    It’s the third game from the famous (in Russia) point’n’click series. It’s pretty funny at times and doesn’t reuse anything (like the second one did) except for some voice lines from previous games. It features hint system that just straight up tells you what to do, so you won’t get stuck even on the dumbest puzzles here. I kinda miss the UI from the first part though, even if it was harder to use.
    The audio quality wasn’t changed at all and sound like shit pretty much all the times. There were a few weird moments where they didn’t have Pete actor nearby or whatever and some random voice actor fills in for him.
    AFAIK, it was the last good game from the franchise (there were four more, or even more than that). It’s pretty good but, again, won’t be as fun to play if you’re not familiar with russian culture and its’ (heavily caricaturized) view of western culture.

    This is an h-shmup where you shoot up anime girls’ clothes and if you beat three shmup levels, you get an animated h-scene.
    …what have I become?

    And here comes my (yet another) descent, this time I’m gonna explore the Vampire Survivors rip-offs’ world.
    This one does everything in a pretty similar way. The biggest differences is that you can choose a class for your hero and that you’re not really limited while choosing your weapons and skill. All the heroes can get the same weapons and skills besides their unique one. It’s a somewhat weird desicion, but if you don’t want to think about the strategy too much, it may be better for you.
    Otherwise, it’s all pretty similar. Of course there’s not even a fraction of amount of content VS had, there’s only four levels and much fewer heroes to choose from. Either way, it did its’ thing and I wasted a good amount of hours on it.

    The sequel of RtMI turned out to be much harder than its predecessor. The puzzles are much more difficult, there’s quite a few minigames and new unneccessary interactions, like fishing, getting food and setting up relationships with island’s monkeys. You can also play as Jep now.
    You spend the first third of a game in familiar locations, but then you unlock a new part of the island, almost as big as the first one.
    The second game is not all comfy survival and crafting. There’s still a lot of that, but now the situation is as dangerous as ever and you can die quite a few times.
    While some of the puzzles were way too obtuse for me, I still really liked that played it to its conclusion.
