It’s time for Free Games Friday, ignoring that this is being posted very early Saturday morning. Today I have three (!) games for your enjoyment.
I’m kind of cheating on this first game, because it’s actually a two for one. Enough Plumbers is a puzzle platformer that pays homage to everyone’s favourite princess saving plumber. In this game however, any time you touch a coin you spawn a new plumber, until eventually the screen is filled with them. Using these various bodies, you have to navigate the various challenges, reaching the flag. It’s extremely fun and a lot harder than it sounds! You can find the first game here, and the recently released sequel, Enough Plumbers 2, is right here.
Speaking of princesses….
Sorry Mario Bros. takes the concept and flips it on it’s head, giving the damsel in distress the ability to jump, and thus allowing herself to rescue herself. Recreating three of the original Super Mario Bros. levels, this time you play them in reverse. While the game isn’t perfect (it was created over the course of two weeks), it’s a fun experiment in taking old games and flipping them on their head, which has become almost a genre in itself. This particular game can be found here.
Finally, how’s your math skill?
This final game doesn’t really relate to the other games, but it’s just too good for me to not post as soon as I possibly can. In this game, named The High Road, you play as a janitor. The place where you work (I haven’t beaten the game yet so I don’t know very much), which appears to be some form of insurance agency, has been devastated on the inside. You travel through the building, trying to determine what happened (while cleaning up some of the mess along the way). Featuring a cast of fairly interesting characters, and a math based (yes, you read that right) combat system, this is an extremely interesting and fresh take on the RPG genre. If you’re a fan of RPG games, then you should enjoy this one, even with it’s strange and unusual combat system. You can download the game here.
That’s all for this week folks, tune in next week, where I’ll hopefully be on time.
