Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Those gamers looking for a traditional turn based RPG are left with fewer and fewer options as the biggest names of the genre shift towards more action oriented combat styles. As a result, the indie, digital and budget release markets must be more heavily relied on in order to find that fix. This is where…

The Adventure Pals

2d platformers have always had their share of weird. Remind me why I’m jumping on these flying turtles and chestnuts with feet again? Wait, I’m supposed to fling this piece of meat through all those grinders? Massive Monster’s The Adventure Pals is no different from its predecessors in this respect. As a kooky platformer that…

Titan Quest

Titan Quest is a re-release for modern day consoles of a PC title that originally came out in 2006 and its first expansion pack The Immortal Throne from the following year in one package. There aren’t a lot of companies that would attempt to revive a game 12 years later but with THQ Nordic purchasing…

Golf Story

The Pixelated Golf Game We All Needed! First off, let me get this loud statement off my chest: OH MY GOD! Where has Golf Story been all my life? Let’s think back to the days of Golf for NES (Nintendo Entertainment System for all you young folk). The crisp sounds, the simplistic control system, the…

This game screams “on-the-go” and this is exactly what Clustertruck wants to be. The idea for this game is simple: you start on the back of a transport truck in first-person…

Mulaka

Another Game that Suffers from “Am I Close to the End Yet?” Syndrome A game with collectables, cultural storytelling, action, adventure and puzzles. All of these elements would naturally make for an amazing game. Some would even say it sounds like a Zelda-esque type experience. Unfortunately for Mulaka, developed by indie studio Lienzo, the fun…

Atomik – RunGunJumpGun

  When I first sat down to play Atomik: RunGunJumpGun I was immediately drawn in by its art style which reminded me of an old NES game with a modern twist, a familiar nostalgia trip despite never really playing a title quite like it. The game’s simple yet elegant 2 button design gets you into the fun immediately and…

Celeste

To be honest, I have not been able to gush about a game in quite some time. I have been poking and prodding my way around games trying to find that fix that would keep me hooked for hours and hours. Do you ever just start a game and know from the very first screen…
