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.

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.

Music conveys a sense of fast-paced mysticism which is completely appropriate to the gameplay. There is a story, and...

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...

In Your Realm Review

The overall presentation of In Your Realm is, initially, pretty engaging. There is a haunted dream sort of feel that sets in from the opening cinematic as music draws you in and captions explain the game’s pretense. It’s described that the player character is going to enter their own mind and battle whatever they find....

OneShift Review

OneShift is a puzzle platformer developed by Mazen Games. This new indie developer made its debut early this year with AtmaSphere, a “roll-a-ball” game, and is already back with its second release. Like many of the smaller indie games you find on Steam, OneShift takes its target genre and adds to it with one feature or concept from...
