Happy Room Review

Every once in a while a person needs to blow off some steam after a long day’s work. Happy Room is the perfect stress reliever for these types of situations with its violent, sandbox-style gameplay. Developed by Mana Potion Studios, the game provides an infinite queue of ragdoll test dummies to dismember, torture, and experiment...

Aggelos Is Coming to Consoles

A new, retro-style action-RPG that was previously published on Steam in June this year, is now coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Aggelos is a Metroidvania adventure “that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 16-bit era, but plays like a modern-day marvel”. No one would have any doubts that the game was...

Golf Peaks Review

Golf Peaks could easily be mistaken for a skill-based miniature golfing game. At a glance, it appears the player must carefully guide a golf ball around a floating island course without falling off. However, Golf Peaks is actually a tile-based puzzle game that requires a sharp mind rather than golfing skill. A unique card-based movement...

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...

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. Before you start thinking of a game that sounds just like this, you don’t play as a human here...

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...
