Indie game developer Iron Dynamite recently introduced its rhythm-influenced twin stick shooter to Steam's Greenlight service, receiving early praise from Greenlight commenters. The game, aptly called “Quark,” places players into the 'body' of a sub-atomic particle that dwells within the Large Hadron Collider; our heroic Quark particle is assaulted by sub-atomic enemies, but makes use of stun blasts and detonation (AoE explosion) mechanics for defense.
It is always great when given the opportunity to check out a game before release and see what developers are bringing to the table. Recently, I was given this opportunity with Pixel Piracy by Quadro Delta. I thoroughly enjoy retro pixel games, but man, was I in for a treat with this. Pixels AND pirates -- I couldn't wait.
Now, keep in mind the game is in Alpha, and as such there are many things subject to change. But after playing this game for several weeks, I have pulled one thing away from it: this game is about crap.
Now, you might be thinking, "hey, that seems pretty harsh." Please let me explain.
