October 30, 2014 // 0 Comments

Deep Loot

Deep Loot is a new Android based rogue-like that sends you off scuba-diving for loot.

Screencheat

In Screencheat everyone is invisible. Weird, huh? Surely being invisible would be a huge problem. What it means is that you have o watch your opponent’s screen to know where they are, while you control yourself.

If you’re a fan of the old-school FPS games like Perfect Dark / Goldeneye and any other shooter that Rare made before they went down the crapper, then you’re going to love Screencheat. The screen is split for each player and the controls are familiar and intuitive.

Shovel Knight

The best indie game of 2014. Shovel Knight journeys across the land beating the heck out of all who stand in his way (with his favourite shovel, naturally) making his way to Tower of Fate to serve justice to the evil Order of No Quarter.

Despite its seemingly simplistic premise, there’s a heck of a lot going on in Shovel Knight. The stages are deep with tons of things to explore and there are many secrets to be found. This will definitely remind you of the games you played as a kid, with levels that seem to have jumped from Mega Man or Mario.
