Two physical titles will be up for order from our favourite publisher today, and we’ve got a reminder of just what to be ready for.
Priced at $24.99US each, the limited run physical copies of Curses ‘n Chaos and The Swapper go on sale today – the first wave going up at 7am Pacific, and the second wave going live at 3pm Pacific. Are you ready to drop some cash on these babies?
For those on the fence (or possibly not in the know), Curses ‘n Chaos is a action game throwback to the retro era – offering three lives per stage, and a game over system that makes you start at the beginning of said stage. You’ll have to punch, uppercut, super-punch, and flying kick your way though ten waves per stage; utilizing single-use weapon drops when they land, and trying desperately to survive.
Lateralus2801 gave it a 4/5 in his review for us, saying “Don’t let the difficulty scare you. Curses N Chaos is a fantastic game that takes pride in kicking the crap out of you, hoping that you’ll come back for seconds.”
Sounds like a buy, right?
As for The Swapper, it’s an eerie-looking puzzle/platformer that has you trying to clone your way through a desolate spacecraft. As you get further into the depth of the ship, you’ll come face to face with an abyss of puzzles – you’ll simply have to creatively copy your way out, if you can.
Charlie gave it a 4.6/5 in his review for us, with a rather high praise conclusion that states; “A brilliant, yet eerie, puzzle-platformer The Swapper is a game that will get you thinking. Simple in its premise yet deadly in its execution, The Swapper thoroughly deserves to be played by anyone that likes their games to be challenging.”
Two fairly highly praised games on one day – what is a gamer and/or collector to do? 😛
