Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Kirby gets the polygonal treatment but the third dimension is purely cosmetic. It plays just like the earlier games - which is no bad thing - and the special powers are varied and fun. Unfortunately the lack of any real challenge means there's not much in the way of longevity, but it's enjoyable while it lasts.

Knife Edge: Nose Gunner  Add to game list
Rating of: 2/5

Light gun/rail shooter hybrid that like all games of this type is very samey and shallow. Like its arcade counterparts, okay for a couple of credits but the novelty soon wears off.

Killer Instinct Gold  Add to game list
Rating of: 2.5/5

2D fighting game that's like Mortal Kombat with cheap plastic action figures. It's fast and fluid enough but the characters are lame and gameplay too often descends into random button-bashing. Not terrible, but there are much better fighting games out there.

Override: Mech City Brawl  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Let’s Get Ready to Stumble!

“Override: Mech City Brawl” (“Override”) is the first, last, and only effort from Brazilian Indie studio, The Balance, Inc. Shortly after the release of “Override” in 2018, the publisher for the game, Modus Games, purchased The Balance, Inc. and transformed it into Modus Games Brazil. As always, the MeltedJoystick Crew is perpetually on the lookout for unique cooperative gaming experi...

ActLowerer

In 2019, Sega surprised us all with the low-key release of a spiritual successor to one of the SNES’s launch titles, the Quintet-developed, Enix-published “ActRaiser.” This new game, developed by a Chilean work-for-hire studio called ACE Team could not be a true sequel, as Square-Enix still owns the original IP, and shortly after the release of the game in question, “SolSeraph,” the con...

ActRaiser  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Theology 101

“ActRaiser” was the inaugural game released in 1991, during the SNES’ launch window, even earning a coveted spot of product placement on the back of the console’s box. The developer, Quintet, was a small Japanese studio that started up in 1989, produced a small handful of memorable and unique Enix-published SNES titles in the ‘90s, before backing the wrong horse – the Saturn – in th...

Old West and RPG Tropes Makes for a Good Couple

It's always a gamble when you deal with Kickstarter. So many tales of vaporware, broken promises or just outright crooks have turned the once-promising landscape of supporting a hidden gem into a minefield of "buyer beware". Yet not every story ends in disappointment and Boot Hill Heroes (along with its sequel Boot Hill Bounties - and perhaps more titles in the future) is a shining example of wha...

Control  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Use It Before You Lose It

Remedy Entertainment has dipped their toe into a lot of genres but are known mainly for two major series: Alan Wake and Max Payne. Control is tangentially related to Wake's story (in fact an entire DLC is dedicated to this link) but owes most of its influence from the SCP Foundation - a community wiki that describes various paranormal, supernatural, and other mysterious phenomena that often take...

Monster Hunting for Fun and Profit

I've been a fan of Diablo and its loot and shoot hack n slash style of gameplay since my college days (re: long time ago) and anytime the crew decides to pick one of these top-down Diablo clones, I'm all for it, even if most turn out to be... lesser fun. Victor Vran is stuck right in the middle of the pack - not amazing but not a total waste, it definitely has its own style and flavor and even me...
