Review: Proun
by Allistair Pinsof

Just look at those balls! Those beautiful, magnificent balls, zipping through those abstract planes of color and geometric shapes! 

Proun is a beautiful and clever visual feast that deserves to be displayed in a museum -- what’s that? You say it already has been shown in museums in the Netherlands and France? But that doesn’t really matter to us, the unruly consumers who play competitive, strategic games on the toilet with our iPhones. To us, what matters is whether the game deserves to be on our desktop at all.

Is the “pay-what-you-want” price tag, 350 megabytes worth of space, and five seconds it takes to navigate to Proun’s download link worth it?

Let’s go balls deep with this peculiar, self-proclaimed racing game and find out.

I bet you want to give free indie game The Wager a try

Indie dev Surprised Man created its game The Wager as part of the 72-hour Ludum Dare game jam in December, and has since been expanding on it for an official release. It's an exploration game in which you explore islands in t...

Free App of the Day: Super Blast

Super Blast 2 is out on iTunes, but if you want a slightly different version for free, then get the original. Super Blast costs nothing today, and you might like it! Judging the game based on Super Blast 2, these titles are s...

Fishing Master now available for iPhone, totally free

Laugh if you must, but I love Fishing Master. Lord knows I have taken abuse for it before. But its charm and gameplay are worth more than anybody who would mock me for enjoying them. And now it'll be even easier for me to tak...

Cave Story WiiWare dev - 'I want to make more Cave Story'

Near the end of my TGS time in Tokyo, I was lucky enough to meet up with Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis, Inc. You know Tyrone. He's the guy who helped bring Cave Story to WiiWare, and thank the Lord, it sounds like he's still w...

pOnd is like flOw and flOwer but much more awesOme

Do you miss Reverend Anthony? I sure do. Like with .Tiff, what he provided for Destructoid could never be replaced. I still read his Twitter though, which might be as close as I'm going to get to seeing him write for Dtoid ag...

E3 10: Browser-based Fantasy Football with Quickhits

Quickhit Football was a weird game for me to play. As someone who doesn't really pay much attention to football, a game that acts as a fusion between fantasy football and and RPG is great for fans, but not quite for me. Howev...

Mega Man 8 fan-made demake free for the playing

Every once and a while, people take a crack at Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 by saying they look like "fan-made projects". Thing is, that's not the most effective insult. Technically speaking, Cave Story is a "fan-made project",...

Can't talk now, playing Infectonator: World Dominator

Wave goodbye to the rest of your weekend. Infectonator: World Dominator is a game about destroying the world with a zombie apocalypse. It's less of a thinky-thinky kind of apocalypse, though, and more of a clicky-clicky one: ...

The less you know before playing Cream Wolf, the better

Roughly 90% of Cream Wolf's charm comes from discovering what the game is actually about, so I'll leave you to it. For the sake of making this news post more than a single sentence, though, I'll point out that it was made by PixelJam and messhof. Those guys are good at making games. Now, go play Cream Wolf.

Lewis Carroll + Gorillaz + Warioware = Record Tripping

Cool. As much as I'm a fan of straining weird analogies, there isn't a single one to be found in this post's title: Record Tripping is quite literally (A) made up of minigames, (B) set to a simultaneous soundtrack of Gorillaz...

The Spirit Engine 2 now available for free

If you're into story-based RPGs, listen well: The Spirit Engine 2, formerly $10 (and before that, formerly $18) is now free. Even as someone who doesn't really dig dialogue-heavy RPGs, there's some interesting stuff here. You...

Command and Conquer Classics gives you C&C for free

While it's hard to believe that the "conclusion" of a franchise as storied and long running as Command & Conquer is not the biggest RTS release of the year, it's still kind of a big deal. To celebrate this big deal EA has...

Another TIGSource.com competition is complete, and now the rest of us have at least ten new indie games to waste a few hours with. We've reported on the Assemblee Competition before (short version: artists created sprites wit...

Interstellar Marines is both innovative and unoriginal

I'm torn. On the one hand, indie title Interstellar Marines has one of the coolest development structures I've yet seen. Leading up to an eventual release of a full game, the team is releasing small, free, playable previews t...

Only super-cool dudes can beat Flood the Chamber

About twenty minutes ago, the headline to this post would have been something along the lines of, "whomever made Flood the Chamber can go f*ck himself and die because he's a bad person and he caused me emotional pain," but I'...
