56 / 100 - Soulstice
Sep 23, 2022

A meaty action game let down by a persistently rubbish camera and a lack of variation in its stages.

Come for the mystery, stay for the characters in this baggy but compelling visual novel sequel.

79 / 100 - Weird West

Look past the murky aesthetic and clunky combat: this is an exciting fusion of immersive sim and CRPG.

Mar 9, 2022

Great music, delivered in frustratingly bitty form. A clever rhythm game that doesn't mesh with its prominent story.

It might not fully satisfy match-3 fans, then, but this is still a delectable puzzler wrapped in an engaging fantasy story, served with a side of so-so platforming. It's with great skill that Trinket Studios has managed to make that unusual combination work at all, even if I'm left longing for a more developed follow-up that makes the most of every one of its inspired ingredients.

71 / 100 - Wunderdoktor
Oct 31, 2017

Wunderdoktor's beautiful handmade world is a delight to travel through, but beneath that charming exterior lies a twitchy, unforgiving, and sometimes unrewarding puzzle game.
