A city under siege. Aliens stalk the streets, abducting and bewitching the terrified population. Demons rise from the pavements, burning everything they see. The people cry out, begging for a hero with the strength and courage to see them safely through this darkest of nights. And look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s... a bright pink clown with antlers and too much cleavage?
A flag adorns the top right corner of the screen in the game and it constantly billows, no matter how you do. We imagine it’s powered by the wind of change, for Championship Manager 2010 is back after a two year hiatus with a steely determination to reconquer past glories. After being given an extended period to develop the game, devs Beautiful Studios have delivered a much improved Champ Man bursting with sparkly new features.
Chaos Theory is another of the smaller games to get boosted into the public eye by Steam. We’ve had Gumboy, Gish, Audiosurf and the slightly unjustifiable Ninja Reflex, and now it’s Chaos Theory’s turn to look slightly awkward rubbing sholders with Call of Duty 4 and Chuzzle Deluxe.
It’s been too long since our PC screens were graced by City Interactive games, but our prayers have been answered at last. Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual is a by-the-numbers point-and-click adventure game that is about as generic and average as you could possibly imagine.
Part of us hoped that Circus Empire was some kind of steampunk fantasia where someone managed to weaponise Barnum & Bailey’s circus in the 1800s, which then carved out a dominion in North America before taking on the might of Her Majesty Victoria’s forces. It’s Carny-carnage! Alas, it was not to be. The devs have taken the more traditional management route.
