Today two side-scroller on PC that are pretty cool, review say that they are Metroid like but I don’t see it.


Spud’s Quest

Spud’s Quest mixes up the puzzle and platform sequences quite well: some require speaking to people, others are Sokoban-like (pushing boxes and other items), and several require finding and dropping the necessary item somewhere specific to advance. Some areas require gaining new abilities to progress, as well, a trope Metroid fans should be all too familiar with. Enemies aren’t annoyingly tough, and you have unlimited, short-ranged ammo to dispose of them.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City

As an action platformer with a heavy dose of exploration, Valdis Story does this aspect of its job well. There are plenty of enemies to dismantle and treasure chests to unlock throughout the levels, so progression tends to move at a decent and engaging pace. The normal enemies don’t pose too much of a threat. You’ll have to pay attention while fighting groups, but single foes are dispatched easily enough. These fights are best used to learn the ins and outs of combat, how to use the dash mechanic, and discover the uses of your magic spells.

A bit of “Nestalgia”

I’m having a bit of nostalgia right now with that video of all nes games screen, my god most of the time the sound is awful but I just love when it hit a game I know / played. Note it’s all in alphabetical order and it almost 3hr.

Notable one Castlevania at 0:22:38, Dragon Warrior/Quest 0:40:25, Final Fantasy 0:49:04, Legend of Zelda 1:22:45,Mega man 1:30:01, Metroid 1:32:00 and our favorite plumber at 2:19:55)

I never realized that they were so many baseball game…

Revamped ‘Dragon Fantasy’

Originally launched way back in August of 2011, Dragon Fantasy is a 8-bit fantasy “à la” Dragon quest. They recently made a revamp of the game and turn those old school 8-bit graphic into better 16-bit graphic, new audio, achievement and new dungeon.

If this sounds like the type of game you’d like to add to your iOS device of choice, and you enjoy questing in the olde style of 8-bit gaming, you can download it from the App Store for $7.99 / £5.49

Note that a sequel is coming to iOs soon too 🙂

Space chick

Have you ever felt the need of going to space and save cuties, well if it’s the case Space chick is for you. Space chick is a space (Duh!) game where your heroes jump from planet to planet using their gravity  (like in Angry bird space) and save chick stuck on asteroid and other planet. Beware of monster that will try to knock you off and grab your chick for themselves.

The gravity system makes even this simple platforming technique a lot more interesting. One-tap controls for jumping also make Space Chicks an easily accessible title.

Asslevania: Symphony of the Butt has a bit of not-work safe language and graphic images, but if you’re looking for a brutal Castlevania-like, whip-slinging, cross-flinging platformer for free, here you go!

Note that a sequel is coming to where you play has Alucard and you can go through green and blue doors with him.
