Solar 2 Review

Solar 2 is an indie game by Jay Watts where the you control a celestial body through the massive void of space, colliding and absorbing other smaller objects in order to get bigger. Simple enough, right? The game is like Flow meets Spore meets basic physics. Your key objective is to make it through the life cycle of a planet/star while avoiding larger objects or black holes.

Global Outbreak Doomsday Edition Review

Global Outbreak Doomsday Edition is another mobile port that was free for phones and tablets, but now you can pay real money for the privilege of having it on your PC. At least it’s much better than most mobile games that find their way to Steam.

Dozens of overpriced mobile ports get released on Steam every month. Frontline: Road to Moscow is no different. The game was originally available on the Appstore in July before being ported to PC. The game is a turn-based strategy title that has you control the German army and, as the title suggests, you have to make your way to Moscow by capturing every town in your way.

The Letter Review

In the age of DLC, Crowdfunding, and Shovelware there are an abundance of broken promises to gamers that are never fulfilled by developers. That promise is that if you spend a relatively low amount of money for a game or content then you are entitled to at least something that justifies your purchase, right? Well, that’s exactly the promise that The Letter for Wii U breaks.

Whispering Willows Review

There is no combat to speak of in Whispering Willows; its more the element of avoidance and timing in the presence of enemies. There are few enemies, but they do occasionally turn up and are frankly one of the most frustrating things in the game.

Shovel Knight Review

At its heart, Shovel Knight is a platformer that echoes the NES classics of Mega Man, Duck Tales, Zelda 2, and Super Mario Bros. 3, then takes everything that works well within those games and throws away the tedium that can become infuriating.

Z-Run Review

To many people, the Playstation Vita is a system known best for only its Indies and its ports. When I saw the trailer for Vita Indie game Z-Run, I was shocked to find out it wasn't a port from a mobile game. With its poor visuals, simple Temple Run style gameplay and lack of depth, I was sure that Z-Run was a zombie re-skin of some dime-a-dozen endless runner, build for mobile technology and quickly ported to the Vita. In this case, it's probably best to judge the book by its cover.
