Review: Gravity Ghost

Gravity Ghost

There’s an unspoken standard expected of indie games, notably two-dimensional games that focus to some degree on platforming. It’s the ability to share so much from so little; to use its constraints yet limitless imagination, to full undying prowess. Ivy Games are a mere four-man studio, yet it’s clear from the off-set, Gravity Ghost is an ambitious investment – a ...

HuniePop is not a game for the easily offended. This is a dating-sim crossed with a fun match-three puzzle game, and while the character designs and cheery music are quite cutesy, it has a very cheeky sense ...

Review: Captain Toad – Treasure Tracker

Captain Toad

Without question, the Captain Toad segments in Super Mario 3D World were one of the game’s unparalleled highlights. In lieu of the classic Mario platforming, these segments dropped players into thoughtful puzzle sequences that could be mistaken as a stand-alone game mixed with the regular levels. It’s no surprise that on occasions the Captain would be praised more so than World’s four ...
