Ragdoll Matrix is a fun freeware action game made with Game Maker by Artturi Piipponen. Inspired by tAAt’s Truck Dismount and Stair Dismount games, the purpose of Ragdoll Matrix, as the name suggests, is to dodge bullets for as long as possible by moving a two-dimensional “ragdoll” that can defy gravity at will. Aside from obeying real-world physics, the game offers much more than first meets the eye: you can unlock a lot of cool moves and even additional game modes. While the graphics looks drab and there is not much “background graphics” to speak of, the game is compelling enough to keep you hooked on the screen for “just one more try.” Although it is not as charming and addictive as tAAt’s games, Ragdoll Matrix is a fun game in its own right that fans of games based on real-world physics, or the Dismount games, will definitely enjoy. All in all, this is a great time-waster for those short coffee breaks, and the author is hard at work on a two-player version that will definitely be reviewed here at some point. Recommended!
