Volcanoids Early Access Review

With more things to do around the map, clear guidance through the storyline and quests, and perhaps a more comprehensive tutorial, Volcanoids could turn out to be a star on the stage of survival titles.

Generation Zero Review

An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, full of beautiful vistas and a streamlined interface. Moments of awe are punctuated with run-ins with the buggy and inconsistent AI.

Override: Mech City Brawl Review

Override is an interesting take on the fighting genre. Sadly, what it has in imagination it lacks in mechanical depth.

The Light Keeps Us Safe Early Access Review

There are needed tweaks to make, but setting those aside, The Light Keeps Us Safe is an enjoyable, suspenseful experience just short of being a horror game. Though, eeriness is pervasive due to the dark atmosphere and audio. If you enjoy atmospheric titles that are suspenseful, you should check this out; I look forward to seeing how this game’s development goes.

Ice Caves of Europa Review

Ice Caves of Europa is a simple, enchantingly atmospheric side-scroller with gameplay that is often frustrating and tedious.

Odysseus Kosmos and his Robot Quest Review

Odysseus Kosmos and his Robot Quest is a charming title and a solid first entry into an episodic series. The old school pixel graphics and humorous banter give the game a human touch, while it gets hurts by dialogue that feels long winded at times. As a narrative-driven point-and-click the story is paramount, and while the puzzles are interesting there isn’t much character development or narrative so far. Just enough to keep you hanging on for further episodes.

Steamburg: Telehorse's Steampunk Universe

Microïds Indie, the new publishing label of Microïds, and the studio Telehorse are thrilled to present the award-winning puzzle adventure game Steamburg, available since November 2nd on Steam.

Project Nimbus Review

Project Nimbus has a somewhat anticlimactic ending, but that’s only because the climax revealed in Early Access set the bar so high, both in terms of gameplay and story. Those awaiting this title’s full release after playing the Early Access might feel a little ripped off, but they might also realize just how great this experience is a second time through. Impressive mech combat that never grows old and interesting story elements equate to an impressive win for this small indie developer.

Lil Tanks Review

Lil Tanks is a solid title, providing four distinct game modes, twenty unique types of enemies, four tank variants, and multiple power-ups and weapon upgrades. The gameplay is uncomplicated and offers an enjoyable experience. However, it lacks any form of customization, and it might become repetitive after a few hours. Lil Tanks succeeds as a side-scrolling shooter, but there is a scarcity of originality in the game. That said, genre enthusiasts should certainly be entertained, especially at its current price point.

Scrap Garden Review

While lacking in difficulty, the title is a solid play that anyone can enjoy. It’s simple enough for anyone to appreciate, but only those who pay attention will ever truly understand.

CASE Animatronics Review

Due to its similarity to Five Nights at Freddy's, CASE Animatronics has put itself in the position of having some big shoes to fill. Although it has some rough edges, it more than delivers. For ten bucks, I think it's well-worth seeing the surprises CASE: Animatronics has in store. Last Level: please don't eat me anymore.

HeartandSlash Review

A piece of art that you can play, with fantastic music, storyline, and plenty of opportunities to make you chuckle, you'll want to play Heart&Slash time and time again, and that’s definitely worth a gold star in the game world.
