Week 100: Coldgearz

Ok, so each weekday today, I will be posting many games, as a celebration that we got this far.
First off is ColdGearz. Its a Gamemaker side-scrolling platformer shooter, with really good cartoony graphics, and has a really good storyline. (Not anything fantastic like Iji or Cave story, but decent all the same).

Week 100: Dizzy

Dizzy a straight-up platformer where you play as Dizzy, the egg. You bounce/roll around the level (You would think that so much bouncing would crack the egg), which is the reason for the name. Unlike most platformers, this has a very strong focus on logic/puzzles. The original game was called Dizzy, then 7 more games follow (with many spinoffs created). Finally, there is an engine called DizzyAGE, which helps people create more Dizzy games.

The next game is called Blackthorne. Its another side-scrolling platformer, but it doesn’t really feel like a platformer, as a action/puzzle game.  You play as Kyle (or Blackthorne), and you are trying to save your nation from monsters that were transformed from normal people, because they abused their black stone that they were given years ago. It has fantastic gameplay, and a decent story. It was made by Blizzard/Interplay, and must be played on DOSBox. (Not sure about XP).  Be sure, also to not waste all of you hover bombs, as you may need them later.
