Beginning to end, Bucket Knight took an hour to turn on, beat, and get every achievement. This ended up being a game that required a lot of patience, as the controls, collision, textures, and basically everything else ended up being an absolute mess. I couldn’t help but ask the entire way through the game if there was any quality assurance put into it.
Bite the Bullet doesn’t manage to reach any level of being interesting. It’s a game full of interesting ideas that could have been amazing were they featured on a polished and fun title. Unfortunately, Bite the Bullet is incredibly half-baked. It’s an empty world full of boring and incredibly repetitive enemies and backgrounds. It could have been an interesting twist on roguelike games, but as it stands, it’s simply a shell that needs molding.
It’s hard to recommend for someone not pick up a game, but Hyperspace Delivery Service is definitely one that’s for a very, very niche market. The concept of resource management blending into Doom gameplay is interesting. Unfortunately, the execution just doesn’t work.
As it stands, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Infinite Combate truly immerses you into the anime’s story. Shot by shot, with little to no surprises, you’ll follow the two key characters and their adventures. The real struggle with this game is simply how easy it is, which isn’t always a bad thing if you’re looking to unwind, but sometimes you expect more challenge out of a anime-themed dungeon crawler.
The battle system being the best thing about Death End Re;Quest 2 is good, because it’s the main thing you’ll be doing. On the other hand, with the way this game starts, I was genuinely invested in the story until Mai just became another sulky, edgy, boring anime protagonist. All in all, Death End Re;Quest 2 was a fun game with an interesting and unique set of battle mechanics, but the story, and consequently my enjoyment, fell flat solely due to the poor writing. The lack of difficulty also bored after a while.
There is no real hidden shine to it, what you see is what you get. It’s not bad by any means, but the novelty of fighting crabs wore off fairly quickly, resulting in turning into a slightly janky, slightly frustrating brawler with no real sense of direction. Fight Crab will likely be a fun party game, but only time (and booze) will tell how much fun it will actually be.
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos might not be very impressive, but it’s a decent game at the end of the day, with a couple small bugs that could easily get patched out that may have simply not been noticed. Considering its indie nature and small team, though, it’s still quite alright.
While graphically Wartile might not be much of a looker, the gameplay is where it really matters, and although the game started off a bit tough to navigate, once you’re through that hurdle, it’s quite an enjoyable experience, especially if you are into Dungeons & Dragons or Warhammer.
Minecraft Dungeons does promise that DLC is coming, whether this ends up just being a cash grab to add a couple extra levels is yet to be seen. All we can hope for is that this will give fans of the game a reason to return to the game and give a reason to grind out levels and gear, otherwise, Minecraft Dungeons will surely fall to the wayside.
