This Is Not A Review: Katana Kata

Katana Kata_20210404113420

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Katana Kata available on PS4, PS5, XBX/S, XBO, Switch and PC. Developed and published by Stas Shostak, Stanislav Shostak and Samustai Limited.


Bladed Fury Review

The Princess Is In Another Castle (Murdering Everyone)


HIGH Fluid and fast-paced 2D hack-‘n-slash action.

LOW The English translation is (I assume) hurting the story.

WTF I’m guessing the names would mean more if I knew Chinese lore.


Mail Mole Review

Here’s The Mail, It Never Fails


HIGH It’s oozing with charm and tight controls.

LOW It’s a bit derivative at times. 

WTF Now I want Mail Mole merch.  


What The Fork Review

Not Too Forking Bad


HIGH Playing creative levels with friends.

LOW Playing alone.

WTF Watching the forklift fly across the screen when the physics glitch out.


Voidigo Preview

The roguelite genre has seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years, with a few notables receiving widespread critical acclaim and sales to match. Given this kind of competition, a newcomer really needs to make its mark in order to stand out, and even in early access Voidigo is one to check out.
