Friday the 13th takes its eighties theme a little too literally, ending up just like other movie-licensed games of the era — becoming an awful, sluggish disappointment. Despite the game's promising premise, Friday the 13th fails to keep its head above water. Avoid this game.

4.2 / 10.0 - MilitAnt
Aug 10, 2016

MilitAnt is an exercise in "what-if"; there's a lot of potential for a great platformer, but it's mired by shoddy gameplay systems and poor design. We're hoping to see a sequel that corrects these mistakes, but this one is quite the disappointment.

An interesting concept unfortunately marred by incredibly frustrating design choices, poor mechanics and directionless level design. Not recommended except for hardcore platformer aficionados who enjoy being masochistic.

Gorgeous visuals and shiny new loot fail to make up for a short, underwhelming story which completely fails to take advantage of a potentially amazing Infinite Forest. Light on both content and innovation, Curse of Osiris is a disappointing first expansion.

6.2 / 10.0 - Bannermen
Feb 27, 2019

While Bannermen proves that it understands and can execute the basics of the modern RTS title, it fails to bring anything new to the table, feeling more akin to a game mod than a fully fledged original title.

6.2 / 10.0 - Neofeud
Oct 2, 2017

For a patient gamer willing to look past flat voice acting, awkward controls and a slow first act, Neofeud presents an enjoyable dystopian adventure with great concept and solid soundtrack. Look up some gameplay footage to gauge whether this one'll be right for you.

Unapologetically simplistic and fanservice embracing, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy plants itself firmly in the more casual corner of fighting games. Those who enjoy button mashing with friends, and find more technical fighters like BlazBlue or Tekken frustrating, may find this more comfortable.

With a little more time and polish, Seven: The Days Long Gone could be a great game. As it stands, the experience is hugely frustrating with its difficulty spikes and bugs, denying the great potential that a stealth RPG could be.

6.8 / 10.0 - Pankapu
Sep 19, 2017

If you can look past the uneven difficulty curves, Pankapu is a relatively enjoyable platformer with fun class-switching mechanics, especially if looking for one for a younger (8-15) audience.

6.8 / 10.0 - Featherpunk Prime
Aug 31, 2016

Featherpunk Prime is a tough, visually saturated twin-stick shooter that takes the essence of games like Contra and Metroid, imbuing them with retrofuturistic neon color and procedurally generated levels. Fans of games like Metal Slug or Super Time Force should find a comfortable new home here.
