JYDGE

JYDGE

A robotic cop that acts as judge, jury and executioner? It might not be the most original idea, but JYDGE from 10tons Ltd certainly offers a lot of fun. It is a top down shooter with tons of customization options for your character as well as weapon. This means that it caters to a variety of playing styles and offers a lot of replay value, despite the relatively small number of levels. If you are a fan of the genre or simply enjoy games that allow you to experiment with how you approach objectives you’ll have a blast with JYDGE.

Gamepaly: Action packed and lots of fun.

Graphics: Perhaps a little too similar to Neon Chrome, but it still looks good.

Sound: The soundtrack is great and the sound effects very impressive

WAGAMAMA HIGH SPEC

WAGAMAMA HIGH SPEC

Join Narumi Kouki, a hardworking manga author who is still a student as he tries to juggle work and studies. To complicate matters for Kouki, he is pressured into joining the student council where he finds himself with more responsibilities as well as the only guy among a group of beautiful girls. Wagamama High Spec is a typical slice of life visual novel with a school setting, but the charming characters, humor and different routes make it stand it from the competition. There’s nothing really new here for people who are tired of the setting or tropes, but the writing is good and the visuals very polished.

Gameplay: Not a lot of choices, but they do lead to four very different story paths.

Graphics: Beautiful illustrations, tons of CGs and some nice backgrounds.

Sound: Full Japanese voice acting along with plenty of great tunes

Bullet Soul Infinite Burst

Bullet Soul Infinite Burst

Bullet Soul: Infinite Burst is an upgrade of the original game that adds a couple of new features to an already enjoyable title. The Combination Burst mode really does open up a whole new style of play and even the existing modes have been re-balanced and improved with new enemy patterns. While it is not going to change the minds of those who are not fans of the genre, Infinite Burst is surprisingly newcomer friendly and offers an enjoyable experience with plenty of game modes.

Gameplay: No new levels compared to the original Bullet Soul, but the new modes are definitely worthwhile.

Graphics: Showing its age, but still looks decent enough for the genre.

Sound: The soundtrack is great, but the sound effects are a little feeble

Lost Dimension

Lost Dimension

As the team leader of S.E.A.L.E.D, you are tasked with taking down a madman who has aspirations of destroying the world. The task should be easy enough seeing as you are in command of an elite group with extraordinary powers, but sadly this doesn’t turn out to be the case. Instead, you are faced with a mysterious tower that is infested with strange enemies as well as the looming threat of traitors in your midst. Completing your mission will require plenty of strategic thinking as well as some hard sacrifices along the way. Although it is a console port, Lost Dimension is an addictive game with some great tactical elements and interesting party members. If you are a fan of turn-based tactical role playing games, then it should not be missed.

Gameplay: The short, but tactical missions makes for an addictive experience and the game also has a ton of replay value.

Graphics: It is a console port, so the visuals aren’t exactly bursting with detail, but everything looks decent enough in high definition.

Sound: Good voice acting and a solid soundtrack
