Vicewave 1984

Vicewave 1984

There’s potential, but it’s not yet realised.


Vicewave is an open-world action game clearly inspired by Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. With a great synthwave soundtrack and vibrant 80’s style neons, the atmosphere is set. Unfortunately, the gameplay experience is lacking in several areas, and the optimisation needs work. Frankly, making any progress in this game is a constant uphill struggle against poor game mechanics.

A wild review appears.

Conclusion: if you’re expecting a fun retro style GTA game. Sadly, this is not it (List is down below). I have given this game several tries over the span of a few months. I cannot recommend it.

The Bad

1: Lockpicking is extremely tedious. The (Sweet Spot) needs to be configurable via difficulty.

2: Player dies far too easy, and body armor is behind a XP wall.

3: Difficulty is too high (for casual players of this genre).

4: Cars hand like their on something, and bottom out if bridge is too steep.

Definitely Not Fried Chicken - “For All Your Legitimate Fake Business Needs!

Definitely Not Fried Chicken is a business management sim with a Twist!

Grow your drugs trade through legitimate fronts by managing both sides of the business. Acquire new “businesses”, meet new clientele, develop more potent narcotics, make lots of money and leave a city in ruin!

Set in a sunshine soaked city in the glamorous 80’s, DNFC will test your entrepreneurial business skills.

Build your drugs compound from the ground up, buy adjoining plots of land and expand. Design and lay out your complete production line and establish distribution routes. Fortify your compounds defences and make sure any “overly-enthusiastic” customers can’t break in. Research and develop better strains of narcotics like marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine.

But simply making a great product is not enough, you need somewhere to sell it from! This is where your legitimate businesses come in - you’ll need to build and manage these fronts, including selling legal goods to avoid detection, people gotta eat right? Run a chain of Fried Chicken stores or diversify your portfolio with other businesses. Different places have different people with different tastes.

The backbone of every business is your workforce, the people who tirelessly carry out the tasks you assign them for minimum wage. A happy employee is a productive employee so it’s important to make sure your staff have the basic necessities like washrooms and a place to eat. A well furnished break room is great for staff morale!

And safety equipment will really help with staff turnover/mortality rates…

Key features

  • Start your drugs empire from the ground up, distributing marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and other goods

  • Balance the demanding tasks of managing both your illegal drugs trade and your “legit” businesses.

Rustler (Grand Theft Horse)

one of those game thats basically 7/10. its very decent

Played on the hard difficulty, i belive the time i beat the game (all quest, all side mission, some unlockables ) i was abt 80%

theres some massive jank bugs that probably already adressed after i beat it, but one of the jank are the horse mission. it is a massive bitch when i played it. to the point i had to email the dev on what im saying.

Story humour probably could get better if theres some form of actual talking instead of just Sims blabbering.

I am having a lot of fun with this game. It is relaxing at times and not frustrating at all. It is obvious where it is inspired from.

The graphics reminds me of shadow tactics. It is very pleasant to look at.

The sound in this game is relaxing. The birds and the nature ahhh. The music of the barde is very funny.

The combat is good but needs more work besides the bug fixing. I would like to see more fighting techniques, not just hit and block. I am enjoying it so far.

The humor in this game is spot on. I had moments when I laughed out loud.

This game is really a lot of fun. There is a lot to manage, but much of it comes pretty quickly as you try things. I had some questions and the devs responded very quickly. If you enjoy management games, this one is very worth a try. I got it on a bit of a sale, but I have already gotten full-price value out of it. Very fun. Very well done.

The premise is interesting and it is kind of fun when you get to run your department, respond to important and non-important calls. The developer has put in time and effort to come up with interesting calls, and I enjoy that sometimes the “bad guy” tries to shoot it out, sometimes they attempt to get away and on the odd occassion, they surrender to the Police (almost like in real life). Jurisdiction is a better version I think of 911 Operator from 2017. However, right now the game is very buggy and the camera controls are god awful. If the developer isn’t preparing to do immediate patches and continue to work hard at the game than this is a terrible investment … however, if the developer continues to develop this game … it could be a gem

NORR part I: Ace Shot

NORR part I: Ace Shot

The first part in the “NORR” game series is about three people whose fates are intertwined in a bloody war for the crown of South Florida.

How far can a man go for money and power? Mason Brown, the protagonist of Ace Shot, is ready to do much to reach the top. He is ready for treachery, numerous murders, robberies and lies. But what price will he pay for it?

In an attempt to build a criminal empire, he kills almost everyone with whom he worked, but events unfold quite differently than he imagined. Power and money corrupt him and he becomes only the pitiful shadow of the man who was at the beginning of his journey.

To end the suffering of such a monster can only another monster. William. Bloodthirsty maniac that saves the world from other bloodthirsty maniacs for money. He is a true professional. He is clever, strong, and everyone who underestimated his ability to shoot instantly regretted it. William never lost in battle. He considers himself almost invulnerable, because of which his arrogance knows no bounds. He is pragmatic and ready to do anything in order to get what he needs.

Lester has always been too emotional and never knew how to understand people. Anyone else in his place would have noticed the changes that occurred with Mason, but not him. Lester followed him even in those moments when Mason’s mind was filled with thoughts of another betrayal. He was the last to stay close to the new king of South Florida, but this blind loyalty was the cause of his death.

Welcome to the 80s.

Game features:

▲ Bizarre PVP multiplayer

▲ Exciting co-op missions

▲ 3 main characters who have their strengths and weaknesses.

▲ Lots of different weapons including special types that you can find only at certain levels.

American Fugitive

American Fugitive

I remember before picking up American Fugitive that all it took was a mention of the development team being “ex-Timesplitters” to sell me on a first week buy. As a huge fan of that series, even if the the new game’s genre was a Casino simulator, I’d probably give it a chance. A few small touches of TS' supremely fun aesthetics might be lurking somewhere in the graphics or writing of this game but mostly none of Splitters' infectious humor or silly rebel spirit are found in any one location that I can accurately point out. What we are left with is an updated take on the early GTA games that unleashes its loaded magazine on farm country Americana. Is it any good? Eh, I had a lot of fun but don’t expect a perfect experience. It’s all about what you’re looking for when it comes to your enjoyment or hatred of American Fugitive.

Man this game, It’s the weirdest game. Addictive yet mediocre. Enough to be entertained, but mundane and repetitive. Good enough to hook you but story is disappointing overall. This game is like the movie “The Room” constantly dancing the line between funny and just sad. TL;DR: 5.5/10



-Douche characters that are never redeemed. Refreshing in that GTA or Game of Thrones way that almost no character is secretly trying to do the right thing, or has a change of heart.

  • Choices. The choices in this game are pretty cool cause they can be so hilariously dry (and realistic to a degree). At one point one character asks you to go buy them donuts. You can just say “Hell no!” and they respond “ok” and then they wont give you missions for like an hour of gameplay. Or your wife shows up 2 thirds in the game (after leaving you) and she begs you to give up. You can answer with something like “F U!” and she disappears forever, never to be heard of again. These moments are utterly hilarious. But the choices are pretty intuitive and that’s cool.

Enforcer: Police Crime Action

Enforcer: Police Crime Action

I do not write a lot of reviews, but I feel this simulator needs one. I’m not going to review the story line, but just the gameplay itself. Enforcer: Police Crime Action centres around a single municipal police officer in a small desert town. You respond to call the dispatch informs you about and you have the options to respond to the calls or not. There is also real-time events happening in the city as well. It likes to focus mostly around the every day duties of a police officer and it does this very well. The simulator also goes beyond the duties of a police officer and you have to maintain you social and home life when you are not on duty, like manage your stress, eating, sleeping, and spending time with friends and family. Now that I have vaguely explained the game, I’m going to go into pros and cons of the game.

TL;DR: Remember Spacebase DF-9? Pretty much the same thing here. The game is badly optimized, blatantly unfinished, and the developers have abandoned it completely. It is not worth its full price, and I cannot recommend it.


Alright, I’ve tried to stave off writing this review for roughly a year and a half, in hopes the developers would fix the game’s bugs (which, in my opinion, should have been done before full release) and work towards giving us more content. Unfortunately, it seems they have abandoned the game, hence the missing blog page, steamdb page and dead facebook page. I will attempt to write a ‘fair’ review, however.

FBI Agent Simulator

FBI Agent Simulator


Enter the city of sin and corruption and find your way around it. Stroll down the grey streets, trying not to get lost in this this sad, concrete town, and be prepared to be called into the field office. Murders, thefts, kidnapping, drug businesses, mafia and organized crime – all of these cases are your daily bread, but it’s high time they were no more.

Are you ready to face the ugly truth and deal with the consequences?


What kind of agent do you want to be? In this game you will be able to choose your approach and follow your instincts. Should you put the arm on the suspect or pretend to befriend him? Or maybe let him loose, only to follow him and make an ambush? It’s up to you, but remember – time is of the essence and the lives of the people hang entirely on your success… or failure.

So, are you going to be a good cop, or a bad cop after all?


As soon as you receive the call – pack all the high-tech stuff and examine the crime scene. Who could do it better than an FBI agent, right? Especially since you are well-prepared and own a bag full of specialized tools that will allow you to look for the finger prints, test the blood samples, hack into the devices or instantly look through the police records. Gather all the evidence from the crime scene and take them to the lab!


After running through the evidence, you have to try to find a pattern. Maybe it’s about the look of the victims? Or the location of the crime scenes? Or the suspect’s background? The reason behind the murder is different each time and solving the puzzle requires both analytical thinking and perceptivity. Use the old-school, cork board mind map and look for the similarities. The more evidence you have, the easier the task will be!


If you have enough data, it’s time to narrow down the list of the suspects and set up some interviews. Prepare yourself and don’t lose your nerve. The culprit may want to put you off your stroke! Decide on the right approach and choose the dialogue options that will allow you to find out more about the crime and define whether the person sitting across the table is guilty or not. You may use the polygraph to help you out!


Having found the culprit? Great! All you have to do now is to arrest them and put them behind bars. Let’s just hope that you have done everything right! It would be such a shame to frame someone… However, even if you manage to choose the right person, you cannot rest on your laurels. As soon as one criminal lands in jail, the other one just starts doing atrocious things. The job of the FBI agent is never done… So you’d better brace yourself and brew some coffee!


Try to prevent the crimes from happening by using the information provided by the counterintelligence and infiltrators, but be prepared for the worse. And when it happens - solve the puzzle and find the criminal by connecting all the dots. Interview, accuse and put them in jail to make sure, that they never hurt anyone again.

Flashing Lights - Police, Firefighting, Emergency Services Simulator

I’m sorry, I really want to like this game, but if I gave it a thumbs-up, it would be for the concept and not the implementation and that’s not fair to people who are considering whether or not to purchase it.

To the dev(s): I like where you’re coming from and where you’re going with this. I hope you keep persevering and turn my opinion around. There’s an ENORMOUS amount of potential here. However, it’s plagued by issues (not just pre-release bugs) that make me question whether it has what it takes to pull off a successful release.

I wanted to review FL sooner, but I also wanted to feel this game out first. I’m a simulation “expert” in that I’ve played almost every simulator game that has come out. There were some I purposely ignored for looking terrible, however. The emergency simulation genre has been struggling for a while. You have sh*tty developers and publishers pushing out games that make you want to burn the game itself so no one else ever has to experience it. Speaking of burn, I’ve been burned by these devs and publishers a lot - specifically Excalibur. They are notorious for backing garbage games. I used to be a moderator for Enforcer and had high hopes for it. Boyyyyyyyy was everyone, myself included, mislead.

Saints Row 2

Saints Row 2

This is still a great game even when put up current gen stuff. I love it because the voice acting is excellent and it captures the feel of classic GTA3 oh so well. Even though this port has a problem with periodic “random” crashes, it’s still worth playing. Also, you really, really should bother to install the Gentlemen of the Row mod; it is worth the trouble for the quality of life adjustments alone.

I wanted to play this because I loved Saints Row 3 & 4 and Gat out of Hell. I knew it would be different, and more like GTA than the others but I wanted to try it anyway. I’m glad I did. It’s now my second favorite in the series after #4. I am looking forward to playing it again when the “MEGA Patch” is eventually released.

Saints Row 2, man where do i start.. Its a really good game but id recommend something since this thing doesn’t have achievements: cheats, use them all the time and i recommend installing Gentlemen of the row to put modification of the game called ,,Ultor Rising'' where, you are the law and try to stop all the gangs, if your looking for something extra in the ultor rising mod, the nuclear power plant is the place of fun.

But yes Honest review of the base game without mods is a 9/10 for me.

Only issue was frame drops nothing else so yeah very good game.
