This week we're taking gaming back to a simpler time with fantasy platformer Emberwind, finding out what games got you through Thanksgiving weekend, and finding out what games get you in the holiday spirit.
Fantasy platformer Emberwind kicks it old school - it's a lushly illustrated, 2D side-scroller in the tradition of all our 16-bit favorites. Does it only have nostalgia on its side or does it have the gameplay to make it a must-have?
Emberwind - Mac/Windows, Platformer, TimeTrap, $12
#3 - Pumpkin Patch: PC, Arena Shooter, Pixel Licker
#2 - RIFT: Flash, Platformer, Candystand
Suggested by: Jan R
#1 - rComplex: PC, Platformer, Roger Hicks/Brian T.
