Lovely Planet Arcade Review

Lovely Planet Arcade has one of the most infectious soundtracks this side of Katamari Damacy, perhaps more so than the original Lovely Planet back in 2014. Lovely Planet Arcade also has one of the smoothest difficulty curves in recent memory, and much like its predecessor, will have you running through a level, shooting with utmost precision. There’s a couple of changes this time around that fundamentally change how the game is played, and while it proves to be interesting, it loses something in the process.

Dangerous Golf Review

Born out of Criterion, Three Fields Entertainment has created Dangerous Golf, a golf game that’s not really golf but a game that provides satisfying gameplay and pure destruction of inanimate objects. It avoids the cliches of destroying vehicles or even people as its form of entertainment. Dangerous Golf is a great excuse to break stuff and looks good while doing it.

Ghostbusters Review

There’s nothing more concerning than the release of a videogame around the release of a motion picture film. It feels like a quick cash-in and usually leads to a major letdown as either the game replicates the events of the movie. Ghostbusters however, goes in a unexpected direction, going for all-new characters with seemingly no tie-ins to any movie, past or present. The experience, while it is entertaining early on, quick fades into a dull-drum wade through repetition and boredom.

MXGP2: The Official Motocross Videogame Review

“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” Falling in MXGP2 happens quite often in the early goings as you get yourself acquainted with the controls. Once you are able to keep up-right, you’ll see that MXGP2 is a motocross game that is dedicated to the simulation of the sport. While MXGP2: The Official Motocross Videogame is lengthy to say, it is surprisingly fun to play.

PAC-MAN 256 Review

Hipster Whale’s take on PAC-MAN with PAC-MAN 256 was an instant hit on mobile. The mobile version was free, but with ads. If you wanted extra currency, you could watch an ad, or you’d have to wait for a reward. PAC-MAN 256 eschews all of that to prove it’s a game that can stand without ad support. It is an endless runner (of sorts) that has you attempting to gain a high score while unlocking power-ups to ensure your place atop the leaderboard. It’s such a unique and exciting way to play, you’ll have a hard time stopping.

Space Run Galaxy Review

2014’s Space Run was a pleasant surprise when it released two years ago, almost to the day. Space Run Galaxy is tower defense, done differently. You are on a linear track and essentially need to hold out, protecting the cargo and your own ship by the time you reach the end, but do so fast and efficiently. You’ll be building defenses and offenses in real-time as you make your way from point A to point B. It’s a game that the core gameplay works well, but some of the additions introduced in Space Run Galaxy doesn’t have me sticking around as much as I’d like.

SteamWorld Heist Review

SteamWorld Dig was a game that felt like it was too short, SteamWorld Heist is thankfully the opposite, and a game I want to spend all the time with. This game was first released on the Nintendo 3DS at the tail end last year, and I’m so glad it has made its way to platforms that can and does really put its beauty on display. SteamWorld Heist combines turn-based strategy, RPG, exploration, and even includes skill-based shots as part of its core gameplay to become one of the best games I’ve played this year.
