XBL Indies: bricks4ever Review

Would you like some cake?...There's cocain in it! Wait, I meant...raisins. (extra points if you get that reference)

bricks4ever is one of the numerous Breakout-type games that can be found on the XBL Indie Games marketplace. With that said, I believe that it’s one of the best Breakout clones available on XBL Indies, if not the best. I’m not saying it’s perfect by any means, but what game is perfect?

Podcast: DF #72: We Go Gay For Gay Tony

Another episode of Distributed Failure is here for even more listening displeasure. This week's episode features a heavy dose of XBL Indie discussion (better get used to it) and a decent amount of gaming news.

XBL Indies: Retro One - Part 2 Review

Retro One - Part 2 is essentially what Retro One (Part 1) should have been...

Retro One – Part 2 is not a sequel to Retro One; it is simply a remake of the original game, with new ships, levels, and an added co-op mode.

I found the visuals appealing at first, but they soon became rather boring, which seems to be a common theme for this game. Fading Memories starts off with an interesting idea, but its repetitive nature brings the game down almost immediately.

XBL Indies: Retro One Review

This is pretty much the entire game...just change the background color and you've got a new level.

Retro One is a 2-D side-scrolling shooter similar to classics like R-Type and Gradius. While the fundamental design behind Retro One is that of a sub-genre I love; the team at RetroCoders fails to deliver a memorable experience.
