Alwa’s Legacy is a lovely little metroidvania game well worth sinking time into. The developers clearly took lots of time crafting this world, making the enemy encounters and puzzles count. They made a game that feels wholesome and Zoe is a memorable character. Colourful, charming and a delight to play this is not a gem to let slip away whether your old or young.
ZOIDS Wild: Blast Unleashed is a fun arena brawler to pick up and play for fans of the series and youngsters who can catch the english dub of the anime on Netflix (if it’s available in your region) alike. The lack of an online mode is rather baffling to me but I cannot deny that there is a good bit of fun and entertainment to be had here and I had a fun time playing the game.
Ghost of a Tale has charming characters, lore, and brilliant storytelling. All together they provide an immersive world for the player to get lost in. While it does have a few little hiccups with the graphics, it is not enough to spoil the gameplay. Ghost of a Tale is a lovely game with a meaningful story. With a great cast of characters, a game all enthusiasts of adventure, role-playing genres should try. I challenge you to not fall in love with Tilo. It is a challenge I would say is impossible as Tilo is so cute!!
I have to admit, whilst some of the combat would leave me stumped and a little frustrated, there is plenty of humour laced throughout Falcon Age. And the adorable moments with your feathered friend are brilliant. Bonding has never been more wholesome I managed to complete the game in around 15 hours. I got stuck a few times, went the wrong way more often than I like to admit. It is a cute game to play, and if it’s looking good already, wait until you play Falcon Age.
It’s a pity the game is let down by the translation. It feels like they didn’t pay enough attention to that, giving it a good translation would make the game much more enjoyable. Which brings me to my conclusion: I’m a bit torn. If you like fashion and you are into the anime style, then I’d say this is a good game. Not a great one, for that it needs more spit and polish. If you want your fashion game more along the lines of Style Boutique, then maybe this isn’t the one for you. Still, SELFY COLLECTION is very much about making combinations with the 5,000 items you can collect and about making your own avatar amazing. Even though I’m more on the Style Boutique side, I like the dress up factor.
Two Parsecs from Earth feels more like a blueprint to the start of something bigger. Maybe it was budget restrictions who knows. All it really ends up being is a simple find the collectibles title with clunky controls. I know for myself how hard game development is but it’s hard not to point out that there are other Metroidvania games out there that feel more rewarding to play and cost less. It’s not bad by any stretch but it does easily sit in the realm of mediocre.
You can see the love the developers have put into the game while your playing it. Yes, some areas do become repetitive as most games do at some stage. However, Crown Trick has all the right elements to make it a fantastic dungeon crawler. A good indicator for me of how much I like or love a game when I’m writing a review is that by the time I get to the conclusion to have my last say, I’m busting to finish it off so I can go and play. And that is how I feel about Crown Trick, it has ticked all the right dungeon crawler boxes for me! It’s a wonderful game, with its turn-based combat, where each move is full of possibilities and each battle is a challenge.
Foregone is brilliant looter action game worth sinking time into to. The graphics are gorgeous the combat fluid and rewarding. I enjoyed exploring the world and experimenting with various weapons. It may look like certain games but Foregone easily stands on its own. A real treat on the Switch.
Dead Z Meat is a fun silly zombie shooter with some glaring control issues. Its not as good as shooter games seen on the Wii or older consoles but if you’re hungry like a Zombie this is a decent but flawed attempt on Switch. For me it was the right amount of silly I needed right now. I hope the developers get another crack at this formula and return with a more polished experience next time.
This is a standard hidden object game with all the usual toys you expect for the genre. While there is nothing new brought to the genre in the game, nevertheless fans of the series will probably enjoy this game. Whilst The Secret Order: Return to the Buried Kingdom has way more mini-games and puzzles than there are hidden object scenes, I did enjoy my short time (approx 3/4 hours) with the game even if I didn’t feel challenged.
