Minit Review: A Mini Majora’s Mask

If you only had one minute to live what would you do? This is the question Minit raises. In most games, dying is the main thing you are trying to avoid on your quest to complete objectives. However, Minit does not give you the option to stray from death. This is a unique adventure game […]

Candleman: the Complete Journey Review

Before you continue reading, I feel the need to let you know that this was reviewed using a review code provided by the developer and or a PR company. Imagine that ten seconds of light is the only thing separating you and certain doom, but using said light could also cost you everything. Do you […]

Bomb Chicken Review: A Clucking Good Game

You know that awesome scene in action movies where the actor gets to walk away while an explosion goes off behind them? Ever wanted to know what that feels like? Well, now you can…but as a chicken! Bomb Chicken is a unique puzzle game for the Nintendo Switch where you play as a very large […]

We Happy Few Review

We Happy Few takes place in an alternative English society, Wellington Wells, where from the inside everything seems perfect, but beneath everyone’s Cheshire-like grin lies something truly terrifying: a game that’s unable to realize its lofty ambitions. The year is 1964 and day-to-day life goes by with everyone smiling and overly giddy. The reason for […]

Slam Land Review: A Fighting Game Without Combat?

Once in a blue moon a game comes down the pipe that completely changes the landscape of gaming and redefines a genre, like Super Mario 64 did for 3D Platformers or World of Warcraft for MMORPGs, but sadly in the case of Bread Machine Games’ Slam Land, the lack of any sort of unlockables and […]

Dead Cells Review: A Quality Metroidvania within a Roguelike

Jumping into Motion Twins’ new roguelike, Metroidvania action game was a little frightening at first. I have a tough time with roguelikes and the whole permadeath mechanic. But I was anxious to try it out. The fantastic art style and the satisfying combat looked like a hell of a good time. After sinking my teeth […]

20XX Review : Mega Man X Without the Level Design

Mega Man fans have been craving jump-and-shoot action in what has been a long drought for the series. The last main title was released nearly a decade ago and the spiritual successor to the classic series, Mighty No. 9, failed to satiate players. But with the console release of 20XX, developed by Batterystaple Games and […]

Pool Panic Review

Billiards video games are a dime a dozen and to be honest, most of them don’t compare to the physical game itself. Not to say the game of pool is boring of any sort, it just doesn’t end well when it’s presented digitally. But developer Rekim has done something different with its sport-adventure game, Pool […]

Raft Review: Greatness Looms on the Horizon

Note: Raft is still an Early Access game, which means it is not a finished product. This review pertains only to the game that was available in July 2018. The ocean, a four by four raft, and a plastic hook. That’s the introduction to Raft, a game developed by Redbeet Interactive and published by Axolot Games […]

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds Review

Horizon Zero Dawn was personally my favorite game to release in 2017. It had an extensive layout of exploration, a main character that defined a strong independent female lead, and a story that kept players intrigued with its history and narrative. 8 months later and we received Horizon’s first downloadable content, The Frozen Wilds. The […]
