Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince – Demo Review
A few months ago, I reviewed the demo for Trine 2, a side-scrolling puzzle-platformer where you play as three unique characters, Amadeus the wizard, Pontius the knight, and Zoya the thief. Recently, I had the pleasure of playing the demo for the much more recent Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.Continue reading Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince – Demo Review
I’m Still Not a Big Fan of Super Mario 64
I don’t really like Super Mario 64. There, I said it. I understand that the game was a big deal for its time, considering it was one of the first 3D platformers ever made. While that is certainly something to be admired, I never really had the best opinion of this game. In fact, I feel Super Mario 64 might be the reason I bore poor Mario a bit of a grudge over the years. So when I gave it another chance recently thanks to Super Mario 3D All-Stars, was I finally ready to forgive Mario? Keep on reading to find out!Continue reading I’m Still Not a Big Fan of Super Mario 64
Hoa: A Beautiful and Relaxing Platformer
Hoa (pronounced “hwa”) is Vietnamese for “flower” and also the name of a lovely indie game and said game’s titular character, a tiny fairy-like creature the size of a bug. This relaxing game features stunning hand-painted artwork, a beautiful soundtrack, and a peaceful atmosphere where the focus is solely on platforming and minor puzzling. This game only took me about two hours to complete, but it was a delight from start to finish. And I likely would have never given it a chance if it wasn’t recommended to us on Youtube by one of our commenters, Ramona Q.Continue reading Hoa: A Beautiful and Relaxing Platformer
Hoa Playthrough on Virtual Bastion

Joe & Mac: A Prehistoric Blast from the Past
When I was a duckling, my parents were responsible for buying all the games for the SNES. After all, my dad actually got it as some sort of gift from his workplace, and for some inexplicable reason, I was too “afraid” to play any of the games when I was especially young, meaning my parents got the most use out of our first family console. As such, Joe & Mac was just one of a hearty collection of games my parents had accumulated over the years. This game stars the titular cavemen (Mac is only available in two-player), who fight and jump their way through 12 stages swarming with dinosaurs and Neanderthals, each level ending with a climactic battle against some huge prehistoric baddy.Continue reading Joe & Mac: A Prehistoric Blast from the Past
Joe & Mac Playthrough on Virtual Bastion
Joe & Mac is a silly SNES game from the Duck’s childhood where you play as a caveman and fight some odd looking dinosaurs whose necks are made of circles. And a mammoth whose trunk falls off, which is as horrifying as it sounds. You also obtain meat from defeated Neanderthals, so make of that as you will.

Yoku’s Island Express: Demo Review
When I read that Yoku’s Island Express was described as an “open-world pinball adventure”, I had my doubts. I don’t mind pinball in short bursts, but I couldn’t believe they could actually make an engaging “adventure” out of it. But seeing as this was a free demo, I had nothing to lose but time.Continue reading Yoku’s Island Express: Demo Review
