#ScreenshotSaturday favourites

Welcome back guys and dolls, for another fun packed edition of my #ScreenshotSaturday favourites. This week we’ve got a bit of variety for you from a retro-styled top-down racer to a game about Koalas riding trains.

First up it’s time to check out Mini Pico Racers. Developed by Josep Monzonis, this fun looking top-down racer which is his first ever game on Steam, follows in the footsteps of games like Mantis Burn Racing in paying tribute to the top-down racers of the 80s and 90s like the ever so popular Micro Machines series. For his #ScreenshotSaturday submission this week, Jason has released a new lengthy trailer showing off all the great work he has done and also new modes that he has introduced to his game like Battle Mode and Soccer Mode. The second of the two, in particular, looks interesting as it’s like a much more simple version of Rocket League which means I don’t have to worry about people air-dribbling past me anymore, although at the moment there are only plans for this to be two-player. But who knows what the future holds.

Our second game featured today is one that gave me an unexpected nostalgia trip to a game I played in my childhood that I had long forgotten about until now. The game in question is called Retro Run and is developed by Nucleon Studios, and very much reminds me of a 90s game I played on the original PlayStation called Pepsi Man. Similar in style to modern mobile titles like Temple Run, the idea of Retro Run is that you keep running until you can run no further, collecting what looks like batteries and jumping over obstacles. And if you hadn’t guessed from its name, the game is retro themed. Now if I can just find a copy of Pepsi Man on eBay, life will be complete.

 

And finally this week we have a #ScreenshotSaturday submission from Borderline Games who have created a game for Pixel Challenge 2018 that has me wondering what is going on in the heads of those developers. Koalanarchy sees Koalas riding trains, through a city, into each other, until one of their trains is completely gone. A bizarre concept to say the least but one which looks extremely fun. And is it just us, or does the beginning of this trailer for it reminds you of the PowerPuff Girls?

 

And that wraps up this week’s #ScreenshotSaturday favourites. Make sure you give all the devs a follow to keep up-to-date with all their upcoming games and come back again next week to see a whole new bunch of featured indie developers.
