Ludigames 5-Pack Review
Ludigame's 5-Pack of games offers a variety of games from different styles. There's a side-scrolling, space shooter game, a little beach volleyball, and a logic based game called Atomino. The variety of game styles offers a little something for almost everyone.
Atomino is a logic game where you race the clock in an effort to gain as many points as possible. There is a bar on the right which fills up with various colored atoms. Each color has a set number of electrons to it. The electrons are really contact points, and the most a single atom can have is four.
The goal is to create a stable molecule, that happens when all of the electrons are touching another. The larger the molecule is, the more points you'll get. Atomino is pretty easy to learn, but can get really challenging once it starts to speed up.
Saturn Strike is a side scrolling-action game like many others. You're in a space ship and you need to maneuver through many asteroids and aliens in a seemingly endless journey home. You have the ability to fire at the objects coming to destroy you and sometimes you'll be able to grab a power-up which provides you with a fancier way to shoot.
The graphics aren't spectacular and the controls leaves a bit to be desired. Overall it's a good game but not too attention grabbing.
This is definitely my favorite game of the bunch. You are basically a crab who loves to play volleyball. You can jump, set, and even spike the ball towards your opponent - yet another crab. You and the other crab play it out to be the champion crab at the beach. Between every game is a short, and rather cute, cartoon.
The graphics in this game are very cartoonish, and very cute. When combined with a simple yet addictive game play this game is definitely one of my favorites.
You are half human and half machine. And you are about to take part in a fight to claim your territory. The game itself is pretty simple because there is really not much to it. You can either do an uppercut or a jab, and you can move closer and further away from your opponent. After a little while you can enter fury mode where you can hit your opponent as much as you want for a few seconds without him retaliating.
I think the game is alright but the crucial thing it's missing is two player mode. The ability to fight with real people, instead of a slow-thinking computer, would make the game much more enjoyable.
This game was definitely my least favorite. Looking at the graphics, it definitely seemed to be geared to the male audience. The game was rather pointless and seemed to me like it should have been thought through a little more. Pretty much all you do is hit buttons to match the arrows coming up from the bottom of the screen. If you match it'll tell you good and if you don't it says bad. After the bar reaches the bottom of the screen your game is over and you get to start over again. I wasn't too intrusted in this game due to its lack of purpose.
Some of these games are pretty good but they're also huge space hogs. Each game is about 300k, which totals to about a meg and a half. Despite that small issue it's still a good game pack. You should try it out yourself first and then decide if you would really like to spend the $15
