Super Cane Magic Zero is fun. It is bright, bold, mostly an engaging attempt at doing something different. If you like the oddball work of Sio then you’ll love this. Do bear in mind that most of the game is hand crafted so there is not a ton of replay value in it.

If you are a fan of mechs, and want to blast off into combat then Project Nimbus: Complete Edition has some great mech combat. It feels like a cross between Gundam and Ace Combat and shooting up the skies in a battle frame is incredibly satisfying.

7.5 / 10.0 - TwinCop
May 16, 2019

Twin cop is ludicrous, irreverent, and utterly infuriating. It is easily the most fun I’ve had after a pontoon accident.

7.5 / 10.0 - Duck Game

The simple control system makes Duck Game instantly accessible for almost all players and makes challenging your nearest and dearest a simple pick up and play experience. The odd aesthetic, menagerie of weapons, and charming soundtrack all add to Duck Game's attraction. If you are looking for a fun party game Duck Game fits the bill! Duck Game is out now on Nintendo Switch. You can find out more about it at the official Duck Game Website.

7 / 10.0 - Weedcraft Inc
Apr 25, 2019

Weedcraft is unlike any strategy game I’ve had the pleasure to play. It definitely gets a high score despite the mediocre soundtrack and farming mechanics that can prove tiresome in the long run.

With a deceptively linear quest and extremely accessible challenges, it is unsurprising that Hob: Definitive Edition, like RiME, is not the most cerebral challenge. It is, instead, a gorgeous journey that dutifully sweeps you away into another world.

Silence is a smart, inventive fairy tale that draws from the classics and tackles some weighty subject matter.

9.5 / 10.0 - APE OUT
Mar 20, 2019

I adore Ape Out. Visually it seems very uncomplicated, but step into the shoes of this gorilla and you will find that its simplicity belies a very considered approach to game design.

Despite an obvious need to mix things up and curate a more vibrant online audience, Sword and Soldiers 2: Shwarmageddon has plenty that is good about it.

7.5 / 10.0 - Degrees of Separation
Feb 21, 2019

It’s a cute indie quest that takes you on a beautiful journey. It won’t change your world but I can’t help but recommend that you share Rime and Ember’s.

4 / 10.0 - Clock Simulator
Jan 30, 2019

Clock simulator really is a cluster of mini-games that set players against the clock. This is an interesting idea that doesn't quite go far enough meaning that the bell tolls far too quickly for this unusual indie game.

At Sundown Shots in the Dark is fundamentally a good game. It has a quirky retro graphics, some intelligent design and I'd happily give it another try on the PC.

At its heart, Nairi: Tower of Shirin is a magical adventure. It contains quite serviceable puzzles and a solid set of character dialogue that should hold your attention for most of the narrative.

Octahedron is definitely worth your time. It is simple yet challenging and I imagine that, just like Just Shapes & Beats, this will be in my long term rotation as I slowly edge towards that final neon cube in the sky.

7 / 10.0 - Coffee Crisis
Jan 8, 2019

Coffee Crisis is a fun throwback to the retro era. It takes a few new ideas, an interesting theme and simply has fun with things. If you are looking for a modern fighter with a variety of ideas you might want to look elsewhere. If you love metal and having fun just bashing face, then coffee crisis brews up a storm.

Override: Mech City Brawl is definitely one for the fans. The more I play this brawler, the more I realize that it apes Saturday morning Super Sentai and late night Kaiju shows. Little touches like the cardboard architecture, silly weapons, and satisfying reward scheme make for a game that I have not been able to put down since launch. Override: Mech City Brawl is a unique mix of colorful chrome plated mayhem and explosive combat that will blow you away.

9 / 10.0 - Abzu
Dec 6, 2018

I would love to talk through the game in more specific detail but that would ruin an incredible story with real depth. Abzu is a brilliant experience and available;e on the Nintendo eShop. Take the plunge and check it out on Nintendo Switch now.

In order to piece together their ship and reassemble any hopes of getting home, you and your friends need to run, jump, and switch through a plethora of crazy levels in this couch coop.

6.5 / 10.0 - Gal Metal
Jun 13, 2018

A group of high school students, an alien attack, and Metal. Gal Metal is a unique rhythm based game that mixes metal with a free form playstyle, from DMM Games. Nothing could quite have prepared us for this as we defend earth from certain doom.
