The Free Bundle 8

Taking a very short break with publishing reviews (although writing them at the moment hasn’t stopped, a lot more are coming soon), also because of some personal matters to attend to, the Free Bundle 8 is a nice change of pace with its offering of indie games for nada monies.

This time, non-commercial remakes come in the form of action-platformer MegaMan Unlimited and graphic adventure Space Quest II plus the sort-of remade space-sim-shooter The Last Starfighter (that’s right, the one which plays an enormous part in the movie I already reviewed), aesthetically-similar-to-cel-shading-arcade-game-Jet Set Radio but with a medical roller skating twist CyberMedic and innovative 3D-becomes-2D-puzzle platformer Perspective.

As far as quality is concerned, there’s simply a very satisfying bundle of games here to please even the most critical gamer when it comes to nostalgia or original ideas. Even if the links to the individual titles will be up after the next bundle is online, one shouldn’t wait and miss this nice package of free gaming goodness.

As always, check out the trailers and/or websites for more info and the download links.

About nufafitc

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
