Hi everyone, and welcome back to My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I’ve been playing over the last seven days. This week was a little quieter than last, but there’s a new release from Glitch Games and I continued playing IMMORTALITY, as well as Genshin Impact, of course. There’s also a Draknek game being removed from the App Store soon and you should grab it before then if you’re a puzzle fan. Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff.
As you all probably know by now, I’m a big fan of Glitch Games, so I was thrilled to see they had a new game releasing. Station 117 has you breaking into a secret underwater lab to try and find out what they were up to down there. Now, I thought by now I would have known all of Glitch Games’ tricks, but they still managed stump me for a good while on several puzzles. I had a lot of fun with this one and especially enjoyed the odd jokes and surprise ending. I recommend this one to any adventure fans. I’m also working on a walkthrough here if you need any help.
These Robotic Hearts of Mine
I’ve played most of Draknek’s newer puzzle games and I’ve enjoyed all of them. But for some reason I held off on buying These Robotic Hearts of Mine. It’s over 10 years old and, sadly, it’s being removed from the App Store in less than 90 days because of Apple’s rules. Because of that, the developer made it free until then. As with his other games, it’s a no-nonsense puzzler with an undo button, although this one does have a move counter. The goal in each puzzle is to rotate the cogs in order to turn all the little hearts right-side up. It starts easy, but even a few levels in it was starting to hurt my brain. I’m sad it’s going to be removed from the store soon, because I’m more sure I’ll finish it in time. But I recommend grabbing it for yourself and trying to play as much as you can before the clock runs out.
SpongeBob SolitairePants is a Spongebob-themed version of Solisquare, which I covered a while back. It’s available through Apple Arcade and there’s a story with voiced dialogue from Spongebob and Patrick, as well as different decks to collect. The most notable difference, though, is the Quest Mode, which has you playing through specific decks and trying to score three stars on each. I was actually sailing through them pretty easily through level 14, but on level 15 I realized that I don’t fully understand the scoring. I tried several times but I could only get two stars. I’ll probably try again, but I wanted to take a break. There’s also some other modes I need to check out. If you’re a solitaire fan and have an Apple Arcade subscription, definitely check it out.
I’m still playing Sam Barlow’s IMMORTALITY and I’m still finding some batshit crazy hidden clips. I’ve been playing for over 10 hours now but I have no idea how close I am to finding everything. I’m actually amazed every time I find new clips. I’m not even 100% how the system works, but I’ve been zooming in on more items lately to try and find some obscure stuff I might have missed. I’m still eager to see where this is all going. I’m piecing it together in my head, but I think I’m still missing some core details. Hopefully it won’t be too difficult to track down the rest. In any case, I highly recommend checking out IMMORTALITY for yourself, either on Netflix or through Steam or other platforms it’s available on.
And last, I’m still keeping up with Genshin Impact. I managed to 36-star the Spiral Abyss again, but it took a lot more effort than it has in several months. There was also a photo event that just ended, but I personally didn’t find it very interesting. Now we have the Hypostatic Symphony event, which is also not really my thing. But I’m looking forward to the upcoming 3.3 update that should bring a lot more interesting content, as well as the new character called the Wanderer. Until then, I’m just saving up primogems for him.
And that’s everything I’ve been up to this week. I also caught up on Dead to Me and finished the final season. I enjoyed it, though the ending was a bit on the depressing side for what was such a light-hearted show. Anyway, let me know in the comments section which games you’re playing and I’ll see you back here next time with more of My Week Unwrapped!
