9th Dawn III
9th Dawn III is a great hack-and-slash dungeon crawler/RPG with a lot of content. The game has a semi-open world concept with limited access to areas related to the main story. There is a predefined path to progress in the game, but the number of optional dungeons gives a lot of freedom. I enjoyed the storyline, even if it is a clichéd “save the world from evil” scenario.
You can definitely tell that the developers put a lot of attention to detail in this game. There is a huge amount of items, skills, monsters and general things you can do in the game. You can go fishing and make a meal out of your catch, or you can go mining and forge a new weapon etc.

9th Dawn III is a 2D pixel take on a huge open world filled with smithing, jewelcrafting, alchemy, cooking, taming monsters, a card game along with the usual dungeon crawling and loot that are familiar for everyone. The animation and art for this game are it’s weakest points, which as an artist I hate saying. On the plus side, everything else is so damned good that you will get past the look of it pretty damned quickly. It is singularly my only “complaint” about this game, and even there the dark dreary textures that seem to blend into each other are vastly outweighed by amazingly implemented gameplay mechanics, a fun little story that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and a plethora of crafting minigames and card minigames that will keep you entertained for hours.

Review edited for release… still nothing but good things to say about it!
There is tons more I could say about this game and how much I enjoy it than what is in this review, so free to message me on Steam if you have any questions. I highly recommend this game if you’re looking for something new in your action roguelite/dungeon-crawling experiences… it was the most polished Early Access Alpha I had ever played, and is even better now that it is released.
Very nice and consistently styled, even in the character screen. The choice in what a friend of mine put as “playful yet macabre” is spot-on, and a very nice change of pace from others (not that those are bad, but FMR is a unique breath of fresh air).

If you didn’t think there was enough “Gauntlet” in “Gauntlet”, you should probably invest in this. I will mention Gauntlet rather a lot in this “review”, btw.
The first point, and it’s a reasonably large one, that this game scores over Gauntlet is that it has genuinely random (thus replayable ad inifinitum*) levels and a fairly expansive character customization section make this a far more worthwhile purchase. Gauntlet promised randomised, limitless levels and failed to deliver, preferring instead to rotate a level through 180degrees or make you do them “the opposite way round” (from start to finish in a ‘death’ level, for example). It’s obvious, woeful and does nothing to hide the fact that you’re always playing from a small group of levels that can easily be remembered, no matter what way round they are.
(longer version below)
Fun and relatively unique, however it falls short in some aspects where they try to pad out more content by just making it tediously long and hard because of enemy spam. It is very short, still has a few bugs but if you can get it really cheap, and if you’re a fan of platformers, it’s worth the 2 or so hours of gameplay.

If you’re a sucker for cheerful, fun games and cute animals in games, this one is for you. :-) I thought the main character is just adorable, and there’s even a full on story in addition to the fun platforming mechanics. Take a break from your busy day and consider Musasabi, or get it for someone you love.

About the game:
Flewfie’s Adventure is an uber cute action-adventure game with 3 difficulties (Easy, Normal, and Hard) where you fly through 5 really creative Worlds blasting monsters with the main goal of stopping the evil cat Uzzu who stole a prototype UFO from Scientist Snail and is unleashing chaos throughout the cosmos. Each World features 5 levels with different environments and new monsters and their own mini-bosses AND also 3-4 Big Boss levels. In each Level there are 5 coins to collect and a hidden puzzle room to save a Bundrop. ‘100%‘ing’ a level (getting all coins and saving the Bundrop) will unlock a chest in the World Map containing a new costume piece for Flewfie or a new skin for your UFO which can increase Attack Power or Defense. There are also side quests you can complete which reward you with even more skins!
Flewfie’s Adventure is an enjoyable and charming game. It is very clear that a lot of attention was paid to the visual aesthetic of the game. There are a vast variety of enemies populating the different worlds, all with adorable and unique designs. The worlds themselves have levels that visually vary from level to level so nothing gets stale. As for game-play this is definitely on the casual side for the genre. I died once or twice towards the end on normal mode. While there was a jump in difficulty by worlds 4 and 5, there was always an abundance of health that ensured I wouldn’t die as long as I retreated from the rougher encounters. And honestly that’s fine, it just might be worth starting off on hard mode. With that being said, the shooty-shooty stuff was still fun and reactive. Something I didn’t expect was how many boss fights there were, with about three or four per world, and a lot of them had cool designs and attack patterns.

Operation: Boom Slang! has quite a fast pace to it, witch i really enjoy! It has a lot of action and strategy, you are constantly on the move with tones of kick ass explosions surrounding you where you go, as well as shweet game play, I do love the fact of timing your shots just right in games, and the fact that they included the ability to dash really makes you feel like you can seriously kick some butt. There is definitely a great balance between weapons and ability, having that said, I feel like the Rifle could use a bit of an upgrade (like maybe shoot a bit faster).
