Gameplay Coverage March '20

In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Cooking Mama: Let's Cook (Mobile). The game is being played via PC on Bluestacks but is a mobile game.

This game was featured in my article 12 Mobile Games to Pass the Time for thedailygamepad.net and can be found here: http://www.thedailygamepad.net/12-mobile-games-to-pass-the-time/

Cooking Mama: Let's Cook! Allows for you to play the game Cooking Mama on your mobile device. I have always been a fan of the Cooking Mama games, and this mobile version of the game holds up pretty well. It has all the workings of the traditional game, as well as some new features, such as fishing, running a farm, and Mama Dojo which makes you cook the recipes from memory without any cues.

The game does have ads, but you are able to skip some of them during the game by not accepting the extra payout. Eventually, the ads will catch you though. I currently have the ad-free version, but sadly I can't remember how much it actually costs. In addition, you can open up other recipes by purchasing them or simply logging into the game.

Overall, Cooking Mama: Let's Cook is a delightful experience and I recommend it.

In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Maiden & Spell (PC).

Maiden and Spell is a bullet hell game much similar to the Touhou Project games. Where the art style is different and unique and there is an interesting story. However, the issue that I ran across from the game is that it moved a little slow to me, and the controls were difficult. Also, some of the mechanics in the game I had a hard time understanding. Such as a Stun Move that one of the characters can use, but it didn't seem to stun the opponent.

A few improvements to the controls and maybe having a bit of speed to the game could help improve it.

In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Rising Hell (PC).

Rising Hell is a tower climbing rogue-lite platformer, in which you play as an escapee from hell, who is trying to make there way out of hell. You get to smash through multiple enemies and even a lot of bosses. The game is a lot of fun, and with its rogue-lite mechanics, the game provides a ton of fun.

I hope that the developers are looking to adding the game to the console's because playing this on the switch would be amazing, and I think it could do very well on the consoles.

And therefore may not be suitable for some viewers and should NOT be viewed by anyone under the age of 17 as this is a rated M for Mature Game. Although the game does have a Safe For Work mode you can turn on. Which is how I recorded this video with Safe For Work turned on.

In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Paws and Effect on PC.

Paws and Effect is a visual novel about a young woman, whose life is all over the place. She lives alone with her two dogs after a break-up and has now decided to be a lawyer after figuring out that being a teacher isn't really her calling in life. One night something interesting happens, and her to lovely canine companion become human and from there the story gets interesting.

Again the game has a Safe For Work mode that blocks out the nudity, but the language is still a little strong.

In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Stela (Nintendo Switch) for thedailygamepad.net.

Stela is a really interesting game as it is mesmerizing and a very difficult puzzle game. In Stela you wake up in an unknown location underground. Upon ascending from the ground you are then come to the surface which appears to be a wasteland. Well, that and there is for some odd reasons a ton of rats in the game. I will admit I didn't get to go far in the game due to those rats constantly killing me. However, I did enjoy the visuals and it reminds me of games like Black the Fall which plays a little similar to this.

I am going to give the game another try though, because looking at the trailer the game looks amazing and also has a Little Nightmares vibe to it as well. So if you have played games such as Little Nightmares and Black the Fall, this is going to be a great game to invest in.

If you would like to play Stela for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s):
