    Good write-ups. Had a peek at Dark Train and Glitchspace and they seem interesting.

    I can't recommend Glitchspace, but, then again, I dislike most platformers. I got it because I was at a stage where I wanted to check out how programming/hacking was done in different games, and, from that point of view, Glitchspace filled its purpose, but, as a game, it wasn't my thing. My dislike for platformers might be because I'm bad at them, but a good platformer, in my opinion, is one that makes me want to push through and improve. I have played like a handful that manages this (and even made me enjoy them), but Glitchspace was not one of them; the "hacking" part was not enough and there are also far superior games for that.

    Dark Train, on the other hand, is a game I can really recommend. A very specific part of it was like trying to eat soup with a perfectly good spoon, but where the spoon always insisted on pointing the wrong end towards the soup no matter how I tried forcing it not to, but the game, as a whole, perfectly made up for that and made me want to learn all the tricks and overcome the challenges. I was also surprised at how much exploration it offered. (free demo on itch)

    By the way, what's that other side-scroller game where you also manage a large vehicle with many rooms hidden inside? I think the vehicle was like a ship (instead of a train), maybe a side-wheeler, but wasn't always in water.

    Far Sail was like that, but not at the scale you're suggesting (except at one point it kind of is, but even then you're probably not talking about just that one part).

    Thanks, that's the one I was thinking about (https://store.steampowered.com/app/6...AR_Lone_Sails/). Not as similar as I thought: I haven't played it, but had vague memories of the vehicle appearing larger.

    Ok not going with mystery challenge, but I got 30 mins to kill so I'll do a bit of backlog reducin. Limiting myself to 10 mins per game.

    Game 1: Ruiner



    I need to play some more of this one. Starting out I thought it was a melee centric type game, but it's similar to a heap of fast action arcade games. Once you start getting abilities and ranged combat, things get fun. The game keeps throwing "KILL THE BOSS" at you every few minutes. Who the hell is the boss? In my 10-ish minutes I did not get to find out.

    Game 2: Bloodstained - Curse of the Moon



    Another I need to play more of. This game OOZE'S NES style gaming. Much like Shovel Knight. Music is superb. Gameplay great.

    And that's all I had time for, as I went a bit over time wise.
