Axiom Verge certainly looks enticing on Switch

While it was not so surprising that Axiom Verge would be making the jump to the Switch, what is super neat is that developer Thomas Happ Games has partnered with BadLand Games to create a physical edition of the game for consoles. Dubbed th...


Sonic Mania has a not so nostalgic price

Remember when games used to launch on the SNES and Genesis for $70? Cartridges were expensive, guys! I know I bought Shadows of the Empire in 1997 for about $75, so the whole argument of games being more expensive now a days is baloney. Tha...


Awesomenauts is now free-to-play on Steam

With 330 hours on my account, it feels utterly strange coming back to Awesomenauts after a long hiatus. I remember Clunk being my bestie, and not much else. There's a handful of characters I don't even recognize, which is frightening in a t...


The PC version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is out June 8

Watching this PC trailer for Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap makes me want to play through the entire thing again. Lizardcube did such a good job on this remaster, knowing just what to update and what to leave alone. I'm thankful the studio ...


Blasphemous is another action-platformer to watch

Having seen a few early gifs here and there, I've been waiting for a good opportunity to talk about Blasphemous. The now-live Kickstarter campaign will do just fine in that respect. This is a brutal-looking 2D action-platformer from The Ga...


Mighty Gunvolt Burst announced for Switch and 3DS

As revealed in the new issue of Famitsu, Inti Creates is prepping another Mighty Gunvolt. This new project, Mighty Gunvolt Burst, is headed to both Nintendo Switch and 3DS (the system is still hanging in there!). It'll have Gunvolt and Migh...


Starbound is getting custom space stations soon

Starbound is getting a new update that will allow for player created space stations. Using a snap module, players will be able to pick from a selection of different options to craft their very own home away from home. You'll start the proce...


Awesomenauts is going free-to-play at last

On May 24, the 2D MOBA Awesomenauts is finally, thankfully going free-to-play. That's a while from now, though. Why make the announcement so early? Ronimo is gearing up for the free-to-play transition with a beta update for current players ...


Review: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

The Wonder Boy series has sort of a complicated history. Several different franchises have claimed at least one of the series' titles, including Wonder Boy, Monster Land, and even Adventure Island. The Wonder Boy games were always conf...


Sega unleashes a trio of Sonic Forces trailers

While I vaguely remember Sega renaming this year's 3D Sonic game to Sonic Forces, I can't recall when that happened. I suppose I'm just so much more interested in Sonic Mania that I've almost blocked Forces out of my mind. The small bit we ...


Cave Story creator's Kero Blaster out on PS4 next week

Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya is bringing the amphibian action-platformer Kero Blaster to PlayStation 4 on Tuesday, April 11. Like some of his other non-Cave Story games, it's a name you might've heard mentioned before but never sought out, and if ...


Review: Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park was Kickstarted back in 2014 and promised a brand new game in an old genre, a return to the classic point-and-click adventure titles produced by LucasArts in the late '80s and early '90s. The title has an impeccab...


Insect adventure Hollow Knight releasing next week

Team Cherry's Hollow Knight has come up a few times on Destuctoid these past couple years, and now we're in the home stretch. The 2D action-adventure game for PC and Mac is out on February 24, 2017. The launch trailer is a great refresher....


Review: Bleed 2

When Bleed came out in 2012, it was a great throwback to run-and-gun platformers of the late '80s and early '90s like Contra and Metal Slug. The sequel looks a lot better, builds on the foundation established in the first game beautifu...


Adult Swim-backed run and gun Rise & Shine looks slick

Rise and shine: it's not just something I put off doing each and every morning. It's also a video game -- an eye-catching run-and-gun published by Adult Swim Games, in fact -- that's coming to PC and Xbox One on January 13, 2016. "Rise" is...


Review: Exile's End

There was once a time when 2D games were the tentpole releases that companies pumped out to make the big bucks. Those days are long gone, but the sidescrollers live on and are a staple in today's landscape thanks to indie developers. The in...


Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap continues to look lovely

I will seize any opportunity to bring up Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, a gorgeous remake of Wonder Boy III from Lizardcube, and today's developer chat with the original creator fits that simple criteria. "In July we went to Kyoto to demo ...
