It was offered as a free game on GOG.com, so I supposed it wouldn't hurt if I gave it a try. I was really surprised at how tight this game is. The visuals are very good, and the soundtrack is superb. Characters actually have their own identity, something that is usually missing in games like this. Dynamic environments, platforming elements, and story development are weaved together pretty well. To be honest, I actually prefer this game over Cave Story. If you're looking for a pleasant surprise, I highly recommend this game.… Full Review »

One ofDo you really think you must pay to have a good time with a game? Nope, and there are many freeware games out there that confirm this. One of these games is treasure adventure game.
The plot revolves around a young boy who is left on the doorstep of an elderly couple. They raise him and when he is old enough he leaves to begin his own adventure to find wonders and treasures in a world that is basically an archipelago. I wont say anything else story wise as it is a surprisingly interesting and deeper than it seems, with its own lore and legends.
As mentioned the game world has the form of fragmented islands to whom you travel between in a sailing boat. Each island has its own climate with its respected visual representation and holds its own levels, small or big and you travel between them by boat in which you can also fight with a small cannon. The levels themselves are well designed and never get repetitive. You will never see a level that looks like another one beyond the shared gameplay mechanics. Its a treat to explore them and you will find yourself anxious for the next one.
On the various levels you will also find items a la legend of zelda. The game is mostly centered around them. You necessarily need all of the items if you are to overcome some obstacles, enemies or puzzles. The game is very metroidvania-esque with some of the aforementioned zelda thrown in there. At the end of each level you will encounter a boss, and what I find awesome is that bosses are actually varied.
One other great thing I found about the game are minor segments that have you doing other things like driving a digging machine.
Sound wise, the game is appropriately retro with chiptune like music and sounds, and the same can be said about the graphics too. Minor gripe, both the music and graphics can be a bit inconsistent while all bosses share the same musical theme, but these are just nitpicks.… Full Review »
