3 / 10.0 - XEL
Aug 7, 2022

XEL paints a beautiful picture but fails to produce anything notable beyond this. Between one-dimensional characters, uninspired combat, and rampant progression barriers, I found very few things to enjoy here. If you are a starved Zelda fan looking for a sci-fi twist or care little about a story this may be worth your time.

10 / 10.0 - Edge of Eternity
Feb 14, 2022

Despite being only developed by a handful of people, Edge of Eternity is by far one of the greatest JRPGs ever made. Its stunning visuals, incredible soundtrack, complex narrative and intricate combat make it an incredibly ambitious title that fulfils each and every promise it makes.

7.5 / 10.0 - Moonglow Bay
Oct 27, 2021

Moonglow Bay is another entry into the ever-growing life sim genre and feels as relaxing and stale as many of the other entries before it.

8.5 / 10.0 - Henchman Story
Oct 15, 2021

Henchman Story is a fun, endearing and extremely witty visual novel that not only pokes fun at superhero flicks and comics but celebrates them too.

9 / 10.0 - Lemnis Gate
Oct 12, 2021

Lemnis Gate is as complex as it is fun. While its complicated mechanics may seem overwhelming at first, when you jump into a match, it feels both intuitive and easy to understand. For its low price point, it would be silly to pass up picking up Lemnis Gate.

7.5 / 10.0 - Monster Crown
Oct 6, 2021

Monster Crown is by no means a bad game. It is an excellent Pokémon clone that brings a lot of much-needed features to the table. However, for those looking for something a little more modern, you'd be best looking elsewhere.

8.5 / 10.0 - Alekon
Jun 30, 2021

Alekon is a stunning photography game with a ton of variety. Whether it's exploring the beautiful and vast locations or playing through the myriad of minigames, Alekon always has something for you to do. Everything in this game is packed full of charm and personality, and we cannot recommend it enough.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is everything that is wrong with remakes. The game fails to innovate on the antiquated design of the original title, and instead, it only offers superficial improvements.

9.5 / 10.0 - The Colonists
May 9, 2021

The Colonists is a genuinely brilliant game that has nuzzled its way nicely onto the Switch. It is a game filled to the brim with brilliant ideas and an abundance of complexity. Yet its streamlined controls and delightfully helpful tutorial supplies you with enough basics that even casual players will be able to understand.

7.5 / 10.0 - Forgotten Fields
Apr 15, 2021

Forgotten Fields is a beautiful game that tells a heartwarming and painfully relatable narrative. While its gameplay can be shallow, and there were numerous visual bugs, Forgotten Fields' narrative is so strong and meaningful that I could overlook its various shortcomings.

7 / 10.0 - Before Your Eyes
Apr 8, 2021

Before Your Eyes is a frustrating buggy mess. There were several times when the game crashed and many more when it refused to stay in focus. But despite all of its shortcomings, Before Your Eyes is an incredible narrative game with a mechanic that can add a tremendous amount to the gameplay. If you feel you can overlook some of its imperfections, then this might just be the game for you.

4 / 10.0 - Paradise Lost
Apr 4, 2021

Paradise Lost is a frustrating experience. While its hauntingly atmospheric environments are a joy to explore, its lacklustre narrative betrays its phenomenal premise. The lack of interactable elements means its already slow-paced gameplay is a slog to get through. Its all too cryptic narrative leaves much to be desired, taking away my care factor for the story's outcome. This is a stunning game with a lot of potential, but it ultimately fails to meet the heights it should.

8 / 10.0 - Genesis Noir
Mar 29, 2021

Genesis Noir is a visually spectacular video game with an enthralling, albeit abstract, narrative. While its more gameplay focused segments often bring the game down a notch, whenever Genesis Noir treats the player to one of its lavishly animated cutscenes, it's hard not to salivate at its gorgeous art style. The eclectic mix of sound and visuals create an experience unlike any other in video game history. Genesis Noir is truly unique, and while not always a fun experience, it is by far one of the most mesmerising adventures I've ever had the pleasure of undertaking.
