Very Quick Tips: Deception IV: Blood Ties

Deception IV is a unique release, mainly due to the fact that there aren't many trap-setting games on the market in general. Because of that, it's often hard for people to acclimate if they've never played a past entry before (Trapt is on the PSN, by the way) -- so here are some tips to help you along.

Review: Deception IV: Blood Ties
by Chris Carter

The Deception franchise is a series I wish more people were aware of. Although the concept of a character that can't physically defend themselves isn't typically a popular go-to mechanic, this survival horror-like idea is turned on its head with the existence of deadly traps.

There's something soothing about setting up a ridiculously elaborate Goldbergian machine and unleashing it upon your foes that's insanely satisfying, and Deception IV is no exception. In fact, it may be the best and bloodiest entry yet.

Review: Castle Doombad
by Chris Carter

On a daily basis we get notices for a host of mobile game launches -- usually the week of. Most of them are unassuming, and since there are so many titles, it's tough to sift through the pile and find the real gems that are worth covering.

When Destructoid CEO Hamza Aziz sent Castle Doombad across my desk, even with the Adult Swim name, I wasn't drawn to it. Six hours later I lost track of time -- it was 2AM, and I had been playing Castle Doombad nonstop.

This is a gem, folks.

The joy of traps photo
The joy of traps
by Chris Carter

When you think of the word "trap," what's the first thing that comes to mind? If your psyche isn't in the darkest depths of the catacombs, you're probably thinking of a mechanical device with the purpose of inflicting harm up on another entity. How could that not bring joy to your heart?

For some reason, the prospect of out-crafting other AI and unsuspecting players cures me like a Black Forest ham. There's a certain sense of accomplishment in luring people into traps that virtual shooting, stabbing, punching, or any form of maiming can't replicate. It's a shame that there aren't more trap-setting games, because playing them is one of my greatest joys in gaming.
