Review: SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy

by Nazih Fareson September 15, 2018
While most SNK fans are waiting for the potential King of Fighters XV, the developers figured it would be fun to play around with the iconic female fighters of the franchise and a different gameplay, in hope to spice thing up with SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy. While it looks like a simple game mainly […]

Review: The Low Road

by Mazen Abdallahon September 14, 2018
Ah, the spy game. Espionage, cloak and dagger, the whole lurking in the shadows deal. Well, actually that’s not always the case. Some spies are actually kind of boring, and they do most of their work using phones and cameras. The Low Road features this sort of spy. The Low Road opens with the bright […]

Review: Moonlighter

by Mazen Abdallahon June 10, 2018
Ah, roguelike dungeon crawlers. The bread and butter of the indie gaming scene. For the most part, ‘roguelike’ nowadays just means permadeath and randomly generated dungeons. The gameplay of roguelikes does vary quite a bit, but there’s always the central mechanic of trying, again and again, to finally reach that goal. In this sense roguelikes […]


Review: Dragon’s Crown Pro

by Luciano Rahalon May 13, 2018
When I first heard about Dragon’s Crown Pro, I was a little skeptical about what would this remastered version give us on the PS4. After doing some research, I understood that most of these changes will be made on a technical point and that worried me due to the high level of hand-drawn artistic depth […]

Review: Double Kick Heroes

by Mazen Abdallahon April 27, 2018
When I was growing up, like a lot of dorky kids, I was super into heavy metal. It wasn’t just the music; it was the whole aesthetic and lifestyle. The brotherhood of metal, the headbanging, etc. I loved all things metal, and I wanted to immerse myself in the culture as much as possible. This […]

Review: Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse

by Nazih Fareson April 6, 2018
Humbly starting on the Game Boy Color, the Shantae franchise had quite an interesting transition to multiple platforms throughout the years. Now with the launch of the Nintendo Switch, IP owners and developers WayForward Technologies decided to bring some of its biggest hits, starting with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero which we reviewed recently. Now it’s the turn […]


Review: Into the Breach

by Mazen Abdallahon March 22, 2018
I’m not generally up for turn-based games, and I’m not much for strategy, but when I saw Subset Games’ new title Into the Breach, I decided to step out of my comfort zone. For those of you that don’t know Subset games, they’re the smart fellas who put together the incredible FTL (Faster than Light). […]

Review: Boo! Greedy Kid

by Mazen Abdallahon March 12, 2018
It’s tough to deal with kids sometimes, but it can be even tougher if the kids in question are spoiled little rugrats. That’s sorta the premise of Boo! Greedy Kid; you play as a snotty little devil who wants some money to buy some soda, and once you’re denied you decide that the best way […]

Review: Mercenary Kings Reloaded Edition

by Nazih Fareson February 17, 2018
Mercenary Kings Reloaded is not really a real novelty landing on the Nintendo Switch this month, alongside other platforms like Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Originally released since March 2014 on Steam, this new version is all about bigger content and an overhaul of some key features. A licence clearly influenced by the iconic […]


Review: Under Night in-birth exe: late(st)

by Nazih Fareson February 7, 2018
With a name like Under Night in-birth exe: late(st), you should have easily guessed it, this title is definitely a Japanese fighting game, courtesy of NIS America, Arc System Works (which recently worked on the awesome Dragon Ball FighterZ reviewed on our site), and Soft Circle French Bread (known for Melty Blood). Technically released originally […]
