Steam Reviews: Pineapples, PixelJunk, Snuggle Trucks & Titans

After nearly a straight week of playing, the reviews for all 4 $10-or-less Steam games released last week are now up, just in time for people to grab them during their initial sales ($1-2 off listed price):

Pineapple Smash Crew

PixelJunk Eden

Snuggle Truck

Titan Attacks!

I'm still experimenting with the format & details of the review, so feedback would be appreciated.

I also see that the Daily Special today is Shatter, a game I bought & played a while back. Is it worth the price?

Yes. This is my favorite Arkanoid clone of all time. The push/pull mechanic lets you influence the ball even when it isn't the paddle and really adds a lot to the gameplay. Combine that with tight controls and a killer soundtrack ($3.40 for the game? I paid $10 just for the OST!) and you have, IMO, an unsung classic. I'd write up a more thorough review, but I've just finished 5 in the past 24 hours, played over 30 hours of games for review in the past week, and would rather not think reviewing games for a day or two.

So... which of the games I've reviewed do I want to play during my downtime? Well, I want to make some more progress on Space Pirates and Zombies, although Pineapple Smash Crew is also tempting. (If only Pineapple Smash had difficulty levels or high scores or something!) I also thought about finishing up the post-ending area of Fortune Summoners to see if there's a Hidden Boss and a True Ending, but from the forum chatter it's apparently just new monsters to kill and new items to loot. I'll pass on that; I don't understand why people would want better items when they've already beaten everything else.
