Kunai Review 4

Kunai Review

 |  Preston Dozsa
The greatest joy in Kunai comes from mastering momentum. With two kunai in hand, you’ll swing from platforms and climb countless walls while moving with an energy that is as challenging as it is thrilling. It’s that speed that carries Kunai forward, even when its design slows it down far too often for my liking. […]

 |  Lane Martin
Look, Rogue was a perfectly fun game. It was revolutionary for its time and it’s amazing how long the concepts it introduced have endured.
The Adventure Pals (Switch) Review 3

The Adventure Pals (Switch) Review

 |  Joel Couture
The Adventure Pals is straight up silly and adorable. Clobbering evil trees while using a giraffe’s tongue to glide around, scoring hits by throwing your best rock pal at monsters that fart and explode when they fly away. It’s pure, cute, lighthearted fun. The game’s visual charm and sense of humour, however, do start to […]

Ultimate Chicken Horse (PS4) Review: Frenetic Multiplayer Craziness!

 |  Adam Chapman
Ultimate Chicken Horse for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is a new release, but the original version of the game made its debut for PC over a year and a half ago. For this reviewer, playing this game was my first interaction with the title, and my first time experiencing the frenetic gameplay therein. First […]
Celeste (Pc) Review: A Dashing Platformer

Celeste (PC) Review: a Dashing Platformer

 |  Chris Carter
Sometimes, it’s enough to just play a retro-tinted game or a plain old platformer that merely plays well. What do I mean by that? Well, I don’t really have a stringent requirement for an over-arching narrative that’s going to blow me away all the time. Recent 3D Mario games are proof of that, as Nintendo […]
Super Meat Boy (Switch) Review: Immaculate Death 5

Super Meat Boy (Switch) Review: Immaculate Death

 |  Joel Couture
Super Meat Boy—even eight years later—is still capable of getting players to hurl a controller in frustration at its carefully designed platforming deathtraps. Except the controller is now an entire console. So, not only is Super Meat Boy an excellent platformer, it also teaches the player an important lesson about restraint. Not much has changed […]
Guacamelee 2 Is The Same Dish With A Few New Ingredients

Guacamelee 2 is The Same Dish With a Few New Ingredients

 |  Mike Cosimano
Guacamelee 2 is a hard game to demo. At PSX, I played one of the opening levels with three other attendees through the game’s appropriately chaotic four-player co-op. That’s probably not how I will play Guacamelee 2, if I play it at all, so I was predominantly looking to see if the first game’s cheerful […]

 |  Jed Whitaker
RiME is the touching tale of a boy that wakes up on a beach with no clear recognition of how he got there. He sets off on a journey that has him following a friendly fox and a mysterious figure in a red cloak through ruins, towers, and even under water all while solving puzzles […]
