ScourgeBringer Early Access preview: A furious ball of destruction

scourgebringer
The ancient war machines standing in my way are no match for me. I jump, dash, slash, and slice, and within a few seconds, they are in pieces. I blaze on from room to room until I miscalculate, and a blast to the face kills me. "No worries," I think to myself as I buy some upgrades...

Effie review: Nostalgia spread a little too thin

effie
Inspired by multiple classic titles, Effie combines fun combat and platforming with an empty world to underwhelming results. I'm a massive fan of platformers and colorful action-adventure games. Being on the same playing field as indie gems like A Hat in Time and the wacky Lego games, Effie has its work cut out for...

Need For Speed Heat
In less than two weeks, we'll be prowling the neon-streaked streets of Need For Speed Heat. While the previous few titles in the franchise took a different direction, after playing the demo of Heat, it's safe to say that the series is trying to get back on track. Going back to the roots of...

Neo Cab review: Let’s talk about our feelings

Neo Cab review
Neo Cab is a story about having conversations and staying in touch with our emotional state. It's too bad the art direction does not do justice to its diverse characters. It's important to stay in touch with our emotions. In a week (and sometimes a day), we experience a complete spectrum of them, from...

Main Assembly
Everyone loves creating; and solving puzzles; and robots. Robots are cool. Indie developer Bad Yolk takes all of that and assembles it for something new with Main Assembly, a robot-building puzzle game coming very soon to Steam Early Access. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCfLSqOth9Q Thinking Outside the Bots "But isn't...

Devil’s Hunt review: A fallen angel

Devil's Hunt review demons
Devil's Hunt is a mess of cliché story and awkward combat. Its art direction and camera work are not impressive enough to redeem it. Arcade action games, especially ones with a solid story, are always a joy to play. Devil May Cry and God of War are among the very best in the genre,...

Creature in the Well review: Hits a few bumpers

Creature in the Well review
Creature in the Well can be a beautiful and intense bullet hell if you can make it past the repetitive first half. I was very excited about Creature in the Well when it was first announced on Nintendo Direct. A dungeon crawler with pinball-based combat and puzzle-solving is an intriguing concept. Besides, I always...

Star Renegades combines a classic JRPG with Shadow of Mordor

star renegades combat
Star Renegades immediately stands out due to its impressive pixel art visuals. But after playing it at Gamescom 2019, I can tell you there are many more reasons to be excited about this roguelite RPG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fe0gqTU3Bg Star Renegades plays like a classic JRPG - you meet characters throughout a...
