At Playcrafting NYC’s last Demo and Play night of the year I was treated to a whole slew of games that caught my eye. Today lets talk about Sumer!
Antipole DX is a platformer that’s inspired by the 16 and 32 bit classics that we know and love and adds gravity to the mix. I’ve been following this game for a while now and I was darn happy to get my hands on it at Gameacon and find it doing better than ever. When I first came across the game a few months ago it needed some loving. Thankfully the team behind it has tightened up the controls and put some more polish on it. Antipole DX now looks, runs and plays beautifully.
At Gameacon this weekend the very first game I came upon was Sombrero. I have to say it was an awesome way to start the con. A a two year labor of love by Nick Robalik Sombrero is fast four player action with plenty to see and do in game. It’s an area deathmatch game with multiple modes and an awesome quirky art style.
Checking out Rohan Narang’s newest game before it’s even out yet: Squareboy vs Bullies. A retro beat-em-up with solid controls for iOS and Android coming soon.
