Telltale's excellent 'The Wolf Among Us' concludes this week, while one of gaming's most enduring games comes to the PS4.
It can't be said enough, Telltale Games 'The Wolf Among Us' had a rocky start, but now, heading into the fifth and final episode of the season, it's poised to be an all-time great. Everything, all the death, the fights, the fantastic depravity- has been leading up to 'The Wolf Among Us: Cry Wolf,' and for anyone who has been waiting, now is the time to experience being the big bad in 'The Wolf Among Us.'
'Another World,' aka 'Out of This World,' was well ahead of its time 1991. Part adventure game and part platformer, the game is both a wondrous sci-fi journey rarely aspired to in games and a challenging game in its own right. Players must navigate levels while facing punishing enemies and puzzles that refuse to fit any exact mold. This is the console port of the 20th Anniversary version that has been out on PC for awhile, and Xbox One just recently. You can switch on the fly between original and retouched visuals, sound, and even difficulty. This game is featured quite rightly at the MOMA, and for those interested in something both ahead of its time and yet persistently relevant, it's a must.
'MouseCraft' is very much a 'Lemmings' meets 'Tetris' type of game, and it's been in Steam Early Access since last year so it should have grown beyond the pitfalls common to PC puzzlers. You play as the crazed scientist cat, and you must get the mice through each one of your rather dangerous experiments. This could be a real blast, and a great game to exercise the mind while saving mice.
From the iPad realm, comes 'Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death,' a game built around the misdeeds of a Succubus. It's a puzzler with a heavy gothic theme, that may be really fun in spite of simple click nature.
