The Vault

TrickyWelcome to The Vault's Back-To-School Special, where you get 50% off our already low, low, nonexistent, prices on quality works from the JayIsGames archives! This week, we'll be schooling you on a trio of excellent puzzle, action, and point-and-click games. Not even a new Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper can bring such joy.

  • El ComploEl Complo - Though our readers span the political spectrum, I think we can all agree that most propaganda would be made more palatable if it was in the form of Grow-style puzzle games. Case in point: El Complo, a 2006 work to satirize the various video scandals of then Mayor of Mexico City, Andr�s Manuel L�pez Obrador. Still, one need not be aware of the minutia of Mexican bureaucracy to find hilarious this game where one must fine the correct "recipe" of double dealings to make a city (and one's bank account) thrive. Take note, Chuck Asay.
  • Miami SharkMiami Shark - As the great Tracy Jordan once said, you need to live every week like it's shark week. However, for the other fifty-one of the year, at least there's Miami Shark, the 2010 bit of arcade fun that has you chewing up an entire metropolitan area, one double-toothed chomp at a time. Mausland Entertainment always brings its particular brand of insane surreality to its games, and even if it didn't prove prescient enough to include a Sharknado power-up, there's no denying that Miami Shark is (puts sunglasses on) quite a fin time.
  • Dismantlement: RadioDismantlement: Radio - As a young lad I used to love getting old electronics from the thrift-store to take apart and put back together to learn how they worked. Minus the "put back together" and "learning" parts. So Dismantlement: Radio, the first in the popular series by gam.ebb,jpp, was pretty much a godsend. Playing through it for the first time, you just knew you were witnessing the birth of a new subgenre of games. Though it lacks the strangely satisfying "screw-unscrewing" animation that would soon be the games' trademark, Dismantlement: Radio gives players a strong collection of logical point-and-click puzzles and quirky twists.

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!

The link to Radio:Dismantlement is broken. The link to the JayIsGames article works fine, but if you try to get to the game from there you get a message that says: "

The dismantlement radio is away to Game Design!"

Kind of a shame they haven't done a Dismantlement in a while.
