Elex

Game reviewed on the PS4 with a copy provided by THQ Nordic. Developer Piranha Bytes has made a history of creating games that were considered above all else as polarizing. While the Gothic and Risen franchises were not able to find large scale success due to their buggy or lacking nature, it did not stop…

Orange Moon

Orange Moon is a 2D action side-scroller from developer Betelgeuse Zero and published by Meridian4. It uses a simple graphic style that relies on high contrast black and orange imagery and animations that would look more at home in early 2000s flash game. The music and sound are there to try and give the game…

Vive Le Roi

Vive Le Roi is an indie stealth puzzle game developed by Sylvain Seccia and published by Meridian4. A phone game with a PC release, Vive Le Roi relies on art style more than graphical power to get across the game’s simple but solid mechanics. The sound does its job but the music is repetitive and…

Phantom Trigger

Phantom Trigger is described as a hardcore neon slasher which is really accurate. Created by Bread Team, a team comprised of two people, and I have to say they did one hell of a job with this game. Phantom Trigger is about Stan, a man who has just found out he is dying. Phantom Trigger…

Citadale – The Legends Trilogy

Castlevania is a series with some hits and misses that is none the less a household name. While today entries can be found across many platforms, it planted its roots on a Nintendo console. As the decades passed, there came many imitators with Citadale – The Legends Trilogy now hoping to achieve success with a…

A Robot Named Fight

When I first read about the concept for A Robot Named Fight I was hesitant to say the least. It is necessary to be objective when reviewing games but the thought of a Metroidvania style game that was procedurally generated and roguelike just struck me as something I would hate. Much of my success in…

Tangledeep

I am going to dive right into it and reveal the biggest reason that Tangledeep was just not for me, which could coincidentally be the most appealing for others, the difficulty. To clarify, I am not referring to those instances of the random generator creating an unlucky situation that leads to a death, which did…

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest is a magnificent game. This review will not be about discovering if the title made a good first impression but rather examining how they have now made a lasting impression. Other would-be game designers should look at what developer Moon Studios was able to accomplish with their debut title and…

Redeemer

Redeemer is a top-down punch-and-shoot from Sobaka Studio and Gambitious Digital Entertainment. With rudimentary stealth options, a variety of weapons, and fast paced combat, Redeemer feels much like Hotline Miami without the one-shot kills. There’s a lot to like here but also a few hang-ups that could be addressed in future patches. The game follows…
