Etherborn is now available, and it offers up some unique twists on the platforming, exploration, and puzzle video game genres. This is thanks to its brilliantly designed, and challenging levels, which are the puzzles themselves due to how gravity affects the player at each an every turn.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night may have shipped with a nasty bug, and it definitely has some rage inducing boss battles, but in the end its challenges and homages to the Metroidvania genre keep it feeling rewarding and very fun to play. Just prepare to be flustered.
The latest Indie gem to come from Devolver Digital is now here, and if you love oddball types of games that offer up unique gameplay experiences and sentient bananas, then My Friend Pedro will be right up your demented, side-scrolling shooter loving alley.
Unruly Heroes is a new multi-platform title from Magic Design Studios that features Action/Adventure style gameplay set in a beautiful looking, mystical land, with a narrative based on the Monkey King Legend. Its mix of platforming, combat, and puzzle-solving offers up a nice variety of gameplay, and while the combat controls leave much to be desired and can cause a bit of rage at times, the overall experience is still pretty enjoyable.
Darksiders 3 opted to strip itself down a bit when compared to what Darksiders 2 offered, but after spending time with it, the game’s relatively straightforward experience can grow on you if you’re into challenging games that don’t hold your hand. If you wanted more of what you got in the last game though, you will be let down, because this sequel leans more towards a Dark Souls-lite experience than a new Darksiders one.
