The Vault

TrickyWe're all really excited here at JayIsGames since the final countdown has started for the debut release of our new TRICKYA game console. Built on the framework of that crate of bootleg iPads that I got from a guy who knows a guy cutting-edge technology, the TRICKYA console will let you play all of the wonderful works we've featured in The Vault and many more, just as soon as we scratch off the serial numbers line up dedicated third party support. Till then, try to slake your summer thirst with this week's selection of quality driving, launch, and fighting titles from the JiG Archives.

  • Pizza CityPizza City - One of the first attempts to "demake" the open-world concept, and still one of the best, Pizza City, a 2008 drive-em-up by Pixeljam, has all the raucous action and humor of its GTA and Crazy Taxi inspirations, wrapped in an engaging pixelated package. Delivering pizzas has never caused so much property damage (outside of a Neal Stephenson novel, at least). Sure, the physics will have you slipping your vehicle around town like the roads are covered in ice, but that just means that more bank robbers and street mimes are going to meet their bonus-granting end. Friggin' mimes.
  • Hedgehog LaunchHedgehog Launch - There had been games about chucking cute critters into the air before, but jmtb02's 2008 Hedgehog Launch codified the concept into the stratosphere. The launch game that launched the launch genre, Hedgehog Launch's addition of upgrades, a clear final goal, rocking sound and visuals, and just a touch of scientific satire makes for an action game that's been sequeled and emulated, but never quite paralleled. It will make you believe a hedgehog can fly.
  • Chaos Faction 2Chaos Faction 2 - Chaos Faction 2, a 2010 brawler by Dissolute Productions, features some of the most furious fighting ever found in a browser window. Definitely a game for those who play Smash Brothers with all items turned on, the game isn't going to appeal to the strategic minded Evo champions, but its huge amount of character customization, gameplay options, and unlockable weapons makes for a lot of fun. A hyperactive kind of work, Chaos Faction 2 will force you into that special brand of cognitive dissonance where your whole body somehow becomes tired from moving your fingers so fast.

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!
