Gato Roboto Review

Although Gato Roboto does not provide the type of sprawling world design that Metroidvania titles are known for, it still does a decent job at reducing this type of experience into a condensed form. The abbreviated process of upgrading Kiki’s mech suit is a satisfying sprint that takes you from helplessness to empowerment at a rapid pace.

The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human Review

Have you ever come home after a few months away and noticed that your favorite burrito shop has folded? Okay, now multiply that feeling by roughly eighty trillion. That’s how the unseen, nameless protagonist must feel in The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human, developer YCJY’s flagship release.

Sundered Review

The game rewards the time spent on it, and the more you put into it, the more awesome it gets. Just like Eshe, who in the beginning is a mere shadow of the lean, mean killing machine she’s to become. To me, she is the Starkiller that never was and the caverns are her proving grounds.

Song of the Deep

What isn’t there to love about Song of the Deep? Insomniac Games brings out the best of the retro golden age and blends it perfectly into a new and modern package for everyone to enjoy.

Strider

I had a great time with Strider in the beginning, but that satisfaction went on a steady and disappointing decline from the start. There's a great-looking game with some compelling exploration elements here, albeit a flawed one that almost always plays against those strengths in favour of more flat combat. The Metroid-style design could be a great fit for Strider, but this first outing comes up a little lacking.
