Some games are fun, others are challenging and a few can even be very relaxing. Water Heroes: A Game For Change by Insignio Labs are all of the above while also giving you the opportunity to help save lives. This is because half of the game’s revenue will be donated directly to project ClearWater, which is aimed at bringing clean water to the people of Ecuador. This is certainly a very worthy cause, but the actual game is definitely worthwhile too
Got a hankering for a turn-based role playing game, but tired of the same old saving the world cliché? In that case, Celestian Tales: Old North might be one to watch. The game promises lush, hand-painted environments, memorable characters, emotive character portraits, moral decisions and a sprawling storyline, but without resorting to the formulaic elements present in most RPGs. This means no ancient prophesies, world ending catastrophes, or character who is the “chosen” one
Players will soon be able to choose a race, explore the galaxy and gather resources in the upcoming digital version of Galaxy of Trian.

The game will not only feature cross-platform play across all of these formats, but also offer multiple game modes that cater to both solo and multi-player

The end result is a turn-based strategy title that aims to be simple to play, but with enough depth to keep players hooked
Anyone relying on Steam as their sole source of new releases will find themselves missing out on “Tales Of Aravorn: Seasons Of The Wolf” from Winter Wolves. This title is a turn based roleplaying game that takes place in the same fantasy world as the previous Winter Wolves hit, Loren the Amazon Princess
Super Comboman contains some great ideas, but is let down by less than stellar gameplay. Games such as Guacamelee! and Aces Wild have already demonstrated how great titles in the platform brawling genre can be, but Super Comboman doesn’t quite live up to expectations. The controls are the biggest source of frustration and the steep difficulty curve also feels more like a punishment than a challenge.
Gameplay: Lots of potential, but let down by frustrating controls and a steep difficulty curve.
Graphics: The sticker style visuals is an interesting and unique choice.
Sound: Not bad, but a little repetitive
