We recommend Donut County to anyone looking for a short, yet enjoyable game to play for a few hours. Since the mechanics are easy to pick up and the themes of the game can be easily understood, we believe this is a great game for all ages and is even one to enjoy with kids on the weekend.
Penny is a over-the-top goth wannabee that gets a little too zealous about Halloween and is fired from her funeral home job. She then goes to hang out with her boyfriend in a cemetery before falling through a crypt, bashing her body on a rock, and dies - thereby meeting Death himself. Badly in need of a vacation, Death mistakes Penny for his replacement and she becomes the harbinger of doom, helping dead folks get settled into their newfound lives.
We highly encourage anyone who is currently a VR user to pick up Pixel Ripped 1989 as soon as possible. It’s a solid experience and did something that few other virtual reality games have ever done to me – make me forget I’m in virtual reality. The gameplay is fun (even if a bit more difficult than you’d expect at times) and the concept is great. It’s a tad longer than most other VR games out there, and comes in at a very reasonable price.
Overall, Wizard of Legend is a solid purchase and we recommend it heartily. It’s fun, fast, and challenging all while having a wonderful soundtrack and (even if not unique) fantastic art style sure to please anyone looking for a retro-inspired game with fantastically tight controls.
Masters of Anima scratches the itch you may have for a Pikmin-style real time strategy game over and over again. Its unique art style and engaging characters are exactly what you want, but the gameplay leaves a little to be desired. If you are a fan of Pikmin or RTS games in general, we would recommend you pick it up!
The Adventure Pals is heavily influenced in both art style and humor by Adventure Time, and fans of the series will have no problem getting used to the slightly different aesthetic. Fortunately, it’s also a win for those who are not familiar with the series as its cute animations and repulsive dad jokes will leave you feeling solidly at home.
