Game Review: Obamacare

covered-california

You’ve probably already heard about this new puzzle game that is sweeping the country. Maybe you’ve already played it! It seems like people either love it or hate it, like with a lot of genre-breaking or re-imaging games. I’ve finally jumped on the Obamacare bandwagon! As usual, I’m late to the party.

Ballpoint Universe Infinite is a little indie game I found on Steam. Sure, there are other, bigger, flashier games out there to review, but this one captured my imagination because of the quirky graphics. All the images in the game are ballpoint pen drawings!

Having never played Rise of the Triad, I went into this game with fresh eyes hoping for something out of the ordinary. I certainly got something different than I’m used to, in the sense that this is extremely old school with a shiny new coat of paint.

Kerosene’s mobile 3D platformer Bounty Arms presents a lot of promise, but ultimately fails to deliver in a way that elevates it above its perceived casual-gaming medium.
