Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails

It may have come out of nowhere, but Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is great, a surprisingly fun and unique game. The presentation may be a little no frills, but the game is a good mix of platforming, shooting, and puzzle solving, fast paced and challenging. It's smartly designed, and while I wish there were more modes, what's there is definitely worth experiencing.

The HD Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character

There’s an old school vibe that permeates through The HD Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character. Its simplicity, difficulty and colorful, Japan-inspired visuals are a call back to a bygone era of games. Outside of the main game, a challenge mode opens at the completion of each level, giving the player a chance to rescue additional baby octopuses within a much shorter time limit. As interesting as the game can be on a visual and gameplay level, the penalty for death and quitting a level halfway leaves a glaring blemish on an otherwise stable, brightly colored and good natured game. A stage can only be repeated so many times before the experience gets tedious and I really don’t want to have to play longer than I have to. That said, Rotating Octopus is a much better game than Floating Cloud God because the puzzle-based gameplay is more engaging.
