Fuzzits Review: Furballs and fun are a risky match in Fuzzits!, a new virtual pet simulator

Jan 19, 2011

The eponymous protagonists of TnT's Fuzzits resemble nothing so much as Tribbles, the limbless little furballs that famously buried William Shatner up to his communicator in a famed 1967 Star Trek episode. Kirk and friends couldn't wait to get rid of them, but here your goal is to gain and care for as many Fuzzits as you can.

It's a nice idea, but the trouble with Fuzzits lies in the execution.

Jan 19, 2011

The era of the Great Depression wasn’t a happy time in America’s history, so it’s a somewhat courageous setting for a time management game given that the genre’s tendency towards colorful and lighthearted stories. Garage Inc, a new release by developer TransGaming, puts the player into the shoes of Angelo Martin, an average joe who decides to open an auto shop during these tough times. Unfortunately, while the game’s presentation is top-notch, the gameplay lacks enough real challenge to keep the player interested.

Phantasmat Review: Phantasmat uniquely offers a choice of hidden object or match-3.

Jan 18, 2011

Oh, Video Game Hero. One of these days you might try not approaching that old dilapidated building that inevitably turns out to be haunted. Of course, you don't have much of a choice in Codeminion's Phantasmat. Don't let the well-worn plot device fool you, though. In a genre where so many games are rushed to market, Phantasmat is a breath of fresh air. The developer's respect for the hidden object audience, coupled with a clear understanding of what this audience likes and doesn't like, makes buying this game a no-brainer.

Rappin' Granny Review: Rappin' Granny is a music game with a catchy tune, but the experience is both short lived and flawed

Jan 18, 2011

Rappin’ Granny, as you might expect, is about a granny. One who raps. And also wraps. Better put, it’s about a hip-hop granny with a boat load of gifts that need to be delivered to her many, many grandchildren. It’s sort of a music/puzzle hybrid, with a silly premise and sillier presentation. But it also feels more like a basic concept than a full-fledged game and won’t hold your attention for very long.
