I have never played a game quite like City Tuesday before. The closest comparison I can make would be the famous Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day where the main character was stuck reliving the same day over and over until he got it right. City Tuesday reminds me very much of this plot device.

You have the ability to fast forward time to speed up boring tasks in the game, and your main focus is to find all the hidden bombs the terrorists have planted across the city. But, let's be realistic here for a second, the bombs are not hidden very well. So the core game mechanic comes down to time management to solve the puzzles that allow you to collect all of the "hidden" bombs.

This is definitely one game you need to check out, because no matter how many descriptive words are placed in this spotlight, the experience of this game is so much more than that. You can add City Tuesday to your Indie Games collection for 80 MSP.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
