Link Dump Fridays

DoraThis week's Link Dump Friday is all about heroes. Zombie slaying heroes. Ninja dicing heroes. Uh... giant... cybernetic... Tolkien-monster slaying... furry heroes... hmmmmm...

  • MeowraMeowra - The hero of Vorbis' turn-based match-3 game is a cybernetic superhero cat who defends helpless kitties from the Nazghul and other genuinely creepy monsters from worldwide folklore while the narration wishes, "May the force be with you, Meowra!" No, I'm not kidding. Though on the repetitive side, it's simple yet weirdly endearing Puzzle Quest-style gameplay as you match gems to help Meowra beat up monsters before they can do the same for him. Godspeed, Meowra.
  • Pillow City RevelationPillow City Revelation - In Small Farm Studios' cute yet gory zombie action RPG, protagonist Xiro must battle his way across an infested city to rescue his little sister with the help of a band of survivors including his game designing boss and a cow with a PhD. It's a game that needed more polish than it has, largely due to some awful text editing for such a story-centric game, and some slow repetitive gameplay besides, yet there's something weirdly charming and addictive about it. Probably the perversely cute way the zombies chow down on human remains, like a toddler with Cheerios. D'aaaawww.
  • Black Bit NinjaBlack Bit Ninja - Ever wonder what it would be like to be the Mr. Bean equivalent of a ninja? Hero Punch has you covered with this retro-styled physics puzzle where you control a tiny ninja whose only weapon is to hurl himself in the vague direction of his foes. Granted, if you can connect, that's a pretty good weapon since you'll instantly slice and dice any enemies you pass through, but you have a limited number of "dashes" per stage, and all that's missing is the sad trombone wah-wah-waaaaaah whenever you aim improperly and miss your mark to plop down a few feet away.
  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Game - 30th Anniversary EditionThe Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Game - 30th Anniversary Edition - You're a hoopy frood who always knows where your towel is, right? So why not celebrated with this enhanced version of the classic text adventure based on Douglas Adams' hit science fiction novel and most certainly not that one movie we don't talk about, though Sam Rockwell was pretty good. We've covered the Hitchhiker's Illustrated Guide to the Galaxy game before, though that has since become unavailable, and this new version has everything from the original, plus some shiny new graphics and a new interface. And, yes, the babel fish puzzle, which as we all know is the greatest puzzle to ever grace an adventure game and absolutely will not make someone hate you if you coerce them into trying it.

Meowra is a slow, clunky, and annoying version of a great game called Biogems. I wanted to like it because I loved Biogems, but after trying a couple of levels, I went and played Biogems instead.

Uh, I am such a nerd.

I winced when I say froody spelled 'froopy'.

While it's true that Meowra could use a bit more work, it's also true that Mandurugo (level 4) is overpowered
