Fox N Forests Review

Romp In The Woods

HIGH The boss battles at the end of each season.

LOW Unlocking the bonus stages is far from rewarding.

WTF Some enemies reappear after death, but others don’t?


Castle Of Heart Review

A Knight In Corroded Armor

HIGH The storybook intro and outro are rather nice.

LOW The controls are atrocious.

WTF A classic-style, side-scrolling platformer that only controls with the analog stick?


Celeste Review

Mountaintop Makepeace

HIGH The final leg of the climb is pretty great, and the ending satisfies.

LOW Overthinking solutions and working harder than necessary.

WTF You said the strawberries had no purpose! Liars!!


Dandara Review

Historical (Science) Fiction

HIGH Dandara’s world is a joy to explore.

LOW The final battle is disappointingly anticlimactic.

WTF I still don’t fully understand what Salt is.


Iconoclasts Review

One Concern-Ed Citizen

HIGH Creativity and inspiration suffuse every aspect of the game…

LOW …though players will need to chew on the writing to get its full flavor out.

WTF It is utterly bonkers that all this was developed by one person!


Little Nightmares: The Hideaway Review

A Recurring Dream

HIGH The furnace room is a hub, and it was satisfying to repeatedly return to it.

LOW This time around, the “Inside-lite” label is earned.

WTF Interacting with the Nomes is the core mechanic — the AI should work better than it does.
