Rainbow Skies

Rainbow Skies combines an RPG overworld, turn based strategy combat, fourth wall breaking dialogue and monster taming into this indie style game which seems to have all the elements for a retro yet unique take on the genre. The game itself is well executed, combat is fluid and you can pick or avoid battles as…

Touhou Genso Wanderer Reloaded

I love rogue likes; that quick paced dungeon delve which eschews story, graphics and everything else to get you straight into the action. Never ending randomized dungeons full of loot and chaos where you never know what’ll happen next. What’s this, Pandemonium? Sounds like fun- oh I’m dead. Back to the beginning?… God I hate…

The Lost Child

One of the great problems that power scaling RPGs face is they tend to have a slow start. You’ve no interesting abilities, the story is so vague there’s nothing to follow, level design is overly simple and it seems like the entire first level is set to tutorial difficulty. I won’t mince words; my first…

Moonlighter

The first thing I heard about Moonlighter was ‘Recettear mixed with Zelda’, and immediately I knew this was the type of game that was perfect for me. For those unfamiliar with the initial game, it involved delving dungeons and managing a shop, and both combat and your shop keeping role had a considerable amount of…

Caveman Warriors

Does every modern era game have to be about zombies or Nazis? JanduSoft says no. Here, have some delightful caveman antics in a retro caveman platformer that may evoke nostalgia of all those classics that if you’re under 25 you’ve never heard of. So is this a shining gem or a prehistoric turd? A bit…

The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2

It’s nice to see a good idea improved upon and the flaws mostly ironed out, and that’s what you get with this stand alone game. Of course, with the Revival Edition of the first on PS4 it’s convenient to try that one out if you wish but as this game has its own story with…

Persona 5

JRPGs need some serious help. When I was a child, I played a game called Final Fantasy VI. It was one of my first turn based RPGs, and it remained my all time favourite game through multiple generations of consoles. Even though no RPG ever topped it, Squaresoft kept putting out memorable and popular new…

Top 5 World of Warcraft Zones

When a game has been around for over 10 years and 6 expansions, you know that there will be a lot of ground to cover. Countless hours were spent searching every nook and cranny of Azeroth and it is now time to highlight some of the very best it has to offer. It was a…
