When my husband bought himself a New Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter edition, he thought I might like to own one too. It was Tuesday 25th July when we decided to go for a New Nintendo 2DS XL that would be available on 28th July in Czech Republic. The specs are pretty much the same as New N3DS XL and it even uses the same software, but it is cheaper (around 180 USD, N3DS XL 240 USD) and doesn’t have 3D function. It’s not a big deal not playing games in 3D, because I wear dioptric glasses and thus I don’t seek for 3D. Don’t get me wrong you don’t need 3D glasses to play 3D games on New N3DS XL obviously. It’s just when I stare at a flat screen I want to see flat 2D content, seeing 3D makes my eyes hurt. What also worth mentioning that New N2DS XL includes AC adapter, New N3DS XL doesn’t.
The Inner World is a 2D point-and-click adventure game participated in a world named Asposia inside the globe. One of the life important source – air (here presented as wind) – is provided by 3 great wind fountains. But one after another went dry and only one is somehow functional. It’s enough to keep Asposia habitable, but what if it will go dry too? Is that the reason why the wind gods are mad at the Aspoians? There must be something smelly behind this all can you find out what?
Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes is an extraordinary point-and-click adventure created by Daedalic Entertainment GmbH – the creators of the award winning games “The Whispered World” and “Deponia”. They had made another adventure named Edna & Harvey before – it is called “The Breakout”. In contrast Harvey’s New Eyes’s protagonist isn’t Edna like in “The Breakout” but Lilli – her best friend. It all starts in a garden behind a monastery, where Lilli is trying to rake up leaves on the ground, and the narrator welcomes you to the game.
The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a brutal fast-paced action platformer. It’s gruesome, violent and full of action. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile was originally released in 2011 on Xbox 360. From 12 May, 2017 it’s upgraded version is available on STEAM. The art style is characteristic for Ska Studios. I played their souls-like game Salt and Sanctuary before The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and the art style is identical. No shame. It’s still unique and remarkable and what’s more important it fits the game styles their making.
Candle is a beautiful 2D point-and-click adventure. It has very original hand-painted graphic and professional audio. The story is full of human errors and their corrections. It’s about how too much ambitions and greed caused destruction of a sophisticated civilization and in an effort to cut an end to violence, the shamans have created a disaster. In order to save the world from fifth destruction Teku has to save his tribe’s shaman, solve challenging puzzles, defeat Wakchas and reveal the truth.
Just Ignore Them is a short pixel-graphic point-and-click adventure with slightly horror atmosphere. It has multiple endings and they’re based on your choices. To be exact a good one and a bad one. To achieve the good one, you have to behave well. To play the bad one, just kill someone when you have the chance. So there’s no science. What I really like is how open and uncensored are the dialogs between two main characters. Yes, Just Ignore Them warns you in the beginning that it contains violence, strong language and disturbing graphic. But c’mon pixelated disturbing graphic doesn’t even count. It’s pixelated… Even though Just Ignore Them managed to stay creepy and messed-up in the right way.
