Space Expedition: Classic Adventure Review

Space Expedition: Classic Adventure is an utterly entertaining, unique and atmospheric game. It’s one of those games where you travel back and forth, gathering new items that allow you to reexplore previously visited areas. And that is probably the worst game description I’ll ever pen in my life. It’s not dissimilar to Metroid. But to call it a Metroid clone would be grossly unfair. It’s a dark, surprising, and even disturbing adventure, a puzzle platformer with tons of areas to explore.

A Classic Video Game Resurrected: Q*bert Rebooted

Q*Bert Reboted

B*Bert rebooted offers both the classic game itself and Q*bert: Rebooted. Both are similar, you jump on blocks and they change colour. Change the colour of all the blocks and the level’s complete. Simple, pure, retro goodness. Through in a few enemies and you’ve got all the complexity you need. Sadly, the classic version here isn’t quite as good as the original (but really, the original of anything is always the best, right?). Still, the gameplay is excellent and it definitely will put a smile on the face of nostalgic old gamers like me.

20+ Games Like Shovel Knight

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.

Magnetic by Nature | Video Game Design School Reviews

The latest game from University of Utah Arts and Engineering degree students is Magnetic by Nature, in which players take on the role of a robot who must move through levels using magnetic powers.

Magnetic-by-Nature--Video-Game-Design-School-Reviews

The first thing to strike us about Magnetic by Nature is the intuitive feel to the controls. Controls are, of course, one of the most important elements of video game design, so it says much to University of Utah’s credit that its students have created so high a quality control scheme.

With the XBLIG version of the game you get about an hour to an hour and a half of gaming. In that time you’ll be exposed to many different playstyles. Levels range from physics puzzles to platforming to fighting, hence touching on a truly diverse range of genres.  In all play-styles you’ll be madly trying to control your robot character, who zooms through levels at breathtaking speed.

At times, the movement can feel somewhat out of control. There are times when hazardous elements of the environment move too fast, making success more a case of luck than skill. In one level a beam of light— that kills you in one touch—moves much too fast and invariably leads to frustrating deaths. Elements like this show a slight lack of polish (or perhaps a lack of time). The good news in this respect is that the game’s developers are apparently aware of the issues and are making efforts to correct the issues.

Even without the few fixes the team are making, there is a great deal about Magnetic by Nature that does University of Utah’s Arts and Engineering department proud. The game is good fun, has solid controls and the majority of the key ingredients of game design have been created professionally.  This is one of the best student games we have played here at GamePlayersReview, a great representation of the work being done at University of Utah.
