234330_screenshots_2013-12-05_00002

The original Puzzle Quest brought some much-needed depth to the puzzle genre. Players could assume the role of specific characters with specific skills and attributes, adding strategy to each battle. Puzzles were tied together via a story and map screens, with loot and stats for those who wanted it. The game was a hit, managing …

Review of Avadon 2: The Corruption

[rating=2] Avadon 2: The Corruption is a lot like Avadon 1. Much in the same way most Spiderweb Software titles are very similar to other Spiderweb titles. You’ll be fighting the exact same enemies (in appearance and action) you’ve fought before, exploring areas that you’ve seen and explored before, and opening chests you’ve seen before …

Review of Deadfall Adventures

They tried to make the video game equivalent of Raiders of the Lost Ark but ended up with a less entertaining version of The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Review of The Inner World

251430_screenshots_2013-10-07_00006

[rating=5] It seems like Europe is the place to go for point-and-click games lately. From Daedalic’s awesome Deponia series, to newer entries like The Journey Down, Europe has been keeping the genre alive in both quantity and quality. Studio Fizbin looks to keep this trend going with their game, The Inner World. They’ve done their …

Review of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

0x600 (2)

[rating=2] Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a walking around simulator. A cute, sometimes pleasant, sometimes touching, walking around simulator. You control two brothers on a quest to get some medicine for their father. Along the way you encounter nothing even slightly resembling a challenge. In fact you barely encounter anything resembling a game. …

Review of Divinity: Dragon Commander

You may ask “why does a winged dragon would need a jetpack?”

All I have to say to that is why do you hate freedom so much?

Review of Papers, Please

[rating=4] I like to think of Papers, Please as sort of the evil twin to Diner Dash, a workplace simulator all about completing a bunch of minor yet increasingly complex tasks as fast as you can and in the right order, though Papers has a dark yet very human bent to it. At no point …

Review of Toki Tori 2

[rating=4] Toki Tori 2 has one of the most physically underwhelming video game heroes of all time. You’re in control of a rare breed of bird that doesn’t seem to mature past the excessively cute, fuzz-ball chick stage of the chicken life cycle. The sum total of your abilities are; stamping your cute little chicken …

Review of Shadowrun Returns

[rating=3] There’s got to be no license worse to develop for than that of a pen-and-paper RPG; it’s a medium dependent on infinitely fluid story lines and adapting to whatever the player can imagine. Such flexibility isn’t always a match for cold harsh video game code and as a result the spirit of such games …
