[New Game] The Cyberpunk RPG Shadowrun Returns Launches On Android After Scoring $1.8m On Kickstarter In 2012

The world of Shadowrun was created 25 years ago as a tabletop RPG setting, and it certainly had its fans. When Jordan Weisman, one of the original creators of Shadowrun wanted to make it into a proper video game, the internet was more than happy to get involved. The Kickstarter campaign pulled in $1.8 million and now the end result is finally available on an Android tablet near you.

Shadowrun Returns is a traditional turn-based RPG with touch-optimized controls. You guide your party around the gritty world of Shadowrun, wielding both advanced technology and powerful magic to get the job done.

Incredipede Review: A Little Bit Creepy, But A Lot Of Fun

All you have to do is get to the luminous beam of light at the end of the level. That's all it takes to progress through Incredipede. However, actually figuring out how to get there is a bit of a challenge. In each level your buggy avatar has to mutate to make its way onward, growing new limbs and muscles as needed. This kind of experimental gameplay has a tendency to go wrong, even if it starts out strong. Incredipede might have things figured out, though.

Gameplay

Each stage in this game challenges you to retrieve the fruit (or other item) either by picking it up directly or by rolling it to the exit.

[New Game] Pivvot Is A 'Strategic Avoidance' Game With The Potential To Rob You Of Your Sanity

It's very hard for a game developer to strike the right balance between rewardingly difficult and so frustrating as to be unplayable. Pivvot walks a fine line, but manages to be mind-bendingly difficult and still somehow incredibly fun. All you have to do is guide an orb along the track and avoid obstacles by pivoting clockwise and counter-clockwise. Yeah, that doesn't sound challenging, but it really is.

The orb hangs out at the end of a fixed tether, which you can swing in either direction. As you come up on obstacles, simply rotate in the right direction to avoid them. The catch is that the orb does not rotate along with the track, so you're forced to constantly tweak and recalculate the angle to get on the correct side of obstacles.
