Going Under Review

Working Harder AND Smarter

HIGH A colorful, hilarious roguelike parody of startup culture.

LOW  The framerate can be rough, especially in later dungeons.

WTF I really need a job.


Undermine Review

Going Deeper

HIGH It’s got that ‘just one more go’ quality.

LOW The slow-burn first boss.

WTF The soundtrack sounds like synth System of a Down.


Hades Review

Zag Out Of Hell

HIGH Zeus’ chain-lightning boons.

LOW The fourth biome is less interesting than the preceding three.

WTF Surely I’ll hit repeat dialogue eventually, right…?


Neon Abyss Review

Neon Gods

HIGH Blasting through gods like they’re nothing.

LOW The game has more content than playtime.

WTF Nothing for something is too often an outcome.


Rogue Legacy 2 Preview

The original Rogue Legacy was a masterpiece of super-tight movement, great combat and incredibly balanced enemy design. Every moment was a pleasure to play, and for me that was quite a few moments since I played the game from beginning to end five times.


Nowhere Prophet Review

Guiding Light

HIGH Intricate, polished systems. Excellent style and worldbuilding.

LOW Enemies whose troops abuse the “Taunt” ability.

WTF Why are Slay the Spire and Monster Train fans not talking about this?
