Olija is, simply put, a great 2D action-adventure game. Developers Thomas Olsson and Skeleton Crew Studio knew exactly what they set out to deliver. This is a focused, refined adventure that'll captivate you for a short while and provide you with a bite-sized albeit worthwhile journey.
Super Meat Boy Forever is a fun little distraction. Though it fails to live up to the legacy of its predecessor, it's entertaining for a few playthroughs. If you loved Super Meat Boy, you might just get a kick out of Forever… or you may not.
Ghostrunner is an all-around great action game. The first-person parkour mechanics will make you feel like a badass, as will chopping up bad guys. The game doesn't always control perfectly, but everything still comes together to create an awesome, action-packed cyberpunk experience.
Orangeblood offers a unique spin on the offbeat RPG formula that was popularized by EarthBound. This is very much a quirky turn-based game, but its foul language, hip hop music, '90s-inspired tone, and adult themes make it a weird, enjoyable curveball. Performance is stunted slightly compared to the PC version, but the game is still a good time.
Cloudpunk succeeds in delivering a worthwhile open-world adventure. The story isn't perfect, but the characters are extremely well-written. The audiovisual design also drives the game forward, presenting a world that's dark, futuristic, and mysterious. You might struggle with the camera and controls at times, but don't let that detract from what is an otherwise awesome character-driven game.
9 Monkeys of Shaolin is the type of game you pick up and play over the course of a weekend or after a long day at work. The martial arts movie style works well and wears its grindhouse love on its sleeve. Combat is entertaining and challenging, and like a proper beat 'em up, you can have a friend join you for the ride. It's over after about five hours, but in that time you're treated to a really good time.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is the best WWE game in a long time. Its over-the-top combat leans heavily on cartoon violence, so if you're looking for a wrestling sim, you won't find that here. What you will get, though, is a fun, fast-paced, and lighthearted wrestling game.
