Time Commando

Time Commando


I was only 7 the last time I had ever touched this game, that was all the way back in 2009. I got frustrated with Time Commando because of how difficult it was, never being able to finish the game after already halfway through it and eventually gave up. I ended up losing the disc somehow and when I did decide to give it another try I never found it again nor could I find another copy anywhere else, so I gave up looking and eventually forgot the game even existed.

Then LO AND BEHOLD, 12 years later and I stumble across this game again on Steam. Words cannot express how absolutely THRILLED I was to be able to play Time Commando again!

i own it on CDROM now I own it on SteamROM

if u want the DOSBox to be in windowed mode with higher resolution, you have to go to the steam folder you installed it, like “X:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Time Commando”, find “TC.conf” and change the window resolution to something like “windowresolution=1280x960” then either “fullscreen=false” or just Alt+Enter when it opens

Arthurian Legends

Arthurian Legends

The Greatest Medieval Retro FPS to date…

Okay, so listen, son! This is the most fun, most historically inaccurate, bonkers, no-nonsense, Arthurian slaughter-fest you can ever imagine in videogame format. It’s like if it was made in 1996, before it was lost and forgotten for ages until a young and brave archeologist dug it out from some old crypt in Ireland.

It is highly addicting and rewarding with full of opportunities created by the wide variety of weapons, spells, and items. It’s almost like an immersive sim in terms of how many different ways you can approach an encounter or problem. It is hard but fair, very reminiscent of Blood where you need to adapt quickly to tense situations yet always thread very carefully to succeed.

This is an excellent game for fans of classic melee FPS games like, yes, Witchaven I & II. It’s absolutely a hoot to play, the secrets are very well hidden, and there’s a real attempt at atmosphere going on. I almost wish it was more like an immersive sim (or at least a step or two towards Hedon) in including notes to read along the way, just because the environments LOOK like they’d have little stories to tell. Excellent work, there.

So, all of that said, let me focus on what needs improvement, starting with one issue/disclaimer.

Pros / What’s good?


The Egyptian theme is an eye-pleasing hook, and consistent throughout most of the game. The Serket armor set looks like something from monster hunter and the Ishtar set has this silly blue-pink paint job going on.

Combat is challenging, tactical almost. To Some attacks cannot be blocked, only dodged. Some cannot be dodged, only blocked. These attacks have ‘colored trails’ on them: red is unblockable, blue is undodgeable. Parrying - I found it new that you could parry enemies blocking with their shield in order to get them to drop their guard.

Pharaonic is a game that has drawn many comparisons to the Dark Souls series with its action RPG features and the hacking and slashing. Honestly, I have not played one game of the Dark Souls series. I wanted to give Pharaonic, an indie game, a try because I was captivated by the art direction, the stunning environmental design, and the stunning background design. It is a side scrolling game with a steep learning curve, tough enemies, and a fantastic setting in Ancient Egypt.

The story of Pharaonic is set in Ancient Egypt and you play Dagi, a prisoner who tries to escape from prison to find out what happened to The Red Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt in the year 440. You get to escape with the assistance of a mysterious woman. This is where your journey truly begins, as you are almost fully naked and armed with a basic sword. The plot is not very deep, but the focus of the game is on combat. There are many enemies and the battles are very difficult. I died many times but was rarely frustrated. I quickly realized that getting killed was mainly my fault and it was a matter of understanding my strengths and weaknesses as well as understanding the strengths and weaknesses of my enemies. Your defense, like dodge roll, block, and parry, is just as important as your offense because taking a few too many hits will result in certain death.

Achilles: Legends Untold

Achilles: Legends Untold

Take part in the journey of Achilles, who stands in the middle of the centuries-long conflict between Hades and Ares. The young hero is being sent to battle the War God’s child – Phobos. His journey will take him to many different corners of mythological lands where he will obtain powerful artifacts that will aid him in his quest. Achilles is not alone as Hephaistos – the god of blacksmiths - is always ready to craft new weapons in exchange for materials.

Achilles: Legends Untold is an isometric action RPG game, greatly inspired by the souls-like genre and old-school hack&slash games. The players will venture through many unwelcoming locations, battling legendary creatures and trying to piece up the story of the world. The game is a bit lighter on the “souls” side, as the studio wanted to create an easy-to-learn but hard to master experience. Because of that, Achilles: Legends Untold may be enjoyed by the souls veterans and new players alike. And if help is needed, just summon your friends to play together in jolly cooperation, and explore various dungeons together.

The gameplay features enjoyable and skill-based combat, RPG elements, and resource management. Every item found on the journey might prove itself useful in creating new weapons and gear when brought back to Hephaistos. Throughout the game, players will become more and more skillful alongside the main character, gaining the ability to take on even more powerful foes! And you can be sure there are plenty of abominable and dreadful enemies that will cross your path.

Achilles: Legends Untold also features an innovative GAIA system, responsible for the AI characters’ actions who feel lifelike and work together in unpredictable ways. Experience immersive battles in which monsters adapt to your playstyle, try different strategies, or create ambush scenarios, driven by this contemporary in-house designed system.

Will you be persistent enough to grow in strength and take down Ares?

  • An engaging and original story inspired by the Greek mythology

  • Beautiful, eye-catching graphic design

  • Deep combat inspired by the souls-like genre and old-school hack&slash games

  • Easy to learn and hard to master gameplay

  • Jolly cooperation!

  • Innovative GAIA system responsible for enemies’ AI

Azuran Tales: Trials

Azuran Tales: Trials

Nice sidescrolllng dungeon crawler!

I have got thru about 5 or 6 levels so far, and I may come to regret saying this, but I don’t find it as hard as some of the other reviewers, and I am no Platforming Master. Many platformers, like Cuphead, Hallow Knight or SuperMeatboy are too hard for me. I would call Azuran Tales a Platformer-Lite, but the combat is challenging enough.

Some of the bosses are very tough; one in particular is a Mage who kept throwing ranged spells. I tried to dodge them and then get in my whacks when I could, but the spells just kept stacking up. After probably 15 failures, I tried a new tactic and that was go toe to toe with him. He could still throw spells but not as many and after another 10 tries I beat him. That may sound like a lot of deaths but not that crazy for a Souls-like game. In this game there is a save point right before the bosses, who may wipe me out in less than a minute, but I can go right back at em in a few seconds.

This game was alot of small twist in platforming games and a good amount of challenges. I wasn’t some god or op character which made me focus on the game alot more. loot was distrubited fairly and it made explore the area finding new things which was cool. The level up system was okay and I’m not sure if it had any effect on my character. It got buggy when i wasn’t able to damage to goblins that applied the slowing condition on me out of nowhere and the my attack animation wasn’t as fast as i though it would be. Most of the monsters could tank damage which I thought i could stagger them, and basic monster can one or two shot you. Monster placement was not to my liking as well as i could not get to a portal without a mob ganging up on me or two golems camping by a gate i needed to open to progress. how ever This is fun and i can’t for the imporvements to be made

“Await eagerly your end at my hand”


🔹Griefhelm takes its cue from some renowned niches in gaming like Nidhogg, Mordhau, For Honor, and the Souls-likes. It emphasizes on a methodical action as there’s a fine line between death and glory in this game. You are in the boots of a medieval knight who fights his way through a branching campaign You traverse from node to node through a set of stages, each challenging you with a leader battle at the end before progressing to the next location. Despite its flaws, The game is an amazing effort for a project made by a single person.

Griefhelm is a fun little action game in a pseudo-medieval setting, which I discovered recently and fell in love with. It offers lots of cosutmization and weapons, a singleplayer campaign, singleplayer and multiplayer costum fights called “encounters” which you can design the way you want by chosing your equipment, the enemy’s equipment, different rule sets, the stage/level/map and the exact gamemode: skirmish=duel, battle=capture waypoints, tug-of-war=push the enemy back by killing him and running towards the end of the stage/level and more!

Kill Demons on Steam



It’s a very simplistic, bullet hell/swarm game with a rudimentary upgrade system - There is SOME depth as to how you proceed with a certain weapon (You have 3 save slots for each of the 6 weapons, so you can test builds out). However, the upgrades are seemingly optional; however, they are absolutely required to complete any number of waves. This game has a very addictive substance to it, and I myself would love to see some more things on the farm - Perhaps you could use gold to upgrade/purchase additional farm implementations to assist you? At Wave 190, I’m killing probably around 200 enemies a wave, while scraping with minimal health/near misses!

Real player with 7.1 hrs in game

A simple fun game for only $5. I will try to beat wave 100 in the future but wave 33 is very hard. I highly recommend playing this game. It is a wave base game like Call of Duty Zombies. I would buy a game like this.

8 out of 10
