Tetragon Review

Not Quite Squared Away

HIGH Unique puzzles that were tough, but not frustrating.

LOW The out-of-place boss battle in the final stage.

WTF Why ruin a decent game with that baffling final stage!?


Legend Of Mana (2021) Review

Same Legend, Now In HD

HIGH Solving a mission that ends with a great boss fight.

LOW Wandering around for thirty minutes trying to figure out what to do.

WTF How exactly are these towns trapped inside the artifacts!?


Mighty Goose Review

Running, Gunning and Goosing!


HIGH Hopping in a vehicle for extra firepower.

LOW The dodge button not being adjacent to the fire button.

WTF It’s convenient that the goose’s name is Goose.


Shoot 1UP DX Review

Still Great Years Later

HIGH Obtaining 30 ships and then the ghost for twice the firepower!

LOW That ghost always runs out right before a boss battle.

WTF Well hello there, floating half-of-a-lady-robot boss…


Halloween Forever Review

A Sweet Treat

HIGH A well-themed 8-bit platformer that’s heavy on the charm.

LOW Not much guidance on the purpose of in-game collectibles.

WTF Was that boss’s chainsaw supposed to keep going after his death…?


Cyber Shadow Review

Great, Beyond A Shadow Of Doubt

HIGH Great graphics, great controls, fantastic bosses.

LOW A few platforming sections require a little too much precision.

WTF Wait, how long have I been able to swing my sword upward!?
