This week, I’ll admit I don’t really think that I’m feeling any of the games . Paper Airplane Chase sounds really silly. Unless they fly like paper and get high like planes, the game is unnecessary. Granted it’s only 200 points, so it might work for anyone with extra points and needs something cheap. Something about it’s graphics that are turning me off, and I’m a fan of avant garde type games.
For the rest, it just doesn’t really sound like too much fun. Card Classics sounds like a java game that got converted. Although Nobunaga’s Ambition seems like fun, it probably suffers from the same slow war-sim timing. It’s my choice of the week, but that’s not saying much.
