Curious Expedition Review

Robbing Indigenous People For Fame And Profit

HIGH A fresh roguelike take that veers away from fast action.

LOW Forgetting the ‘examine’ function mapped to Y existed.

WTF Trying to finish the final map.


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’.
