Appealing as Tales of Cosmos may initially be, it remains disappointly flawed and is best left to drift through the aether.

4 / 10 - Kamio Recoil
Jan 11, 2017

Kamio Recoil has, at its core, a solid concept, yet the execution of this concept is deeply flawed. Its clunky mechanics, awkward controls, infuriating enemies serve to stifle any appeal it might have had.

8 / 10 - TattleTail
Jan 16, 2017

While it's by no means perfect, Tattletail goes beyond mere jump-scares and delivers an experience that is genuinely and persistently frightening.

7 / 10 - Nevermind
Jan 23, 2017

If you let it gets its hooks into you, you'll be able to tolerate its flaws. While it won't sate hardcore horror fans, Nevermind is visually and thematically striking enough to be worth a look.

8 / 10 - 99Vidas
Feb 2, 2017

99Vidas' humour can be very hit and miss, and the game's challenging difficulty level may put some people off.  But persist and you'll find it a rewarding and hugely enjoyable brawling experience that will have you coming back for more.

Random but ridiculously repetitive, this deadly dull dungeon hack gives little reason to recommend it.

If you're willing to put in the time to fight your way past its flaws, then you'll get some enjoyment out of How to Survive 2, but there are better zombie shooters and survival games out there.

8 / 10 - A Pixel Story
Feb 22, 2017

A Pixel Story is a hugely fulfilling experience. Its perfectly pitched difficulty ensures that it's challenging but never frustratingly so, and above all, it has that elusive 'just one more go' quality that will keep you hooked.

9 / 10 - BOOR
Mar 7, 2017

BOOR remains an enthralling, charming game that, with its beautifully rendered, challenging levels and innovative central mechanic, will have you hooked from beginning to end.

4 / 10 - DYING: Reborn
Mar 13, 2017

Ultimately, Dying: Reborn is a halfway competent puzzler, but a failure as a horror game.

Ultimately, We Are The Dwarves is jack of all trades, master of none. The game includes strategy, stealth and action elements but none of these mechanics are particularly well implemented.

8 / 10 - NeuroVoider
Mar 30, 2017

Noisy, tough, but ridiculously entertaining, Neurovoider will have you praying for the robot apocalypse.

Chaos Code seeks to carve out its own niche and it may just do that here in the west. It's an entertaining brawler in its own right and its roster of bizarre characters and ludicrous moves are just appealing enough to keep you engaged.

A dull, cynical, money-grabbing mess, Frank Rising deserves to be buried six feet under.

Complex, challenging, but never boring, The Sexy Brutale blends a compelling narrative, appealing aesthetics and innovative gameplay into one stylish package.

Detention is an astonishingly well-put together game that understands how brooding horror is more effective than mere jump-scares.

Standing back and admiring your city, knowing that you were responsible for its virtual prosperity, is immensely satisfying. Niche interest it may be, but if you favour construction over destruction, then Cities: Skylines offers a solid foundation for your future metropolis.

9 / 10 - Prey
May 11, 2017

Prey expertly blends a compelling narrative with open level design, a fear-inducing mechanic and near-unparalleled player freedom to deliver an appealing, atmospheric and aesthetically pleasing chunk of sci-fi that will get sink its spiky teeth into you and never let go.

6 / 10 - Butcher
May 15, 2017

This grim, pixellated gorefest successfully channels the spirit of 8 and 16 bit shoot-'em-ups but doesn't stand up to sustained play; spend too long with Butcher in one sitting and it starts feeling like an infuriating grind.

Easy to play but far harder to master, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2‘s cast of ridiculous characters, improbable moves, heavy rock soundtrack and accessible fight mechanics will keep you engaged and challenged.
