Conglomerate 451 review: Some pain and no gain

Conglomerate 451 review
Conglomerate 451 takes intriguing cyberpunk themes and mashes them together into a repetitive and unrewarding gameplay experience, reserved to the most hardcore of players. Conglomerate 451 takes the undeniably cool themes of Cyberpunk and combines them with dungeon crawling and turn-based style Might & Magic or The Bard's Tale series. Unfortunately, the result is unbalanced, and either discourages you from taking...

Kunai review: A ninja Metroidvania-lite

Even though it's a mostly unchallenging game, Kunai is fast, charming, and above all - fun. Breezing through this Metroidvania as a ninja tablet just works. According to Wikipedia, Kunai is a Japanese tool commonly associated with the ninja and mostly used to gouge holes in walls. According to developer TurtleBlaze, Kunai is a stylish, fast-paced indie Metroidvania. At first, the...

The Blind Prophet review: Fighting demons and minigames

Despite a few minor flaws, The Blind Prophet is a solid adventure game with a dark story, classic point-and-click puzzles, and a beautiful hand-drawn art style. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, a year in development, and a few delays, The Blind Prophet - Blood of the Apostle is now available to all. The game combines classic point-and-click gameplay with comic book...

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 it if it wants to make...

Lightmatter review: Shines bright, but still overshadowed

Lightmatter review
Lightmatter is a gratifying puzzle game with a simple premise. It plays, looks, and sounds fantastic, but could do with fewer Portal references and a more robust story. It's been 13 years since Portal came out and blew us all away with its mind-bending puzzles and insanely good writing. Ever since then, we occasionally get a new Portal-like that follows...

Killer Chambers review: Oh Lord I died 273 times

Killer Chambers
Killer Chambers is an unforgiving action-platformer - a classic bullet-hell that will put your pattern-memorizing abilities and reaction time to the test. Jump over, duck under, and dodge deadly projectiles. But nevermind how good and how quick you are, your blood will still decorate the walls of the chamber. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjoW8HkF4XM Lord, I Don't Wanna Die Killer Chambers tells its story as a visual...

Ashen review: The world is brighter together

Ashen review
Ashen borrows a lot from the Dark Souls series but adds enough new elements to forge its own way and create a friendlier experience. You can't avoid it - Ashen borrows everything from Dark Souls. The combat system, enemies that lurk in dark corners waiting to jump you, the healing flask, manual saving at checkpoints - everything. You even lose...

Cardpocalypse review: Play like a 90’s kid, fight like a 90’s kid

Cardpocalypse review
Cardpocalypse is a cute title with simple but solid card game mechanics. It brings the '90s back and successfully charms you with its nostalgic mojo. Cardpocalypse brings a new card game to the table. It is easy to grasp, harder to master, but eventually, you'll dominate over every kid in your class. But what are you going to do when the...

Mosaic review: A cog against the machine

Mosaic review
A bleak point-and-click about work-life balance. Mosaic's dull atmosphere is punctuated with unique visuals, the power of music, and some seriously trippy gameplay. Mosaic is a statement about grind-culture and the stress, helplessness, and disillusionment burnout can cause. Or, it's a game about blowing off work to do recreational drugs with a bunch of jazz musicians and your pet goldfish. It...
