Golf Club Wasteland
A neat little mini-golf game set in the post apocalypse. The vibes are pretty depressing, since you ARE golfing in the wasteland, but it’s easily offset by RADIO NOSTALGIA FROM MARS!!!! (There used to be a mini review here but I’m done with this game for now)
After trying out iron mode for 5-6 hours, I can confidently say that this mode is a gimmick and that the developers did not play-test this mode at all. Want proof? Check out the achievement statistics, you’ll see that the Iron mode achievement has a VERY low % of the players completing it. Clearly, this a cardinal sin of laziness, with the developers thinking that it’s okay to slap a mode like this into the game and market it but not attempt it themselves. This is a ridiculous challenge in of itself, the weakest point of the game, and you bet your ass that I’m going to give some brutally honest feedback for it.

I’m not recommending this game because the whole package is a bit of a mess, but it does has its merits.
Without talking too much about the story, it’s a bit of a mess in that when you go through and re-read it, things don’t match up or just aren’t very well told. There’s a story here, and then there’s another telling of another tiny story, and those two somewhat contradict each other a bit. The stories told on the radio are also fantastic on their own, but it paints a bit of an incongruent history that might be a bit too scathing for the things it has a bias against; to the point where it sorta ignores how the world works…but I mean, it’s a story; there’s nothing wrong with that besides making it a bit unbelieveable.

This is a game made by a few talented individuals whose love for Dark Souls shows through the knowledge you gain as you fail across Argus. The concept of constantly needing to improve your understanding of the game and making previous levels seem like a breeze gives a sense of growth and accomplishment that a few other games seem to get right. I feel this game will also create a cult for its speed-running potential as its mechanics are begging people to break the mold and invent new crazy moves for world records.

I have played a few platformer games through the years but i have never pump into anything similar to that game. Argus Panoptes concept is very simple but really fun the same time! The physics of the games are perfect and the tools that offer are simple and fun to use. What i really liked into this game is that even after giving so much effort and spending a lot of time to just beat a level, it made me feel that i could always do better (so i can climb up the leaderboards) and indeed after many tries would feel like i “was dancing” through the level and not struggling. Lastly i would like to say that the music and the art create an atmosphere that fits into the concept ! Great work!

This is a pretty fun game, I’m surprised it has no reviews. It is extremely hard though and pretty confusing. The game constantly punishes you and it’s hard to tell if you’re playing it the way it’s meant to be played. Definitely worth checking out for people who are up to a challenge.
Fantastic experience for the price from what I played so far. Clever themes and evocative of old-school games beyond just the graphics and controls. I can’t even say this game being confusing and difficult is a bad thing since it becomes part of the game’s themes and overall feel.
If you hate games where the fact that they’re unfair is “part of the point,” maybe skip this one, but for those that like to feel their games as well as play it, for the price, this game is very high quality. And be glad there’s no walkthroughs for the game - working your way through it on your own terms is one of the most fun and satisfying parts of the game.
This is a mixed review.
I have no idea what I played. I can kinda recommend it as a “so bad it’s good” kind of game.
The gameplay is fine. On higher difficulties, there are traps similar to what you might see in “I wanna be the guy”. I like these games, but I understand that some people might hate it.
When enemies hit you, you are stunned. Also, when multiple enemies hit you in a certain way, you might get stunlocked. I still don’t like that a single enemy sometimes hits you twice rapidly.
CD Projekt Red did deliver the promised version of Cyberpunk 2077, but changed the name to Cyberemo 2007. This game has top notch music, no bugs and comes with stunning graphics!
As a bonus, it comes with the movies ‘Cabin in the Woods’ and ‘Casino Royale’ and the beloved ‘Crab People’ from ‘Southepark’. Also featuring the A+ game ‘The Last of Us’.
Did I already mentioned the mini game ‘Duck Hunt’?
A Crooked Heart
Good potential. While now you can only play the prologue, the mechanics are simple to grasp, and I feel like there’s good potential in this indie game for speedrunning. Will watch closely!
This game is really cool! Simple and easy to understand, you can just jump into it without any fuss. The animation is delightful and utterly spooky at times. A sweet story of love and rescue is punctuated by perfectly matching music and it appears that more content is on the way in the future. I played it a couple of times and would eagerly revisit for new content.
Gioco appena iniziato, ma scrivo una recensione, o meglio una prima impressione, dato che non ve ne sono altre, perlomeno nelle lingue da me scelte.
Altro motivo che mi ha spinto a dare un giudizio al titolo, seppur non completo ovviamente, è la sua qualità generale e a mio avviso la buona realizzazione di tutti i vari aspetti, semplici e non troppo pretenziosi, ma davvero ben congegnati e dalla qualità che sicuramente ripaga del costo del gioco.
Innanzitutto ottima pixel graphics, in particolare resa ancor più attraente dall’uso dei colori e dallo stile dell’ambientazione.
Really fun and really pretty game, but hopefully some more levels are added in the future :)
I really like this game!! It definitely took a little bit for me to get the hang of, but once I got the controls down, I was good to go!! It took me a few tries to get all the data cubes on level 2, but now that I’ve collected all for level 1 and 2, I’m challenging myself to see how fast I can complete each level WHILE collecting all the data cubes. I hope more levels come to this game, the art is super cool and the game runs really nicely!!
Creep is a 2D platform game that takes place inside a struggled person’s inner world represented as a worm world. You control the worm form of the same person as he shows why this world exists and how it’s like to live there.
I have no friends and life is full of obstacles
Yes, it is hard to say the other worms in the world are friendly, and there are lots of other dangers you will encounter. There is no one else other than you to cope with all these. Your only weapon is your wit against this crooked world until you reach the point to hell with it. This won’t just go forever like that. Your relationship with other worms will change as you progress.
I once loved too
Throughout the story, you will occasionally visit some memories or analogical mini levels with different gameplay than the main part of the game. These levels will unlock new abilities the worm can use. These abilities are not mere powers. They are part of the actual character progression itself and they will start to change the main gameplay and story.
