We attempt to cowl each Change sport we’re despatched a code for right here at Gamezebo. Generally we discover ourselves with a little bit of a backlog although – like proper now for example.
So listed below are some shorter evaluations of video games launched or up to date on the Change over the previous few months – that we would not have gotten spherical to masking in any other case.
My Brother Ate My Pudding!
A sequel of types to the Mother Hid My Sport titles, this one arguably steps over the road from being an amusing joke to one thing a bit crueller.
Successfully a quite simple environmental puzzler, you might be tasked with 30 tiny levels the place the target is all the time the identical – conceal out of your sister. As you ate her pudding. Naturally.
The puzzles are sometimes solved utilizing weird strategies, and often contain manipulating the threadbare rooms in a spread of inventive methods.
Sadly the options are sometimes unimaginable to determine with out quite a lot of trial and error, and restarts take a little bit too lengthy – the cutscenes and fail screens drag on a bit too a lot. Because of this what must be a lightweight and breezy title can typically really feel a bit an excessive amount of like a slog.
In case you deal with My Brother Ate My Pudding as an interactive jokebook it’s advantageous – however as a sport it doesn’t fairly work.

A Sketchbook About Her Solar
A Sketchbook About Her Solar is fantastically introduced, however sadly it’s barely a sport – we’d argue it shouldn’t be offered as a sport within the first place.
You management the actions of Lucia on this vaguely interactive 30 minute title – a lady who has escaped a long-term relationship and now resides in a small city.
She is making an attempt to lose herself in her artwork however can’t assist pondering of the previous. The place you are available in is by often choosing one in every of two choices – and typically just one – to assist create poems on the finish of every part.
Every phase relies round tracks from an album from band Crimson Ribbon, and the music is nice – however you merely don’t get a lot out of this a participant.
There’s no actual improvement in the principle character or the overarching narrative, and all of it feels a little bit aimless. Lovely, however aimless.
Rating: 2.5 out of 5
Slipstream is a retro fashion racer, and so it actually has to go some to face out from what’s a really aggressive area. So it’s to its credit score that it does handle to do fairly a couple of issues in another way to its friends. Some work higher than others.
Its closest comparability is Outrun, with its quick 2D backgrounds and branching paths – though not like Outrun every path takes you to a special character to race, from mouthy punks to Bob Ross homages (no, we’re unsure why both).
The motion is quick, the controls are responsive, and there’s an enormous quantity of content material to get by means of – particularly contemplating the affordable price-point.
In case you’ve already exhausted the Change’s premium retro racers then Slipstream is nicely price a runaround.

A Musical Story
A Musical Story can be divisive, however right here at Gamezebo we thought it was a massively spectacular rhythm motion title – with some caveats after all.
Boasting a laid-back vibe you play as a band setting out on the highway in the direction of a competition, and the adventures you stand up to on the way in which.
Arrange into story centered episodes that should be performed so as, the attraction is the way in which the degrees move – with vibrant and attention-grabbing animation used all through.
We discovered A Musical Story straightforward to lose ourselves in, regardless of the issue. Others is probably not so forgiving, however when you’re in search of a brand new rhythm motion title on your Change that is an virtually important buy.
