8 / 10.0 - Shady Part of Me
Dec 24, 2020

Shady Part of Me abuses of black and white to create a powerful psychological journey filled with melancholy. Even though its main narrative sounds vague and confusing, the smart puzzles and the appropriate gameplay dynamics are enough to portray themes such as depression and anxiety in a concise and conscious way.

Space Invaders Forever is a questionable collection and difficult to recommend, so it would be much more attractive to see all of its content in a more robust and complete compilation. Although the gameplay, soundtrack and visuals of the included titles are, most of the time, satisfactory, there is a deficiency of novelties and additions of new game modes that bring the collection closer to a port than to a reimagination. Overall, it is fun, playable and should appeal to all fans of the Space Invaders series, even if it is somewhat superficial.

8 / 10.0 - Wildfire
Dec 13, 2020

Wildfire is a great puzzle, built with genius through intelligent techniques that influence the player's creativity in countless ways. Attention is necessary to explore this vibrant pixel art world, and the responsive controls integrated with excellent stealth gameplay provide that, and accessibility options makes it accessible for all audiences. Although eventual fps drops may slow the experience a little, the game from Sneaky Bastards is a 2D side-scrolling that values pacifism and will leave you ecstatic while playing with fire.

8.5 / 10.0 - Bugsnax
Nov 13, 2020

Bugsnax has a wonderful story and adorable characters that will make you feel happy and sentimental all the time, especially when incorporating important themes like mental health, togetherness and friendship. It is too entertaining and intriguing to give up in the middle of the campaign, even if it is necessary to ignore its repetitive gameplay and its frequent and irritating loading screens. Ultimately, capturing creatures that are half insect, half snack nourishes life with joy and good feelings, however bizarre it may seem.

6 / 10.0 - A Tale of Paper
Oct 31, 2020

A Tale of Paper explores the depths and meanings of human life in a subtle way through a sweet and loving story with an empathetic and passionate character who sees himself in the form of origami to present creative and original mechanics. The atmosphere and the minimalist soundtrack expands a narrative for a stunning visual Paradise. Although brief and superficial, this paper trip is still satisfying. Unfortunately the erasures exposed in its playable structure are almost incorrigible and put the title in an adverse situation. It is a simple journey, without many challenges and with problematic physics, but it has the power to bring light through the darkness.

6 / 10.0 - Cloudpunk
Oct 25, 2020

Cloudpunk is sensitively impeccable and presents an immersive futuristic atmosphere with high quality visuals and soundscapes, designed exclusively to delight the eyes and ears of the players. It is a title focused on exploration and narrative with some thought-provoking and sad stories, almost like a self-portrait of our own reality, where the characters are victims of the inequality of a system corrupted by richer organizations. It is a pity that much of this is lost in a fragile playable structure, where repetition and countless loading screens corrupt the entire package, resulting only in an exhausting and not very challenging journey.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time does not feature any major innovations, but it is still excellent enough to entertain and delight. It is a sequel worthy of a successful series with enhanced elements from the original trilogy, renewed visual and soundtrack and competent and challenging gameplay. The inclusions of new playable characters, varied environments and mechanics from the four quantum masks are quite satisfactory, and the comic tone coupled with the great dubbing helps to create an unforgettable and extremely funny adventure.

3 / 10.0 - Tamarin
Sep 20, 2020

Tamarin lacks polish and not even the great soundtrack and the interesting interconnected 3D world saves it from a confused and meaningless story with characters without charisma. It's a monotonous and exhausting title, with poorly designed mechanics, annoying camera and inaccurate and problematic gameplay. The absence of markers in a semi-open world that is visually polluted and disorganized makes exploration repetitive, frustrating and almost anything challenging, and even though the shooting experience is less terrible than the platform experience, there are not enough reasons to check out the game.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Last Campfire
Sep 13, 2020

The Last Campfire is a pleasant surprise and a radiant interactive fable about the light and goodness that exist in each one of us. It is a title with adorable characters that warm our hearts and an unforgettable journey through a magical, vibrant and contemplative world. Although it has some slight performance and gameplay problems, in addition to the lack of Portuguese dubbing, this beautiful and comforting story about empathy, loss and hope contextualizes each puzzle brilliantly, delivering a simple, sensitive and joyful experience for all ages.
