On Maybank Highway, close to Wild Olive, sits a road called Bluebird. Although “road” may not be the appropriate word. It’s more of a gravel-covered break in the trees.

It’s the kind of street where you wonder if your GPS isn’t, perhaps, leading you somewhere to kill you.

If you were intrigued by our hands-on with new MOBA Smashmuck Champions at PAX Prime last week, we’ve got good news. The title is now available via Steam’s early access program, according to a Kiz press release. The “program helps to further Kiz’s commitment to open development, bringing the fans and players into the creation process to tweak, refine, and suggest new ideas that are incorporated into the game.”
Kiz Studios, creators of free-to-play multiplayer battle arena SmashMuck Champions, are trying to avoid “making Dota” by speeding up gameplay and involving the community, art director Allen White told us at PAX Prime 2013. According to White, Dota continues to act as the template for the genre. When the indie developer began working on SmashMuck Champions, it sought to stray away from other titles by taking a fast-paced track.
Kiz Studios, the developer behind the MOBA SmashMuck Champions, takes community feedback to another level. Their newest champion is Platimus the Platicorn – a part-platypus, part-unicorn champion that charges into battle with a swarm of his vicious Puggle offspring. What makes Platimus special is that he was created and designed by the SmashMuck Champions community during a panel at PAX East.
SmashMuck Champions: The MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) genre is known for being treacherous and unwelcoming to new players. But Kiz Games hopes to remedy this with its upcoming MOBA SmashMuch Champions. SmashMuck is a colorful title that easily introduces new players to this hectic style of gameplay. Its other claim to fame is that matches take around 10 minutes, letting casual players hop in and out quickly. The game is in beta now, and available through Steam.

Isn’t it always the way. You’re some weird anthropomorphic creature minding your own business chasing butterflies in a field, when you’re captured by scientists and probed for study, only to have to sneak and attack your way to freedom. Critter Escape is a line drawing sneak game, popularized by such titles as Spy Mouse, in which you must draw a line to move your critter around the guards and to the exit. What this title brings to the table are challenge based stars, a host of interesting power-ups, and the ability to forgo the entire stealth approach, hulk out, and smash your opposition to bits.
When I previewed Critter Escape! a few months ago I came away fairly impressed. However I did only spend a few minutes playing it. Now that I’ve spent much, much longer hightailing it through Welk Tower I’ve developed a clearer picture of the critter’s plight and while a few cracks in the armor have been found it’s still quite sturdy.
Critter Escape ($0.99) by Chillingo Ltd is a fun strategic stealth game, similar to the likes of Spy Mouse. Can you help these cute critters escape to freedom? When you first start out, the game will greet you with a mandatory cutscene of our main critter, who is in a peaceful meadow, just trying to catch a butterfly. Unfortunately, he gets captured instead, and placed into a secret research facility — who knows what things they have in store for this innocent creature! So that’s what you must do — help our little friend escape the facility before it’s too late.
