Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury Review: felines for each other!

Do you remember Super Mario 3D World ? Originally released on Wii U in November 2013, this episode in real-fake 3D had seduced fans tired of the "New Super Mario Bros." formula. worn to excess, despite a camera angle that is sometimes a little far and limited, due to lack of freedom in its rotation. After the easy and obvious commercial success of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe two years ago on Nintendo Switch, a port seemed necessary to see this installment, decidedly better than New Super Mario Bros. U, come back to center stage. But this time, he is not alone and is accompanied by Bowser's Fury, a new (mode of) game independent of the basic title, attractive at first glance and whose only the lifespan still worried. In 2019, the New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe hadn't taken too many risks, contenting itself with bringing together one of the very first titles of the defunct Wii U and its stand-alone, the rather tough New Super Luigi U .

Turrican Flashback Review - A Light Compilation For An Exceptional Series

Shaped by Manfred Trenz and the Factor 5 team on behalf of Rainbow Arts , Turrican is one of the most iconic series of the early 1990s. Mixing the mechanics of a Metroid with those of a run & gun, the title born on Commodore 64 and Amiga has forged an excellent reputation among fans of the genre. Strikingly beautiful on release, the game was noted for its edgy gameplay and exceptional Chris Hülsbeck soundtrack. While the two Turrican Anthology compilations should arrive in the coming weeks (they are in advance on the Strictly Limited site), ININ Games is taking the lead with this Turrican Flashback . Bringing together four episodes, it is available on PlayStation 4 (PlayStation 5 compatible) and Nintendo Switch and will bring back fond memories to those who roamed the Alterra colony three decades ago (for rejuvenation, it's a gift ). However, we would have liked the compilation not to be limited to 4 games and a few filters ... Turrican , what's that name? If you have no

Override 2: Super Mech League Review - Take The Same Ones And Start Over

Two years ago, Override: Mech City Brawl was released, the title put us in command of a robot for battle in arenas. The concept seemed appealing, but yet, many flaws spoiled the experience: too limited content, too messy handling and fights ... In short, all was not rosy in the land of mechs. With the arrival of Override 2: Super Mech League , my expectations were high and I hoped that the major flaws of the first title would be corrected. More content, more rhythm in the fights ... These are all flaws that I found in the first episode and which unfortunately have not been corrected. So what does this new game bring us?

Super Meat Boy Forever Review

The first Super Meat Boy is considered a cult game. Released in 2010 by the Edmund McMillen / Tommy Refenes duet under the “Team Meat” banner, it accompanied the explosion of independent titles, following on from creations like Braid and Castle Crashers . It is unmistakably recognized for its undeniable playing qualities, but also for his iconic status, thanks to his critical and commercial success as well as his appearance in the documentary "Indie Game: The Movie". Anyway, Super Meat Boy is a big chunk. Does his sequel, named “Forever” manage to pick up the torch, despite the departure of Edmund McMillen along the way? The most important first: Super Meat Boy Forever is very different from the original installment and will inevitably disappoint those looking for a faithful sequel, which would take all the cogs imagined by Team Meat at the end of the 2010s. This doesn't make it a bad game (though far from perfect), but you have to be aware of it before you go to the
