Pokemon snap and other spinoff
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED - Bandai; WonderSwan Color, 2003.
This game was similar in gameplay to V Gundam for Super Famicom but far more satisfying. Your character isn’t large and clunky and the movement is pretty fluid. I haven’t gotten to any ground levels in my playthrough yet, though. I can only hope they’re as good as this game’s side-scrolling shooter-ish levels which it does well enough.
The award for Obscure Video Game of 2013 goes to…Crazy Construction! I’m sure somebody out there has played this great 3DS eShop game from G-Style, but you sure haven’t been talking about it much.
At first glance, it might appear just to be a rip-off of the PS3 game Trash Panic, a physics-based puzzle game where you compact garbage into a trash can. But personally I find Crazy Construction a lot more entertaining. Basically all there is to it is creating a pile of stuff that’s stable enough not to fall down. Crazy stuff like moai heads, giant tempura shrimp and, uh, “blockheads”. To make things tricky there are obstacles like birds, electric clouds and black holes. Every fifth round is a boss battle. Each boss has a special attack, like reversing your controls, that makes things even crazier. It’s incredibly addictive, just like all the best puzzle games are.
Crazy Construction is on sale right now for only $3 (down from the normal $5) through 12/31/2013. And if you don’t trust my opinion, there’s a free demo you can try.
dragon quest V was sososososososososos good
someone just said the 3D you get with the 3DS is no different from the 3D in Skyrim and I’m confused as fuck and also mad
Footbrawl Quest (DevLog here, 2012 - Java - Free)
Whod’ve thought that all one had to do to make football interesting was to turn it into a strategy game set in a quasi-medieval fantasy realm where knights and undead armies duke it out for gridiron supremacy?
A recent winner of a TIGSource competition where participants were challenged to make a sports-themed game minus sports game mechanics, Footbrawl Quest boils the game of its namesake down to bare strategy. The goal remains scurrying over to endzone (wherever on the map that may be,) but in a turn-based, stat-crunching melee closer in form to Tactics Ogre more than Tecmo Bowl. It should also be mentioned that in our Earth-One football, the opposing team is generally still among the living and don’t usually have a necromancer for a coach. Think “scrimmage,” but grimmer. Grimmage.
There are both single and multiplayer modes, the latter of which can be run online. Being that a multiplayer SRPG is a rarity even on a console, one wonders how such a polished game could meet such an unforgiving deadline.

Energy Breaker (Neverland/Taito - SNES - 1996)
After 16 years, this strategy RPG has finally received a complete fan-translation, which you can download here.
It plays different from most SRPG’s in that you can explore the environments. It only turns into a strategy RPG when you encounter a monster — sort of like an isometric Dragon Quarter.
