It's hard to believe that something as crazy sounding as rhythm-based rougelike would actually work, but Necrodancer proved it could be done well and Cadence of Hyrule took it a step further by improving multiple facets of gameplay and visuals.

4 / 5.0 - Gato Roboto
May 30, 2019

While Gato Roboto could stand to be a more fleshed-out metroidvania game, it's still a highly enjoyable action game overall. Kiki's adventure is one chock full of classic NES-era action, nicely challenging combat, fun gameplay and charming visuals. It's a short burst of action, but one you won't forget anytime soon. So thankfully, there is more to the game to love beyond just a cat inside a mechanical suit. But come on, can you really resist Kiki's kickass cuteness?

4 / 5.0 - Observation
May 21, 2019

While it could have done more with its central concept, Observation is a terrific, thrilling adventure game and a superb follow-up for No Code. The blend of the realistic workings of space exploration along with more bizarre elements is perfectly executed and creates an engrossing story with a haunting atmosphere that you'll want to see through.

HAL Laboratory's quadrilateral little protagonist (and co) may be dishing out the same escapades as he's done for what is the fourth entry in the studio's still-young puzzle-platformer series, but BoxBoy! + BoxGirl! proves the series is just as charming and as enjoyable as it's always been.

It's fortunate that the series' brutal kill-cam's and strategic emphasis in gameplay persist here, as it's clear that V2 Remastered is far from complete a package the "remastered" brand might suggest.

Worldend Syndrome isn't going to change anyone's minds about visual novels.

Episode 3: Wastelands might be a shorter experience compared to past episodes, but that doesn't stop Dontnod from pulling off an excellent story at the halfway point of Life Is Strange 2.

It's weird how a developer who is both so skilled at crafting visual novels and dungeon crawlers ended up creating a game that is not perfectly suited toward either audience.

The World Next Door is not a title that's going to rock anyone's world, but it's a good title that would be worth checking out for someone wanting something a little different.
