I think I own every game in that bundle? Though I’ve only played a few of the games for a bit, even there quickly moving on for various reasons. Ah, my order history explains, I bought the bundle when it was offered last year. Along with Fairy Fencer F and ADF? I own Fairy Fencer F? Why would I buy a Fairy Fencer F bundle? See, this is exactly why I had to rein in my absurd bundle buying habits.
Anyway, Jydge seemed pretty decent. Neon Chrome seemed decent, but I remember the “neon” graphics leading to the occasional recognizabilty issue. Your mileage may vary, I like neon, but “neon” art styles don’t always work well for me in video games. Both of these are more “thinking” tactical overhead shooters rather than mindless reflex action.
Crimsonland I played back in 2015. I gave it a negative Steam review, saying that not only did the “improved” re-release ignore the decade of progress the genre has seen since the original Crimsonland, it even regressed in some areas. I should note that a month later a dev replied to my review with a comment that they had just updated the game to be more like the original, and threw in the original version as well. I haven’t tried it since my review, but I have to admit the possibility that at least some of my initial issues no longer apply. Though I’d expect that making it more like the original would only fix the regressions, it wouldn’t make up for the missed 10+ years of development that the genre has seen.
Tennis in the Face, Baseball Riot, and King Oddball are all in the style of those old Flash Player 2D physics games. Seemed passably competent, but didn’t do anything that hundreds of other free games didn’t also do. Though I guess these days it may be harder to find actual Flash Player games, so maybe they have some value?
Spellspire looks like a spelling game for a mobile phone. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though I’ve not bothered to play it. The Sparkle series are one of the hundreds of Puzz Loop clones (like Zuma and Luxor). While it looks like a decent enough knock-off, I remember it not feeling as good to play. I installed Azkend 2 and forgot to play it. Same goes for Xenoraid. The weird thing about this bundle is that most of the games look like things I’d actually consider playing, if only for 15 minutes. I can understand why I bought the bundle. I just never got around to playing most of the games, and didn’t stick around playing even the ones that I’d liked.
But really, I bought Fairy Fencer F? Why?
