8 / 10.0 - Arms
Sep 19, 2017

ARMS is a game that, despite looking simple, can get deeper as the player continues to play. With its well-executed technical and artistic aspects and a surprisingly responsive motion controls system, it's an essential game for any Switch-owner.

8.5 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Oct 8, 2017

Cuphead has an impressive art style and is challenging in the right way, offering satisfactory rewards after each stage. In spite of some unfortunate issues, it's still very much recommended, especially considering its current price.

10 / 10.0 - Super Mario Odyssey
Oct 27, 2017

Super Mario Odyssey is not just the pinnacle of the Super Mario franchise, but the pinnacle of 3D platformers in general. Great in its gameplay, design, and soundtrack, it's essential to any player.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is an unfortunate attempt at reviving a franchise that should have stayed dead. Every single aspect of the game is repetitive and tasteless, what leads me to believe that this game was made from corporate thinking.

9.5 / 10.0 - Stardew Valley
Dec 10, 2017

Stardew Valley is an extremely relaxing and fun game. The variety of activities to perform keeps the player glued to the screen and turns this into one of the most addictive games of the last years. It deserves to be played by anyone with access to it.

6 / 10.0 - Clustertruck
Jul 13, 2018

Clustertruck starts well and promising, but the level of fun starts to drop as the stages go by, reaching a point where it becomes more irritating than fun. The premise, however, is interesting, and it's possible to get a better enjoyment of the game playing it in small sessions.

10 / 10.0 - Into The Breach
Aug 27, 2018

Much more than a turn-based strategy game, than a sci-fi game or than just any other indie game, Into the Breach is a masterpiece. Challenging without being unfair, complex without being overwhelming and familiar without being cliché, it's perfectly balanced to provide a unique experience.

5.5 / 10.0 - Broforce
Sep 4, 2018

Broforce is a very well-made action comedy game at first, besides being a great homage to the classic movie heroes. It's so long and repetitive, though, that the player's happiness slowly fades away, leaving behind an expression of frustration and weariness.

9 / 10.0 - Iconoclasts
Sep 12, 2018

Iconoclasts is a game that, having its story as the main focus, deals with subjects such as faith, oppression, exploration of other peoples and prejudice. Beyond that, it succeeds in the technical aspects, despite some weird design choices. Joakim Sandberg is to be congratulated for, alone, being able to create one of the best games of the year.

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.
