    ToJam Thing is a game which was made for the Toronto Indie Game Jam back in 2006. That’s where it gets its name from. It’s neither about toes or any kind of jam, but it’s still quite an interesting turn on the arena shooter type of game.

    You play as a square, which turns into a trapezium when moving, and you shoot bullets in the pattern of a helix and try to inflate red fuzzy things, which in turn, destroy others. It’s all very technical. Though all you really need to remember is you drive the square with the arrow keys and shoot with the WASD keys.

    Starting off with only a small amount of enemies, you’ll quickly become versed in the art of blowing them up – a skill which requires you to stand on one side of them and shoot until they burst. Soon you’ll notice that if you partially inflate some, then burst one, the partially inflated ones will, in turn, burst others. It’s a skill, but if done right, can be very rewarding.

    Points also come in the form of little white cubes. These are dropped by exploding red fuzzies and you can collect them before they vanish. Like the reds exploding, if you get enough in a row, then that increases your combo and also your overall score.

    The basic thing you’ll have to remember is that you move with the arrow keys and shoot with the letter keys, the points, combos, bonuses - they’re all well and good. But the heart of the game is simple, simple fun. That’s what it is. And it’s interesting, to boot.
