PLATFORMER

Vane Review

Like all games that stress art and atmosphere above all else, appraising Vane is difficult. Some will fall in love with it from the first scene, simply because they appreciate its visual style and engaging music. For me, it’s the game equivalent of tuning in to the fireplace channel on Christmas day. It’s oddly pleasant in its own way, but there’s little substance to it.

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity Review

Scarlet Curiosity is the video game equivalent of comfort food. It is an experience with little substance, but I still wholeheartedly enjoyed it.

Castle of Heart Review

A journey isn’t complete without the adventure, and it’s the environment that shines brightest in Castle of Heart. Utilizing smart design choices, the land is traversed as a side-scroller platformer. You move the knight through the landscapes, jumping up and over obstacles both big and small. In sections such as sliding down roofs and leaping or ducking to avoid spikes, timing becomes often key. Other times hindrances, like giant logs of thorny death, require a diving roll to duck under.

Hidden Dragon Legend Review

Hidden Dragon Legend, is fresh on the PlayStation Store, waiting to take up a mercifully small 3.5 GB on the rapidly-clogging HDDs of PS4 owners everywhere.
