brought back many of the supporting characters from the original, and that the quality is just as good. The Inner World : The Last Wind Monk is out now on XB1, PS4, and Steam. The puzzles are harder than the 1st installment, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The game is worth checking out – but I would recommend playing the 1st game so you can play through the entire story arc. 9/10
  2. The Inner World

    Headup Games has recently published a Studio Fizbin game on consoles that has been available on PC for a while now. The Inner World is a family friendly puzzle game that is strong on story, contains thoughtful puzzles, and will keep you laughing no matter your age. It is one of those games that you can play with your children and not have to worry about something popping up that shouldn't. The Inner World is the story of Robert, a young orphan who is taken in by Conroy, the leader of the land of Asposia. Asposia is a land that resides within the hollowed out center of another world. Robert isn't like the other citizens of Asposia, but there is nothing wrong with being a bit different. While Conroy is busy giving a speech you a polishing his most valued possesion - a fosfos medallion. Unfortunately, you accidentally drop the necklace down the garbage shoot. Being the ever faithful child / servent you fling yourself down the chute to save the necklace for your mentor. What follows next is a great adventure where nothing less than the fate of your world hangs in the balance. You will meet new friends, uncover the true history of Asposia, and discover your origins. The game is essentially a point and click adventure, but there is so much more to it than that. The conversations that you have with other characters will open up other branching topics that will move the story along. It may also be the only way to get hidden achievements. The puzzles in the game range from easy to figure out to head scratchers. Gameplay is simple. You control Robert for most of the game, and have him collect items, and use them to further his quest. Fairly often you will have to combine several objects to try and get you out of a bind. The great thing is that the game calls you out if you are just trying to toss things together. I can't count the times when I was stuck I heard " That's just a random guess isn't it?" or similiar phrase after multiple failed attempts at combining things. It makes sure there is humor even when you might start to be getting frustrated with the game. I have to say I loved the dialogue in this game. Let's all admit that when there is text to read, or someone talking in a game 9 times out of 10 after a while we skip through it an hope we are not missing a vital plot point - we have all done it. This game I was right there through all the conversations. Many of them had me laughing, and there were even a few that had me raising an eye brow at the dark humor that was slipped in. Jokes that would go over a younger players head, but were clearly there for the seasoned gamer. The graphics are also stunning. The art is hand drawn and the attention to detail shows. While there isn't a lot of action in the game, the cut scenes are very well done and the overall feel of the game is highly polished. The Inner World is now out on XB1 and PS4 for $14.99. If you are a PC gamer you can grab it on Steam for the same price. 10/10
  3. Pixel Heroes - Byte + Magic

    Headup Games has brought The Bit Fathers game Pixel Heroes - Byte and Magic to XB1 players. If you haven't played before, this is a very retro inspired, RPG, with turn based combat and countless hat tips to other games that came previously in the genre. This game transports you back to the early days of computer games, but this trip isn't for the faint of heart. When you first fire up the game you will notice there are three campaigns to pick from, but you must complete one before you have the ability to unlock the next one. The game starts out on Hard difficulty, moves on to Brutal, then finally ends at Insane. Each adventure consists of 8 dungeons, and each dungeon has 8 rooms for you to conquer. There are 7 rooms that minecontain either chests or enemies and the final room will be home for the area boss. Each game starts out in the tavern, where all good adventures begin. You must pick your team of 3 hearty adventurerers from the 6 random patrons that are hanging out. If you are not happy with the crowd, you can re-roll everyone up to 5 times and hope to assemble your dream team. Once your team is set and you have been given the campaign overview you venture out into town. In town you can grab new weapons, spells, potions, and pick 1 of the 2 available quests. More become available as you progress - if you make it that far. As you set out to the dungeon of your choice you will have 2-3 encounters that are very dependant on RNG. No two trips are ever the same. Gameplay is straight forward. Attack the enemy and take them out before they kill you. Once you take out the foes see if any of the loot you snagged can upgrade your party and move onto the next battle. Each hero has 2 skills, some can heal while others have special attacks that they can use once in a while. No matter if you use a skill or attack with a weapon, each party member must rest between uses - this prevents you from stacking great gear on 1 players and having them power through all the fights. If you have a team member go down in battle, it is out until you are able to finish the quest , return to town and are able to have them revived. The graphics are a complete throw back and totally wonderful. As I was playing I was transported back to the days of Nintendo games and some of my first PC RPG games. Further immersing you into this blast from the past is the chip tune music. One thing that does pull you back into the present is all that random encounters I mentioned earlier. You are gloriously treated to references from all over geekdom. Pixel Heroes - Byte and Magic is not for the easily discouraged. It will take a few games to figure out which enemies are most vulnerable to which attacks. Even once you get this down, RNG can still come along and crush your dreams by never giving you health potions, or only dropping armor suitable for a house cat. But have no fear, the developers have you covered. They have added achievements for filling up the graveyard with your less than successful bands of heroes. You will here that familiar sound after your 1st full team death, then 10, 50 and 100 teams. Pixel Heroes - Byte and Magic is now available on XB1, Steam, and iOS. The console and PC version can be added to your collections for $9.99 each, while the mobile versions are a few dollars cheaper.
