Do you like watching meters tick down on the screen, listening to someone gasping frantically for air and eventually succumbing to death? If so, do I have the game for you!
Capsule is a minimalist game, from the designer of Canabalt and Hundreds on iOS, both games that had simple hooks, but compelling gameplay. You play the entire game on a radar screen, with nothing but the arrow keys and the space bar. The way the game works is this: you are a crosshair on the screen, and you use the forward and back keys to throttle back and forth, and the arrow keys to turn. The space bar sends out a pulse that helps to identify things nearby, indicated on the screen by small squares, diamonds and circles. And that’s it.
