First entry for this blog will be one of the best "Homebrew" NES games made in my humble opinion.
For those of you unfamiliar with the term "Homebrew," it has become a term used to describe independent games released on Nintendo (NES) cartridges. For better or for worse, it is the current term used for games that are made in the modern era. Regardless of names, it is a developing industry and warrants attention.
The Incident, by Khan Games, is a box-pushing puzzle game where you control Sam, a robot in an abandoned warehouse that must push his way out.
The game features over 100 levels and is absolutely addicting. Some people may look at this game and try to generalize it as simple but that is the power of the this game. So when a developer can mask an intense game in an alleged simple framework, it warrants our attention.
The game is nothing short of challenging and intoxicating. In fact, intoxication has helped me out of a few levels that I found myself stuck on sober.
Get the game here...
