I mentioned I was going to bump up my games completed by jumping on some short ones... and here we are!
18. 140 (PC)
Steam has me listed as 106 minutes to complete this one.... It's a super graphically basic 2D side scrolling game that is music/rhythm based in that the platforms etc all move or appear/disappear in time with the music, and generally each level builds in intensity as it all goes along... I really did enjoy this one.. but it's literally only 4 levels long (originally 3, a 4th was added a few years later) so it's over in a flash.... Technically there is an option to play the levels through without checkpoints... but that WOULD take me hour on hour on hour... and as it's more of a bonus, I didn't bother... I'd recommend this one if it's super cheap, or comes in a bundle like how I got it
19. 198X (PC)
Another super short little game, it only took me 91 minutes according to Steam... This one has a fairly simple story which is wrapped around 5 retro 80's arcade type games... Each one is actually pretty fun to play, but equally extremely short.... I think originally this was supposed to be episodic with extra levels for the arcade games but it doesn't seem to have ever come, but there's pretty solid games in here, a streets of rage clone, r-type clone, outrun clone, and a couple others... I enjoyed it for what it was, but if it was of a decent length it may have gotten boring, not sure!
20. Brothers - A Tale Of Two Sons (PC)
2.8 hours for this one.. so a little more of a game I guess... This is the first game from the guy that did A Way Out and It Takes Two, so co-op is a theme here again, except for this one it's a single player game where you control two brothers at once... It requires a controller and each stick controls one of the brothers.. Often they need to team up to get past obstacles, simple stuff like lifting the younger one up so he can drop down something for the older brother to climb on, or other things like the younger brother not being able to swim, so needing to climb on the older brothers back. All up it's a pretty simple game and story, it uses a made up language like ICO, so you don't know exactly what is being said but it's pretty well implied. All up, was enjoyable, but messed with my head a bit trying to multitask!
