If you have a headset already, the low price of Attack of the Bugs will make it easily obtainable, and introduced me to the genre perfectly. With a good mix of different mechanics on show, and an easy to pick up gameplay premise, I really can’t recommend Attack of the Bugs enough.
Fearful Symmetry & The Cursed Prince provides a very challenging and entertaining 2D puzzle experience to fans of the genre, requiring a mix of reflexes, timing, memory, and multitasking in order to beat the game. It’s gets a little frustrating at times, but it only adds to that feeling satisfaction once you finish a level.
Hello Neighbor tries to offer a unique stealth horror experience unlike any other, and in my opinion, does it well. There are issues such as the difficulty of the puzzles and the physics engine but overall a great game worth your time. I’d recommend it even if you’re not a fan of horror games.
DEATHPIT 3000 is a fun top down coop arcade shooter, it’s good at what it tries to do. Minor issues such as the soundtrack, the lack of online play and gamepad support but those have their own workarounds anyway, so I’d still recommend it especially for the price.
Strafe strives for old school difficulty and scores a little too well. Level design is not varied enough to endure the countless run-throughs required to proceed. Tight corridors, coupled with unfair monster spawns make your deaths feel cheap. The core gunplay is just not meaty enough to carry the game.
It should be more of what made the first installment so interesting, but in the end, Hand of Fate 2 makes additions that turn the dungeon crawler into a story-driven adventure. It also has a major focus on luck-based challenges and fights, being more predictable and frustrating than its predecessor.
