BoxPlots

BoxPlots takes an overdone format and adds charm, character and a smidge of originality, resulting in a very pleasant puzzler.

There’s replay value for its target market, but the means to challenge other people’s robots would be a huge improvement.

Bee Leader

Bee Leader

A charming, challenging experience that’s slightly marred by twitchy controls. It’s a certainly a looker, but lacks a killer sting.

Ballistic SE

Ballistic SE

It’s shy of a few play modes and lacking visual diversity, but Ballistic SE makes some fine tweaks to the twin-stick shooter genre.
