Over the years, Metroidvania inspired a large number of indie studios wishing to add their personal touch in order to stand out while respecting the essence of the game genre. If some titles such as Guacamelee or Hollow Knight managed to grab the hearts of the players, it’s starting to become a bit difficult to […]

Review: Demon’s Crystals

by Mazen Abdallahon July 14, 2017
In my recent review of Nex Machina, I talked about how difficult it is to make a good twin-stick shooter, considering how simple the genre is. I pointed out that the key is to come up with some manner of unique selling point that elevates the game beyond simple running and gunning. This week we […]

by Nazih Fareson May 4, 2017
When I heard about The Sexy Brutale (and recently The Sexy Brutale Full House Edition), I automatically though about a long list of games that have nothing to do with their names. Yet, The Sexy Brutale is one hell of a fun game, as if Tim Burton decided to create his own version of Cluedo. […]

Review: Heart&Slash

by Mazen Abdallahon August 16, 2016
I frequently discuss about indie tropes and design features, and I’ve noticed that indie studios definitely make a lot of 2D games and platformers. I understand that it’s not easy to design a 3D game, but 2D gaming can get a bit repetitive, and you tend to miss that third dimension. That’s why I was […]
