Ashwalkers Review

Strolling Through The Grey


HIGH Great balance of management and narrative.

LOW Characters don’t interact with each other as much.

WTF The random morale drops made me sad. 


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.


Overboard! Review

Murder Is Hard Work

HIGH Finding out what was making noise in (redacted)’s cabin.

LOW It’s easy to screw up a run with a single bad click.

WTF That is one of the most unusual hint systems ever!


Conqueror 940 AD Review

Play, Wait, Conquer


HIGH It delivers the thoughtful pace needed for this genre.

LOW No interaction with the environment. Gameplay takes place in a dashboard.

WTF The item description text is so small, it can barely be seen.


Death Crown Review

Push And Pull


HIGH The art style. The stripped-down formula.

LOW Not figuring out certain things until nearly the end of the game.

WTF Getting rocked in the blink of an eye playing Demon mode.


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?
