Sophie’s Safecracking Simulator

Sophie’s Safecracking Simulator

Once I saw who was developing this game, I knew it would be a insta-buy on day one of release.

For a very cheap price, you get a very detailed simulator that shows you how the locking mechanisms for most modern safes work, then teaches you how to break them. I highly recommend it for all of those who are interested in locksports and/or detailed simulator games.

Now if only someone out there could make a lockpicking game with the same attention to detail that this developer has put into this simulator, that would be a day one buy from me!

As a lock picking hobbyist I figured why not, and gave this sim a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. The techniques used, the way the safe is manipulated, and the explanations given in the tutorial all translate well to what you could expect on a real safe. Not to mention for the price point, this game is well worth it for those like me that enjoy lock manipulation, or those that even just enjoy trying to solve a challenge.

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance

16 hours between Wulfgar / Drizzt Solo and Multiplayer before deciding to put my 2 cents.

First I’ll start by saying that two main complaints are legitimate but pretty exaggerated.

  • Netcode does need work and diminishes the value of twitch mechanics which otherwise work flawlessly Solo but at the same time you’re in a group so unless you’re the type to scream “But I pressed the button!” and rage. It’s mostly an annoyance right now and not bad enough to kill enjoyment of the game.

  • Enemy AI is indeed a bit derpy taking “Action Movie” turns to attack the player. This is most notable Solo. At the same time if the enemy were to aggro stick the player all at once I doubt it would be Solo’d above 2. Hero difficulty. Far as I’ve seen the issue with hitting enemies from range, esp bosses is generally fixed and in the end this isn’t a competitive game. I’ve seen 5/5 star games where the AI is still easily exploited. Just play the game and stop trying to break it.

To start this review, many of the first negative reviews, and highest rated ones, are both much too critical and based off of a low amount of hours.

This game is marvelous, but it would be ignorant to write this review and say there are no issues. Of course, there are some glaring issues. But many of them are no where near as detrimental as some of the high rated negative reviews make them seem.

The worst issue in my opinion is the lackluster AI. Many of the enemies, simply won’t attack you, if you don’t start attacking them. And you get warmed up to that very fast. However, there are some AI, who are very aggressive, and being warmed up to AI not generally attacking you, it makes it feel like… a normal game. However, if you’re playing with a team, I have not yet encountered an enemy who will actively attack you whilst reviving a teammate.

I really enjoyed this game!

The design is really simple and clean and the movement makes the level really challenging. The grammar isn’t the best and the scoreboard isn’t working as it should, but since it’s still in the making I don’t think that’s a problem.

All in all I think that this game has great potential and I’m looking forward to upcoming levels.

One of the best programming games I’ve played. Lots of levels and a variety of interesting ways to solve each one.. Competitive leaderboards, the top score in some of these puzzle are already pretty crazy. You are going to have to be super creative in order to match them. There are three categories for the leaderboards and your best score in each category for the puzzle is automatically saved. (Zachtrnoics take note please)

I have played almost every programming game on steam and this is probably my second favorite. With my favorite being EXAPUNKS

First off, I was a beta tester and received the game for free.

It might be scary for those who are not particularly into programming to look at the store page and see stuff like “Based on esoteric programming languages Befunge and Trefunge”. It could make you think this game is “too niche” and not for you.

Now, I don’t know whether you’ll actually like it or not, but let me tell you this: I had never even heard of Befunge or Trefunge before playing this, and I’m not a programming enthusiast or anything. I just looked at it as a fun puzzle game with cute monsters and animations and tried to solve the levels as best I could using good old logic.

As an old school (S)NES RPG player I was really pleased to play this game, the gameplay feels like playing Zelda - A Link to the Past, with a Megaman like soundtrack ! The story shows a not so far future where people is even more dependent on technology in a clear criticism to our current society, I won’t do spoilers here but the jokes about this society are clever and made me laugh more than once. I felt like the game was fairly easy (maybe because I’m used to this kind of game) and made me want more, an expansion with more levels/bosses would be great. In a nutshell, entertaining with a nice message to the player.

Disclaimer, for transparency’s sake: the developer is a friend of mine however I’ll be reviewing this game as unbiased as possible.

Wirewalk is a typical Gameboy dungeon crawler adventure game in the molds of the first Zelda titles with a top-down gameplay and retro graphics.

First, the story: It is rather straightforward - you’re a girl named Rada who lives in a town suddenly plagued by a mysterious computer virus that renders technology inoperable. Fortunately, Rada knows her way around computers and has developed a program nicknamed “Wirewalk” in which she’s able to “go inside the code” to fix people’s various devices.

This is a contender for my favourite puzzle game of all time.

I have played literally hundreds of puzzle games, to the point where I am basically burned out on puzzles… so when I saw Solas 128 I thought “uh-huh… lasers, mirrors, yada yada” but boy oh boy was that initial assessment wrong!

This game takes what seem like familiar puzzle elements, adds some brilliant twists and builds a huge sequence of constantly surprising puzzles from them. Time and again it hits you with those “wait but that’s impossible” problems, before delighting you with your own genius a few minutes later. On top of that, the puzzles are all integrated into a single overworld, so that they connect and interact with each other, adding another mind-blowing layer to the experience. It’s a vast intricate clockwork construction of utter perfection.

This is an absolute belter of a game. If you’re into puzzle games, you should definitely pick this up.

The “bounce lasers off mirrors” idea may sound derivative, but Solas manages to make it interesting again. The light beams have symbols travelling along them to the beat, and these can interact - if they collide the colours combine and the combined beam changes direction. So sometimes you need to get the symbols to line up, sometimes they need to be out of step so the beams can pass through each other. Combined beams can be separated with splitters - there’s lots going on here, and the game introduces them at just the right rate to keep things interesting.

Speed is a fast paced action game requiring the player to constantly think on their feet. Only two buttons guide you on this journey A click on the right/left (Mouse And Keyboard Controls) or two buttons on your favorite controller. A right sided button click with apply angular force to the square you are controlling pushing in to the right and vice versa for the left sided button. Sounds simple right? well yes but actually no. With this little control it can be EXTREMELY hard to avoid all obstacles and reach the end of each level unharmed. Every level is sure to require hundreds of rage filled attempts as your skill level increases. Mastery of controls will make you feel as if you have achieved greatness so what do you say will you play Speed or is it just too hard for you?

I am so close to liking this game, but as it stands currently I wouldn’t recommend it. The rough edges detract enough from the experience that a good chunk of my 2 hour complete playthrough ended up being annoying.


The core mechanic of the game is actually better than I expected, and there’s a lot of interesting variation that could’ve been done with it. That said, the chosen variations aren’t that interesting, or don’t live up to their potential. The move counter seems like something that would be important, but it’s actually totally ignorable for the entire game. I wasn’t even close to losing on turns once, and even racked up 200+ turns sometimes. It’s possible I just accidentally over leveled, but I wasn’t trying to in particular, and I ended the game at 16 when there’s an achievement for 15, so I think that’s just how it’s balanced. It becomes a game of mashing out anything valid as fast as you can, because there’s no incentive to be turn efficient besides the time extra key presses take.
