Beat Hazard 2 Review

There are many beat-based games available today, from the classic but still fully supported osu! to the extremely new and popular virtual reality game Beat Saber. Both previously said games fail at one thing: automatically creating a level or difficulty solely based on the song itself. Beat Hazard 2 does just that without any human input. Beat Hazard...

Monkey King: Master of the Clouds Review

Originally a Japanese arcade hit in the 90’s, Monkey King: Master of the Clouds has been ported to a number of classic consoles over the years as Cloud Master, and most recently the modern Nintendo Switch.

Entangled Review

Entangled by MentaLoop Games is a 2D physics puzzler. You play as an experiment held in a testing facility and your goal is to make your way through the trials of an A.I. entity who watches your progress.

Tribal Pass Review

Imagine you’re guiding a group of people from “Point A” to “Point B” with a ton of lethal obstacles in-between, not knowing what lies ahead, all while gradually running out of food. The Oregon Trail immediately comes to mind, a difficult traveling simulator many of us are familiar with. In Tribal Pass you’re put into...

Gift of Parthax Review

Gift of Parthax is a top-down spell based arena shooter and a very competent one at that. The presentation is fairly simple, owing to the low-resolution pixel art and simple premise, but it is executed well. Music conveys a sense of fast-paced mysticism which is completely appropriate to the gameplay. There is a story, and...

Kick Ass Commandos Review

When I first entered the world of Kick Ass Commandos, all I wanted to see were some explosions. Well, I can definitively say my wish came true. Before the Kick Ass Commandos experience I’d never seen so many explosions at once in my life. It seems like action games are continuously one-upping each other for...

Molecats Review

Upon first glance, Molecats looks like a children’s storybook turned video game. Its whimsical world is home to strange-looking creatures called Molecats, who enjoy exploring and collecting random household items. Much like Lemmings, they mindlessly walk in a straight line and react to their environment in various ways. As the player, your job is to...
