Teeworlds – the retro multiplayer shooter

You would be forgiven for making the assumption that Teeworlds is another online golfing game, given its name. In actual fact, teesworlds is a free multiplayer game that gives you the ability to go head-to-head with as many as 16 other players. Teeworlds offers a great level of variation via several game modes that include ‘team deathmatch’ and ‘capture the flag’. With the additional option to design your own maps, Teeworlds is a free game that promises a fair bit.

Upon playing the game, it is hard not to draw direct comparisons with Worms which, in itself was a latter-day version of Lemmings, and that’s without even mentioning Angry Birds. Teeworlds is great to play ‘straight out of the box’, with a level of intuitiveness that allows the user to throw his or herself straight in there. Once the general idea has been picked up, it then becomes possible to start thinking tactics, and strategy.

With a learning curve so small as to be pretty much flat, and no associated cost, it’s hard to find any valid reason against downloading Teeworlds – particularly given the amount of rainy lunch hours you’ve got coming your way. Give it a try. Even if it’s just half an hour you get out of it, it wouldn’t have cost you a penny.

Slender: The Eight Pages Review

Slender: The Eight Pages is the latest release by Mark Hadley, alias AgentParsec. It’s billed as a short horror game in which you’re alone in a dark wood, searching for messages scattered around the trackless forest.

And that’s exactly what it is, sadly.

After ten minutes of trudging around the forest, the screen fizzled and a rather portly, monochrome figure appeared for a moment. Game Over.

OK, that can’t be it, can it? Unfortunately, yes it can. On the second try I was slightly more successful; I found two of the eight pages before the overweight Slender Man had his supernatural way. Not wishing to spoil the game for fans of the genre I’ll say that there is a way to prolong your survival, but I’ll leave you to work out what it is.

The Slender Man meme has proliferated virally, and the concept of this impossibly tall, thin and faceless figure, glimpsed as a black shadow in the corner of the eye has undeniable horror potential. There’s a strong hint of Blair Witch in the videos to be found on YouTube, and the number of followers suggests that this is a cult that provides a rich vein for developers of horror games.

The game has reasonable atmosphere, but Hadley should review the chills created by the deserted orphanage in Thief II. Nothing happened for ten minutes in that game too, but I was riveted for every second. Much of Thief’s neck-prickling fear came from a brilliant sound track of half-heard whispers and moans. In The Eight Pages we get nothing more than our own footsteps. It’s a reasonable start, but it needs much, much more.

Overall this feels like an exercise by someone trying out their new 3D game development software. As a free download it’s a way to kill a few minutes, but if you’re already that bored, this is probably not the answer.

We Have Seen the First Windows RT Tablets

…and they’re SERIOUSLY overpriced. Let’s take a quick look at what this really means.

It was recently announced on ZDNet that a leaked ASUS roadmap indicates that the hardware manufacturer will be releasing three Windows 8 based tablets. The tablets will be making an appearance near the 2012 Holiday buying season. Pricing for the tablets is a bit on the unreasonable side.

The entry level, Windows RT based ASUS Vivo Tab RT (TF600T) starts at $599. The mid-level ASUS Vivo Tab (TF810C) starts at $799. Both the TF600T and TF810C can make use of a keyboard based docking station for an additional $199. The high end ASUS Taichi is a tablet/notebook hybrid with a dual screen and attached keyboard that starts at $1299.

With Android tablets, like the Kindle Fire HD starting at $299 for the Fire HD 7″, and the well-established, market leader, Apple iPad 2 starting at $399, ASUS’ has priced itself out of the market. Regardless of how awesome these devices may be, there’s no way they’re going to gain any traction. Unfortunately, they’re going to be non-starters if these prices stick.

With ASUS’ Windows 8 offerings effectively non-players, Microsoft’s Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets become increasingly more relevant. The tablets are set to be produced and sold at a loss; and while MS can afford it, other OEM’s like ASUS can’t. ASUS is an untried business brand, and these devices, especially the dual functioning Taichi, aren’t priced to compete.

ZDNet’s Larry Dignan thinks that “consumers will balk at these tablet prices and either opt for a laptop or go with a cheaper tablet such as Apple’s iPad or any variety of Android.”

I totally agree. The technology here is pretty cool, but Windows RT and Windows 8 in and of itself, is supposed to be targeted at a much lower priced device. Consumers aren’t going to pay $599 for an untried, MS-based tablet, competing in an Apple dominated market.

The roadmap that was leaked was preliminary and the product offering, specs and prices of the devices are totally up in the air. It could all change before Windows 8 is made available in about 5 weeks or so, as of this writing. However if it doesn’t , not only will the devices be short lived, but it’s going to shorten the relevance of Microsoft’s Windows 8, and in the long run, that’s not what MS wants to see.
