Weekend Download №175
This edition of Weekend Download wants to look back to previous editions for inspiration. Problem is, can you really trust your hindsight? After Weekend Download played Hindsight, Weekend Download is not so sure! *bites nails*
Delta One (Windows, 7.6Mb, free) - A great stealth platform game that stars a former spy agent (who is also a mouse) named Eric. He's on a mission (his final mission) to kill the rat king, but nothing goes as planned. Hop around the lushly-colored world and use your knife to take out enemies from behind. You'll need to manipulate a lot of objects, such as boxes or dead enemy bodies, to hold switches so you can pass through doors. It's a great blend of action, stealth, and puzzle solving.
Hindsight (Windows, 11.4MB, free) - Don't you just hate it when you do something, look back on said event, and realize you could have done it so much better? Wouldn't you hate it even more if your hindsight played tricks on you? The premise of this unique puzzle platformer is that each level is the same, only it's totally different. Looking back on your previous actions, you discover things weren't as they seem. Or was the original layout the "real" one? Either way, each time you finish the stage, your path to the end secretly changes. You never know what's different until you move up to a block or fall down a gap. Spikes become not-real, blocks vanish, platforms appear. It's a strange and almost dreamlike game that will get you with a little trial and error gameplay. But it's so very worth it!
Everclimb (Windows, 3.6Mb, free) - Guess what you do in this game? You climb! Forever! Kinda! Designed to be a frustrating platform game, Everclimb from Magnesium Ninja puts you in an autoscrolling tower of platforms and enemies. As the screen moves from bottom to top, you must struggle to keep up, never falling behind and never getting too far ahead. Beat five levels of painfully difficult action and you'll be rewarded by being one of the few people who can actually do that!
