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.


Glo Review

Shine Bright Like A… Square?

HIGH The first boss dashing my square to pieces over and over.

LOW Everything about Level 74.

WTF  …Seriously just Level 74.


Deadcore

It’s A Long Way Down

HIGH Witnessing the breathtaking scale of the last level.

LOW How many times did I die? Oh, there is an achievement for that… Dammit, I suck!

WTF And all of this means…?  


Ronin Review

Sharp As Hell

HIGH Killing a guard by recalling my sword in mid-air.

LOW Failing to see a ceiling I could grapple for way, way too long.

WTF No checkpoints in the final level?
