Unscored - Abyss Odyssey
Jul 15, 2014

The important thing is that what's available now is really good, utilizing a fighting engine that rewards creativity in using its moves and set in a dungeon loaded with replayability. The art nouveau style is more apparent in the 2D character portraits than the polygonal graphics but still give the game a unique tone, like playing a Grateful Dead album cover.

Lichdom: Battlemage is a big, complicated, awesome beast of an FPS.  When you've got a system down and are tearing through enemies you feel like magic incarnate, wielding the secrets of the universe to eviscerate all in your path.

2 / 5.0 - Randall
Jun 8, 2017

Randall should be better than this. It's got all the elements in place to be good but they just don't work right.

2 / 5.0 - Lovely Planet
Aug 9, 2014

Lovely Planet looks great on paper.  Flat-shaded polygons, whimsical level structure, dozens and dozens of challenging little levels and a fun sountrack should have made for a great round of enjoyably strange FPS action.

2 / 5.0 - Zombeer
Feb 2, 2015

Fortunately, it falls apart in a semi-entertaining fashion; not in a "so bad it's good" way but rather a "can't look away" way.  For all the well-deserved kicking I've given Zombeer, I also pushed through to finish the game not because I was obligated to for the review, but because I was morbidly curious as to where it was going.

3 / 5.0 - Ray's the Dead
Nov 4, 2020

Ray's the Dead is a hard game to either recommend or trash, balanced neatly between being a charming and much-smarter-than-it-looks zombie-fest and a buggy mess punctuated by painfully blatant '80s nostalgia.

3 / 5.0 - Skelattack
Jun 3, 2020

Skelattack doesn't know what it wants to be but despite this I did end up getting just a little more enjoyment than aggravation out of it.

3 / 5.0 - Sonar Beat

Sonar Beat is a clever rhythm game with a pleasant soundtrack and a good visual style.

3 / 5.0 - Crimson Keep
Dec 5, 2018

Despite its issues I kept on plugging away at Crimson Keep, not just to review it, but because it feels like if I can just figure out how to work around its shortcomings there's a great dungeon crawl waiting to be found.

3 / 5.0 - Tenta Shooter
Dec 15, 2017

Tenta Shooter is a perfectly decent bullet-hell arcade game with a simple mechanic that provides nice flexibility in both score-chasing and surviving the levels.
