    I got bugs and Tanks out of this deal, And now can’t decide between Aeroporter and Crimson Shroud.

    …and maybe Friday Monsters.

    • Atwa

      Get Crimson Shroud and get Friday Monsters, in my book they are the two best ones of the entire guild series. Friday Monsters is just incredibly comfy and wonderfully charming. Crimson Shroud is just an awesome RPG all around.

    • JMaster3000

      I didn’t like Crimson Shroud at all, i’d get Aeroporter.
      Looks more interesting.

    • Jelly

      Attack of Friday Monsters is a must buy! =P

      Crimson Shroud looks boring to me.

      Considering bugs vs tanks now ~.~

      • GDI

        Crimson Shroud is by the Vagrant Story, FF Tactics, and Unsung Story dude.

        It was epic.

    • CozyAndWarm

      Crimson Shroud is a must for story-driven JRPG fans. In case you don’t already know it’s laid out as if you were playing a tabletop RPG. Aero Porter’s gameplay is simple but addicting and enjoyable, almost like a good flash game.

    how Aero Porter , Crimson Shroud , Liberation Maiden, The Starship Damrey gameplay look like? I only heard Attack of the Friday is a card game but never see the gameplay

    • Friday Monsters is more of an adventure/visual novel type of game than a card game. It has card game elements, but they’re more there for replay value. The main point of the game is soaking in the atmosphere, which is very warm and nostalgic in a “small town life” kind of way.

      • The game is basically running around a single town in Final Fantasy VIII, minus the shops, battles, world map, or any other gameplay mechanic except the card game. I think people deserve to know that aside from the minigame on the side the entire game consists of running back and forth in a relatively small area and talking repeatedly to the same NPCs. It has a lot of personality and charm, but if you’re not prepared for what it is (or isn’t) gameplay-wise you are gonna be bored.

    • Liberation maiden has you control a mech with the right thumbstick and the touchpad pen for aiming missiles etc. It’s quite fun. Attack of the friday monsters has the card playing element but it’s mostly about walking around this small village and talking to people. I really enjoyed it, found it very relaxing

    • nonscpo

      I bought both Bugs vs. Tanks! and Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale. I do not recomend Bugs vs. Tanks! the games design feels simple. I do recomend Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale, for $3 the game has a very unique charm that I cant quite put into words.

  • TheExile285

    Oh, I didn’t know about this. AotFM will be mine.

  • nonscpo

    Anybody know how good and short Liberation Maiden is? also what kind of game is The Starship Damrey?

    • z_merquise

      I had Liberation Maiden and I find it pretty fun. It play like an arcade game, short and fast-paced. And like an arcade game, it’s meant to be played more than once. It had some unlockable art with a bit of background story in it. Music is really great too.

      You can check some gameplay vids and see if the game suit your taste.

    • God

      It’s worth the $2.99 if that’s what you are asking.

    • Göran Isacson

      I cleared Liberation Maiden in about half an hour on the first difficulty, it’s short and sweet, even if the camera acts up a little sometimes.

      As for Starship Damrey, it’s a game that starts with the warning that this game will give you NO tutorials. No help. You will have to figure out everything on your own. After that you’re suddenly awake inside a stasis pod aboard a starship, prematurely awakened from cryogenic sleep. You first have to figure out how to open the pod (which is also how you find out that you’re aboard a space ship to begin with), and then you have to wander around the empty husk of a ship and find out what the hell happened.

      But it’s not soon thereafter that you figure out that you are not alone… and something is VERY wrong.

      The whole thing is played from a first person view, and is pretty darn scary. So far I’ve had no combat, it’s just walking around and solving puzzles. Think Amnesia… IN SPAAACE.

      Where no one can hear you scream ebcause you plugged in your headphones, you’re playing the game in the middle of the night, and this games sound design is creeeeepyyy.

    • It’s a 3D graphic adventure game, kinda like Myst. It found it pretty boring and ugly, and it’s my least favorite of the Guild titles. But some people like it, I guess.

  • z_merquise

    I totally forgot this. I’ll be getting Attack of the Friday Monsters this time.
    Thanks for the reminder.

  • SprintsMcGee

    I’ll be picking up AotFM and Crimson Shroud then

    • God

      What about Liberation Maiden?

      • SprintsMcGee

        I’ve had that one for awhile now

  • mojack411

    Can someone tell me how friendly Liberation Maiden is toward lefties? Does it have Circle Pad Pro support?

    Besides that I”m really tempted to pick up some of these other games too but with Bravely Default and Lightning Returns I dunno when the heck I would ever get around to playing them.

    • Göran Isacson

      ooh, I don’t know if it’s got Circle Pad Pro support, BUT I do know it’s not lefty-friendly in it’s regular mode. You control the ship with the joystick, and use the stylus to change course and attack enemies. They really could have done so that two of the face buttons lets you go forward and backward and then have you steer with the stylus, but alas. Maybe if it’s got Circle Pad you can steer with the other hand, buut yes. That’s how it is. Also I will say that most of these games are pretty short, I beat Liberation Maiden in half an hour, so you could probably use them as “rest-stops” inbetween more intense games.

  • Tiredman

    Just picked up Liberation Maiden, Friday Monsters, and Crimson Shroud. Friday monsters should be an interesting experience.

  • James Enk

    there some really good game here and at this price definitely worth buying

  • CamulaHikari

    Thanks for reminding me~ Picked up all of the games I didn’t have yet.

  • Kei-chan

    Bought a bunch! Great sale!

  • Göran Isacson

    LibMaiden was a pretty neat game, I liked how little time there was between start of level and actually getting to the nittygritty. Starship Damrey freaked me so bad I put it on the backburner… well, that and I am stuck after finding the first crewmember and wandering around with the robot. At any rate, the only other game I’m interested in now is Aero Porter. Anyone here who bought it and can say if it’s fun or not?

    • katamari damacy

      Aeroporter is fun but hard as hell. It’s such a simple concept but once you pile on multiple layers it gets really hard

      • Göran Isacson

        Gotta admit, that sounds pretty damn cool. I am always a fan of puzzle games that icnrease and increase in difficulty until you need to enter God Mode to beat them. Feels challenging.

    • It’s a decent little… puzzle game? It’s a little hard to classify. It’s functionally kind of like a Tetris-style falling block game, only with a very different setup and flow.

      Anyway, it’s a moderately fun timewaster that gets really hard, really fast. Unlike the other Guild games that feel like miniature console titles, Aero Porter feels more like a mobile app sort of game. Whether that’s a good or a bad thing depends on what you’re in the mood for, I guess.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ooh, that’s a nice description: more like a mobile app than a mini console game. As someone who’s fond of puzzle games, it may just be worth my money. As long as I don’t run out of space from all the other Level 5 games I’ve downloaded…

        • I don’t think any of them are all that big. I have all of ’em on my standard-issue 2GB SD card with enough room for plenty of other games.

  • katamari damacy

    Weapon Shop was part of Guild01. Should have been discounted too!

  • sammy11

    I picked up crimson shroud. I’ll pick up lib maiden too.

  • Y’know, with this sale you can just go grab a $20 prepaid card at your local Best Buy or CVS and buy all six games at once.

    The only one I bought during this sale was Bugs vs. Tanks! (a.k.a. “Keiji Inafune Presents: NAZIS!!”) since I already had the rest, but I’d rank them as follows:

    Crimson Shroud > Attack of the Friday Monsters! > Liberation Maiden > Aero Porter > Bugs vs. Tanks! > Starship Damrey

    All the games are flawed, but also refreshingly unique and experimental, and that alone makes them worth checking out.

  • MiniTaurus

    Thank you for the notice ^^
    Will get Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale, The Starship Damrey, and Crimson Shroud. I just love those genre ^^
