R–Type, Wallace & Gromit: Together at last!
Writing about web page http://www.miniclip.com/platypus/platypus.htm
You know what's missing from modern video games? Apart from playability, originality, wit, insight or whimsy? Well, I'll tell you; it's clay. All these be-tentacled aliens and and lovingly rendered Aztec ruins and shiny metal guns with their specular reflections and immaculately viscous gore are all very well, but why aren't there more games powered by claymation?
Now, thank goodness, the wait is over and the void is filled. Platypus is like R-Type would have been if Nick Parks had designed it, so it's essentially fabulous twice over. And at a mere 5.5MB for the demo version, it's smaller than the loading screens for Doom 3. Well worth a look.
