Into the realm of rogue-like adventure games like ADOM, Shiren the Wanderer, Nethack and others, we can add the delightful Tangledeep, one of the best RPGs of this type that we have ever played. Get tangled up in this great dungeon delver.
We don’t know why the birds are so angry in Blazing Beaks, but they sure have gathered a lot of firepower. The game offers a fairly short stint of fighting levels, but also a nice local co-op mode, plus a lot of replay ability.
Our reviewer is used to translating books he reads from Japanese, but even he was confused at what the Sword and Fairy 6 game was trying to accomplish. The story is a terrible, badly translated jumble, and the graphics, audio and controls are just as rotten.
You will die far more than twice in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a challenging game that has no difficulty setting other than hard. It’s a beautiful tale rooted deeply in Japanese folklore that also looks amazing. If you want some nearly impossible challenges and the resulting rewards, Sekiro is your game.
Billy is heading back to Stardew Valley for a second stay on the farm, but this time he is checking out the mobile version of the game.
A perfect balance between dungeon-running and deck building, Slay the Spire is one of the most unique and fun rogue-like titles that our reviewers have played in a long time. You will easily find yourself delving ever deeper, and trying to build the perfect deck to get you just a little bit further.
This week the Time Waster is all about a mobile MMO Action RPG called Rangers of Oblivion that mimics Monster Hunter to the best of its ability.
Billy’s Time Wasting this week is all about a game called Hazardous Space that tries to mix up the rogue-like genre. But does it succeed?
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is much more than a remake of the classic game from 2008. Instead, it’s the cumulation of new game modes, dungeons, mini-games, sounds, bosses and other extras added over the years. And it has a great new HD look as well, making it one solid package.
Billy’s time wasting this week covers Another Eden: The Cat Beyond Time and Space, which is the best mobile JRPG to date.
