Dungelot is an enjoyable roguelike that can provide a challenge to players of almost any skill level without becoming frustrating.  The twisted humor tinyBuild is known for combined with addictive easy to pick up, difficult to master gameplay makes this title a worthwhile addition to any roguelike fan's library, especially ones with a penchant for puzzle games such as Minesweeper.

3.5 / 5.0 - Catlateral Damage
Mar 22, 2016

Overall Catlateral Damage is a simple but fun game.  Random events and the procedurally generated levels do help keep the experience fresh, as do the collectible cat photos.  The easy to pick up gameplay makes this a title that can appeal to anyone.  Cat lovers in particular are likely to get more enjoyment from stepping into the paws in this cat simulator and hunting down the various cat pictures than those who do not enjoy feline companionship.

3.5 / 5.0 - Unepic
Apr 5, 2016

Unepic is an enjoyable retro style action RPG. It has not gotten the attention or acclaim of some more recent retro style 2D platformers such as Axiom Verge or Shovel Knight, but fans of that style of gameplay should give this one a look. It doesn't reinvent the Metroidvania style of game, but the developer is obviously a fan of the format and the effort in creating a quality game to pay homage to old school games is apparent.
