While these two games attempt to do something unique and bold, LISA: The Painful and LISA: The Joyful still misfire and instead tell a story that works against their own ends, ultimately feeling gratuitous and pointless.

The level of interactivity in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, its puzzles, and the feelings you get while playing it are beyond compare. It's not perfect, but you shouldn't miss out on it because this is a fantastic game.

Crash Team Rumble stumbles in some crucial areas that could've easily been fixed before launch, but what it manages to get right makes up for almost all of its negatives. It's recommended for fans of Crash Bandicoot and multiplayer players alike.

Ship Graveyard Simulator is a fun simulation title. In theory, it should be awful; however, it is addictive and demands you keep playing. Break each ship, hire workers, and get rich.

7 / 10.0 - Nightmare Reaper
Jun 1, 2023

Nightmare Reaper is filled with content, and all of it's packed into a highly replayable experience. It's a fast, furious, and liberatingly violent action romp based on a mostly successful procedural structure. But it's still worth checking out.

7 / 10.0 - Panic Porcupine
May 8, 2023

Panic Porcupine has tight controls, an accessible difficulty system, and fun level design. But it often feels repetitive, and its camera works against the player instead of the other way around. It could've been something special if it wasn't for all that negative stuff.

Lost Dream: Darkness feels like a big pile of nothing most of the time, and it doesn't have anything to offer for someone looking for an in-depth and complicated experience. If it wasn't for its sound design and convincing nature setting, this game might be getting kicked off a mountain for what it's done.

7.5 / 10.0 - Void Scrappers
Mar 26, 2023

I really wanted to love Void Scrappers, and I enjoyed the first few hours of what I played quite a lot, but after a while, I noticed its problems and how easily they could've been fixed before release. However, I'm still looking forward to the next game from 8BitSkull because of this title's addicting nature.

Remorse: The List is a game that needs to be on everyone's radar. Some little annoyances aside, the feelings you will get from this game, with its unique atmosphere and genuine spooks, make for a fantastic horror experience.

Nadir: A Grimdark Deckbuilder seems like the developers wanted to make a roguelike and then decided to make a story-focused game halfway through without ever following through on that desire. If Black Eye Games had fixed some of this game's glaring issues, we could've had something cool here, but there are still much better options out there.

Demolish & Build Classic looks like an original PlayStation game, runs like an early PlayStation 3 game, and controls like a half-hearted attempt at something similar to Grand Theft Auto. Its fun feedback loop, spooky soundtrack, and satisfying sound effects should not go unnoticed, though, and they helped this title avoid pure garbage status.

6.5 / 10.0 - NEScape!
Feb 4, 2023

NEScape! is a great concept with some clever puzzles, and I enjoyed the rush they gave me, but some minor issues held it back.

7 / 10.0 - Graze Counter
Jan 22, 2023

A bopping soundtrack, crisp visuals, and a unique gameplay twist aren't enough to save Graze Counter GM, as it's not quite as replayable as advertised.

6.5 / 10.0 - Divine Knockout
Dec 18, 2022

Divine Knockout(DKO) had so much potential, but it falls into the trap many other multiplayer games fall into, focusing too much on one area with every other area being barely touched. It would be doing much worse if it weren't for the visuals and fun gameplay.

Kukoos: Lost Pets is a fun and charming 3D platformer with a ton of charm and weirdness that can't be found in other titans of the genre. So while its story and performance could use some work, everything else that it gets right more than makes up for it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Aquarist
Nov 14, 2022

Aquarist on the Nintendo Switch is a pleasant and relaxing aquarium simulator with clunky controls, bad visuals, and an overall lack of story context. If you're in the mood for something like it, I recommend being very cautious or just playing the PC version instead.

7 / 10.0 - Chaos;Child
Nov 5, 2022

Chaos;Child was a bit of a disappointment for me. I enjoyed its improvements, but the previous game did things in a more interesting way, as it was all new to me. So having problems reappear while new ones came to light didn't convince me that this was a worthwhile sequel.

7.5 / 10.0 - Chaos;Head Noah
Nov 1, 2022

The team behind Chaos;Head Noah, did a fine job doing what they set out to do, but confusing choices surrounding their game's interactivity and accessibility features aren't enough to save its gorgeous animation or strong plot and characters.

Gunslingers & Zombies does a good job of delivering on a simple premise while having a unique visual style. It just isn't the best port out there, and it left me feeling like something was missing.

7.5 / 10.0 - Penko Park
Oct 4, 2022

Penko Park's undeniable influences and not-so-stellar content make it a bit of a hard sell, but for those looking for a Pokémon Snap-style game, it's a fine choice.
