The Tenth Line

The Tenth Line

A fantastic turn-based RPG experience that came out of nowhere. The game hooked me with its charm and then kept me with its surprisingly well-written dialog and character development. Every character has a clear reason to exist and be with the party throughout the story. There are many twists big and small that kept me glued to this game. I had trouble sleeping for a couple of nights over the course of my playthrough because of my desire to see how the story unfolded.

Like many have mentioned, the combat system has a steep learning curve. I have never played a turn-based RPG that requires such a great of amount of attention, pacing, and strategy as this one. The game starts out easy enough but ramps up the difficulty real quick, to the point where you may have to consult the manual and/or the disccusion forums to figure out how to play better. If you like your games to be challenging, you will probably love this, but if you don’t have enough patience to fail a few times before things click, this might not be for you. I spent four hours on a main story boss (I’m sure everyone who’s played this knows exactly who I’m talking about), but I had a real blast figuring out how to win (It’s worth noting that this boss had been toned down since I played). There is a story-only option that supposedly removes encounters on the way to bosses and makes bosses simpler. I think the story and writing alone makes this game easily worth it, so this is likely a good option for those who get frustrated spending so much time figuring out how to beat a game (though personally I think removing the hardship of the encounters makes the experience less epic).

Before I go further, I’d never heard of this game before seeing it on a friend’s stream and I have to say, it’s one of the best games i’ve played in a while.

Now, to go in depth and please note this is based on playing full on, not the Light mode…

This game is one of those few games that, when you complete the Story, you can’t help but continue to play more and try to do everything, even with this I find myself playing the story again and again, I enjoy the gameplay and story.

The game’s battle mechanics are unusual, but they actually work quite well imo, also having to consider your SP and which attacks are best for the battle at hand adds to the fun, through defending can be hit & miss depending on certain factors, such as your Training, Power Flow build and Whether or not you use a specific Character’s Super Defense. Of course, Replaying does make battles somewhat easier depending, but battles later can still prove somewhat tricky if you’re not careful.

YRek Lost In Portals

YRek Lost In Portals

YRek is quite the oddity, it’s heavily inspired by Turok, at least during the first chapter. At moments it really shines, and the price change makes it vastly more appealing. There are some really cool guns here too, and I love the environment design - i.e. Mayan Temples, Snowy castles. I think YRek is a game full of potential - it just falls a little short due to a couple of things - instant death-traps, an a checkpoint system that prohibits you from save-scumming your way past said instant death-traps. I recommend the first chapter to those of you looking for a slightly janky take on Turok - but beyond that the game has a few too many pitfalls to really make it worth investing your time into. The developer is fantastic, and is listening (and acting on) feedback from the players - so if you can think of ways to better the experience, make your voice heard.

YRek is a game based on the turok vibe like the nintendo 64 games.

The combat is the name of the game here; you are always looking for ammo and health to get thru the world.

The variety of the weapons of the game is really good.

There are some really good moments with mini bosses and some big boss fights.

The Katana is one of my favorite weapons since you can slice every enemy on the game.

If you want to kill some dudes and dinosaurs I would recommend this game.

Approximate amount of time to 100%: 35h+

Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10

Minimum number of playthroughs needed: This question is hard, but I would say 9 since you have to level up 9 Giga’s to lvl 50

Is there a good guide available: I made a guide, which you can find here

I really like this game! Though, there’s some minor stuff i really hope will get updated (and with this being in early access it likely will!)

At the time pf this review there are 3 gigas and 4 worlds

What I like

This game reminds me a lot of how some old classic flash games used to play, but with more polish and gameplay. When rampaging the attacks feel responsive and good, especially as you upgrade them more. It feels great to upgrade your giga and I personally don’t mind the quick bits of taking care of it as a baby for bonus mutation points. I love the pets system too, and how adding decorations to your giga’s home gives bonus stats. Also, despite the game being in such early access it feels like it has enough content to be worth the price even though it doesn’t even have half of the planned amount of content!

Urizen Frosty Plus The New Warriors

Urizen Frosty Plus The New Warriors

Lucky me gets to write the first review for Urizen Frosty Plus The New Warriors. This expressive word salad of a title is certainly interesting, but unfortunately more effort was put into the title than the actual game. This is a 2D retro pixel platform brawler where you take your choice of retro pixel “warrior” and bash up various undeads and ghosts and things through traditional 2D retro platformer hack and slash kind of stuff.

This game was launched almost 3 months ago and has zero reviews. So kudos to the developer for not using fake/compromised accounts to write fake positive reviews. I see that a lot, it’s bad. In a similar vein, while this was slapped together with the godawful abomination and insult to all that is good and right in gaming, GameMaker Studio, it’s not a template flip, that I can see. The vast majority of GMS games on Steam are simply copy+pastes of tutorials, demos and templates. It really seems they made a genuine attempt at a video game here (with 54 different sprites to choose from and 69 levels, apparently), they just didn’t really know how to or have the budget to hire proper developers. A+ for effort, though.

The Dragons' Twilight

The Dragons' Twilight

I bought this game with no expectations, but ended up pleasantly surprised. For a first effort and for the price, Dragons' Twilight is a definitely a game worth checking out.

The maps are a bit sparse and there are a few grammatical/capitalization errors. However, what the developer does do with the more limited game map is fairly impressive. Never did I feel like there wasn’t enough to explore. The story also is quite engaging with some rather decent character development. This development does fall away a bit toward the latter part of the game, particularly with the introduction of more characters. I actually found myself wanting to know more about certain characters and their connections to one another.

I really enjoyed the game, and very reminscent of 90’s RPG’s, which I loved. It was very straightforward, overall easy to figure out controls, etc, and what puzzles were included weren’t overly complex. Challenging but not frustrating. Even if you missed some weapons, armor or magic, winning battles and the end bosses was still possible. The few drawbacks in my opinion was that it was a bit heavy on the “gay” jokes at one point, there were regular but minor spelling errors throughout, and there weren’t changes in visiting locations or dialogue after a major event that was supposed to prompt them.

Slime’s Journey

Slime’s Journey

Slime’s Journey is a really fun side scrolling game reminiscent of old sega genesis and super nintendo games. You are a young slime orphaned by an evil shaman that has taken your parents and you are the only one able to save them! It’s the first of many slime games I’ve yet to play and it was simple and fun! You get to dress up your slime and find powerups. You have to keep a map in your mind of where you need to back track to once acquiring certain powerups, and it was a little difficult, but I managed it just fine.
