I haven't played Dark Athena, but I really liked Escape from Butcher Bay when I played through it on the Xbox a few years ago. The emphasis on stealth and interaction with NPCs made it fell more like an adventure game than a "standard" FPS, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much.

Managed to sit down and fly through this one over the weekend. I never beat this one as a kid, and my Zelda Cart doesn't tend to be compliant and work when I want to play through it. So when I got the Zelda Series from Virtual Console with Club Nintendo Points, I wanted to go through and beat them. So I got the urge to do that this weekend. Some of the dungeons are quite tricky, when conflated with the Wii-U's D-Pad. There were some imprecise moments where I was cursing at Darknuts, Bubbles, Wizzrobes as I was murdered over and over due to me not controlling Link well.

Still an excellent game and it was very satisfying to finally play through the first Zelda game.

41. Teslagrad (PS3)
42. Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess (PS3)
43. Year Walk (Wii U)


I beat three games this weekend! Two of them were excellent!

.....

Teslagrad is a challenging puzzle platformer with interesting obstacles and puzzles based around polarity. It starts out pretty easy, and the challenge increases gradually through the game (until it reaches a fever pitch with the last two bosses). It also rewards backtracking and exploration, and it builds both a world and basic plot line through subtle, understated storytelling. Finally, the game is beautifully animated, and the animation style reminded me of WayForward's outstanding A Boy and His Blob. It is only 3 - 4 hours long, but it packs quite a punch and never wears out its welcome. Accordingly, I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of puzzle platformers (or classic Metroid games).

.....

Monster (Probably) Stole My Princess is a PS Mini in which you play as The Duke - an obliviously arrogant vampire - who is trying to "rescue" a princess. The game has a lot of personality, but the gameplay is uninteresting. Basically, you defeat each of the game's monsters by jumping, double-jumping, and wall-jumping between different platforms. If you double-jump near the monster, you damage it, and if you damage it three times, you defeat it. You build combos and increase your score by never landing on the same platform twice. Beating the game is quite easy, but getting a high score on each level is quite chellenging. Unforuntely, I did not find the game so compelling that I need to revisit its levels more than a few times.

.....

Year Walk on the Wii U is a fabulous port of one of the very best iOS games. It is a very clever, first-person adventure game (similar to Myst) that is steeped in Swedish folkore. It is also exceptionally creepy, and I loved every minute of it. (I am going back to it tonight to unlock the rest of its secrets.) Moreover, the Wii U port make great use of the Wii U's tablet controller. My only complaint is the game's relatively short length; it took me a little less than two hours to beat it. It is really sticking with me, however, and I will be spending some more time with it tonight. (In other words, I spent $7 for a two hour game, but I certainly feel like I am getting my money's worth out of it.)

14. Child of Light (WiiU)

15. Thomas was Alone (Android)


I've had this on my phone for months and would just do a level or two when I got the urge. I enjoyed it quite a bit early on in the game and was drawn to play it frequently at least for the first half. The second half of the game I found less compelling; strangely enough I think it was because of the characters!

Those characters are all just rectangles on the screen, but still I felt an attachment to many of them as the game gave them personality. Game-play was fine, simple platforming for the most part with relatively simple puzzles scattered throughout.

I found the ending a little too open - as though the creators made it as vague as possible for the sake of it being an "artsy" game. I got this game for free on the Amazon App Store so I can say I got more than my money's worth, as it is one of the better games I've played on a phone.

53. 9:05 (PC)(Text Adventure)

I also beat 9:05. It's a browser-based text adventure that is quite short but has multiple endings, one of which I consider the "correct" ending and reveals the truth of what is actually going on. If you know what is actually going on, then the clues become all the more telling and noticeable, but until then it's unlikely you will stumble upon them as you probably won't know they are there to be looked at. Portions of the game are also completely skippable, such as eating breakfast, though there are several definite things you need to do to advance. The game is sure to tell you what these are though, so no worries there.

I played through for the "correct" ending and then went back through to fully explore everything else, including finding the ending in which I die. Unfortunately actually telling you how to do these things will likely ruin the game, but there is a bottleneck at the start that can be gone through without giving anything away: you have to shower before you can leave the house. What all you have to do to shower, I'll leave that up to you. But it must be done. Beyond that, you actually have more options than you realize, and you can go back at nearly any point short of getting an ending, so if you suddenly decide to change your tune at the last second, you're good.

It's a fun little exploration of the possibilities of text adventures. I liked it.
