Hyper Light Look #10

Every month, hundreds of new indies enter the market. While it would be awesome if all of them could have their own, dedicated review or preview, we unfortunately do not have the time or space to do that in a timely manner. Instead, we offer you Hyper Light Look, our series of feature articles where we take a quick look at some new indie games.


Fenimore Fillmore: 3 Skulls of the Toltecs

Fenimore Fillmore: 3 is a point and click adventure game resurrected and remastered, from the golden age of point and click adventure titles, by Casual Brothers.

Originally released in 1999 FF:3 wears it’s past on it’s sleeve with the ability to swap seamlessly between the past and remastered versions with a click of a button in the options. Mechanically as far as remakes go, FF:3 is the warts and all remaster, if you’ve played FF:3 as a kid, this is an excellent chance to unearth some nostalgia.

If you can get past the 20 year old ui and way of traversing the environment, FF:3 proves to be a fun, humorous and overall entertaining adventure, through the wild west.

Score: 7/10

Fenimore Fillmore: 3 Skulls of the Toltecs is available on steam for 14.50 AUD or your regional equivalent here.

Thanks goes to Casual Brothers, for providing us with a golden skull and review codes for this quest.


ClayBook


Claybook is a beautiful & colourful looking concept by Second Order. Which places you in a world of wonder of a physics based puzzle platformer atop a child’s clay set. The idea of a puzzler using clay and the ability to rewind time on paper all sounds excellent.

Unfortunately the ability to get lost in Claybook is muddled by minute yet noticeable issues that pull you from the experience. The clunking controls hampering your movement, combining with basic yet repetitive, styles of puzzles. Makes this experience more suited to a much younger audience looking for beginner puzzle game then that of an adult looking for a mind bending challenge.

For a basic relaxing and beginner puzzle game Claybook fits the bill. Outside of that there isn’t much else you’ll find here.

Score: 5/10

Clay book is available on steam for 21.50 AUD or your regional equivalent here.

Thanks goes to Second Order for providing us with the clay and review tools to make this review.

The Mind of Marlo

Marlo suffers from an extremely rare condition called Spontaneous silly head syndrome, which forces marlo’s head to randomly change into different creatures with respectively different challenges.

While short and sweet,The Mind of Marlo is a great hilarious second entry to Point Bleep Studios line up and for !!!! It’s well worth a look.
