9.5 / 10.0 - Hades
Sep 28, 2020

Hades is an action title that manages to combine different aspects in an exceptional and impressive roguelite adventure. Exploring the Underworld in intense combat is exciting, and each run offers a unique experience because of the different rooms and powers. An extensive variety of content makes the cycle of dying and starting over rewarding, and there are many options to customize the game, such as weapons and alternative skills. The narrative extends intelligently through the runs, and the universe is immersive, with stunning visuals, great voice acting and quality music. In the end, Hades is one of those addictive and difficult-to-drop titles - even though I have escaped several times, I'm still playing and getting surprised with the possibilities.

8 / 10.0 - Going Under
Sep 23, 2020

Going Under captivated me with its crazy and eccentric premise. Exploring ruins of failed tech companies in control of an intern is strange and exciting, mainly because you can use almost anything as a weapon. The main concept gives room for experimentation and strategy, and it is necessary to constantly improvise in order to overcome the complicated challenges. The comical tone is present in every corner with humorous dialogues, unusual situations and countless amusing references. On the negative, the adventure proves to be a bit repetitive, even with roguelite aspects, and sometimes chaos gets in the way. In the end, Going Under is an internship worth checking out.

8.5 / 10.0 - Avicii Invector
Sep 16, 2020

AVICII Invector Encore Edition presents a great combination of music and visuals. Controlling a ship to the rhythm of the sound is very engaging and fun because of the presence of good mechanics, interesting sequences of notes and intense challenge. The title revisits the work of AVICII by bringing its great hits and some lesser-known tracks in a great selection of pop-electronic music. Even those who are not a fan of the genre can enjoy the game because of the exciting atmosphere and gameplay. There is solidity in its concept and system, but the absence of extras and options is a letdown. In the end, AVICII Invector Encore Edition celebrates the musician's legacy in a remarkable rhythm game.

8 / 10.0 - Star Renegades
Sep 8, 2020

Star Renegades offers an interesting and visually beautiful RPG and roguelike experience. The turn-based battle is its best feature, due to the presence of the remarkable nuanced timeline manipulation system. In addition, the wide variety of heroes, techniques and equipment offers many options when assembling tactics - mastering resources is essential, as the difficulty is accentuated. As a roguelike, the game falls short with exploration with few events and limited structure, which brings a sense of repetition. Still, it is worth playing Star Renegades to experience its excellent combat.

7 / 10.0 - Witcheye
Sep 4, 2020

Witcheye uses an unusual concept in a creative title. Controlling a witch transformed into a floating eye is intuitive, and there are many interesting moments throughout the journey. Combat, in particular, is highlighted because of the diversity of enemies and situations, which resemble small puzzles. The play sessions are agile because of the short stages and the fast pace, but sometimes the simplicity and problems with the controls are annoying. In the end, Witcheye is a brief, unique and fun experience, even if not very memorable.

8 / 10.0 - UnderMine
Sep 1, 2020

UnderMine applies roguelite concepts in a great game. The cycle of exploring, collecting money, dying, improving the character and trying again is addictive, as each game is unique and there is a constant feeling that we are progressing. The variety of powers that can be obtained along the way, in particular, makes each attempt exciting and unpredictable - part of the fun is just seeing what crazy combination of skills will come next. There is a lot of content to explore, although the need to grind to unlock certain resources makes things a bit repetitive, apart from a few other problems. In the end, UnderMine is a solid, polished action dungeon crawler.

7 / 10.0 - Inmost
Aug 26, 2020

An immersive atmosphere is the biggest highlight of INMOST. Following the plots of the three protagonists is both attractive and disturbing because of the various topics covered and the impacting scenes. A look with few colors, lighting full of contrasts and soft music help to set up the gloomy ambience. Mechanically, the game features a good variety of styles with puzzles, action and platform moments. Unfortunately, there are some problems, such as underdeveloped aspects, unintuitive solutions and constant trial and error, which brings frustration. In the end, INMOST is a brief and interesting experience, albeit with flaws.

Jul 29, 2020

Paper Mario: The Origami King captivates with its beautiful, varied and humorous adventure. The new title of the plumber's paper franchise presents an elaborate world with a great diversity of activities and secrets that invites us to constantly explore it. The battle system, which is nothing more than a combat-looking puzzle, has some interesting ideas, although many limitations make it tiring. However, the battles against bosses are creative and exciting. The biggest highlight of the game is its great sense of humor present in unusual events, charismatic characters and sharp and fun text. Paper Mario: The Origami King may not be the role-playing game that many wanted, but it is still another creative and remarkable adventure.

6.5 / 10.0 - #Funtime
Jul 27, 2020

#Funtime is a good arcade game to enjoy uncompromisingly. In addition to the basic mechanics of moving and shooting, the title has a curious color-changing system that, unfortunately, has little impact (and even gets in the way, in some cases). Even so, there is a good variety of content spread in several mode. Simplicity can make things a bit repetitive over time, but the game is perfect for short and quick matches.

6.5 / 10.0 - Ruiner
Jun 30, 2020

Ruiner is a futuristic adventure with some interesting features, but it fails to stand out. The cyberpunk atmosphere is impeccable with its elaborate world, great art direction and electronic soundtrack. As a game, it features basic and competent shooting mechanics that have been combined with some skills that offer good possibilities and agile confrontations. However, the experience proves to be quite repetitive because of the limited structure of stages, the small variety of enemies and situations, and problems in the difficulty. In the end, Ruiner is a brief but not memorable diversion.
