Though Battle Shapes lacks online multiplayer, the high amount of polish, unlockables, and variety more than make up for it. Those looking for a more competitive take on Asteroids could do far worse than this title.
National Park Girls successfully manages to combine slice of life antics with a truly unique concept. Though it skews on the side of cute, what is here is a solid (if brief) visual novel that will appeal to fans of the genre.
Blask, though a bit on the light side, provides enough challenging puzzles for players to work their grey matter. Those who don't mind digging around for the right solution will enjoy playing with these beams of light.
Long Arm of the Law lives up to its title with a robotic appendage that is easy to learn and hard to master. Though it merely serves as a proof of concept, we look forward to seeing the future adventures of Motor Rockwell.
Another Sight – Hodge’s Journey drops the ball when it comes to both its level design and its platforming mechanics. Though it is short, it proves to be far too frustrating in the long term to get invested in.
Enchanted Path has got a great concept, but it is not taken far enough. Despite its handful of challenging puzzles, it is far too short and full of filler to make any sort of impact in the puzzle platforming space.
The Crown of Leaves is a disjointed visual novel that lacks consistency, and its anthropomorphic animals will only appeal to a select few. The end result is something that feels more like fanfiction than a fully fledged tale.
Dead or Alive 6 retains the stellar action the series is known for, but it doesn't do enough to warrant an immediate upgrade from previous entries. With only a handful of new fighters at launch, more casual fans might want to wait a bit.
Big Dipper's tale of romance and the holidays has merit, but the game could have used a good copy editor. In its current state, this visual novel is a bit too by-the-books to suggest for those looking for a good story.
Squidlit is overly simplistic by design, which somewhat works against it. Those that don't mind a short adventure will enjoy inking their way through its whimsical world, but those looking for something meatier might be disappointed.
