Clipping the microphone. Breaking the internet. Bursting bright blue birthday balloons and blazing blocks into oblivion. Sound fun? Join Baylee and I as we play a balloon popping mini game being worked on by Ivan Soto, because it’s bout to be my B day yall, and then Lazer breakout by the same guy who created Burger King ahem I mean BK 1, 2, and 3. Oh yeah, and watch what happens when I plug my computer in! It really doesn’t like that.

The following are the games I played. That balloon game thing is now released, so I’ll put it here as well.
In this episode, I begin by playing the mission mode of Marina Break, the breakout/pinball style game created by Yukio Nazawa, the same dude who created the BK series! And yes, I do spend like 3 minutes on two of the levels smacking the ball around – but it’s not because I can’t aim, it’s because Yukio the developer made it too hard. Yeah, that’s right. It’s not my fault at all! Ahem anyway, after that I demonstrate a Breakout concept of my own, and finally I end with a demonstration of the new voiceovers in Scramble! I hope you enjoy this Episode that lasted way longer than I thought it would!
Whether it’s rocks, slime, or flying electrified lamps, we find out that getting bonked on the head by anything is really not a good way to go! Listen as I first demonstrate Scramble once more, as well as a new intense, platforming minigame I recently added to it! Then, we move on to BK3, and complete the tutorial and half of stage 1! (Yeah… I know. I couldn’t complete the rest because of those damn flying lamps!)
What, none of that sounds pleasant to you? Yeah, me neither. That’s exactly what I had to endure however, when I decided to play Villains From Beyond and Dark Defender, two retro style arcade space invaders games from Oriol Gomez and Guillem Leon, without reading either of the manuals first. Though both can be categorized as space invaders, each presents a highly unique twist on the concept that makes it vastly different from most other games in the genre. So even if space invaders aren’t your cup of tea, you won’t want to miss this one! And who knows, those who don’t like space invaders might just change their minds for these two games.
This podcast features just me, Steven D. I start the podcast off by providing an opinion-based game play review of the Mine Racer game from 2mb Solutions, and then I move on to drag out an old yet still majorly addictive and rather enjoyable title from the now abandoned Dan Z Games called Super Deekout to mess around with for a few minutes. As usual, you can expect some epic failure as I attempt to play these games, as well as interaction with listeners and all around random discussion.

Welcome to Episode 5! In this one, Sam, Alec, Carter and I demonstrate this fun new game I’m creating called Scramble. It’s a rather arcade style game, but it’s unique and has several different and interesting concepts. You won’t want to miss this one!
This is a special episode of the Steven D Podcast. Sam, Carter, Alec, and I are all hanging out at Sam’s house for the week. In this episode, all 4 of us take turns playing a few small competition games, to see who can get the highest score. Among those are The Great Toy Robbery and Super Egg Hunt from L-Works, and one of the games from Sam’s not yet released Constant Motion project demonstrated in Episode 3. As usual, the four of us have a great time, and you won’t want to miss this!
