7 / 10 - APE OUT
Mar 7, 2019

Ape Out prioritizes style over substance, but it's weird and interesting enough to justify a play.

5 / 10 - Vane
Jan 15, 2019

Vane follows in the footsteps of many arty puzzle-platformers before it, but a lack of a strong voice and purpose keep it from being great.

Starlink is a fun, albeit repetitive, game of space combat and exploration--but the digital version of the game is the way to go if you're on a budget.

A puzzle-platformer as World War II allegory that can't settle on an appropriate tone or interesting puzzles.

Lamplight City is a detective adventure with a lot of good ideas, but it executes them with too light a touch.

6 / 10 - Donut County

Donut County is high on charm but short on substance; a game about holes that doesn't quite feel whole.

Jul 24, 2018

A level-morphing puzzle game with enough charm and ingenuity to overcome its control issues and short length.

5 / 10 - Rainbow Skies
Jul 8, 2018

A stuffy follow-up to Rainbow Moon that doesn't improve on its predecessor.
