7 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 19, 2018

While visually stunning at times, the simple gameplay of 'GRIS' often lacks color, resulting in an experience that is aesthetically stimulating but surprisingly passive. There is breezy fun to be found in the cute platforming puzzles, but players who value gameplay over graphics may be disappointed in the simplicity and brevity of the journey.

7 / 10.0 - Viviette
Dec 19, 2018

'Viviette' attempts to recreate the mystery and horror of games like 'Resident Evil' within a more 16-bit setting, and for the most part works.

7 / 10.0 - 7 Billion Humans
Nov 3, 2018

There will likely be plenty of Human Resource Machine fans who fall in love with 7 Billion Humans, and work diligently to optimize their programs. Still, puzzle solvers who aren’t versed in these concepts may be faced with tougher roadblocks then their colleagues when trying to ascend the corporate ladder.

Another fantastic and funny splatter-filled puzzler that offers a ton of content for players to slice and dice their way through. Though it feels like the slasher film references could have been pushed further, the core gameplay is meticulous and satisfying.

Still, for those who fondly remember running, jumping, and the excitement of hoping they land in precisely the right spot despite being slightly disoriented, De Blob 2 will be like sitting down with an old pal they haven’t seen in ages.

6.5 / 10.0 - Figment
Jun 28, 2018

'Figment' wants to tap into the limitless potential of the mind, but ultimately comes up with a safe, mostly uninspired puzzle adventure. Rich music and some clever brain-teasers highlight the 4-5 hours of gameplay, but tedious mechanics and solutions, as well as repetitive visuals that can't quite capture the imagination, keep the game from realizing its full potential.

8 / 10.0 - Dandara
Feb 7, 2018

A solid Metroidvania elevated by a unique gameplay mechanic. 'Dandara' suffers a bit when it focuses more on combat than exploration, but never strays from the path for to long. Visually and aurally pleasing, its odd world doesn't come with much narrative, but still manages to tell a story via its atmosphere.

Despite very simplistic gameplay and challege, 'Yono and the Celestial Elephants' does have some personality and charm going for it, as well as some oddly frank discussions on deep philosophical topics.

7.5 / 10.0 - Mr. Shifty
Apr 17, 2017

Though lacking in polished visuals and complexity of design, 'Mr. Shifty' still drives home the sheer pleasure of its teleportation-based combat, offering a satisfying way to spend a few hours punching bad guys in the face.

7.5 / 10.0 - Snipperclips
Mar 11, 2017

Fun paper-slicingg gameplay provides plenty amusing multiplayer puzzle-solving moments, despite the relative lack of challenge. With only 45 stages, 'Snipperclips' can feel like a trimmed experience, just warming players up to its novel, physics-based ideas before cutting to the credits, but it's quite entertaining while it lasts.
