GDC can at times bring out games that wouldn’t surface otherwise. Today we saw a couple voxel art quick reflex games from Matt Meyers. The first of which is currently titled Flip Out and is a three lane avoidance game where jumping left and right while advancing forward are the only options. Choosing the correct jump direction to avoid pits, retracting knives, and shooting guards by is the key. Take a look at the gameplay below.
The second game is much simpler and yet nearly impossible. It’s a great entry into the one touch control / no one can ever play this game category. In the game Drive, the player can only start / stop the drift of a speeding truck. When touching the screen, the truck will turn toward the next 90 degree turn and start to drift. Lifting the touch the truck will start moving forward, usually into a wall.
