Unscored - Gotham Knights
Oct 20, 2022

Gotham Knights has the tiniest shreds of goodness, perhaps tapping into the primal urge within all of us to make the numbers go up. I just don't want to play it again, which says it all for a game that's designed to worm into your brain and keep you coming back for more of its bazillion currencies.

Unscored - Escape Academy
Jul 13, 2022

Despite its empty halls and predictable plot, it's a charming escape room sim that's filled with clever puzzles that reward and rarely frustrate. The entire thing can be played with a bud too, making this a brilliant co-op jaunt.

Unscored - V Rising
Jun 9, 2022

A streamlined survival game that iterates rather than innovates, but still stakes its claim as a good time solo and a great time with friends in tow.

A side-scrolling roguelite with a penchant for randomness that leads more to messy frustrations than the Lovecraftian legends it wants to produce.

Unscored - Nightmare Reaper
May 9, 2022

A reto-styled FPS with a dash of rogue-lite that's a swell time, even if it doesn't commit hard enough to the rogue-lite loop.

Unscored - Trek to Yomi
May 5, 2022

A samurai side-scroller with striking visuals and a compelling story of revenge, let down a little by enemies that get very samey, very quickly.

A perfectly paced retro-inspired FPS which'll have you wishing every future video game protagonist is outfitted with a chainsaw for a leg.

Unscored - B.I.O.T.A
Apr 12, 2022

BIOTA is an 8bit metroidvania that's hardly groundbreaking, but that makes for a fun - sometimes great - time for fans of platforming and backtracking.

A Star Wars compilation that's undeniably fun, but wildly inconsistent and with far too much padding from collectibles.
