Family Ties

HIGH The wonky physics of the first game are gone and the mechanics are a joy.

Kero Blaster Review

Amphibious Ops

HIGH A frog with guns and a jetpack… Pretty sure I’ve had this dream a few times.

WTF I’m still not sure what the story was about.


Pode Review

Catch A Rising Star

HIGH Strong, iterative puzzle design.

WTF The Rock can teleport by swallowing the Star.


Hollow Knight (Switch) Review

The Carapace Must Hold

HIGH Superb animation, tight controls, wonderful world design.

Subaeria Review

Repeatedly Wrecked By Ruthless Robots

Fox N Forests Review

Romp In The Woods
