Shio Review

Shio, developed by Coconut Island Games, is the latest entry to the already crowded platforming genre. The game features well-designed levels that will test your dexterity and a far too ambiguous story that will test your patience as you try to piece it together. While it doesn't achieve the level of great 2D platformers. like Ori and the Blind Forest or Super Meat Boy, Shio has its own unique charm to keep players hooked.

Solo Review

Solo isn't a walking simulator. Ironically though, it is a great example of why our hobby doesn't need walking simulators. These games rest upon the premise that gameplay need not accompany story, or the idea that removing gameplay is the only way to get the most out of video games as a storytelling medium. I have never bought into this notion that games have to feature either story or gameplay and that you can't have both at the same time. Solo is the latest game (and definitely not the first) to demonstrate exactly why I feel that way.
