8.5 / 10.0 - Dice Legacy
Sep 22, 2021

Overall, Dice Legacy is a very fresh and creative entry in a genre that can often feel like every game is just a reskin of another. The use of dice to randomize the actions available and the steady pace of external events changes this from a game of long-term strategy to one of improvisation and reaction. Clean, visually appealing art style wars with a slightly too large UI scale that can obscure much of the play area. Great for people who like to think on their feet and maintain a decent rate of action and excitement for extended periods. Not an at-your-own pace city builder like Cities: Skylines or other descendants of SimCities, however, so look elsewhere if you’re after a quiet, relaxing time.

8.5 / 10.0 - Out of Line
Jul 5, 2021

Overall, Out Of Line lives up to the promise shown in its trailers, and is a nice light addition to one’s game library. As a relatively linear side-scroller I wouldn’t count on extremely high replayability, but endless replays are not really the expectation for this style of game. With no real combat, Out Of Line relies heavily on its well-designed puzzle levels to engage the player, but manages to do this without feeling repetitive or punishing. In the end, if you’re looking for something that gets your adrenaline up, give this a pass. If you’re looking for fun you can share with anyone in the family, or a relaxing end to a stressful day, Out Of Line is an excellent choice, and definitely worth your support.
