Triqui’s Picks #4

This week I am featuring 7 games. I found other really interesting ones, but they were simply too wide… 800×600 or even more.

Games with this size cannot be published on Facebook, and since I am porting triqui.com on Facebook, I won’t consider them, until Facebook raises the maximum width allowed for an application.

Here they are:

Running free: Interesting stick platform game with a “Fancy pants” feeling… you just have to run and jump.

What I liked: the “just one more try” feeling

Programming difficulty: There’s no physics, just some hit test I presume…. 2/5

Calculate Genius: This is a “brain” game with a lot of minigames to test your ability to calculate.

What I liked: considering myself a genius, I love these kind of games, just to prove I am smarter than you :)

Programming difficulty: each minigame is quite easy, but there are a lot of them… and they are very well designed 3/5

Pixel Vader: Yessss, a good shoot’em up with powerups and achievements. Blasting away aliens is always fun.

What I liked: the overall feeling

Programming difficulty: collisions, powerups, alien waves… 4/5

Bubba Time: It’s not a complete game at the moment, but just a demo. Great platform game with a lot of features, from creating your own platforms by building/removing blocks to rewinding the time to avoid enemies

What I liked: Great concept

Programming difficulty: a good platform is always difficult… 5/5

Green Bomber: Remake of one of the oldest game ever (destroy buildings with your plane) with a phyisics twist and a campaign environment. A great one-button game.

What I liked: I love original physics games

Programming difficulty: Just some Box2d 2/5

Hans Coldy and Emma Qualdy: Interesting platform, you are something like a “spiked sponge” and must collect coins and avoid enemies saving its mate through 42 levels. You can climb or hang to some walls thanks to your spikes

What I liked: The idea and the pixel graphics

Programming difficulty: a good platform is always difficult. 4/5

Unsucceful Test: I think the author meant “unsuccessful”… you are a mad doctor trying to make an antidote for his unsuccessfule experiment. Great physics

What I liked: The concept and the different shapes the doctor can have, each one with its features

Programming difficulty: Quite hard. 5/5
