Back in the heady summer climes of July I took a few minutes from my busy schedule of picnics and perambulating up and down the promenade to tell you about a couple of games from Rob Fearon’s Bagful of Wrong, War Twat and SYNSO (Squid Yes! Not So Octopus). Re-reading my spotlight piece I think I was quite taken with both games, despite being really quite terrible at them. They boasted ferocious difficulty, derived as much from idiosyncratic control schemes as the sheer number of enemies on-screen at any one time, not to mention the flashy modern visual effects of SYNSO.
I’ve played both games a bit more since, but my scores haven’t improved by much. The more things change, huh?
Fortunately I’m not here today to embarrass myself with high scores. Today I’m here to tell you a little about a couple more titles from the Bagful of Wrong, just on the off chance you’ve not yet invested in a clutch of videogames sufficiently indie to offer an “I’m Skint” edition for the whopping price of $4.
