Triblaster is a blast from the past, reviewed

BulkyPix takes another trip down memory lane with the shooting gallery game Triblaster. For those who spent some time in the arcades back in the day, Triblaster is an obvious homage to the Atari classic Tempest.

The obvious exception to the throwback design are the really cool looking interstellar background images.

The Bridge is part MC Escher’s doodles, part side scroller, and all addicting

The Bridge is a little bit sketchbook, a little bit MC Escher, a little bit crazy. It’s sort of a sideways scroller, but there are two twists that make the game particularly notable.

Second, the entire three dimensional world has been flattened into two impossible dimensions, leaving you to figure out how to navigate not only your character, but also manipulate objects both good and bad.
