Final Fantasy VII Remake is a deep, dense and strong invitation to rediscover an all-time classic, thanks to a new three dimensional approach of the vast city of Midgar. The game fills up so many gap, deepens the plot, and sometimes takes way too much time to take us from point A to point B. But thanks to a strong and evolving combat system, new looks of iconic characters and a brilliant work of reorchestration of Uemtasu's score. If only it could have gone just a little further.

Hidden Through Time is what you can expect from a "Where's Waldo ?" video game look alive : it's fun, makes time fly, and let us focus on some big dioramas through many historical periods. Let's hope that the map editor will give player reasons to come back again and again.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is one of the most beautiful games you will play this year. Every stage is a visual and artistic masterpiece, and Gareth Coker's brillant soundtrack is the most delicious cherry on the cake. Unfortunately, the game still suffers from technical flaws, which have yet to be definitely fixed.

8 / 10 - Wunderling
Mar 6, 2020

Wunderling is a very clever 2D platfromer, filled with secrets and surprises, thanks to a brilliant level design, and a smart writing all the way. Triyng to stop the hero Carrot Man, our antihero walks by himslef through dozens of levels, gathering abilities which always enrich an already very strong formula. Every 2D platformer fan of the genre should definitely give it a try.

5 / 10 - Bloodroots
Feb 27, 2020

BloodRoots is unfortunately not as fun as its initial promise would have made us think. Despite the undeniable fun given by the freedom of butchering your ennemies with an infinity of items, the repetitiveness of its gameplay mecanics, its un precise collisions and idle camera runs short after a couple of ours.

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy collection reminds us that the series did not shine at its brightest trying to move from action to story-based fiction. The six different games are still okay, but their original mecanics could have been tweaked a little to match the new video game standards.

Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo gathers the two Gundbird and Samurai Aces series into one friendly compilation. The danmaku genre is much more present here than in the previous Alpha version, which is a real plus for fans. Too bad the game still lacks real display and tutorial options once more.

Kunai is a classic yet breathless metroidvania game, which capitalize on its strong action and fun narration. The sympathic Tabby and its variety of expressions is a bless to see, but the art direction suffers from its unflaterring minimalism, and endless boss patterns that grows on frustration.

5 / 10 - 198X
Jan 29, 2020

198X is a true love letter to the old arcade genre : through a retro trip of five different mini games, Hi-Bit's celebration only manages to copy and paste tiny bits of classic ones. Thanks to a clich' narration, 198X does nothing but tell how good the past used to be, and how much the present suck. If you still possess the original, there is not much need to play this wanabee experience.

Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha compiles six good to dispensables shoot'em up on a single Switch cartridge, giving curious players enough content to chains scores and playthrough. But despite some interesting scrolling options, the game lacks the most obvious features it needed to really please every fan of the genre.
