Dungeon Souls Review

Dungeon Souls is one of many 2d roguelike top-down procedural indie dungeons crawlers, and that is part of the problem. On its own, this game is fine, but the market is very saturated and some games have set the bar high, and this game just isn’t hitting that bar.

My first problem is the controls, the game offers full gamepad support, but is basically useless as the aiming is awful, and the D-pad and joystick are equally clunky. The keyboard works fine, but some controls, such as switching to different abilities, don’t mesh well with the combat and require you to backtrack often, leading to unnecessary slow downs in the combat. You also cannot bind this to the scroll wheel and must use something on the keyboard...

Armed with Wings Rearmed Review

Armed with Wings Rearmed is a 2D puzzle action platformer, where you control a female warrior and her trusty raven, as you hack and slash your way through the desolate landscapes.

The first thing that stands out is the art, Armed with wings uses an HD black and white look, with smooth edges that look like ink blotted on paper, this fits extremely well with the desolate feel the game gives, and even better with the smooth animations and combat, but we will get to that later. The art is awesome and the minimalist colors look great in the desolate feel the game provides. The accompanying music adds to this feel, and the sound effects match that. I love the parallax scrolling, and the foreground is well placed to add a small twinge of doubt before a big fight.

Speaking of the combat, it is...

Shoppe Keep Review

Shoppe Keep has been out for a while, I first heard about it in 2015 when Sips made a video series about it, I found it intriguing and I like peaceful style games, so I decided to give it a look.

Shoppe Keep has been out since 2015 when it appeared in early access, and it released in “full” in may of 2016. You will see why I put “full” in quotation marks later. The basic gameplay is this: you are a merchant in a world of heroes, peddling your goods to every knight, mage, and townsperson that finds its way to your store. You sell anything for as much of a profit as possible to expand your store, and fight of hordes of barbarians, and thieves that seek to steal some of your precious wares...

CGN – The Social Network of Gaming

A lot of people, especially those in the streaming or video making community, are always looking for a place to share their videos/streams. Good social media platforms for gamers and content creators are few and far between, with things like twitter currently dominating the market. I have been using CGN for a long time and now it is time to sing its praises.

CGN is a sort of forum for gamers and content creators, allowing people to show off their videos they’ve made, streams they are doing, and even a shop where users can sell products like custom controllers they are making. The base UI looks good and feels intuitive, with a lot of polish to make the interface to make the forum feel inviting...
