This week in reviews you may have missed we have two Playstation Mini reviews and an Xbox Live Indie reviews. They aren't the biggest titles in the world and they do not get much attention but the ones that deserve it tend to shine. So are any of these titles the next I Made a Game With Zombies In It? Find out in this weeks, "You may have missed."
You'd think even before starting up an Xbox 360 indie title rated a full 3/3 in sex, violence and mature content, that you would know what you're in for. You could imagine my surprise then, at finding a game which much like my own life, lacks any sex, features minimal violence, and contains nothing even remotely resembling maturity. Upon starting in this misleadingly-rated game, you are greeted with an introduction consisting of four or five still images with zero text, depicting an apparently evil CEO industrializing and polluting the world. Following that, you're thrown into a completely unrelated four player dual-joystick shooter in which gun-toting flying blob things exist solely to shoot hoards of candy out of the sky.
Enigmo is a Playstation Mini that right away grabs your attention with it's game play reminiscent of The Incredible Machine. The goal is to launch different types of liquid from the faucet into jars. You accomplish this by placing different pieces onto the level in the path of the dripping water. Some objects are simple platforms that slide the water in whatever arc you have it tilted. Then you have other kind of objects like trampolines for the water to bounce at different velocities.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a hotel manager? Yeah… me neither. However, if you want an interesting timewaster game for PSN, look no further than this PS3 Mini developed by Beatshapers. You will be serving coffee and handing out keys in no time on the PlayStation 3 or PSP.
