I Broke the timeI'll open this time with a confession: I really like puzzle games, mainly those that have simple idea and simple rules, and creates complex puzzles out of them. So when I found Klocki, by Maciej Targoni (aka Rainbow Train), I felt like I found a fortune.

A goody lifeYou have only a few in-game days to create your life and a foundation for your future family. Your career choice now will affect your descendant's aptitude for athletics, academics, and creativity later. After your character dies, the "value" of their life will be analysed and you will start the game over, with improved stats and wealth. This concept, which sets A Goody Life apart from other simulation games, is similar to the game Viktor the Nth. Interestingly, A Goody Life incorporates investing in antiques, and Intelligence and Creativity can be raised by using The Internet.

I Broke the timeI woke up today with a strange feeling. I looked in the phone and saw it is Wednesday. I made my coffee, looked at the calendar and saw it is Tuesday, opened the radio and listened to Friday's evening news. But I started suspecting when I got the Sunday's newspaper. Nobody gives Sunday's newspaper at Thursday, or was it Monday?

Tinker Island

SatoriIf Kairosoft ever made a version of Gilligan's Island it would look a lot like Tinker Island, the free survival crafting role-playing game from Tricky Totem with in-app purchases. When you and your intrepid crew are stranded on a tropical island you'll have to use all your skills to survive, try to get back home, and solve the mystery of just what's going on here in the process. Gather resources, build and upgrade buildings, stave off hunger, craft tools and buffing items, fend off the local wildlife, improve your party's skills and solve puzzles and logic problems, all while advancing the plot with choose-your-own-adventure format multiple-guess choices that meaningfully affect how the each game will take shape.

RulloWhile making my way through the net, looking for flash games to play, I've found this little gem. The game Rullo by Elihu Gideon and developed by Crescentyr, is one of those games that follow the concept of simple rules, but challenging game.

Riddle Transfer 2After ten years and seven instalments the artist formerly known as Jonbro wraps up the point-and-click 'Riddle' saga with the immensely enjoyable Riddle Transfer 2. Be warned that there are plot spoilers ahead but come on, seriously the series is ten years old. That's like me telling you Brad Pitt and Ed Norton were the same person. You should already know this stuff.

Monkey Happy 1-4"Hey Hey they're the MONKEYS!!" OK maybe it's just me but I love these little guys. There's something inherently playful and mischievous about them that makes me smile. Seeing that PencilKids had made yet another installment had me immediately...um postponing some work I need to be doing and diving into the hijinks.

The Soul Stone EscapeSo often a journey begins with a story. A few simple words can carry you on an adventure as great as any begun with a single step. This fact is the starting point of Esklavos' new game The Soul Stone Escape. In his characteristic style, the artwork flows with the somewhat dreamlike quality of the story. There may be ogres and snakes and pits but there is never a sense of danger, only of wonder. This game, and the story it contains embraces the idea of magic as we knew it in childhood.

None of that should imply that there are not puzzles to solve or clues to be found. There are several scenes and to advance from one to another requires completing certain puzzles and collecting particular items. In the past, many Esklavos games have featured a sort of map which opened various areas to the player. There is no map in Soul Stone. In fact there are fewer scenes (four) than you may be accustomed to seeing but each one is rich in content. Also by taking away the ability to jump from one location to another the space has a more linear quality, everything feels more connected.

This game falls squarely in the point and click genre. Simple to navigate and control with everything right there on the screen. There's really nothing to get in the way of just enjoying playing.

Gatamari Escape 26 - PortraitsWe're in the second half of July, and it's just the first one this year. But it's easy to forgive, because Escape 26 is almost as huge as Robamimi's monumental Gargoyles, and I think the most difficult one in 2016. We have to gather all of our mental strength to get through the puzzles. To tell the truth, I haven't managed to solve all the riddles by myself, but I'm a stupidly unpatient person, and You probably will be able to get out the room(s).

IMAGINARY FRIENDSOnce upon a time there was a lonely little girl. The story that follows those words is at the heart of Imaginary Friends created by Mannytsu. Sometimes poignant, at other times tense and a bit shocking the player follows the internal struggle of a friendless 13-year-old girl.

Caught by a LureCreated for the International Love Ultimatum, Caught by a Lure is an unconventional examination of a condition most of us have experienced. With only a month to work, MakioKuta and Racheal created a short visual novel centered on the theme of romance. The approach they took is somewhat non-traditional. It isn't of the 'fairy-tale' variety many of us think of when imagining that subject. In fact rather than focusing on the joy of romance, the story asks an essential question:
Do you love me or the idea of loving me?
