12 is Better Than 6 • Pass the tutorial
I loaded up my Windows 10 installation today, moreso so I could put Sea of Thieves onto my PC and see how it ran, but while I was there, I thought I would investigate a couple of the smaller games I had loaded on in days gone by.
This little title seems to adopt a Wild West tone. It’s a top-down action game, that seems like it would work much better with a controller than keyboard and mouse – particularly a touch-pad mouse where a required right click plus left click for shooting is needed. There’s some fine finger-work required to master that particular sequence, but I managed to do enough of it to get through the tutorial.
I love the art style of this game. It’s simplicity is similar to that of SUPERHOT in it’s strong, plain colours and attention to good gameplay. You can tell a good game when the mechanics are enough to hold your attention over the visuals, but when a game has a good combination of both, and this game does, then I think it’s worthy of a mention.
I’d like to play a bit more of this game over the next few days, but my Windows install runs a bit choppier than my Mac partition, and the internet connection doesn’t seem as stable either. I’ll give it a go and see what falls out of my attempt, but worse-comes-to-worse, I’m sure I’ve got a few clicker achievements waiting in the wings.
