Unlike most games invoking a 16-bit aesthetic, Lost Yeti feels and even sounds as though Nintendo itself had originally released this action-puzzler alongside the likes of Tetris Attack or Kirby’s Dream Land 3. It’s certainly sugary enough, with the cheery yeti waving hello before you send him on his way towards the goal of each compact level. Taking a page from the puzzle classic Lemmings, you don’t actually control the creature in Lost Yeti, and therein lies the challenge.
Speedy hack-and-slash ninja affair Shadow Blade and the remastered iPad version of RPC classic Baldur’s Gate II lead the week’s offerings, which also includes promising entries like Super Sanctum TD and Lost Yeti. Be sure to keep an eye out for full reviews of some of these titles in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
