Smurfs Kart was looking very promising until the gameplay and overall design of the game turned out to be a simple kart race with the Smurfs theme added onto it. Most of the effort was put into creating models and themes, but the rest feels like it was just taken from the basement of the developer’s studio and added little modifiers into it.
For a long time, me and my partner were looking for a coop game to play together, and certainly, How 2 Escape made us come back to play a couple more times than usual. If you are looking for a fast-paced, grey-matter exercising coop game that does not require the internet, How 2 Escape will surely catch your interest.
SPRAWL is a lot of fun when you get the grasp of movement shooters just right. It unveils the possibilities you can do with a given arsenal and environment, and it yields lots of unique ways to beat your way through. It was immensely fun and suited for both regulars of the genre and newcomers who wish to see how it feels. We are definitely sure that SPRAWL is going to get under the radar and stay as an underrated title, and we highly suggest you check SPRAWL out to get its name out there.
Book of Hours, with its narrative and properly implemented story elements, is what a dedicated CRPG fan is looking for. It is not too excessive nor too flashy on the eyes. Simplistic design, loveable characters, a huge map to play on, and complete freedom of the protagonist allow the player to freely choose their own way of getting themselves back on track. Book of Hours is going to be published on
In terms of the overall performance of UFO: Unidentified Falling Objects, it is quite a neat take on the puzzle genre. Six different levels, lots of content to unlock, and every level having its own unique take on the challenges are very solid. From controls to movement, the gameplay is never interrupted, with no lag spikes or slowdowns. We wholeheartedly suggest it if you are itching for a puzzle game that has a high skill ceiling and replay value.
Adore is a nice take on both creature-based combat and MOBA-style gameplay. It does properly execute the ideas well. But, some little nitpicks we had, such as the visual clutter and slow narrative, can be tricky to get through. Besides that, the idea and process of it becoming a proper title with nice addition is a nice thing to see.
Although it might seem hard to get used to at first sight, Frank and Drake are actually full of story-rich elements and likable characters that encapsulate the player into a flowing story and critical forward-thinking. With important choices, it is totally up to us to bring the story to an end. With more than 16 different endings, Frank and Drake emphasize how a small bit of wrongdoing can cause a lot of trouble or a tiny work of help can turn the world around.
Bloodhound just feels alright as an FPS but fails to deliver the actual feeling of old boomer shooters. Despite the lacking key elements, developers still deliver updates and quality-of-life changes to keep the tile fresh and enjoyable. It also helps them to understand what sort of expectations the player base has as well. This leads to shaping the boomer shooter everyone wants instead. If you are looking for a title that still has a nice feel and is a bit different from what you are used to seeing, Bloodhound might be one of them. Just to let you know, approach the game with a pinch of salt, as it might not turn out to be the definitive shooter you were expecting.
Despite some very small questionable parts, in general, Crime O’Clock is a neat title to go through. In some ways, Crime O’Clock is a new way of looking at the point-and-click genre with its unique twist on time elements. You are not always in a rush, and take things slowly at your own pace while solving crimes with the help of your companion and visual story-telling. Its art style and charming way of approaching events are also cute, making it a welcoming game for newcomers to the genre as well. Crime O’Clock completely suits people who are searching for a cozy game with investigations, crime, and detective work.
Everything about Tiny Thor is very generous in terms of being loyal to old platformers and executes the idea well. Graphics, soundtrack, gameplay, the very basic storyline, art style, and many more little bits of creativity added to Tiny Thor makes it a worthwhile experience for both old-timers and newcomers.
20 Minutes Till Dawn is a nice take on the roguelike genre. It is completely reachable in terms of availability with regular updates and a fair price and also can be played as an introduction title for the genre. There might be a lot of games upcoming for the run-and-gun roguelikes, but this game got a favorable state in our catalog nonetheless.
