8A powerful wizard is messing about in his lab when he accidentally causes an explosion that supernaturally animates both of his gloves. While the good glove is thrown clear of the explosion, the other flies into a bubbling cauldron and becomes corrupted with the power of Pure Evil. Now, as Glover, you must go and recover Seven Magic Stone Thingies that have been scattered to the outskirts of the kingdom, and beat the stuffing out of the Evil Glove, who has somehow managed to transform your happy Disney-esque kingdom into a postapocalyptic landscape.

What all of the above means is that you’re put in control of the game’s main character, a walking and talking white glove. The basic goal of each stage is to find a rubber ball that contains one of the Magic Stone Thingies and safely transport it through the level by pushing it, throwing it, or jumping on it like a trampoline. You can also transform the ball into a bowling ball, which can easily crush crates; a ball-bearing, which makes it easier to navigate small areas; or a magical crystal that seems to break a lot and not do much of anything.

Unfortunately, Glover’s actual gameplay is so utterly screwed up, there’s really not much point. When you’re playing as Glover by himself, the control is fine — you just trot around and platform-jump to your heart’s content. But once you get the ball, get ready for some headaches; keeping tabs on the damn thing gets horribly annoying. Your precious bouncing ball keeps rolling off cliffs and forcing you to go back to the beginning of many levels — or to the options screen to commit “suicide.” The incredibly fiddly controls essentially require an analog gamepad; playing with the keyboard is simply not an option. Glover does virtually nothing right except when it comes time to throw the ball. When you punch the button to give it a toss, the game draws a parabola displaying where your pitch will go.

    Greetings comrade.

    I think you really love video games like me… all of these reviews are shown this, a passion.
    I am a serious game collector too. Look at my website. Maybe it help to you for creating a personal database.

    See you.

  3. Kurthan says:

    Actually not a website, just blog and no download links for games. But if you want to see my list, here;

    https://mypcgamescollection.blogspot.com/

    … these are collected since 1997. Don’t ask to me about non PC games on my archive, they are embedded emulation games and perfectly working as the other native PC titles, so all of them are PC games for me. Of course they are all pirated, none of them are original. And I update my collection almost everyday.

    Ha ha… this is just a beginning for you, you have more roads but I am 44 years old gamer so that is a normal thing for me.

    BTW all of my games on quality physical CDs and DVDs like good old days. They are not HDD iso images and all patches-proper cracks into that seperate CDs-DVDs. Ready to play like old times…

    many games do not appear in the list because they are similar titles and compressed into 1 media. For example Thief means Thief 1+2+3, Manhunt means Manhunt 1+2, Splinter Cell means 1+2+3+4, Mafia means Mafia 1+2 etc… So I have more games than it appears in the list.
