Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya has new game coming out in a matter of months. That news alone is sure to give fans of the illustrious one-man development team a strong case of the vapors. His latest creation is Gero Blaster, a run-and-gun action platformer created in the classic style. It even utilizes the old damsel in distress trope. The difference here is that the damsel in Gero Blaster is a cat, and the her boyfriend is a gun-toting frog. It is impossible for me not to love that, and that's without even mentioning the giant smoking purple cat sticking its butt in the air.

It's likely that Gero Blaster will have some ties to Cave Story. There were a couple of very nice Gero/Frog people in that game as well, though they didn't have the steely-eyed, all business look found on the protagonist of this new game. Regardless of how it may be connected to Pixlel's most popular game, Gero Blaster is one to watch for iPhone owners.

On top of that, it looks like Nicalis is already planning to bring the game to the 3DS, as it did with Cave Story, Ikachan and Guxt. That would be my console of choice here. Low-res pixel art in 3D looks amazing, and having a traditional control pad and buttons wouldn't hurt either.

Channel your inner rock star and smash up a hotel in Check-in, Knock-out

Breaking other people's things is expensive. I don't suggest you do it unless you have a lot of money. If you have that itch, a better way to live out the fantasy may be to destroy hotel rooms in Check-in, Knock-out. A newly...more

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more
