Pig Eat Ball Review

Porky Pac

HIGH Off-the-wall humor and super quirky gameplay.

LOW It’s been way too long since the last Nathan Fouts game. 

WTF No hesitation in eating those green puke balls, eh?


The Light Keeps Us Safe Preview

There’s very little dialogue in The Light Keeps Us Safe. At the start of the game, the only speaking role is a woman whispering into the player’s communications device, and she’s only around for a few minutes before she leaves. However, she utters one of the most evocative opening lines I’ve heard recently.

“You are lucky, in a way. You got to hide down there for so long. But now you have to deal with it all alone.”


Deep Sky Derelicts Review

Dungeon Crawling… Innnnnn spaaaaaace

HIGH Easy-to-pick-up deck building mechanics.

WTF Accidentally selecting the wrong enemy if they sway a single pixel into my cursor.


Patobox Review

Give ‘Em The Ol’ One-Two!

HIGH Stylish environments and characters.

LOW Everything except the fighting.

WTF Why do duck genes turn people psychotic?


The King’s Bird Review

Platformasochism

HIGH Wide-open levels offering lots of room to play with momentum.

LOW The most absurd difficulty spike I’ve seen in ages.

WTF Inexplicably dashing straight down into hazards.


Shio Review

Not Quite What Dreams Are Made Of

HIGH The well-designed levels allow for quick, smooth action.

LOW Too many sections slow that action down.

WTF I was not expecting the animation for quitting a level. Yikes!


Alter Army Review

Action Amidst A Forgotten World

HIGH Stylish, high-energy action.

LOW Gamebreaking bugs are still being patched.

WTF Who is this character wearing green stretch pants without a shirt?
