Bullet Wave

Bullet Wave

Even though it’s short and quite buggy, Bullet Wave is a fun way to kill half an hour. I’ve played it for about twice that, 58 minutes to be exact, and I don’t really plan to go back to it anytime soon, but considering it’s only a dollar, why wouldn’t you try it?

Pretty good for what it is. Short, fun to play. Could use a few fixes here and there but other than that it’s not bad. The boss is a little too tanky in my opinon but other than that it’s good.

Pixel Ripped 1995

Pixel Ripped 1995



For the original fans of Pixel Ripped 1989 here’s my quick answer if you should buy the sequel. It’s a massive yes from me! Everything you know and love is here but it’s been turned up a quite a few notch’s and I’m assuming after the deserved success of Ana Ribeiros Pixel Ripped 1989 developers ARVORE have doubled down and expanded on what made the original really really special. In my mind this is a must buy.

Far-of-a-land is again at peace but the evil cyblin lord has other ideas and has a plan to get his goblin like hands on the Pixel stone once again and it will make him more powerful than.

I was THERE man…

It was a time of great strife, and conflict. It was WAR. It was, the Great American CONSOLE WAR. Arguably the most well known of them all. Two console enter. One console leave. But the one that left was neither of the two that entered. But I digress…

16 bit?? That’s like…twice as many bits!

This game will take you on a digital nostalgia world tour, and if you’re old enough to remember these times, you’ll no doubt feel like you’re seeing old friends for the first time in as many years. Your “Brothers in Arms” from your old War days. Console War days. If it was iconic, it’s likely here in some recognizable but not copyright infringing way. This includes the main character, who is herself something of an amalgamation of Samus, Link, and Megaman.

Pixel Ripped 1995 on Steam



This is by far the most exciting thrill ride of a highscore leaderboard battling game I’ve played in many years.

At the start, you are set to begin unlocking the other pilots and weapons (3 of each). It may seem like a huge hurdle, but once you get your mind past the unlocks and just concentrate on the leaderboard, it becomes all or nothing.

Set in a retro 90’s look with it’s vibrant landscapes and scan lines, you feel right at home. (Well I do).

The chiptune music sets the scene for the 3 stages the game throws at you. First a light tune as the first wave of enemy ships spawn in, then a faster arrangement as the flying centipedes swoop around and finally the boss music kicks, and you know by then, things are gonna go down.

“Pixelized, Fast paced, Action packed flight shoot em up'”

The more and more i played the more challenging the game got, keeping me at my toes with it’s rouge-like enemy system, as soon as i had overcome a difficult enemy a new enemy would appear and kill me several more times.

The controls are simple and easy and the smoothness you can achieve once you’ve mastered the plane is awesome. I did have to toggle the inverted vertical controls, as flying felt much better that way.

The daylight cycle makes the game more interesting as the environment changes with the lighting. At night you can watch your bullets light up the clouds and environment as you blast enemies. and vice versa

Fine Sweeper

Fine Sweeper

50 hours in and I think it’s time to write a review. Been playing it on and off rather addictively for the last month or so, most of that due to my unrelenting addiction for minesweeper (and achievements) as well as just wanting to top those leaderboards to make my life seem less worthless…

This is the best minesweeper remake I’ve ever played, it is a hell of a lot better then the windows remake that was on the windows store (not sure if they actually made it) which was a tragedy.

Like that one this too had pickups, which is an obviously new addition to the classic minesweeper formula and whilst I was pretty skeptical at first it’s a very well incorporated addition unlike the other version. There is also classic mode where you only have 1 life and therefore you hit a bomb you die (just like in real life!).

It’s a good Minesweeper remake! There are dozens of levels now instead of just three, Steam leaderboards to show off with, and the options and controls are just like how you remember them. (Plus, it’s got a nice background track that sounds roughly like a cat playing Team Fortress 2.)

That being said, Minesweeper is much more boring than I remember it. It’s mostly just a game of matching: spotting which numbers on the board are equal to the amount of adjacent tiles or flagged mines. The only real puzzle aspect to Minesweeper comes when you’ve spotted all the possible matches, and the only way to progress is to use some deductive reasoning on the remaining numbers. But no matter how hard you try, if there are too many mines clustered together in the wrong way, you’re eventually going to have to start guessing, and that’s ultimately Minesweeper’s biggest downfall.

Double Memory

Double Memory

It’s a well made implementation of the classic Memory concept. While there are not many levels, they are still a nice challenge and training. The achievements can easily be finished in less than an hour.

The game is surely worth its current price.

Really like to see an Indie developer react to reviews and bring out two patches based on them within one week of release.

No + and - below just notable things

-Completed it in 15 minutes with ALL achievements

-21 level (3-4-5-6-7-8-9) different cards on the table)

-Best price for such a game is 1$ so I can say that this is a value for money game

-Steam achievements - EASY +1 perfect game

-No cards

-Screenshot feature doesn’t work

Yes there are some easy to make steam achievements, the developer just forgot to put that tag on a steam store page.
