Reacher, Hot Lap League, and Free Radicals - Ep150


00:00 - The foundations of a hot tub.


03:03 - Coiledspring Games’ Photosynthesis sets a new standard for gateway games and feels like it might genuinely be a good option for getting people into the hobby. Plus we get talking about how challenging that actually is.


21:57 - A sauna. The Red Zone. Fika.


34:11 - Hot Lap League reminds us, very deliberately, of TrackMania Turbo which we covered back on Ep4. This slick racer brings time trial-based high precision competitiveness to Android and iOS, and we’re here for it.


45:33 - A very VERY funny joke. Oh and our thoughts on new book-turned-TV-series Reacher.


56:31 - Free Radicals from WizKids Games sure isn’t a gateway game, but its bold use of colours is admirable, and even if it does get utterly silly at times that’s all part of the fun.


All that, and a silent scream, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero), and Sam (@MrSamTurner).


Our Spotify Playlist brings together lots of great thematic music inspired by the stuff we talk about. Go check it out, if you like.
