Aliens are most probably out there, but Nicolai Troshinsky’s game is for real. In UFO on Tape, you have spotted a spaceship with their camera while you’re on a moving vehicle. The challenge then is to keep shooting footage of the ship as it zips and darts about.
The game is brilliantly simple to play because you only need to use the mouse to keep track of the UFO. But for me the game’s biggest draw is the graphics. The style is wonderfully apt. The sound (or lack thereof) is nicely done to. The only thing you’ll hear is the sound of your vehicle and the other cars passing by. I think this game would be a good fit for mobile devices as well, but if it does ever make it to phones and tablets, I think it would be better if it used the accelerometer, i.e. tilt controls. Your finger will obscure the screen if it were touch-based.
The best part of UFO on Tape? It’s free! Unfortunately it’s for Windows only. Download it at GameJolt, and be sure to let Nicolai know what you think.
