8 / 10.0 - Moonscars
Sep 28, 2022

Moonscars uses agile action to create a good interpretation of the soulslike genre. The fast-paced combat is the highlight and, as usual, the difficulty is intense, but fair. The maps are not memorable and the battle mechanics evolve little over the course of the journey, but the constant frenzy and tension manages to compensate for these imperfections. The dark fantasy universe envelops us with the elaborate visuals and bleak atmosphere, reinforcing the dark themes. The setting is cryptic and thought-provoking, but the excess of obscure dialogue hinders the pace. In the end, Moonscars is a remarkable experience.

8 / 10.0 - Chenso Club
Sep 27, 2022

Chenso Club can even be deceiving by its strong colors and cartoon protagonists, but it's a very well designed challenge for those who like to suffer with well-structured roguelikes, even with the increasing pace of difficulty. It just needs some gameplay tweaks to be perfect.

7.5 / 10.0 - SpiderHeck
Sep 27, 2022

SpiderHeck is a pretty cool multiplayer to spend hours on end locally. The absence of online participants is a little frustrating, and the single-player content is challenging enough, but a little tiring. Still, it's good to leave this title prepared for weekend afternoons.

Shovel Knight Dig proves the versatility of the Shovel Knight in a great roguelike action title. Digging deeper and deeper is addictive, and the mix of platforming, combat, and exploration moments makes the stages pretty frenetic. In addition, there is a good variety of content to explore and the atmosphere oozes charisma with the great 16-bit pixel art style visuals. Even with so many qualities, the game has very annoying problems, such as hazards that appear by surprise, unbalanced aspects and the position of the camera that hinders some movements. It's important to be willing to overlook these negatives, but overall, the result is positive. In the end, Shovel Knight Dig is yet another great addition to the franchise.

6.5 / 10.0 - eFootball 2023
Sep 24, 2022

eFootball 2023 finally took the franchise out of the relegation zone, putting it in a more comfortable position. The sharper visuals, the inclusion of more teams, and the significant improvement in gameplay made the free-to-play experience adequate and fun. The thing is, some of the biggest issues remain, including limited local experience and minimally enough content.

8 / 10.0 - Jack Move
Sep 23, 2022

Jack Move is a modern JRPG that pays homage to its origins by bringing a very casual experience of a genre that usually demands a lot from players with a well-written plot, well-built characters and simple gameplay to master. It is great for those looking for a less demanding, but still satisfying, experience in this classic video game genre.

Return to Monkey Island is a tight hug for fans of the series. The game features familiar mechanics from the original games with the addition of elements that make the adventure more intuitive and dynamic. Despite its accessibility, it will hardly be as attractive to those who don't know the details of Monkey Island's history, being a product intended mainly for older fans of the series. But that doesn't take away from its shine. All elements of the game manage to captivate the player in the story brilliantly. It's a light, innocent and funny adventure that oozes charisma in all its aspects, just like in its first games.

7.5 / 10.0 - Temtem
Sep 22, 2022

Temtem is a fun RPG, but it definitely lacks originality. Without a lot of ideas of its own, it's hard not to think about the concept of a missed opportunity, especially when you consider the creators' multiplayer ambitions and the pretty stable formula. Even so, it is an adventure recommended for fans of the genre — it is enough that expectations are properly dosed, as there is absolutely nothing revolutionary here.

No Place for Bravery takes a serious and mature look at the hopes and fears of a father searching for his missing daughter. Every aspect of the game competently fits together to create a gripping story, as well as presenting a richly detailed and very interesting mythology. Despite occasional bugs and inaccuracy in the platform sections, this game is highly recommended for those looking for a moving story and challenging combat.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R may not be a 100% new product, but it manages to kill the longing for fans who were bitter about the previous title in the series. Even leaving those who don't know the characters in the dark, its performance improvements make it a great fighting game, with a varied cast and a lot of charisma.

8 / 10.0 - Tinykin
Sep 9, 2022

Tinykin is a nice 3D platform action adventure. Agile exploration is its biggest asset, and the stages encourage us to explore every nook and cranny with their well-thought-out locations. In addition, there are many interesting puzzles that require finding and using the different tinykin — the challenge is low, but it's fun to be able to solve the creative puzzles. A light and charismatic atmosphere makes the experience even more immersive. The stages are expansive and there are some very interesting unique concepts, however the game suffers from some issues, such as the simplicity of tinykin use and situations that are repeated from start to finish. This does not impact the journey as a whole, but it is still a missed opportunity. All in all, Tinykin is really worth it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Madden NFL 23
Sep 8, 2022

EA has shown that it has listened to fans of the franchise after the bad feedback of the last two years and has brought small changes that give more options for how to play the classic American football simulator. The graphical improvements in the new generation are very sharp and the amount of bugs has decreased. The game modes are pretty much the same and the small changes don't sustain interest for long.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina became more interesting in the long run than some of its "big brothers" for simple reasons like free content and easy-to-handle gameplay. It's an excellent title coming from a studio that once again hits the nail on the head in a genre that is beginning to lack new and fresh ideas.

Pac-Man World RePac presents a renewed and beautiful production that only highlights the qualities of the original game: well-thought-out levels, solid gameplay, many challenges to discover and face. Unfortunately, this has also left out many standard elements of current games, such as online functions and cosmetics. Even with this limitation, the experience is still very good and worth the place in your library, especially for fans of the platform and the late yellow acorn.

7.5 / 10.0 - Islets
Sep 6, 2022

Islets is a metroidvania that enchants with its charisma. Exploring floating islands is quite enjoyable as there is a great balance and variety between combat, exploration and platforming. The boss battles, in particular, are very creative and interesting. Also, the atmosphere is lovely, with humorous characters and beautiful visuals. The game competently executes the main platform concepts, but leaves something to be desired as metroidvania with some underdeveloped ideas. However, the intention is clear to offer a friendly and relaxed experience, and in that the title gets it right. In the end, Islets is a simple and captivating adventure.

SD Gundam Battle Alliance is yet another product that suffers from the stigma of anime-based games, as it has elements that will be better used and valued by those who enjoy the original product. Despite the great quality with many elements to please the fans, the repetitiveness and lack of inspiration in the progression does not contribute to attract the interest of more players, even those who don't even know what a Mobile Suit is.

9.5 / 10.0 - Soul Hackers 2
Sep 5, 2022

Soul Hackers 2 is an entry that manages to showcase with primacy the potential that a Soul Hackers series can have within the Shin Megami Tensei universe. It's a thought-provoking new beginning and an honest return to a classic world that deserves to be explored further.

Lobotomy Corporation features a strong narrative that is combined with unique and challenging gameplay, but the concept itself and a major technical issue make it difficult to recommend to everyone.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Company Man
Sep 2, 2022

The Company Man takes advantage of a very well thought out charm, coming from its charisma. It can be completed in under two hours, but exploring each reference makes us want to stay a little longer. Don't be surprised if, even after you've finished your journey, you feel like working a few extra hours.

Besides offering a story that's very rich in details about the nazi occupation in Denmark territory, Gerda: A Flame in Winter puts us in situations in which we have to leave logica aside and follow our intuition, making the immersion guaranteed. The game's visual presentation is adequate to its proposal and has a unique charm, and, while a little rare, the sound work, when it is used, manages to transport us to the World War II period. Unfortunately, while it has a dub in the key moments and good controls, the lack of a Portuguese interface may weaken the experience to someone who hasn't mastered one of the available languages.
