  1. I have been playing games for over 3 decades and in that time I have seen puzzles games take many forms. Computerized Rubiks cubes, Tetris, MYST, Lemmings, and even games like Portal. But never in the thousands of titles I have played have I ever come across a game like Maize by Finish Line Games. Maize is a 1st person adventure puzzle game. I know what you are thinking – that doesn’t sound that different, that sounds like MYST. Well, MYST didn’t have sentient corn. Now you are thinking “that has to be a serious typo” but my keyboard is working fine and I am actually taking my meds. Corn that can walk, talk, and even help you figure out what you need to do next on your adventure. Oh, and don’t forget your Russian, robotic, bear companion that is along for the ride. Told you it was different. You wake up in a corn field with no idea how you got there or what you are supposed to be doing. After a bit of exploring, you find a large door that requires 3 keys to enter. A bit wandering reveals a farm house and starts you on your journey into the lab that lays behind the door. In the lab you will start to uncover answers to some of your lingering questions like how did the corn get this way, what is their fate, can corn dance? You will also learn the history of the lab and the two doctors, Ted and Bob, who ran its experiments. To progress through the facility, you will have to solve a series of puzzles. Most will require you to use objects that you have acquired from your surroundings. But not everything you grab is useful. There are 75 collectables that are stored in your folio that only count towards an achievement / trophy. Each of these items has an interesting description, so they do bear a once over. But there are at least that many with a purpose in the game. The graphics in Maize are spectacular. No matter if you are exploring the secret underground lab or wandering through the large corn field you will want to take a moment to admire the amount of detail that was included. Even the shadows on the induvial kernels of corn are almost mesmerizing. The audio is great. The voice acting is amazing. Face it, when you have a Russian, robotic bear insulting you and sentient corn leading you through a game what can go wrong? Maize is out now on XB1, PS4 and Steam. It is a great puzzle game that will keep you in stitches. There is also an achievement for completing the game in under 2 hours, so you can even speed run it if you have big enough cobs. Personally I am hoping for a stuffed Vladdy. 8/10
  2. 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.
