Returnal Review

Into The Deep


HIGH Great premise, great controls, great graphics.

LOW The difficulty is brutal and inflexible.

WTF Why in the world is there no save function?!?


Orbital Bullet Preview

Orbital Bullet is a 2D platformer/roguelite title from SmokeStab studios. As the name might suggest, something that makes it noteworthy is the cylinder-like design of the levels. Players are equipped with different types of ranged weapons and they must clear each level to proceed and reach the boss.


Cardaclysm Review

Dark Power In Deckbuilding


HIGH Good combat mechanics and deck synergies

LOW The grind for the right cards.

WTF Trading an assassin and a dragon for… a leaf.
