Feudal Alloy is a delightful platformer where you play a determined little robot and his fish companion on a quest to save the other robots in the old folks home. It’s also one of the funniest titles that our Modern Gamer has ever come across. Medieval mayhem abounds this week!
Working on the railroad was never so much fun as with Unrailed, a clever building game where you have to deal with outlaws, harsh terrain and supply issues to try and keep your train moving forward through this colorful, procedurally generated world.
Wingspan is a deeply strategic card game about helping wild birds survive and thrive in different habitats. The subject matter should help it appeal to a wide audience of players, while the strategic depth will keep everyone playing and competing.

Break through bricks in space and time in the splashy, neon-drenched arcade classic reborn as Drawkanoid. Play this one for a few minutes on a break, or for hours on end to unwind. It’s arcade action at its best.
Summer in Mara is one of the latest in the series of casual crafting and simulation games like Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon. It’s not a bad game, but doesn’t really do too much to break from the pack. Kind of like the real summer in 2020, its okay, but not nearly the best ever for most people.
Loosely based on a wacky Japanese game show, Fall Guys is taking the world by storm. It offers 60-player pandemonium-fueled multiplayer matches randomly selected from a pool of 20 ridiculous levels. The biggest challenge might be holding back your laughter long enough to seriously compete.
Never Breakup is a game for the Nintendo Switch that is meant to be played with another person sitting right there beside you. Given the pandemic, that wasn’t possible for our reviewer, and playing this one alone is a tough challenge.
