Chernobylite Review

Green Is The New Black

HIGH One of the best sci-fi games I’ve played in the last few years.

LOW Overly simplified combat and survival mechanics.

WTF You have a PhD in nuclear sciences, but can’t throw a rock?


Orbital Bullet Preview

Orbital Bullet is a 2D platformer/roguelite title from SmokeStab studios. As the name might suggest, something that makes it noteworthy is the cylinder-like design of the levels. Players are equipped with different types of ranged weapons and they must clear each level to proceed and reach the boss.


Narita Boy Review

Of Love & Nostalgia

HIGH Unique art direction that brings back memories.

LOW Too many fetch quests — better to call the game Errand Boy instead!

WTF No remappable controls again!? Why does this keep happening to me?


The Eternal Cylinder Preview

It’s only March, but I’m going to say that The Eternal Cylinder will be one the most innovative games of 2021. This action-adventure with survival elements puts the players in the shoes of cute and tiny creatures called Trebhums. Their objective is simple — save their world from the evil Cylinder. However, this basic premise is soon revealed to be a memorable odyssey.


Habroxia 2 Review

‌Memories Of An Era Long-Gone

HIGH A well-designed futuristic armory.

LOW: Arcade shoot-’em-ups used to be more challenging, didn’t they?

WTF: No support for mouse & keyboard on PC?


Bonkies Review

A Space Odyssey, Monkey Style!

HIGH Diverse levels and puzzle mechanics.

LOW Too difficult to play with… anyone, actually!

WTF No remappable controls in 2021? Are you serious!?
