Alter Ego [Parallel Levels Review]

          You ever try to draw the number six with your hand and make clockwise circles in the air with your leg at the same time? As weird as that may sound, Parallel Levels by Komizart will bring you that same feeling as to when you try to heavily multitask- But in a much more enjoyable way! Control your character, or rather characters, in this multitasking puzzle platformer as you navigate through the course(s) in order to reach the end(ings). You see, as the game progresses you will control more and more characters in their own separate levels, but as you control one character it affects them all. While one action in one section of the level may result in victory, you may very well end up facing a certain demise on another section of the level. Get ready to put your thinking caps on because this game will have you scratching your head in each level of this exciting new adventure.
          I had my doubts when I initially clicked on this game, I'm not going to lie. It only has slightly over 200 plays, and the developer's preloader in the beginning looked a little tacky. But then I noticed that this game was sponsored by Armor Games which means this game HAD to be of an at least decent quality. After all of the preloaders and what-not I was immediately sucked into this game. The very driving music started as I begun the first level and I found this game incredibly fun from the get-go. Any game that gets my attention so quickly isn't exactly your average flash game, I knew this game was going to be something special.

Here we go again... [Disposabot Review]

          And again, and again, and again... Don't you think that all those corpses, which are dismissed as garbage and thrown into the nothingness in other games, could actually be useful? If you don't, you'll probably have a tough time playing Unept's game, Disposabot, since dying is actually your friend in the game. A friend you'll meet at least once a level, since there's no way you're passing these ones without a help of one or more of your past selves. 

(So wait, I need to- but how do I- Dammit.)

         So, the story: you're a little blue bull-brick-thingy minding its own business, then suddenly you get abducted by a UFO controlled by a red umm... something-or-another, who is revealed to be "Dr. Nemesis", the founder of a company which creates all those rooms you despise in other platformers. I guess you know where this is going by now.

Pew pew pew! [Battalion Commander 2 Review]

          This is Sergeant Lugo reporting in, enemies have been seen just a few clicks north of here. Battalion Commander 2 by IriySoft brings the heat in the form of a bullet hell action shooter game. Gain experience through playing the game over again to unlock upgrades, and collect coins along the way to purchase those upgrades. The more upgrades you have the longer you'll be able to survive on the battlefield. Rise through the ranks and complete missions to receive rewards along the way. Put on your boots soldier, and get ready for a casual yet very fun and fast paced gaming experience.
          I thought it was a bit odd that the game didn't have a tutorial level or instructions of any sort, but after starting the game you'll also find that instructions aren't necessary. Besides, there's no instruction manual for war! This game is very easy to pick up and play and has several features in it that make it addicting. The upgrade system, XP system, ability to complete missions, and collection of money all make you want to keep playing until you've reached the rank of Colonel. The fact that the game's difficultly curve works well will also make the gaming experience enjoyable as a whole.
