The Deep Paths: Labyrinth of Andokost  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Breathtakingly Average

“The Deep Paths: Labyrinth of Andokost” (“LoA”) is the second PC game by Steve Jarman, an Australian Indie developer who started as an iOS app developer, and whose team of assistants seems to grow smaller and smaller with each game. “LoA” is also the 2016 sequel to “Coldfire Keep,” a 2014 retro-style Dungeon Crawler that attempted to cash in on the renewed interest in the subgenre...

The Vagrant  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Chinese Knock-Offs are Getting Better

“The Vagrant” is the 2017 inaugural release by O.T.K. Games (not to be confused with One True King, an association of Twitch streamers that uses the same acronym), a small Indie studio consisting of three Chinese guys, Wang, Rong, and Liu, who actually started working together in 2014, with an unsuccessful Kickstarter crowdsourcing event. When I saw initial footage and screens of “The Vagra...

Avadon: The Black Fortress  Add to game list
Rating of: 2/5

The ‘Blah’ Fortress

“Avadon: The Black Fortress” (“Avadon”) is the first game in the third series by married-couple-Indie-developer, Spiderweb Software. Spiderweb has been around since the early 1990s, and prior to the release of “Avadon,” the studio was responsible for the long-running ‘Avernum’ and ‘Geneforge’ series. One thing that all of Spiderweb’s many games have in common is the fact tha...

A compilation of the first four Contra games in their various incarnations including arcade, NES, Super NES, Megadrive and Gameboy as well as the Japanese versions of same.

Metal Slug 3  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

The most enjoyable instalment of the long running series with plenty of variety and loads of ideas. One of the best run'n'gunners you can buy.

Strange Brigade  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Raucus, Rip-Roaring Adventure Time

While not every pick I have provided has been an unmitigated success, I have to say that I think Strange Brigade is probably one of my better choices. It's one of those games that probably went under the radar for many people and that's too bad as Strange Brigade is more than solid - it's a lot of fun and Rebellion should be proud of the result. Granted, you have to have some enjoyment of pulpy a...

Satellite Reign  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

A Hard Reigns Gonna Fall

When it comes to co-op games, our group is open to anything that looks even remotely promising. Often this means playing trusted series (like Borderlands) or something that has an established fan base (like Stardew Valley) or something in a genre we have enjoyed in the past (like Victor Vran) and sometimes it means taking a chance on something like... Satellite Reign. In fact, I believe this game...

Assault Rigs  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Tank-based puzzle/shoot 'em up hybrid set in a Tron-like virtual world. It would've benefited from sturdier physics (the tanks feel a little rubbery) and the sound design is rather dated, but as the levels get more complex and devious, the better it gets. Never one of the top notch PS1 titles, but a decent enough diversion.

Watch Dogs 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Big Brother 2.0 is Still Watching

Confession time - as of this review, I have still not played the original Watch Dogs even though I've had it and it is part of my backlogs resolution for 2020 as I have now barely a month to go. The original was received well enough but, by all accounts, this sequel surpassed it in every way. Plus, because the story only tangentially references the first game, it's not necessary to play the first...

Dead Cells  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Rogue-Like Done Right

Dead Cells is a rogue-like game that is done right and well and provides excellent game play and replayability.

The simplest way to describe Dead Cells is simply that it's a metroidvania that has rogue-like elements that uses retro graphics. But, there's so much to this game than that. All of those elements are woven together so well that the game keeps you coming back for more long after ...
