The Wonderful End of the World
This game features a joyous trek around the Earth to gather everything you can before it's eaten by a demon with a giant fish head. But as a puppet that absorbs all it touches, you can try to rescue as much of Earth's greatness as you can before the end arrives.
In the beginning, you roam the Earth, capable of absorbing only the tiniest of objects. A glass marble you collect becomes your head, and a pair of jellybeans becomes your hands. Small creatures overwhelm you, with rats kicking you around and golden retrievers threatening to stomp you to pieces. But with every object you collect, your puppet self grows larger. Eventually, you'll become a towering behemoth with fire engines for arms and the ability to absorb entire buildings.
The Wonderful End of the World takes you through 12 unique locations, with over a thousand treasures to gather before the end comes. Steal some sweets from the candy store, where gummi fish swim in a blueberry river; visit a surrealist library to find that the words have literally leapt out of their books; and explore the Megalopolis, where you’ll watch a lively end-of-the-world parade and then gobble it up before making your way to grab the tallest skyscraper ever built.
Probe is a strategy board game that pits against the computer. The objective is to capture Probe’s Flag before Probe captures yours. The game board is centered with your piece tray on the left and Probe’s tray on the right. Pieces still on the board display as dimmed in the trays. The identities of Probe’s pieces remain hidden until after it attacks, just as the identities of your pieces remain hidden from Probe. Pieces may not move into the two areas in the center of the board that display as lakes in the game board design shown below.
Piece movement and captures are explained in the Rules of Play but, in general, pieces attack by attempting to occupy the square of the opponent. Captures are determined by the rank of the piece, with lower ranked pieces defeating higher ranked pieces. Notice your Flag is protected by a Bomb shield. You also have a fake Bomb shield in the bottom right corner as a decoy. Mostly likely, Probe’s Flag is also protected by a Bomb shield. Bomb shields are effective because only a Miner can capture a Bomb. As the game progresses, the board thins out from captures, and you will begin to detect patterns among Probe’s remaining pieces.
Inclinerate is an advanced space shooter with new ideas! The year is 2074, and astronomers from around the world watch an asteroid crash into the surface of Mars leaving a huge crater. Clouds of dust and vapor hide the surface of the planet for several long months. Communication with all Martian research stations is lost. When the clouds clear away, people send new spaceships to the Red planet. The spaceships send back shocking news. Hundreds of plants producing arms have been set up on the maimed surface of Mars. Thousands of machines stock the mineral deposits that had been brought to the surface by the massive explosion. A huge geothermal unit is running in the Center of the crater. Its energy creates a protection shield that extends beyond the planet’s atmosphere.
The objective of the unknown aliens is absolutely clear: they’re building an army to conquer the Earth! So people are sending a small spaceship to the Red planet with one mission: blow up the shield generator so they can launch missile attacks from the orbit. The spaceship will have to land in an isolated area, and then try to infiltrate into the alien conspiracy. You are the commander of the spaceship, and the fate of the Earth is in your hands!
