If you are anything like me and have a Steam account, then you have a ton of games that you own, but haven’t actually played. Now I decided that since I should probably address some of these games collecting virtual dust in my library and test some of them out. Don’t worry though, I was still making sure to shiny hunt too. Can’t let that go to the wayside. Although since a lot of games were mentioned during the Nintendo Direct yesterday, I seem to be running out of time. With all that being said, here are the games I have managed to get to thus far.
Have you ever looked at a game in your library and can’t get any sense for what it was about? That what this game was for me. I kind of had to just jump in and figure it out. Basically the game is kind of like Tetris, except instead of creating a Tetris, you create these boxes and you can make the box bigger by adding more pieces to increase your multiplier. Personally, it didn’t really click with me. However, I’m not really a big fan of Tetris to begin with so I guess that is to be expected.
This is a game that my friends gifted to me recently. Honestly, at least half of my backlog is my friends gifting me random games, but this is one of the more recent editions. They mentioned that it wasn’t a very long game, so I figured I would give it a go. It is a puzzle game where your goal is simply to move your character to the end goal. The key is to change your perspective on how paths work and moving objects to give yourself a path. It was a nice time. I only got stuck on puzzles twice and I still only took about two and a half hours to finish every puzzle in the game. Apparently there is a sequel to this game, so I might check it out at some point.
Divide by Sheep
Of the games I played, this is the one I spent the most time on. The game has a very simple premise. The Grim reaper seemed bored so he decided to have some sheep killed to play with them in the afterlife. At least I think that is what’s happening. The game itself is just a puzzle game that requires you to insert the correct amount of sheep into a lifeboat. If you put too many in the lifeboat will sink. There are three objectives you can meet in each level. Each objective met nets you a star for a total of three per level. Once you collect a certain amount of stars then you can unlock the next world.
I have been enjoying this one because it makes me think. Sometimes it can be very difficult to figure out how to meet certain quotas with the resources available. After all, you only have so many potential sheep to save so sometimes you need to get creative. My only problem is that sometimes the difficulty is all over the place. For instance, I thought that the second world was more difficult then the third world. There are also certain levels that take me a few seconds, while some can take me over fifteen minutes to figure out. However, the game is still entertaining. there is one other thing. The game is called Divide by Sheep and they mean it literally. Do not play it if you aren’t prepared to have a few sheep sacrificed for the greater good.
That is pretty much all I had time for in addition to normal shiny hunting in Pokémon Violet. Part of the reason is due to my body’s need for sleep which is something I unfortunately cannot do anything about, yet. The other part is because I decided to work on something related to my shiny hunt in Pokémon Violet. I will probably make some sort of announcement about that tomorrow. For now though, I hope you have a good night and see you next week! Well, not counting the announcement.
