4 / 5.0 - Gato Roboto
May 30, 2019

While Gato Roboto could stand to be a more fleshed-out metroidvania game, it's still a highly enjoyable action game overall. Kiki's adventure is one chock full of classic NES-era action, nicely challenging combat, fun gameplay and charming visuals. It's a short burst of action, but one you won't forget anytime soon. So thankfully, there is more to the game to love beyond just a cat inside a mechanical suit. But come on, can you really resist Kiki's kickass cuteness?

4 / 5.0 - Observation
May 21, 2019

While it could have done more with its central concept, Observation is a terrific, thrilling adventure game and a superb follow-up for No Code. The blend of the realistic workings of space exploration along with more bizarre elements is perfectly executed and creates an engrossing story with a haunting atmosphere that you'll want to see through.

4 / 5.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 22, 2019

It would have been nice if Pikuniku was longer and had a bit more to its story, if only because it means spending more time with its interesting and charming world. Still, what we have is a fun blend of physics-based gameplay, traditional platforming, exploration, eye-catching art and a fun cast that makes for one cute, highly-enjoyable experience. It's a quick little romp through a gleefully bizarre world that you won't regret checking out.

Despite a few wonky issues with combat at times, YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG more than succeeds in delivering a fascinating and unique tale that isn't afraid to get bizarre and humorous while still making you sympathize with its cast and keeping you on the edge of your seat.

4 / 5.0 - Mega Man 11
Oct 1, 2018

Even if it could stand to benefit from a little something extra, this is still a triumphant return for the Blue Bomber. Mega Man 11 is another stellar entry in the series, plain and simple.

While SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy has the potential to be a fun hunk of cheese and fanservice, ultimately it relies too much on the game's premise to carry things.

3 / 5.0 - Morphies Law
Aug 30, 2018

Morphies Law is the rare multiplayer game these days where the offline mode is the vastly superior option.

3.5 / 5.0 - Strange Brigade
Aug 28, 2018

Strange Brigade is one of those difficult games to review, the one where for every positive thing you have to say about it, there's a downside related to or accompanying it in some way or another.

When all is said and done, Omensight ends up being a dazzling piece of work, a terrific action RPG game with fast and fun combat that works perfectly alongside a well-crafted and impressive mystery that's guaranteed to keep you addicted until you've figured everything out.

3.5 / 5.0 - Extinction
Apr 9, 2018

While there's joy to be found in decapitating a seemingly-endless army of building-sized beasts that put up an immense fight, Extinction sadly never delivers a true killing blow in any one area, just a bunch of solid strikes with some notable misses.

3.5 / 5.0 - Sea of Thieves
Mar 29, 2018

When Sea of Thieves clicks, most likely because you have a full galleon of fellow pirates to work with, it can create a rousing, fun experience whether completing a long voyage for the Gold Hoarders or even just sailing around, looking for any hidden secrets or loot.

1.5 / 5.0 - Super Seducer
Mar 7, 2018

It's going to be tempting for many of you to buy Super Seducer solely for the unintentional hilarity and maybe even write an “ironic” positive review for it based on that alone.

3.5 / 5.0 - Fear Effect Sedna
Mar 5, 2018

Fear Effect Sedna is a flawed return for the late PS1-era classic, with its combat occasionally being a bit clunky and not utilizing the tactical elements as well as it wanted to. But the creepy descent into Inuit horror, stylish graphics, and challenging puzzles and gameplay may still provide you with enough reasons to take a peek at it.

One might say that Where the Water Tastes Like Wine isn't for everyone, that it may be seen as a more "artistic" title with a smaller amount of gameplay.

1.5 / 5.0 - Past Cure
Feb 27, 2018

Phantom 8 Studio shouldn't be discouraged from future attempts at delivering a cinematic experience of a game on par with triple-A output, because they still have some neat ideas and directions to take.
