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. It’s not the most challenging 2D action-RPG on the market, but it’s got a lot of charm, and it is still incredibly addictive. 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.

Gameplay: Not very challenging, but a lot of fun.

Sound: Decent soundtrack and sound effects

Children of Morta

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

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

For fans of the series that missed this game the first time around, this is a great chance to see where it all started.
