Mutant Storm - Tripping The Light Fantastic

Oct 12, 2007
Now this is one freaky game. Mutant Storm, is like a mad mash of disco balls, lava lamps, psychedelics, arcade game frenzy, with a dash of Jimi Hendrix thrown in for good measure. You know those visualization plugins that come with Winamp, and Windows Media Player. They make all those weird combinations of light, color and movement based on the sound of the music. This game is kinda like those, except for the little alien thing-a-ma-jings that are trying to wipe you out.

There a little funky themselves, but more on them later. Visually speaking, I'm not sure I've seen another game quite like this one. And yes, it is one of my favorites. Hey it's my blog, and I'm gonna talk about the obscure little games I like that don't get the recognition I think they deserve. Maybe at some point I'll run out of the good games, and start trashing the lame ones, but that could take me a while. In the mean time, there's great games like Mutant Storm to talk about first.

Now this game has been around for a while, and maybe you've played it before, and maybe you haven't. In any even, you should try it again. I saw it on the the Garage Games website after I hadn't played it for a while, and decided to give it another go. Apparently the earlier version of the game was too easy for some, so they toughed it up a little. A good reason to try it again. For me, it's just one of those games I really enjoy going back to every once in a while. It's always great for a blast of eye candy for the old sweet-eye I seem to be afflicted with.

The other thing I really like about Mutant Storm, is the game play itself. Not an easy game to get the hang of, and probably why it never got as popular as it should have. I always find it a little tricky coordinating my firing/aiming mouse hand, with my up/down/left/right strafe hand. This has got to be one of those good games for developing great hand eye coordination in surgeons.

Surely you've heard of that study, where they showed that medical surgeons, that played video games had a higher success / survival rate among their patients, then surgeons who spent their spare time playing bridge with grandma and grandpa. I'm paraphrasing and editorializing somewhat, but you get the idea.
