No game is truly perfect, as the game’s challenge level may put off some folks who aren’t used to RPGs in general, but I still firmly believe that this game should be in your 3DS library without hesitation, mainly due to how accessible it is thanks to the amount of strategies you can come up with for clearing those dungeons.
Alphadia is not a bad game by any means. In fact, I actually had a lot of decent fun with the game despite its extreme simplicity. It’s easy to play on the go, the touch screen map helps greatly and there’s plenty to keep you occupied for the price tag. The unfortunate thing is, the simplicity really does show, so depending on what you think of such simplistic titles, Alphadia may or may not be for you.
Somehow, someway, Renegade Kid struck gold with the difficulty balance, making the game challenging, yet rewarding, while also being accessible to new fans by teaching them the value of patience. This is how video game difficulty should be, and I’m very pleased to say that Renegade Kid made this title worth the wait.
6 Hand Video Poker is by far the worst Wii U eShop game that I have ever reviewed in my life. I’m not even joking, it’s that poorly made. First you have the horrible presentation, with odd sound effects, irritating background noise, hard-to-read orange text, then you have the gameplay itself which is screwed up so badly that there’s no point in even trying your best when there’s no end in sight.
Continuing the trend from RCMADIAX’s recent titles, Brick Race aims to be a short but sweet high score experience. Being on a portable system, the game feels more at home here on the New 3DS than it would on the Wii U. On the other hand, the game doesn’t do much of anything to take advantage of the New 3DS at all, only powering the engine that runs this game.
Alwa’s Awakening is an incredibly accurate throwback to the NES games of old, and despite it focusing a lot on authenticity rather than trying anything new, it manages to hit all the right notes for a Metroidvania. With a lovely soundtrack, several routes to take on your journey and more, Alwa’s Awakening managed to engage me more than I was expecting it to, and for the $10 price tag I can easily recommend this without hesitation to fans of Metroidvania titles.
DriveDriveDrive is a rather confusing racer to explain. At first the concept of multitasking different race tracks sounds like a stupid idea to pull off, but the team at Different Cloth managed to do it quite well, thanks to tight controls and managing to make the chaotic nature feel fun.
DotEmu did a great job at bringing this obscure entry to consoles, and for the most part the game made a smooth transition from PC to console. Outside of the annoyance with charged attacks and the lackluster analog movement, this game felt right at home on the PS4, and for the $20 pricetag I think it’s certainly worth a buy considering the amount of replay value that’ll come from the challenging trophy list and the multiple characters.
