  1. As a teen I used to spend hours in the arcade pumping quarters into Guantlet. This was an amazing 4 player co-op dungeon crawler where you had to battle enemies and share supplies. It always made the game more interesting when someone joined the game and would grab all the health potions and food - even if they didn't need it. That type of game play is directly reflected in the new game from Powerhoof. Crawl pits "co-op" players against each other for honor, money, glory, and the chance to escape but there is a hitch - only one player is actually alive. You start the game in a room with all four players alive - either you and 3 friends, or you and computer controlled bots - where you must battle to the death. The suvivor will continue the quest to defeat the main boss. Those that met an early death need not dispair, you are not out of the game yet. You become a spirit capable of possessing traps and summoning monsters to kill the hero. If you are able to kill the hero, you regain your humanity, become the hero and try to complete the quest. The last hero takes your place as a spirit and the cycle comtinues. While in hero form you will have access to a blacksmith where you can buy weapons, potions and new moves provided you have the gold. The ghosts can earn wrath, which is used in between floors to upgrade the monsters you summon. The monsters will evolve and take on more powerful forms as you progress. To get to the final boss, the hero must be level 10 to open the portal. You only gain XP when you are playing as the hero. If you reach the portal and are not level 10 you will have to find stairs to the next level. If you are level 10 and decide to go after the boss, the 3 spirits can posess the boss to impeade your progress. If you fail against the boss, you will be transported back into the dungeon. You have a total of 3 tries against the boss before the game will end automatically. The controls scheme is fairly simple. No matter which form you are in you have 2 attacks, so there isn't a difficulty curve to learn. One nice thing they have built in is that your character will get tired if you constantly attack, so you can't spam the attack button to win all your fights. You will have to move around during battles to avoid getting killed by your 3 foes. Graphics for the game are 100% old school. When you first fire up the game you are greeted with a screen that tells you to Insert Coin. Do not let the look of the game deter you from playing, there is a lot of fun to be had in this title. The background music is a mix of upbeat adventuring tunes and creepy music that sets the tone for the dungeon. This game can be played solo. You start out as the hero and you face off against 3 computer controlled bots. When you starrt out you can even select their difficulties. So you can play against a team of easy opponents, hard foes, or even mix it up to vary the experience. Where this game really shines is when you have 3 othere friends jump in with you to play. The trash talking and competition is off the charts. Unfortunately the game only supports local multiplayer, so if your friends aren't close by you, theree is a chance you will miss out on some of the best gameplay the title has to offer. Crawl is available now on XB1, PS4, and Steam. You can pic it up on the platform of your choice for $14.99. 8/10
  2. 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. an·ox·e·mi·a (ān'ŏk-sē'mē-ə) n. An absence of oxygen in arterial blood This is just one of the ways that you can die in the new game just released by Badland Games that bears the name of the affliction. Anoxemia is a story driven exploration game that will have you questioning the game world around you. You play as Dr Bailey an underwater explorer whose job it is to gather plant specimens. You are not alone in your quest, you are accompanied by an operations drone named ATMA. ATMA will help you through the use of sonar and as your only light source in the ocean depths. After something happens to the erest of your crew you must complete your mission with only the help of of ATMA. Your mission is not just a walk on the ocean floor though. Besides trying to find the sea grasses, you will also have to find more oxygen for your suit as well as power for the drone. There are also upgrades scattered across the ocean floor. Unfortunately you are not alone in the big blue ocean. There are large mines and underwater munitions leftover from the war that will hamper your progress. You also have to avoid acidic waters and other toxic environments as they will sap you of your energy. The game controls are on point. This is good because there are many times when you will have to manuever between multiple obstacles that can kill you and precision is key. There is a slight amount of learning to be had, but after a few deaths you will understand how things interact with each other in the environment. The graphics in the game are dark, but that is because they are trying to replicate what it is like deep below the surface of the ocean. I don't have have a problem with the in game graphics, while a bit dark, they play very well with the environment and the story. What I do take issue with is all of the promotional graphics that were released before the game came out on XB1. For some reason there were no in game screenshots released for this game, and that can be a bit misleading if you haven't seen the game on other platforms or the developers website. Anoxemia is out now on XB1, Steam and PS4 for $7.99. If you are looking for an interesting, story driven adventure game this is one to add to your wish list. The levels will keep you on your toes and it is a journey worth taking. 7/10
  4. Indie game developer SigTrap Games has released a new flying shooter along with game publisher Merge Games LTD. Sublevel Zero Redux puts you in the shoes of the last pilot standing as you take control of a lone gunship and try to save the world. As you take over the last gunship, you will pilot your way through procedurally generated levels. The pressure is on for you to destroy the enemies, collect parts and nanites to craft more powerful weapons, and of course destroy the reactor at the end of each level and move on. Which guns, missles and hull will you pair together to make your ultimate death machine? The object of the game is fairly simple - destroy your enemies while you fly through tunnels of a large spaceship. The execution is where the game stands out from the other games in the genre. Not only are you able to fly forward, backwards, left and right, but using the d-pad will allow you to increase or decrease you altitude. Tap left or right on the pad and you will roll 45 degrees in that direction. You have full range of motion in this shooter and you will need it. Dodging fast charging enemies will require you to learn how to deftly move your ship. And since the weapons you start with are not the most accurate, you will have to try and get in close to make sure your bullets find their mark. Having 6 degrees of freedom also means that you will be using almost every button and trigger on your controller to make the most of the control scheme. The graphics in the game may seem a bit simple at first, but as you progress through the levels the simple tunnels you are flying through give way to beautiful caverns. Since the game is procedurally generated, there are no save points or extra lives, each play through is very unique. It also gives the game a high replay value. Don't think if you complete the 4 levels that you see listed that you are done, that is just the start of this adventure. Sublevel Zero Redux is out now on XB1, PS4 and Steam for $19.99. There is also a limited edition physical copy available on PS4 if you like to have the disc in your collection. 7/10 Review originally posted here
  5. Headup Games has released a new adventure, puzzle, platformer that will have you chasing after bad guys and searching for your friends. Toby - The Secret Mine tells the story of young Toby, one of the last remaining residents of his village. He must venture out into the dark, unforgiving world and rescue his 26 friends. You set out across the bleak landscape in search of your friends trapped in cages. Along the way you will have to solve puzzles to alter the landscape to allow you to pass and disarm deadly traps. But not all of your friends are sitting out in the open. You will have to poke into the darkness to try and see in the enemies have hidden any of the village residents there. The puzzles will make you rely on most of your senses. Besides the typical reflexes, you will have to have a keen eye to spy triggers for deadly traps, and be listening for strange creaking noises that might mean a loose floor board that can be broken. As you progress through the levels you will have to build on the the skills you have learned to solve more complex problems. Game graphics are, for the most part, dark and eerie. They convey the sense that you are on an overwhelming quest, that you are under prepared for in trying to save the village residents. Tihe stark palette really helps set the tone. The 1st half of the game most of the foreground is all black, so you get very accustomed to it, but suddenly you get thrust into a snow world that is blindingly white and it takes a little bit to adjust. The game music helps add to the spooky atmosphere. This game is a puzzle platformer at heart. For the most it is not really difficult, it will just take some trial and error. And those errors, while frustrating, will rack up a pretty impressive death count for most players. To be honest I wandered into several traps just to watch poor Toby bite the dust. But then again, Toby went into the beyond many times just because of my lack of skills at times. Death has little impact on your game progress. If you die you are transported back to the start of the last puzzle you have not completed. This makes it easier to push through the puzzles until you finally figure them out. Toby - The Secret Mine is out now on XB1, PS4, Wii U and Steam for $9.99. You can even grab it on Android or iOS.

(KC) It was like traveling with out the headache of trying to get there. You get a chance to create a friendship with someone you must likely wouldn't meet. 4) If you could get rid of any one of the US states, which one would you get rid of and why? (KC) None because America is the best. 5) Over the years what is the one vehicle thats your go to when its time to mob with a group online? (KC) The blackhawk on Battlefield Bad Company 2 because no matter what all of us could do every part and keep that helicopter up all game and have fun. 6)What has been your favorite video game Easter egg over the years? (KC) Grand Theft Auto ones because they put in Easter eggs that have to do with all the Grand Theft Auto before. 7) What do you think are the biggest advantages and disadvantages from social media and video games now and in the future? (KC) Advantage is that if the community is having real problem or issues with a part of game you can notify the developer's and they can fix the issue/problem. The disadvantages are having a lot of people that come from different games and come to a game like battlefield. They want it to play like or be more like the game they came from. So you well have a lot of people cry about something that really is not that bad or doesn't need to be fix. But the developer's will fix it to help out the cry baby's. 8) If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be and why? (KC) The power of invisibility. So if need be I can vanish from site or go in for the best flank. 9)What's the last book you read? (KC) The Bluford Series. 10) What's the best movie you've seen in the last year?

(KC) Ashton Kutcher just so I can be with Mila Kunis 14) Why do you choose to fly over close quarter combat? (KC) I like to fly because it's a whole different style of playing and not many people can master or even use the helicopters. So It puts you in a special type of category 15) What was your favorite gun to shoot? and why? For me it was a Mosin Nogant. (KC) M416 because it's reliable and its been with me since Battlefield Bad Company 16) As a top 10 pilot what is the most challenging part of playing BF4? (KC) Having to deal with SO MANY STRINGERS/IGLA. 17) What three things do I hate the most about BF4 as a pilot? (only use one spot for lock ons) (KC) 1. To many Stringers/Iglas 2. The invisible walls they use to have. 3. Pilots that don't PTFO. Like the pilots that constantly try to spawn trap 18) Hate to inform you there is body armor/flak jacket in Hardline but as a gadget, is this an improvement or should or be taking out? (KC) Even though I haven't play the finished product I can see it being very beneficial to the player's. From taking a few extra rounds as a(n) infantry soldier or vehicle user. 19) As a top 200 chopper pilot I agree that its either best of friends or worst of enemies, with the ability to add a stinger armory and be a sniper does this make snipers over powered? (Kc) No 20) What are your thoughts on BF Hardline? (KC) It's definitely a different type of game from all the other. But it's definitely made with the key element that battlefield is know for and that's using a lot of team work. But a negative part of Hardline (in my opinion) is that it's made mainly for Call of duty player's to get them into the Battlefield series. Big Thanks to KC Soulkidd for doing this 20Q and thank you for stopping by and checking out another 20Questions here at FrontTowardGamer. What has been your favorite Easter egg in video games? Tell us below in the comments section.
  8. When XCOM 2 was first announced as a PC exclusive, it was met with a fair degree of wailing and gnashing of teeth from console gamers. Especially considering that its predecessor, XCOM: Enemy Unknown was released to a multitude of systems; even smartphones and the PS Vita. Well, we console peasants can rejoice, because Firaxis Games has recently announced that XCOM 2 will be gracing the PS4 and Xbox One this year. The above trailer shows off a few of XCOM 2's accolades, and some snippets of storyline, but no actual gameplay. In a post on PlayStation Blog, Creative Director Jake Solomon and Lead Producer Garth DeAngelis went into more details about the port. They said that they heard the cries and impassioned pleas of console gamers, and that the port is being externally developed by The Workshop. According to the blog post, The Workshop has been working with Firaxis for some time to patch out bugs from XCOM 2. The Workshop has a good track record of projects, having worked with Tango Gameworks on The Evil Within and Gearbox on Borderlands 2 DLC. Further details on XCOM's official website were also released. Unfortunately, despite the delay, the base edition console version won't be bundled with any additional DLC or content. Gamers who pre-order will receive the Resistance Warrior Pack, which has an additional recruit and expanded customization options, and the DLC will be bundled in the Digital Deluxe Edition. XCOM 2 will be launching in North America for PS4 and Xbox One, on September 6th, 2016. The rest of the world (me, in other words) will have to wait until September 9th, 2016. Sources: PlayStation Blog, and XCOM.com.

  10. The Japan based Q-Games known for PixelJunk, announced yesterday night on Twitter that The Tomorrow Children will have an open beta weekend from Friday, June 3rd - Monday, June 6th. After a successful closed beta in early January of this year they decided to give more "comrades" a chance to experience the world for themselves! The Tomorrow Children is an open world sandbox adventure game, some might say it has a bit of Minecraft-esque feel when mining the different islands that pop up in order to help restore your town. Everything you find while mining the islands will help to restore your town, one of those being Matryoshka Dolls which are the residents of your town, and they can be brought back to life once back in your town. Be wary though, not all towns are sunshine and rainbows as you will deal with giant Godzilla type as well as various other size monsters called Izverg. There are various weapons you can equip or build (which you will definitely have to work for) in order to help protect yourself and your fellow town residents with. Join all the other fellow comrades in the fight for humanity during the open beta on Friday, June 3rd; the starting times for the regions are: US Pacific 1 AM, US Eastern 4 AM, GMT 9 AM, Saudi Arabia 11 AM, Australia (Sydney) 6 PM! The beta client can be downloaded here from the PlayStation Store. For a bit of an in depth look at the gameplay check out this video.
