In the last month of adventurous video gaming, I had jumped from the Game Boy Advance to the DS and started with Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure. As I’d said at the time early on it was an interesting with platforming and a puzzle game together. Unique is definitely the word to describe it. However, as the game progressed it became a bit too daunting in difficulty for its own good. I stopped short of finishing it because I didn’t want to ruin the memories of it actually being fun when it was.
I moved onto Solatorobo: Red the Hunter (CIBfridays). It had a fun story and adorable characters. While the gameplay is basic, it at least doesn’t overstay its welcome like most RPGs do. It may not satisfy long time RPG fans at around 20 hours in total for both parts of the story, but it works well for those, like myself, who don’t play many RPG titles.
At the same time I also was playing Steal Princess. Unlike Henry Hatsworth, this game is exactly what you think of when hearing it’s a puzzle platformer. This wasn’t a game I expected to complete, but what I did get through was enjoyable.
Next up I plan on going back to the PS3 and playing Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.
