What do you get when you cross a 2D platformer with a pinball game? You get Yoku’s Island Express, where Yoku the dung-beetle’s first day as postmaster turns into a quest to save the island.
The title’s a slight lie since I’m solo again. This is more of a recording test for myself. Plus I wanted to give this demo a shot anyway and figured why not make a video out of it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I hope you enjoy.
Wait a second, an Entertainment Dome video WITHOUT James? Yep, I’m going solo in this one and it’s a first impressions video about 2D vertical platformer Octahedron, where you have to create the platforms to progress.
With tricky puzzles and funky chiptunes, is this something anybody can enjoy or is this one for platformer purists only?
A massive thank you to Amy Graves for providing me with the code for the game.
Well this is new. I actually got contacted by the good people at Games of Edan and received a Steam code for their new title, Icebox: Speedgunner – a first-person shooter/platformer all about getting to the goal as quickly as you can. But since I don’t have Steam, I roped my Entertainment Dome co-host, James, into playing the game and figured we’d do a one-off video about it and share our thoughts.
Is it something reserved only for the elitist of speed-runners or can even a casual player get some mileage out of it? Watch on to find out.
