Default T.E.C. 3001


The game has pretty much no story but looks fun as hell. The gameplay is solid and it makes you wish there was a Sonic the Hedgehog game like it. It's currently only available for the Xbox360's indie store and costs only 2$.
The developers said that they are working on a PC port and I really hope the game is available on Steam ^^


Here are some gameplay vid:

WHOA, that looks very very cool. ._.

It's like a dream I had one day. I'm getting this if this comes to Steam (specially if the price stays that low).

I wish they just stop it with these free runner games that just makes you go faster and faster. I wish there's a free runner game where you can shoot rockets, guns, ride different vehicles, kill people, go to other areas, have "speeding up" as an option, and lastly, a goal rather than going far and getting points.

There should be a point where it will end, but it would be almost impossible to go there, but still, the end is there. Or maybe just add the ending part as an option also.


Skip that, the game covers up almost everything I've said(Except for shooting guns and killing shit)

Anyways, wait for the Apple fans to scream out "TEMPLE RUN COPY!!!11!" soon enough. Kids these days.

The game is from 2011 so I kinda doubt it, but then again... LoL fans call Dota1 a copy even though it was created way back in 2002.

Not sure what you mean by this, the 3d levels of sonic seem close enough, especially the levels in Sonic Generations (especially in 30 second time attack, or whatever it was called). That said, the actual gameplay is probably more polished, since the levels are linear and not as detailed. Anyway, Sonic Generations was awesome, if you haven't played it, play it.

I'll probably at least try this one out, but I'm not really expecting that much out of it. Seems pretty bare bones, and everything would fall on the actual level/challenge/achievement design. I'm not that into getting a 0.2 sec faster time in games, and if that's the focus, i'll probably skip it.

The only game where getting the best time/hitting every move in the level perfectly is the most important thing I'd currently play is Dustforce, simply for the brilliant replay system on the scoreboards.

Then you'll probably not like the game as it doesn't have much of a story.

I think it's worth a try (specially for its price if what Sven2k said is true xD).

I think the psychedelic environment the game offers while you are trying to improve your own record is nice, remembers me of Tron, like DarkMessiah7 pointed out.

It does remember me of F-Zero GX for NGC a bit too (even though you use vehicles).

I would love if it had a strong on-line interaction (like sharing records and replays with friends), or a track-builderYes, I like building stuff and shit where you can share too and people can vote what are the best tracks and etc. I don't know, I'll look better into if it comes to Steam and then give my own opinion.

Nah, "robot sent in cyberspace to save mankind by collecting batteries" is good enough of a story for me. What I meant is that I don't like it when games are based around speedrunning leaderboards. I don't like spending 5 hours for 0.2 seconds only to see >9000 people are faster then I can ever dream to be.

Anyway, played the demo on onlive. Seems solid, has a lot of style and great niche mechanics/pickup/environment hazards that for some reason aren't mentioned in the trailer. So, the trailer is bad, but the game is good.

Anyway, since you said "looks fun" seems like you haven't played it either. Check out the demo, but be warned, onlive has delayed controls that feel sluggish and slippery. On the plus side, no waiting for downloads.

I don't have a 360
That's why I said ''I hope they release it on Steam when they port it to PC''

I just hate it when all these people think that new games are "Soo original and shit". IIRC, Angry Birds genre(that slingshot thingy) started with Castle Clout(random levels with tons of doodads to destroy+various artillery), but the point is, damn, everyone's just so hyped and overprotective of these new games that I just feel sad for the old games.

I mean, plants vs zombies didn't deserve that fame, really. It would've been better if "Bloons" was the one that got all that popularity and stuff.

Haha, this thread made me remember this game for SNES. Since I was a kid I had no remorse whatsoever playing it...
