Noah More

Super 3D Noah's Ark is done!And what do you know, I actually really enjoyed it. It's a Wolfenstein-era shooter, but somehow this one seems to have aged better than Wolf3D. I think that's partly because it's a later game so had a (marginally) higher resolution, but also because Wolf3D has been superseded by hundreds of other shooters, but there's nothing quite like S3DNA. Sure, it's just a gimmicky reskin, but that completely changes the feel of the game. You're no longer the destroyer of worlds, now you're here to feed the animals and put them to sleep. And that music! Is there anything else so maddeningly jolly? It pulls you bouncing along through the game, accompanying every pop of your catapult and snore of an animal. It was a complete unexpected joy. I don't remember the SNES version having the same feeling at all. Nice and quick, too - I couldn't ask for more.

I'm also really enjoying Fallout Tactics without really expecting to, so two thumbs up for gaming at the moment! Next up on the randometer is...Energie-Manager! Ugh! Apparently it's a German eco-restaurant management game released for free to teach kids about the environment. Hmm. I might not spend long with this one.
