Minable & Create / ミナクリ

Played this back in August for a few hours and here’s my take.

This is built in RPG Maker so the graphics are based on that, which is standard for the engine.

The developer went for a 16-bit feel and they accomplished that. At the time, there was little direction on what to do and how to do anything so I spent time just wandering around; this can frustrate some players. Eventually after accessing the monument a few times I figured it out. Still, the whole crafting probably needs an overhaul to make it more user-friendly.

Similar to those big-name games listed above, the game will have you explore the map, harvesting resources to turn into materials, and then into items that you can use. Crafting is pretty “open” here, meaning that you can immediately harvest and craft the highest-tier tool or item in-game right from the start - and you should, just to save time. There’s really no point in crafting an iron axe when you could easily have crafted a gold one to use.

Planet Centauri

Planet Centauri

This is a very entertaining game worth its full early access price. I am sure you already know what it reminds you of but it has its own charm. Some key advantages it has over -those- games you are thinking about is that the torch can be placed on hotbar to help you see in the dark areas without having it selected. This means you no longer need to place a thousand torches just to see where you are digging underground at the beginning like in Terraria. You get to capture pets in this game too and they can level up and learn passives. A few of these monsters can be used as mounts. You can put these pets into special pet houses where they will earn xp overtime. Decorating inside of their houses with the proper furniture will boost the rate. Monsters have tiers so finding the higher tier ones will get higher tier passives usually or more HP/attack bonuses. Put a male and female together in house and they will produce an egg granted they are same kind of monster. They will produce egg easier when they love their home more I think (represented by heart meter)

There needs to be a feature saying “Are you sure you want to leave?” I spent hours of work and tried to press the button to open the tab to save it. Pressed the wrong one and lost hours of work. Hate it.

Edit: OK, onto the real review

Its actually really fun. Like people playground but not violent at all.

I love to build in this game, i like making garden machinery.

Actually great!

I see great potential in this game, the development is very active and content and bug-fixes are added frequently.

I love the building system, you can build whatever ship you like, from small torpedo boats to battleships or even fictional monstrosities from your own imagination.

The Sandbox Evolution - Craft a 2D Pixel Universe!

The Platforming was fun and the levels I played were short. I normally am not a huge fan of platformer games but the short levels and easier difficulty were more my play style. With that said they do have harder levels, and you can use your credits to automatically beat them if you end up on the struggle bus for long. Beating Levels and completing quest in game give you more credits to use. You can also build levels to share with others, the tools are easy to use and after a few minutes you quickly figure things out. You unlock everything using credits, once unlocked you can use them in your level design. Early on I still had a ton of credits and no problems getting the items / monsters / materials I wanted to use, but I can see where the free to play isn’t so free once you get into it. With that said I have no problem forking over some cash for a game I’m enjoying and spending lots of time with. So check it out on steam, it’s free to play and you should be able to many hours of play out of it before you hit that first $ roadblock. #tsbevolution

The artwork, character controls, interface and general stability (on PC) are obviously much better than The Sandbox, but it doesn’t quite capture the magic of the past game.

In particular the temperature system isn’t as well balanced. It’s easier to get a runaway temperature reaction (eg dropping one ice in a body of water and forming a glacier). You could do that in the previous game, but the ice was much more likely to melt if you only dropped one, and it was easier to erase all the ice and get your water back. In this game temperature tends to stick around and you typically have to erase a lot of the surrounding solid blocks in order to get

Tree of Mu

Tree of Mu

Tree of Mu is a 2D Procedurally Generated Open-World RPG which takes place in a viking land called Mu on planet Earth. This land was ruled by many kings and destroyed by many wars, but such cycle would not last. One of the kings of Mu, Eric, The Mage, couldn’t live with the fact that his days as a ruler were to end when his people, because of so many deaths and cruel decisions by Eric, gathered in front of the castle to claim his throne, he then shouted to his crowd as a last act of courage: “I will last and conquer this land as long as Mu lives”. Eric then fled and searched for a misterious power on a jorney towards the Tree of Mu, such tree were as big as the land itself and its roots would cover all the continent. Eric sat alongside the tree and whispered misterious words for days… Weeks had passed and Eric would be covered by roots and almost completely swalled by the tree itself. Once the ritual was done, Eric, The Mage, not only had died, he had buried his own soul inside the Tree of Mu, now known as Yggdrasil. As he lived inside Mu’s lifeforce, he could use the power of the four elements, and with such, he enchanted the rivers and that would change all the life that once lived in Mu. Giants, Demons, Goblins… They all came from Eric’s birth of this new world. To protect his creation, Eric raised the largest wall he could possibly raise, a wall made of an unbreakable magic ice, separating the known Earth of this magic and misterious land.

You. Warrior. Mage. Hunter. You will uncover all the misterious and fortunate adventures that are hidden in this land, but be aware, merciless monsters and dangerous animals await you. Good Luck and may the gods be with you.

Lucifer Awaits, Chump!


Highly addictive and I found myself lost in time a bit the 2nd time I was playing it.

The Notes can be super hilarious (If you have a dark sense of humor)

Mod support to add your own characters (added few Horror Villains)

Sprite animations are excellent


Wish it had more color

While the background music sounds a bit creepy it can be a bit dull in long play sessions

Repetitive sins (mod support option sorta fixed that for me however)


The game soft locked 2 times when i exited in full screen mode.

A great little game that allows you to hand out judgement on souls! once you work out what you are supposed to be doing but that’s part of the fun.

The game runs well and has a very dark sense of humour, with some LOL comments in the victims bio’s, a lot of thought has obviously gone into this game.

The game uses very little PC resources and I found myself jumping in and out to judge the damned….. I mean souls during coffee breaks, much better than minesweeper!

Overall, at such a low price it is worth having a look at, be careful though, you may get slightly addicted!
