TOHU Game Review - A Soothing and Colorful Point'n Click

After the very stealthy Spirit Roots , a small platformer intended for mobile devices and also the studio's first game, Fireart Games gave birth on January 28, 2021, to TOHU . Still in 2D, exit the platforms and this time move on to the point'n click adventure, wishing to keep a cute and colorful paw. Sold for a cheap price, the indie title published by The Irregular Corporation is available in dematerialized form on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, which is a step forward for developers with regard to their previous creation. Does this extra step translate into success? This is what we will see together. I tested TOHU version 1.01 on PlayStation 4 Pro (rated version 0.99 on the title screen). The adventure was over after 6-7 hours of play. Planet fish alert On one of the many fish-shaped planets of an unusual galaxy, a mysterious threat arrives and sows destruction. In order to save the place and its inhabitants from dawning danger, a little girl and her rob

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review - A New Inevitably Needed DLC

Two and a half years after its release, Dead Cells tirelessly continues to be updated. True "service game" of the rogue-lite, the title of Motion Twin does not have much to prove. This new paid DLC comes with a little bit of slack, and we are very happy to refill it. Fatal Falls is also the second paid DLC of Dead Cells , after The Bad Seed . On the menu: two new "biomes", a new boss, a handful of enemies to discover, and new patterns to unlock. The program is also rather agreed and the quantity of novelties seems in all respects similar to what we already found on The Bad Seed . But the strength of this DLC is probably the inventiveness of these two new levels ("The Broken Temples" then "The Eternal Shores"), which are apprehended in an opposite way. First of all, I should say that these new environments are not accessible from prison, as was the case in The Bad Seed . You have to beat the Concierge beforehand (1st boss of the game) to be abl

Olija Game Review: Another Good Fishing For Devolver

It's been a few years since we know: the independent projects supported by Devolver are to watch like milk on fire. The fact that a certain Olija , in preparation for several years at Skeleton Crew , landed in the hands of the irreverent editor last summer necessarily makes you want to be interested. It's done. No regrets, because this is a game that does not take us too far. This is a story about a storm, and, about a shipwreck. But it is also the story of a scattered crew and about an abandoned captain who will try everything to get back home, with his crew. But for that, he will have to fight. Faraday, it is the name of this penniless fisherman who thought to find wealth in the Japanese seas, is found after being caught by the depths prisoner of a hostile country, Egremonde. The surf, or rather fate, led him to a curious compass that allowed him to get his hands on a singular harpoon. This weapon is his salvation. On the one hand, because the natives like the local fauna hav

Gods Will Fall Review - A Mixed Dungeon RPG With Good Ideas

Halfway between a Roguelite and a Dungeon-RPG, Gods Will Fall is an independent game that relies on the challenge and a fairly personal conception of progression to arouse the curiosity of players. I had the opportunity to try it in preview (and exclusively), here are my impressions about the game. I had the opportunity to play a beta on Steam with one of my friends. Given the difficulty of the title, I was able to complete several more runs afterward. Half of the content was also missing. Celtic guardians Inspired by films like Band of Brothers or games like Cannon Fodder on Amiga, Gods Will Fall features a group of Celtic warriors who are humanity's last hope. In order to put an end to the tyranny of the gods who demand uncompromising submission, they will have to defeat the ten divine tyrants by traversing equally numerous dungeons. We start our adventure after a shipwreck on an island that we can explore at our leisure and without risk. It is a huge, cleverly disguised hub wh

The Medium Review: A seductive, but imperfect, horrific and artistic work

The Bloober Team (Polish studios behind Layers of Fea r, Observer, and Blair Witch ) continue with The Medium their horrific journey that began in 2016. This psychological and supernatural thriller carries on its shoulders the status of the first real Microsoft exclusive for the Xbox Series X / S as well as for PCs. Is this game finally the worthy representative of the ninth generation of consoles? VOICES FROM THE VEIL The Medium story begins in 1999 in the city of Krakow, and focuses on a woman of surprising aptitudes. From an early age, Marianne has managed in spite of herself to pierce the veil separating the material and spiritual planes and is the witness of many visions, one of which is particularly striking ... that of the murder of a poor child near a lake. Following the death of her adoptive father, our heroine receives a strange call from a man named Thomas who invites her to join him in the ruins of the Niwa hotel complex, once built in the woods bordering the Polish cit

Cyber ​​Shadow Review: The Old School Ninja With Cyberpunk Sauce Hits Hard!

The best soup is made in a retrogaming version. While not everyone clings to this hackneyed adage, it has to be said that the sheer pleasure of instinctive gameplay like it was in the '80s has never aged a bit. The indie game scene has understood this and Cyber ​​Shadow is coming to play the 200% nostalgic card ... to our great pleasure! NINJA GAIDEN, VERSION 2021 At first glance, Cyber ​​Shadow seems to want to be to Ninja Gaiden what Shovel Knight was to Mega Man. A powerful tribute that is "just like the times", while allowing itself as the only concession to ignore technical limitations. Understand by this that while the aesthetic remains "8bits", the number of colors and sprites displayed on the screen still benefit from the current performance of the machines. Thus, Cyber ​​Shadow offers all the good sides of old school gaming without losing itself in blind nostalgia. This titanic work of pixel art was carried out by a small team called Mechanical Head

Everspace 2 Review: Space Travel Accessible To All?

Space exploration has fueled many video game fantasies. If the ship piloting games are numerous, they are mostly focused on simulation. Everspace 2 takes the opposite view from Elite Dangerous and other Star Citizen by offering an accessible experience. By abandoning the Rogue-Like basics of its predecessor, the title of Rockfish intends to allow the first person to explore the infinity of space. Should you fall for this early access? Well, let's find more about it. IMPORTANT: About early access testing This Everspace 2 review assesses the strengths and weaknesses of Early Access and does not represent a definitive product yet. This test is valid for its date of 01/22/2020 and will have to be revised as the game evolves, before the test of the final version. FROM ROGUE-LIKE TO EXPLORATION IS THERE JUST ONE STEP? Announced at Gamescom 2019, Everspace 2 surprised its world by abandoning the Rogue-like in favor of a freer structure. This bet was risky, as it takes great freedoms

Hitman 3 Review: An Excellent Conclusion For The World Of Assassination Trilogy

The Agent 47 adventure reboot that began in 2016 is drawing to a close ending. The “ World of Assassination ” trilogy concludes with a third episode soberly titled Hitman 3 which follows in the footsteps of its predecessors. For nearly five years, IO Interactive Studios have been working to return to the roots of the " Hitman " franchise, the meticulous and thoughtful murder, and leave the action in its simplest device in the locker room. Will this video game's with the most formidable assassin able to end his own story with panache? That's what we will find out in this game review. THE KILLER The script has only very rarely been a central part of the Hitman experience. The story was then just a pretext to tie the missions together, while Agent 47 was generally content to chain contracts. With the " World of Assassination " trilogy, Danish studios IO Interactive focus on the story of a hit man seeking emancipation and revenge against the Providence Agency

MXGP 2020 Review: Great Sensations On PS5

Milestone Interactive has not been unemployed at the end of the last decade, synonymous with the end of the console generation. Between Ride , MotoGP , Monster Energy Supercross, and MXGP , the Milanese studio has produced more than a dozen titles in 3 years since 2018 (!). I was impatiently awaiting the first baby adapted to a next-gen console, I am talking about the brand new PS5 and its DualSense controller. 2021 offers us this first draft with motocross and MXGP 2020 , already published on PC and old-gen mid-December. In fact, this is the sixth episode dedicated to the MXGP championship, fifth in five years, the latter can face some obstacles despite a real feeling of technical progress over time. Developed each season with little time between each title, stagnation lurks and could stain the new beast from Sony. I was also expecting a smooth technical transition first and some surprises in the content, quite dull in the last installments. A BRAND NEW ENGINE CALLED PS5 And from t

Griftlands Review: From The Makers Of Don't Starve And Mark Of The Ninja Strike Hard!

In a few titles, Klei Entertainment has carved out a place for itself in the independent video game landscape. Don't Starve, Mark of the Ninja , Oxygen Not Included , Invisible, Inc .… All of these games enjoy a solid reputation and their existence is a testament to the versatility of a studio that can't standstill. After the infiltration, the tactical, the beat'em up and the survival game, the Canadian studio takes on the Deck Building genre. Still, in early access, Griftlands already has solid arguments to set itself apart from the big names and once again attest to Klei ’s mastery. IMPORTANT: About early access testing This Griftlands review assesses the strengths and weaknesses of Early Access and does not represent a definitive product review.
