7 / 10.0 - The Almost Gone
Jul 6, 2020

The Almost Gone takes risks in an area little explored even by other indie developers, allowing the player to experience unique sensations. In short, it is a rich journey through the human subconscious.

Pianista has beautiful visuals and it's vast musical collection makes it an interesting title for lovers of rhythm games and classical music. The controls are the sole problem and it could be much better if it used the touchscreen.

9 / 10.0 - DISTRAINT 2
Aug 1, 2020

Distraint 2 is a simple and efficient adventure game with beautiful graphics and exquisite soundtrack. I venture to say that the title goes even further: it is a journey that teaches us about the importance of overcoming pain and looking for hope in the most difficult moments. Despite being a short title (approximately two hours), it is an observation on having faith, understanding our fears, insecurity and remorse, in addition to analyzing the role of greed and ambition in our life.

In short, Pokémon Café Mix is not bad; on the contrary, it is fun, colorful and with a good presentation. However, it is just a simple aperitif, which can become nauseating if served continuously.

With impeccable gameplay, 23 characters, various game modes, great local multiplayer, several improvements over the original console and a virtually infinite replayability factor, King of Fighters R-2 is highly recommended for fighting fans and a must-have game for enthusiasts of The King of Fighters franchise, not only for its historical value, but for the hours and hours of fun that the port provides.

Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? Infinite Combate had the potential to be better, especially if it was released a few years ago for Nintendo 3DS. It is a title that insults dungeon crawlers and RPGs in general, although it has some good points and is noob friendly. In addition, instead of recommending it, I think it is more advantageous to watch the animation. Trying to find positive points to compesate it's problems disappointed me, just like the animation.

8 / 10.0 - Turmoil
Sep 13, 2020

Turmoil is very agile and fun, with mechanics that are simple and challenging at the same time. Contrasting steps that combine long-term planning and quick decision making, the title is recommended for players who prefer that dose of action during the strategy.

7.5 / 10.0 - Moero Crystal H
Sep 23, 2020

Because it contains visual appeal and highly suggestive content, Moero Crystal H is a title that sells itself through the fanservice and lives up to that, especially in mini-games, but does not give up the RPG genre to prioritize the notorious trope tits and butt (and, of course, underwear). Even though it is colorful and captivating, it is still a niche game, due to the subgenre dungeon crawler that may not please everyone, and aimed at a male target audience. Thus, I am proof that, if well designed and built, the fanservice can both amuse and attract women.

Demonizing and trivializing mental disorders, using 19th century stereotypes and terms, just proves how problematic the Reflection of Mine story is. The highlight of this title, which should be solving the puzzles, ends up buried in an infinite and restrictive loop of trial and error. It may seem challenging at first, but it soon becomes frustrating.

Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut is not just “another one” in the Switch library: it's a game with its own style, charisma and identity that arrives at the hybrid ten years after its original release and relives the magic of one of the best adventures of the half-genie without giving up the charm of the 16-bit era.

The Language of Love lives up to Teilhard de Chardin's famous phrase. With a light and believable narrative that addresses diverse themes present in our daily lives and characters with whom it is possible to identify to a greater or lesser degree, the visual novel is a great option for those who just want an uncompromising and touching reading about the difficulties to create relationships, romantic or not, in adulthood - and, above all, about how they impact people's lives.

Prinny 1 • 2: Exploded and Reloaded is a bit frustrating, but at the same time it offers a good feeling of reward when you finally overcome the hard obstacles. Perhaps hardcore or nostalgic players will appreciate the high difficulty, as it is certainly not a game for beginners. In short, the bundle brings together two niche platformers that will only make sense to anyone who knows Disgaea - or perhaps, who knows, to people who have plenty of patience.

8 / 10.0 - Wildfire
Dec 3, 2020

Wildfire is a very interesting stealth and platform puzzle title. The game requires agility, planning and cunning in the right dose, and its rich mechanics in the use of the elements encourages the player to be creative and try out new solutions, which adds a great factor of replayability. Yes, there are some problems, such as very small graphics and some FPS drops; however, considering also the fun local multiplayer and the wide accessibility options, it is a more than recommended experience.

5.5 / 10.0 - Micetopia
Dec 7, 2020

Rich's adventure in Mycetopia is recommended for all players. With simple and accessible narrative and gameplay, without many flourishes, this timid metroidvania entertains in the right measure, even if it leaves something to be desired. However, it is the typical case of "take it or leave it": just as it attracts those looking for casual experiences, it can turn off enthusiasts of the metroidvania genre.

6 / 10.0 - Tamiku
Dec 11, 2020

Tamiku is the typical game that falls easily into oblivion as soon as the player gets tired of it, having completed it or not. Although the game is almost flawless, the gameplay is too modern to evoke a nostalgia feeling and its high difficulty is more frustrating that encouraging.

8.5 / 10.0 - Touhou Spell Bubble
Dec 13, 2020

Touhou Spell Bubble is an excellent rhythm puzzle that combines two franchises from different genres in a unique way, in addition to having a vast cast of artists and voice actors. Even though it is a niche game and more meaningful only to Touhou fans, the spin-off is full of fun and fantastic replayability that can be extended with the local multiplayer. With music and settings for all tastes, it is an unusual mix that works well - and, of course, it can serve as a gateway to the fantastic universe created by ZUN.

4 / 10.0 - Apparition
Dec 14, 2020

Even with an interesting and promising premise, and immersive graphics, Apparition does not take advantage of the good idea under which the game appears to have been developed. The result is a disastrous execution that suffers from serious game design problems, confusing controls and a bad interface, which make the real horror the game itself.

Fatal Fury: First Contact brings the mechanics and advanced gameplay of Real Bout Fatal Fury 2. The lack of extra characters and features, however, makes this port more recommended for Fatal Fury fans or for Neo Geo Pocket fighting game enthusiasts who want to complete the library on a modern console like the Switch. Despite its few flaws, it is still a great choice to have the experience of Real Bout 2 on the go.

Despite not having the replayability factor, Touhou Luna Nights is a metroidvania that delivers frantic action from start to finish, without leaving aside the original game on which it was based. With a history of its own, there is no need to get to know Touhou in depth to take advantage of this mind-blowing spin-off that can please both experienced and novice players.

How To Take Off Your Mask Remastered is a ok game, but unfortunately it falls short as a visual novel, especially in a narrative extremely poor in content and, above all, incomplete - in the end, we have only a simple and predictable novel entitled to two equally banal endings, which can be achieved with very few hours of gameplay.
