Alex’s Adventure

Here’s a great game I found recently on Tim W’s Indygamer Blogspot. It’s a simple platformer called Alex’s Adventure.

Although I’m a pretty critical guy, there are basically two ways games tend to win me over. The first way is to have an excellent story, lovable characters and a quirky sense of humour. That’s unfortunately pretty rare in indie-gaming.

The second way is simply to exude style and atmosphere. Like Alex’s Adventure does. It’s only about an hour long, but it’s probably the best game I’ve played in months.

In fact, I think I’ll add it to my Awesome Games list. It’s just that good.

    Wicked! I just got back from my first round of playing this game, it’s awesomely bizarre and I love it. Weird as hell in a good way. 😀

    Heh, it really is quite cool – but I wonder now if I got a little overexcited about it? It’s a neat game and all, but it’s quite shallow, really. Maybe I shouldn’t have added it to my Awesome Games list after all…

    I dunno, I think it’s quite awesome. :p
    It does, as you said, exude style and atmosphere, and is quite a lot of fun as well without being either too hard or too easy. I think it fits well in your list, personally.
