The whole game feels fairly modest, but it punches above its weight to deliver something very different.

7 / 10 - Roundguard

The only real downside is that there's not more to it.

This is a hidden object puzzler that does exactly what it says on the tin, and you can't argue with that.

10 / 10 - Dreams
Feb 12, 2020

It may have taken the better part of a decade to make, but the arrival of Dreams feels significant. It represents a whole new way for people to make things and share them with the world. Media Molecule has made a suite of tools that feels intuitive to use, but more than that, it's built a social platform where players can collaborate and explore the imaginations of others. It's a technical marvel, a creative miracle, and one of the most innovative games in years.

6 / 10 - 7th Sector
Feb 5, 2020

If you're into this brand of weird, wordless narrative adventures, it could be worth wiring up to 7th Sector.

Patapon 2 Remastered makes it easy to fall in love with those adorable eyeball creatures all over again. It follows in the footsteps of the first game's PS4 revival, and in doing so it repeats all the highs and lows. You'll struggle to find a gameplay experience as unique as this, and it remains an addictive time sink, but somewhat obtuse design and hectic battles can easily throw you off. It has its flaws, but it's an eccentric and charming game that will eventually have you dancing to its rhythm.

It might lack some polish, but Journey to the Savage Planet is an enjoyable jaunt across a strange, open-ended landscape. This is a game you play in order to explore its intriguing environment and interact with the wildlife -- combat is fairly dull, attempts at humour rarely land, and the story almost feels like an afterthought at times. If you're looking for an easy-going sci-fi action game, this just about does enough to satisfy.

8 / 10 - Flat Heroes

If you've ever enjoyed the likes of Super Meat Boy or N++, it's worth giving this stylish action title a try.
