The gameplay isn’t deep, the content isn’t even slightly politically-correct, and there aren’t enough levels. That said, Intensive Exposure is a stupidly-fun game that delivers exactly what it promises, with a few great surprise laughs along the way. Definitely worth it.

I have loved my time in Project Highrise, designing skyscrapers and keeping my buildings running smoothly, and that says a lot from someone who isn’t proficient at turning a profit and keeping things working orderly! If you’re a fan of simulation and strategy, not to mention the ability to create custom content and upload it into the Steam Workshop, then I highly recommend this title as a fantastic addition to your time-management library.

DOGOS is a great idea, a great prospect, but the execution is not as well implemented nor improved as it could have been. Hopefully OPQAM’s next venture into the multi-directional shooter will prove more fruitful. 

Calm Down, Stalin puts players in touch with history by allowing them to experience the sweaty-palmed, gut-wrenching stress of being a despotic ruler of a country on the brink of war. That you have the unfortunate handicap of only being able to control one clumsy, flailing arm at a time adds to the fun.

Given that World of Fishing is Free to Play, check it out. It's a relaxing way to pass some time, on top of its RPG elements that let you become bigger, better, stronger.

I want to recommend Maraiyum: Rise of the Setting Sun; I do. I was utterly charmed by the writing and the storytelling, but it is too repetitive, too frustrating, and too obtuse for me to tell you, go ahead and buy it.

It needs a lot more pizazz to be considered an attractive, interesting, smooth-running strategy title, otherwise it’s just another simulation that leaves players wanting a bigger, better picture. 

Zombie City Defense 2 does a lot of things but doesn’t quite know what it wants to be. It seems trapped between strategy and tower defense, and while a combination of the two sounds enticing, it just doesn’t have the dexterity to do both at the moment. It’s a fun concept when things make sense, but for now, it's still prone to bursts of enjoyment against waves of frustration.

If Tinder and the Bantam Choose Your Own Adventure book franchise got together for one passionate night of game development, the child of that union would be Reigns. A resource manager with an RPG flair, Reigns puts you on the throne of a dysfunctional medieval kingdom.

For two bucks, you can get a hot dog and a Slurpee at 7-11, or you could pick up Extreme Forklifting 2. Frankly, I think the dev has the talent to make the game actually extreme, and do some fun crazy stuff, but alas, I cannot give it a high score. Games shouldn’t get boring after five minutes.

I just can't emphasize how incredible ABZÛ looks.  The gorgeous trailers and screenshots online don't even do it justice; you just need to explore this ocean firsthand. A worthy purchase for anyone that can appreciate a beautiful, at-your-own-pace, exploration game.

Experience the hacker's side of cyberpunk in Cyber Sentinel! This design-based puzzle game features a complete visual programming kit for designing your own viruses.

Metamorphic has a great foundation for building something engaging and fun. I look forward to the dev coming back to this game and adding some of the sorely missed storyline context, and perhaps even a talking potato.

Dead Age is a must have for any RPG fan who has always hoped for a post-apocalyptic theme replete with realistic graphics and an awe-inspiring soundtrack.

The overall feeling I get from 90 Minute Fever is that the developers are nowhere near what could be accomplished. Of course, the game is in alpha at the moment, but the obfuscation of the details regarding mechanics, organization, and overall construction of the game menus bar it from getting a pass.

Doodle God is a game that offers a lot of value in the first twenty minutes of play.  Beyond that, the fun breaks down. The frustrating issues grow exponentially the further the player progresses until it reaches that deadly place where gaming becomes a chore.  Players who can walk away from a game if it stops being fun may enjoy Doodle God for its good qualities; however, completionist gamers who have to finish no matter what may want to give this one a pass.

If you’re looking for a hyper-realistic gokart racing simulator, then KartKraft is for you. Crash-em smash-em wild racing fan? Look elsewhere, because this is for the pros.

Extraordinarily put together and well thought out. This beta release captivates and draws you into its world. With further tweaks, this game will quickly become a staple in both RPG and Sci Fi enthusiasts alike.

If you want a good time killer with a heavy grinding aspect, Royal Heroes is perfect for you. It's fun growing an army from just a small band of troops to a huge, sizeable force. But it’s going to take some time to pull that off.

Gamy Tycoon 2 is a challenging learning experience in a subject that we all enjoy that poses as a game – what’s not to like? This title provides hours of entertainment for a good price, and for a game within a game, that’s a great value. Be patient with this title – it’s worth it!
