The Vault

SonicLover*tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik* *tik-tik-tik-tik-tik-tik* *tik-tik-tik-tik* ...Nuts! I think I overshot it again. Now I'll ha... oh, hey! I didn't see you there. It's not what it looks like, I'm not trying to break into The Vault. I'm... uh... I'm fixing it! Yes, Jay asked me to fix the lock mechanism. It's... er.. it's been making this weird grinding noise, and I'm using this stethoscope to try to localize it. The problem is that the Vault's filled with games with really catchy soundtracks, and every time I try to listen for the noise, one of those earworms gets stuck in my head and I can't focus. I'll never be able to crack... fix the lock at this rate. Here are the three games that've been giving me the most grief:

  • KlikwerkKlikwerk - This rhythm game from Bart Bonte is a gem from about a year and a half ago. Icons will appear in time to the rhythm, and you'll have to point, click, drag and drop, or hit thye [spacebar] to get rid of each one. It's not exactly recommended for someone used to a laptop trackpad, but still quite playable. You may find yourself persevering and playing over and over mainly for the catchy song. Po-po-po-point, click click click po-po-po-point, click click click po-po-po-point, click click click...
  • Dot Action 2Dot Action 2 - A nice retro platformer from Japanese developer OffGao, even more retro than most. It's all about jumping on white dots, avoiding yellow dots or passing through them with the help of red dots, swimming through gray dots, and above all collecting blue dots. Collect all the blue dots to finish each level. It's got tons of levels, and while it takes a while to get hard, it gets really hard when it does. Also, that chiptune soundtrack will be in your head for days to come. I think I keep coming back to play this one purely for the music. Dee-dah-dee-dadalee-dah-dee, dee-dah-dee-dadalee-dah-doo...
  • Mass AttackMass Attack - A brainteasing puzzler by kbaum games about balancing a set of scales. Hold the mouse button down to create a weight; the longer you hold, the heavier the weight is. It takes a lot of skill to make the weight just right to balance the scales exactly, but that gong you hear when you do is just about the best sound in the world. Plus, the music that accompanies the whole thing is just perfect for a brainteaser like this one. It's a good snack-break game, even if I've never been able to clear Level 7. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-dah-doo, daddle-a-doo, daddle-a-doo, daddle-a-doo...

As per usual, comments about the weekly feature itself can go here, but comments about the games themselves should go on their respective review pages. Thank you for that, and go rediscover some good games... oh, and can one of you please go ask Jay to give me the Vault's combination? It'll be a lot easier to fix if I can get inside it. Thank you!
