Review: Namco Museum for Nintendo Switch

by Nazih Fareson August 4, 2017
If you are into retro gaming, Namco Museum is a compilation series that most of you know since the good old days of the original PlayStation. Since 1995’s first Namco Museum game, pretty much every single console got their own Namco Museum game, so it makes sense to see the Nintendo Switch have its version […]

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

by Nazih Fareson June 17, 2017
For someone who played the old original game on the Game Boy Color, it’s always a pleasure to see the return of Shantae, the action and platform series from independent American publisher and developer WayForward Technologies.

Review: TumbleSeed

by Mazen Abdallahon May 25, 2017
I struggle to define TumbleSeed. I guess I could call it a platformer, but it’s more about balancing than jumping. The basic idea is pretty straightforward; you balance a ball (seed) on top of a screen-wide platform(Vine). What you might be confused about is how it actually works, which I was before playing it. Basically, […]

Review: Hollow Knight

by Mazen Abdallahon April 27, 2017
The metroidvania is a time-honored tradition in both mainstream and indie gaming, and there are already quite a few really good ones out there. From the get-go, Hollow Knight seems like it ticks most of the usual boxes. Strange, desolate world? Check. Tiny creature exploring it? Check. Elaborate, hand-drawn graphics? You betcha. So, Hollow Knight […]

Review: Switch – Or Die Trying

by Mazen Abdallahon April 19, 2017
While we’ll never go back to the NES days where literally every game was a platformer, we’re in a period in gaming where platformers are pretty widespread, thanks to the indie studios. As such, new platformers need to figure out ways to stand out from the crowd. Some do it with level design, some do […]

Review: Rain World

by Mazen Abdallahon March 27, 2017
As far as settings go, the post-apocalyptic world is a really popular one for games. Besides the aesthetic of decay and the chance to avoid having to use so many colors in their design, I imagine game developers like post-apocalyptic settings because they give them a chance to pit the player against a cruel, dangerous […]
