Fire Guild

Fire Guild

I like the idea of a game fighting forest fires. However this is more of a short story than a fire fighting simulator and the story here is astonishingly terrible.

Fire Guild is a casual side-scrolling game where you pilot a hot air balloon and spray an extinguisher to put out the fires below you. The controls are very easy to pick up! 6/10

Zoological Era II

Zoological Era II

I don’t make reviews.

But this fucking game had me on the verge of depression and full melancholy at times and then smiling ear to ear, happy to realise how hopeful and humble life really is.

This game manages to make a masterful and deeply personal story about going through a downward spiral in your life, full of gut-wrenching sorrow and pain. While that’s an achievement on it’s own, I truly appreciate that this game also encapsulates finding light at the end of the tunnel, getting back on your own feet and finding hope in even the smallest victories.

Cursed Treasure 2

Cursed Treasure 2

I played this game years ago, for free, on Armor Games, and when I saw it for sale cheap on Steam I thought I would give it a try. It has not disappointed.

The core is a basic tower defense game, with a great personality and a fun sense of humor. It has an interesting twist where instead of the units crossing the map and leaving, they are striving to grab one of your five gems, then return out the way they came. It does limit where you can build towers, and what types can go where, which might frustrate people, though they do have certain spots where can put any kind of tower. It doesn’t bother me, and I feel allows for more interesting level design.

I fondly remember playing this on Armor Games (the flash site). It didn’t have as much content, and had a few mechanics that were different.

The moment I saw this on Steam, I wanted to get it. Not only because it was nostalgic to me, but also because it was improved a lot from the flash version. None the less, here’s what I think:

-The gameplay is great: It’s very simple, but has quite a bit of depth to it that makes it very replayable: The goal of the game is to use and upgrade the Orc, Undead and Demon towers to kill the invaders and not let them get all your gems.Granted, to lose all your gems and fail you’ll need to let the invaders steal them on purpose, but there is a scoring system that rewards you the better you take care of these precious jewels. You get one star (Good) for saving 1-4 gems, two for saving all your gems, but with one or more getting stolen at one point (Great), and three for having all 5 perfectly intact (Brilliant). The game’s levels are contained within various areas, which have their own enemies, bosses, and various other gimmicks. Completing an area will unlock Night Mode for all of its levels. Night Mode spikes the difficulty by forcing you to place towers near areas that are lit, such as the gem caves, your towers’s ranges, etc. You once again get ranked with Good, Great, or Brilliant star ratings. Overall pretty solid.

VasterClaws 3:Dragon slayer of the God world

VasterClaws 3:Dragon slayer of the God world

  • This game mainly targets exploring dungeons (god worlds) with semi-auto battle

  • The atmosphere of god worlds is great, also the music is great, but some god worlds share the same BGM

  • Various skills. Some skills are useful in the beginning, some are useful in god world phase, some are useful in tournament, some are buff, some are always weak. I think the combination of skills is one of the most interesting parts in this game. But since there are so many skills, sometimes it’s hard to understand which skill can be used to block the specific skills

Trains of the Orient

Trains of the Orient

This game is a combination of adventure capitalist and a building game. It takes a long time to play. It is a game that you play for a while and then stop and go back to at your leisure. You you want an instant gratification game, it is not for you. It can be tedious at times. So before you buy, understand the game for what it is and is not. I took a chance on the game in spite of the negative posts. I like train games and it was a cheap game to buy. Think of the game this way. It is a puzzle with many pieces that you can go back to at your leisure. Also, you have the ability to start the game over again and try a different strategy.

I’m glad I got this game at 50% off. Because, honestly, this game is the quality of a free-to-play mobile game.

It is an interesting concept, and as a fan of OpenTTD, I thought this sort of game would be fun. But you get to see very little action in this game, and what’s more, it gets glitchy when your rail network is big.

Gun Bombers

I am addicted to this game. 59 hours in, and I still want more. I got 3, so I could play with my kids, and they destroyed me. So I decided to practice in single player mode, and I am having more fun trying to beat my high scores than I was playing multiplayer. The addicting parts are 1) finding gems or gold, and 2) trying different strategies to last longer.

Admittedly the graphics are not very good, but the gameplay is fantastic and devilishly hard.

This is a fantastic throwback to the original Mine Bombers. Got a copy for myself, my brother and one of my freinds, convinced a few more to get it and had an awesome time playing. I don’t generally write reviews but this game deserves it. I highly anticipate what features come out for it in the future as it is early access.

This gets a huge reccomend from me, get it, grow the community I want to blow of more people.


You will have to forward ports 55555 in order to host.

it does not get along with certain antivirus programs for some dumb reason.

I plan on plugging away at this one a bit more, but for now I have to suggest you save your money, no matter how low the price.

The core game-play is interesting. You have to build energy towers, which can then power up the attacking towers. Everything can be leveled up a few times, and gains a special ability once maxed out.

You also get a small array of strategic attacks that recharge over time, bombs, and acid are the main ones I have so far.

It is also one of the TD games where the enemy can shoot at you, and therein seems to lie the main issue, and by level four it seem impossible to win, as your towers are all out of commission much of the time.
