guardian of the rose

A small but epic kickstarter project caught my attention this week so I’ve decide to bring it to you. Guardians of the Rose is a beautiful 2d 16 bit game made by Pixel x Pixel Game inspired by old school classic like Zelda & Gauntlet. It’s integrate RPG element of the elder scroll series while having a polish 16bit style.



The illegal art of Witchcraft has tainted the Royal Guard and brought ruin upon the kingdom.  A small group of the Royal Guard has slaughtered the King’s family and taken control of the kingdom.  It is now up to you and a small group of members of the Royal Guard that calls themselves the Guardians of the Rose to save the kingdom.  Your small band of allies has to work together in secret to cause a revolution in the kingdom.  One slip up and you will be on the run from the Royal Guard and wanted by relentless bounty hunters.

The boy - guardian of the rose

And you, a boy with no magical ability, are left with the task to save the kingdom.  Will you choose to taint yourself with witchcraft or will you choose to search out legendary magical items to use in your struggle to save the kingdom?  Explore the Unfellable Forest while avoiding being trampled by Sand Giants and Unfellable Beasts.  Fight off sea serpents and other creatures of the deep that are terrorizing sea port towns.  Venture into the snow-ridden Mountain Lands and discover hidden temples in the wild forests.

Game Feature

I can’t wait to see the game in action. With an open ended world to explore, multiple way to complete game and alternate ending, it’s looks like it will have a lot of replay value. Transport yourself in a grandiose fight of magic vs witchcraft.

The cliff Fighting

The kickstarter projet started recently and is only missing 5000$ to hit its goal. Hopefully we can all help a bit. So if you like what you see pledge and share it to your friends.

I recently wrote about the candy jam and obnoxious use of a trademark on the word candy. I could help it when I found more goodies from the candy jam. I hope you like them!

You are a little girl making her way through dark passageways. It’s so dark, in fact, that you can’t see unless you light a match. But YOU ONLY GET ONE per level!


Match girl is a game made by DDRKirby and xellaya’s in the Ludum Dare. I’m really impress with the result that game could be a great game on device where you could unlock level with in app purchase or something.

The game can be beat in a few minute it’s took me 7 minutes to beat it with 3 death and 4 retry. I took me less time to beat it than to write about it 😉

After playing to much Hack slash n loot I’ve decided looking for some game with a medieval feel. Here what I’ve found for you


You only get one button in GRAIL make good use of it. Timing your move and your attack is everything in this game, you go through a dungeon filled with trap, pit and skeleton.


Playing GRAIL can be really frustrating, you sometime don’t jump at the right time, your not near enough an enemy and miss it, the enemy don’t. I got tired after awhile but go for it and give it a try. You must give Paul credit though, for crafting a game like that in only 48 hr.

Heroes of Steel – A grim adventure for a Tactical RPG

Heroes of Steel is a old style turn-based tactics RPG in which you lead a group of four unique characters. You chose your characters and lead them to epic glory through the game well crafted story.

I’ve just installed the game. At first you get to choose your heroes you can change there classes in some cases but you need to pay to unlock the other classes. You end up in a dungeon and you need to escape out, the wizard already know a secret tunnel but you got to fight your way through the guard.

Moving can feel pain at the beginning specially when you are not in combat but once you understand how to send your character at the right place with a double tap then hold your golden. Combat are turn base you get to either start before or after the enemies. You play all your character together and  the enemies attack all at the same time which makes doing a surprise attack (or not getting surprise) super important.

The game is free but you need to pay if you want further episode after the demo, you have in app purchase to buy new classes.

Check out the teaser video it seems to be a very cool game.

This game is available on mobile device but not out yet on pc (may 2014).

Have fun both game are free.

Last post on Star War & Star Trek inspired me to write another post on some space games that were sitting in my to review list. They may be not has “Grandiose” has KOTOR or inventive has Star Trek: Trexels but they definitely deserve a look.

Mighty Tactical Shooter: Plan your move

Gradius and tactical space battle meet together in the nicely done indies games Mighty Tactical Shooter. From the game info quote : “Make your way through multiple levels across four distinct themed chapters. Face challenges that wouldn’t be possible in any other type of shooter. Adopt new skills and tactics as the ship repairs, enemies diversify and the plot unfolds. A 2D side scrolling arcade shoot ‘em up, but turn based.” Like they say at the end : It’s about tactics, not reflex. Your move.


It may not have speed of Gradius but fi you want a different take on tactics and story instead of a standard “shoot’em up” will want to definitely give it a try.

Halfway: A Sci-fi Jagged Alliance

An alien force has invaded your spaceship and your crew need to throught the hallway of it to get rid of these nasty alien. That turn-based tactical strategy draw a lot of turn base fight from a old game I’ve played called Jagged Alliance on PC. Each character has its own tactical abilities, so they will all have to attack, defend, move, use items, and reload to stay alive during battles.


Halfway will be heading to tablets later this year after its initial desktop release.

Camp Keepalive

Camp Keepalive is a turn-based strategy game that explores the horror movie genre but in a video game. Translating horror movie to video game never really hit the spot (that for almost for any movie for that matter), most of them didn’t manage to really bring back the horror spirit of the original movies.
KillScreen did a really nice review about that game and how Camp Keepalive manage to embrace the horror “movie” genre successfully.

I’ve talked and reviewed Lone Survivor awhile ago and it seems that the game made a come back on the PlayStation store yesterday (25th of September) in Europe and is coming to the us in the upcoming week (or two according to this source).

Curve Studios  worked really hard to port the wonderful side-scrolling horror game to Playstation.

It is not the old game it has some additional content, hence the “Director’s Cut” in the name. The new game will have new lighting system, new dialogue, over 20 new items, brand-new endings, and plenty more.

The game will available for PS3 and vita. This version will also be ported for pc and mac on steam but no release date was given. (source: EuroGamer)

P.S: Funny story, my spell checker want to change Lone survivor to Loan Survivor that would be a very funny title for a game! no ?
