Crawlco Block Knockers

Crawlco Block Knockers

Crawlco Block Knockers is an addictive action/puzzle title that draws inspiration from a rather unusual source. The whole thing looks and plays like a sleazy nineties arcade game, but it’s so much more than just a flimsy excuse to ogle a couple of lewd images. Not only is the game challenging, but it totally nails the audio and visual style of the era while still offering enough options to customize everything to your liking. If you are a fan of the genre, then CBK is more than worth the asking price.

Gameplay: Challenging, addictive and great fun.

Graphics: The visuals perfectly capture the weird and sleazy arcade era of the nineties.

Sound: Decent sound effects and a great soundtrack by OSC

Everyone who has ever dealt with depression will know what a battle it can be to overcome. This is the situation in which Cassidy, the protagonist of Dreamscaper, finds herself, except in her case it is somewhat more literal. Cassidy actually has the ability to dive into her subconscious and take on the surreal nightmares that she wrestles with. It’s a pretty unique premise for a game and one of the reasons why we suggest checking out the Kickstarter for Dreamcaper by Afterburner Studios. Dreamscaper is an upcoming ARPG Roguelite blend that promises to combine elements from brawlers as well as top-down shooters, and dungeon crawlers
