Flying Carpets Games offers up a potentially interesting title that sadly does not really fulfill the player in terms of interest or challenge. The premise of The Girl and the Robot is that a young girl is trapped in a castle ruled by an evil queen and the girl and her robot companion must solve various puzzles and fight enemies to escape the queen's clutches. The awkwardly animated duo fumble their way through a myriad of blandly colored buildings in the sky in an oddly empty city populated only by fairly ineffectual robot guards.
Broken Bots is a fast-paced, wacky, multiplayer game from Bunnycopter and it is an absolute blast. Everything about the game is well put together and incredible fun with enough game modes and combat variations to entertain the player over and over again.
SteamWorld Heist is very thematic; there is a strong western vibe to the entire game. It’s like western meets steampunk meets space travel. I just recently watched an old western movie on television and there were parallels between the two. The characters do not actually speak; there are text boxes that appear whenever a character speaks. Even though no actual words are spoken a "beep" and "boop" sound accompanies the speech boxes which is adorable and kind of endearing. Although all of the characters speak in a very stereotypically western way, it isn’t offensive or overdone at all. The game developers seemed to know how far to take the western theme without it becoming too much.
Brigador is an effort from Stellar Jockey and Gausswerks that offers a retro style, real-time strategy combat experience. You are on the Human colony of Solo Nobre and your purpose is to cause destruction in the wake of the rise of a dictatorship on the colony, and aiding the rebelling faction.
