Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: China Review

The fight continues…

Some key points that this game offers:

  1. Stunning 2.5D gameplay mechanics

  2. Multiple planes to navigate on

  3. A new and unique arsenal at your disposal

Gameplay & Controls:

The standard layout is advised against. The way the controls are configured for Mouse and Keyboard users is not the greatest. Fortunately, you have the means to change the button loadout to a more comfortable experience. Playing with a controller works just as well if that is your preferred method.

The last mysterious Assassin’s Creed

There is no way I won’t recommend China, it is a great AC experience for those who care about the first two games, despise its flaws. Ezio trained Shao Jun, the most stylish assassin since Altair, performing graceful stunts to kill and then vanishing like a ghost, including a feet-dagger. It is no easy task to go classic, back again as it was in the past, the game is pseudo 3D side-scrolling that looks like Chronicles of Sub-Zero. It isn’t less complex than a full third person 3D game and can find its place on best AC games, maybe its just not enough for the setting. What really caught my attention the main character has the best voice acting on any AC to date and it is a waste to see that character squandered away with just a single game.

Best Month Ever!

Best Month Ever!

Best Month Ever is a modern point-and-click story-driven adventure of Louise and her son Mitch. Life is hard for Louise as a single mom, struggling to make ends meet. But things can always get worse, and after being diagnosed with a terminal illness that leaves her with one month to live, the clock is ticking for her to raise her son. But how do you explain that to an 8-year old kid? Mitch is picking up things fast - like a duckling, he observes his mother and imitates her behavior - but time is running out and Louise has to think carefully about making the right decisions and setting a good example for Mitch to follow. Together, they hit the road to take back the time that was stolen from them and live a lifetime as mother and son in 4 short weeks…

This intense family trip takes place during a groovy 60s era. Mother and son are thrown into both dangerous and funny situations, all of which impact their relationship and future. Their intimate tale plays out against the backdrop of a United States torn apart by political tensions and divided by brutal social inequality.

You will learn about the facts and decisions from the past in flashbacks and through memories of the grown-up Mitch - the narration constantly switches between the “past” (the 60s) and the “present” (the 70s). Finally, we jump back in time to decide what choices Louise made and how they affected the future of the two. Players’ decisions will also help shape a unique image of her as to what kind of person she was.

  • Decisions REALLY matter! To keep track of Mitch’s growth as a person, each choice you make adds positive or negative influence to three statistics: Righteousness, Confidence, and Relations. As a result, this changes your story on the go, which makes each player’s experience feel unique.

  • Mother & Son relationship - Not only will their individual fates be subject to change, but also their mutual relationship. Best Month Ever is above all else the story of the touching, challenging and unique bond that can only exist between a mother and son.

  • Different Outcomes - Turn on, tune in, drop out… and decide! Different choices result in different endings of the game. It is up to the player to decide what kind of person Mitch will become and what exactly happened during his memorable journey through the USA with his mother.

  • Weird 60s trip - What a time to travel it was! Canned Heat was singing about “Going Up the Country” while Bob Dylan asked “How does it feel” to have no home and live on the street. Louise and Mitch travel across the country, meeting bikers, hippies, Klansmen, Native Americans, and far-out wanderers of all sorts.

  • No losers here! - Don’t be a square, you can’t ‘lose’ in Best Month Ever! Your decision will shape Mitch as an adult person. He may of course get some kicks on the way, but hey, the story will still be unique and rewarding! Can you dig it?

Fist of the Forgotten

Fist of the Forgotten

Fist of the Forgotten is a platformer set in a harsh, dark world, but that doesn’t mean you’re helpless. Relics passed down from your family allow you to interact with forgotten technology and fight your way forward.

Make your way through a forgotten civilization, facing ancient automatons, and acquire some of their technology.

3D assets and high framerate physics allow for perfectly smooth, fluid animation, even on monitors that display at 100hz. Mechanics in the game, such as sliding down slopes and grappling allow you to build up and maintain momentum.

Fist of the Forgotten’s narrative contains no dialogue, so you are free to pay attention to the details to understand the depth of the story, try to uncover alternate endings, or simply focus on flowing through the levels as quickly as possible and enjoy the gameplay.

The fist provides combat capabilities as well as movement. Use it to reach further platforms and combine it with other momentum gaining abilities, such as sliding down hills, to cover extreme gaps.

I think it’s important that there’s some visible criticism of this game because it has some major flaws.

First let’s talk about my unabashed praise: The sound design and visual design are both very good - you’ll be able to gauge just from the store page if these will appeal to you. The controls are also incredibly tight and consequently controlling Nyah feels really good - there’s a level of mastery you can achieve which totally validates the design choices of the game.

Every other positive aspect of the game is modified by some quite glaring flaws.

This game.

I have had the pleasure of receiving this game as a review copy.

If you’re looking for a sweet/cute game, with amazing visuals (with meaning, if you dig deep into the story and you’ll see that everything here visually aids the overall arc!) and challenging puzzles all packaged up into a lovely platformer?

Do it. You won’t be disappointed. Take the time to go through the game and enjoy the music and try your best to explore rather than simply trying to blow through the game. Go for the hard-to-reach places and it will add another layer and dimension to the game to enjoy right then and later!

Nancy Drew®: Secrets Can Kill REMASTERED

Nancy Drew®: Secrets Can Kill REMASTERED

Unimportant little Rant:

People really want to find any flaw they can with the Nancy Drew series. I have been playing this game series since I was about 5. I’m 20 now. I love the clunky art style, and like 12 fps you get when scrolling around, it’s charming more so than ugly. It gives me a feeling of going back to 2007 and playing these kinds of games all over again, when I couldn’t just find a review or guide to it and beat it in half an hour, but actually had to use the in-game books and phone for clues and help. I guess as younger and younger people start to play this series, they might not fully appreciate it, much like I don’t think I could fully appreciate an N64 game. With that being said, I hope whatever your opinion on the series, you will try to rate it based on the time it came out and not now. It obviously is littered with problems if you think about it from a 2021 perspective, but if you could imagine yourself back in the 2000s, this game was one of the better series coming out for the point-and-click adventure genre at the time. Now you have much better story games like LIS and most of Telltale Games' series, but the Nancy Drew games to me still retain that old flair and charm of early 2000’s point and clicks.

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED! :) :) :) :) For those who love playing Nancy Drew games, you are going to love this one, because it’s much better than the majority of the older Nancy Drew games. If you read 2 reviews I’ve made on 2 of the older Nancy Drew games (Treasure in the Royal Tower and The Final Scene), and read the problems that are in both of them, none of those problems are even in this one, because it’s actually a remake, that’s why it’s called remastered, it’s a newer and improved version of the original ‘Secrets Can Kill’ one that was made in the 1980s, so it has the feel of the older games, with a better story than the majority of ones in the newer games lately, but has the features of the newer ones, like:

I had started this game on disk a long time ago. I was glad to finally finish it. I found the story to be interesting, but I felt there was no closure for the ending. I think it is worth a play, but not something I feel I need to play again. This was a solid click and point game. I just wish that Eve would walk a bit faster across the screen sometimes.

100% play through (I believe here):


This game was sick I enjoyed the hell out of it finally a cheaper game that’s not just super bad or a cash grab. This was definitely worth the money it hearkens me back to the days of finding the weird part of youtube which is hard to find. Insanely creepy and surreal but it also keeps a pretty tangible story. The game is pretty dang hard to get the good ending in as well the timing on the tongues gave my fingers one of the most insane rejection of what I wanted to do ever I was so used to timing up the tongues when I was trying to run through the 4 back to back tongues in case they were programmed to be a straight run through my fingers absolutely noped me from being so used to waiting on the timing and the fact the punishment for losing on that stage is severe since it’s the only stage without a save before it. That rejection of what I actually wanted to do gave me one of the most severe feelings of defeat in a video game to be honest. I cannot recommend this enough I hope the sound track gets sold on here as well it was super good.

This is definitely an A Tier Yai Game for those familiar with Yai Gameworks, it is very fitting that the genre for this game is Collectothon, the version of Collectothon this game is, is very unique. There is horror in this game but it really gets scary really far in, however because of a certain missing save point on the good ending it can quickly become a rage game. The surreal imagery in this game is also pretty A Tier compared to other Yai Games.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

Mostly Boring

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a platforming game where you play as a pair of characters that can switch on the fly, changing the environment, the enemies, and in a lot of parts, the available collectible crystals. Crystal collecting and switching are at the core of this game, and not much else.

Don’t expect much of a story. I’ll be honest, I found none myself, so this is really just pure game. The problem is that the game it is isn’t very good.

Navigate levels by jumping and either spinning, which turns the character into a kind of cannon ball that can break walls or attack enemies; or twisting, which allows the character to descend slowly and with more control after a jump.

Personal rating: 8/10

What about Giana Sisters - Twisted Dreams?

This seemingly cute and unambitious platformer will prove that you should never judge a book by its cover. It sports increasingly challenging level making use of the core mechanic; dual world that can change how enemies and the environment behaves around you.

The game is so cutesy, it must be easy! Hint: It is not

Although the game starts simple and easy it soon becomes one of the most difficult platforming games with long levels full of secret paths leading to more gems, which you will need to explore if you wish to earn the best rank.
