Game for the Weekend: Plarinet

This week’s game for the weekend is the wonderfully quirky Plarinet, available on Xbox 360 for $1 / 69p.

I find it quite hard to describe why I love this game so much. The gameplay is reasonably fun but nothing too exciting. You mine planet to collect items with enemies to avoid – although these can be shot when you hop in your ship. It is fun but not enough to to keep you. However it is the artwork that really makes the game. It is fun, charming, colourful and sometimes pretty whacky. In fact that describes how the whole game feels.

So go on – grab a trial or the full copy and entertain yourself for half an hour tonight after work, then tomorrow, then Sunday!
