Summary: " Puddle " is a nice idea, but rather ruined by its brutal difficulty level. With a more forgiving difficulty level, this would have been a nice, interesting physics-based puzzler, but instead its super frustrating. If you’re a hardcore puzzle fan, then this is probably a pretty good choice.
Excerpt: Physics-based action games are nothing new in the industry, but it’s always nice to see what different development teams do with the concept. When Sony released LocoRoco a few years ago for PSP, many marveled at the creative presentation, but also dug the tilt-based gameplay.
Conclusion: Addictive too. Even though this game is a relentless bastard that wants to stomp out my pride at every turn, I find myself trying again and again. Well recommended for anyone who likes puzzle games with nice graphic design and mysterious atmosphere.
Excerpt: Fluid based puzzle games are nothing new. The presentation of Puddle is one of the areas where it really shines. Plus Puddle does not stop at water. There are various liquids that player can play with. How do you play with liquids? By tilting the screen left and right.
Summary: I can’t say I’m thrilled by the New Xbox Experience. The interface is a thinly veiled ripoff of the PS3’s Cross Media Bar (or Xross Media Bar if your name is Kaz Hirai), and for their Xbox Avatars Microsoft managed to steal everything about Nintendo’s Miis except their flexibility and charm.
Summary: A Kingdom For Keflings has come as a bit of a surprise to me. I have to be honest that upon downloading it I was expecting a game that I would have become bored of very quickly but I still find myself coming back to on a regular basis.
Summary: If this sounds like your cup of tea, there’s not really any reason to skip this game, but there’s no real reason to rush off to the marketplace and buy it, either. Try the demo if you’re unsure, but again, this isn’t for everyone!
Pros: -First game that uses Xbox Live Avatars., -Quite lengthy., -Easy to pick up and play.
Cons: -Repetitious visuals, music and gameplay., -No autosave option.
Summary: A Kingdom for Keflings is an easily accessible and totally relaxing city-building simulation. Like Cloning Clyde and Eets: Chowdown before it, Keflings is an exemplary display of developer NinjaBee's knack for filling a niche with charming peculiarity.
Pros: Accessible, relaxing gameplay, Endlessly addictive, Great multiplayer, Delightful visual design, Impossible to lose or beat
