Recommendation for Russ: http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/ ... sp?c=73944

I'm only a couple of levels in as I only started it this morning but so far it's quite pretty and good fun.

Checking, thank you.

I loved the art style, thought it was beautiful and creepy, the music added to the atmosphere, the main character had a fabulous little look (girl in a yellow raincoat), and I liked the running animation for some reason, lots of character throughout. One zoom out was astonishing good. The whole boat premise and the rocking levels was fab. The chapter select screen is real nice.

Downsides:

More INSIDE than LIMBO so no real challenge.
I found it a little too dark. Literally too dark, so much so that I had to turn the brightness slider up to max.
Zero death animations. LIMBO & INSIDE both had great deaths.
A little clunky feeling and button layout. The "use" and "grab" button could and should have been on the same button.
Some poor checkpoints.
It lacks the polish and quality of INSIDE.
Some dodgy camera angles.
The whole boat premise and the rocking levels was never really used. Timing a jump onto a gently swinging platform, check. Anything else? Nope.
No puzzles of any kind really. It's daft. Grab a key and open a lock is as good as it gets which is so lazy it's insulting.

But here's the real kicker: it's FAR FAR too short. 2 hours max. There's collectibles scatters about but no reason to get them. INSIDE had a secret ending and optional puzzles that you could find off the beaten track. None here. £16 for 2 hours is ridiculous for this type of game when INSIDE exists.

So it's goodish and worth playing but only when it's dirt dirt cheap.

Seriously, play INSIDE it's fucking amazing.

See, because I don't have much time to play two hours is attractive to me.

Firewatch was the same price for about four hours and it was glorious.

In that case, get INSIDE. It's only fractionally longer but much much better. Seriously, it's outstanding with an ending section that's just nuts.

Only managed to get out with two survivors (Mike and Emily) but really enjoyed this. A mixture of Resident Evil and a Telltale game.

27. Assassins Creed: Syndicate: I haven't touched an AC game since giving up on the original one after only a couple of hours way back in the day so I came to this pretty clean and, frankly, I fucking loved it. It still has issues with the controls at certain times which can be frustrating but you learn to live with and work round those pretty quickly. It's also slightly repetitive in that way only modern open world games can be but I don't really mind that as long as I don't play many of them in a short period. Those quibbles aside it's just flat out great fun; stalking and stealthily murdering a load of dudes never really gets old and with the grappling hook they've added for this game a lot of the set pieces basically turn into Batman Arkham style encounters which I'm absolutely fine with. The plot's interesting enough (although all the meta stuff goes completely over my head as I've no idea what's going on with the wider story) and most of the characters are well written and engaging. So, yeah, good stuff all round.

That's a puzzle game (is there a better name for this genre? Things like Dizzy and stuff, where you pick up item A to use with object B) that's only short.

I currently have Day of the Tentacle on the go, but I find it difficult to remember when I was sometimes.

Arr, there's more game there, to which I will return at some point, but I mainly wanted to move on to the phantom pain.

Althought the intro to that hasn't exactly done much more than irritate me.

1) The Binding Of Isaac - Rebirth+

Finished all nine bosses with all fourteen characters on hard level. Some of it was utterly maddening, but at least it's done now. Still got 24 of the 339 achievements left to get, but I'm not too concerned about getting those as I've just had to do a three-hour run just to unlock one of them, with the last thirty minutes as a character that can be killed in one hit, which was rather tense. 8)

Finally. Still my one completion for the year, but pleased to finally 100% it. Some of the achievements were a bit of a nightmare though, plus beating the new boss with all the characters on hard level took a long time - beating it with Keeper took me over 300 attempts and 99% of those I didn't even reach it.

Faraway: Brilliant little 'escape' style puzzle game for iOS/Android that has you working through 18 levels of increasing complexity manipulating strange machines and deciphering codes to reach the exit. The art style is simple but effective (putting me in mind a bit of of stuff like The Talos Principle and The Witness) and the puzzles are logical to a fault. Highly recommended, especially for Russ given his recent proclivity.

I did download it, I'm up to level 6 I think.

That Dreamcage Escape by the same people as Faraway seems even nicer by the way. Perhaps slightly easier though.

I actually gave it a shot and uninstalled it over lunch time because I thought it was pretty clunky and nowhere near as logical in it's puzzles.

29. Psychonauts: Rhombus of Ruin: as is seemingly typical of most PSVR games this was short (about two hours) and pretty easy in terms of the puzzles but, as is also typical, it's a very compelling and fun experience. It's one of the nicest looking PSVR games I've played I'd say and it's entertaining enough that, submerged in the headset, I didn't notice the passage of time at all until I finished it. It also had probably one of the best setups I've come across in terms of giving an in-universe excuse for why you can't move around or interact directly with the stuff you're looking at which was a nice touch. So, yeah, very highly recommended if you're a Psychonauts fan or you see it on sale or you just don't care about the slightly high price tag.

What made me give up on the game were the ink ribbons. I hate when games insult my free time.
