7.5 / 10.0 - Ikenfell
Oct 15, 2020

Old-fashioned role-playing fans, Harry Potter and other magical school environments fans, and enthusiasts for retro games in general will certainly appreciate Ikenfell. Unfortunately, some points prevent the title from becoming really unmissable or extremely memorable. The biggest problems are the structure of the narrative and the unbalanced challenge of the confrontations, but the overall package appeals to several points, such as its visuals, soundtrack, striking story and unique battle system.

6 / 10.0 - Going Under
Oct 10, 2020

Going Under deviates a little from the path of an ideal roguelike. Instead of enjoying the wonderful visuals, the great soundtrack and the fun premise to make a captivating, agile and action-packed game, the title loses a little focus on what really matters. It is possible to spend some good hours of fun with the game, but the technical problems in the combat, the little variety inside the dungeons (and outside them), the lack of information in some moments, and the excess of exposure in others, made that I never fully get caught up in the adventure.

It is difficult to find a reason why someone who has a Switch does not purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars. There is a certain lack of polish in the visual presentation of the collection, and it doesn't make much sense for Mario 64 not to run at 60 fps in 1080p widescreen in 2020. However, as much as this collection could be better, it currently offers the best way to play these three absolute classics of video game history.

6 / 10.0 - West of Dead
Sep 10, 2020

West of Dead has a great premise and manages to deliver a fun combat that certainly has its layers. As any good roguelike, you must master the mechanics of the game and go through a good number of runs before you can expect any success. However, there is a feeling of lack of polish thanks to some poor game design choices that prevents the experience from being truly memorable.

9 / 10.0 - A Short Hike
Sep 3, 2020

A Short Hike is short and sweet, just like a tiny chocolate bar. You know that each bite will be worth it, but the experience definitely lasts for a short time. Going beyond a "mere" video game, A Short Hike resembles a poem or an interactive work of art at different times, while still managing to be a legitimately fun game in the process.

9 / 10.0 - Spiritfarer
Aug 29, 2020

Spiritfarer is a game about collecting a ton of resources at a frantic pace and exploring a vast map solving quests, but likewise it is also a beautiful bittersweet tale about life and death. The games explore themes like love, affection, goodbyes, pains, insecurities and new beginnings in a way that we don't see much in the world of video games. Best of all, this beautiful story takes place within a legitimately innovative, fun and well-made game. Do not waste time, Spiritfarer is one of the best games of the year for Switch.

7.5 / 10.0 - Nowhere Prophet
Aug 12, 2020

Nowhere Prophet is a large project by a small team that resulted in a different, innovative, intriguing and well-done job. There is no glaring flaw in what the game proposes, but there are undoubtedly points that could be better polished. Additionally, the genre itself, the large amount of text to read and rules to learn, the severe difficulty and the high learning curve make the game a niche game that will go unnoticed by many people. Fans of different card games and / or roguelikes, however, may like it a lot.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ageless
Aug 6, 2020

Ageless is a beautiful tale about empathy and purpose, with an ambience as simple as its message and full of puzzles that can be quite complicated. The game has several positive aspects, and it manages to develop its own identity to create an experience that deserves to be explored. However, there are also several stones in the way: gameplay can be repetitive, tiring and simply flawed and frustrating.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 is brutal, intriguing, nostalgic, fun and frustrating. The experience is unlikely to appeal to everyone, and perhaps it exists only for niche players, like people with an interest in difficult games, old platformers or Castlevania fans. However, there is no doubt that the title fulfills what it promises, honoring its traditions and bringing some valid new things that result in a game well done and that deserves to be played. I'm here hoping that a possible third one will take the formula to even less orthodox places, but for now, Curse of the Moon 2 has a lot to offer - especially if you have a friend to play with.

3 / 10.0 - Radio Squid
Jul 24, 2020

In general, in addition to being somewhat boring and repetitive, Radio Squid is simply not a fun game. Having to deal with your own shots all the time coming straight to your face in every single, tight room is exhausting - you can't even stand and think for a second without being punished by the game. As small positive points, the soundtrack is pretty cool and the Game Boy style look certainly appeals; however, these aspects are far from rescuing an experience as unpleasant as that of this game.
