I *never* get to the credits of video games. Ever. I am very comfortable letting them go if I get to a spot that’s just too hard, but when this one made my head hurt I just looked up the answer and kept moving forward. I loved it.
Three years I let this thing just sit, unplayed. Three years! I’m glad I picked it up again.
I do enjoy a fun font.
I really like the rotating score value for the pockets as you sink balls. It makes you look for shots you wouldn’t normally take. Same for the challenge modes in there. They keep the game interesting where a flat, one-player billiard sim might get boring.
A couple of control quibbles aside, I can heartily recommend Pocket Run as a fun arcade-y pool game.
I took advantage of an Amazon sale of $1 Marvel collections to check out reading comics on the kindle. It’s been a really great experience.
The video above is from The Vision:The Complete Series and is an example of how the kindle app slides around a full- or splash-page layout. The way the app slides from frame-to-frame is slick, too.
You can pry my LCS from my cold, dead hands but comics on the kindle is an easy way to catch up on things I wouldn’t otherwise read.
Caught a weird glitch in Alto’s Odyssey after an awkward crash. It just kept shaking and shaking.
Unlocked the last character, though, which is new for me.
I can’t believe I haven’t talked about this here. I’ve been playing the jeepers out of this game for a couple of years. And now I’m at the end. It’s a surprisingly great feeling.
This is a good read if you’re a fan of the game. It talks about the guy behind the game, Justin Smith, and his decision to make the game beatable for the unlucky players who had come up against Impossible Holes (of which I was one).
I’m irrationally excited at getting to the end. 11,100+ holes.
