The Vault

DoraEven if the weather outside isn't frightful, there's something so delightful and satisfying about being somewhere warm and comfortable and seeing something chilly, knowing you're all snug as a bug. With that in mind, let's check out three frosty games... two of which are frozen solid, but one with a bit of a seasonal charm that might warm the cockles of your heart.

  • Heart of IceHeart of Ice - Eddy Larkin's chilly platforming adventure about a nameless hero venturing into a frozen fortress to deal with a being known as "Watcher" has some minor hinks in its gameplay, but sure manages to feel like an epic, atmospheric experience nonetheless. You'll travel through icy caverns filled with traps and enemies, discover messages left by those who came before, and ride a freakin' jet boat. Despite some rough edges, Heart of Ice manages to convey a great sense of scope that allows the game to convey a frosty, old-school platforming adventure with a few bells and whistles along the way.
  • Bad Ice-CreamBad Ice-Cream - Nitrome has never been one to give its players the cold shoulder, and in fact this snowbound arcade puzzler is a tasty treat. Take control of a scowling cone of ice-cream and navigate mazes, picking up fruits while you avoid the hazards and baddies patrolling the maze. It's a very classic sort of vibe, with the simple but definitely challenging gameplay, but with Nitrome's gorgeous signature style sprucing it up, it's the perfect cold desert to enjoy no matter what the weather is like.
  • Colour My FateColour My Fate - Silver Stitch's point-and-click adventure may be a little syrupy sweet, but hey... can't we all use a game that wants to make our hearts grow three sizes every once in a while? As you play, exploring a bleak landscape, you'll gradually bring colour back to the world by solving puzzles and stringing up some seasonal cheer in your quest to remind people about the holiday, and maybe find the perfect gift for that special someone. It's stylish and atmospheric, just a little bit sweet, and it uses the proper spelling of "colour"! What more could you want?

While we welcome any comments about this weekly feature here, we do ask that if you need any help with the individual games, please post your questions on that game's review page. Well, what are you waiting for? Get out there and rediscover some awesome!
