Children Of Morta Review

Generations Of Guardians

HIGH Exciting battles against impossible odds. A terrific story.          

LOW An ill-advised timed section.

WTF Did we really need jiggle effects for pixel-art characters?


RAD Review

Contaminated

HIGH Charm and color abound.

LOW That death didn’t feel like my fault.

WTF I don’t trust a man that looks like Kylo Ren and weaponizes children.


Infected Shelter Preview

Currently Available In Early Access For PC

Zombies and side-scrolling brawlers seem like a perfect match, and Infected Shelter combines them into a gory, goofy roguelike. Players punch, throw, slash, and shoot their way through ruined city streets. Along the way they find assorted limited-use weapons to demolish the undead horde.


Tangledeep Review

Rolling In

HIGH Interesting classes, great customizability, rock-solid design.

LOW Catching pets is a drag, some difficulty spikes.

WTF I would have sworn it was ‘Veggiemancer’.


Genesis Alpha One Review

Deep Space Clonialism

HIGH The minimal HUD and use of terminals instead of menus.

LOW Explorable planets feel unbelievably empty.

WTF Everyone and everything is a literal clone, including the player.


Below Review

_________ Expectations

HIGH After all this time, it’s here!

LOW One-hit-kills from traps that are too tough to see.

WTF This feels more like an endurance test than a game.


Deep Sky Derelicts Review

Dungeon Crawling… Innnnnn spaaaaaace

HIGH Easy-to-pick-up deck building mechanics.

LOW The awkward user interface.

WTF Accidentally selecting the wrong enemy if they sway a single pixel into my cursor.
