“Star Ghost or the ghost of Flappy Bird?”
Ready for take-off, but is it a smooth flight?
Nintendo fans in the DS era were treated to some wonderful puzzlers, including plenty of new takes on the genre. Picross got a new lease of life on the system thanks to the touch-screen capabilities, while Su Doku was an addictive way to pass the time as a side-challenge on Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training.
Rainy Frog Games have confirmed a late-August release date for their puzzle game, dropping a brand new trailer for us to get hyped over.
As someone who spent much of the late 90’s playing one rendition or another of Capcom’s Resident Evil series, I was actually quite excited to jump into Vaccine once I saw the obvious nod in styling. On the surface it has much of the same elements as the early titles in that series, and I figured it’d offer the same kind of challenge. My excitement was soon met with both admiration and anger however, as Vaccine ended up being much harder to pick up than its inspirational forefather. Actually, it was much harder in pretty much every way – and that’s kind of what makes it a great game in its own right.
