9.3 / 10.0 - Impostor Factory
Oct 7, 2021

Yet another masterpiece by Kan Gao, probably the most solid and balanced overall. The story of Quincy and Lynri passes through regrets, remorse, fears and IF. Gao's writing is always impeccable and is capable of never falling into the banal, even when it touches themes already abused in the medium and in narration in general. So far my very personal best game of the year.

Hollow Knight is the metroidvania you are looking for: epic, challenging, clever and so wide. Its mechanics borrowed from Souls are perfectly fit in this beautiful product.

9.2 / 10.0 - Spelunky 2
Sep 24, 2020

A beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Spelunky 2 is all a sequel should be: polished, refined, bigger. A game of learning, a game of death, a game of emergent beautiful gameplay. Every second in this game is pure art: it will frustrate you, but in a positive way in which you will shout at the TV and then smile and retry. Just to die again, until you'll learn enough.

9.2 / 10.0 - GRIME
Sep 19, 2021

GRIME is an excellent soulslike metroidvania. Starting from a solid and consistent base layer that takes heavy inspiration from Dark Souls and Hollow Knight, it brings to the table its own ideas and concepts in order to offer an experience with its own rich personality. Inspired bosses, especially in the second half, and an excellent gameplay complete the package. Highly recommended.

9.1 / 10.0 - Finding Paradise
Dec 18, 2017

Finding Paradise is simply a narrative masterpiece that knows how to discuss important topics like the search of happiness. A significant maturity growth in Kan Gao's writing.

9 / 10.0 - Spiritfarer
Aug 18, 2020

Spiritfarer is a game about saying "goodbye" to our friends. Its management mechanics are only a shield, behind which Stella, a ferrymaster, tries to help souls living a serene departure. But their journey is also Stella's journey, full of surprises, emotion and laughs and Spiritfarer is able to turn a death trip in a boat full of life, sounds and people. What is the afterlife? How we are reaching it? Spiritfarer answers with elegance and smartness. A precious gem.

A classic new metroidvania inspired by Hollow Knight. It brings nothing new in the genre, but it makes no errors resulting in a very solid game with well crafted and various mechanics. It will lead you for more than 25 hours through an interesting realm hiding a fine story in it. A gem that simply deserves a place in the Olympus of metroidvanias.

Return of the Obra Dinn is simply gorgeous, from the idea to the execution. Finally a gem in which your deductive skills, your logic and your patience are really important: this game doesn't help the player. With an amazing graphic art and a strong gameplay, another great game from Lucas Pope.

8.7 / 10.0 - Full Metal Furies
Jan 25, 2018

An intense and gorgeous brawler from the creators of Rogue Legacy. Its velocity and variety are the keys to a fresh cooperative game with friends.

8.6 / 10.0 - Manifold Garden
Oct 23, 2019

Manifold Garden its a game about changing: from the changing-gravity mechanic to the high variety of gameplay, the game design defines an interesting first person puzzle game with a lot of exploration in Escher-style. A good game that sometimes just suffers a bit of emptiness due to the lack of narrative aims, but a must-have for all puzzle lovers.

8.6 / 10.0 - Okunoka Madness
Sep 8, 2020

With its perfect controls and its intriguing mechanics, OkunoKA Madness is a love letter to all recent high-precision platforms, like Slip, The End is Nigh and Super Meat Boy. A true hardcore platform, with a lovely speedrunning twist that guides the player in a deep loop of tries and learning. A very good take, despite some too frustrating levels.

A solid extended version of a very good shooter in which you can complete levels manipulating time.

8.4 / 10.0 - Hob
Oct 9, 2017

A pretty good action-adventure, with a fantastic world design. The combat system is a little bit too simple, but the experience is really positive. Recommended.

Another good shot for Capcom, and finally we can play the four Mega Man Zero in their best form: we have the most balanced versions ever, for at least twenty beautiful hours. A love letter to the fans and a good opportunity for the other to know a good part of videogames history. Unfortunately the greatest extra of the collection, the Z Chaser, is not good as it looks like at first and its forbidden controls remapping ruins the experience.

8.4 / 10.0 - Necrobarista
Aug 3, 2020

Despite some technical issues, Necrobarista is a fresh take on visual novels world, and its style captivates the player: interesting direction and gorgeus art manage to create a mix in which the plot can arise with all its delicate topics. How difficult is to "go further" when you're already dead? Necrobarista tries to answer at that, and it's a very good answer.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is a must buy for all fans of the Dragon Ball Universe. It offers an incredible amount of characters, cards and missions in which you will enjoy a good strategy card offensive game. It's nth-power's fan service, but it's good fun service.

8.3 / 10.0 - Shady Part of Me
Dec 11, 2020

In a beautiful mix between 2D e 3D, a little girl and her shadow show us the fragility of the human mind, between fears and anxiety. Along many psychological sessions, the two characters try to cooperate to solve a large number of puzzles based on light, shadows and gravity. A little gem.

A great new take in the roguelite world. Skul: The Hero Slayer is a must-have for all roguelite lovers, with so many balanced builds and combinations. Suffers from an high difficulty spike in the first hours and a not so great level design, but it's surely worth a try.

8 / 10.0 - Into The Breach
Mar 5, 2018

A good roguelite strategic game with focus on tactics and on the rise of the personal ability. Unfortunately there are same balancing problems, but nothing that could ruin the experience.

8 / 10.0 - La-Mulana 2
Aug 13, 2018

La-Mulana 2 is exactly the sequel that all fans waited for. Level design and puzzles are really astonishing, but frustration (a lot) and general confusion make La-Mulana 2 so difficult to play for the majority of players.
