7 / 10 - Pikuniku
Feb 1, 2019

A charming little adventure with a good heart, a quirky atmosphere and a fascinating tone. Pros and cons can for once essentially be the same: some will be delighted by the randomness and the utter simplicity of the whole experience, while others might find it a bit too much.

6.5 / 10.0 - Vane
Jan 16, 2019

Despite the magnificent aesthetic inspiration and the stunning overall atmosphere, Friend & Foe is unfortunately no Team ICO (especially concerning some of the key aspects that make a video game worth playing): as a result Vane is an imperfect, uneven and at times even excruciating adventure. But also one that, along with its lows, is still capable of memorable, evocative highs.

7.3 / 10.0 - The Gardens Between
Oct 10, 2018

The Gardens Between is a game that's overall pretty fun to play, but also one that won't leave you with very much in the end: a not so insignificant flaw for something that's trying to celebrate the value of remembrance.

It's hard to say if the old concept of 'killer application' still makes sense in 2018, but in any case do not miss this wondrous space Odyssey: if you already own PlayStation VR absolutely play this memorable platformer, and if you don't... here's a solid reason to get

Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle is a celebration of cult classics and a tribute to a beloved genre that was never forgotten: for 19.99' you can bring yourself home a piece of history that still deserves to be discovered and played, one continue after another. In other words, don't miss this hymn to pure arcade fun.

3.5 / 10.0 - Immortal: Unchained
Sep 11, 2018

Immortal: Unchained is an intriguing premise ' the concept of a sci-fi soulslike based on firearms ' ultimately turned into one of the worst video games in years: a game that's uninspired, ill-conceived and at times completely broken. Do yourself a favor and stay away from a frustrating experience that simply isn't worth your time and money.

7.5 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Aug 28, 2018

Strange Brigade is a guilty pleasure that's not easy to resist to: despite a few flaws, Rebellion managed to create a competent third person shooter that oozes with character.

7.2 / 10.0 - Guacamelee! 2
Aug 21, 2018

A very traditional sequel of a little indie cult: Juan's return is still OK, but ultimately lacks the inspiration and the freshness that made the original so great. Maybe Guacamelee! was simply a better game overall, or maybe smash hits such as Hollow Knight and Dead Cells changed the face of the metroidvania genre for good: eventually Guacamelee! 2 leaves a pretty nice impression, but one that's far from the stellar debut.

Donkey Kong is a pleasant expansion, with a gameplay changed and adapted to the needs of the characters. Inspired, colored, passionate, he only sins in the repetitiveness of his enemies.

This is not the average campaign add-on you might legitimately expect: Octo Expansion offers a far more demanding (and not always 100% fair) experience. A series of 80 levels that will definitely engage hardcore veterans, but that at the same time might turn off players not too fond of game over screens.

8 / 10.0 - Mario Tennis Aces
Jun 20, 2018

Colorful, intuitive, deep and incredibly fun, Mario Tennis Aces is truly something for everyone, from casual newcomers to seasoned hardcore gamers. You'll certainly love its unique arcade soul and its rewarding gameplay (especially in multiplayer), yet you'll also regret its disappointing single player components.

For 29.99€ you'll bring yourself home more than fifty titles that changed the gaming history in the early 90s: SEGA Mega Drive Classics is definitely a reasonable package, one that's pretty well built considering the variety of the selection and the online support. Not everything has aged properly, but it's still well worth it (especially at this price and during this seemingly never-ending wave of nostalgia).

6.9 / 10.0 - Donut County
May 9, 2018

Donut County is a quirky puzzle-action inspired by Katamari Damacy: behind its weird look and its zany concept the game hides a valuable lesson rooted in anti-consumerism and ecologism. Too bad that – not without a cruel paradox – a game about a hole in the ground that swallows everything inherently lacks so much depth.

7.7 / 10.0 - Subsurface Circular
Mar 28, 2018

Subsurface Circular is a fascinating and unique project, one that will probably leave you something despite the short length. An incredibly well-written narrative adventure, built with passion, heart and elegance: if it.

8.5 / 10.0 - Celeste
Feb 5, 2018

Celeste is not only a brilliant platformer, one that will surely entertain you with its unusual difficulty and its astonishing level design. Celeste is a touching story about depression, a metaphor of life and ultimately a video game that will teach you a valuable lesson: never give in, no matter if you're dealing with a Gargantuan montain, a series of seemingly impossible jumps or anxiety. It might not be the next indie apocalypse, but it's still a product that's well worth of your time and money.

7.3 / 10.0 - Shooty Fruity
Jan 8, 2018

Shooty Fruity is a funny arcade shooter with a distinctive personality, one that will hook you with its immediate gameplay, its frantic shooting action and its quirky multi-tasking. You might encounter some technical limitations (due to the Move Controllers rather than the software itself), some questionable game design choices and a certain lack of contents, but it's hard not to smile when you have to use one hand to keep a group of wild rasperries at bay with a machine gun, while scanning products at a cash desk with the other.

7 / 10.0 - The Next Penelope
Dec 25, 2017

In a way, The Next Penelope is a truly impressive task, one that could be well worth of the labors of Hercules: it's the dream of a single and very talented designer turned into a peculiar mix of driving, adventure and shooter (with a kick-ass art direction). However, in another way this one-man project could also be considered as a missed opportunity: the single ingredients were probably better than the sum of their parts, and the final recipe feels a bit too short and half-baked.

8.2 / 10.0 - Crawl
Dec 19, 2017

Crawl and Nintendo Switch can be considered a match made in Heaven (or in Hell, considering the setting): absolutely enjoyable when played in two and potentially a blast with three or four players, this weird and highly original mix of genres is a perfect fit for those in search of a thrilling competition. Be warned: with the right group of people, Crawl could quickly turn into a little cult.

6.3 / 10.0 - Oure
Nov 4, 2017

As a simple collectathon built around the concept of flying around in a magnificent cloudy world, Oure does more than its job and ends up being a pleasant zen experience. However, whenever it tries to be something more – wheter it is by trying to push on the gameplay side or by evoking pure emotions – this very derivative game simply falls short, showing all the limits of a not so stellar production.
