Loves both playing games and writing about them. Works for pressakey.com and freelanced for several other German publications. The only person on earth waiting for the return of the best video game lizard ever, Gex.

Beyond Blue is neither fish nor whale and remains in every respect a trial dive, which as a game as well as an interactive documentary only scratches the surface of the possible. It's not about exploring and getting to know this fascinating habitat by yourself, but, as in underwater tourism, about grazing spot by spot and scanning as many animals as possible on the way. I appreciate the work that goes into Beyond Blue. But the bottom line is that it's just a trial dive with an omnipresent guide.

Masterpiece - Wavey The Rocket
Jun 3, 2020

This ride on the sine wave is delightful! Wavey the Rocket captivates the gamepad hour after hour with its creative game idea, precise controls and fair learning curve. Apart from tact, you should also have patience, because none of the more than 80 rocket courses is easy.

The Pedestrian is a highly creative, well-balanced and pleasantly challenging odyssey through the sign forest of a big city - and a real gem in the puzzle genre.

No Recommendation / Blank - Pokémon Sword and Shield
Jan 9, 2020

Pokémon Sword and Shield are cheaply produced, antiquated in every regard and no longer come even close to living up to the great name of the brand. "It's Pokémon" can no longer be an excuse - it's exactly the fact that it is Pokémon why it has to be more than what it is. And right now, Sword and Shield are one thing above all else: two really bad video games.

In his third appearance as a ghost hunter Luigi experiences his biggest, most beautiful and best adventure so far! Next Level Games stage an incredibly loving horror holiday with the charm of an animated film and an impressive attention to detail from beginning to end. For me, Luigi's Mansion 3 is one of the switch highlights of 2019.

A powerful Mech construction kit, Daemon X Machina is a dream for all fans of combat robots, but as an action game it is a repetitive occupational therapy. It's a shame that the game design hasn't received as much lifeblood.

Katrielle's first adventure was well transferred to the Nintendo Switch and extended with some nice extras, but is basically a disappointing Layton, which suffers from its weak story and fluctuating puzzle quality.

Unscored - Tangle Tower
Oct 29, 2019

The game idea is traditionally good, the story interesting, the puzzles good, the ideas and loving details abundant: I was about to recommend Tangle Tower as a real alternative to Professor Layton - when the game was suddenly far too early, far too abrupt and above all over with far too many open questions and logic holes. All the work and effort that SFB Games put into character drawing and building a great mystery in the first few hours suddenly coincides like a house of cards. Maybe it was due to a lack of time or resources - after all, there aren't even any puzzles left towards the end. Tangle Towers should be a little adventure pearl with its quirky characters, high-quality presentation and good puzzles - but it stumbles over a much too early, abrupt and illogical ending.

Playtonic and Yooka-Laylee are successful in the second attempt and with one dimension less: The search for the Beettalions is a wonderful jump'n'run adventure that can keep up with Donkey Kong Country in its best moments and sets new standards in the genre with a great world map. What a positive surprise!

Three Houses is a promising first step towards a new era for Fire Emblem, and a solid foundation for the next games to come. While it does lack challenge and depth in exploring the monastery, it excels in other areas, mostly in its rich and captivating universe, unique characters and advanced turn-based combat. The journey to the grand finale is long, but it's a memorable one that will please not just long-time Fire Emblem fans.
