Almost Impossible!

Though it’s 'Almost Impossible,' it’s also a lot of fun

Almost Impossible from Daniel Counsell is a kind of “nice” impossible game. The bouncing ball looks so friendly, and the red spikes look so deadly. It almost makes you forget the seventeen thousand times you’ve died in the this game.

We’ve seen many games like this before, but Almost Impossible really brings it all together and makes a winner out of the punishing platformer genre. For one, there are occasional save point — which helps a ton. Next the game is just so pleasing to look at. The goal is to move the ball to the right, past check points, over obstacles and avoiding the red bad guys. Some are stationary, some move and chase you. Almost Impossible is a quick play, painful platformer, and a winner.

Canabalt Review

We demand more depth all the time from our games. We expect alternate endings, skill trees, side quests, and endless hours of gameplay. For once, though, we appreciated a game that takes the opposite approach: creating an extremely compact, thoroughly memorable minute or so of intensity.

According to the developer, Canabalt was developed in the space of about five days as part of a micro-game experiment. This game’s impact is sure to be felt much longer than five days, though. Like a colony in a petri dish, or a one-act play, Canabalt offers just a self-contained glimpse of a larger world outside.

Canabalt is an interesting experiment, and it’s one we enjoyed. It’s a game that measures your involvement in minutes, not hours, but we’re confident you’ll still be thinking about it for weeks or months to come.
