This looks interesting and I really like the style. I hope there will be more to show of Lighthouse Games Studio´s Tiny Tim’s Tremendous Tank soon. Then they will most probably not keep it restricted to shooting cute little animals to bloody bits.
I like the fact that there is no Avatar in the game title, I do suspect though that it might be an avatar on the bike in the video. I like games that use Avatars especially when they are good enough to not use them in the title. Looking forward to giving this game a go!
Seizonrenda from Inland Studios is heading to Xbox Live Indie Games. I like the simple planet level setting and the graphics seem to be on a high technical niveau, maybe a bit boring. I will give this game a try at least, there is at least potential.
These jumping games are in – but for a platform like Windows Phone 7 they seem to be perfect. Manouvering a character to hit small platforms using the tilt controls of a phone seemed near impossible to me though. I´m impressed with the video above showing “A Beanstalk Tale” from DiNoGames – not only has it quite good graphics for a small indie developer, it also shows how well the tilt controls work. That´s actually a game I would buy.
The new Mommy´s Best Games title Explosionade is nearing and today a trailer was released for it. Have a look at the nice shooting action that the trailer promises. They already have shown their nack for shooters with Weapon of Choice, so make sure to check Explosionade out once it hits the marketplace.
Windows Phone 7 is not yet available – so if you want to give gamers a shot at trying your game you have to use a different platform. Conveniently ck7studios choose Silverlight and that means most probably you can give their upcoming WP7 game a try here.
The demo got 5 levels, instead of touching your screen you will have to use the mouse. Gives you a good idea of how it works though … nice little game that would be perfect for some easy mobile gaming.
I never played the original Old School Racer, but the new title looks like platformer/racer mix – neat, I´m gonna check that one out when it comes out soon (as the trailer says).
Figment is certainly a game with style. It takes place inside a child’s imagination, where the player takes control of one (or two, in cooperative mode) guardian (who is actually one of the child’s toys). The goal is to rescue the child, who has been kidnapped by dark, dreamlike creatures. The story is not expounded upon beyond this, but for a game like Figment that might be better. The atmosphere is complemented by the dark style and soft colors of the game’s world. Figment is also a solid combination of action and platforming, but isn’t without its few quirks.

If you don´t have the time to create ultra polished textures or highly refined 3D models it´s hard to create a lovable look for a video game. But this trailer still managed it. I don´t know anything about the gameplay and I´m not even sure what we see there is ingame graphics, but my guess is, that you have to bring back happyness to the world and color it by doing so. Definately looking forward to it – should come to XBLIG this year.
