619th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 1983 Developer: Doug Smith Publisher: Broderbund/Ariolasoft I’m not going to claim any great affinity with Lode Runner, but I remember playing a version of this at some point and becoming obsessed for a bit with its large number of levels and built-in level designer.

615th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Blue Tongue Entertainment Publisher: THQ I’ve been keeping an eye on De Blob since, I believe, just before the start of this blog, as an interesting game that seemed so different from everything else. Not to mention that the original version of […]

613th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox 360/PSP/DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Metanet Software/Slick Entertainment/Silverbirch Studios Publisher: Metanet Software/Atari Inc Did you know that N+ is utterly ungoogleable? I don’t think I need to explain why, but it’s frustrating when I want to write these small bits. N+ is a platformer, stylized, with […]

601st played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Playdead Publisher: Playdead We begin the next hundred with another known indie game.

594th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo/Sega For some reason, I kept confusing this game with Marble Madness for a long time. It doesn’t make any sense, none of it really matches, but the isometric perspective is similar and I haven’t looked much beyond screenshots. I’ll […]

580th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rare Publisher: Microsoft Moving around the canon of Banjo-Kazooie a bit, for various reasons, Nuts and Bolts feels like a late entry for a 3D platforming hero – the genre seemed to be forgotten about around this point. This game draws […]

546th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Westone Publisher: Sega The late 80s and early 90s were filled with platformers, which is probably the reason why it still seems like main mode of gaming. Even early 3D consoles focused on it, combining it with 3D graphics to create […]
