Zen Pinball 2: South Park: Super-Sweet Pinball Review

Cheesy Poofs, as far as the eye can see.

South Park Super Sweet Pinball

HIGH Butters in a bear suit. Need I say more?

LOW Getting excited over Mr. Hanky multi-ball. Shame on me.

WTF It's South Park in pinball form. The whole game is a series of ‘WTF' moments

Volgarr the Viking Review

A Fresh Bit of the Past


Volgarr The Viking

HIGH Finally seeing the 7th world.

LOW How did the zoomed-in camera mode wind up in the game, let alone as the default setting?

An Interview with Duck Game Developer Landon Podbielski

I stand behind a couch playing Duck Game for 15 minutes before I realize I am playing the game with its sole developer. That's how unassuming Vancouver-based Landon Podbielski looks as he lounges on one of the two couches in the OUYA booth at IndieCade 2014 on a hot and sunny Friday afternoon. He has long hair, a beard, inquisitive brown eyes, and well-worn sneakers. When I finally realize who Podbielski is, I ask him for a quick interview. In the same unassuming manner, he agrees.

An Interview with Alex Rushdy and Dave Proctor from Runbow Developer 13AM Games

Alex Rushdy and Dave Proctor from 13AM Games stand around the kiosk for the 9-player party game Runbow for the Wii U and shout at people to join the next round. This is the first time 13AM Games has exhibited at IndieCade. Alex is the game's Creative Director and Designer and Dave Proctor is the Producer. Both are enthusiastic and eager to share their pick-up-and-play 2D running game with the gathering crowd. It's a game that's easy to fall in love with.

An Interview with Ned Green from Too DX

Sportsball for the Wii U is a game that combines the 2D aerial battles of classic Joust with the frenetic action of a schoolyard soccer game - if you ever played schoolyard soccer with dozens of balls at once.

Sportsball is the second game from Too DX, a small indie shop based in Seattle, WA. While enjoying the many games in Nintendo's booth at IndieCade 2014, I had a quick chat with Too DX Business Developer Ned Green about his company and game.

Velocity 2X Review

Do It Quickly


Velocity

HIGH The second Glaive battle.

LOW Occasional putzing around when switching between two control schemes.

WTF Oh, her name is "Kai Tana"? Haaaaaaa.

Blood Knights Review

Crushed by Influences

Blood Knights

HIGH Stomping over foes as some kind of giant tree-vampire-thing.

LOW Falling off a cliff because the framerate decided to attack me.

WTF Since you're already stuck in that deathtrap, you couldn't possibly need all your blood, could you?

Zen Pinball 2: The Walking Dead Review

Pinball & Zombies = Chocolate & Peanut Butter

Walking Dead Pinball

HIGH Seeing Lee and Clem kicking a ball around.
