Alltynex Second is the first chapter in “The Tale of Alltynex”, the game is also a remake of the original FM TOWN: ALLTYNEX, just bought from the 2017 Steam Summer Sales and fell in love with it. Here some pros and cons for the game:

The pros:

  • Simple story-lines.

  • The graphic is good.

  • Very well-level designs as well as using camera angle to make the game more dynamic. Nice visual effects.

  • Amazing soundtracks that fit the atmosphere through out entire game.

  • Responsive control scheme. Still recommend to play with a controller.

ALLTYNEX Second is a very solid shmup and the best part of the trilogy. Those familiar with the trilogy know that each game revolves around the special weapon of the ship. I played Kamui 10 hours and enjoyed the background enemy game mechanic. Whereas Reflex and reflecting shield wasn’t really my cup of tea.

ALLTYNEX Second has (in addition to normal and homing shots) extremely overpowered swords that back up as a bullet shield (just slash the barrage of bullets) and huge laser that also erases the bullets. Playing the game normally consist mostly racking the chain up by destroying small enemies with normal shot and then killing bigger enemies with swords. Bosses are often killed by cheap shotting them 4 seconds with the swords. I know the description doesn’t give a very alluring picture about the game but it is surprisingly fun and challenging (check out my game time).

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

7 / 10 (Critical) - Ridiculously underrated 2.5D platformer.

People compare this to DKC:Tropical Freeze and they’re right to do so as it’s very similar, including familiar composers, but it doesn’t quite have the budget of Tropical Freeze.

Better than the first YL game overall.

A blind 100% playthrough takes around 20-30+ hours_(in-game file time doesn’t match)_

Interesting & refreshing overworld progression with many puzzles.

5 Hidden coins to find in each level, and there are 40 levels excluding the Impossible Lair.

A solid platformer. Controls are responsive and there’s a nice variety of settings and stage hazards in the 40 (20 stages and 20 “alternate states” if you want to be specific) sidescrolling stages. A few specific things help it stand out though.

The top-down overworld is the first of the game’s Big Ideas. This overworld has you solving a bunch of simple puzzles between platforming stages, these puzzles shouldn’t give anybody much trouble but they’re quick and it helps pace things out. On the overworld tonics can be found, three of which you can equip before a stage, some have gameplay utility but most are just mildly amusing visual effects/filters that sometimes make the game barely playable (good luck seeing anything with GameBoy resolution filter), which takes some satisfaction out of finding secrets.

I played Sign for 6 months, and when I mean by play, I mean grind combos in the training room and doing nothing else as Millia. So, when revelator came out, I was super excited. Unlike Street fighter V’s launch (Sorry Capcom fans please don’t hate me) Revelator’s launch went exteremly smoothly for me.

So, let’s take a look at what the game does well:

+Netcode- HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THE NETCODE IS AMAZING. On average, I get 2-4 frames of delay and it feels like I’m playing on a console offline. Granted, this assuming you have anti-aliasing and post-effects off, but even with everything on, you’ll get 5 frames at the max. The only netcode that can top Guilty Gear’s is Killer Instinct.

This piece of sh*t of a game actually made me go out and buy a fight stick just so I could get better with it lol. I have tried out a bunch of fighting games before, but nothing came close to this. GUILTY GEAR Xrd -REVELATOR- is the best fighting game I’ve played so far, and possibly one of the best game I’ve played in general, and that’s saying a lot, because I’ve never been into fighting games that much in the past.

The Positives:

  • Complex but satisfying fighting system: The game is indeed hard to learn at first, as there are lots of mechanics to understand, but even at the beginner level, you can still pull off some cool stuff and look awesome while doing it. Once you start getting better, things like Romance Cancels and Burst will be easier to get into and you will be able to use them correctly at no time. And although combos are pretty tough to perform, I think one of the way to learn them is to watch videos and tutorial on the internet and try to copy the combo in practice mode, then slowly apply them in real matches, and sooner or later you will be able to do it. To me, that feeling of learning new moves and combos, then successfully doing them against real opponents is what makes this game so great and memorable.

Grade = D?. Worth a buy, if you enjoy shooting and dodging. But if you’re looking for score attack or time attack, don’t buy it.

I didn’t hate it nearly as much as I expected.

It’s an ok videogame but it lacks polish.

I recommend receiving it for free from a friend.

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:

Nancy Drew®: Tomb of the Lost Queen

Nancy Drew®: Tomb of the Lost Queen

I really like the graphics of this game and how in order to progress in the computer game, during which you play as Nancy Drew, you are trying to figure out the nature of the crime (whatever the crime is) by being a sleuth. I enjoyed reading the Nancy Drew books growing up during my childhood and it was really fun for me, as well as my family because my sister and I grew up watching watching mysteries, and so I’ve always liked to solve mysteries too. I think the Nancy Drew games are really nicely done because it feels like you’re solving the crime as a sleuth rather than someone who works for law enforcement, which is why I feel it’s more fun in that regard and you can progress in the game by using clues that you find while playing and also talking to various suspects in the game to investigate, which not only gives you information about them that would help in your investigation, but also helps to continue to progress further along in the game.

This is a must for anyone who’s a fan of the Egyptian tomb-exploration setting. I’d say the puzzles are medium to difficult, but they shouldn’t cause you too much pain unlike some of the more challenging installments. Some were very challenging for me but only because I happen to be really bad at ‘find the hidden word’ and sliding block puzzles.

I feel that the cast let this installment down a little. There are only four others with you at the dig site, one of whom is only there for a limited time, and none of them were particularly interesting or likeable. Often the dialogue felt like it was going nowhere and dragging on forever. On top of that Bess is the only one of Nancy’s regular crew you can chat with on the phone, and she’s even less helpful than usual. I did enjoy the reapperance of Professor Hotchkiss, though, and Nancy’s employer/supervisor. Despite the lacklustre cast and non-excistent mystery, the puzzles, the setting, and the fascinating history makes up for a lot.

Play Everhood!! (and nominate the game for best soundtrack!)


How did this slip my radar?

How are none of my friends talking about this game?

Every year if I am lucky I come across a game so good I wish I could go back in time just to play it for the first time again - and that game always becomes by Game of The Year. That game for me this year is Everhood. And I knew that within 30 minutes of playing the game. I’m nominating the game for Best Soundtrack – cause the OST is amazing and I feel it has a better chance of winning a nomination in that category but it was hard not to vote it as GOTY just from my personal experience with the game.

Real player with 23.2 hrs in game

Everhood is probably one of my favorite games I’ve played this year!! I’m nominating it for best soundtrack because oh my god. There is not one song in this game’s OST that I actively dislike.

The character design and writing is SO good and I found myself liking almost every single one I’ve encountered.

This game can be so weird and funny but at the same time I’ve cried just thinking about the ending!!!

It’s just… REALLY good, I can’t think of much else to say. Putting things into words is really hard for me, but I hope this got my feelings across well.

If you like neon, flashy graphx, platforming games and EDM, then this game is absolutely something for you …

You play as a thread in a computer (that’s the story, don’t ask), and play a meatboy-esque game where time is of importance but you have way more abilities; you can also attack enemies… and during the game you’ll be able to upgrade your character…

I got this game in a bundle and as an ’80s kid, this game almost made me drop my jaw the first time i saw it… i did drool though :)

Real player with 28.0 hrs in game

Really good game, I enjoyed it a lot so far. There’s nice cut scenes and a story in between finishing every world and the game looks very nice too. Not to mention how cool the gameplay is. It gets increasingly harder but yet not too challenging. Also after playing through the game once, you can play through it again to get all the bytes and unlock all the upgrades. And after that you can replay the levels individually again to get your name on the speedrun leaderboards. However, there were a few bytes that I’m pretty sure were impossible to pick up (altough i might just be missing something). Also, the final level wasn’t challenging enough in my opinion. Good game in general and I would say it’s worth the price.

FrightShow Fighter

FrightShow Fighter

The unique hand drawn visuals are creepy, and cute. The gameplay is similar to a 16-bit era Street Fighter wanna be, in a good way. Although characters are either gimped or broken, playing the game is fun, and with rebalancing and reconfiguring of the inputs (which are on the way) this game and it’s kooky cast of characters could be a great entry level fighter. If you’re looking for Street Fighter, Tekken, or Guilty Gear level of complex gameplay systems… slow down buddy, this game was made for tablet. But it’s still vert fun to play!

An excellent fighter, with awesome music. Controls may be a bit difficult for some to wrap their heads around, but once you get acustemed to them the game becomes a whole lot easier. Great to play with friends!

This is a game that SEGA spent a lot of time hyping up, and does it live up to their hype? Not even close.

I’ll start with the positives: the game CAN be fun and it does have a few cool stages.

Now we get into the negatives.

Control: All the characters either feel really floaty or really stiff in terms of controls, and this is mostly evident in 2D sections. Often I found myself either overshooting a jump when I jumped from quite a distance away and several instances of bad braking which would send me down to a lower path or to my death. This happened a lot with Classic Sonic and the Avatar specifically, who had 2D sections more often than Modern Sonic did.

Where do I even begin?

In short: 5.5/10, just bland game.

Please read with an open mind :)

First, the Positives:

1. Music

Sure, Fist Bump (the main theme) can get a little repetitive, but the overall music was great, most of them compliments the level they were in, and the boss battle themes are spot on. Was kinda hoping Modern Sonic’s stages music would put more emphasis on the guitars & rock genre feel, or orchestra like in Unleashed. Most of them are EDM inspired (for me anyway), I don’t enjoy them as much as previous games' music, still great though.
