Little Nightmares 2 is more of the same, but it is a deja vu of a very unique and enjoyable experience. Although it does not bring significant innovations and provides a brief experience, the art and design of the game is quite impressive. It is an essential game for anyone who enjoyed the first title, on the other hand, it is not a product that will change the opinion of those who did not like the predecessor.

80 / 100 - Cyber Shadow
Jan 27, 2021

After the tedious early stages and a few upgrades, Cyber ​​Shadow shows its value. The gameplay is much more appealing after the first half of the game. However, it still lacks innovation. Despite those problems, it is easily recommended for those interested in the classic 8-bit era, especially for its great visuals, sound and narrative.

80 / 100 - Amnesia: Rebirth
Nov 5, 2020

The new chapter of Amnesia delivers an intriguing and well-crafted horror story, which promises to please fans of H.P. Lovecraft's supernatural tales. The game inherits many of the features introduced in "The Dark Descent", but does not deliver a remarkable evolution in gameplay. Although the gameplay structure is a little archaic, the experience is recommended for its deep and immersive narrative.

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!
