Fix the Sun
You stubbed your toe getting out of bed, you spilled your cereal all over the place, and looking out the window, you realize that the sun has burnt itself out. Yep. It's going to be one of those mornings. But with the help of the last little ray of sunshine and a couple of sparks, you just might be able to Fix the Sun. Fix the Sun is a puzzle platfomer by DB based around a unique gameplay mechanism that will have you flitting and flipping everywhere as this little light of yours is let to shine all over the dang place. Use the [WASD] or [arrow] keys to move and the [spacebar] to jump. To open the exit on each level, you'll have to collect all of the sparks on the screen. To collect them, you must leap in their orbit, then hit [spacebar]. You will be launched in the direction indicated by the arrow relative to your position. You'll need to flip around from spark to spark to grab them all. Also, you are racing the clock: spend too long without a spark and it's lights out. [R] restarts your current level, and there are 24 levels in all.
Fix the Sun will live or die depending on how engaging you find its unique central mechanic, which comes off as a cross between Sling and those barrels from Donkey Kong Country that blast you back and forth between them. Personally, I loved it, finding that it struck a good balance between planning your moves, while having the quick reflexes to implement them. In later levels, watch out for angry meteors and the red sparks that will boost your speed, but also allow you to bop off the meteor's heads. Certainly there were a few levels that seemed to be impossible without dying several times, which is a negative. But honestly, this is a game where there'll be a lot of dying and restarting on most levels, period, making it probably not for the easily frustrated. But those who persevere in Fix the Sun will find it very rewarding. After a few levels you'll know if it's one for you, and tomorrow may rain, so go and Fix the Sun!
