…It’s TGI Friday: Mirror’s Edge 2D?

Mirror's Edge 2D

Considering some of the reviews I’ve read of Mirror’s Edge (See Yahtzee’s Zero Punctuation Review for an example) Mirror’s Edge 2D might just be the first advergame that’s better than the original!

Mirror’s Edge 2D was developed by Borne Games (the same folks that created the Fancy Pants Adventure series) and it borrows and updates heavily from the already fantastic controls to create a fluid experience that will have you running up walls, sliding under bars, and jumping across chasms in no time.

It’s also a very open game, with lots of room to explore, and you can earn achievements along the way that will help you rank on the global leaderboards that they keep updated with the top scores.

…It’s TGI Friday: Matt Sandorf: Journey to Endless Entertainment?

Matt Sandorf: Journey to Endless Entertainment

Matt Sandorf: Journey to Endless Entertainment is an advergame for Sony that lets you guide Matt point-and-click style through a futuristic spaceship.

Despite being an advertisement, Matt Sandorf is actually entertaining, and looks great as well. The gameplay has a very smoothed over, top down style to it, and the cut scenes are all done as rather unique, charcoal style drawings.

The game is also surprisingly difficult, and doesn’t let you get away with much, though it does contain enough twists, turns and jokes to keep you working your way through it and intrigued along the way.

If you get stuck, there’s a walkthrough available from Jay is Games, but I encourage you to stick with it, because there are few advergames that are this rewarding.
