Indie Intermission – The Stars Will Fall In ‘Excitement’

Excitement ss01

Today’s game to blow away the Monday blues is Excitement by Loren Bednar. Loren Bednar is a developer I have featured hear time and time again here largely because his games are very interesting and always just a little different, and Excitement is no different.

Excitement is a procedurally generated  arcade game that feels like some kind of reverse breakout game and is very pretty. The whole idea in Excitement is to collect the stream of particles and prevent the falling stars from hitting the blue bar by dissipating their force with your collected particles.

It really is very different to most games I have came across and because of this it stands out rather well in a market filled with so many games. However don’t expect it to be easy as Excitement requires some serious skill in order to prevent 30 collisions that lead to your demise.

Average play time – 3 minutes

Excitement is anything but boring as in this fast paced arcade style game you will be fighting for you life to prevent these stars from colliding constantly. Its a great little distraction from your day and although  rather challenging it is somewhat relaxing at the same time.

Be sure to check out Excitement online now.

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
