While it may look like a dirty cartoon, Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure is endearing and eminently playable.

A fantastic story well told, superbly presented. When it comes to point and click adventures on Steam, Kathy reigns.

7 / 10.0 - Dance Magic
Mar 15, 2016

Winning seems like an impossibility, but the actual core gameplay – the taking part – is so fun, that I cannot help but to play on. If you play this game, you'll likely be in the same boat.

8 / 10.0 - Hero and Daughter+
Mar 4, 2016

A fantastic RPG title that deserves your attention. Fair warning: if you do give this game your attention, good luck at prying it away. It's an addictive one...

Price aside, Aveyond 4 gives a good account of itself as a game, being well-made and charming. Just wait for a sale, as the current price may deter those not in the top 1%.

6.5 / 10.0 - Spellweaver
Feb 26, 2016

A perfectly functioning card game. Add two points to the score if you appreciate the majesty of the genre. For you, an 8.5/10. For the rest of us, 6.5.

Jaws made it scary to go into the water; this makes it seem all tranquil and comfy. A game absolutely worth playing if you love collecting or just want to relax.

It's big, mad, and difficult, but it looks and sounds great. Do not let this title shoot past you.

4.5 / 10.0 - Planet Diver
Jan 22, 2016

Frustrating, and flamboyant in all the wrong ways, Planet Diver is a total miss. Though, if the developers were looking to actively make a crap game, then they couldn't have planet better.

ROOT is an odd fish, but a pleasant surprise. Deep Fried have done well here.

A fine pack of party games with some true blue winners in the mix. The price may be a wee, tiny bit steep, but come on, can you put a price on hilarity?

I Can't Escape wants desperately to be Skyrim, but it looks more like Arena and plays like a game of touch the stove: it's a tedious and painful exercise. Buy only if you're looking to give yourself a weapons-grade migraine.

6.5 / 10.0 - Train Valley
Oct 7, 2015

Don't get me wrong, this is a fine, challenging little game, but I emphasise 'little'. This kind of game seems to befit the phone a tad more. Still, what we have here is good – up until you crash trains, that is...

To paraphrase Roger Ebert, this game doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This game isn't the bottom of the barrel. This game isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This game doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels!

Hard but satisfying – if you put in the time to get good, that is.

Westerado is presented gorgeously and proves itself as a great sandbox game. There is tons of fun to be had here, especially in the quest to find your family's murderer. Remember the name 'Ostrich Banditos'; if they keep making titles as good as Westerado: Double Barreled, we will be in for some cracking games for years to come.

Only once in a blue moon do the stars align to bring us a game as well-crafted and meaningful as Please, Don't Touch Anything. Genuinely thoughtful, challenging, and beautiful; this may not look like a winner, and will definitely be the source of at least one puzzle-related headache, but give it the time of day, and it will grip you hard.
