Sailaway: The Sailing Simulator Review
I’ve always wanted to sail off in a boat. Sailaway: The Sailing Simulator takes sailing towards a realistic approach and is one step closer to me living out my sailing aspirations. I was eager to play the game due to my positive memories of sailing the seas in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in search of adventure. The game requires a lot of effort to fully grasp its systems. In a way, it’s exactly what it says on the tin as it is a sailing simulator through and through.
Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds Review
Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds by Semisoft has been on my radar since I first saw it announced around 2016. Marketing itself as a love-letter to the Golden Age JRPGs, the game made a dynamic entry to the indie scene with its excellent hand-drawn graphics and charming character art
Skylar and Plux: Adventure on Clover Island Review
The game may be guilty of relying on that sense too much, forcing you to look the other way at everything that it is missing or does wrong. Gamers who require more robust gameplay mechanics or more collectibles may find themselves underwhelmed by Skylar and Plux. They should still be able to appreciate the effort though, if not the result.
The Marvellous Miss Take
The Marvellous Miss Take is a fun and near flawless heist adventure. The visuals, soundtrack and simple controls are the healthiest elements of the game. The only thing holding it back is the game’s often crippling difficulty and the feeling of being put up against impossible odds. You’ll bang your head against the wall a few times but the real key to success is to not play angry. A measured approach and a careful step are needed to guide Sofia Take towards artwork yearning to be free.
Beat Blasters III
Beat Blasters III boasts 16 levels that range from "decent" to "really good". Outside of upgrades to your blaster, the game introduces no new game mechanics after the tutorial. That it can stay entertaining as long as it does with its three simple powers says volumes about how thoughtfully the game was designed. It probably isn’t fair to classify Beat Blasters III as a “music game”, but rather a quality action game that thrives on music. If this sounds like something that you would like to experience, then you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
