One of the things I loved about Nostatic’s Quiet, Please! was the lack of nonsense when starting to play it. No long tutorial, no confusing controls to remember, you could just play it immediately. Their recent release, Ascent of Kings follows that same tradition, although it’s more of a platformer than an adventure game.
Whereas the [...]

Among the changes are adding machine-appropriate music, reducing slowdown, increasing responsiveness of the double jump (though I [...]

Super Skull Smash GO! sounds like a pretty silly name, and I suppose it is. But at the same time, it really does describe the gameplay of this retro-themed puzzle platform game from Thomas Hopper AKA TACS Games.
