Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Friends to the End

It's no small secret that I'm in love with the Shantae series. I was immediately taken in by the magnetic characters, brilliant music and retro adventure action. The WayForward developed franchise marries the gameplay of classic platformers...

WayForward's The Mummy Demastered looks fantastic

Truth be told, I forgot WayForward was adapting The Mummy (2017) into a delightful-looking metroidvania. I never saw the movie and possibly never will. But this game? This game looks rad. Demastered is a licensed title that's unafraid to b...

Stranger Things season one retold through pixel art

Stranger Things is one of those rare instances where the hype was fully justified. It successfully milked my ’80s nostalgia by invoking the spirit of films like The Goonies and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial without ever feeling downright...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...
