SkyKeepers Review

    The game of Sword Twin Studios brings us a genre quite forgotten among the big companies, as it´s the Metroidvania, that is to say, platforms of action where the exploration of the mapped ones takes all the protagonism. Of course, we are not before as agile and stylized as the two sagas that give name to this genre, but the shots go closer to Guacamelee!.

    Four Sided Fantasy Review

      The independent company Ludo Land brings us their first game, Four Sided Fantasy. At first sight, this title, is another typical platform trying to excel. However, there is much more to see in this game, and for that reason here we bring you the complete review.

      Punch Club Review


      Punch Club is a mixture of game strategy and management with a life simulator. The premise of the game is revenge, in a manner similar to that of Shenmue.

      Our protagonist is the son of a fighter, who at one point dies under the bad arts of the evil bad guy on duty. Our father already warned us in life, that we would be a better fighter than him, and so he left our training to a good friend of his.

      The game begins in our house, with our character receiving a call from that friend. He comments that we must find a job, but above all that as our father left him in charge, he will do everything possible to help us in the different facets of our life as a fighter.

      Anoxemia Review

        Anoxemia is a disturbing adventure, that unfolds in the depths of the ocean, where we will witness the paranoia that will little by little deteriorate the confidence of the protagonist of this interesting title, Doctor Bailey, who tells in few scenes his adventure in addition to adding important lines to the plot as we go.

        Dr. Bailey is selected among the crew of a huge ship to be sent in a mini submarine to the obscure depths of the ocean, to fulfill an important mission that consists in collecting a specific number of specials marine plants in order to investigate them. Due to a malfunction, much of the submarine is destroyed leaving Dr. Bailey alone with a marine drone, ATMA. Without communication, the doctor will have to carry on with his mission, being guided to his destination by the drone ATMA. Little by little you will have strange presentiments of knowing the areas that you travel, you will suffer from sick hallucinations and you will begin to ask questions that will grow your paranoia and only want to fulfill its mission to return to the surface.

        88 Heroes Review

          Year 1988, the evil alien Dr H8 wants eight octillions of dollars to the human government, and if they do not give it to him in 88 minutes, it will detonate eight rockets towards earth. It's a dangerous mission ... it's a shame that all the heroes are busy, so they send (by bus) a delegation of 88 useless, abstract, quirky and kamikaze heroes to save the day. This is the argument, and how you can appreciate there is no specific protagonist, in fact the alien is antagonist and protagonist at the same time, always present on screen surrounded by his minions.

          Kona Review

            In Kona, we will put ourselves in the shoes of a private detective hired to do a job that is not too relevant, but we will discover, that there is much more hidden than we will be able to see in the beginning. Accompanied at all times by an omniscient narrator who will explain what is happening and will put us in context from the first moment, helping us to delve into history, much more than staying in what we are seeing.

            Death Squared Review

               Death Square proposes us, an original puzzle game for the whole family or friends. We can play story mode alone by managing several colored robots or playing it in the company of another person, you know that they say that two heads think more than one, because in this game is fundamental in some levels to be able to cooperate to be able to move forward with more ease.

              The Inner World Review

                The story of this adventure unfolds in the magical and mysterious land of Asposia, a huge and spherical underworld in which its inhabitants rely on three sources of wind to survive. All is well until two of them are extinguished and only remains controlled by Abbot Conroy, who lives in the same monastery as Robert, our character; A young and absent-minded apprentice who lives a quiet life as a court musician. Robert will find himself in the midst of the maelstrom along with the help of Laura, a mysterious thief, and will begin this adventure without any clue to try to discover the secret of the extinction of the wind.

                NeuroVoider Review




                Are you ready for retro gaming? NeuroVoider is a kind of RPG shooter with two sticks with isometric view, generation of random levels and with an undeniable retro dye. The proposal is original, at least. However, Flying Oak Games, the developers of the game, seems to have been inspired by the popular Gauntlet, but in NeuroVoider replace enemy nests by cores and dungeons by laboratories, and technological environments. Heroes and enemies will not be medieval warriors or wizards, but robots armed with two potentially harmful weapons.

                2Dark Review


                 In 2Dark we will play as the Detective Smith, the veteran member of the police of Gloomywood. He has a dark and dramatic past that haunts and drags to him to a self-destructive vortex by which finishes losing the position. This will not prevent Mr. Smith from resuming a sinister case of disappearance of little kids, after which he will have to enter, to the suburbs of the city, where the worst of his fellow citizens awaits him. There you will be involved in situations that touch the macabre, the visceral (literally) and other perversions.
