There is no middle ground for BPM: either you love it, or you hate it. Personally, I feel this game crosses the line between challenge and frustration, offering a learning curve that is almost impossible to climb if you are not a true FPS lover. The soundtrack is excellent and the bundle with it is worth your money, but if you're not a very, very patient person with lightning-fast reflexes and an excellent sense of rhythm, you better look somewhere else.

8.4 / 10.0 - Okunoka Madness
Sep 8, 2020

OkunoKA Madness is an eye-catching, compelling and graphically pleasing platformer, a bigger and more ruthless version of the original game for Nintendo Switch. It is incredibly well suited for the PC as well, as long you're playing on a joypad.

7.6 / 10.0 - Metamorphosis
Aug 22, 2020

The world of Metamorphosis is surprising, imaginative, intriguing and full of color, although a certain poverty of the 3D models and textures betrays the independent nature of the project. All in all, a very interesting twist on Franz Kafka's novel.

A Namco-centric collection of classics, which will be interesting exclusively to ex-Nintendo owners. Not exactly a mandatory buy for the others.

8.1 / 10.0 - Fury Unleashed
May 13, 2020

An awesome, compelling but repetitive rogue-lite shoot 'em up with a lot of enemies to kill, and a comic-style story to discover, game after game.

9.2 / 10.0 - HyperParasite
Apr 3, 2020

Exterminate all humans in this funny, complusive, frenetic rogue-lite classical shooter set in a crazier version of the Eighties.

9.2 / 10.0 - Millie and Molly

Millie and Molly is beautiful because it is an unhurried, addicting but also relaxing game

A great metroidvania game amazingly combining exploration and combat, with frenetic action, original graphics and compelling sounds.

Booknound Brigade, just like the books from which it draws inspiration, can become an excellent travel companion: a challenging metroidvania with clear mechanics, amusing and intelligent in its many ideas.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was fantastic on PlayStation 4, and it remains fantastic even on PC, with the addition of some aspects that were missing in the original edition.

7 / 10.0 - Let's Sing 2020
Oct 31, 2019

Let's Sing 2020 has a good selection of songs, a series of fun challenges and good evaluation skills. However, the game has crashed repeatedly and its music videos seem to come from a VHS.

9.2 / 10.0 - Remote Life
Oct 22, 2019

A challenging, graphically flawless game that seems like a miracle. Three years of hard work of a single person that cost only 18 euros. A masterpiece that we hope will serve Mario Malagrino among the next big names of Industry.

9.1 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 17, 2019

It makes no sense to focus on small flaws: Borderlands 3 is a great game, with charisma and great replayability, with four characters to look into, lots of sub-quests to deal with and a future DLC that could shine to the full.

8.5 / 10.0 - Children of Morta
Sep 4, 2019

Behind Children of Morta's pixel art, lies an excellent hack'n'slash which has little to envy to the pillars of the genre. The RPG aspect is well defined, and the growth of the characters is never trivial.

8.2 / 10.0 - Blazing Chrome
Jul 13, 2019

Blazing Chrome is the coin op you didn't play in the arcade, the cartridge that never came out for Neo Geo, the game you didn't know you missed so much. A game with spasmodic, sadistic and punitive action, just as we liked in the 90s.

Jun 7, 2019

Tales of the Neon Sea makes the cyberpunk arguments of Blade Runner its own, embedding them in a valuable work in pixel art, and managing to give us back some of that sound old 1980s science fiction that, for one reason or another, continues to fascinate us. The gameplay, however, is plagued by repetitive mechanics and some puzzles suffer from a bad translation from Chinese into English.

6.4 / 10.0 - Conan Unconquered
Jun 6, 2019

To appreciate Conan Unconquered it is necessary to close both eyes on its limits and bear the bizarre design choices, but if it is true that perseverance pays, it is also true that one can get tired much earlier.

7.6 / 10.0 - Pathologic 2
May 30, 2019

The gameplay of Pathologic 2 is very barebones in favor of a story pretty difficult to understand. It's a very complex game, barely passable on the technical front, but with a great atmosphere.

6.4 / 10.0 - Fight of Gods
Apr 22, 2019

A cheap fighting game, a little rough on the edges, but quite varied, challenging and fun, good to have a few laughs at fair price.

7 / 10.0 - Bannermen
Apr 20, 2019

Bannermen is the ideal choice for those in search for a pretty straightforward RTS, even if the game might seem a bit vintage in its gameplay and technical aspects.
