Cat Quest II

Cat Quest 2 takes all of the elements that made the original game such a hit and polishes everything to a fine sheen.

The main story is a bit brief, but there are tons of side quests and optional dungeons that can keep players busy for ages. Although Cat Quest 2 is not perfect, it’s a lot of fun and will appeal to fans of the first game as well as newcomers looking for an accessible title.

It’s not every day that you get to swim around a tranquil underwater kingdom and interact with a pantheon of gods, but that’s precisely what is in store for players of Mythic Ocean. The game is set to release sometime later this year, but the developers, Paralune was kind enough to provide us with a demo to check out in the meantime. They describe Mythic Ocean as a narrative exploration game, which is pretty apt as there is no combat or death to worry about in this title. Instead, you can take your time to explore your surroundings and chat with the goofy cast of characters that inhabit it

Adam – Lost Memories (Adam Dubi)

Adam – Lost Memories (Adam Dubi)

As terrifying as the horror genre can be the sad reality is that the ghouls, ghost and other fantasy creatures that typically inhabit it pales in comparison to the horror that some people have to endure in real-life. It is even more heartbreaking when you realize that it is often the most vulnerable who are preyed on the most. Adam: Lost Memories is an early access title that is being created by just one person, Adam Dubi. Adam began working on the game after his psychologist suggested that he uses some form of art to work through the trauma that he experienced during his childhood. For some people, this would mean painting or poetry, but instead, Adam went ahead and created an extremely ambitious horror game

Overdungeon 超载地牢

Overdungeon 超载地牢

Overdungeon is a nice combination of rogue-like elements, card games, and the tower defense genre. With three playable characters and more than 100 cards as well as powerful relics, it is a game that easily sucks you in with its addictive gameplay. The translation quality is a little rough and the game could definitely benefit from a bit more polish, but for sheer, chaotic fun it is hard to beat.

Gameplay: The random elements can result in some really over the top battles.

Graphics: Decent, but not spectacular.

Sound: Not bad

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
