7 / 10.0 - Phantom Abyss
Feb 5, 2024

In Phantom Abyss, the search for relics in mysterious ruins offers a captivating experience, but not without challenges. The intriguing gameplay and asynchronous multiplayer add interesting layers to the narrative, even if it is quite simple and not very standout, while progression through the Abyss and Adventure modes provides a welcome variety that can please different player profiles. However, some limitations, such as layout reproduction, steep difficulty curve, and unobtrusive soundtrack, may impact player complexity. Quirky iconography, while it contributes to a unique atmosphere, can require an additional learning curve. A contained but still interesting adventure.

Loot River, with its unique approach, offers an attractive concept, especially for challenge and puzzle enthusiasts. However, issues related to combat and the game's price on PlayStation consoles may be factors to consider when deciding to try this labyrinthine journey on Sony consoles.

8.5 / 10.0 - Backpack Hero
Dec 8, 2023

Backpack Hero immerses players in a nostalgic experience, with its pixelated aesthetic and soundtrack that evokes the days of classic consoles. The simple gameplay hides an intriguing complexity in the inventory organization mechanics, making each choice crucial to success in the dungeons. However, some details, such as the frequent need to consult the glossary and the lack of a more robust progress tracking system, can make the experience a little stiff, but without compromising our enjoyment of the game.

Oct 17, 2023

Bilkins' Folly is a charismatic adventure that stirs our exploratory side through a world that exudes sympathy, nudging our curiosity at all times, inviting us to accompany young Percy in his search for his loved ones. However, the player who is not willing to commit to what this world has to offer runs the risk of becoming frustrated with an honest experience about dedication and cunning.

7 / 10.0 - Pizza Possum
Oct 5, 2023

Pizza Possum offers a casual and very fun experience, but the increasing difficulty and unbalanced progress can make the game challenging, especially due to the task of collecting crowns with no safety margin when captured. Co-op mode adds a welcome layer of fun, but the fact that it is local only makes this option somewhat limited and underutilized.

Bud Spencer & Terence Hill - Slaps and Beans 2's main merits are its notable presentation, including cinematographic elements, nostalgic soundtrack, high quality pixel art, and sound effects that faithfully capture the comic sounds of the movies starred by Bud and Terence. The title is strong on its nostalgic appeal to the fans of the duo's movies thanks to a careful recreation of the spirit of the movies. However, basic elements tied to its gameplay may leave a lot to be desired for some players, especially enthusiasts of the genre, meaning the general experience may vary depending on the person's preferences.

The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo stands out notably due to its engaging art direction and captivating soundtrack. The experience is comparable to watching a masterpiece from the golden age of animation on film or television. However, as a game, it presents itself as a good choice to introduce the point and click genre to a generation that did not experience the golden age of gaming in the 1990s. Despite this, it is important to mention that the game may not provide content enough to impress us or mark our experience.

D&D Lords of Waterdeep is highly recommended for modern board game enthusiasts who don't have access to the physical format, either due to financial constraints or lack of adventure partners. With a remarkable value for money, especially in the PC edition, this version offers a high degree of authenticity compared to its physical counterpart. This occurs due to the faithful reproduction of all the dynamics and rules present in the original game, in addition to the visual fidelity fully reproduced and even improved in the digital environment.
