Little Nightmares Review

Dreamlike Ambitions, Nightmarish Issues

HIGH The game’s final sequence is appropriately epic.

LOW Wonky physics and difficulty perceiving depth.

WTF Six’s appetite goes beyond stale pieces of bread.


Slayaway Camp Review

Impalement Is Rarely This Good

HIGH The back-of-box movie synopses.

LOW The feeling of spending 100 coins to unlock a puzzle solution that was completely obvious in retrospect.

WTF There’s a Gelatinous Cube.


Die Young Preview

Die Young takes players to a mysterious Mediterranean island and sets them loose in a parched playground packed with wild dogs and scythe-wielding executioners. It offers a stellar opening – the main character awakes at the bottom of dry well, almost dead from thirst. A cover is removed from the top of the well, and instructions are dropped down by a mysterious benefactor, or possibly the villain responsible for the dire situation.


Bucket Detective Review

Oh, Was That The line Back There? Did I Cross It?

HIGH Laughing one moment, shocked the next, and wrapping it all up with a little bow of terror.

LOW “Puzzle game” and “Guess-randomly-because-I-don’t-even-know game” are the same here.

WTF Unexplained naked guys with masks of the Dark Lord?


Weeping Doll Review

Cor Blimey, It’s a Japanese Ghost!

weeping-doll4

HIGH When the doll puzzle added item interaction to the game.

LOW Spending ten minutes looking for a key because it wasn’t clear that I’d completed a puzzle.

WTF Okay, I’m ready for the big finale! Or… the credits, I guess?
