A lot like the good old Castlevania games with difficult platforming and all. If you get good with the shmoovement you can pretty much fly across levels and the combat is a lot of fun.

My main complaint is how slowly Rayne turns around. I can’t tell you how many times I try to turn around and shoot only for the turning animation to be canceled and shoot off screen. PLEASE devs reduce time to turn around by half and combat would feel great. Also adding the Japanese main menu art as an option would really put a chef’s kiss on the entire package.

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile

SO! First question you guys might ask yourselves when looking at this game:

Q: “Is the gameplay any good?”

A: Yes. BIG yes. So far, gameplay wise, it’s the best side scrolling beat’em up I’ve ever played. The gameplay is fast paced, smooth, and VERY satisfying. Both with controller AND keyboard. Feels like Smash bros but tighter and more visceral.

NOTE: For the keyboard though, you’re gonna want to go into your options, and switch your, “Blood Warp” ability to the, “F” key. You’ll know what I mean once you get the Blood Warp ability. (You get it within the 1st 5-10 minutes of playing)

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is the sequel to The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai. They both were Xbox Live Arcade games. For some reason, only this one was ported over which is disappointing because TD:VS is an awesome blood pumping beat’em up. The story is told in comic book style comment bubbles and stills, which is fine considering the 2D style to the game. You don’t necessarily need to play the first one to understand the story of this game. Its recounted numerous times during the cutscenes.

There are two playable characters Yuki (The Prisoner) or the Dishwasher. Both have their own arsenals of weapons at their disposal but operate mostly the same as far as movement and dish magic. Dish magic is 4 special abilities that can really change the tide of battle in your favor. There are also beads you can equip that add various effects to the character you choose. Both characters will share any health or magic upgrades you purchase, but the weapon upgrades are unique to the individual character. A floating robot acts as a vendor throughout most levels to purchase character upgrades and items.

BloodRayne Betrayal (Legacy)

BloodRayne Betrayal (Legacy)

If you are familiar with the Bloodrayne series, then I must first warn you that it plays nothing like the previous games, an open mind is required should you decide to purchase. This is a challenging platform brawler that has 15 stages in total, not a Metroidvania with free roam. You can obtain secret skulls that can extend your life bar or bullet count, but you won’t unlock new move sets or level up.

In terms of graphics, I feel the screenshots didn’t do it much justice. While it may look like a flash game in still frames, the animation is extremely smooth and pleasant to look at. The stage backdrops are detailed and befitting in most cases, while the blood splatters never gets old. I do have some gripes on the lack of variety though, as every single enemy of the same type will look the same every time, not even a colour swap, this was just plain lazy.

OK, look at screenshots. That’s it. End of the story. BloodRayne: Betrayal is one of those rare games that look almost exactly as they feel. What can you expect from something that looks like this? Naturally, a tiny little spin-off that has pretty much nothing with the original series. Might & Magic Heroes, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, HALO: Spartan Assault, Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet… You know the drill. And even though this game is not really important as a part of the BloodRayne series? Gameplay here sure does deserve your attention. See, BloodRayne: Betrayal is a game from WayForward Technologies. The guys who made the very first Shantae, Contra 4 and surprisingly great Aliens Infestation. And even though BloodRayne: Betrayal is not as good as those games above… it tries. It sure does.

Retro Classix: Night Slashers

The game itself is amazing, but I can’t recommend this port. I did one full playthrough, and suffered near constant flickering and stuttering, as well as random slowdown. Plus it’s the censored version with the green blood and all that.

Hopefully we get a patch to resolve these issues, but as it stands… it’s a monstrosity.

This is a fun beat ‘em up. It will definitely be a part of my Halloween fun this year.

I played it through entirely and didn’t have any problems at all. However, it seems like lots of people do. I’d suggest trying the file in MAME 2003 or Final Burn Neo. They worked fine for me in them too.

This is a beautiful game with a fantastic soundtrack and an adorable cast.

The amount of personality and detail in every single aspect of this game completely blew me away!

It’s got plenty of cute stuff to reward you with and the achievements range from funny to challenging.

Intrepid Izzy

Intrepid Izzy

Intrepid Izzy is a great game that has the old school charm with new age design, graphics, and personality. This game reminds me of the “New Super Mario” games on Wii or Switch. There is that nostalgic feeling while playing these games but also a fresh and relevant game play for 2020.

Playing Intrepid Izzy, you have the freedom to move around and re-enter stages. This is part of the games charm, as you acquire new suites while going to different levels. These suites give Izzy powers, such as fly/glide or climbing walls. As Izzy progresses through the game, she can go back to previous stages to find additional key items.

This is a case study on how important sounddesign is in a game. Visually the game is top notch but then you have 15 sec looping music and bad stock sound effects that really distract from the experience.

I do recommend the game but only with the music turned off.

AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed (REVIEW)

Minor spoilers, nothing too revealing however

After playing through all the routes and completing everything there is to the game I would say that the title ‘AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed’ is an overall great game. As you can tell by the amount of time I’ve spent on this game, I can assure you that it’s a pleasure to be playing this game.

Only once I started playing this game did I realize that the tittle is a pun.

Akiba’s Trip Undead and Undressed is an “open world” brawler game, set in a satirical setting which features a recreation of Akihabara, pop culture references, and vampires… lots and lots of vampires for the player to strip bare.

This game’s ‘thing’ is that in order to defeat your opponents, you must destroy or remove their clothes before they strip you; you don’t just beat your enemies to death as you would in most brawler games. The player must strike the enemy’s head, body and legs for the purpose of lowering their defenses, and thus allow them to remove their hats, shirts/dress and pants/skirt. Get stripped yourself and you will die, so do your best to keep your pants on!
