Fossil Echo flattens Shadow of the Colossus down to 2D

Shadow of the Colossus is one of the greatest games of all time, so citing it as a major influence brings a double meaning to "standing on the shoulders of giants." Adding Oddworld as another influence makes me very interest...   more

Since what feels like the dawn of time (or at least shortly after Scorched Earth existed), Worms has been a mainstay of videogames in general. With its odd humor and ridiculous arsenal, it has graced over 25 platforms with i...   more

I see what they did there: Full Bore stars a wild pig

As it turns out, pigs are a lot smarter than we typically give them credit for. That could be the inspiration behind the open-world puzzle platformer Full Bore, which stars a digging boar as it journeys through ancient ruins...   more

Four Sided Fantasy does both sidescrolling and screen wrapping

Way back in the day, most side-view took place on a single screen at a time, and often moving off the edge of one side caused the player to reappear on the other. (See: Joust, Asteroids, Mario Bros.) Then Super Mario Bros. c...   more

Do you dare delve deep down into the Darkest Dungeon?

I will admit: I very nearly skipped over looking into this game after seeing its unappealingly generic title. However, I urge you to not do the same. Darkest Dungeon intends to look at the idea of dungeon crawling from a mor...   more

Chasm is the Metroidvania I've been waiting for
