Firegirl: Hack ‘N Splash Rescue Review

It’s Getting Hot In Here

HIGH An appealing art style with neat background and lighting design.

LOW The randomly-generated levels hold back the quality of the platforming.

WTF How am I getting thousands of ‘fans?’ Am I streaming these dangerous rescue operations? Who’s filming this!?


Clunky Hero Review

That’s One Off My Bucket List

HIGH Pleasant 2D graphics with nice animated sprites.

LOW Run-of-the-mill platforming gameplay with average humour.

WTF The hipster woodcutter stereotype feels very 2005.


Infernax Review

A Hard Day’s Knight

HIGH The secret ending is the work of pure unfettered genius.

LOW Wandering around pointlessly in search of the entrance to Stormheim.

WTF The markedly more realistic approach to certain Castlevania moments.


Demon Turf Review

The Devil Is In The Details

HIGH Holy hell, these visuals.

LOW The camera can be a bit finicky. 

WTF Why hasn’t this aesthetic been attempted before?


Steel Assault Review

Not Enough To Stay Hooked

HIGH Tough, but do-able boss fights.

LOW The grappling hook can’t be used for attacking.

WTF Seriously, why can’t the grappling hook harm enemies!?


Fallen Knight Review

Just Stay Down…

HIGH It’s reminiscent of classic 2D action games.

LOW Bland levels ending with super-difficult bosses.

WTF How the heck I’m am I supposed to dodge that?!?


Lightbringer Review

A Little Light, A Little Darkness

HIGH Being able to play every level, even without beating previous stages.

LOW Long levels without checkpoints, and too few health boosts.

WTF Was I really supposed to be able to advance without completing the previous level!?
