|Life Blood by Dean Giberson|
For this final feature, I went through the current list of (476) games on onegameamonth.com, starting from the bottom, and worked my way up the list until I found a game that really "spoke" to me. The game I choose is Life Blood by Dean Giberson.
In Life Blood, you fill a measuring cup by catching drops of blood. Once the cup is full, you pour the blood into the heart and start again. The game is over when the timer in the upper right corner of the screen reaches 0.
The controls are intuitive and responsive, the sounds simple yet effective and the design quite pleasing to the eye. Game play is very straightforward and the difficulty level very easy.
In fact, the only critiques I have for the game is that it's too easy. There is no difficulty ramp at all and very little challenge as the drops of blood fall at the same steady rate throughout the game. Saying that, it's still a good game (I wouldn't have spent nearly 20 minutes playing it otherwise) and enjoyable to play.
