Indie Intermission Sunday Round Up: An Adventure Through Time And Space


This week I have found some very interesting games. From the abstract to the specific this week has been a very interesting one with a handful of awesome titles. As always clicking the title will take you back to my previous article on the game whilst clicking the image will take you to the game, enjoy.

Monday: The Stars Will Fall In ‘Excitement’

Excitement ss01

Excitement is almost a reverse breakout style game as you must prevent the stars from falling and hitting the base bar. It’s a very interesting idea and looks visually stunning along with working great in terms of gameplay even if it is very difficult to even last two minutes.

Tuesday: Shining A ‘Spotlight’ On Your Life

Spotlight ss03

This is a very interesting game that allows you to travel through the life story of the protagonist. In each scenario you must find the one object to link you to the next event to progress, although this can be rather tricky. It’s very visually impressive and the gameplay itself is not half bad so it is well worth your time to check out.

Wednesday:  There Is Only Ever ‘Oneway’

Oneway is a very interesting almost matching game in which you must pick the correct evolution to beat the level. Although the game starts out painstakingly easy after a few levels the difficulty begins to ramp up and before you know it you are having to make many snap decisions often leading to many level resets.

Thursday: ‘Chompston’ What Happens When Pac Man Finally Fights Back

It’s a combination of games I don’t think many people ever thought would be combined but boy am I glad it has been done here. Chompston combines some of the best elements behind Pac Man and Bomber Man in to a new (if not familiar) format that is just a pleasure to play. The only thing I feel this game is missing is mutliplayer but you can get everything can you.

Friday: ‘The Button Affair’ A Heist Game Like No Other

The Button Affair Prison

The Button Affair really is a triumph in style and gameplay but as you know I have been banging on about this for a while now. If you are looking for a free game to keep you busy for around an hour you really cannot go wrong with The Button Affair as it really is a great game to waste sometime on.


I hope you have enjoyed my round up for the week and of course enjoy the games on the list. It’s been an interesting week and many of the games here really do deserve your love so be sure to check them out and spread the word. I’ll see you all tomorrow for a brand new Indie Intermission.

Raised on C&C, Theme Hospital, and Dungeon Keeper it was inevitable I would become a strategy nerd... and Sci-Fi (I love Sci-Fi). Board gaming is my second love (after video games of course). Find me on Twitter @alexwilkinson
