Catching Up With Older Games

So, I've been playing catchup this past week with some other games that I hadn't played before.  I've already talked a little about Drawn To Life, which is a so-so platformer wrapped around a really cool concept that makes it play that much better.  I've also been digging into Meteos and Lunar Knights to see how they play.

Meteos is an interesting case.  I mean, we've played block matching games how many times before, right?  There shouldn't really be anything fresh with the concept, but it's surprisingly good.  It's frantic and fun in a way that most puzzlers aren't anymore.  I found myself gritting my teeth in concentration, which I haven't done in a while.

Lunar Knights I've only just started.  I'm interested to see where it goes, since the first dungeon is reasonably interesting.  It seems to play fairly solidly at first glance.

I'm also probably going to download MLB Dugout Heroes tomorrow.  I'll let you know how it is.
