Knight of Honor II has been quite an amazing title, perfect for newbies and old strategists alike. Strategically interesting, with a remarkable visual design but it has an AI that leaves something to be desired and sometimes in some events it can be unfair. Even so, the title has managed to be quite a success, a title that shortens the distance between civilization and Crusader kings, leaving a great taste in the mouth.

85 / 100 - Potion Craft
Dec 21, 2022

I didn't expect Potion Craft: Alchemist Simulator to be such a good title, the good sound design and its visual simplicity are great components of a title with an excellent casual/strategic mix. Although sometimes we can be overwhelmed by the recipes that our customers ask for. Still, it's a lovely game if you're a fan of casual or strategy games.

The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is an excellent addition to the series. There is definitely more good than bad in this edition and fans will be delighted. The only piece that is really missing is an interesting drawing game; there is a round of drawing in Nonsensory, but it is not the center of attention. On the other hand, thanks to transduction we will be able to have this and future installments adapted to our language.

65 / 100 - Wavetale
Dec 12, 2022

Wavetale is calm and relaxing, perhaps more so. A platformer with little replayability, a limited world, and zero challenge. A title to chill and surf for a while in a very well built world with a charming story, supported by a notable artistic section that is limited by its playable deficiencies.

90 / 100 - IXION
Dec 7, 2022

With IXION the folks at Bulkwark Studios have radically traded in their alternate future formula for a compelling and well written space odyssey set in the far reaches of the universe. The connection between the gameplay and the dynamic narrative is impressive, and the result is a great experience.

70 / 100 - Hello Neighbor 2
Dec 6, 2022

Hello Neighbor 2 has improved everything from its previous installment. The title is committed to an improved artistic section and an improvement in the logic of its puzzles. In addition, an inventory has been added to be able to store objects but it maintains its rough control and cannot innovate. I'm sure the Eerie Guest is on the right track and they've made a very good sequel.

70 / 100 - Soccer Story
Nov 29, 2022

Soccer Story takes inspiration from great releases, Inazuma eleven comes to mind because of their similarities. Its voxel design and its history make the title highly recommended, but it is overshadowed by its repetitive missions and some bugs that have prevented us from progressing. Despite this, with a few tweaks, it manages to be a good arcade soccer alternative.

A Little to the Left, is a title that bets on its simplicity, stacking and ordering is everything in a mundane aspect and its result is quite gratifying, a calm game that offers good moments of peace. Although at times it is certainly repetitive and its hint system does not try to be conclusive, leaving us with serious doubts and making our moment of peace a pleasant nightmare.

Live by the Sword: Tactics is a traditional TRPG with a few interesting innovations but they don't end up giving an optimal result, except for an adventure mode that takes the chestnuts out of the fire and many other modes that it's better to ignore.

The Last Hero of Nostalgaia is a full-fledged soulslike, with a humorous touch, a sublime artistic section, and little to object to. Sometimes the enemies and some weapons may have the same set of movements but it is the only bad thing that I have been able to find within this work that will touch our most nostalgic side.

Asterigos: Curse of the Stars is the perfect mix between Souls and hack & slash. I would have liked that the formula of the first one had been respected more in some aspects, but due to its variety of enemies, scenarios and the different weapons to use, Asterigos leaves a great taste in the mouth, becoming one of the best soul-slashes I've ever played. in this last year.

80 / 100 - Sunday Gold
Oct 6, 2022

Sunday Gold is a fun, if sometimes frustrating, point & click adventure game with a simple turn-based combat system, and an elaborate narrative about bad guys trying to be good guys. It's not Disco Elysium and it doesn't try. Without a doubt, it is a title to take into account, just because of its successful mix.

There Is No Light is a totally recommendable title, although it doesn't quite shine as it would like, the game has a sensational visual aspect and a great narrative, but sometimes it is vague. Its combat system is quite mediocre and therefore ends up taking its toll on the overall rating.

The Outbound Ghost is a title that, despite its good story and its interesting visuals, falls short of the gameplay, being a monotonous title that fails to innovate and leaves us with a completely satisfactory feeling.

Excellent rhythmic FPS that will surprise us despite its short duration. Metal HellSinger has an excellent audiovisual section and also offers us exceptional gameplay, without a doubt one of the best current FPS that you can face.

80 / 100 - Tinykin
Sep 8, 2022

Tinykin is a sensational 3D platform game loaded with collectibles with a total duration of 6 or 7 hours, and an exceptional finish that makes it one of the best games of the genre to be released this year. A MUST HAVE in the category, despite the fact that it still has certain performance problems.

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is a direct action RPG where we have to explore the depths of the abyss. It's not a graphic wonder nor does it look for it, but together with its mediocre gameplay and its repetitive mission system, it makes exploring the abyss recommended for fans of manga or anime.

75 / 100 - Restless Soul
Sep 1, 2022

Restless Soul is committed to surprising each and every one of its screens, it is not a really difficult title, although it is somewhat rough in its gameplay in action. Even so, it has certain adjustments to adapt its difficulty. The title has full compatibility and a more than acceptable duration of 5 hours. It is a highly recommended title if you are looking for a surprising title with a good story full of humor.

Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed, this is a nice break from the real world. It maintains its black humor and has a very revitalized audiovisual aspect. It may not be the work of art that it was on Xbox and PlayStation 2, but it is still a hilarious title and highly recommended.
