Retro Machina Review

Retro Not Just In Name


HIGH Enjoyable combat with an interesting art style.

LOW A very limited set of skills and not enough enemy types.

WTF Wait… it’s not a metroidvania ?!


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?


Dragonborne Review

Let Sleeping Dragons Lie

HIGH Lovely presentation reminiscent of a high-quality Game Boy game.  

LOW Combat is unintuitive, and at times unnecessary.

WTF: I can’t believe I used to think 8-bit music in headphones was pleasant.


Cyber Shadow Review

Great, Beyond A Shadow Of Doubt

HIGH Great graphics, great controls, fantastic bosses.

LOW A few platforming sections require a little too much precision.

WTF Wait, how long have I been able to swing my sword upward!?


Habroxia 2 Review

‌Memories Of An Era Long-Gone

HIGH A well-designed futuristic armory.

LOW: Arcade shoot-’em-ups used to be more challenging, didn’t they?

WTF: No support for mouse & keyboard on PC?


Pumpkin Jack Review

A Few Tricks, A Few Treats

HIGH Getting the sword and gun.

LOW Muddied visuals on a Switch Lite. The overall feelings of repetition.

WTF This game might have helped me face my fear of crows.
