Trover Saves the universe is a basic platformer/action game, served by Justin Roiland's inimitable style and acting. Therefore, if you want to really enjoy the absurd and surrealist adventure of Trover through the entire space, you'd better really like the guy's tone, otherwise you will find a jolly VR game, not nothing unforgettable.

Cadence of Hyrule is a strong and inspired crossover between The Legend of Zelda and Crypt of the NecroDancer. By mixing the beloved world of Hyrule with the rhythm-based strategy of Brace Yourself's game, the studio delivers a colorful but brief adventure, served by a pleasant and varied soundtrack all along.

Gato Roboto offers a synthetic and concentrated experience of a Metroid-like adventure. doinksoft game's ticks every boxes of the genre, delivering a high-speed rhythm all the same, but falling short after three little hours.

6 / 10 - Observation
May 22, 2019

Observation delivers an interesting thriller story sets in space, through the eyes of SAM, the AI of a lost station. Fascinating until the very end, the story will appreciates itself only if you accept to endure cryptic puzzles and ever changing rules, in a labyrinth that can really drive you crazy.

By playing for the second time the mythology card, Ubosft delivers a strong, deep, and mostly beautiful extension for last year's greek odyssey. Switching between Layla and Kassandra/Alexios might be tedious in the begenning, but the gorgeous environment awaiting is worth the effort, thanks to an interesting plot, free exploration and a very correct length.

5 / 10 - Venture Kid
Apr 30, 2019

Venture Kid tries so much to pay tribute to the old 8 bit games, starting with Mega Man, that it got lost along the way. Without any original content to show, this mobile game delivers nothing new on PC or Switch, and lacks the length or level design of the great games it constantly quotes.

20 years after its first release, the Ace Attorney series reminds us how strong and unpredictable Shu Takumi's writing feels. With those linked three episodes, there is no reason not to enter the courtroom once again, even though Capcom could frankly have worked on some tiny options and bonuses to please the fans of old Nick.

Despite its title, Danganronpa Trilogy is nothing but a shiny new PlayStation 4 disc case including both Danganronpa 1 & 2 Reload and Danganronpa V3 : Killing Harmony. So there is nothing more to expect from it than three very good twisted visual novels reunited at last. SO much for the bonuses though.

Final Fantasy VII on Switch could easily have been one of the console's must have : its undeniable charm still works more than 20 years after its original release, but this stingy port still contains the horrible French localization from 1997, as well as the old PS4 bug which constantly reset the beautiful sounds of Nobuo Uematsu.

Following the series trademark mix of platformer and exploration, Yoshi's Crafted World delivers a pleasing experience, thanks to its both sides levels, with plenty of items to find and collect. Unfortunately, the game tries to hard to increase its lifetime by making the player go through the same levels over and over again. With stronger efforts on the soundtrack and and a better emphasis on the technical part, Yoshi's Crafted World could easily have been one of the best episodes of the series.

7 / 10 - Golf Peaks
Mar 23, 2019

Golf Peaks is the very same game which came out on any mobile phone store back in 2018. Without any new addition, Afterburn's puzzle game still delivers quite a dozen of pleasant challenges, thanks to its Joy-Con or touchscreen controls. Unfortunately, the game's difficulty remains unchanged, and those golf puzzles will be done in no time, leaving the player wanting for way much more.

9 / 10 - Baba Is You
Mar 18, 2019

Under the tune of a minimalist semantic puzzle game, Baba is You hides an extraordinary experience that will take you to the frontiers of reason and logic. By inviting the player to constantly change the rules of the game, Arvi Teikari makes every element present on the screen a potential source of interaction, and offers the genre a concept as diabolical as it is audacious.

The Legacy of the First Blade last part delivers a clumsy conclusion to Assassin's Creed Odyssey journey, by recycling the same missions and mechanics once more, only to lead its story to the end and satisfy some fans of the saga. With a single naval battle, a kind of cheated new ability and a bland last boss, this third DLC runs short on idea, and do not reach the quality of Assassin's Creed Odyssey main story.

Eight years after the original Wii version, this Extra Epic Yarn comes back on the old 3DS console, with a new diabolical mode which brings ' tiny bit of challenge to an overall very easy game. Its two new mini-games might be now enough to bring back the players of 2010, especially with a lower frame rate and no 3D effects at all. Still, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn still is a good platformer and might satisfy 3DS owners.

6 / 10 - Eastshade
Mar 2, 2019

Eastshade delivers an original first person walker experience with its anthropomorphic world where all you have to do is paint. Too bad its lacky graphics and chaotic frame rate ruins the mood more than once, because its wonderful soundtrack leaves the player with a strange bliss sensation. The benefit of a walk in the forest, no doubt.

8 / 10 - APE OUT
Feb 28, 2019

Ape Out is a clever mix somewhere between the twin stick shooter and the beat'em all genres, which rely on its colorful yet simple visuals and a fantastic sound design focus solely on the drums to deliver a violent and quite unique experience in a very, very difficult adventure to freedom. Those brave enough to fight hundreds of armed to the teeth guards will experience a tough but rewarding game will enjoy its beautiful artistic direction for sure.

Feb 25, 2019

Trials Rising sticks to its roots by offering and fun and challenging trip around the world, putting aside the flashy neon look of its previous entry. Its various locations and constant humour will as usual keeps players hooked up for hours, thanks to a solid content and a heavy soundtrack that might have benefit from more diversity.

Eighteen years after its original release on PlayStation, Final Fantasy IX is back on Switch, but with all the flaws inherited from the PC/PS4 port of 2017. But in the end, its compressed soundtrack and smartphone interface will not make us forget the greatness of such an adventure, which could have benefit from a sweeter launch price.
