Children of Morta Review

A beautifully written, composed, and visualized roguelike.

Conglomerate 451 Early Access Review

Conglomerate 451 is an Early Access title, and it shows. While I didn't encounter anything horribly game-breaking in the current build, many systems are not yet implemented and some balance issues should be addressed before the final release.

Vambrace: Cold Soul Review

A relentless roguelite with a solid foundation. Beautiful but grindy, it lacks a complex story, deep characters, and emotional impact.

Infected Shelter Early Access Review

Newcomers to the roguelite genre will certainly find some fun in Infected Shelter but I am not confident that experienced roguelite players will find much new or exciting with this title.

Book of Demons Review

This beautiful hack and slash is marred by boring combat.

BELOW Review

For those who enjoy exploring, BELOW is a great addition to your game library, especially for those who enjoy atmospheric elements.

Underworld Ascendant Review

Underworld Ascendant is surprisingly unpolished and actively difficult to play. Without patches addressing the myriad bugs present in the current product, this one is a hard pass.

The Bard's Tale Trilogy Review

High on challenge and low on graphics intensity, this old-school remaster is well worth a look for RPG fans who either haven’t experience this trilogy yet, or who want to experience it again.

Deep Sky Derelicts Review

Fatally flawed with bugs, soft locks, and incomplete map generation, Deep Sky Derelicts is a fun game when it works. More often than not, however, it doesn’t work.

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk Review

Not without faults (in the form of bugs, stuttering, some tedium, and a lack of in-game information), this dungeon crawler RPG nevertheless offers a ton of gameplay with rewarding mechanics.

The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep Review

A delightful blend of well-done modern and classic elements will appeal to many RPG enthusiasts, with the few impediments being less-than-stellar graphics, a few trivial bugs, and a world where — literally — not every door is open to you.

Shadows: Awakening Review

An interesting take on the isometric ARPG, Shadows: Awakening provides a short romp through the main campaign with three different endings providing some limited replayability.

Jade's Dungeon Descent Review

Smack enemies around by clicking wildly in Jade’s Dungeon Descent, a bite-sized unlockable dungeon-crawler that’s being offered separate from its original Shuyan Saga packaging.

Wizard of Legend Review

Wizard of Legend finally delivers the spellcasting combat that mage fanboys have been dreaming of, with fast-paced action and seamless bending of the elements.

Moonlighter Review

Combining the best of adventure and management, Moonlighter is an enjoyable title that is sure to make you smile and get you hooked right away.

Dungeon Stars Early Access

Beautiful visuals and frenzied button smashing are all that compensate for this title’s lack of progression, lack of variety in enemies, and lack of difficulty.

Lost in the Dungeon Review

The title offers a difficult and tedious challenge for those looking for one. Unfortunately, it isn’t founded on enough complexity to hold your interest for the long term. Lost In The Dungeon has shown its hand, and unfortunately, it doesn’t contain many strategy, polish, or uniqueness cards.

Monster Ranching & Co-op Farming in Re:Legend from Magnus Games

The massively successful Kickstarter campaign for Re:Legend, developed by indie studio Magnus Games, is a testament to the gaming community’s excitement over Magnus’s product: a co-op-capable mix of the most addictive elements from farming, monster raising, and dungeon crawling games. Rich, bright visuals alongside promises of a dynamic environment and mod support paint a bright future for the experience Magnus Games aims to deliver.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar Review

Battle Chasers: Nightwar combines the classic turn-based RPG with action-RPG elements. This fun twist to the traditional RPG divisions enhances gameplay, strategy, and character customization. Despite a slow start, this title surely becomes more engaging and a quick favorite for RPG enthusiasts.

Looterkings Goblinball Mode Review

Goblinball makes for a fantastic addition to the Looterkings package. A mischievous execution of a game everyone knows, it boasts fun and exciting characters and enemies in a natural and almost even cozy environment. The experience is perfectly complete in its simplicity, giving players a great way to spend anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, made even better when friends are added into the mix. The best part of Goblinball, however, is the fact that it’s entirely free as long as you’ve already picked up Looterkings, and really, there’s no excuse if you haven’t.
