Lokno: Best of 2010
All of its elements create a perfectly harmonious dark macabre experience which will stick with me for years to come.
Unique board-game which is extremely well-executed and always concludes with an exciting endgame. A written narrative accompanies each level which is amusingly overproduced.
This game captures the childhood wonder of both Halloween and classic turn-based RPGs. Beneath its cute exterior hums a deep mediation on these ideas, leaving all the juice and none of the rind.
A engaging platformer built around a focused, hand-crafted aesthetic. Easily one of the best games I've played this year for enjoying with a non-gamer.
A second helping of fantastic planetoid platforming, now with 100% more Yoshi (What was missing from the first game, I feel). I could have done without the pointless waggle controls and narrative, but that what Ninten do.
This game flew out of nowhere to gatling gun my heart in a fit of mad beagle laughter. Great dog-fighting action with a chunky visual style which made the planes and characters look like PVC action figures.
While this is clearly a game made for fans of the series, it is just as clear that it was made BY fans of the series. Lovingly crafted and as sweet and charming as ever, it's as if the series itself has leap in time from 1985 to the present.
Ingenious puzzle game with a very charming aesthetic, as well as a intriguing and mysterious hidden over-plot found only in the collectibles.
Also winner of the "Best Game of 2010 Despite its Prominent Show-stoppers."
Pour one out for Bizarre Creations, as far as I'm concerned they went out with a bang. Electric visual style combined with tried-and-true vehicular combat and arcade racing elements.
There are some solid moments in this game, visually and narratively. These moments are besmirched by TERRIBLE facial animation, janky physics, and redundant encounters. And yet, I recommend you play it through until the end. If anything, it deserves a place on my list for the choice of "Space Oddity" for the ending credits.
