Bundle In A Box - Capsule Computers Indie Bundle

So Bundle-in-a-box has packaged the following games for pay-what-you-want-starting-at-a-buck. Super Tower Rush, Hacker Evolution Untold, Pixelry, and The Blackwell Series.

If you don’t already have the Blackwell Series, they are the finest point and click games I have played in recent years. These alone make this bundle worth it.

Also included is Super Tower Rush (pictured), which is a split screen platformer currently being sold on Desura. This is a really great game which I was lucky enough to pick up from a while back on the cheap.

Go check out Bundle-in-a-box and grab one while you still can.

Fighting is accomplished by swiping over the enemies, and the character will run over and execute an attack. Two finger swipes execute a combo and a swipe+holding the end motion executes a charged attack.

I have been really hoping for a while for Wizardry to be available again somewhere so I’m pretty psyched to play those again. So having seen that, I’m going to gush about
Wizardry a bit.

So the first package they have on sale contains Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge, and Wizardry 7: Crusaders of the Dark Savant. I never got to play Bane of the Cosmic Forge, but I did find it complete in box at the used book store about 15 years ago for two bucks. The disks didn’t work but I held onto the box for a long time simply because

Wolfenstein Reboot Trailer

Saw this while on vacation. They could never duplicate the impact of the older Wolf games, but it still looks like it could be a fun game.
