8 / 10.0 - Warlander
Jan 23, 2023

Warlander is a high-quality MOBA with a hack 'n' slash combat system that works well even in the most chaotic online situations. Regardless of the task at hand in battle, there is never a shortage of action, whether you seek for a fight to break through enemy lines or stay in the rear building defen-sive machines. Character growth and equipment provide satisfaction, and even without the Battle Pass, a lot of rewards can be unlocked. I am a bit afraid about the importance of in-game purchases, however, since the upgrades are not all merely cosmetic but directly affect player stats.

Potion Craft: Alchemist Simulator simulates the life of a novice alchemist trying to pave his way to fame and glory discovery after discovery. As in real life, it requires dedication and perseverance, which do not always go hand in hand with casual game philosophy. The system of moving along the alchemical map will entice you to experiment for a few hours in search of the ultimate formula, but an uninspired endgame relying on grinding might turn away even the most ambitious alchemists. If you're looking for an original sandbox puzzler and aren't afraid of repetitive gameplay, it's definite-ly an interesting game.

8.1 / 10.0 - Hell is Others
Dec 14, 2022

Hell is Others is a mix of genres among which survival horror looter shooter stands out, but once you have acquired the right equipment, the Free for All mode also comes into play. Inventory slots reduced to the bone, permanent loss of loot and a rather high difficulty especially at the beginning make us move with circumspection, becoming more and more bold as our character grows. But it is a moment to find yourself back at the beginning, and the feeling of perpetual vulnerability guarantees a constant tension. As in all PvP the future will also be decided by the amount of updates and events entered by the developers, but for the first dozen hours fun is guaranteed.

8.1 / 10.0 - Lords & Villeins
Nov 10, 2022

Lords and Villeins is a city builder which tries a different approach to the genre introducing families and dynasties, and although it does not revolutionize the gameplay, it gives it some spice of originality. Under the hood, however, it's a solid strategy game for players who love meticulous resource management, supported by excellent visuals that will make happy those who want to spend time in the creation of detailed cities and houses. An above average learning curve could lead to no that satisfying results in the first couple of runs, but nothing that will discourage players who love this kind of games.

8 / 10.0 - Ghost Song
Nov 8, 2022

Ghost Song is a love letter to metroidvania genre with a huge map, so big that even the portion that can be immediately visited could almost represent a complete game. The game features an excellent graphic design, albeit with improvable animations, and an interesting story to follow despite starting with a little delay. The soulslike component makes things as hard as expected, and while it might annoy players who don't like repeating the same section again and again, it's part of the game. Definitely recommended for those who love exploration, too bad for the limited support for keyboard / mouse combo.

8.1 / 10.0 - The Chant
Nov 3, 2022

he Chant is a well-made third-person survival horror action adventure, which despite not departing from the formula in which you have to recover a series of objects to unlock a new area and progress in the story, manages to excite thanks above all to the human and fragile nature of the protagonist, involuntarily chosen in a situation bigger than her.

Midnight Fight Express is a brutal beat 'em up whose only goal, despite a story with a weird plot, is to slaughter enemy after enemy. Really enjoyable in the early levels when each new skill learned improves the way you fight, it becomes repetitive when you try to complete the secondary challeng-es, which require players to retry a lof of times the same game sequences. Those seeking for perfect completion of the game, however, will find a tough challenge, as the unlockable techniques are quite a lot and all beautifully animated. To be played at a very loud volume to get even more exalt-ed.

8 / 10.0 - Sunday Gold
Sep 12, 2022

Sunday Gold is a successful mix of a point and click adventure and a turn-based combat game, with a bit of role-playing. Taken individually, these three components would not be that memorable: puzzles can be solved by trial and error, shooting is not very varied, and character builds are quite simple. Combined, however, they represent a successful alchemy capable of transmuting not so precious metals into gold. Flaws become less visible, limitations appear more distant, and one of the most difficult gameplay genres to innovate could find a new youth.

8 / 10.0 - Arcade Paradise
Aug 27, 2022

I had forgotten that feeling of joy mixed with curiosity related to the unexpected arrival of a new cabinet in the arcade. Arcade Paradise made me relive this. I really liked a lot of the video games, while others, despite being quite good, simply weren't my cup of tea. But if you love retro/hyper-casual genre you will surely find at least a dozen of games that you will want to keep on playing, no matter if you already completed their quests. The managerial section, despite being an original part of the game, is the least developed feature; this is a video game for players who love more action and less thinking.

Timothy and the Tower of Mu is a declaration of love for the NES carved in pixels. It's an hard but not frustrating platformer, with lot of contents and secrets to discover. It is unfortunately penalized by an imprecise control system and the lack of configuration options does not help. Players used to jump with precision and timing will ignore these shortcomings, but less experienced players may be put off by the difficulty and be unable to fully enjoy everything Kibou Entertainment created.

Endling - Extinction is Forever is, first of all, a survival adventure for everyone since the difficulty setting is deliberately easy, so everybody will be able to enjoy the game at its fullest. The story is compelling and it deals with a pressing issue, exasperating the drama, but never declining into the banality of the so-called "educational games" thanks to the excellent storytelling. The artistic side is also awesome, and we can say that if extinction is forever, a diamond is forever too, so the game can be considered a small diamond that is worth playing.

8.4 / 10.0 - Hell Pie
Jul 27, 2022

In Hell Pie there was the risk that all efforts made in the creation of a crazy and irreverent storytelling could detract energies and resources from the actual gameplay development. Luckily, devs did not get lost along the way and what we have here is an excellent 3D action platformer, which also entertains us with its demential humor without falling into the trap of being little more than a collection of crass jokes. There are some minor flaws, but nothing major.

8.2 / 10.0 - Keplerth
Jul 4, 2022

Thanks to a constant hint system always suggesting what our next step should be, Keplerth guarantees a casual approach to the usually hardcore survival genre, as long as you select a low difficulty level. Just like in other sandboxes, you decide how to play, choosing whether to run along the main quest or dedicate to hunting, fishing, breeding, farming, expanding and improving our base. By activating permadeath the gameplay gets as tough as the meanest roguelike and it's worth a try.

8.3 / 10.0 - Sonic Origins
Jun 27, 2022

Sonic Collection is not only a (guess what?) collection of the first games featuring the blue hedgehog and friends cleverly remastered and with an improved gameplay, but it's also a long platformer – if we consider the Story mode which will take us by hand through all four chapters – which I would recommend also to those who are unfamiliar with the franchise and are simply looking for a fun and fast paced game with colorful graphics and an awesome level design where there's always something new to discover. Highly recommended both for Sonic lovers and newcomers.

8.6 / 10.0 - Sniper Elite 5
May 25, 2022

Sniper Elite 5 marks the new entry point for tactical shooters, and although it's not a big revolution for this kind of games, thanks to a refined and engaging stealth and sniping approach, as well as the interaction with many elements of the scenario, it offers a fun gameplay in which there isn't a single way to complete missions that require multiple objectives to be fullfilled, all while offering a robust challenge. It's a pity that the game is not especially daring, but it's a fun single player and the online should grant it a lenghty lifespan.

May 24, 2022

Touken Ranbu Warriors has a combat system that would virtually allow you to complete all missions using, in addition to the directional stick, a single button. However, you would lose the soul of the entire musou and its myriad of attacks one more lethal and spectacular than the other, with enormously charismatic characters to watch kidnapped as they dance breaking lives.

7.2 / 10.0 - The Serpent Rogue
May 19, 2022

The Serpent Rogue focuses all the experience on resource gathering and crafting, relegating every other aspect of gameplay to the role of a co-primary.

8.1 / 10.0 - CRIMESIGHT
Apr 26, 2022

Crimesight is a successful mix between Among Us, Cluedo and Hitman Go that while presenting two quite different gameplay depending on the faction with which you play, manages to make them both equally interesting to the point that I do not know if it is more fun to play the role of Sherlock or Moriarty. Exhausted the pleasant initial surprise, however, becomes a victim of its own mechanics not proposing any variety.

8.1 / 10.0 - Revita
Apr 19, 2022

With its unique system of buying perks with hit points, Revita can reward the ones who dare or punish the reckless ones. A twin shooter roguelike in which to experiment in search of the best powerup combos, fast paced and suitable both for those who want to try and try once more for the perfect speed run, and for those looking for a game to play in short sessions, almost in a casual way. Unfortunately, bad luck can be a decisive factor when it comes to success or defeat, since only a handful of the more than two hundred available upgrades are real gamechangers.

7.9 / 10.0 - Hero's Hour
Apr 13, 2022

Hero's Hour mixes RPG, roguelike, real time strategy and auto battler elements in one convincing bundle, portrayed with a nice use of pixel art and an impressive number of units on screen. The gameplay loop, however, tends to be a bit repetitive and the lack of a singleplayer campaign doesn't help. Still worth it for its price, though.
