Black Powder Red Earth is a game based on an interesting idea, but in the end it's more annoying than fun. Definitely not for everyone.

Battle Brothers Switch Review - True Gem for Hundreds of Hours

game review29 March 2021

2021 is a strange year that will take away a lot of big launches. It doesn't hurt me at all, though, because through Battle Brothers on Switch, I don't have time for anything else anyway.

Stronghold: Warlords Review - The Sims Go to War!

game review08 March 2021

Stronghold: Warlords allows you to bare-witness the tumultuous history of the Eastern Asian continent, depicting wars of the fearsome Mongol Horde, among others. The game is terribly engrossing, offering diverse missions and even some decisions to make.

Nebuchadnezzar Review - Unremarkable Trip to the Past

game review18 February 2021

Nebuchadnezzar is a good game that brings back memories of Impressions Games' productions like Pharaoh or Caesar. And while it's fun to build a city, Nebuchadnezzar suffers from some serious flaws.

Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition Review - Dinotopia on Couch

game review11 November 2020

There's nothing better than a little boring game that hits Switch. While on a PC or PS4 I wouldn't reach for Jurassic World Evolution, this game is perfect for short sessions.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe Review - Nintendo Can Make Strategies!

game review28 October 2020

A skillful combination of absurd, Nintendo-style themes, exploration and mechanics based on raw material management. Pikmin 3 Deluxe does not change the face of the series, but a few changes from the Wii U version encourage you to meet again.

There are games that try to make us feel for others, arouse empathy, condemn thoughtless hatred. And there's also Among Us, which says : "I bet five bucks that I'll make you a two-faced pig in two rounds." And believe me, it's right.

What Do We Do With the Drunken Gameplay - Port Royale 4 Review

game review25 September 2020

Port Royale 4 is here. Will the game let us forget the rather unflattering part three of the series, created by the same studio, Gaming Minds? The answer is simple: "No, but..."

Iron Harvest Review – The RTS that Won't Surprise You with Anything

game review02 September 2020

How often does a series of concept artworks becomes a pop culture franchise? Iron Harvest, based on the works of Jakub Rozalski, is the only such case I know, but is it a good game? Well...

Corruption 2029 Review – Cyborgs Lose to Mutants

game review25 February 2020

This wasn't supposed to be another major production from the creators of Mutant Year Zero. But hardly anyone expected so many simplifications in the gameplay formula. Fortunately, the very core of the mechanics remained intact.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics Review – Surprisingly good adaptation!

game review10 February 2020

Games based on movies or TV series are usually really bad. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics definitely bucks the trend, and is as successful in that, as the Skeks' invasion of the planet Thra.

game review11 December 2019

Three years seems about enough time to pin-point the shortcomings that stop a good game from being great. Have Urban Games managed to do just that, and is their new Transport Fever 2 a game to match the legendary Transport Tycoon?

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun review – commandos gone samurai

game review06 December 2016

18 years – this much time has passed since the release of the first Commandos. Today, in Shadow Tactics, its spirit returns along with the magic of isometric tactical stealth games – they were difficult, a bit rough around the edges, but also fun to play.
