Game Podunk When you think of ‘indie games,’ what comes to mind? For many people, including myself, the mind begins conjuring up images of 2D platformers and lots of them. That, or games with a retro pixel art style. There’s nothing wrong with that, and the mindset of indie games all being like that is quite dated, but that is no doubt what many gamers imagine. Obviously indie games have the capacity to have any art style and fall into any genre, and Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers has reminded me of this simple fact. So, this is a different kind of game but does it succeed in being creative? Read Full Review 60/100
Splitkick Splitkick: The best pure platformers are tight, precise, pixel perfect affairs. The best pure puzzle games leave clues in plain sight, if your brain can twist itself into the right shape. Puzzle platformers can survive without a pure platforming experience but only if the puzzles carry the day. Tiny and Big brings a solid set of mechanics to the table and an interesting comic-book art style. Developer Black Pants had something special here, but lost their magic underpants somewhere along the way. Read Full Review 50/100
