9.5 / 10.0 - Othercide
Aug 26, 2020

It is clear that the Lightbulb Crew team went out of their way to present a universe rich in its shades of grey, full of crazy creatures, a curious and volatile villain, as well as stylish heroines, full of impressive skills. Everything gets even deeper thanks to an original soundtrack of great quality that knows how to set the tones of drama, suspense and action at the right times. If you like strategy games and a good challenge, here is one of the big surprises of 2020 and, in my opinion, one of the best titles of its kind ever.

9 Monkeys of Shaolin does much more than just join the vast list of beat ‘em ups: it is among the best of its kind. Sobaka Studio not only inserted all the elements that I consider essential, but also knew how to go further, adding aspects that differentiate it from the majority and that work very well with the frantic and exciting style of these games. The character's evolution structure prolongs the title's longevity for those who like grinding without making it mandatory for players who despise this mechanic.

Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues proves to be an excellent option for those who enjoy the good old beat ‘em up genre. Up to two players locally will have an extensive campaign ahead, a well-designed character progression system, and a fun and fluid combat mechanic. Those who liked Cobra Kai will find a series of references to the universe of Karate Kid. The title also features the voice of some of the original cast, such as Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Jacob Bertrand, among others, increasing immersion and fan service for the public.

8.5 / 10.0 - Mortal Shell
Aug 28, 2020

Mortal Shell is another pleasant surprise that surprised me with its inspiration in the Souls series, but presenting its own identity in both the gameplay and the plot. It may not be as challenging as its inspiring source, but it has not lessened my interest in the game. This is an excellent gateway for those who wish to experience the soulslike genre.

The idea of controlling the furious werewolves and all their destructive potential in video games has always seemed very cool to me, although it has never been properly explored. Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood manages to convey that feeling very well, making each encounter a brutally fun moment. Even with the negative points raised, I consider Cahal's journey an excellent choice for those looking for a good hack and slash action game and an unmissable adventure for fans of the genre.

8 / 10.0 - Unto the End
Dec 18, 2020

Unto the End is very successful in placing the player in its atmosphere. The movement, the protagonist's breathing , the mysterious scenarios untouched by the man convey the feeling of struggling to survive in a strange place. It is undoubtedly one of the most difficult titles I've ever had the opportunity to play, where the simplest of creatures represents a potential danger.

Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield easily joins my list of indies that are worth trying out. The constant use of the soundtrack to give an immersive rhythm to the experience is something that is constantly explored in the games industry, however, there are few cases that manage to stand out like this. Its basic gameplay gives accessibility to different audiences while allowing for a considerable level of challenge. Its only counterpoints are the short campaign duration and the lack of a cooperative mode that could take advantage of the dynamic camera transition feature.

7.5 / 10.0 - For Sparta
Mar 23, 2021

Playing For Sparta automatically reminded me of those endless minigames that we played as kids that increased the difficulty as we progressed. This formula still works well these days and this game brings a high level of difficulty as we survive the days. Combinations of opponents become increasingly challenging, requiring skill from the player and a bit of luck finding good improvements. Eventually, you will be more than familiar with all types of opponents, and the only the goal becomes achieving the highest score possible. This can diminish interest in the title, but without invalidating its potential.

Nanotale – Typing Chronicles manages to transform the simple act of typing into something challenging and fun. The game has an impressive the number of words, which can undoubtedly help to increase our vocabulary. Rosalind's adventure sticks to the old recipe of the hero predestined to solve the world's problems, but it is carried out in a charming way. Taking into account the small bugs, those who enjoy adventure and RPG in real time will find in this title a gameplay with a reasonable plot, but which surprises by the gameplay totally out of the curve.

7.5 / 10.0 - Outriders
Apr 16, 2021

Outriders tend to suffer at some points, as well as other cases of games that have mirrored established franchises. The game manages to be successful in taking references and using them to follow its own path. Its frantic gameplay, the protagonist's distinctive charisma, the absence of microtransactions and a robust and complete story, unlike other games that tend to divide the content, help to balance these points, making the experience promising and attractive for veterans and beginners who seek a friendly gateway to the genre.
