I have a confession to make, I am not the most graceful person in the world. In fact, about 15 years ago I shattered BOTH of my ankles chasing after the ice cream man. This little adventure ended with a plate and 6 screws in one ankle and a one of a kind story. So, I live out my dreams of flying high and leaping effortlessly through video games. But, if you ask anyone who has played a game with me that requires precious jumping – my dreams rarely come true. Recently, Grip Digital s.r.o. released DeadCore on Xbox One and PS4 and I got another shot at living out my dreams. DeadCore can best be described as a 1st person shooter, platformer, puzzler, speed runner. It is a mouth full to say, and a handful to play, but it is a wild ride. You have fallen endlessly through strong magnetic storms to awaken in a desolate world. You have no memory, and as you start to explore the world strange message start to appear around you. A huge tower appears out of the mist and you realize that you must climb it to find answers – you must reach the top. The game starts out simple enough, you learn the basics like walking and running. But, it would be too easy if you were running in the wide open spaces, so you are moving on thin platforms that are suspended in the air. Once you begin to get comfortable with the basics, jumps and double jumps thrown into the mix. Soon after you master the art of being a bunny, you are given a rifle to use. The rifle is not just for show. You will use the gun to open doors, disable traps, and eventually take out enemies. You have to be mindful of your aim because you have a limited number of shots. Another neat feature of the gun is that it tracks your time, so during speed runs you have that information right up front. This game is not for the faint of heart or those that are looking for a purely first person shooter experience. You will need some serious skills to get through this game and beat the time trials. That being said – everything in game is executed near flawlessly to make sure that you every chance to prove your worth. The graphics are spot on and the higher you climb on the tower the more dizzying the view gets as you look down into the abyss. One you complete the story aspect of the game you are not ready to hang up your shoes. You can tackle the whole thing over again in speed run mode. But this time you can mix things up and place the sections in the order that you want. This porovides you with almost unlimited variety and endless gameplay options. You can make you playlist as easy or as difficuly as you want. DeadCore is out now on XB1 and PS4. If you are looking for a game that will test you skills, or want to relive the glory days of speed running games where every second counts and precision is key – you need to add this title to you stack.
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
