Prismata Review

Prismata is a game that appeals to those who enjoy games like Hearthstone but don't like randomness.I've been a fan of card games for years. Pokémon played a major role in my entertainment as I grew up. Not only did I play the games with friends but also collected, traded and battled cards too. This transitioned to other physical games until Hearthstone was released and I made the jump to the digital age for collecting cards. An issue I have with Blizzard's popular title is the random elements that take effect and can really screw a player over.  This is something I found

Staxel Review

Minecraft and Stardew Valley have had a baby, and its name is Staxel. This cute little indie game takes the best from both worlds and lumps it together. The result is a beautiful, vibrant cuboid world.Staxel, developed by Plukit and published by Humble Bundle, is at its core a farming simulator. But that’s not to say it isn’t unique. Staxel is very ambitious, taking on elements from Minecraft (mostly the blocky graphics) as well as deriving parts from Stardew Valley. Yet it seems a lot freer than the latter, and has slightly more purpose than the former.When you first start out, it’s Spring the 1st. It’s a warm-looking day… but

RIOT: Civil Unrest Review

Imagine it’s a cool December afternoon in Italy. You and several hundred others gather together with signs in hand and a plan to push into a police-guarded construction camp by nonviolent means in protest of, what you believe, to be a frivolous and unnecessary high-speed transit line. As your legion approaches the gates they are met with riot-gear-clad police bent on pushing you all back. Do you urge your comrades to push through nonviolently, or do you consider the possibility that you may need to fight your way in, whatever it takes to get your voice heard?  Welcome to our Riot:

Trials of the Gauntlet Review

Trials of the Gauntlet is a game that originated as a midterm project for a group of students at Full Sail University. Unfortunately, while the effort was there, the end result is just a clunky mess.Let's go over the bad/annoying parts first - Frustrating controls. The whole gimmick behind Trials of the Gauntlet is the grapple mechanic and what it adds to the game's platforming. Unfortunately this mechanic is just frustrating to use. It made the platforming a pain to get through and was just uncooperative most of the time.- Boring sound design. This is a very quiet game, with rather

Wulverblade Review

Few genres were as prevalent in the 80s and 90s as the side-scrolling beat 'em ups. From Streets of Rage to The Simpsons, if you were playing games a few decades ago, you surely put some pocket change into these arcade cabinets, or played others on early home consoles. For the most part, the industry has moved away from the genre, with one coming out every now and then. It's early in the year, but however it'll be tough for any of them to be more impressive than Wulverblade.Wulverblade is a historical fiction game combining ancient British history with folktales told through the generations. As the
