Digidrive is Awesome

If you got 6,40€ to spare, here is a nice way to spend it: get yourself Digidrive. It is a game from the Bit Generations we’ve already talked about. It is also one of the last two titles from that series still available over at Play-Asia and it is even DISCOUNTED. Trust me, getting the other ones is much more expensive and inconvenient. And why would you do such thing when Digidrive REALLY is a Highlight of the series? Even the guys from GameLab agree.

Don’t even try to understand the screenshots, they are confusing. Explaining the game is difficult too. It is generally a very simple, short action-puzzle game with lots of exciting rules which add a nice strategic layer to it. It also features great music, crazy visuals and a VERY handy automatic save/continue function for mobile playing. If you always wanted a Bit Generations game it’s now or never. With the discount, I don’t think it will stay available for long.

(Oh and if one of my colleagues decides to grab it: Guys, I’ve got a Play-Asia coupon… and I might want to add something to your order)

    basically i migh be interested.

    but: you said, don’t try to understand the screenshots? i’m having problems getting any idea of the basic gameplay from watching the video you posted. WTF?

    Yeah, like this guy on flickr said “I think I would have an aneurysm attempting to explain the gameplay”. It’s not that it is complicated but it is very abstract.

    So here goes my aneurysm: There is a crossing. Like a street crossing. And shapes (”cars”) are coming from all 4 different directions. When a car gets to the center to the crossing you can send in in a different direction or let it drive straight trough. Then the car will drive down the street to the edge of the screen and stop. The basic gameplay is to sort cars of the same color (there a 3 different colors of cars) into the streets.

    But that’s just the beginning, there are some more rules which add this whole nice strategic value to it. I won’t go into more details. It would be easier if you try it. It’s just 6 euro – that’s like a pizza.


The Game Design Scrapbook is a second blog of group of three game designers from Germany. On our first blog, Game Design Reviews we describe some games we played and point out various interesting details. Unfortunately, we found out that we also need some place to collect quick and dirty ideas that pop into our minds. Hence, welcome to Game Design Scrapbook. You will encounter wild, random rantings. Many of then incoherent. Some of them maybe even in German. If you don't like it, you might enjoy Game Design Reviews more.
