Although I speak very highly of Cuphead, I do think the game can be a little too unforgiving in enemy attack patterns and their ability to hit from offscreen without much warning. Regardless, the game's tight controls, fun boss fights, and pleasing aesthetic make it a must have.
Don't bother unless you enjoy playing the same mission over and over again with no guarantee of any sort of pay off. The (very) few good things this game has going for it are completely dwarfed by the poorly implemented or flat out reprehensible systems that the entire experience hinges on.
A must-have for any platforming fan. Nearly everything is perfect in this game. If the soundtrack was a bit more memorable and the game didn't stutter when a new song played, I'd give the game a 10 without question. But unfortunately, I can't look past all the deaths this glitch caused me or how bored I was by the new list of songs.
Sporting more interesting mechanics than you can shake an oversized sword at, Battle Chasers has a little bit of everything from classic turn-based JRPGs for everyone. Even though it loses the wow factor on subsequent runs, the dungeon delving has a lot to offer and can hide some rather sneaky secrets. Not a bad title by any means, only a little repetitive, despite its efforts to be otherwise.
Featuring a stunning low-poly art style, a wonderfully well-integrated soundtrack, an ingeniously simple control scheme, an interesting transformation mechanic, and impressively designed temples, AER has a lot going for it. It's unfortunate that the experience is as short as it is and there is no way to keep track of what's been seen. A few more environmental puzzles and a simple journal would fix my only complaints about this exploration-heavy title.
Sporting everything from a new and improved Fibbage to brand new games with new ways to play, it is actually rather impressive that each of these Party Packs continue to feature such fun games. Barring a few technical issues, I only saw minor issues in any of the games and would gladly recommend them all to friends looking for a way to entertain guests.
With a distinct sense of humour and a few secrets hidden beneath its cutesy demeanor, Wuppo will surprise any player that hasn't seen it in action before. This sense of surprise is consistent throughout and is only made that much better when bosses are introduced. Interesting areas with bizarre characters and tons of items to play with, Wuppo will keep you busy for a remarkable amount of time.
What are you waiting for? Go forth and take on the Dealer's challenge! Yes, you will need to manage your Resources, choose your Equipment carefully, plan for Encounters, and fight your way through many foes, but proving yourself is more than enough of a reward, is it not? The Game is waiting, take your seat and experience it for yourself.
Only a few new things from the most recent Artifex Mundi release. Same old quick and easy completion with its fair share of puzzles to solve and hidden objects to find. Still art looks great while animations, voice acting, and narrative are a bit lacking. Arguably one of the better titles released by the studio.
