The Vault

TrickyIt's 11/12/13! Make a wish! (Unless you're in one of those little-endian dating-system type countries, where I think you have to wait a month for your wish). Now, of course, if you tells us what the wish was, it won't come true... but if it happened to be a selection of quality games from the JiG archives, than The Vault has you covered, with action, puzzles, and adventure. If it was for a pony... well, there's only so much we can do.

  • Moby Dick: The Video GameMoby Dick: The Video Game - History has shown that in the never-ending struggled between self-destructively obsessed sea-farers and albino sperm whales, it's smart to stay on the side of the physeters and this 2010 arcade survival game from La Ventanita Studio and Mostro Games shows why: munching and crunching is a heck of a lot more fun than losing limbs. Wreaking nautical destruction makes for quite the good time, and Moby Dick: The Video Game's mechanics combine with just enough of a strategic element to keep the player constantly engaged. Call me entertained!
  • Loops of ZenLoops of Zen - Sometimes when you're looking to kick back and unwind, the simplest games can be the most rewarding. Loops of Zen, a 2008 puzzle work by Netwalk may be merely a gussied up Pipe Mania, but there's just something about its presentation and minimalist aesthetic that makes you feel like you've slipped into a warm bath. A game to play when you're in the mood to contemplate the universe, Loops of Zen will help to untie all the knots the stresses of the world have left in your brain, even as it throws you for a loop.
  • Moonster SafeMoonster Safe - Though Pencil Kids have gained their point-and-click fame with monkeys and ninjas, for my money the internet has enough of those, and not nearly enough of cuddly monsters who live on the moon. 2010's Moonster Safe has those to spare. We probably won't see cuddly plushies of them any time soon, but releasing them from captivity has the developer's trademark blend of colorful animation and gentle puzzling that'll appeal to children and adults alike.

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!
