RPG yesterday, 21 May 2019
An online action RPG developed by Phoenix Labs studio, established by former employees of Capcom, Blizzard, Riot Games and BioWare. Dauntless takes us to Shattered Isles – a fantasy world destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm, with its continents torn apart and their fragments floating in the air. Those few who survived must face Behemoths – aggressive creatures that pose danger to all survivors, their only hope being warriors who hunt the beasts. Dauntless focuses on cooperation mode and performing quests, most of which come down to hunting monsters. Due to the fact that they possess not only brute strength but also intelligence, it is necessary to learn their behavior and weak points before engaging them. Time plays a huge role in the battles – the more we fight, the faster and more ferocious they become. Heroes can use many different weapons and combat styles, as well as special skills. Defeating opponents gets players energy, called archonite, which can be used to upgrade arsenal and armors – the bigger the monster, the bigger the benefits. Dauntless employs carton-like visuals.
Action 26 April 2019

The game is a classic turn-based RPG with elements of roguelike games - every time we die, we have to start the game all over again. Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest takes place in a Menhir Forest that brings back to life every person that was buried there. It happened to our protagonist, an amnesiac druid. He feels that the forest needs his help. Like in many RPGs, gameplay in Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest is presented from an isometric point of view. We will explore the game's world, gradually learn the plot (which will allow us to uncover the truth about our hero's past), and fight with the encountered enemies. In combat, we rely on our hero's combat abilities and spells, which we will unlock during our adventures. We will also have to make a good use of the resources we gather as we play. The game has well-made, eye-pleasing visuals.
Adventure tomorrow, 23 May 2019
Remake of a unique horror action adventure game from Ice-Pick Lodge, which originally launched in 2005 for PC. Its new version was created according to the developers’ first concept, which was previously impossible to realize in full, due to technological and financial limitations. Pathologic takes you to a small town, whose citizens suffer from a mysterious disease. In order to combat the epidemic the local authorities hire a group of independent individuals, whose task is to stop the spread of the virus before it is too late. All characters work independently from each other and conduct their own investigations. When compared with the original version, Pathologic Remake offers much better graphics, generated by the Unity engine. Emphasis was also put on new quests and plots, better gameplay balance, and improved AI of NPCs, as well as professional voiceover, the lack of which was the biggest fault of the original game.

Strategy 13 May 2019

We play as one of the gods who, with the help of his or her chosen heroes, tries to survive in the land of Thea. In terms of gameplay, Thea 2 is an evolution of the mechanics from the first game in the series. We can play in the style of a nomad, focusing only on expeditions and adventures, or have a more strategic approach and build many villages and join the conquered territories to our kingdom.

We play as an infantry soldier and take part in dynamic, purely arcade battles – though not without a good dose of realism, visible in e.g. faithfully recreated weapons. The game emphasizes players skills and lacks a character progression system typically present in other online titles, with our only reward for winning being only cosmetic additions. Battalion 1944 offers many classic game modes, like deathmatch, capture the flag, and their team variants.
