Thrillville: Off Binari, a roller coaster in pictures Among the relics of the past that Games with Gold is used to propose, this month we are dealing with Thrillville: Off the Track, originally released in 2007 on Xbox 360, developed by Frontier and published by the late LucasArts. It cannot be said that the 15 years that have passed since its original release do not feel on its shoulders, but it remains a game with a historical flavor, which moreover shows the origins of the long line of Frontier on simulations / management of theme parks, with this sequel to the old Thrillville which already showed some ambition on the part of the British team. The game has a dual nature, allowing you to build playgrounds with a certain creative freedom but also to directly experience the various pastimes present within them by taking part in various mini-games that make up the hybrid gameplay. There are a large amount of attractions and roller coasters to build and manage in Thrillville: Off the Tracks, various environments with which to characterize the theme park and 34 mini-games to take an active part in not forgetting a little action, therefore there are really many things to do. It is now a somewhat dated game, but as a historical curiosity it certainly has its value.

Originally released in 2009 on PC and later on various consoles, the game was created by Runic Games, a new team founded by several ex-Blizzard who had dealt with the development of the Diablo series, and the curriculum of the developers emerges clearly. Also in this case it is a matter of choosing a hero among three fighters with different appearance and characteristics and launching into the exploration of a single dungeon composed of several progressive levels, built with a mixed technique between manual modeling of graphic elements and random generation, in in order to always offer new challenges. The engine of Torchlight's action is the precious Ember found in the mines to be explored, but also the increasingly rich loot that awaits in the maze of the mines, in a system clearly similar to Diablo but also with some peculiar characteristics such as the presence of the pet and the "retirement" system of the characters.
