Archibald’s Adventures
or my money, it’s hard to find a game more playable than a simple, side-scrolling, puzzle platformer and Archibald’s Adventures is that to a tee. The game follows the adventures of skateboarding kid Archibald as he tries to escape the maze of dangers in a science lab filled with creatures and traps. The levels are short and sweet, the graphics are cartoon-y and clear and the challenges fit in wonderfully with the paradigm of a young hero attached to a skateboard. The puzzles are all timing and creative thinking and can really be taken on by anyone of any skill level.8.3 from GameTunnel

TWTPB is a ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of game, and in this case, that’s actually saying something good.7.5 from GameTunnel

  1. Cyclopean and Elemental: War of Magic have caught my eye. Only a year of waiting, awesome!

  2. Just posting to say I appreciate what you are doing, making a compendium of all the upcoming games and whatnot. Great proof that the future of PC gaming isn’t in the toilet. As much as console developers would have you believe, or want you to.
