This game is worth 5 bucks. What you get when you buy this game is beautiful animations, fantastic music, and fast-paced gameplay that’s easy to pick up while having a lot of depth for those willing to master it. The solo missions do a great job of easing you into the game’s mechanics while not bogging you down in tutorials. And the multiplayer experience is frankly amazing.

Your full enjoyment of the game will depend on if you can set it up with multiplayer though. It basically requires 4 remotes; playing with keyboard controls puts you at a huge disadvantage. Fortunately, the game not very resource-intensive, so you carry around a cheap laptop to play it anywhere. Unfortunately, multiplayer is less convenient for desktop PC users, especially if your PC is set up in a bedroom or somewhere with limited space.

Short but fun 2D platformer.

As one of the four available characters (they seemed pretty much the same other than their looks) you jump, shoot, dash and shield your way through a bunch of short missions.

There are three different mission types:

  • Target practice = Hit all the targets scattered around the stage using either your gun, shield or dash.

  • Danger Zone = Reach the goal while avoiding enemies/traps.

  • Dash = Rush to the goal as fast as possible.

There are multiple stages, each with their own gimmick, and despite each stage being only 20-60 seconds long most of them were fun to play through.

Hyper Jam

Hyper Jam

This is Hyper Jam

, a retro themed fast paced arena figther, that keeps you focused and tryingharding, you need to win, no matter what. What makes this game so great are multiple things:

**The Music: **Just amazing 80’s synthwave/retro electro music that hypes you up, makes you feel connected to the game, and just feels good to listen to.

Even if you are waiting for a game, it’s just nice to listen to while waiting, building the hype for the upcoming game, and keeping the hype from the last one. Simply perfect.****

Hyper Jam is one of the most polished indie titles I’ve ever played, and probably one of the best couch-competitive games out there.

The combat feels like it’s hit the perfect spot between too simple and too complex - everyone can understand and use each mechanic, but there’s enough depth for die-hards and experienced players to perfect and start pulling off impressive plays. The perk system makes every match feel different, and combined with the barrages you can send down when knocked out, helps equalize the playing field a little.

Astro Joust

Astro Joust

Update: I have found people to play with, and its honestly one of the most fun games on Steam. Its leaps and bounds better then the shit you see on this place. Its simple but hits right at the core of fun. The after death effects are almost more fun than trying to win. Its incredibly clever and the art is fantastic. I really hope the creator makes wallpapers available, otherwise if you screenshot the game during play it makes an instant wallpaper thats super beautiful.

While I really enjoyed the prior games by Mutant Entertainment, this one isn’t as enjoyable. I didn’t realize it was just local multiplayer until I got the game. Because of that, and lack of people to play with locally, I have been unable to even play the game until I find someone.

Astro Joust is simple and delightful. If you have an opportunity just to play some local multiplayer games, you really can’t go wrong with this. It’s not the most exciting or has super refined systems, but it’s a charming game and all elements of it are polished.

Double Dragon: Neon

Double Dragon: Neon

A fun, absurdist beat ‘em up with some glaringly rough edges. Neon is one of the better beat ‘em ups out there, peppered with jokes lampooning its own franchise as well as the ’80s in general, counterbalanced by some irritatingly sloppy pieces. Namely all its cutscenes, ending, and 8 company logos being unskippable. Since so much of the humor is based on novelty, there are a lot of diminishing returns that just aren’t designed for these drawn out, repeat viewings… which the game is centered around with a stat-grinding system.

I’ve read and heard many criticisms about this game and do not quite understand them. I will try and address them and give my opinion as to why this is probably one of the top three Double Dragon games.


Solid art design, although some of the enemies are a bit more cartoony than previous DD designs, the colors, backgrounds, animations and effects are pretty solid. The game mixes 3D models with the occasional 2D background object, The alley level is particularly nice. Varied environments and enemies with vibrant colors.

Lucky me gets to write the first review for Rand-O-mazE, which is a 2D minimalist procedurally generated maze game.

Like it says on the box, this game generates random mazes for you to navigate. There’s a few bells and whistles like multiplayer and different maze modes to add some variety. I think this really was a genuine effort to make the best damn maze game on Steam and I think this is likely to be the case.

On with the problems. The 2D minimalist graphics are the kind you’d expect from a flash or browser game. This really isn’t what you might really be looking for as a PC enthusiast gamer on Steam. Having a business model of charging money for something that’s competing with free online maze games, and competing with the puzzle section in the newspaper isn’t a recipe for success. Games don’t exist in a vacuum, unfortunately.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron’s Workshop

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron’s Workshop

Game is awesome,

at first it seems to be too easy, but the focus here lies clearly on score-hunting, there are enough incentives to reward the player properly for high scores. Is the score high enoug you become rated with stars, depending on the rating you unlock achievments, music and editor parts.

This also means that playing the game just normally, won’t satisfy the urge for challenge, that’s important to notice, if you die merely your score resets and the progress in the current room, which isn’t much. If you die three times in a row on the same room you can make yourself invincible, which is a bit too much in my opinion, but at the same time, it’s just there for completing the short main campaign, after you’ve been through it, there is a much harder campaign which is hard enough that it might be even interesting to play if you not play for scores, in these levels the invincibility option is turned off. It took me some time and was pretty hard, but earning thhree stars in the hard versions is highly satisfying.

I’d like to applaud Taito for standing behind their product and fixing the major bugs the game had that originally prevented me from recommending this title… but it’s still not perfect for the current price point. While it no longer has any game breaking issues, the main Story levels still lack the visual charm of the original Bubble Bobble (which thankfully works great now and is also included via the “Arcade of Memories”) in regards to enemy designs and block skins; proving that new doesn’t always equal better.

Electro Ride: The Neon Racing

Electro Ride: The Neon Racing

Well, what can I say. The game is unique. First and foremost for the racing game lover I should mention a very unusual set of cars which Electro Ride offers you to drive: every car is real, and includes many less-known soviet prototypes you’ve probably never heard of. But check this out: the very first car that is given to you in a tutorial is FSO Syrena Sport - and that’s just the beginning. The cast of cars is rich, diverse and very rare - I doubt you will see anything like that in any other game anytime soon.

Real player with 25.4 hrs in game


I honestly can’t recommend this game as it is completely unrealistic.

I have owned two of the cars that are in the game and I can tell you that they do not go above 120kph even in freefall.

Handling on the other hand is spot on.

You turn your steering wheel and the cars go straight. Sometimes oversteer sometimes understeer … you just never know.

I wouldn’t recommend the cars either, unless you live in a garage. Nostalgia is powerful poison.

Anyway back to the game. I’m half way into the career.
