Games Freezer - @thegamedesigner - "Electronic Super Joy" by Michael Todd

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Electronic Super Joy

We stumbled across "Electronic Super Joy" after following Michael Todd on Twitter.

After watching the hypnotic video and listening to the thumping soundtrack, this game is well and truly in the Freezer!


The visuals are simple yet intricate, the design is intriguing and the gameplay looks frenetic yet calming.

We love the look of this game as it looks like a tough as old boots platformer with bags of character.

There's some great phrases that pop up on screen as you advance that seem to be quite abstract but fit in with the overall feel of the demo.

We can't wait to play this..........

and guess what.... it will be available on PC MAC LINUX iPAD and ANDROID

The Website says Coming 2013 ........ when? When!? WHEN!!!!???

Is this your kind of Game?

What do you think of the trailer?

Can anyone tell us when this gem of a game is coming OUT?!!

Play Skee-Ball using Chrome on a Computer & Mobile device 

So here we have a game that utilises Google Chrome on a Computer and a Mobile Device.
The game itself runs solely from the Google Chrome Browser. 

At first maybe this doesn't seem so great, especially as the game is "Skeet-Ball" , but we think this could be a really great leap forward in Mobile / Online Gaming.

Imagine using your mobile to play a bit of online lunch-time tennis.

Read the article below and let us know what games you would like to see adopt this control method?

Arcade Cabinets Are a Thing of Beauty


The sight of your favourite arcade machine standing there gleaming and waiting to be played can send shivers down your spine as you search for your £1 coin to get some credits to play.

The Arcade Man appreciates the beauty of the classic arcade machines and sets about bringing these beauties back to their former glory.

The Arcade Man website is a homage to the passion of the Arcade Man as he details each step and mod that he undertakes to make these beauties gleam again they way they should do.

Just looking through The Arcade Man's website makes us want to get down to the seaside and rescue some of the neglected  Arcade cabinets from yesteryear and restore them with the love and attention that Arcade Man does.

This guy is a hero of gaming and especially retro arcade gaming.

Arcade Man, GamesFreezer salutes you and your work!

Please check out Arcade Man's Website below and see for yourself the beauty of his work. Just take a look at that beautiful Mortal Kombat Machine......FLAWLESS VICTORY!

I often think, if only we had the room........

If only we had the room to buy all the consoles and computers we have owned over the years and maybe some of the ones we didn't own!

So that got me thinking, would I be able to remember the machines I had bought?

If only I had the room and the plug sockets to buy them all again!

XBOX ONE

XBOX ONE

So Microsoft have had the gaming world's eyes on them today in order to unveil the next generation of XBOX.

The so called XBOX-ONE is now unveiled.

In our opinion the design seems a little bulky, but hey isn't that always the way so a year later Microsoft can bring out the "XBOX-ONE Slim" or are we just too cynical here in the Freezer?

Anyway, Wired.Com got first dibs on the Exclusive first look at the XBOX ONE so click on the link and see what the good people of Wired have to say about the Big Black Box.


So what are your first impressions of this Next Generation Bohemoth?

Games Freezer - The Not Very Current TOP 5 List of the Video Games Of 2013 So Far....

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On


The Most Amazing Box Of Games Since Metal Gear Solid Got Stuck In Our ICE BOX!

The Games Freezer Top 5 Video Games List of 2013....So Far

 
As we near the middle of 2013 we have started to compile a list of the games we have been playing so far in 2013.
It's a list that we have compiled ONLY using games that we have actually played this year and they wont necessarily will have been released this year either.
So here goes.....
 
  1. The Orange Box (X360)

    This collection of games is a masterpiece of gaming. 
    It includes the Daddy of First Person Shooters (3 episodes) , the Daddy of Multiplayer along with the most innovative puzzler in years! 
    We managed to pick this up second hand for £10. 
    Five amazing games for £10....if you havn't already done so BUY IT NOW!
     
  2. Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (X360)

     

    Being a massive fan of open world RPG's we had been meaning to invest in this game for an absolute age! 

    Then one day whilst sifting through the bargain bucket in Blockbuster, there it was for £12, so we began to invest a few hours, days and weeks (and counting) into this mammoth game. 

    It's a top quality game that still looks fresh after 5 years. 
    The levelling up of enemies in line with your level is rather annoying however, the game in general is a triumph....Try it you will love it 
     
  3. Super Stickman Golf (Android/iOS)

     


    We were finding that there was a distinct lack of good golf games on the Android platform and then along came the iPhone smash hit Super Stickman Golf which as much a puzzle game as it is a golf game. 

    With Par 10 holes on some courses its a game that doesn't take itself seriously, but shouldn't be overlooked in any way as it grips you with its mix of tactics and good fun. 

    The power ups are brilliant and are unlocked as you progress. We paid 69p for it and it brightens up the commute into work every morning....A Great Mobile Game 

    (also watch out for Super Stickman Golf 2)

     

  4. FIFA 12 (PS3)

     


    We hadn't invested our hard earned cash into a footy title since PES became rubbish about 5 years ago, then we played an old copy of FIFA 11 around a friends house this year and thought hang on, THIS IS FUN!!  

    So as soon as FIFA 12 hit the bargain buckets we bought it and loved it immediately. 

    Lots has been written about this game and the EA way of minor updates to the game each year rather than genuinely improving the game. 

    In this version, the developers put their neck on the line slightly by changing the defending to a much tougher system and even though it takes a while to get used to, its made the game more of a challenge, so much so that you genuinely celebrate each goal you score out loud!! (or is that just me?!)

    You never know, we like the game so much, we might actually buy the latest version! (second hand of course)

    5. Heavy Rain (PS3) 

    Wow! What a game, like nothing you have ever played before. 
    From the start you are put into a situation that is quite alien to most gamers, you are asked to brush your characters teeth and then get them into the shower, from here on in your character's life spirals out of control and thrusts you into a world where nothing seems as it is. 
    You get to play as various characters through the plot and it genuinely throws up a massive twist in the story late on.While not without its niggly parts, it is truly a genuine advancement in computer games and what we perceive them to be

    So, there it is, not a very current but a very enjoyable Top 5!
    Have a think about your top games of 2013 so far....
    Let us know your current or not so current faves of 2013

    UNTIL NEXT TIME......TRY NOT TO GET LOCKED IN THE GAMES FREEZER*!

☆ An Ode To The SNES ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

SNES

Before my first SNES in 1991 I was brought into the world of video games from owning my trusty and often amazing Atari 800 XE/XL. The thing I loved about the 800 XE/XL was the fact that it had a cartridge slot! 

To me at that point in time the cartridge slot was the most amazing invention, it meant INSTANT GAMES!

Games Freezer - Top 5 Video Games Of All Time

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Games Freezer
Everybody knows that this is an impossible task and one task that takes full concentration in order to distill 25 years worth of games playing into 5 all time great titles!

You may call us crazy but we have only gone and attempted it!

Having looked at all the machines we have played since 1979 we have pulled out the 5 games that have immersed us and pulled us into their grasp which has meant countless hours of gameplay have been poured into these 5 amazing games. 

Of course with only 5 Video Games spots to fill there are countless great games that didn't make the Games Freezer Top 5!

So here goes.......... 

5. NBA Jam Tournament Edition (Arcade) 

The game that made me into an Arcade junkie! I remember once taking a train with mates all the way to Brighton just to go and find the NBA Jam Tournament Edition Arcade box and play the 4 Player mode.......what a game....so much fun with your mates. Bought it recently on the PS3 still loads of fun!


4. Metal Gear Solid (PS1)

A game that took my breath away. This was miles ahead of its time and like nothing else i'd seen before. The storyline and presentation was like a movie and the gameplay was ingenius! It really felt like you were an undercover operative sneaking about and disposing of enemy security guards with sneak attacks. I still own a copy of this as I can't bear to part with it!


3. Super Mario Kart (SNES) 

This game remained firmly lodged in my SNES until the time I sold it. Battle Mode was amazing and me and my friends actually created our own Battle Mode league complete with balloon difference points for the amount of balloons left on your Kart at the end of the match.


2. Fallout 3 (X360)

From the moment you step out of the Post Apocalyptic Vault and into the Wasteland, you are consumed by this game, over 100 hours of game time and I enjoyed every minute of it. A truly epic game.


1. Sensible Soccer (Amiga)

Over the years I have played many many football games and it was always the aim to play games that realistically simulated the beautiful game however, Sensible Soccer was a different breed , it's goal was to create a fun experience that could be played again and again and again and again and again. My personal favourite was scoring a diving header from the edge of the area with my microscopic player. A game that made me smile and still does. (closely followed by Sensible World Of Soccer)




So......Over to you.....
Are you up to the challenge of creating your own Top 5 All Time Video Games List?
It's a tough task and the GAMES FREEZER wants to know how you get on with compiling your Video Games List!

Games Freezer - Breaking News - Next Gen Free To Play

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
We are not great fans of the Free To Play in game micro transactions model,  but it seems that #Microsoft and #Sony are. 

Not sure what this means for Next Gen Consoles.  Hopefully we don't see a glut of greedy publishers who fill their games full of the necessity to purchase a zillion in game items in order to truly progress in their games. As we have seen this many many times on the Mobile Platform.

We prefer the idea that the best mobile games follow,  which is to price the game at a reasonable price and then video games players will purchase the game if it is good enough. We have purchased many games from the #GooglePlay Store that have been great and were only 69p!

Are you a fan of the Free To Play Model?

Do you want to see it become an integral part of the Next-Generation of Consoles?

Commodore 64
The Marvelous C64 Endings Website
Back in the days of rock hard video games that just didn't want to let you beat them an ending was truly the holy grail for any gamer. 

Back then there was no internet walk-throughs and gamers had to hope that the game they were stuck on would appear in the hints & tips section of their favourite video games magazine. 

Some games didn't even end and just got harder and harder without letting gamers complete them! 

We have discovered a website which focuses on the Commodore 64 and lets you view endings from over 700 C64 games.

We checked out the ending to one of our favourite games, Midnight Resistance and was glad to see the ending was one of peace, love and harmony.

Take a look a look for yourself at the Commodore 64 Game Endings website and look up your fave C64 Game Ending.

Did it end how you expected it to?

Did it end at all?

The Ascii art Candy Merchant has a striking resemblance to Gene Wilder in Charlie & The Chocolate factory if you squint and use your imagination a bit!

In this wonderfully addictive browser based Ascii art video game you will be using your imagination quite a lot just like we all used to when we were 9 years old playing the likes of Zork and Pitfall.

If this game came on a cassette I can imagine the box art to be of the candy merchant ready to serve you with candies, lollipops and errrrr Swords!
