YOPAZ IceStar


Yopaz is a brand new game by Cedric Bourse that features a happy chap with a lust for collecting stars within a Sokoban-inspired universe. The game runs within GEM but is super smooth and sound effects are simple but very nice. However, if you have 4MB Ram, then you can also enjoy beautiful ambient DMA sounds.

This uses the familiar format and takes it a step further by placing you in the vacuum of space which means you must follow the basic laws of physics. So, once Yopaz begins moving, he is committed to travelling in that particular direction until bumping into an object. Take your time because you will need to cunningly use ice blocks to manoeuvre yourself properly in order to collect all the stars dotted about each level. Other curious oddities exist like blocks that aren't ice but instead will teleport you out in a different place on the map and there is also an advanced mode for those with a sadistic desire to push their brains even harder - it's a KILLER choice so be warned!!

Cedric Bourse, aka Orion_ (not Orion), has a website where you can download a playable demo and he is only asking for $4 to purchase the full game. That is incredibly cheap and hardly going to break the bank. Brilliant game.
