Soooo.. these here Awesome Shapes caught my eye..

Trouble is, seems everybody likes the shininess it seems but nobody actually
says anything in reviews/comments really and the vids/screenies are .. well.. odd >..<

So I gather that at least GnomeSlice has this game/potential gem stealing money from me..
Do tell, what the heck am I looking at when I see all these.. well... shapes?

Also, Cloaks and Spells; trying demo tonight hopefully but anybody that has it maybe?

Also, also, 'TUG' (my impulse buy this morning) is quite fun ^^

The actual gameplay isn't terribly unique. You click and drag your shape to the goal without touching various obstacles, or the sides of the maze. After a while there's a pretty intense boss fight, which is basically more clicking and dragging to avoid his attacks. I haven't gone any further than this yet, but it seems to change up what you're doing pretty consistently. It doesn't sound very interesting, but it's extremely well presented. The visuals give me a FEZ vibe in a lot of places. If you like artsy games, I'd recommend checking it out. The shininess is definitely the main draw here.

Also I impulse bought TUG as well but haven't played it yet. Will do soon. ;)
