This one’s not only for fans of old-school hard-core 2D platforming, but also for those being open to experimental games with unusual topics. Edmund McMillen’s indie games contained in The Basement Collection provide the proper stuff for some entertaining hours. Just the responsiveness of the controls could be improved a little.
Even though you can play these games online for free, the collection offers extra artwork, videos, and interviews which are pretty great to see and hear. Besides, it's cheap. Anyway, the game themselves offer hours of challenge and entertainment. It's a really great collection if you like experimental and/or indie games or Edmund McMillen's games themselves. 10/10
This game completes nerds.
Great stuff, very thorough and much added. Lots of hidden gems. Spewer is awesome... and I think Portal 2 should pay love to it for the variants of liquid goo that serve particular purposes. Aether is one of my favorite games and I'm glad it's back with some updated goods. Triachnid is an indie masterpiece and I'm glad it's back with a right-click. There's a lot of extras here for true nerdcore fans... including interviews, concept art, prototypes, and snippets from Indie Game the Movie. For the price it's incredible. I haven't unlocked everything... so I'm secretly hoping the game Guppy is locked away... since I've been drooling over it since I've seen it on Youtube.
Aside from all the blind "Indi3 L0v3" floating around everything Edmund McMillen does (and eats) I'm pretty positive The Basement Collection can be described in few words, and I allow myself to borrow said few words from FloppiZock's Metacritic review: "A little collection of cute games".
What a lazy cashgrab. You can literally play all these games on Newgrounds for free. All Mr. McMillen did was slap achievements onto them. That's it. They're not even good games. Why would you pay money for this garbage? Stop supporting lazy indie developers!
