Riff could be a really shitty game. You might refer to it as completely unremarkable and emotionally paralytic. I wouldn’t even call it a great amount of fun, not compared to the standards that some free games have. You might also want to mute the game, because the music is annoyingly characteristic, you cannot mute it and plays on a goddamn loop. Simply, it doesn’t do a great deal new or well. What it does do is take the kind of fast-paced puzzle solving that you might get from games like Audiosurf and Bejewelled, and presents it in a clinical environment for short bursts of entertainment.
It’s the kind of game you put on for 5 minutes on the bus or while you’re waiting for something to download. You can get it here. You might like it a little bit. I think this is possibly the worst article I’ve ever written. Even worse than that fucking pub joke. Don’t ask.
