Well, as a side effect of being a mexican, I'm poor. This means that I must get my gaming fix from either pirating software and/or Indie games. And that's pretty much why I'm starting this section called "Indie Game of the Now", where I'll post links to independent video games that I like every now and then. Some are really old (like this one) and some will be bleeding edge new.
Noitu Love by Joakim Sandberg
The year is 2188. The city is protected by an organization called "The Peacekeepers League" and everything is swell except for that it's under attack. By a robot army lead by professor Darnacus Damnation!
This game is an action packed adventure of several long levels (with save feature) and you play as Noitu Love, a young and talented boy, who's purpose it is in life to stop Darnacus and live up to his intercom girl Lori's expectations.
6 levels, 5 difficulties and several unlockables are to be found, and you'll play as four different characters.
Joakim Sandberg's noitu love will be a familiar experience for anyone who has played any old megaman game. As the description in the site says, the game is a fast action packed adventure, with some classic platform elements (like collecting vials of acid to obtain another man... ...). The music is very retro, may annoy some people, but personally I loved it.
One thing that makes this game fun is the personality of the bosses, each boss has a different personality which is sometimes the key to defeat them. Noitu can transform into different things to solve clever puzzles: a monkey for hard-to-reach things, a genius to work with computers or a bird to fly around.
Here's a video of the game in insane mode with some dude narrating:
The game is relatively easy in the beginning but the unlockable difficulty levels are challenging, it's entertaining. To try it, get over here.
As an added bonus, here's a video of the upcoming Noitu Love 2, faster and more action packed.
