Phoebe Knight

Phoebe Knight

Phoebe Knight is a freelance writer and novelist. She cut her baby teeth on the original King’s Quest, and has loved gaming ever since. Phoebe’s favorite games are usually weird ones with quirky storylines, but she has also logged an embarrassing volume of hours in sweeping open-world fantasy games like Skyrim and Witcher 3.

Intensive Exposure Review

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.

Avadon 3: The Warborn Review

Avadon 3: The Warborn isn’t just a game. It is an investment into a world that has its own rules, lore, and struggles. It possesses depth, quality art, fantastic gameplay, and provides a profound experience beyond casual entertainment. 

Calm Down, Stalin Review

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.

Parvaneh: Legacy of the Light's Guardians Review

He lives in an idyllic village nestled between a crystal clear river and the tallest mountain peak in the land.

Genius Greedy Mouse Review

An addictively enjoyable puzzle game. The graphics will appeal to claymation fans, and the puzzles offer a nice challenge without being rage-inducingly frustrating.

Karma Miwa Review

It’s only significant flaw is the bug that causes the game to crash repeatedly.

Gazzel Quest, The Five Magic Stones Review

Gazzel Quest is not a game I would typically pick off the Steam shelf, but if I had given it a miss it would have been a loss. Despite its flaws, the artwork, and simple control scheme paired with the challenging gameplay and multiplayer option makes this title a win.

Doodle God Review

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.

Archibald's Adventures Review

While playing Archibald’s Adventures, I often found myself feeling like an idiot for missing an obvious solution, but that did not dampen the triumph when the answer revealed itself in a blinding moment of clarity. It’s a fun game. Challenging, but not rage-inducing. Overall, I liked it well enough that I’d purchase a squeal if it were available.
