9 / 10.0 - Mini Motorways
Jul 19, 2021

There's no shortage of simulation titles on the market, but Mini Motorways truly shines in both visual aesthetics and skill ramp. But does this mobile port succeed in the move to PC, or is this a wrong turn that took the entire thing off course?

There's a new strategy RPG available for Switch. The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos brings the frenetic and zany humor of John Lang's long-running audio series to modern consoles. Unfortunately, technical issues wreak havoc on the Nintendo Switch experience.

A departure from the publisher's more recent mobile RPG ports, Alphadia Genesis 2 sports 3D graphics, and a more reserved combat system. What remains is a throwback to the late '90s and a distinct feeling of emptiness that never really goes away.

The Wonder Boy renaissance continues with Asha in Monster World, a full remake of Monster World IV that brings our heroine and her platforming abilities to a new audience. This time around, it seems as though even copious amounts of style and charm can't make up for long hallways and minimal direction.

The folks at KEMCO continue to move the needle closer and closer to RPG perfection with Chroma Quaternion, a title that's fun, entertaining, and hard to pronounce. Fans of classic RPGs that have a hard time going back to the limits of the '90s will once again appreciate what this game has to offer.

6 / 10.0 - Poison Control
Apr 12, 2021

It’s time to raise Hell and clean up some demonic mess in Poison Control, the latest action RPG from Nippon Ichi Software. Featuring a unique dual-body mechanic and many, many suggestive themes, this is a title that surprisingly doesn’t come with a vinyl figurine.

8 / 10.0 - Asdivine Cross
Mar 12, 2021

Another fairly recent RPG has made the jump from mobile platforms to modern consoles, this time with Asdivine Cross, the third in a series. But don’t label this as another fluffy phone game. As this review makes clear, something special is going on here.

7 / 10.0 - Castle Kong
Feb 24, 2021

Donkey Kong was the king of arcades in the 1980s, and Castle Kong is here to help us relive some of that magic. With strict adherence to the original classic, this homage includes some quality of life tweaks and, on the Switch, portability.
