ilomilo

By  •  Reviews

Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios / Developer: SouthEnd Interactive / Platform: XBLA

When ilomilo was announced as one of the three games being released during Xbox Live’s winter arcade event, I personally saw it as the weakest title.  Raskulls was something I was excited about from the beginning, and as you can see by our review was quite worth the wait.  A World of Keflings seemed like an interesting strategy type game, much like the previous game, and ilomilo just seemed like a boring puzzle game.

ZP2KX (Indie Review)

Publisher: Ska Studios / Developer: Ska Studios / Platform: Xbox LIVE Indie Games

ZP2KX, short for Zombies and Pterodactyls 20XX, is the “sequel” of sorts to last year’s ZP2K9; a side-scrolling 2D multiplayer platformer/shooter from Ska Studios, the makers of other Xbox Live Indie Game hits such as I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1 and Dishwasher: Dead Samurai. Every game by Ska Studios boasts completely hand-drawn characters and levels, which all look quite impressive, especially in comparison to the stock 3D models that the majority of the Indie Games tend to stick with.
