I bought [Bad Rats] from Steam Sale, because it's under 1$ & had steam achievements. I played it without any information, and... got shocked to see how bad it is. I don't blame it for bug / UI ... etc. Subject of the game is very bad.

It's 'Physics Puzzle', which has influence from [Incredible Machine] series. Place object here & there, and finally get to the point. Big problem lies here, Killing Cat. I'm not kidding. This game is all about Killing Cat, in most violent ways. Bomb / Chainsaw / Microwave / ... etc. It's not comic as [Tom & Jerry]. Even if it has low version of Computer Graphic, it shows Blood & Guts without any censorship. They made Physics Puzzle to the extreme, and it's not so good. Big Fish Games will never host it, and if it got hit, will get really many blames & flames.

Opposite, [Sand Castle - Prelude] was chosen E3 2010 : Best of Indiecade, for kids. Basically they are similar genre. [Bad Rats] is bad, [Sand Castle - Prelude] is good for kids. The difference is, useless extreme / calm & peaceful gameplay.

Combine Elements. ... That's all.

Elements + Elements = New Elements.

I thought 'Combine Elements & Building some Town & Do Defense', but I was wrong. It's all about 'Combination', nothing more than that. Surprisingly, it's very fun. You could try Flash version of this game, and got hooked as I do.

But the Genius part is Business approach, 'Flash = Free & iPhone = 0.99$'. Of course, there were some good Flash Games ported into iPhone, but this [Doodle God] was made at once(not later). That could be another kind of good Business trial, even if can't be used for every games. At least, I paid 0.99$ after 5 minutes with Flash version playing.

Where to Play : Kongregate

Fun like [Puzzle Quest]?

Attack with Poker.

The easiest way to explain is '[Puzzle Quest] with Poker', and little bit more detailed explaination is 'Attack with Poker'. My words seems to be nonsense, but this is really good addicitve game series. And it's different from [Puzzle Quest], as more simplized version.

1st. game was still good, but 2nd. game became much better w/ improvements. It's not just digging dungeon as 1st., seperated into several areas with special handicaps. Those handicaps are somewhat annoying, but still fun to enjoy. And more skills & weapons added. Just 1 bad thing could be, 'Expensive Weapon is too Powerful to make game different'. But if you became to purchase them, you're already hooked & nothing else matters.

Where to buy : iTunes Appstore
