7 / 10.0 - Neo Cab
Oct 16, 2019

Neo Cab asks a lot of interesting questions about precariousness, automation, social control through technology, data usage, and especially how to hold on to your humanity in a monopoly under unregulated capitalism. The execution of the game is questionable, but it can be worth it to give it a look for fans of narrative-focused experiences.

Untitled Goose Game is neither deep nor thought-provoking. But it's so, so, so fun, and that's enough for what it wants to be. House House proves, once again, that they can transform any unusual idea into a one-of-a-kind experience, funny from beginning to end.

6.5 / 10.0 - Creature in the Well
Sep 22, 2019

Creature in the Well is not memorable, but potentially really fun in parts. If you can ignore the repetition and monotony in some levels and let yourself dive into the game's captivating and beautifully-crafted atmosphere, it's possible to enjoy the experience.

9.5 / 10.0 - Children of Morta
Sep 17, 2019

When I began playing, I was not expecting anything different from other games of the genre. As the story progressed, however, both the gameplay and the smooth style of the game surprised me, ultimately leaving me considering it one of the best experiences released in the last few years.

Headliner: NoviNews has some good intentions and can be very good during some sections of gameplay, but an oversimplified political system and lacklustre art and sound directions prevent the game from fulfilling its full potential. Having said that, it can still be a good entry point for people who want to get into the world of politics in a more meaningful way.

9 / 10.0 - Slay The Spire
Jul 20, 2019

Slay the Spire is one of the most fun and refined games released this year, be it in its game mechanics, its strategy elements, its choice possibilities or its soundtrack. That's why its lacklustre art direction surprises me so much.

7 / 10.0 - Baba Is You
Jul 2, 2019

Baba is You has very high peaks, especially in the early stages and in the introduction of new rules, but its lows are terrible. Trying to be extremely difficult, it ends up with a bad, frustrating, and stale level design. The game seems to have forgotten that less is usually more.

Being an RPG fan, I particularly enjoyed 6 Eyes Studios' creation, since, like every good game in the genre, it offers its own combat system and a well-elaborated story. If you like a good story and the kind of gameplay proportioned by RPGs, Fell Seal would be a great addition to your game library.

7.5 / 10.0 - Zombotron
Apr 27, 2019

Zombotron is interesting and noteworthy, but the repetition makes the game tiring. For those that don't have the patience to repeat the same level, again and again, the alternative is to get good or get out.

8.5 / 10.0 - Degrees of Separation
Mar 8, 2019

At the end of the day the game is very polished, including an innovative and creative gameplay mechanic, but requiring a bit of patience to get to the end, impacting how much I wanted to play it. If you like "light" games with nice graphics and don't care too much about repetition, Degrees of Separation will satisfy your needs.
