Rustbucket Rumble

May 31, 2015 — by Abhijit "BabuMoshaaye" Dey0

2D side-scrolling games are far from dead and the new ones get more interesting everyday. Rustbucket Rumble lets you pick between six different robots, giving you access to them in rotation. There’s the Red team and Blue team and they battle it out against each other, turning their adversaries into trash and recycling them to build a giant robot. That robot, once created, brings in the real fun to the game as it goes about wrecking the opponent’s robot factory. But if both the teams manage to complete their robots, well, it’s a treat to watch two giant robots pounding each other. Picking the right character is essential since they each play different roles in a match, offering different abilities. As you turn your opponents into buckets of trash, you can carry them over to your factory and recycle them, feeding your giant robot. You need to do this fast since that bucket of trash transforms back into an enemy after a time.

Rustbucket Rumble is quite fun, fast and competitive, and currently the multiplayer isn’t so wonderful, but the game is good enough to give it a roll. Now’s your chance to bring that pent up roborage an outlet! So what are you waiting for? Grab the game for free on Steam and get gaming!

Spooky’s House of Jump Scares

You’re quite well aware of that popular catchphrase, ‘That escalated quickly’ and that was exactly our reaction when playing this game. Spooky’s House of Jump Scares wants you to survive cute terror. Using, well, jump scares to scare you, the game has you wandering through 1000 rooms, meeting cute characters that don’t stay cute for long. Broadly, the game looks like entering those horror houses you visit at amusement parks, but now it’s a game. One instant you’re endlessly browsing through the rooms, interacting with the environment and the next you’re fleeing from something that wants to hurt you. As you flee and blindly enter rooms, you’ll shriek at random because somehow, the cutest characters on this Earth will give you heart attacks.

Having your heart racing to a bunch of characters that mostly give you a warm and friendly feeling isn’t really nice *Sniff*. To completely enjoy the game the way the developers intended, play the game alone, preferably in the dark. If you’re planning to do a speedrun, we advise you to keep a defibrillator and a paper bag handy since someone will have to resuscitate you from time to time and the paper bag will give you something to breath into when you have a panic attack! Spooky’s House of Jump Scares is fun to play and altogether a new experience of gameplay, and the best part is that it’s free.

Sandmason is an indie game where you’re a mine worker who has to work his way out using his mining tools. It offers a mix of FPS and puzzle solving gameplay just like Portal did, and here you get to dig through the walls and create force fields. There are deadly traps and monsters that will feast on you, so you always need to find a clever way to get across them. You can explore the caves as you gain abilities, coming across secret areas and bonus items to collect. There’s also a very beautifully made tutorial that will prepare you for the rest of the game and teach you how to use your high-tech mining gun. The puzzles are really creative and you will rejoice every time you solve one.

Check out the trailer for Sandmason below:

Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe

You have obviously been playing Tic-Tac-Toe right from the time the dinosaurs shook the earth. Scribbling on a piece of paper in school when your teacher had his/her back turned on you, over the years the game got boring. Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe wants to change that and bring in more fun into the simple yet skillful game of Tic-Tac-Toe.

There are three modes to play that include Ultimate, Ultimate Forget, Ultimate Forget Total, Classic and Classic Forget. The 3×3 game board contains smaller 3×3 boards. The interesting thing about this mode is that wherever you make your move on any small board, you send your opponent’s next move to the respective square of the bigger board. When you win on a smaller board, you get your mark on the equivalent bigger board. The Forget mode brings in another competitive style where the board erases the oldest move after every 4th move. The game also supports multiplayer!
