7 / 10.0 - The Adventure Pals
Nov 30, 2018

Despite being technically competent, The Adventure Pals alas becomes forgettable because of the lack of ambition from the developers. Because of the fear of making mistakes, Massive Monster played it safe, dooming the game to mediocrity. It can still be a fun pastime, though, especially if played with a friend.

6 / 10.0 - Minit
Nov 11, 2018

Too short to be memorable, Minit is painfully average. Its attempt at innovating fails, as well as its art direction, but fortunately it can still grant a few moments of fun on an uneventful evening, especially if you're a speedrun enthusiast.

9.5 / 10.0 - Gorogoa
Oct 28, 2018

It's impossible to describe Gorogoa in words. All the sentimentality and complete harmony in all of its elements, together with an innovative gameplay, make this a unique game that will hardly be replicated.

2.5 / 10.0 - Anamorphine
Oct 25, 2018

Anamorphine, despite having a good idea in hand, suffers from an excessive sloppiness in its execution and ends up becoming a highly flawed experience that doesn't engage emotionally.

9.5 / 10.0 - Dead Cells
Oct 16, 2018

Dead Cells mixes elements from two different genres that are starting to oversaturate to create its own genre: the roguevania, offering refreshing originality. All of its very well-executed aspects create an experience like no other.

7.5 / 10.0 - CHUCHEL
Oct 7, 2018

In a world full of issues, CHUCHEL feels like a recomforting hug with its childish and innocent atmosphere. It has various patent problems, however, and doesn't even get close to the level of quality of previous Amanita Design games.

8.5 / 10.0 - Donut County
Oct 2, 2018

Donut County is a very pleasant and fun experience, that was undoubtedly a labour of love from its creator. Some flaws, though, prevent it from being an excellent game.

6 / 10.0 - Shape of the World
Oct 1, 2018

I notice a lot of lost potential here, be it a potential to expand this lovely world, or a potential to add compelling gameplay elements. Shape of the World is, ultimately, a pretty shell: gorgeous on the outside, but hollow on the inside.

6.5 / 10.0 - 60 Parsecs!
Sep 25, 2018

With a gameplay style very similar to its predecessor - but very much improved -, 60 Parsecs! can be fun, but lacks variety right on its most prominent aspect: the plot.

Childhood is maybe the most important stage of our lives. Still, it's the stage we face with the most tranquility. The simplicity with which The Gardens Between talks about friendships and childhood touched me, making me remember and reflect. Playing this game is like reliving these memories, even if for a short period of time. Despite being far from a perfect game, it's an experience I think everyone should have.
