Must I?

I’ve never claimed to be good at video games. In fact, I’ve come to embrace my simple ineptitude with joysticks, thumb pads, and sprites.

So this week I’m not entirely sure what to do with the game I’ve been playing. Must Die is a pretty simple platformer, in theory.

I say in theory because the game seems to be nefariously designed to kill your character in as many unexpected ways as possible.

And I understand this philosophy. I really do. The point is that you win by repeatedly dying to the various obstacles, and with each death you figure out some defining feature of the obstacle in order to, eventually, make your past it; only then you are faced with the next obstacle and the process begins again. It leverages the “learn through character death” aspect of video games to the extreme.

Like the video game version of “Live, Die, Repeat” (Please note that this was an ironic statement. Appreciate my irony! Appreciate it!).

But here’s the things with that type of game: the designers have to be very careful with their use cases.

Here’s an example. One of the first obstacles of the game is a ball that shoots out of a pit, killing the character as he tries to jump over the pit. This means that in order to pass this pit, the player has to trigger the ball before he tries to jump over the pit. But in Must Die, the only way to trigger the ball is get right up to the edge of the pit, which required me slowly creep up to the edge of the pit until I wasn’t entirely sure if I would fall in.

And this made it difficult for me to really get into the flow of the game, which greatly diminishes it’s appeal.

But as I said before, I’m certainly not the best at video games, and maybe this genre is simply not for me as a general rule. But regardless of any of these circumstances, Must Die is simply not for me.

Try it out and see for yourself though!

Salvaging My Work Day!

I’ve alwaysIMG_0659 really liked shorter Mobile Games, that can be picked up and put down whenever it’s convenient and require little to no real focus on my part. These are the types of games that I can surreptitiously open during meetings while my phone is on mute and my bosses are discussing upcoming IDK forms.

This week, I started playing Dwim’s Salvage Company for the iPhone.

This game has everything I need to tune out the meaningless office drivel pouring out of the mouth’s of my inane coworkers.

The game time is short and the mechanics are trivially intriguing. The Player controls a crane as it descends into the oceans and tries to collect the most valuable…. treasure (?) they can. Your crane has a weight limit too, so it’s important that you only pick the most valuable treasures on each run.

I’m not very good. I kept getting couches, which were heavy and not particularly valuable. So just like my office meetings, I ended up accruing a collection of utterly worthless and menial things that I’d need to deal with for the rest of the week

 

Red and Blue

The Electronic Graffiti Team has added a new feature to spice up TumbleBall.

TumbleBall is a great game, don’t get me wrong; but, the team still felt that it could with a little… tweaking.

So the Team has added two new Balls (*chuckle*)

RedBall@3xRed Balls will slow down your Tumble Ball, making it harder to get to the gate in those last few seconds! But Tumble Balls rely on maneuverability as much as speed, and the Red Balls might make it easier for your Tumble Ball to turn those sharp corners.

BlueBall@3x

 

Blue Balls (*second chuckle*) will speed up your Tumble Ball, making it easier for you to gather up those points, but also making it harder for the Tumble Ball to navigate the twisting corridors.

TumbleBall Development Launch

This month the Electronic Graffiti has begun work on our latest project, called TumbleBall.

Tumble Ball is a simple game in which the player manipulates gravity to collect points through procedurally generated levels!

There’s certainly going to be a lot of new challenges to this game, and we look forward to solving them!

Stay tuned during the development process!
