Batbarian: Testament of the Primordials is what I might call shallow metroidvania. It doesn't take advantage of everything the genre has to offer, but presents enough to have what a game needs: fun and challenge. It would hardly be on my best-of-the-genre list, but the humor and the soundtrack will have a place in my memory and may prompt me to play it one more time.

What started out as an unpretentious weekend gamble in yet another free game turned out to be a great recommendation for anyone looking for challenge, competitiveness and excellent value for money for a genre that often ends up being more of the same. If you don't believe me, I dare you to play Splitgate right now.

8.5 / 10.0 - Eagle Island Twist
Jul 6, 2021

Eagle Island Twist is a good example of the famous saying "don't judge a book by its cover". Despite appearing to be a cute and simple game at first glance, it is quite challenging and well done both technically and artistically. The pixel art direction demonstrates impressive details, such as the lighting effects on underground scenes and the reflection of some translucent platforms. The title is a treat for fans of platformers.

With several improvements and options to make it more accessible — less difficult should be more suitable — or more challenging, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is the best version of a videogame classic. With a presentation that brings excellent art and music, in addition to elements that greatly enhance the gameplay, the high difficulty still makes the game be targeted to a more specific niche. Still recommended, but to be enjoyed in moderation.

Enhancing many aspects of its predecessor, Subnautica: Below Zero is a formidable survival experience with the well-known layers of sensation that made Unknown Worlds Entertainment's previous title relevant in this challenging genre. A mandatory choice for those who enjoy adventure, mystery, tension and challenge.

7.5 / 10.0 - BIOMUTANT
May 24, 2021

Biomutant is a fun and rewarding experience for those who like to explore worlds in search of items while getting involved in a good adventure story. Of its main highlights, the exploration is excellent, and the combat has its problems that can be overcome with extra dedication and possible future updates. The game is an invitation to adventure that is worth accepting, despite a questionable performance on current consoles and other details of a more technical nature.

7 / 10.0 - Death Crown
May 19, 2021

Death Crown does not innovate in the visual department and that is not a negative point. The retro "1-bit" art gives this experience a unique charm that uses the fundamentals of real-time strategy very well while challenging the player in slightly elaborate and fierce matches.

Resident Evil Village is a reference to the horror genre and an important milestone for the series in its 25th anniversary celebrations. Capcom first-person gameplay remains a wise decision, bringing gameplay and storytelling together in an excellent way. The main inspiration is the older brother, Resident Evil 4, with mechanics, characters and quality that make Village a kind of spiritual successor to one of the most revered games in the franchise. A must-have title for Resident Evil fans.

7 / 10.0 - Battle Axe
Apr 30, 2021

Battle Axe manages to communicate with the language of a nostalgic era in which video games were simple and uncompromising, with a cliché adventure that already does more than enough to provide electronic entertainment. Its presentation in pixel art, sounds and music easily transport us to a time when our only goal was just to end the game with an invitation to play all over again. It lives up to the term 'Nostalgic'.

8 / 10.0 - Astro Aqua Kitty
Apr 27, 2021

Astro Aqua Kitty is an apparently unpretentious title that won me over for its quality and addictive gameplay. At one point, I didn't even care about the story anymore, focusing my attention on exploring every corner of the different stages of the game just to make my submarine more and more perfect. A different and engaging shoot ‘em up.
