GameJam - Willy Beamish Part 3

This is the part of the Willy Beamish play through and thank god for that.  I am on vacation so I lifted my two hour time limit to beat the game.  It took me two hours to get to a point where I found out I couldn't proceed.  After nearly 20 minutes of frustration, I switched to the superior PC version and it took me an hour to beat the game.

GVN Quick Pick Round 4!

It's been a long time since I have done one of these. So here are two games I think you should definitely check out. I am not going to limit it to one system like I have in the past with each Quick Pick. Let's Begin.


Implosion: Never Lose Hope
Nintendo Switch


Implosion is a hack 'n' slash action game that was ported from iOS and Android systems.  The gist of the game is that humanity had escaped to the stars after the XADA came out of nowhere and nearly wiped them out.  Now humanity uses War-mechs to take on the XADA and ensure the survival of the human race.  Implosion is a very simplistic action game with two attack buttons and special attacks that can be registered to an assigned button.  You even have a dodge that allows you to evade some nasty attacks.  Combat and controls are relatively smooth for the most part.  There are times when you might get stuck in an attack animation and cant dodge a crushing boss attack.
