Dex: Enhanced Edition

On the heels of Cyberpunk 2077, the recent release of Blade Runner – The Final Cut on Netflix, and the ongoing speculations about a possible season 3 of Altered Carbon, comes a neo-noir, cyberpunk, 2D action-RPG called Dex for the Nintendo Switch. Published by QubicGames and developed by Dreadlocks, Dex was originally released on the…

Hellpoint

I’m sure there will come a point where the market is so saturated with soulslikes that they start to feel like the new ‘everything must have zombies’ fad, but we’re still in the larval state since perhaps wisely people waited for From to decide to finish Dark Souls before they all threw their hats in.…

Mortal Shell

Smart level design, beautiful scenery, tight gameplay mechanics and a consistent challenge make Mortal Shell the most polished Soulslike I have yet played. The game knows what it wants to be, and by all indications they accomplished it perfectly. While there are design decisions I do not enjoy, their intended execution is as close to…

Skater XL

Space Gladiators: Escaping Tartarus

I really didn’t have any expectations when Space Gladiators: Escaping Tartarus was brought to my attention. I knew that I was getting pretty tired of roguelikes, which would not work in its favor, but had heard nothing about the actual game. Now, after dozens of hours and countless runs, I can say that it is…
