PR: Your amazing T-Gotchi! is a twisted simulator designed to show you want would happen if you neglected a human being like so many people neglected their Tamagotchis. Not a cheery game. 6/10
While the Rushdown Revolt alpha is certainly rough around the edges, it offers a unique “spark” system that allows a lot of variety to your combo opportunities.
I ran into a few odd bugs, such as a part of the fourth tutorial that cannot be completed and issues with online matchmaking (getting stuck on 100% or entering into an empty match). The glitches are forgivable though, since it is an early alpha meant to iron out exactly those.
Personally, I think the spark system is a bit too complex/hectic for me to enjoy, but I do find it fun at times. I think part of my struggle with it was due to the floaty physics, but that is something that I would get used to with practice. 6/10
Union is a minimalistic puzzle game where you need to complete the paths between shapes by rotating or moving tiles. It’s simple in concept, but turns out to be quite fun in practice. 7/10
PR: Spooky Chase is an arcade platformer with (thankfully) short levels where you compete against your past movements. It’s difficult but interesting, and requires a lot of forethought. 6/10
PR: Dungeon Throne is rather simple and could use more layout variation, but it offers a fun platforming challenge as you magic your way through procedurally generated dungeons. 7/10
Destropolis is a top-down survival shooter with a minimalist art style and plenty of weapons/items to keep you entertained. It gets tricky later on, but it’s a blast and features online scores. 7/10
The Machine’s Garden is a series of path finding puzzles, each trickier than the last. The atmosphere reduces the stress of these puzzles, and you unlock short “journal” entries as you go. 7/10
Bookbound Brigade is a 2D platformer where you control a mob of classic fictional characters, and traverse through a land of broken stories. It’s an interesting concept. 6/10
PR: Far from its cutesy appearance, RB: Axolotl is a visual novel with dark undertones and a plot centering around finding your place in the world. It’s interesting, but it made me quite anxious. 6/10
PR: Puzzle Forge Dungeon is a weird mix of a light combat system and the puzzle game 2048. It’s not bad, but it’s definitely a quirky niche that some people will love and others will hate. 6/10
