9 / 10.0 - TEVI
Nov 30, 2023

Despite appearing to be just another metroidvania among many, TEVI stands out for a combat system full of possibilities and an engaging story full of captivating characters and memorable bosses. Some problems related to the lack of variety in certain regions, occasionally frustrating moments due to the difficulty that affect some of the experience and a slight drag in the running time in the final stretch of the game are notable problems, but they certainly do not erase the shine of the adventure.

With an unusual gameplay to master and a surreal, charismatic world, this is definitely one of the surprises of the year. If you're looking for an excellent platformer with a unique and nostalgic concept, it's very recommended!

Another Crab’s Treasure is a pleasant surprise in a game style that may be a little overused nowadays. The title stands out for its dynamic battles, well-planned level design and a focus on platforming, besides a story that, while not deep, is compelling due to its characters. Accessibility choices expand the title's potential beyond the audience already familiar with From Software's formula and may fuel discussions about an "easy mode" in this kind of game. Even with technical issues, I already consider it one of the best of the year.

8 / 10.0 - Pocket Bravery
Sep 13, 2023

Pocket Bravery doesn't present major innovations to the genre and may not reach the same highlight as big names in the industry. However, it's a charismatic fighting game with a distinctive art style, having captivating characters and a really interesting, well-written story. Though a few technical issues may hinder it, it offers a fun and functional mechanical experience. It's a great homage to fighting games and it shows the talent of yet another studio from our country.

8 / 10.0 - Berserk Boy
Mar 5, 2024

Berserk Boy is frenetic and satisfying. Even if the challenges become repetitive, performing a well-executed combo and reaching the end of a session in perfect form is very rewarding. It is in the gameplay that the title stands out, as the graphics are not so striking. Highly recommended for fans of 2D action games and for those who miss the Zero and ZX aspects of Mega Man.

8 / 10.0 - Crow Country
May 18, 2024

Crow Country gets it right by incorporating the customs of old survival horror titles in a new guise, both attracting those nostalgic for classic horror and becoming accessible to those looking for another “ugly horror” to enjoy. Despite the ease of combat, the puzzles are creative and the environment, with the use of pre-rendered aesthetics, highlights it as a great option in the genre.

Despite the simplicity and linearity of the campaign, Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story gets the setting and plot right, mainly due to its captivating characters. The friendship between the protagonists is presented in a charming way, instigating curiosity in the same way that the energetic boy is attracted to adventures throughout the game.

While the transition to 3D has brought some technical woes, Spark the Electric Jester 2 is one of the few examples of indie games with this high-speed three-dimensional platforming bent. Making this type of game is a huge challenge, after all, even Sonic Team went through difficulties in some hedgehog titles. Feperd Games took a step beyond the technical capacity to do so, but the potential created is quite evident here — and the third game, also already released, corrects many of these rough edges.

7 / 10.0 - Air Twister
Nov 8, 2023

Though it may not be a remarkable adventure and doesn't extend itself for dozens of hours, Air Twister stands out as a fun and casual rail shooter with a modern approach to the '80s spirit. It's a perfect title for short gameplay bursts for high scores and content unlocking, but keep in mind repetitiveness is a factor always present in this war.

7 / 10.0 - Prison City
Nov 27, 2023

Prison City fulfills its premise competently, featuring stunning visuals and a unique weapon as its main feature. The less linear structure of the levels, the references to pop culture and the engaging boss battles provide fun moments, despite their resistance; however, compared to several other productions that are inspired by retro works, the game lacks its own identity that sets it apart.

Even with some issues, Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft still is a good collection that makes Lara Croft's origins more accessible in the current platforms, especially for those who already experienced these adventures before, and adds beautiful visuals. However, new players will still have to handle the difficulties of Lara's gameplay and the obtuse level design. For those people, Tomb Raider: Anniversary (Multi) remains a better entrypoint.

6.5 / 10.0 - Slave Zero X
Feb 29, 2024

Slave Zero X is a game that will depend a lot on the player's taste, and that's okay. For those who want to be challenged to achieve amazing rankings and combos using everything the combat system offers, you will have a satisfying feast for the few hours of the main mode. For those who just want a no-fuss beat 'em up, it's best to look for something different.

Contra: Operation Galuga is a fun title that can be a good direction for the franchise going forward, keeping the best parts of what it has to offer to the genre. Though it plays too safe and doesn't bring many novelties, I believe it to be what we need after years without something we could call at least decent. Unfortunately, the audiovisual presentation significantly hinders the final quality and its price isn't justified by the content it offers.

An undeniable merit of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is the opportunity to enjoy these classics on modern platforms, making it a valid collection. However, the absence of graphic customizations on PC along with the absence of the enhancements of Snake Eater's 3DS port and the omission of titles such as the MGS1 remake for GameCube and the excellent Game Boy Color title Ghost Babel, make it an incomplete package.

6 / 10.0 - Ninja Issen
Jan 13, 2024

Despite the criticisms in this text, it's possible to notice the good intentions and notable developer care in Ninja Issen. Considering it's a solo work,the game is competent and offers fun sometimes. However, it's clear the title needs more polishing time as the bugs really compromise the experience.

Astor: Blade of the Monolith suffers from a scope that seems too large for the team's capabilities. Although the combat is diversified due to the improvements and weapons acquired, and the setting is eye-catching, the campaign becomes increasingly uninteresting and prolonged, without presenting enough variety to keep the player engaged. The result is an empty game that, despite not being exactly bad, doesn't bring anything special.

Currently the Avatar franchise has been getting more attention with new productions for TV, streaming, cinema and comics. The rich universe created in 2005 will have many opportunities to attract new audiences and to continue appealing to the fans. However, it's regrettable that the games based on the franchise aren't receiving the same care as the other media.
