Despite lots of delays of many AAA games this year, I feel like 2021 has been pretty good for indie games of all sizes. This round-up has a few more that I think are worth highlighting.
Super Arcade Football
A couple of weeks back we got the chance to ask some questions to the developers behind Super Arcade Football. We’ve also been playing the game itself and it is a lot of fun.
Super Arcade Football aims to take you back to the classic age of football games. The top-down view and simple visual style like Sensible Soccer all those years ago is an undoubted influence. This simple to pick up game is a lot of fun both on your own and with others. Although I did find that the online side was a little laggy. I’m not sure what was causing the lag, but it did hamper the enjoyment somewhat.
That being said, solo play both through the story and the casual modes is good fun. It’s super easy to pick up with one button pretty much doing everything in the game. Then there are the modifiers that provide more fun, variety, and laughs. With meteor showers, ice, oil patches, and more you can create quite a lot of havoc when playing. Which obviously makes the game more enjoyable.
If you’re into your retro-style video games then Super Arcade Football is definitely one you should check out.
Having spent some time in early access Grim Earth is getting close to its full release, which all being well should be the 14th of October. However, seeing as it’s being developed by one person, that could change.
Grim Earth is an action platformer with some elements of puzzle-solving. It has an excellent style and a good sense of humour too. Set 5000 years in the future Earth has become a very different place. Explore the lands, take on challenges and upgrade your skills to seek out new secrets.
It’s a really fun little adventure that can have some tricky surprises for you if you’re not careful. After all the planet has been overrun by alien fauna and flora.
