This week on Click-Swipe-Play I check out three fantastic retro-styled games: Shooty Skies, The Escapist: The Walking Dead, and PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist.
I kick things off with The Escapist: The Walking Dead (Windows), a game that blends The Escapist’s top-down, prison break themed action with the zombie infested Walking Dead. During your adventure you meet characters from the comic and TV show who you can use to build a squad of survivors to help you survive the apocalypse.
The YouTube phenom PewDiePie’s game is next – PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist (iOS|Android). Lifting inspiration from classic 16-bit games like Megaman or Mario, this is actually a really fun platformer – a pleasant surprise for anyone who was expecting a quick cash-in.
This week’s final minute is dedicated to Shooty Skies (iOS), the latest title from the minds that bought you Cross Road. This top-down shooter retains the same humor, bold colors, and blocky art of the duo’s previous game. Add to this its responsive controls, and you have a game that’s hard to put down.
I will be back with another three games next week, be sure to subscribe to not miss them.
