Odallus: The Dark Call Review

Odallus may look like an NES game, but it plays and handles progression like contemporary titles, respecting the player’s time and offering numerous secrets in an exploration-based 2D world. I went into Odallus: The Dark Call looking for Castlevania and left with an engaging experience that pays tribute to both classic 8-bit titles and modern Metroidvania games.

Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered

The game does manage to get some things right, but only the very basic of mechanics which are overshadowed by the bigger cogs in the machine. It sounds mediocre, and it looks decent, but what really makes this game genre shine is the element of challenging yourself with a good puzzle or two; this game just does not have that. Anyone can make basic strings of words and improve their character with a simplified upgrade system, and that makes this game terribly boring and unbelievably annoying.
