Second Wind, Demon Decimator, Jacksmith

Second Wind

Fans of roguelike dungeon exploratory forays will love this sucker. Second Wind is a strange, silly, strategically-difficult game of combat, levelling, and constant descent towards a horrifying destiny. Graphically simple, perhaps, but there's so much stuff jammed into this game that you're likely to play for hours and not find the bottom. Be wary of your HP at all times, as Second Wind is utterly unforgiving.

Demons. What're they good for? Nuthin'. Nuthin' at all, save one thing: utter decimation. Death wants them all DEAD, and that's what you're gonna do. Demon Decimator should instantly remind Pokemon fans of the old days in the ice caverns of the second generation, as that's essentially what this is - a puzzle game based on sliding. Move the demons into lava pits that'll fry their little butts. The graphics are a little bland, but the puzzles are spot-on fun.

In an appropriate end to what seems to be a rather medieval-themed day, we have Jacksmith, a game whose like I have ne'er played. You are Jacksmith, a donkey with expert smithing skills, and you're out to save a princess from her evil wizard captor. You aren't so good with the fighting, though, so your role is to make weapons for OTHER people to use. The assembly process for each weapon is unique, and there's a lot of ground to cover and bits to collect for your weapons. Really neat concept with a cool setting. The art in Jacksmith is great.

That's all! Happy weekends to you lot!
