Alisa is a very pleasant, albeit late, surprise for the Switch. An excellent addition to the horror library alongside the aforementioned classics, but also others such as Outlast, Witch’s House and IB. For those looking for a tribute to the sick and macabre, Alisa is the most accurate of homages to the narratives that scare our dreams.

Contra: Operation Galuga is a hard game. It's a good reinterpretation of an eternal classic but it has severe errors in execution. It's possible to see a soul and heart in the development, but it's also obvious that some adjustments were necessary (I myself was stuck in a bug that put me off screen, quickly eliminating my lives).

9.5 / 10.0 - qomp2
Mar 19, 2024

qomp2 is such a pleasurable adventure that it leaves you wanting more. If the game has a flaw, it's perhaps the lack of content: 30 super quick levels to beat and achievements to unlock, but that's it.

9 / 10.0 - Torn Away
Mar 11, 2024

Even with small flaws, Torn Away is beautiful and raw. There are several media that show war not as glorious, but the worst fate for humanity, the game joins this pantheon with a tragic, sympathetic, destructive and hopeful story. War is worse than Hell. No one deserves to die for the cruel interests of others. Especially the innocent lives trapped in the oppressive gazes of small minds. The game is a dedication to all the souls taken by petty conflicts.

Mediterranea Inferno is an example. Artistic, creative, with strong representativity and a reflex of what we could call the Second Lost Generation. It's tough to recommend the game due to its heavy topics and the lack of [Portuguese] translation, but even so it's a game to, at least, appreciate the design and music. There's beauty even in the hardest moments, especially for those who want to reconnect. Stay well, please.

Looking Up I See Only A Ceiling is literally a fight against time. Short, engaging and real, it's a necessary fight for the current times.

This trilogy is a testament for the new generation, proof of the legacy of one of the icons of pop culture and women empowerment. When a relic is rediscovered, it naturally has breaks and aging signs, but that doesn't make it less valuable. Lara Croft has never been more beautiful and powerful.

7.5 / 10.0 - Pesterquest
Dec 8, 2023

Just like Hiveswap Friendsim, I recommend Pesterquest, but there's a caveat. Just like its predecessor, the game is confusing, weird and can be frustrating at times with its annoying protagonist, but it still presents something that kept bringing me back to the game: the characters' charm, the simplicity of wishing for friends, and the good atmosphere.

7.5 / 10.0 - Hiveswap Friendsim
Dec 6, 2023

Now comes the golden question: do I recommend Hiveswap Friendsim? I pondered about it a lot while playing and, in the end, I'd say it's worth knowing this peculiar universe. It's a confusing, weird game, and it may be frustrating sometimes, but it also has something that always brought me back to playing it: the characters' charm, the simplicity of wishing for friends, and the good ambiance. It may be imperfect but that does not mean it's bad.
