Riftstorm Pre-alpha Review

Riftstorm pre-alpha test kind of surprised me because, usually in alpha tests there's like 2-3 hours of gameplay at most, but usually it's just one level of a game or a small chunk of the open world. Riftstorm had 5 levels that you could do with 4 different characters with every level having randomized rooms, power-ups and loot. It felt more like an open beta with how much content there was here, but of course, not everything was peachy and there are plenty of red flags this game has so lets get into it.Riftstorm is a top-down twin stick roguelike looter

Roots of Yggdrasil Review

City builder games have had quite of a comeback for the past few years, most notably with the release of Cities: Skylines 2. Most of the games have been playing it safe with very little deviations in the formula, that's why I was glad to see that Roots of Yggdrasil is a Roguelike city builder set in Nordic mythology.

Empty Shell Review

Empty Shell is a survival horror roguelike with a strong emphasis on a full black and white art style, as if the player was watching the action unfold through a satellite view from a bygone age. This unusual approach is both its greatest strength and its biggest shortcoming as it deeply sets the mood, but also makes it harder to distinguish enemy types, ultimately affecting gameplay as a whole.The ExpendablesThe story is an interesting one, with a hint of Squid Game if we want to look at it from a certain “disposable people” perspective. There’s an abandoned facility on a Japanese

Kinetic Storm Review

Kinetic Storm by Broken Teapot Studios Inc. is a fun and exciting action roguelike, bullet hell type of game that can easily suck you in for hours at a time. It has a sci-fi feel to it, and I have to say, they did a great job on this demo.The graphics are great and I really enjoyed the almost old-school type of feel to them.
