I paid minimum price. Not sure how I feel about it given the nature of the interface. Given that, I'll post some impressions once I've played a bit.

The IGS video is worth a watch, though. It explained it a bit better than I was interpreting from vids of it.

EDIT: Played the first one for about five minutes. I already have some things I noticed.

1. The graphics options on the first one, at least, are absolutely horrible. The highest resolution I was allowed was 1280x960.

2. The controls are abominable. Rebind them as soon as you start the game up.

3. Combat is incredibly simple. Given it was described as a "roguelike" of sorts, though, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

4. Combat training doesn't do much...training. It's pretty much just a shooting gallery with what I can only assume is the game's weakest ship.

The FAQ on the site:
You can set a custom resolution in any version of Flatspace by editing the Config.cfg file in a text editor and changing the "screenwidth" and "screenheight" options.

Not sure. Hmm...

Did any of you get the Flatspace bundle? If so, how did you think it was? I thought it felt too empty. I mean, everything, including space rocks, was few and far between when I started. And combat was pretty meh. A bit hard to control. Especially with a mouse.

I got it, but mostly out of obsessive game buying so I haven't tried it yet.

Huh. If it is, I wonder if I should buy it. I got it with the Groupees bundle a while ago, but supposedly, it was a "special Groupees build."
Bit Trip Runner is not on Android, it is another Bit Trip saga title, so... no.

Rico... hmmm.. not a incredible good game, but nice to play cheap.

Dunno if you noticed but the person who originally suggested Rico on the IGS forum wrote:

Was or will be featured on Groupees Be Mine 6 as stripped down (not full, promo) version.

Yeah, I'm aware, but even so, I'm not sure I want the full game.
