Ace Armstrong vs. The Alien Scumbags Review

As I said before, Laughing Jackal has made some of the best Minis titles to date, but with Ace Armstrong vs The Alien Scumbags that’s not the case.

The game features our hero Ace Armstrong in a quest to defeat the Scumbags who have invaded earth. That’s it, the whole story. The game it’s a side-scrolling shoot ’em up. You fly in Ace’s spaceship blasting away waves of aliens. Along the main gun, which is a blaster, the spaceship can suck different colored orbs and acquire alien weapons such as lasers, three point blaster etc.

Orbit Review

Laughing Jackal has made some of the best Minis title to date. Orbit is one of them. Orbit is an action arcade game where you launch a dude to collect gold into the space. I ask myself “How can you come up with an idea like this ?”

OMG-Z Review

OMG-Z is a chain-reaction zombie game from Laughing Jackal. Chain-reaction zombie game ??? Yes, the game is as crazy as it sounds. A virus is turning everyone into zombies and you, a faceless elite cop, must stop it. How? By shooting a zombie you starts a chain reaction of exploding zombies, but as the game gives you only three shoots per level you must be patient and wait for the perfect moment to fire.

Worms Ultimate Mayhem Review

The latest game in the Worms series is Worms Ultimate Mayhem which was released September 28, 2011 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The game is a mix of content from two other Worms titles, Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem. The campaign is identical to the one in Worms 4. As any Worms game you take control of worms trying to complete different task on a stage. For example in a stage you need to collect specific items or you have to destroy a specific target. But the main task is killing enemy worms.

Zack Zero Review

The first game from spanish developers Crocodile Entertainment, Zack Zero is 3D side-scroller platformer in which you take control of the hero Zack in the quest to save the universe and his girlfriend from the grasp of the evil Zulrog.

The story is really straightforward. Zack must traverse a planet to save his girlfriend who has been kidnapped and at the same time he has to stop Zulrog from finishing his time machine which he will use to change the history. All of this is narrated through cutscenes like the 90′ cartoons. Other reviewers said that the voice actor was one of the worst ever, but I really liked him cause he narrates the story like grandparents narrate stories to their grandsons, changing the tone to evoke different emotions.

Shank 2 Review

Shank 2 is the sequel to the 2010 Shank and let me tell you that the sequel is better and bigger than the first one.

You take role of Shank, a dude on steroids with an immense desire to kill people. The story is simple. Shank must rescue his old friend but in the way of doing so he become part of the rebellion to overthrow the dictatorship of Magnus. He goes into a killing spree, destroying everything in it’s path, be that thugs, amazonian warriors and even animals. He is fueled by rage. There are some epic moments in the game like Shank cutting a helicopter in half with the chainsaw or ripping the jaws of a shark.

Shoot Many Robots Review

Shoot Many Robots is something really special. I grew up in the arcade playing many games. But one that I spended a lot of money on was Metal Slug, it was such an awesome game. And Shoot Many Robots, to me, delivers the same emotions.

Machines have gone mad. They attack everything that moves. Your mission, it’s in the title. Blasting your way through a mission is a lot of fun. The missions are two types, the one were you blast your way to the end where you fight a boss and survival. The levels are varied from villages to factories. Also they have different paths you can take, where you can find secret crates with different weapons and items inside. This game has an insane level of customization. You can change your main weapon, your special weapon which is very powerful but also has limited ammo, you can change your hat, torso and pants. Everyone of them has a different effect on your character. Playing with the customisation to get the perfect combination is very cool. There are a lot of this items that you unlock by leveling up and finding secret crates.
