My Thoughts On: Runers – I hunger for magic!

Runers by Let’s Get Kraken Games is a top-down, indie, rogue-like adventure game, which makes it absolute nerd-bait because us folk love it when someone says “indie” or “rogue-like” or “permadeath”. Wait, hang on, no, I hate it when people say “permadeath”. Godammit! Anyway, it’s a pretty fun little game which takes a lot after the immensely popular Binding of Issac but also then adds the element of spellcrafting with over 250 unique spells available for discovery and usage within the game. It’s a game that I personally feel is best described by it’s gameplay, as there really is no other element to it, and so I figured that instead of reviewing it I would simply create a My Thoughts On of the game so that I could voice my few criticisms and raise whatever points I could about the game whilst also showing you as much of the gameplay as I can given that I cannot play the game for shit. Anyway, check it out after the jump!

Our Thoughts On: Legend of Dungeon – Sidescrolling dungeon delving

Legend of Dungeon is a relatively new indie game coming from the folks at Robot Loves Kitty. It’s described as a “4 Player Co-op Rogue-Like-like Beat’em’up” and is vaguely reminiscent of games like Dungeons of Dredmor. However, it also comes with a twist on the standard isometric viewpoint of the dungeon delving rogue-like game in it’s graphical and gameplay style as you explore the dungeon in which you are placed from a side-scrolling perspective. With random dungeons, loots, enemies and magics, Tim has provided us with his “My Thoughts On” the game which you can check out after the jump!

War of Human Tanks – Preview

Fear not readers of MMGaming! Seb and Tim are back and we are ready to once again jump right back into our duties, and we promise they’ll be just as slow and haphazard as always… That’s just our style! Anyway this Friday’s review comes in the form of a Preview video Tim recorded a couple of weeks ago. War of Human Tanks is an anime style strategy game of a similar style to the famous Advance Wars for Gameboy, with the odd twist of a gameplay mechanic which is a combination of both real-time and turn-based strategy. In the game you take control of a number of, well as the name suggests, human tanks on a board covered in fog of war. The above interesting gameplay mechanic Tim shows and discusses and in the video you also get to see a fair bit of gameplay. You can check it out and read a little more after the jump.

Tower Wars – Tower Defence/Attack (Video Impressions)

Tower Wars is Supervillain Games’ shot at making a multiplayer tower defence game, which recently seen its release on Steam for £6.99 (About $11).  Ingredients for this game: take your Tower Defence genre and add the multiplayer element, here we have the base of the game. Now add a dash of Real-Time Strategy, being careful not to add to much, finally add a very generous lump of Steam Punk style and leave to bake for 25 – 30 minutes… No but in all seriousness this is a very fresh and brand new type of game in our eyes.

Our Thoughts On: Symphony

On Monday of this week developer Empty Clip Studios published the casual indie game Symphony. The game is similar in a way to Audiosurf in that the game is based around importing your own music from your computer into the game and then playing the game along with that music. It’s a simple enough premise where you play as a small ship defending and arena against waves of enemies where the speed and intensity of the enemy waves is determined by the speed and intensity of the music. It’s masterfully done and is an absolute joy to play. We thought that the game would come across better with a video review rather than a written review so I have created a My Thoughts On: Symphony video for you all to enjoy. I play through three of my songs in the game and have a great time doing so. I would absolutely recommend you check out the video to sell yourself on the game because you should then head over to Desura or Steam to buy it! Check the video after the jump!

Our Thoughts On: Blacklight Retribution

Tim has been hard at work the past few weeks and has came up with another couple of “My Thoughts On” various different games. Today’s video is a “My Free Thoughts On” the free to play FPS Blacklight Retribution from the developers Perfect World. It’s an awesome semi sci-fi shooter featuring intense combat and a mass of customisation and quite a few nifty gameplay mechanics which make it stand above the usual modern shooter crowd. To check out some of the gameplay and to hear what Tim thinks about the game you should check out after the jump and, as always, the official MMGaming rating of the game will be after the video. Also, once you check out the video and realise that the game is pretty damn awesome you can head to the above link and download it!
