Your mission is to organise the tribloos to distribute labour efficiently – which from the word GO is a great set-up for a game and far more interesting than “shoot stuff.” In order to succeed, you’ll need to assign workers to collect resources, build houses, sawmills and structures, remove obstacles and to keep staff in the various positions. You’ll be given a list of goals in each level and must complete them within a time limit.
You move your tribloo workers by clicking an icon above a building or above resources. You can send numerous tibloos to one task to make the work go quicker, but masters in management will tell you that the best bet is to spread the workers around between tasks.
Tribloos 2 is like a cute, simple and fun management course, but with cute critters instead of people. You quickly learn the nitty gritty of getting work done on time.
Mind you, that descrition sounds a bit boring and Tribloos 2 is an extremely fun game which never dulls. Rather, this game is a master in video game design. It’s so good it even makes me enjoy time management.
The Tribloos 2 is a simulation game in which all the pieces come together to make an utterly brilliant game. It’s also long, with over 100 levels.
I was surprised by exactly how good The Tribloos 2 is. Pick up a copy today. Trust me, it will not disappoint.
In Nitrome’s new arcade game Plunger, you play as a little face with massive extendo-plunger appendages. You move along the grid using [WASD], but instead of simply walking, you fire your Go-Go-Gadget arms and legs, which zoom across the grid and stick to a wall, to which you are then pulled.
Your mission in Plunger is to reach and connect to every node on a level while avoiding enemies and enemy nodes, which will kill you.
Enemies aren’t the only things that will do you injury. So will parts of the environment that may fire at you or pull you in and gobble you up.
Helping you on your way are pick-ups, including a lightning bolt that turns you electric, letting you reek revenge on your enemies.
Plunger is basic title, but it’s an absolutely adorable one too. You’ll be grinning from ear to ear thanks to the super-cuteness of the game’s design. Plunger is one of the best games for kids I’ve played in a while too thanks to that super cuteness and also the simple puzzle nature of the game (which won’t really tax your brain but will at least have you thinking).
Overall: Plunger achieves a well-earned score of 4 out of 5.
Pinball is nearly 100 years old, but it’s never really seemed that old thanks to new designs and innovations to the game that happen every now and again.
One team to help the continual development of Pinball is Paladin Studios, who new game Momonga Pinball Adventures takes the basic premise of pinball and turns it into an adventure. It’s not just any old adventure though—it’s an emotional story brought to life with beautiful art.
Owls have taken the tranquil village Momonga and turned it to ashes, kidnapping the inhabitants and flying off. Only one of the Momongas survived the attack, Momo, but he’s scarred from top to bottom. With the help of a lonely Lorekeeper who found him, the Momonga will heal and journey on an adventure to save his people.
Not a bad story for pinball, ay
As for the traditional pinball game part, theres are flippers, objects to bump into, other objects to hit around and it all takes place in an open environment. The open world allows you to explore the land, find treasure, destroy enemies and even fly.
The gameplay here is truly unique and enjoyable, and even for those who don’t generally enjoy pinball games, the beautiful story that takes place around the pinball action offers charm and entertainment.
My favourite thing about Momonga Pinball is the way in which in reinvents such an old game. It’s a wonderful thing for traditional pinball fans, and the art and story are a brilliant bonus on top.
