TwistyTracks is a charmingly whimsical game where the player turns sections of track, linking a railway in order to collect treasure, including gems, coins, and treasure chests. The game has 2 distinct modes: action-oriented Arcade and Realm Tour, where the player travels through five fantastic, unique realms as they recover treasure that was scattered afar by a mighty whirlwind… Treasure-packed bonus levels add another appealing twist to gameplay. The style is fanciful and fun- colorful scenery and eye candy abounds, and the game exudes a cheerfulness that’s downright infectious.
In SnowballRun you have to guide the snowball-riding penguin on a bold adventure through 75 fish-packed levels to a frozen homeland. Sounds easy? It’s not. You have to roll up and down ramps, around curves and obstacles, and over jumps for an exciting challenge that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Granted, it’s highly unlikely you’ll master SnowballRun from the very first try, but practice makes perfect.
BudRedhead (Space Ewe)
BudRedhead takes a page from classic side-scrolling games such as Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog. Admittedly, BudRedhead has a flimsy story and hackneyed plot. But this simple little gem is fun, and it has the perfect setting. You make Bud jump and run through imaginatively crafted levels chock-full of goodies to collect and foes to either avoid or dispatch. You vanquish your foes by using a pair of nifty antigravity shoes to bounce on them. Some of the levels and pitfalls, however, are challenging to the point of frustration.
