Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion is a game where you take control of a Orc of your choosing and do battle against the mortal enemy ruining your lands. Most notable the humans, because lets face it humanity sucks.0

The controls for the game are pretty strait forward the only problem is that the game itself is buggy. Such as when Orcs fall into water normally their life will drain until they get out but most of the time. You will experience a painful and utterly destructive instant death at the hands of a puddle of water.Camera angles also make the game incredibly difficult to play to the point where its almost unplayable. As well as a ton of combat bugs that make the game incredibly hard.2123752-169_orcattack_DirtyMode_ot_pc_120312

There are some positive sides to the game if you are playing with friends you can laugh at how bad it is at times. However if the first player dies in the water the camera angle for player two sometimes doesn’t switch and you end up not being able to see where you are going.Can all these problems be fixed though? The answer is yes have they fixed them yet? The answer is no. We still plan on revisiting the game later and maybe seeing if any of the games bugs have been repaired but until then this is not a title I can really recommend.-Daniel Clatworthy-

During your adventures which ultimately lead you to a broken down old mansion where you meet a ghost. This ghost teaches you how to project your spirit to move around and in return you help him pass on.vlc-2013-02-27-00-48-05-41

The game itself is quite amazing and also very relaxing to play with a paranormal type game-play not normally found. Taking puzzle solving and adventure to the land of ghouls and ghosts. You’d think that having ghosts in a game would make it frightfully scary but it is not.

Puzzle solving makes it challenging in itself and the game has a beautiful story to go along with it. All wrapped up in a nice spooky house filled with dead people for a Disney Haunted Mansion like feel.Whispering_Willows-6

Do I recommend Whispering Willows?; Yes and even more so if you are a fan of ghost stories and puzzles. Out of the games I have played this is one of the most unique games ever and absolutely love it.

No money has been exchanged for this review.  SBRBannerShadow Blade reload is a indie platform title that we have gotten a chance to look at while its in early access and so far we have just been greatly impressed with its unique gameplay and need for perfect timing on incredibly complex obstacles.

The overall design of the game is nicely done with extreme detail done to the mechanics to really enjoy it to its fullest potential. I personally love the artwork and overall design of the game and I am quite happy with how it looks and feels.

The fact that the main character is a Ninja is just a bonus for me. I have played quite a few Ninja games and I don’t feel they really capture the challenges one would have if one was a real Ninja. Given this game doesn’t do that either but it comes incredibly close with its teeth grinding rage moments as you fight your way thru each level.
