The Vault

Tricky Hopefully, by the time you see this our team of dedicated upgradeable-stickmen will have completed the move to our new servers. With comments once again enabled, we can all get back to discussing vital topics in casual gaming-slash-proper comma usage. And, most importantly of all, I can share some excellent shooter, action, and role-playing games from our archives in this week's Vault!

  • Orbital DecayOrbital Decay - So maybe you're not entirely sure what you're in the mood for. Maybe you want a little shooting. Maybe you want a little "strategery". Maybe you want a little defending. Maybe you want a donut. Well, Piron Games thought the same in 2009, and made Orbital Decay to help quash that indecision. (Except for the donut thing. You'll probably have to go to Tim Hortons or something for that.) It starts a little slow, but soon enemy ships will be swarming around you like Ender's Game on steroids. Those in the mood for a bit of sci-fi shooting that's a little bit more tactical, but with no fewer explosions, should definitely check it out.
  • Cactus McCoyCactus McCoy - Flipline Studios, with their Papa Series, deserves all the accolades they get for being the masters of the food creation simulations that they are. That said, when they branch out, they do it right, since Cactus McCoy (and its sequel) are most likely the best beat-em-ups you're ever going to find in a browser window. Furious action combined with bouncy platforming and an (almost) never-ending quest for secrets made an instant classic when it was released in 2011, and when it comes to bad guy punching fun, it has yet to be equaled.
  • Synopsis Quest DeluxeSynopsis Quest Deluxe - Want all the thrills and confoundment of a 50 hour JRPG, but don't have the 50 hours to spare? Well, then Skipmore has you covered in 2010's Synopsis Quest Deluxe! Enjoyably clunky in that retro kinda way, Synopsis Quest Deluxe will have you hit all the hallmarks of the 8-bit experience in a fraction of the time. You'll search suspicious looking pots! You'll deal with long-winded old kings! You'll face your rival on a cliff! You'll learn the truth about your missing mother! But more than anything, you'll play a really fun parody from a developer who clearly knows and loves the material they're sending up.

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!
