Mighty Fight Federation is a game that, despite its many criticalities, could be fun and rewarding if lived with a casual spirit, without too many pretensions. The problem is that in a videogame market like the current one you have to stand out from the crowd so as not to be terribly overwhelmed, and unfortunately the game in question lacks that necessary charisma. An enjoyable game but of which very little remains imprinted in the hearts of the players who approach it, demonstrating that riding the success of a genre doesn’t ensure the success of your product if you’re unable to have a hold on the public thanks to your game’s appeal.

7.6 / 10.0 - Everhood
Mar 4, 2021

Everhood struck me in the heart, arousing my deepest curiosity already after the first hour, in which I realized that within it there was a much deeper philosophical reflection than one might think looking at it in a superficial way. It has rarely happened to me to face an indie title so well crafted and full of possibilities even in its simplistic realization. But despite all this, it may not be able to conquer everyone, precisely because of this strangeness that may not be appreciated and understood by many. Everhood absolutely doesn’t claim to have the best storyline of the decade, but its purpose must be carefully sought in all the details wisely placed by the Foreign Gnomes inside it, and only in this way the player will be able to access the real ending. A videogame experience that I highly recommend because of what it left me and absolutely replayable to discover the various narrative possibilities it offers.

6.8 / 10.0 - Hellpoint
Mar 1, 2021

Hellpoint has interesting and original ideas while showing a decidedly (perhaps too much) strong inspiration to all its predecessors, but which, due to a too rough workmanship, is often not very pleasant to play. In this regard, in particular, I report the problem of totally wrong hitboxes which, added to the aforementioned absolutely not indifferent technical problems, often lead the player to frustration. The porting on the Switch could have been a way to remedy this, but the persistence of the problems is certainly not the best way to inaugurate it.

Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness is a fantastic title, able to fully experience the horror of the lovecraftian novel by the same name to anyone who approaches it: in fact, all the topical and typical elements of the father of the occult can be found in it, outlining an intricate narrative sequence, mysterious at the right point and full of well-characterized characters. Once again the graphic adventure proves to be the best videogame genre for Lovecraftian works of inspiration and / or transposition, as they are mainly focused on investigation. In short, a game that harks back to the glories of the past, managing to characterize itself and impress its mark, demonstrating the true strength of the Italian videogames industry.

6.9 / 10.0 - Yaga
Feb 10, 2021

Yaga is a real videogame fairy tale, which is evident not only from the narrative premises, but also from the way in which the game unfolds in its various aspects. The graphic rendering evidently recalls the books that accompanied our childhood, just like the narrative tenor of the amusing and rhyming dialogues. Fairy tale in which the player will outline the main character aspects of his blacksmith; all these elements make the game in question worthy of the attention of any player.

Feb 9, 2021

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is undoubtedly a particular game, which clearly is not suitable for all palates, not even for those who are familiar with graphic adventures or RPGs. If caught from the right perspective, it manages to fully capture the player in that fantastic glimpse of Shawn's student life, more precisely in that journey of personal growth to discover a great mystery that has enveloped his life for years now. Faced with a more detached spirit, it will simply be a teen drama game with a rather tedious pace. It is precisely because of this ambivalent nature that I cannot go too far in the final evaluation of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption; even with numerous graphic adventures in my repertoire, this title didn’t manage to involve me as I hoped thanks to the premises offered. A slightly wasted opportunity which, however, finds luck in its porting to the Switch, in particular thanks to the possibility of interfacing with it using the touch screen, which greatly simplifies things within a graphic adventure transposed to the console.

6.1 / 10.0 - All Walls Must Fall
Jan 20, 2021

All Walls Must Fall starts with a bang, in all possible senses, and then gets stuck in the banal dictated by the repetitiveness of the patterns both in terms of gameplay and graphic sector, going to run out in a very short time and not being too replayable despite the possibility of having “always different” campaigns; unfortunately these differences are so barely perceptible as to give an aura of monotony to the whole game, leaving in the mouth the taste of a good opportunity that has been wasted. The porting to Switch, although it has the not indifferent charm of portability, is not very user friendly, since All Walls Must Fall has a decidedly more PC-oriented system, in which management is decidedly simpler and less difficult.

For how Override 2: Super Mech League was conceived, it should have been a fairly long-lived multiplayer title, a goal that already falters in its first week and not a little. The almost total absence of variety, of an object and, worse still, of fun (since most of the time you are against slightly incapable bots) make it a wasted opportunity, even for those like me who appreciate unconditionally all about mecha. I don't know how much margin for improvement this project can have, but I have some hope in that.

7.9 / 10.0 - Per Aspera
Dec 8, 2020

For Aspera it is a complete management game from all points of view, managing to offer rich and articulated dynamics that the game itself struggles to keep up with towards the mid-game. Despite this, the challenge offered by the title is decidedly durable, compelling and satisfying, a must for all those who are passionate about this genre, especially if sensitive to the gloomy charm of space.

6.9 / 10.0 - Startup Panic
Dec 7, 2020

Startup Panic is a complete management game from all points of view, managing to be very casual and consequently to attract casual players to itself. Although its replicability is not very high, it gives many hours of fun especially in the dead times to be filled in a carefree way.
