90 / 100 - Spelunky 2
Sep 25, 2020

Although Spelunky 2 recycles much of the formula that made the first game so great, it is a fantastic evolution. This is another "benchmark" for procedural games, which promises to provide countless discoveries and curiosities over the years. It is a product that tests the skill of both beginners and veterans. An essential experience for fans of the genre, whether in solo or cooperative mode.

Odallus: The Dark Call provides a satisfying retro experience comparable to other great nostalgic products, such as Shovel Knight or The Messenger. Although brief, it is very entertaining and another demonstration of Brazil's potential in game development.

80 / 100 - La-Mulana
Mar 17, 2020

With a reasonable price and great content, La Mulana 1 & 2 provides many hours of entertainment. It is a good cost x benefit, as long as the user is aware of the saga he is about to embark on. It is not an easy journey and, for the most part, the game does not provide guidance. It is a well-produced game, but, in the end, it is up to each player to assess how suitable La Mulana is for himself. If the constant obstacles and dead ends exhaust your patience, it is better to look for something else. If persistence and a taste for mystery defines you, it's definitely worth checking out.

94 / 100 - Frostpunk
Oct 11, 2019

Whether it's the setting and mature themes presented or the diverse and complex gameplay mechanics, Frostpunk sets an example on how strategy games should be. The immersion is so deep that it is difficult to realize the lost (but well invested) hours. It is a game that deserves your attention and it's absolutely worth of your time.

Keepers of the Void brings nothing really new to the Darksiders 3 experience, but at least features some great puzzles - an important feature of the series. It is better if enjoyed during the main journey of Darksiders 3, due to the new items and weapons added to the game. Repeatability makes the journey a little boring, but the rewards can justify the player's effort.

Enhancing its predecessor's formula, Builders 2 delivers an even more charismatic, rewarding and fun experience. While there is freedom to play with the possibilities of the game, the complaints are minimal. However, the design of the missions and the game's constant tutorials are annoying, assuming the player needs "crutches" for even the most basic tasks. The imbalance in tutorial implementation will require players' perseverance, but the investment is worth it after all.

A Plague Tale is an interesting new intellectual property. The period of the black death was reimagined with a narrative permeated by mystical elements, while exploring the fraternal relationship between Amicia and Hugo. It is a technically competent game, which conveys a rich and detailed universe, but its potential is barred by a trivial gameplay. Despite the problems, it's recommended and worth playing!

The few imperfections are quickly dismissed in the face of such a majestic gameplay. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sets an important milestone for action games by introducing an innovative and euphoric fighting system, allied to a unique vertical exploration. The journey is not easy, but the catharsis provided by overcoming each obstacle is unparalleled.

88 / 100 - The Messenger
Mar 20, 2019

Just as surprising as the plot twists is the entertainment provided by The Messenger's dialogues. The gameplay is great and represents an evolution of the games that it takes inspiration from, but it's the unforeseen events, in the good sense, that makes this journey fantastic.

75 / 100 - Ghost of a Tale
Mar 14, 2019

It is unfortunate that a game with so many qualities provides a frustrating experience because of technical problems. Despite the limitations, Ghost of a Tale is good and can be much better after a few patches.
