Another Code: Recollection is a smart and well-made revival for the beloved series that be believed was long forgotten by Nintendo: we are happy to know that it wasn't and that new players and long-time fans alike can now enjoy these two games on their Nintendo Switch.

Little Goody Two Shoes was a pleasant surprise. Drawing inspiration from a well-known fairy tale, the game weaves an intriguing narrative that seamlessly blends various storytelling genres, aesthetics, and gameplay elements. The developers transition from an idyllic and fairy-tale atmosphere to grotesque nightmares effortlessly, and the entire experience is presented in an engaging way, even in the game mechanics. While there are aspects that could have been improved, and the overall story is enjoyable but not particularly memorable, it leaves us eagerly anticipating new projects from the AstralShift team.

Hitman: Blood Money Reprisal still stands as an excellent chapter in Agent 47's saga, taking us back to the heart of the '00s with more compact levels, though not entirely sacrificing the freedom offered to the player. The game has aged better than we might have expected, at least in terms of gameplay, and the mobile conversion work has proven to be quite good overall. Nevertheless, we hesitate to call this version the best way to do justice to the game, as it still remains more enjoyable in its console releases, of course.

Jumanji: Wild Adventures is the classic tie-in crafted without much effort, but doing the bare minimum to realise an adventure capable of eliciting just a smile from franchise fans and those who will play it together. And that's a real shame, as the IP would be a perfect fit for a more ambitious video game.

Super Crazy Rhythm Castle it's a real surprise. It's a rhythm game that cleverly plays with the genre's rules, crafting a bizarre yet irresistible experience, especially enjoyable when shared with others. Of course, it still remains a rhythm game, and its quirks will likely make it appealing to a niche audience; however, once you overcome this initial hurdle, it's probably one of the best co-op experiences of the year.

The game does nothing new but works for what it wanted to do: making young players have fun and feel that it's (almost!) Christmas time!

6 / 10.0 - CRYMACHINA
Oct 27, 2023

Crymachina does not represent the triumphant return that many had hoped for for FuRyu Corporation. The game has a story that, while potentially interesting, feels like it's wasting its potential, in part due to an overly stereotypical cast of characters, which could fit well in a teen drama.

Agatha Christie - Murder on the Orient Express is a good adventure and a faithful adaptation of the timeless classic of mystery, but it settles for just that. On the narrative front, despite some deviations from the original story, there are no standout twists that make this adaptation better than the many others offered in the past; as for the gameplay, the game does what is expected from a graphic adventure, without going above and beyond. This is not necessarily a flaw, but from an adaptation of a mystery masterpiece of this caliber, one might have expected something more.

8.8 / 10.0 - Cocoon
Oct 5, 2023

Cocoon is a beautiful puzzle-adventure game that excels in creating a captivating atmosphere. Playing as the tiny insect protagonist on this adventure and guiding it through interconnected worlds provides an incredibly satisfying experience, setting it apart from the creator's previous works. It may not redefine the genre, but it's a title worth trying out for any gamer.

Detective Pikachu: The Return is a definite step forward from the first installment, but it still lacks that quality leap that could make this subseries a must for franchise fans. The main charm of the adventure lies in the charisma of its two protagonists and the opportunity to experience the Pokémon world in a different way compared to what the main series offers. However, the game's extreme simplicity, driven by the choice to make it accessible to a wide audience, may not satisfy all fans of the saga.

7 / 10.0 - PAYDAY 3
Sep 26, 2023

Payday 3 does what every sequel aims to do: it improves on its predecessor in every respect. We have a qualitative leap on a technical level, an improvement of the basic gameplay, more layered and exciting missions. Right from the start it is clear why the player should abandon Payday 2 to move on to this third episode. On the other hand, however, at launch we are experiencing numerous bugs and glitches, which while not deeply affecting the experience give the idea of a title that would have benefited from a few more months of development and which lacks a good dose of refinements.

7.6 / 10.0 - Eternights
Sep 23, 2023

Eternights may not be a game-changer for the genre, but it still offers a solid experience, thanks to a strong cast of characters and an engaging gameplay, especially in its dating sim aspect. It caters to a very specific audience and will likely thrive within its niche; however, if you have even a remote interest in this genre, we recommend giving it a chance: you won't regret it.

The first DLC of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet surprised us with a more intimate story, linked to the folklore of Nordivia; A nice change of tone and rhythm, after the main story had accustomed us to much worse threats. That's what we liked most about the DLC, along with the addition of new Pokémon to catch and new areas to explore.

Goodbye Volcano High is a very intriguing graphic adventure that intelligently explores sensitive themes such as those related to the LGBTQIA+ community and climate change. It weaves a compelling story around these topics and presents a cast of characters that are easy to connect with. While it may have some minor flaws that prevent it from receiving higher ratings, it still manages to offer something meaningful to anyone who plays it – and that's no small feat.

7.4 / 10.0 - Fae Farm
Sep 6, 2023

Fae Farm is a nice and cozy life simulator, but a dull cast of characters and a repetitive gameplay keep it away from greatness.
