I’m not really a computer games person. For some reason, I started playing less and less games since I was about 16 years old. After a while, the only game I still played was NetHack (the ASCII or ncurses versions, I don’t like the X ones). And Koules too, for a while.
Anyway, I started this post to suggest a game which I recently started playing and found very interesting and fun. I know, after mentioning that two of my favorite games were NetHack and Koules I don’t deserve much credit, but still…
’tis called Neverball, and is one of those simple, but yet effective games. There’s a ball and you have to make it through the game level while collecting the coins. The thing is, you don’t control the ball. What you actually control is the level floor beneath it. So what you do is tilt the floor to make the ball roll in the direction you want, at the speed you want (well, if you are a good player!).
By the way, since I’m talking about games: there’s one other I find very good. Since I won’t write a full post about it, I might as well mention it here: it’s Pingus, a free Lemmings clone. It’s very well done with good graphics and sound.
