FRAMED

This game actually began as a thought experiment.

Games normally come with a defined plot and only the route/achievements determine your success. Thus, games are usually played using actions/triggers – like run, jump, shoot to achieve one of two ends – win or loss.

What if the means completely altered the means themselves? Sounds crazy, but extremely intriguing, no? A set of developers wondered: what would happen if you played with the *context* itself. What would happen in instead?

Fast-forward two years of hard work, and FRAMED is set to apply that same design of ‘Change the order, Change the outcome‘ to the overall narrative; resulting in a context-sensitive dynamic where every action is framed by the last.

In a single line, its like saying you have the choice (and capability) to completely change outcomes by creating a new fork in the road, whenever you want.

FRAMED is a multi-award winning noir-puzzle game where you re-arrange panels of an animated comic book to change the outcome of the story. Unlike anything you’ve played before, it delivers a completely new type of game experience.

We’ve tried it, loved it, and never been able to put down our smartphone over many many days. Its a little bit like playing God, an author, and even like that programmer in the Matrix.

There’s only one way to get that all-powerful feeling. Download the game, plug in your headphones, sit back and give it a go!

Key features of the game include:

  • Elegant mechanics based around re-arranging panels of a comic book to change the outcome of each scene.
  • Unique, hand drawn aesthetic with silhouetted characters.
  • Fully-scored game, with live jazz.
  • Incredibly fluid and lifelike animation.
  • Cigarettes and Defenestration.

LIMBO

Uncertain of his sister’s fate, a boy enters LIMBO… That’s it, that is all the developers have to say about this extremely popular game that they’ve created.

Let us decrypt this for you (we’re helpful that way). Basically this is a puzzle game that gets more challenging as you move from one level to the next (d-uh). Once you start playing it you can get quite engrossed, and time goes by rather quickly! You may want to warn your family and friends about it.

Note though, that this game has received a Teen rating (16+), so it’s not for kids!

Here’s some press coverage the game has received:

“Dark and disturbing is something that is a running theme throughout Limbo, it isn’t a nice game, it isn’t one that will leave a smile on your face but it is engrossing and it will have you suckered in from start to finish.”
-Gamestyle

“The simplistic yet gorgeous art direction, the scant yet absolutely effective sound cues, the limited yet engrossing storytelling and the unsettling atmosphere all come together to build a full experience, one that will not be forgotten for quite some time.”
-Extreme Gamer

“Limbo represents a confident step for indie games firmly into the realm of Art, just in case there were any doubters remaining out there.”
-Game Revolution

“As one of the most unique puzzlers that I’ve played over the years, Limbo’s chilling atmosphere is an example of an incredible gaming achievement.”
-Video Game Talk

“Stunningly beautiful and hauntingly atmospheric, Limbo is a modern day masterpiece. The puzzles are balanced and intelligent, and the art direction is phenomenal. This is one of the classics you owe yourself to experience.”
-Gamer.no

So there you go, this is one game you need to try out for yourselves. Be warned, Limbo is not an on-the-go game, but rather a captivating game that requires patience and solitude.

Cut the Rope

Cut The Rope

Cut The Rope is a unique and interesting game which relies on day-to-day application of Newton’s Laws Of Motion.

Don’t freak out, it’s not a physics game! The aim of the game is to feed a candy to Om-Nom, the ever hungry frog through a series of contraptions.

The candy is tied to a rope or many ropes and you need to make logical cuts so that you collect the maximum number of stars and drop the candy into Om-Nom’s mouth. As the levels proceed, the complexity increases and new problems like candy grabbing spiders start arising. However, if you’re playing from level one, it’s very progressive and introduces one new element at a time, gives you time to adapt to the game-play.

  • Innovative and scientific game-play
  • Winner of BAFTA, Pocket Gamer and many other awards

Paper Toss

Paper Toss

Paper Toss happens to be one of the oldest and coolest smartphone games. This is one of the select few games which runs on all iPhones starting from the original iPhone to the iPhone 5s!

It’s also available for hundreds of Android and BlackBerry devices.

The concept is simple. You need to toss a piece of crumpled paper into a dustbin by flicking it across the screen. But, there’s a catch. There’s a fan in your office which is blowing wind any which way it likes. You’ve got to toss the paper at an angle so as to compensate for the fan.

The angle and direction depends on the position of the fan and the speed of the wind.

What makes this game fun:

  • Amazing sounds and abuses from co-workers
  • Varying fan speeds and directions impact the projectile
  • Seven levels of difficulty
  • Some high quality competition thanks to a very active global leaderboard for this game
Temple Run 2

Temple Run 2

Temple Run (released in 2011) caught people’s fancy, spreading like wildfire and quickly turned into an addiction for a majority of the smartphone world.

It’s creator Imangi Studios, followed it up with Temple Run 2. While the changes to the game weren’t Universe-altering, it is a worthy upgrade, especially considering that it’s free.

The motive of the game is the same. You just stole a priceless artifact from an ancient Mayan temple and now the curse of the Mayans is on you… in the form of a huge killer ape who’s chasing you.

You need to keep running, jumping above obstacles and canyons, sliding below fires and thus progress through the game. The game never ends as you really can’t exit the Temple. Yet it’s addictive, just to get through successive challenges.

It’s almost impossible to get on the international leaderboards. We’ve been at it for quite some time now and we’re nowhere near! That’s what makes this game challenging and fun.

Here is what makes this brilliant sequel so good:

  • Improved graphics
  • Perfect gameplay dynamics
  • New obstacles and powerups
  • The monkey just got bigger :)

Psst: Between the original Temple Run and Temple Run 2, this game has been downloaded over a billion times!
