Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past Review

Queen’s Quest 2 is a perfect game for adventure games newbies. It’s colorful to look at and there are lots of neat details in its numerous pretty screens that effectively depict the game’s derivative fantasy kingdom.

The Room Review

And The Room is an incredible game, make no doubt about it. Nothing to do with the Tommy Wiseau movie, it’s a game that launched on iOS that presented you with a simple goal: there’s a puzzle box on the table. Solve the puzzle box - the only clues you need for it are included within the box itself. You don’t need outside knowledge or anything from the last puzzle, you just need to attack this one box in the right order.

Master of Anima Review

Master of Anima from Passtech Games takes the strategic micro-management aspect from RTS (Real-Time Strategy) games and mixes it with the exploration and puzzle-solving elements from the adventure genre to make one fresh adventure-RTS hybrid. The individual designs of the game may not be entirely original, but the synergy between various gameplay elements is rather remarkable.

Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut (Switch) Review

Slayaway Camp goes the other way, wrapping a puzzle game with horror elements. While the game's developers were clearly well-versed in the movies they're picking for reference, it becomes more a parodic window dressing than the main focus, far more lighthearted and comical instead.

Toki Tori 2+ Review

When Toki Tori 2+ started, I was pretty taken aback at how simple it seemed. This was a game that came out on the WiiU a few years back to very high review scores, so I was shocked that there didn't seem to be much to it. But every step of the way, the game delighted me with something new. When I beat the first level and it revealed the full map of the game, I realized there was much, much more to it than I expected.

Eventide 2: The Sorcerer's Mirror Review

Artifex Mundi is here to deliver even more logic puzzles and hidden object scenes, but is this title a worthy entry in the series or is the magic fading?

Lara Croft Go Review

It'll be really cool to see if Square Enix does this concept with other franchises of theirs because the work they've done with the Go series has been excellent so far. If you're opposed to playing games on phones, then now's the perfect time to grab it and give it a try.

Armikrog

As good as the art and music is, there isn't anything that can save a game like this from being any more than mediocre.
