Disco Elysium - The Final Cut combines different elements in a very engaging RPG. Investigation, existentialism and politics are mixed in an unusual adventure full of simple and elegant mechanics. There is much to see in its elaborate world, which can be explored in different ways. The dense narrative explores remarkable themes through several memorable characters and poignant scenes, in an elaborate and impeccably localized Brazilian Portuguese text. In addition, visuals with impressionist touches, soft music and accurate voice acting set the melancholic mood of the city of Revachol. In the end, these characteristics make Disco Elysium - The Final Cut an exceptional experience.

7 / 10.0 - Say No! More
Apr 9, 2021

Say No! More explores a curious concept in an experience full of humor. It's really fun to say “No!” for the countless absurd requests from coworkers, mainly because of the intense consequences: the word is able to break objects and make people fly through the air. The plot captivates with exaggerated scenes and comical characters, exploring important themes with lightness. The downside is in the game mechanics, which are extremely simple. In the end, Say No! More is a good and brief way to get out and have fun.

7.5 / 10.0 - Genesis Noir
Mar 31, 2021

Genesis Noir is a curious and highly experimental experience. A surreal universe awaits those who immerse themselves in the game's proposal, which uses a mixture of non-interactive scenes and tactile puzzles to tell a complicated love story. Many exaggerated and impressive moments are scattered throughout the adventure, and the striking visuals and the punctual, but powerful, soundtrack intensify the sensations. However, there are problems, such as very basic puzzles, some confusing passages and an obtuse plot. In the end, Genesis Noir is a brief engaging visual show, basically an interactive film.

8 / 10.0 - Narita Boy
Mar 29, 2021

Narita Boy bets on a unique setting and on basic plataform concepts to create a pleasant adventure. The combat is exciting with agile movements and a good variety of situations, especially in the bosses. The highlight is the exotic and elaborate atmosphere inspired by the 1980s: the mythology of the Digital Kingdom is carefully crafted, and the pixel art look enchants with scenarios and scenes full of details complemented by a synthwave soundtrack. The simplicity of elements and the underutilization of mechanics is a little uncomfortable, but the atmosphere is able to compensate for these problems. In the end, Narita Boy is for those who wish to be transported to a different reality.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dandy Ace
Mar 24, 2021

Dandy Ace proves to be a great action roguelike. Its most notable aspect is the flexible spell card system that allows mixing effects in countless ways, explored in combats that require constant readaptation - part of the fun is precisely finding powerful combinations of attacks. A stylish universe with charismatic characters makes the adventure engaging, and there's plenty of content to unlock. However, the limited variety of maps and situations can bring a sense of repetition in the long run. In the end, Dandy Ace is a frantic experience that is worth checking out.

7.5 / 10.0 - Red Ronin
Mar 17, 2021

Red Ronin surprises with its creative puzzles. The main mechanics are simple to understand, but special abilities and a good variety of dangers make the stages complex and interesting. It is stylish and fun to go out and cut everything on the swordsman's shoes, however some points are annoying, such as constant presence of trial and error and peaks of difficulty. In the end, Red Ronin is a good agile puzzle option with good ideas.

8 / 10.0 - Loop Hero
Mar 4, 2021

Loop Hero offers an immersive experience with its unique blend of concepts. It's fun to indirectly influence a hero's journey through a dark world in an adventure that combines RPG, deck building and roguelike. Interactions between cards and different types of enemies create strategic matches, and there are many nuances to learn. The game cycle, which focuses on constantly improving the base with resources, is addictive, but lots of grind, slow pace and the small variety of situations between runs makes things a bit repetitive. Loop Hero is a unique title, it is only important to be willing to face the grind to fully enjoy it.

SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium is a great portable fighting game and easily one of the biggest highlights in the NeoGeo Pocket Color library. The title features elaborate systems (within the limitations of the original console), explored in agile battles full of combos and possibilities. In addition, the game overflows content with many characters, different combat styles and various minigames. The adaptation for Switch is competent and has some useful resources, but the presence of more options would make the experience better. In the ende, SNK vs. Capcom offers a fun retro experience, as well as being an interesting crossover.

The Solitaire Conspiracy uses the espionage theme to modernize the Solitaire game. The addition of special skills brings strategic aspects, resulting in agile and interesting matches. In essence it is a Solitaire variation and sometimes the simplicity stands out, but different modes, such as Campaign Plus, which resembles puzzles, and the frantic Countdown, which also requires quick reflexes, help to bring diversity. In addition to the updated mechanics, it is difficult to not be involved by the atmosphere created with stylish art direction and the use of neon colors. The campaign and its scenes with video performances are very engaging; it's just a shame that the plot is quite predictable. In the end, The Solitaire Conspiracy is a remarkable and addictive experience.
