8.5 / 10.0 - BIOMUTANT
May 24, 2021

Throughout the game characters remind us that it’s alright to remember the past but the past is just that, the past. We need to focus on the future while using the past as a guide. The team at Experiment 101 have done just that with Biomutant. They created a game that uses elements from games that we’ve loved in the past, while simultaneously moving these elements forward and blending them together to show us that video games can be so much more than we ever imagined they could be.

There’s very little indication that Journey to the Savage Planet wasn’t made by a AAA studio. The quality and time put into each part of the world are superb. By the end the gameplay loop gets a bit stale and the magic wears off, but wow… the first few hours are riveting.

7.5 / 10.0 - Felix the Reaper
Oct 14, 2019

The personality of this world and its characters are outright endearing. However, the lack of any real narrative is a large oversight in my book. However, those looking for fun and, at times, difficult puzzles are guaranteed to enjoy what is present. With the added benefit of accessibility features and hardcore challenge modes, those who tout gameplay as king will find themselves at home within Felix The Reaper.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ion Fury
Aug 14, 2019

Ion Fury is remarkably smooth, much like you would expect from a traditional Build game, or nearly any first-person shooter from the mid-90s.

9 / 10.0 - Gato Roboto
May 30, 2019

Gato Roboto is an absolutely great game. That doesn’t mean it’s without flaws, but the few that are present are easily overshadowed by the brilliant pixel art, often refreshing humor, and fun gameplay. Even stages that are often the downfall of a Metroidvania such as a water level or chase sequence are done incredibly well.
