Mersey Remakes' Arcade Bundle of Wrong

Rob Fearon the kind, indie and retro loving soul also referred to as OddBob and the creator of more than a few excellent and quite frankly eye-melting arena shooters, among which you will find the brilliantly named Squid Yes, Not So Octopus, is also offering the equally excellent Bundle of Wrong. Actually, he has been offering it for quite some time now, but it was only a few days ago I finally grabbed the thing and can't help but suggest you do so yourself dear reader. It is, after all, incredible, incredibly addictive and an absolute blast. All you have to do is follow this link, pay what you want and start downloading the games. The excellent and addictive games.

You will, mind, be getting an excellent assortment of arcade-quality, visually stunning, taxing, surreal and downright amazing arena shooters (namely Squid Yes, Not So Octopus, SYNSO: Championship Edition, SYNSO 2: Squid Harder, War Twat and War Twat Colour Blindness Edition), the demented Pac-Man clone Squid and Let Die, mysterious forthcoming games and all the media files you'll need to make your very own shmup. If you manage to score over 250,000 points in SYNSO:CE you'll also earn my undying respect for your high-score skills. Oh, and while you are at it, why not grab Fish Fish Bang Bang

  1. Well I don't particularly like Arena shooters.
    But I love PWYW bundles and following your instructions.

    I doubt that I will ever play them but supporting PWYW bundles seems like a worthy enough cause to part me from a few of my earth dollars.

  2. I have donated to OddBob twice, once when I SYNSO was still completely free and I thought I'd throw him a penny for his hard indie work and then when I have learnt that he was ill (quite long time ago). Glad to know he is still alive and kicking.

    Oh, and I of course have the budle in question. So there.

  3. that looks sweet as..kinda like geometry wars

  4. @ Jonathon: Mind you my friend, I too am all for supporting Oddbob and PWYW bundles, while also being more of an adventure lover, but I do adore those particular arena shooters. The are so smart and funny. You'll see...

    @ Barts: I do believe he's quite fine and -once again- salute your taste and generosity dear Barts. Also, I do think a SYNSO:CE tournament would be a great thing to participate in.

    @ nohone: I'd say it does feel quite a bit like GW, but I haven't played a better arena shooter on the PC.

    27m in SYNSO:CE

  6. Got it! I'm deeply shocked, as I just managed to beat 300k and I've been playing the thing non-stop for the past days. I'm impressed and my respect will be undying!

  7. I payed 5 earth dollars...Now let's play...

  8. Ah, you'll love it dear Marco. Mind you, I've managed 1,000,000 points in SynsoCE.
