Mini reviews for Gal Guardians: Demon Purge, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe, and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake.
Islets is a familiar adventure in a lot ways, but one built with a deep understanding of what makes a good metroidvania tick.
PlayStation Plus Deluxe has hundreds of games to choose from. There are plenty of blockbusters, but don’t overlook these hidden gems!
Wonder Boy Collection brings solid ports of some Sega classics to Switch, though some notable absences make it feel incomplete.
Void Riders brings exciting new levels, rad gear, and a nifty tractor beam mechanic to the slick skate-platforming of OlliOlli World.
Gibbon: Beyond the Trees turns a fluid, flow-based platformer into a potent statement on the threats faced by critically-endangered gibbons.
Arise: A Simple Story finds a natural new home on Switch, with handheld mode an ideal way to experience this intimate, bittersweet journey.
Beautiful pixel art and slick action pay homage to Neo Geo classics, though a miserly continue system creates undue frustration in Ganryu 2.
Onde isn’t a platformer or rhythm game (though it has pieces of both), but an ethereal, sensory journey through a colourful, abstract world.
With Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth, Team Ladybug continues to refine a rock-solid metroidvania foundation and prove its worth for any license.
