Despite the annoying phone looking screen the story wasn't to bad. The difference between the princess and knight route was pretty interesting to see. Idk whether I would want to carry on though, its hard to judge something like that on something so small and hasn't come out yet

Maybe its the new art but something felt off about this game. I played it ages ago back when it wasn't updated so I think the art is just setting of some sort of weird triggers. This game is much too short to really judge, I didn't mind it but I did all 3 choices in like 6 minutes. I'm not willing to pay for the sequel to see if I actually like it or not

I really hope a full game of this is made because its great. For a game about hide and seek its so mysterious and I want more


Guilt Free

This game isn't bad the 1st time through but afterwards its a drag. This is a story about a man whos partner has an eating disorder. Instead of the usual being the one with it we see his side and how its impacting him. The 1st playthrough as I said was fine, it wasn't a bad game but nothing much changes between the other playthrough that you need to do for achievements. As a serious topic I feel like it shouldn't make you play it more then once, it ruins the message doing so.

Another totally fine game. This has the problem that others do, 1 playthrough is good after that its just a drag. It didn't feel like much changed between each route and while I love finding games with english voice overs I also hate them. I don't like listening to it since its to slow but I hate skipping it since it sounds terrible being cut off.


Little Misfortune

I went in with so much hope and it just didn't live up. I didn't even know it was linked to fran bow until I saw it all and that just made me sad. Fran bow was great this not so much. Its hard to explain but the humour didn't click right. The ending kinda works everything together but it didn't change the fact I spent like 3 hours just following along a stupid crazy story. Stuff like a strip club for hamsters or fawning over a fox wasn't funny to me. The idea of everything going bad around a little girl sounds good but the actual gameplay of it and the weirdness of it all just didn't work. In fact after writing that last sentence I saw a review and I just read it all. I couldn't help but agree, I don't mind dark humour but like I put before it just didn't work in this game, nor did the very adult suggestive jokes.


Lovers of Aether

It's not easy to make me get so disappointed in a game. I had hope for this game and while I loved the different types of animals we could date the rest was boring. I had to manually click through the story instead of using space or enter. Then by the time we finish its just over. We dont get a picture nothing just there sprite in front of a background. They even went through the effort to put little pixel versions of each one you did but why it doesn't do anything but show us the ending screen again.

So I did like 3/4 of this game before giving up. Honestly I got lost very quickly, I didn't get what was going on so I just went through the boring motions.


Pleasure Puzzle:Portrait

1.2 hours, 100 of 100 achievements

Click to expand

This puzzle game isnt bad, the pictures are nice and I like the fact you can choose how many pieces but at the end of the day its still just puzzles. If you need help you can right click and it will show their number position, I used that in the end when collecting the last couple of pieces but even if I didn't come across it by accident it wouldn't have changed much. I did get this when it was free for a short time so cant complain about the price which is pretty cheap compared to what I just dealt with on ppu


Smile For Me

This game was alright, idk if there's a time limit but I managed mine in 10 days which is plenty of time with everyone saying they did stuf in like 5. I liked the people we met and while it took a while I learned you can speed up time which is handy to have since quite a few people unlock the next day after you achieve a certain goal. I cant really say if it has any replay value I don't care about that, I had fun


Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

When I saw this was a completely different game to the 1st one I was disappointed. I liked the original and I'm not a big fan of the 2.5d style. I felt like I may as well be finishing crash instead of this nonsense. It's still not my favourite but it wasn't as bad as it could've been. I can understand why people prefer this, its more busy. Before we had a couple of enemies with a giant empty area. Now there's not much of that, there's some sort of obstacle or enemy in your way. You can make the game easier on yourself at the cost of your quills or just make it silly with different colours.

This game was much easier and quicker. I was able to fly through the main levels that the main hassle was just the coins. The coins aren't that hard once you know where they are but some of them were in these annoying positions that you had to be perfect to get or have to restart. With checkpoints in this game though it wasn't like you had to really reset and I probably just ignored it but I saw no reason to just survive instead of offing yourself a 1000 times to get that 1 coin!

Storywise is again barely there. The story really isn't the main priority in these games, its all about the areas and collecting. Since this had so much stuff you don't really notice the fact there's none, frankly if you are good enough at this game you could easily beat it without even playing anything. You even get an ending for beating the final area without dying and its quite good actually even if I'll never do it!

Overall I still prefer the 1st game but this wasn't as bad. Maybe I went into it being too negative but I didn't mind my time playing it. I enjoyed how they made this game work by giving us alt worlds. If you want to ignore the slow burn that the original is then you can pick this up perfectly fine, sure you might miss a couple of bits here and there but nothing major.

So I played through this game twice, the 1st time I was so bad that I lost track of the criminal and the 2nd time I found them but failed to pick the right choice. Frankly I don't think this was worth trying again, idk what choice is the correct one and I don't want to repeat the same couple of choices to find out there's not really an ending at all

I felt like I missed something because I'm not totally sure on what was happening. It was boring and just yeah…


Swiper

I'm classing this as beaten because I just got broken up with to many damn times to just class as dropped. This game proves I suck at love, I was too sweet 2 times, I was to cool another but then too lame. I was too funny I cant do it. I made it to 8 days and no more I suck

I wasn't totally sure about using the key for this game but I'm glad I did. It was so cute and fun that I beat it all in 1 go. My little knight rock protected his king!


Antadin DX

This is suppose to be like an hour game but I couldn't make it past the 2nd area. The story didn't suck me in enough to carry on and the gameplay was boring. I'm pretty sure I picked up 2 characters I could've killed instead and while they are weak why kill them? Youre stuck with only 1 attacker otherwise and the enemies do way too much damage even for the 4 people I had

I tried to go through this whole thing because of what it is but it was awkward trying to get to each part. This is suppose to be telling about tragic event ages ago but I've never heard of it. From what I saw I think it was a good thing but it was just a bit to awkward to go through, I wish I could've read about it and then look at the people instead of having to do it altogether


Dear Devere

This story is told in letters and spoken in english. The little bit I heard wasn't bad but its way to slow for me to follow. As soon as I muted it I just lost all interest. I see there are multiple endings but I got into part 2 and saw nothing to suggest any choices.


Ishmael

They claim its like 15 minutes to read through but I couldn't do it. I struggled reading it as it was and it just didn't interest me for what I saw. It has mixed reviews so idk if its even worth it


Red Spider: Vengeance

0.3 hours, no achievements

Click to expand

I went into this expecting it to be bad and when pressing config broke the game it just didn't help its case. However what I read wasn't bad, nothing great but I expected worse. I liked the woman we had control of but honestly I don't see myself trying to go for all 6 routes. I don't like leaving games with just 1 route done so I feel like its best to just not carry on. I also struggled with the no faced people, they introduced so many characters and I cant pin point who is who


Rising Angels: Reborn

0.4 hours, no achievements

I admittedly didn't give this game that much of a chance, I got up to the 1st important choice and decided to look some stuff up. This was suppose to have other games but it just doesn't. The one it does have looks nothing like this one and is apparently a prequel by the looks of it instead of the sequel being shown years ago. Honestly I feel like space stuff just doesn't click with me. Every one I've done so far involving space just wasn't the best. If I brought it I probably wouldn't have given up so fast but since I didn't I jumped as soon as I lost interest


6 of these games might be dropped but I'm happy with my progress. At the moment I currently have 24 games in my won't play list accounting for 3% total and I should have some more for the next review at the end of the month. I've really just focused on the free games theme this month and I've got a bunch more downloaded also free. It's a good way to get a lot of progress done while also cleaning my backlog up.

I did Smile for Me in… 15 days. So I think 10 days is pretty neat! A lot of things confused me tons. :P

Also, is it me or your BLAEO profile shows most of your games as “never played”?

Cece09

oh no you aren’t crazy. I’m sorting them out which is why its like that. easier for me with it there instead of sorting through it on steam

aonrao

Oh good! I thought something was wrong with BLAEO
