After so much villainy last weekend, I need to redeem myself, by rating games and talking about them here!

This time, I decided to highlight the 5 most gorgeous games that I’ve played out of the 40 or so that I have rated so far. These games will make your eyes hungry :-) Go play them!

Without further ado:


  • Memex;

    Cake and Code keep their tradition of producing stunningly beautiful game. A lot of care is taken in the design of the visual and auditive elements of their games, and it shows.

  • The Other Side;

    Vrld’s game consists of three “reverse arcade”: space invaders, pacman and canabalt. He manages to create a consistent and attractive visual identity for the three very different games. I don’t quite agree with his gameplay choices, but there is no denying the graphic quality.

  • Twisted Neighbourhood

    Klakwa built a very different “game”. A tornado simulator, you control a tornado and has to destroy the neighborhood. The movement of the tornado, and of the trees and houses as you get stronger and stronger, is really awe-inspiring.

  • Tyranoforce

    Tyranoforce, by blob, is a reverse shoot them up. The game lacks a lot of “quality-of-life” things, such as music and resetting. But the spritework is phenomenal! It is retro, while having its own personality. And the dinosaur in the controls is awesome.

  • The Hill

    Strkl made, literally, a work of art. Some gameplay was sacrificed to deliver a very touching story, using this wonderful artwork. Although I love the ludus, I think this approach worked very well here. The faces of the sprites are very expressive, and tell the entire story without the need of text.


Thanks for reading! If you liked these reviews, make sure to read my previous one. Also, feel free to plug your games in the comments!
