Indie Reviews: Quick Looks w/o Reviews? BLASPHEMY!

It was an interesting week. I'm still working on the backlog because I was also paying Cargo! Quest for Gravity and Defenders of Ardania at the same time. (Yeah, I know they're a tad more expensive than the usual games I review, but these were personal buys.) I hope to have reviews of Bumbledore, Cubemen, and Space Ark up shortly; I don't want to fall behind now that I've reached the 25-review mark. In other interesting news, 3 of the 4 games I'm reviewing this week previously had GiantBomb Quick Looks, but only 1 of them actually had a review posted. That's a shame, isn't it?

Anyway, without further ado, here's this (er, last?) week's reviews! (Note that the links go to the reviews themselves, not the game page.)

Cargo! Quest for Gravity: Mediocre become memorable through sheer weirdness quotent.

All Zombies Must Die: Too generic, doesn't pack enough punch to stand out amidst the zombie crowd.

Defenders of Ardania: So broken... I nearly wept. I really wanted a good tower defense game here.

Wizorb: Like playing an old NES classic. Cheap too.

Which ones would I continue playing? None, really. I'm a bit tempted to go into Sandbox mode on Cargo!, but I have too much else to do right now, including review the other games from last week before my backlog builds up too high.

And since I've reached the 25-Steam Reviews milestone, I plan to do a breakdown of the games I've reviewed so far later. Should be interesting to see just how the genres/game styles break down.
