A murder mystery that is masterfully told to keep your eyes on the screen until the very end. The visuals are lacking when it comes to the environments, but you quickly forget about them when you discover what plot twist is introduced next.

8 / 10.0 - Police Stories
Oct 17, 2019

The story is forgettable because of its generic nature and the visuals aren't incredible, but Police Stories is about the tactical gameplay and having to make those split-second decisions as a police officer would. You'll have a newfound respect for your local law enforcement once you realize how life and death their jobs can be.

Lovely Planet 2: April Skies is – for lack of a better word – lovely. Everything about it is cute, simple and a nice change of pace from all the overly violent games I've been playing recently. It feels great to play and it can get challenging towards the end, but nothing that had me scratching my head or annoyed with difficulty. I loved pastel colours for the visual style and happy inducing music because it puts me in a relaxing place, and for that reason, it's a game I may return to in the future.

7.5 / 10.0 - Creature in the Well
Sep 18, 2019

The entire pinball premise for the gameplay is excellently done, feels great and with it having a learning curve makes it all the more fun to figure out and master.

A very unique game about the evolution of man that isn't afraid to drop you in the world and make you figure out everything for yourself, which may turn some people off immediately.

8.5 / 10.0 - Control

It has the weirdness of Alan Wake/Max Payne in the story, the crazy action-packed combat of Quantum Break all while letting you explore this bizarre, beautiful building with so many secrets to uncover.

8.5 / 10.0 - 198X
Aug 16, 2019

198X feels like it was made specifically for me and my nostalgia. Despite it being very short, I love everything 198X is trying to do and I think it succeeds with excellent results. I can't wait to see what kind of games they will bring in part two.

7.5 / 10.0 - Supermarket Shriek
Aug 7, 2019

One of the weirdest concepts for a videogame I have ever seen, but it somehow works. While the later levels can get infuriatingly challenging compared to the earlier ones, Supermarket Shriek has a great selection of game modes, a hilarious visual style, and excellent level design that had me consistently applauding the developer.
