…It’s TGI Friday: Transmover?


Polygon ★ Gmen’s Transmover is probably one of the most unique games I’ve ever played. It’s a cross between an 8-bit platformer and Portal, and the result is a game that’s hard to explain, hard to figure out, but oh so satisfying when you do.

…It’s TGI Friday: Shift 3?

Shift 3

I featured Shift on DYH back in February, but I figured that with the release of Shift 3, it was probably worth another look.

Shift 3 takes the Portal/Paper Mario theme that made the first one so famous and adds a massive adventure mode, tons of achievements to earn, and even an unlockable Celebrity secret character.

In addition, there’s a selection of 18 Classic style levels from Shift players around the globe to battle your way through, and scoreboards to show off on if you think you shift like no one else.

Be careful though, because things aren’t always as they appear.

…It’s TGI Friday: Sling Ice?

Sling IceSling Ice is a fantastic Flash game that puts you in charge of a Sling or a Slingette as you chase after the Oozeville power source elements that were taken by evil monsters.

To play, just stretch your blob, aim, and release. The goal is to move from one grab peg to the next, and as you touch each peg, it turns green. After all of the grab pags have been turned green, a portal will open up and you can grab that to move to the next level.

I profiled the original Sling on DYH a long while back, and Sling Ice is the third in the series, so they’ve definitely perfected things by now, and it shows, with fantastic gameplay, a good story line, and smooth graphics.

Get ready to sling!

…Shift shifts your thinking?


Shift is like the poor man’s Portal. To solve this puzzle platformer, you must ‘shift’ between yourself and your shadow.

Think of it as a 2D Paper Mario.

The controls are simple (arrow keys move, space jumps, shift shifts) so you can pick it up quickly, but you’ll soon find your brain shifting into high gear as it tries to keep track of what’s up and what’s down.

Are you ready?

…Valve has style?

Portal Shirt

Surprisingly, the Valve Store is filled with video game merchandise that you might actually consider buying.

For example: Their Portal inspired shirts (pictured above) are impressively artistic.

As their classic tongue-in-cheek humor is present through out, check out the goods if you want to game in style.
