You Are Games

Reader ReviewThe following is a selection of favorite games compiled and reviewed by JIG community member, Cornelius. It is also one of the winning entries from our previous call for submissions for community favorites, for which Cornelius will receive some fabulous prizes of his choosing. Thanks to everyone who shared their favorites with us! Look for more community favorites in the coming weeks.

  • Z-TypeZ-Type - Nothing blends the fast-paced world of blowing up invading ships with typing like Z-Type, a shooter from Dominic Szablewski. Wave after wave of enemies approach you while you attempt to keep them at bay using nothing more than your WPM. Also, this game quite possibly could have the simplest instructions ever: "Type to Shoot!" Average ships require average words, larger ships are dispatched using a much broader vernacular and incoming missiles are destroyed with merely a single letter. Making your way through the standard game is fairly simple, especially for the skilled typist. For a real challenge, try the "Expert" mode and see just how long you can survive!
  • Fantastic ContraptionFantastic Contraption - Move a ball. Using wheels and sticks. That's all you need to do. Oh, did I mention you need to get it up a hill, over a wall, and across a gap with limited space to build your "contraption?" If you've ever had one of those moments where you thought it would be fun and cool to build a complex machine to perform a simple job (and honestly, who hasn't?), then this is for you. Play through 21 brain-straining levels and see just how far your imagination can go!
  • Treasure AdventureTreasure Adventure Game - Treasure hunters beware! Prepare to be immersed into a massive platformer filled with nearly endless discovery. Robit Studios gives us Treasure Adventure, an epic open-world side-scroller where you travel from land to land in search of wonder and hats. Explore hazardous caves. Journey high into the trees. Uncover secret passageways. Talk to your grandma. This quest-based adventure game is filled to the brim with prizes and pitfalls alike, guaranteed to keep you glued to your keyboard for hours.
  • HaplandHapland - Hapland. Nothing much more can be said. It is quite possibly the ultimate culmination of the point-and-click and puzzle game. A series so awesome that it even spawned an exclusive JIG banner game. You are a stick figure. An entire land of interaction surrounds you. Your goal is simple: open a portal. To where? No one knows. But getting there is not easy. Nearly every notable item on the screen is clickable, and the results of each click can vastly vary depending on the order in which they're clicked. Even not getting the proper solution gives you a sense of satisfaction, as changing the way you do things can give you a completely different outcome. Even after completing the game you feel the need to start over and see what else you can do. The entire Hapland series is simply a must-play for both completionists and/or anyone that considers themselves a "casual" gamer.

While we welcome any comments about this particular selection of games, we do ask that if you need any help with individual games, or wish to comment on the games featured here, please post your questions and comments on the respective game's review page.
