Alright, time for some Deal-Roundup!
Steam has some neat deals going on:
Let's start with the current king of Casual Games.....
Nothing much to say about this one. Its Angry Birds with some tweaks like gravity and shit. If you have nothing else to do, a timewaster like Angry Birds isn't bad to have available. It also comes with 42 Steam Achievements, if that tickles your fancy.
I honestly recommend this nice little puzzle platformer. I believe I 100% completed it, minus some achievements. There were plenty of rooms/levels to finish, ranging from easy to buttclenchingly frustrating but satisfying once you solved them. There is plenty of variation in puzzles, and the game knows when to shake things up a bit by changing the basic rules for a room (for example changing the control methods, or having you control the room instead of Shuggy, or rotate the whole room etc).
This is definitely a good bang for your buck. Pick it up.
I can't really say anything about this game due to not having played one bit of it myself, but it had quite a bit of positive buzz and looked fairly interesting to me. I'm debating whether or not to pick it up this week. I'll probably have to rewatch TotalBiscuit's WTF is...? video on the game in a moment to help make up my mind.
And to go for more hardcore stuff...
This game is BRUTAL. No, I'm not talking about the Pixel Gore implied by the title (even though the game definitely delivers on that!), but the way the game kicks your arse. You will die. And die again. A lot. If you thought Super Meat Boy was difficult, you probably shouldn't dare play They Bleed Pixels - this is even harder.
If you do play (and beat) a level, you'll get a wonderful load of satisfaction right into your system, which hopefully makes up for the frustration inherent in the precision platforming genre. Definitely bring a gamepad to the party, otherwise this might become even more unforgiving...
Above Deals available until May 3rd at 10AM Pacific time!
