Game reviews: Edamame series/Floors

Getting your game reviewed is undoubtedly one of the most painful experiences in every indie gamer's life. As of July 2015, there were 1.5 million apps available for download on the App Store (Statista) competing for limited review spots that would give the developer some leverage for  increased downloads.

So after contacting a very long list of recommended reviewers and busting our review budget really quickly, we had to look for options where people would review your game for free. And that is how we stumbled onto the Edamame Review Club. Their process is simple: Review three games on their list and get reviewed in return. We had a lot of fun doing this. Reviewing other games gave us the opportunity to really think about a lot of things- like what people like to play, aspects that really appeal to gamers.. etc

Our first review was the iOS game Floors. Easy to play, free to download, what really attracted us to it was the fact that there was absolutely no need to language to guide you to play the game. And it has the potential to keep you occupied for a really long time!

I couldn't get very far but managed to play a bit to really appreciate what the developers have done. Here is a quick video and some shots that capture the essence of the game

Here are some of the characters I unlocked during the session
