The soundtrack for the Binding of Isaac is worth $5 IMO, getting a game with it sweetens the deal. Also check out Capsized for some really incredible artwork, the games pretty good too (you get a grappling hook, nuff said).

OP, thank you for bringing my attention to "Orcs Must Die!" I tried out the demo, and thought it was pretty good, but not enough to pay $15 for. But after trying it again, my mind wants to play the full game ASAP.

Righto so ive been sampling quite a few indie demos and wrote down my impressions for each. quite a few i am interested in buying but going to see if i can snag some at even better deals.

please note that all this is completely subjective and just a blip of what the game is and what i thought of it.


Limbo -
Talk about a quiet game, i couldnt turn on my own music though, nothing i have could compliment this gritty dark game. most the sound is from your feet hitting the ground. nothing is truly pleasant in the game, it's a black dream world wanting to kill you. the demo showed a progression of traps trying to give the player a good preview of what else the makers have thought up. very interesting game, you wont keep playing for fun, but for the intrigue and curiosity of whats to come next.

hacker evolution -
i have no idea why i tried this one out. faint curiosity. demo was tough to run because it loved to freeze and crash. mostly just typing with a helpful "type this out exectly next' walkthrough.. not really interesting.

Steel Storm: Burning Retribution -
definitely a quarter arcade game, it's fun but it is also everything we have done before with Tyrian, 1942 (all the top down shooting vehicle with upgrades games). this one just does it from a slight angle and is set in the future. all you have to do is steer and hold down shoot and you'll win. again, it's fun, but it wont keep your interest

Atom Zombie Smasher -
save the yellow blocks from the purple blocks. so in this one you save people from the zombies by via helicopters, problem is once every one is grouped and 1 zombie comes up it's all over and the whole mob turns to zombies. interesting puzzle game, fun setting. top down in a city that looks like a board game is kinda cool. very interesting concept, difficult though.

Solar 2 -
top down....galaxy maker? start as a rock, become a planet, then a star, and work your way up to being a black hole i think. good ambient music. once your planet has enough mass there will be life (humans) who will evolve to make space ships to shoot asteroids. all in all a simple, but very interesting game, definitely not for everyone though. think ill buy it for the amusement factor.

Fortix 2 -
you will get sick of the ring of steel on steel every time you click on something in this lil game. pretty simple puzzle game. you walk around making squares to capture land. you die if something touches you or your line while your making a square. point is to capture all the towers as quick as you can. amusing, but not for me.

The Polynomial -
dizzying, fractal based space light shooter with music. not sure how else to put it but you shoot evil black and red pacmen with a blue laser cannon and apparently your actions cause the music in the game, so i have no idea what i was doing wrong. kinda fun but yes i got very dizzy..pass

ProtoGalazy -
messed up top down space shooter, could not play it at all. someone else will have better luck. you have a laser cannon, missiles, shield i think, and a gravity beam to somehow throw stuff..didnt feel right, it said you could have 4 players coop, upgrade guns and the ship, lots of missions, but not much help and the oddest pink 3 layer clover leaf aiming retical i have ever seen

Vertex Dispenser -
interesing puzzle game with shapes fighting eachother to. capture triangles to conquer one big shape while battling the computer. couldnt really get into it, instructions are vague, very little music.

Zeit Squared - space shooter where your shields are your ammo and all enemies deplete that shield if you dont kill them and killing them uses up the shield with their life replenishing you. They really make this unique with the control of time, you can back it up shoot more or move to another spot and take out another group of baddis then keep going. cool concept, fun side scroller shooter. you feel like a bubble though. music reminds me of f-zero x.

System Protocol One -
another Tower Defense game! gotta love them. this one i couldnt get to enjoy because the tutorial is literally 70 pages of small paragraphs..not fun, i was bored by the time i started and the little blips and bleeps took away from it even more. the strategy is interesting, and very cool concept so i want to try it again for sure and see what this game is really made of. not turned away just yet.

Eufloria -
what in the world is this? take over asteroids with seedlings and make trees which produce more seedlings. apparently turns into a game of conquest against the computer. very like pleasant ambient music.. thats all i got on it really, not something i enjoy.

Super Laser Racer -
just like the top down dirt track arcade racer you would find at burger joints except it's all digital light vehicles and you have some weapons, shield, and dubstep music. very amusing, easy and tough at the same time. worth 5 bucks but other bigger racing games will hold the interest more.

Osmos - peaceful bubble, reminds me of the flash game Fish. you get bigger by absorbing smaller bubbles, and die if something bigger eats you. an extra is that all movement takes away from your own mass which can be recovered if you get to it again. wonderful music, and they are very kind by providing the track and artist names.

Galcon Fuzion -
very straight forward strategy game, using little ships from multiple worlds you conquer all the worlds or just take over everything the enemy has. fun to think of different ways to mass up armie and use them. great lil game and good music to.
------------

Righto so that's 15 games. Next on my list are demos for And Yet It Moves, Braid, Diamond Dan, Light of Altair, a second shot on S.P.A.Z., and then Torchlight.

Since i also bought the Humble Bundle i now have Frozen Synapse, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Spacechem, Trauma, Trine, and JackClaw. oh and someday Splot (unreleased)

good gaming!

Recently tried OIO. You play as a little wooden creature that can plant seeds to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles. It's one of those games you'll probably stop playing after several levels and then come back in a few weeks to finish the rest. Good if you're starving for an indie platformer but there are better choices otherwise.

@ TFL Replica
thank you sir! w00t


@ FreekyGTi
excellent! really want to try this game out though i know ill buy it soon. thanks for link man


Also..with the Humble Bundle, you get a demo of a game called "Jack Claw" basically a guy who is on the run from the cops in a dystopian society, and his right arm is a giant claw that reaches out about 20 feet. can pick up cars and throw them and to defense yourself. slightly amusing, but it's downfall is how clunky the game is, controls are beyond mushy feeling, and knowing when to let go or pick up an item is about lost on the claw.

also having troubles with Trine in the middle of the beginning narration the game just closes...very sad. do you guys know of any fixes or patches?

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a great indie game:
http://www.amnesiagame.com/

also the The Penumbra Series are great as well:
http://www.penumbragame.com/ageGate.php

both made by the same dev, and both on steam, both are horror games and awesome ones.
