Super Grave Snatchers

Super Grave Snatchers

Raise the dead. Kill people. Raise them, too.

There are also spells like fireballs and soul tornadoes, if you don’t want your minions to have all of the fun.

Campaign is not long, but there’s a sandbox mode and a survival mode that you can unlock, also.

Super Grave Snatchers is a short, beautifully retro, necromantically witty and very engaging game.

The controls are simple enough, and fairly intuitive. On higher difficulties, the length of the game makes the creative permadeath fun rather than a chore (I recommend at least 2 Cheat Death items, because you basically have 1 HP). On lower difficulties, well, it’s a blast to just run around necromant-ing everything in sight. :D

As for the musical score - ::chef’s kiss::

The Final Boss

The Final Boss

I want to go immediately talking about the positive and negative aspects of the game.

Positive :

  • Good gameplay

  • Each bos has its specificity

  • Bos Alien it’s fantastic

  • Interesting feature “end game”


  • A couple of hours are enough to complete the game

However for the cost I highly recommend it

Cautiously recommend but only if you’re a hardcore fan of arcade pixel games. My playtime is due to having left the game idle - actual time played ~5hrs and it was okay.

Pros -

Unique reinvention of oldschool Qix mechanic and a good microgame in its own right - lots of inventive enemy designs and some fresh twists. Slick retro style. Awesome dark theme and some nice angsty chiptunes. 3 game modes with some minor unlockables, though imo I only recommend Adventure Mode (somewhat hidden beneath the other two) and mostly enjoyed it. There’s a lot to love about the core mechanic once you get the right combination of powerups so as to make the game speed up a bit and flow well.

Voidrun takes a fresh idea and capitalizes on it


Voidrun is a game where instead of shooting enemies with a gun or some other standard form of combat. To kill anything in this game, you circle them with void orbs, similar to games like Qix and Pokemon Ranger. It’s incredibly satisfying and puts a very different twist to the oversaturated roguelite genre.


There are 3 different game modes to play in Voidrun. Adventure mode is a more casual take on the game with no permadeath and upgrade shops, Arcade is your typical arcade mode where one hit kills you, and you grind for score on a huge flat plane (no online leaderboards. Sorry!), and the classic (roguelite) mode is where the focus seems to be, play through 4 different planets, each with 3 levels, and just try to win.Voidrun is stock full of content, each mode bringing a lot of replayability.

Lucius Demake

Lucius Demake

Lucius Demake is a bizarre 2-D, pixel art remake of an already bizarre series. Heavily influenced by Richard Donner’s 1976 horror classic, The Omen, Demake follows the young anti-christ as he wrecks havoc killing everyone who dares enter his mansion of hell. Utilizing clever puzzle solving, the game requires players to fully explore the mansion in search of items necessarry for each successful killing.

The project is an exact replica of the previous original except with digressed graphics, and a fantastic chip-tune soundtrack that perfectly captures the mood. However, despite its similarities, the core gameplay and exploration point of view has been condensed - drastically affecting the difficulty. No longer are players able to search each drawer and cupboard within each room in search of items. Instead, the essential items needed in order to progress are often found in the chapter starting point (bedroom), or casually sitting beside where they will be needed. It greatly shortened the experience, and I was able to complete the game in its entirety in just about 3.5 hours - unlocking every trophy along the way.

This Game is Killing it


You’ll probably know the story of Lucius if you consider to buy this demake version. But anyways you get born on a stormy day on the 6th of June 1966 as the son of Satan and you have to kill literally everyone who lives or works in your family home.


The game contains 18 chapters in which you have to solve some not that hard riddles and finally kill the people by manipulating objects, controlling minds, or just kill them with fire.

Beat Cop

Beat Cop

In Beat Cop’s trailer we see Kojak, Columbo, Magnum & Miami Vice… We’re in the 80’s!

But none of that, nor Sledge Hammer himself, you are Jack Kelly, a NYPD detective who has been demoted to street police after a confusing robbery of a senator’s house…

You have 3 weeks to solve the case while you fulfill your role as a street cop.

From where I start? For God’s sake, what a 3 weeks! What a street!

This game is a rare mixture, gameplay is very original. We are talking about an adventure with retro graphics where decisions matter, with a main story and daily secondary missions every day of the 3 weeks that at most will last the game (21 days) full of jokes, very funny! But it’s also a time and resource management game. As if that weren’t enough, there is also a reputation system with different factions and many different endings. All at rhythm of small (only 4 tracks) but exquisite soundtrack set in the 80’s. An explosive cocktail!

Warning: You cannot be a “good cop” throughout the whole game

Beat Cop is somewhere in the middle for me, but below the margin. I think I actually enjoyed the gameplay and visual/audio style the most, while the main storyline, the dialogue, and your “freedom” with choices are not that great.

The game focuses way too much on over-the-top dark humor to a point where it gets annoying, especially at the beginning of each day where you listen to fellow cops repeat the same cliche, one-dimensional, arrogant personality rants.

Slayaway Camp

Slayaway Camp

Total impulse buy. The game was on sale for cheap and I didn’t even finish reading the description. Probably not the best method of purchasing a game,, but I lucked out.

This is a puzzle game. Now, I normally don’t play puzzle games, so I don’t have the biggest library of game knowledge to compare this to, but it reminds me of a cross between Hitman Go and one of those flash games where you try to get the car out of a parking lot, or into a certain spot in a parking lot, etc.,. Each level is a static checkerboard, and pressing in any direction will send your character, the murderer, as far in that direction as he can possibly go. The result is that you have to shift your character around using the level layout in order to reach some harder to get to squares. The game teaches you the mechanics in the beginning tutorial and then gradually ramps up the difficulty as you progress, adding more enviromental factors and different types of NPCs.

This might just be one of my favorite puzzle games of recent times. Something about the 80’s horror movie vibe and voxel character gore has a lot of charm to it. In a way this is like the Broforce of puzzle games, and by that I mean, being able to play all of these classic villians, monsters, and creatures from your favorite horror films and slasher flicks instead of action movies. The humor of this game is spot on with the cheesiness of 80’s slashers, and almost everything is a comedic homage to them or other well known horror movies.

Goblin and Coins

Goblin and Coins

If you grew up playing classic platformers, you’ll feel right at home in Goblins and Coins. Don’t be fooled by its ‘cute’ aesthetic, it’s actually really quite challenging. I definitely recommend playing with a controller for this. On a great note though, the controls feel really tight. You’ll need that precision since the game amps up in difficulty over the course of its 5 worlds. I consider myself pretty decent at platformers and honestly I’m not sure if I’ll be able to complete this one on Old School difficulty, where if you die, you restart over from the very beginning. Luckily there’s a casual difficulty where you only have to restart that level if you lose all your health. Even on casual, some levels you may find yourself repeating multiple times just to get through. Each world ends with a boss fight, usually centered around a new mechanic introduced during that world. There’s a lot of content here for only 2 dollars.

It’s a nice little platformer, but sadly it felt like an average game to me. I mean, it works, it doesn’t crash, it has unconventional story, it has smooth controls. But it’s missing the feature which could make it a gem or excellent game. The camera could be a bit smoother, the speed of game could be a bit slower (though you quickly get used to it). Some sounds are funny and most of them feel appropriate. Music is ok. At the moment of writing this review, I didn’t finish the whole game yet (stopped just at the end of world 4, world 5 is the last one). I might update this review after I finish the game, but I doubt it will change much.
