Review: 2Dark

by Nazih Fareson March 17, 2017
Survival and horror are two terms associated to Frédérick Raynal back in his days at Infogrames, for a game known for its major influence of the video game genre: Alone in the Dark. Returning to business on his own with a small team and studio call Gloomywood, they give us an independent survival-horror game called 2Dark, which […]

Review: BOOR

by Febronia Armiaon March 11, 2017
BOOR is a puzzle oriented platformer, that seems to draw inspiration from games like Limbo and Ori & The Blind forest for its environment design and is reminiscent of some of games like Braid in terms of the mechanics. BOOR takes place on Eden, a colony for humans where things seem to be going alright until they […]

Review: Splasher

by Mazen Abdallahon February 13, 2017
Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: I absolutely love Rayman Origins. I think it’s probably the greatest platformer ever created. So when I find out that Rayman Origins level designer Claude Romain has made a new platformer, I’m definitely interested in checking it out. Hell, if I found out the guy that […]


Review: Beholder

by Mazen Abdallahon February 12, 2017
Beholder is, at its core, a game about spying. However, unlike most spy games, you don’t play a rugged special ops agent who must infiltrate an evil cabal of terrorists. You play a portly government landlord in a fictional totalitarian (fairly obviously Communist) state. The people you spy on are your tenants. As the game’s […]

Review: Sombrero

by Mazen Abdallahon January 19, 2017
I’ve always lamented the decline of couch gaming, as I believe it offers us something unique that online multiplayer can’t. While online multiplayer is definitely more convenient than assembling a group of 30-somethings with jobs and families, it lacks that personal touch that you get from dancing on the coffee table after beating your friends. […]

Gaming hipster moment right here: Who remembers Dreamcast? Dreamcast is one of the great tragedies of gaming, because it was such a cool little console but it failed so aggressively that it unceremoniously ended the hardware career of one of gaming’s giants. However, Dreamcast did bring us some unique and amazing games in our lifetime, […]

Review: Rogue Wizards

by Mazen Abdallahon November 20, 2016
Rogue Wizards definitely has a good title, implying it mixes magic and fantasy with fast-paced action. Indeed, Rogue Wizards is one of indie gaming’s classic genres: the timeless rogue-lite.  For those of you who aren’t in the know, that means you get a randomly generated dungeon with variations of enemies, loot, and other elements. And […]

Review: Ginger: Beyond the Crystal

by Muhammed Al Bukharyon November 17, 2016
Let’s admit it, as avid gamers we have all spent considerable amount of time working on imaginary settings, realms, characters and stories in our minds, we all dreamed to leave our marks in a world we lived and breathed in for two decades long, sadly the vast majority of us came short or even have […]


Review: Aragami

by Mazen Abdallahon November 10, 2016
Aragami is a stealth platformer in which you play as the titular Aragami, a supernatural being made of shadows. The game’s central mechanic involves teleporting between shadows and remaining undetected by staying in the dark. Of course, your shadow abilities (you later upgrade and get new skills) recharge when you’re in the dark, so staying […]
