Equal parts charming and cheeky, Minit plays on a 60-second time mechanic that keeps you hotly anticipating every moment. Nostalgic black-and-white art and straightforward puzzles contribute to Minit’s unique simplicity — a simplicity which, ultimately, is both its strength and its final drawback.

Ultimately, Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back (Bubsy), the platforming game, arrives as the two-decades-too-late 5th entry in the series. Despite excellent controls, the title does not overcome some of its more pressing shortcomings, such as level design, resulting in a sub-par gaming experience.

Hob is made for gamers who love to explore, tinker, and problem-solve. Combat is present, but not as a central element. Gameplay consists, by a considerable margin more, of looking for ways to inventively raise, lower, move, open up, or interact with the environment. While, some puzzles are clumsy puzzles, each has a logical solution – though it reaching this point might require a temporal investment.
