Knights of Pen & Paper 2: Deluxiest Edition Review
Overall, Knights of Pen & Paper 2 is a light-hearted turn-based RPG with some novel concepts attached to it. Still, the magic wears thin pretty fast as there is not much strategy and variation involved in the combat, while side quests are mostly glorified fetch jobs.
Wild Guns Reloaded Review
Arcade shooters were a gaming staple in the 90s; everywhere you looked and every game you played featured some kind of heavy bullet action with detailed sprites that were unthinkable before the 16-bit era. Wild Guns is a true product of the ever-popular genre that was seemingly synonymous with video games at the time. It was what every kid wanted; a space-western with the goal to shoot all bad guys that crossed your way.
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
Crossing Souls Review
It’s 1986 and the summer vacation has just started in a small town of Tajinga, somewhere in the conceptual North America. Teenage boy Chris is eager to meet up with his friends and spend the sunny days equally frolicking and slacking. There’s a change in the plans when his kid brother Kevin informs him via walkie-talkie that he has found something super exciting that Chris & co. must immediately see.
Nighthaw-X3000’s primary flaw is the lack of innovative or revolutionary design with its core gameplay, with levels that do little that stand out. It also could’ve been a little longer, having only eight levels that last a few minutes each. Having said that, the presentation is astounding, the music is awesome, the main hero is over-the-top in a very amusing way, and the bosses are incredibly fun to fight. Add in its low cost and co-op, it’s hard to not recommend. Retro-gaming and shmup fans alike should consider giving this a try.
