Oceanic

Review: Toxic Jump by Pastel Games

image

Pastel Games and I don’t have the best history together.  To see what I mean you can check out my reviews of their first two games, Submachine and Oceanic.  I think they’ve got some good ideas with their games, they just don’t push the content and execution far enough.  On the plus side, Toxic Jump is probably my favorite game of theirs to date.  Unfortunately, what should have been one of those titles that reels me into that “one more time” mentality ends up becoming hopelessly frustrating instead.  And that’s on the easy level...



Quick Look: Oceanic

Oceanic is the second game that I've reviewed from Pastel Games, and unlike the first it does not appear to be a flash conversion.  In a lot of ways it feels like it, though.  I think there's a potentially fun game trapped in here somewhere, but as it stands right now Oceanic feels more like a proof of concept than a full fledged game.
