Blood Moon: The Last Stand

Blood Moon: The Last Stand

Crim’s Humble Opinion Curator

This is a simple but difficult hybrid clicker / wave fighter game. What you see on the store page is essentially what you get. You can move left and right and you click to attack your opponents. If they are within melee range you will attack them with a slash, otherwise you will shoot them. You don’t have to worry about reloading, but you do have to decide who to attack first and which direction to be facing; because you can only attack in the direction you are facing. You have three hits and have a special bar that goes up as you defeat enemies. With that special bar you can choose to heal one health or do massive damage on one enemy. Enemies will come at you from multiple directions and sometimes you have to throw up a shield to avoid damage from a projectile.

RPG World - Action RPG Maker

Where to begin? Diablo meets Disney, Never Winter Nights meets Legoland. This game is great on so may levels.

Whether you like playing action RPG’s or you like to craft worlds/scenarios for your friends to enjoy, Single player, multiplayer, PVP, World editor.

I can honestly say I’ve not found a game that appealed so much in a long, long time. Mostly it is FUN. Fun to build, fun to play. Challenging if you’re a serious mayhem seeker, entertaining if you just like to explore.

Since I wrote the above the game has received a steady stream of upgrades in terms of new buildings,props, collectables, choosable theme music, new npcs and enemies, a brilliant character creator so you can build your own npc’s and enemies from a huge range of body parts and AI’s, upgrades to questing making it much easier to control the flow of play. The dev’s have been seemingly tireless in their dedication to fulfilling the game’s early promise.

NOTE: This review is written while the game was in Early Access at 25th of april.

You know, I’ve always been a person who likes to build stuff. That’s why I LOVED to play with LEGO. I used to build all kinds of stuff. Cars, buildings…whatever I preferred, as long as I knew how the pieces connected to eachother. Because how hard is it to build a tower when you don’t know how your tools and bricks work? That would be a mighty challenge even for master builders…

The hobby of building things kind of continued when I started playing video games, so I bought a game like MyWorlds before called Fight the Dragon. That game had an amazing level editor with lots of tools to play with, including a lot of ‘‘invisible’’ mechanisms like triggers and such. Unfortunately that game is suffering a slow and silent death due to lack of players, which brought me back to the quest of finding a game where I could express my fountain of imagination.

Aborigenus is a short platformer about a warring tribe that has invaded your own sky tribe, taken people away, and you leave in pursuit of the warriors that left, overcoming obstacles and challenges on your way to find them. Your girlfriend is missing as well, and your main goal has been to set off in search of rescuing her, and trying to catch up with the rest of your own tribesman along the way.

This game doesn’t have nearly enough levels. It was over before I even figured out how to use all the features. I only discovered there was more than one magic skill after I was done by looking at the pictures and reviews here. And you only get to ride one single chicken. :-(


After accidentally beating the game with just the spear, level 1 crow shot, and level 1 strength, I decided to play again and figure out the skills system. That’s the closest thing to making the game long enough to be satisfying. Anyway, it’s way easier to defeat the boss with some magic blasts than just using the spear. And if you really want to gain all the skills, it’s possible to grind next to a checkpoint, then kill yourself and repeat, because the enemies respawn when the checkpoint restores you.

Risen Kingdom

Risen Kingdom

Update: I really enjoyed doing survival, where did you get the idea for the zombie cave system and loot pickups? I like designing the perfect strategy around sealing caves and loot pickups.

I like it it’s cute, the upgrades are interesting, in particular I like the hold position bonuses as that gives incentive to use something I almost never use. The main thing I don’t like about the game is sometimes it feels pretty cramped, I guess the idea is to make it more strategic but sometimes you just want a massive army of archers xD

Real player with 23.0 hrs in game

Risen Kingdom is really fun rts/tower defence game. The art style gives it a unique character. The gameplay is very well-balanced and allows you to choose a strategy that fits your play style. The length of levels is also good and you’ll get through the campaign at a good pace. Survival mode offers a bit more of a challenge where you really have to commit to your strategy. It’s very satisfying to see your defence mow down hordes of zombies. The only downside is that you end up doing a lot of waiting in the last level, “The Great Seige” but for all the pros this is really barely even a con. Otherwise, there are a few quality of life improvements that could be added like speed controls and formations. I would highly suggest this game if you want a fun, relaxing rts/tower defence experience that won’t take too long to finish. I’ll definitely be watching out for any dlcs or sequels.

Отличная затягивающая головоломка в жанре сокобана! Очень хорош дизайн уровней, есть самые разные объекты: лёд, по которому скользишь в одном направлении, взрывчатка, решетки, управляющиеся кнопками, телепорты для ящиков, замки с ключами и т.п. Музыка и звуковые эффекты красивые, играть интересно.

Sokoban with teleporters and unusual atmosphere. Forces player to take some leaps of faith here and there, but superior to its prequel, “Mushroom Quest”, in most of ways.

TLDR: Semi decent double jump platformer. Held back by odd minigame choices, pacing and difficulty issues and low audiovisual ambitions.

This is basically NES mario. But you can double jump. You can swing a sword at close range rather than jumping on things to kill them. You can wallgrab and jump from wall. You can swap your ability attack.

Abilities are kinda neat, throwing bombs or shooting lasers, you can charge it for more power. Coins are actually used to unlock static bonuses, not a bad idea.

**TL;DR: it’s no masterpiece and has some very noticeable problems, but it is overall a perfectly serviceable game that will provide a couple of hours of lighthearted fun, and it’s cheap enough even at full price (and often receives huge sales anyway) that I’m pretty sure fans of the genre would find value in the short experience.

6.8/10 - Still better than Mighty No. 9**

I really am not one who bothers writing reviews, but I’m going to go out of my way because I feel people have been a bit too harsh on this little title. Let me be clear now, it’s nowhere near perfect, and has the misfortune of belonging to a genre that is already oversaturated and filled to the brim with imitators, which means it has to compete with a huge amount of similar games, including a lot of well-made indie ones. But if you don’t go in expecting the level of quality you’d want from Megaman or Cave Story, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Flynn: Son of Crimson

I’ve been following the studio’s Twitter since who knows how long. The game was in the works for years, and it only came out now. There was one early alpha or beta stage playtest where I participated. I had a problem with that because of massive slowdowns on my end due to having a low end laptop.

Even now, with the full release of the game, the slowdowns are still present from time to time. However, it’s less apparent, especially when I run it at a lower resolution. The game is otherwise really smooth for most part.

Real player with 32.7 hrs in game

I won’t go in too deep on this one as there’s not much to talk about. Your parents died in a war to prevent another world from taking over, and now you and your loyal canine protector, Dex, to put as stop to it. However, one of Zealock’s minions have been tasked to slow you down so the takeover can be completed. In doing so, she steal’s Dex’s four power shards, and there’s nothing you can do to stop the invasion until you reclaim them.

It’s a pretty simple story backing up the title, but more does get revealed as you reach the end. The game is a visual masterpiece with a couple different areas having wildly different climate effects (including the old Ninja Gaiden fight against the wind trope that is still irritating today haha) that sometimes rely on you and the magic powers you gain. Some stages are dqark and you need to light the area, others require you to freeze blocks of water to continue.

This is an old and fun game that used to be sold by the standalone developer. It’s a shame strategies are not still posted, for it can really be challenging to win. Music soundtrack is pretty iconic… I don’t think the developer supports it anymore but if you’re into magic duels then you’ve probably spent worse money than this.

It’s “TUG-OF-WAR” with fireballs and techno-liches.

Other games come to mind, like

“Aeon Command” (space battles)

“Samurai vs Zombies Defense” (goofy samurai warfare)


“Puzzle Chronicles” (the illegitimate child of Tetris and Mortal Kombat)

These game elements are constant:

  • try to hold the line

  • manage your defences

  • beef-up your attacks

  • spam your enemies to death

In Magi, you start by opening magical “channels.” These channels enable your spells and strengthen them. Then, it’s a real-time battle as you queue-up spells for casting. It’s like the building queue in Starcraft or Civ… only it’s your shield spell, or a magic missile, or summoning an imp. As your mage is casting one spell, you have time to set up the next. And the next. You can plan a bit… or panic. Apparently, I’m still fond of panicking.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City

Valdis Story: Abyssal City

Valdis Story: Abyssal City is one of the best games i’ve played so far, i’ve been so hooked on to it that i have yet to become bored of doing the game over and over, it feels like each playthrough is a challenge and the hardest difficulty which is unlocked after your first playthrough really puts your skills to the test.

The storyline is quite a fun turn of events as neither hell or heaven is the good guy here!

You start off on a ship with your crew then some giant monster comes and crashes your ship and you all sink and end up in Abyssal City which is deep under the sea, it turns out that you have been caught up in the middle of a war between angels and demons and your only way out is to battle your way through hordes of angels and demons as you search for your missing crew!

Vosaria: Lair of the Forgotten

This game is about a human that goes into a cave and fights his way through that cave.

At the moment of posting this review, we don’t have a lot of lore available, so we have no clue what is happening/happened to the world. Other than that, the game is a really fun game. It looks and sometimes feels like a good mario 2D platformer game.

The jump-to-the-roof mechanic makes the game more fun. There are currently 12 levels in the game, and can take up to 3 hours to complete. You’ll have a lot of levels that will be difficult and that is really fun. Other levels you might need to play strategically. If you love a good 2D platformer, this game is really something for you.

Fun little platformer/shooter. It’s fairly basic with only a few enemy types. But taking the VVVVVV mechanic of flipping gravity makes this more interesting. The story is nothing to write home about, but the music is actually pretty solid. No major bugs in the game, and it controls well. Would love to see a sequel that expands on this, with more varied weapons, enemies and mechanics.

It took about 6 hours to play through all of Normal and Heroic modes. And I still need to grind out a couple more achievements.
