Foxes lair Kyrrelin’s profile

This little Fox hoarded many games. She wants to play all ot them, but her negative point is that she ends up playing the same games over and over again... Yes, Mass Effect, Witcher and Dragon Age, we are talking about you!
Also Steamgifts wins deserves more attention!


Lets do something about it, so even other games get equally played.

Game lists

I have started to mark my done games at the end of 2018. Those before I don't really remember, but thanks to some tracking sites I was able to recover games with achievements, but sadly only them and only on Steam. There is a lot of games without them that I just don't remember when they were played, so the stats are not perfectly accurate.

Didn’t played much as Mass Effect is still taking most of my time or I am too busy with real life to play. Also got my 5000th achievement (according to Completionist.me). :)

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

Betty is away in Europe, already some time has passed since her last message and hints about her whereabouts point towards small secluded Norway village. Our hero Edward Charles Harden, greatly worried about her, sets on an adventure to find her. He is not alone on this quest, a young woman, Lissie, is accompanying him. She is energetic, spontaneous and full of advice and comments no one asked for. ;) She is Edwards opposite.
As they arrive at the village, they are welcomed by empty houses and incoming storm. Even though Edward is invited to stay with one local family, he is rather reluctant to enter their house. Falling darkness, starting rain and pushy Lissie force him inside though. There he finds what he's looking for, proof of Bettys presence! Now he need to wait until the morning to properly search for her.
But the new day brings just more questions and no answers. What happened in the village? Where is everyone? Was Betty even here?

Draugen is a mysterious narrative walking simulator. Graphics are strange, a little blurry, suggesting an artistic piece. Walking around and sightseeing is very pretty, reminding me of Someday you'll return. Soundtrack is beautiful, calm and sets a great atmosphere. Voice acting is excellent and I loved to listen to our main duo. Story is… well, linear. You can walk around, take a rest and draw pictures of your surroundings. Certain places trigger conversations, which can shed some light on events that happened in the village, but they are not mandatory for finishing the story.

I liked the game, there was this eerie feeling, uncertainty of what's really going on there. If you have some experience with similar stories you can predict the outcome a little, which wasn't a letdown as it was implemented nicely and still offered some surprises. What was somewhat disappointing is that you are left in the darkness in the end. You know nothing, John Snow… Gah, I just want to know more of what happened, to the villagers, to Edward, to Lissie… everything is just hinted at, you are given a hypothesis and that's it. The end. For me, unsatisfying.

The end promises that Edward and Lissie will be back and I would love to see that as I have rather enjoyed it, but I am sceptical towards it. There is a prequel comic on Steam coming soon, for two years already. Apparently it was available on the consoles, but not on the PC. Shame really as the story has a great potential for longer series.

Pixel Puzzles: Japan

Simple puzzles with nice Japanese atmosphere.

350 pieces was a little bit painful for the eyes, but it could be from playing on a laptop with a smaller screen.

Half-Life 2

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart

3/5

15 of 15 achievements

Very good hidden object game with "Pirates of the Caribbean" feeling. Puzzles were not ridiculously hard, but a few have even offered a challenge. Hidden object scenes were nice and without any mistakes or troubles. Story is okay, with few little weak spots, but overall enjoyable.

Graphics are nice, colorful and full of life. Only downgrade are cutscenes which are of horrible quality. Another weak point is forced second playthrough when you aim for 100% achievements as you have to complete all hidden object scenes and you also have to complete all substitute mahjong games which you can't obtain during one playthrough.

Half-Life 2

The Walking Dead: Michonne

2.5/5
3.8 hours
21 of 21 achievements

Short excursion into Walking Dead universe with Michonne as the main protagonist. I am not familiar with the comics or the series so I can't compare storyline, characters and other similarities.

I liked Michonne, she is a badass character. Others are of standard cast with cliche personalities, which is getting disappointing, nothing will surprise you and you can very well say how each of them will act. It can be clearly seen because the game is so short, there is not enough time for some deeper development and you can't properly connect to anyone besides Michonne. Storytelling is the same as with other games from Telltale, this time though it feels even weaker as the choices you make are unimportant. Not that I think it's done in any different way with Clementine games, but as they are longer they offer better complexity after all. Also I am not particularly fond of the route the game forces you into, if I could I would choose a completely different way.
I have enjoyed it, but I wouldn't mind if it was a little bit longer and presented a more captivating story (the beginning was good, different setting then in the other two games, but then it's just the same good old song).

Graphics are again in a comic design and truly suit the game. Music is good. As the servers were put down the community choices aren't showing anymore, you have to download a file which the game no longer generates and voila, it works again! Process described on the forum.

Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

115.6 hours
4.5/5

Different addition to the Heroes of Might and Magic series. This time you have a strategy RPG mixed with puzzles and match 3 battles. And all of it works perfectly. Although the gameplay is in theory still the same = repetitive, it's actually rather addictive and variable as the battles are changing, developing and can get pretty challenging. Diversion to the main story lines are bounty quests, puzzle challenges and artifacts scattered around. Also you can skip random fight encounters if you don't want to waste time with small fishes, but they are good sport to get your units leveled up.

Story will put you in the shoes of five heroes (Anwen, Godric, Fiona, Aidan and Nadia) and their sidekicks as they struggle to save the world from destruction. This way you will play with every faction - elves, humans, undead, demons and wizards; so you can nicely enjoy the diverse tactics the different armies offer.

Story is okay, nothing too surprising. Graphics are very nice, suiting the younger heroes. Fights are fun and quite enjoyable.
Weakest point is the last campaign (wizards), it doesn't offer any bounties or puzzles, it's quite rushed and Nadia is an unappealing heroine. Also, there can be some problems with optimizing, changing the compatibility to Win7 helped. Multiplayer was supposed to get shut down at the 1st June, but it will stay alive… for now at least, bear it in mind if you aim for 100%.

I wouldn't mind seeing some similar addition to the HoMM series again, be it prequel, sequel or with some different heroes.



Half-Life 2

The Fog: Trap for Moths

1/5
4.0 hours
no achievements

Mother and her daughter are enjoying a road trip together when their car gets sabotaged and they crash (if the mother would drive more carefully and slowly in the rain (!) their car wouldn't end up in the forest...). As mother regains consciousness she realizes that her daughter is gone and mysterious fog is slowly spreading around. Can a mother find her daughter sooner than something horrible happens to her? And what else will she uncover in the fog?

Oh well, a lot of mothers and daughters here…

Mediocre HOG. No voice acting so the cutscenes felt somewhat hollow. Sometimes you search for completely different items in the hidden object scenes. Lots of backtracking. Few times it wasn't clear what to do next. Story is… weak, not very captivating. There is apparently game breaking bug, which we were lucky to miss though. :P

Half-Life 2

Lost Civilization

2.5/5
3.6 hours
no achievements

Playing this I had terrible Déjà vu. Exactly the same pictures, same lines… I was so sure that I had already played it… and yes, I did. But not this game.

Lost Civilization is a HOG remake of a classic adventure game NiBiRu: Age of Secrets, with a slightly different approach - main characters got swapped and you are playing as a woman. But you will see the same scenes (graphically remade to suit the HOG genre better), characters and lines, even some of the puzzles are the same.
I am not sure if it's because I know the original game, but the story feels rushed and a little inconsistent. Also the voice acting is pretty strange - one line is voiced, the other two not and so on. All in all it wasn't so bad.

During May I managed to beat first Mass Effect and almost got to the end of the second. Letting some of the achievements for my soulmate to obtain in the second run. ;)

I am a big fan of the series, so I am truly enjoying it. First game really deserved the improvement in the textures, also squadmates got rather clever and can manage pretty well without me. Sometimes there is nothing left to shoot at for me. XD
There are few slight mishaps, nothing serious, mostly laughable matters.



Nothing new as I can't be adding more of Mass Effect... I have almost all of the squad now. I tried to take same shots as before so you can compare them to those I took from the orginal games (modded).

April 2021 report


Not that many games played during April. Played Shadow Tactic a lot and that’s basically it.

To keep my game libraries neat and organized I have also made separate tables for Uplay and Origin, feel free to check it out.

You can find all three tables for GoG, Uplay and Origin on my profile with corresponding progress bars. I have also added a Steam progress bar for better comparison. Not sure yet how often it will be actualized.

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

Absolutely amazing game! One of my favorites!

I am not really in the mood to write something more, so I will just say that I love this game. Great story and characters, amazing soundtrack and graphics!!!
My playtime counts for three playthroughs - first one, second to obtain badges, third for hardcore run. Some of the badges were paint to get, but I have enjoyed pushing my limits!

Can’t wait for the new standalone chapter about Aiko! Hope to see one for every character one day.

Cooking Academy Fire and Knives

3/5
18.7 hours
no achievements

It's a compilation of three games in which you continuously master your cooking skills. You have set of restaurants with different recipes, first you learn the process of preparing the food, after you gain enough stars you can take exams - you are not making the whole meal again, just one specific part from the preparation process. Good thing is that even in exams you are still shown how to make the food, so you don't have to completely memorize it.
You can see the progress in the series, be it in graphics or mechanics. Each meal also has a short intro about its history.

We have enjoyed these cooking lessons, mastering some recipes was a true challenge. ;) It was suitable for short playing times when you don't want to think much.

Half-Life 2

My Jigsaw Adventures - A Lost Story

4/5
11.0 hours
32 of 32 achievements

Next game in My Jigsaw Adventures series with new story that unfolds with each puzzle. As with the first game, the pictures are truly beautiful (you can download them again) and music is very pleasant, creating a nice atmosphere. It's great game to relax after long day.

You can customize the game to your liking with a background picture / color, add a grid, select where your puzzle pieces are stocked, play in challenge mode… You can pick a mosaic, traditional or arrow shape (love this one). In the first game the biggest puzzle had 220 pieces, now you can select a puzzle with 500 and even 1000 pieces. For me it's too much, but luckily no achievement is tied to them, so you are not forced to suffer. ;)

In addition to story mode you will open special puzzles which are smaller but have twists to them. Picture is in black and white, upside down or you have a time limit to solve the puzzle and more.

I have really enjoyed both the standard game and the special puzzles. Will keep my eyes on the series for sure.

No longer on Steam, but you can find it under shorter name: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1096950/Psycho_Train/.

It's an okay hidden object game, sometimes it wasn't very clear on what to do next, but I didn't got stuck for too long. Game is linear with small independent locations. Story follows mother searching for her daughter in twisted space of mad railman. You and your daughter aren't his only victims so you will encounter some of them and help them (somewhat). Have to say that the disturbing feeling was nicely done, some of the graphics were little unsettling.

The ending is vague and I am not sure how exactly it ended.


Nothing new.

I have three Assassins games on Steam, but I plan to play them on Uplay. So once I am done with them, I will mark them accordingly in the Steam backlog. Also seems like Uplay doesn’t show any playtime, so I will try to mark it when I will be playing from now on.

February / March 2021 report


Played a lot of different games these two months. Apart from my usual challenges, we picked some already beaten games and completed them. I am happy with the progress on them. Also, skipped next Play or Pay as I have many games selected which pile up, so I want to work on them a little (some got selected twice already). And Mass Effect is coming out in May and I will sink all my time into it and it wouldn’t be fair of me to ask for it to be picked or me ignoring other picks because of it. Here I just hope to come back next quarter, it all depends on how many games I can play.

Played some games on GOG too. Caesar III, Pharaon&Cleopatra and Eschalon. I would like to complete Mass Effect: Andromeda before playing the Legendary Edition in May too.

I have created table of my GOG games and divided them so I can keep better track of how I play them. Feel free to check it here in my separate post.

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

It's simple.

You are on the highest floor of an expensive hotel when the world turns upside down. To have some chance for survival you have to get out. All it requires is to go through 100 floors.

Now the hard side.

Each step costs you 1 hunger point, so you better search other hotel rooms for some food or things that can be turned into food. Beware the ripped ones or you want to get sick? You have nothing else to eat? Hard choice then, eat it and risk losing some health points or slowly starve to death (no food means -1 point of health each step).
What about those monsters in the rooms? Well, you can run away from them… if they let you. What about the monsters blocking your way on the stairs? Hm, is the elevator functioning? If you are lucky, you can go around them, if you are unlucky, you have to fight them. Again, it would be wise to search the rooms for any items that can be used as weapons or turned into weapons in your president suite. Don't get fooled by those weak monsters at the beginning, bring some serious stuff with you to the lower floors.
You got hurt in the fight? Quickly, use medkit, pills, bandages… anything! You have nothing? Oh my… go into your room to sleep then. And pray that your doors are secure enough to protect you from uninvited visitors… they can eat your food, steal your best weapon, destroy random items, cause that you lose more health than you gain….

You are still alive?
Just 10 floors to the main entrance?
Wanna tell me of the horrors you have seen? No.. okay, I understand. Some serious stuff going on here. Okay then, good luck.
Just… just be careful that the RNG God doesn't kick your right between your eyes.

Oh well, who am I fooling around. It will happen. More than once.
Be prepared.


Great game. I have really enjoyed it, although it can be pretty frustrating, especially when you are going for the hardcore run (see my screenshots). But I have never rage quitted and still pushed for more. There are a lot of things that you can uncover. I am still not sure what is the truth here. Also the modes and perks you open offer great replayability!

An excellent game in all of its aspects! It has beautiful graphics, charming soundtrack, great captivating story, well written characters. Great combat that didn't felt too grindy even on expert difficulty.

I have enjoyed every minute of the game! Just one tiny little complaint, sometimes I have found the main heroine a little bit childish and I didn't agree with some of her opinions. But that's all. :)

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

~~Gladiator (2000, Ridley Scott)


I love that movie. And I love this game! It has an amazing atmosphere, the ancient Rome is dripping from everything in the game. Great graphics and fitting music helps a lot in this. Intense fights offer great challenge and reward you with awesome executions! It's a joy, believe me.
Story is simple and linear, but that's how it should be. Everything else would distract you from your ultimate goal - your revenge, oh and saving Rome of course. Marius is a great character, true born hero and general. Others are also interesting! Commodus is such a jerk, argh, I hate him in the Colosseum! (That's a good point.)

There are three kinds of collectibles to be found, which offer insight on the characters and history facts. And even though the game is linear, some of those items are hidden pretty well! Good thing is, that you can see missing items, so you can then replay just that part of the story.

Fights are simple. You have a sword, shield and pilum at your disposal. You can also fill your focus meter which then lets you use extra helpful skills. But you have to be vigilant and not rush to the fight as the right timing is the key to your success. Truth is that you will best learn this when doing the Legendary run and fighting the Commodus in the arena. Well, the whole Legendary difficulty requires every bit of your concentration. But it's great fun and I have felt amazing after each won battle!
Checkpoints are great as there are a lot of them, really a lot of them! So you never redo some large segments of the story and you never became frustrated by the loss.

After completing the game through and through, you can then compete in the Colosseum!!! It's a multiplayer part of the game. But! Interesting thing is, there are maps that you can do solo! Yay. So I have opened some of the achievements and I feel pretty proud for some of the runs. Also I am tempted to ask one friend to play it with me, because I really like this game, but I have never played multiplayer with someone… I am a little bit shy. X)

Anyway, it's an amazing game, worth every bit of your money! Can't recommend it enough!



Half-Life 2

LUXOR: 5th Passage

1/5
14.5 hours
no achievements

Not my type of game at all.
This time I have played on easy difficulty to not stress myself much with it… didn't work out the way I wanted.
I have noticed that there were somewhat three types of difficulty through the game. First is main, easy difficulty slightly rising up. Second, on people choice stages high rise up in difficulty in comparison to normal stages. And then there was one stage which was extremely slow due to wrong code setting, only that one stage took around 40 minutes to go through… and it repeated. That was really painful. Very very much. You can't even quit, because it will only reset your progress and you have to make the stage from the beginning (Luxor HD remembered where you ended). I have considered changing the difficulty to medium as this bug was only on easy, but I wasn't sure if I would need to play it whole from the start… so I just put up with the ordeal.
Visuals and music are okay, but get quickly repetitive. Different music is only in People choice stages. Some of the bonuses you can use are great (like scorpion), some of them are useless (Spike Ball, pretty much Black Hole etc.). In game achievements are crazy and can't imagine opening them all. Lucky that they are not on Steam.

4/5

Replayed this for the few missing achievements and two additional DLCs which added new story, environment, enemies, equipment, dungeoneers and rune system.
Still very funny and enjoyable, even on complete second playthrough.

Half-Life 2

Small Town Terrors: Livingston

2/5
3.2 hours
no achievements

First game in the series "Small Town Terrors" - young family is passing through Livingston city when they get into car accident. Mother is injured and when she wakes up in the hospital her husband and daughter are nowhere to be seen, also the city is strangely deserted, filled with weird noise and creatures. What’s going on? That’s up to you to find out!

It has somewhat outdated visuals, but at the same time it offers a good atmosphere of a B-rated Zombie movies. Story is told through newspaper articles and messages from the city residents, still it felt a little bit weak in some moments. No voice acting, although sometimes it's actually a better choice. Puzzles and hidden object scenes were okay and I have liked the principle of health limit for progression in the story. The huge backtracking required throughout the game decreases the overall rating. Also there were situations where it wasn't clear on what to do or I was trying to make some action sooner than it was demanded so I got confused. Only ingame achievements.
Game is short, but for a quick evening playtime it's suitable.

Half-Life 2

Small Town Terrors Pilgrim's Hook Collector's Edition

3/5
5.6 hours
no achievements

Second game in the series "Small Town Terrors" - Vera is going back to her birthplace after disturbing call from her twin brother, when she arrives on the island dark secrets begin to uncover. The fate of the island and it's few inhabitants is now in her hands.

Overall improvement to the first game. Better graphics and even voice acting. Story is strange, somewhat interesting, but in the end there are things unanswered. Nice variation of puzzles and hidden object scenes. As you progress through the story the whole area remains open, sometimes you go way back to find items or to solve puzzles. At least map teleports you this time and when playing on easy difficulty you can see where some interaction is required. There are hidden collectibles to be found and after the completion of the main story you can access bonus chapter and also bonus hidden game. Achievements are only in game, but easy to get.

Half-Life 2

Small Town Terrors: Galdor's Bluff Collector's Edition

4/5
4.1 hours
no achievements

Last game in the series "Small Town Terrors" (my version is no longer on Steam, but apparently it’s getting released again so you can see the store page) - you are invited to the performance of Thurman the Magnificent as he suspects a sabotage will happen. Indeed, his performance turns to a horrible conclusion. Your investigation will be shrouded in magic and illusion, you have to stay vigilant as the truth is hidden right before your eyes.

The Prestige

Nice graphics, music and good voice acting. Varied puzzles and hidden object scenes. Story is really interesting with good twists. Again hidden collectibles to be found, bonus chapter after the end of the main story and solitaire games (you can switch hidden object scenes to it). Achievements are only in game, but they can be easily obtained. Even the one where you have to play one successful game of solitaire (you can do it from the bonus menu, not necessarily instead of the HOG).

I consider it the best game from the trilogy.

Half-Life 2

Voodoo Garden

3/5
15.4 hours
33 of 33 achievements

In this clicker game you take care of a Voodoo garden. You have to fill it with different kinds of trees, bushes and flowers. You will have to guard your crops carefully as hungry little bats will try to steal from you and only you can drive them off. Your garden will be also populated by different kinds of animals - like snakes, lizards, frogs. You need to collect them for resources too. Ceremonial totems will help you to lure more of them to your garden. Your helpers are ghosts from animals that you have to sacrifice first - chicken, rabbit, pig and turtle. They gather the fruit, leaves, nuts etc. for you and also make it grow quicker.

As you collect the ingredients you are automatically creating Voodoo items - potions and dolls. Each level up gives you a different item for your garden or new recipe. You have to set preference for the potions created to make the new better one which also brings more cash. With the money you generate you can then level up every single thing in your garden, that way you will raise the whole efficiency. Higher levels are pretty expensive. Crocodile and skull rising from the water at times offer little help with funds, you have to be quick though as they don't stay there for long.

Graphics are very cute, music fine (even though I think it's only one track). It's a nice game to play when you want to chill out. My biggest complaint is that you have to click for yourself a lot. Your ghosts collect only crops from plants and they are rather slow. You have to catch all of the animals by yourself, as their parts are needed for more expensive Voodoo products. Also they are not collecting when the game is closed, this is done better in Plantera where you raise a certain amount of cash. You have to work hard to gain 30 levels.

Half-Life 2

911 Operator

3.5/5
22.7 hours
18 of 18 achievements

In 911 you take up a role of an emergency operator, on your shifts you have to solve the incoming calls and deal with any reports showing up on your screen. Sounds easy? You can be sure that it will get pretty hectic.

In story mode you go through different cities which have different main "cases" to them. I really liked that, as it offered a diversion from the same cases. You have at your disposal police, firemen and medic units. Different vehicles require different size of squads, so you have to plan your orders as you can't send one policeman on a bicycle to solve the bank robbery. You can equip your squads with items that raise their stats, each person can have only two of them and some are locked to their specific occupation.

You can play in any city you want (if the system can find its map), so that's nice. But after you play through the story mode, it's all the same - I have played this first and then the "Single city run" and it was pretty long for my taste. Also, I was quite sad that I didn't raise enough funds to buy that helicopter! There were always more important things to acquire. ;)

Respect to all who do this hard work, as I wouldn't be able to do it. There were cases that I have chosen bad advice which then led to worse outcome, even someone's death.

Half-Life 2

Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade

2/5
14.4 hours
17 of 17 achievements

I am torn apart on this one. There were some interesting moments, but as a whole it doesn't work out much for me. Also, it reminded me a lot of Solstice, another visual novel with similar graphics. For a moment I thought it's from the same creators, but it's not.
Both these experiences just proves that these kind of visual novels aren't up my taste.

The lore of the world is interesting. Graphics are… well, for me it's strange. I like the background pictures more than the sprites, as they are very realistic. Too much for me. Also, same as with Solstice, their mouths are moving and emotions change rapidly as they talk, but it's not voiced. You have to pick what you will follow - grimaces or text first?

There are five main characters you will interact with, each one of them has their own motives and problems, as you progress you get to uncover them. Serious subjects are mentioned, but all are just barely touched and their potential will not be fulfilled. Which is a shame.
Character development doesn't make sense sometimes and one particular moment I have found hard to believe. Consistency of the story also isn't the best one, as some of the choices you make are ignored and later the game interprets completely different one. That's unfair. Don't offer choices if you don't plan to implement them further in the story. End seemed to be rather rushed and maybe even incomplete.
(Also, one of the girls is in game named Darina, on the card is her name Ruth… that confused me a little when I was searching in guide for some answers on this character - when you check videos on youtube you will find both variants).

Whole game consists of five chapters, second and third were best I would say. There is some kind of romance, but you don't have the last word in this, you are just an observer. As an addition to a simple visual novel gameplay you have an adventure element of collecting items and combining them. There are also action parts which work nicely. But even if all of this charmed me, even if you can see all the work behind it (they made a huge work on it, no doubts!), I just have not enjoyed it. The story didn't pull me inside enough.

More games of the same universe were planned, but looks like nothing will come out of it. Which is partly sad, as the lore, story and whole game had some potential.

December 2020 / January 2021 report

So it’s behind us. Have to say that December turned into a productive month, although it didn’t look like it at the beginning. :)
January turned to be a month of completion of the leftovers, but some other games got played too. Also we are now playing Van Helsing in coop and it’s a huge time sink. ;)

We have completed / beaten a lot of games this year (76 total - here you can see some of my stats), but also acquired much more of them… I wanted to hold new games under 100, failed, at least it wasn’t more than in 2019. So this “challenge” still stays.

Maybe I have said that last year, but we are concentrating mostly on Steam games. Partly because it’s my largest and my main library, but also because I participate in many challenges… but it frustrates me as I am not working on my GoG, Origin or Uplay games… seems as if I can’t play games if I am not challenged for them.

Also, after playing visual novel after a long time, I have realized I actually miss them. So we would like to play at least one a month… we will start with those unfinished though. And not all of them are on Steam, so it won’t help my Steam progress (again, concentrating on it), but my game library will be happy… I think.

One last note, you can find my reviews on Steam if you’d like to mark them as helpful. ;)

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

This is simply art. Stunning in all of its aspects.

Beautiful visuals and captivating soundtrack will fill your soul with a lot of emotions, be it sadness, anger, fear or happiness. Instead of words the game uses metaphors and assimilations for its storytelling and it's sufficient. Words would maybe prove as a disturbing element, like this you have to concentrate on the changes in the music, color, your movement… like this you can immerse yourself in the game.

Gameplay wise it reminded me little of Degrees of Separation, you gain new abilities in each of the worlds which are then used to overcome the obstacles. Puzzles are nice, some of them a little challenging. Although the game is linear the world itself is filled with many interactive elements which nicely complement the whole atmosphere. I just love everything about Gris. Can't recommend it enough.


Little Koa is growing up on a small island in the middle of Mara. She is alone now, tending to her island but dreaming about exploring the whole world and becoming a pirate one day! When she finds a strange little creature on the beach her days of loneliness are over. With her new friend, Napopo, she set sails to the vast Mara seas. Koa will then meet different kinds of people with their own dreams, problems or old pains and although she is only a kid, she will do everything in her power to help them.

Summer in Mara is a farming simulator game where you have your own island to take care of. As you progress in the story you will be able to build various structures on it - for example decorations or animal enclosures; cultivate many kinds of vegetables and fruits or plant new species of trees or shrubs. There is a lot you can do in Mara - you can harvest crops, create new items for sale or for manufacturing, go fishing or diving, pick up trash, cook various dishes or you can pat animals. :) I have very much enjoyed developing my island, it's nice to see it grow (not in terms of size).
Exploration is another important part of the game, you can find a lot of new things on your travels (people really throw interesting stuff to the ocean). Also it's a great boost to your income as you can harvest wild crops and then sell it for profit without additional spend.

Story is simple but really nice. It's about growing up, going after your own dreams and trying to be a good person, doing the right things and helping others around you too. Most of the characters are nicely written, although there could have been more varied interaction with them (especially after completing their quests). Quests are of “fetching type” when you do deliveries for them or they send you somewhere. I don’t really mind, as the idea of the game is about Koa helping others… and I usually pick quests and do something different and after I feel like it I deliver it, but I can understand why some of the players are bored by it. Not me though.

I like the graphics, so colorful and cheerful (with a few exceptions) even though there are some shortcomings (rainy day without a rain or so). Soundtrack is very good, characters have their own themes and I visited some of them regularly just to listen to it (like Aquila, Edogan, Fink). I have also liked changing outfits of little Koa, would love to have some of the backpacks! :)

I have truly enjoyed my time in Mara. Yeah, it has some rough edges and you can stump on some bugs (not working achievements were deleted some time ago). Ending was rather rushed and the main villain didn't get proper space, you know the anticipation for meeting up with him is building up and then it's over… truth is I was a little disappointed. City life doesn't change with day cycles (except for important characters), there are still the same people, they stand in the same spots, only animals are moving around… this could have been done in a better way. Also not all of the kickstarter stretch goals were added yet (taking photos, windsurfing, animal breeding…). After getting all you can for your island, completing your fetch quests, there is nothing to do… of course you can still tend to your island, it's very relaxing, but you were already doing it for some time… I think that there is a great potential to still develop the game, add new crops, new animals for your island, new buildings and so on. If not officially then through the mods. For now it seems like the developers are concentrating on different goals in their career, but well, who knows. I still very much recommend this game, it was a very pleasant experience.

Oh, and as you will explore the Mara you can find little crabs with messages from the backers. They are filled with love, hope, happiness… that also add a nice feeling to the game.


This is super amazing chibi game! :D

Old evil is once more threatening the peace of the whole world. Ancient legends speak about a hero rising up from common folk to fight against it. Can all of it be true? Well, only one way to know for sure. Take a hold of your sword, choose your path and begin your adventure!

So, as the name suggests you are playing as a Chibi knight, which is pretty adorable to be honest. You are a cute little ball wrapped up in an armor! As you level up, your armor and sword change their appearance. You can even lock your outfit to your liking - you will level up normally, but won't change the look which is neat but I have enjoyed my progress.
Gameplay wise it's a hack and slash with platformer sequences, I would say. You have basic and special attacks, you can also learn some skills like dash, double jump… Little twist comes with a special attack - when you are Beastmaster you can command beasts, when you become Sorcerer you can select from four spells. Your route is decided after the Prolouge. Game warns you about progressing forward, that you won't be able to come back. So it's best to complete all of the quests in your home village before moving out.
The game is short, it has great pace and you will hardly get stuck. This is great actually as you can't get all of the achievements in one playthrough. Some of them are rather hard (without dying, without some skills…), should the game be longer it would get really frustrating, like this it was great fun! Two routes also offer nice replayability, with different characters, quests, enemies in the middle part of the game. Truth is that the end part is the same but different skills offer different kinds of experience. Some of the fights can be challenging, for a boss fight you have to come up with tactics not just rush them over. Luckily there is no penalty for dying so you can try as many times as you need (except when aiming for the one particular achievement).

The graphics are very cute and the music is good, fitting the game very well. The game was apparently made by father & daughter duo (she even voiced Chibi Knight) and it has a great feeling. It's filled with jokes and references on popular culture, we had some good laughs. If you will take for what it is - cute short funny game, filled with action, you will for sure enjoy it. "Boo ya!"

5/5

I love this game!

This is a compilation of three standalone games, as I understand it there were made some changes so it's not completely same as shown in The Final Cut. I have not played these before so I can't really compare with them, but I would say that the third part was a bit lacking. Second part is filled with action, you can't stop for a moment as there is always what to do. And after that it gets somewhat… dry. Overall experience was superb though. ;)

The gameplay is addictive, fast paced and overall super fun. You have many options to set the game to your liking with many skills, perks, gear and even many levels of difficulty settings. Locations are nicely varied and really big. Also there is a lot of hidden stuff to be found, secrets to uncover. The ever present little references to dozens other games and movies make you chuckle every now and then. And there is really a lot of them!!

The mysterious, sometimes creepy atmosphere is greatly built up by perfectly fitting dubbing and a very nice soundtrack. Characters are very likable and the main duo, Lady Katarina and Van Helsing, are just awesome in their interaction, they have great chemistry between them!

We are now playing it in co-op on higher difficulty and it's still the same great fun as before, maybe even better. ;)


This is free otome visual novel which can put many other paid games into its pocket. I was rather surprised by its quality… in art, writing, music… I have truly enjoyed my time with it. After completing the game, we have decided to buy the artbook to show our support to the developers because they made really great work. Also sequel came out recently, which we will grab for sure. ;)

Our known and favorite fairytales are turned into wicked curses that are cast upon those who need to change. Our main heroine, an "Ice Princess", is one of the cursed. In one moment her world turns upside down and she finds herself on the streets in ragged clothes, no one remembering her being the princess. If she wants to go back to the palace, she needs to perform three good deeds. With no inkling how to do that she has to co-operate with others, maybe helping them to break the curse will also help her. First reluctant in the work, she begins to change, her heart melting.

There are five love interests to pursue, one being the true route. None of them is a weak point as all of the guys are interesting and enjoyable (which is rather surprising as usually only two or three are interesting enough for me). I have even liked our main heroine (I usually hate them) and I can understand some of her worries, motives. Story is captivating, pushing you forward, it's really nicely written. There are no typos or mistakes that would break the immersion (at least not that I spotted any).

I have only two rebukes. In one of the routes I would change the good ending, because it wasn't right how they solved it. ;) Other is that one of the support characters didn't get his own route (as was planned), I would love to know more about him.



Half-Life 2

Slime Rancher

5/5
251.8 hours
57 of 57 achievements

So, after 230 hours in, I have decided that it's a time to complete the last few achievements. :)
We have mostly played through the Rush Challenge mode and it was fun to play little bit differently. You don't have time to play around, instead you have to hunt for the plorts to make money! As the saying goes - practice makes perfect, I was able to get the gold medal on my third try. It's a challange and you also need a little bit of luck.

We still play it from time to time as the developers are active and add some new content. It's a great, beautiful game that will make you smile. You can read more in my short review here.

Half-Life 2

Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek

2/5
9.1 hours
11 of 11 achievements

We have not enjoyed this one much, there is a lot of backtracking and the hidden object scenes were sometimes misleading. Puzzles were of the easier sort.
Nice aspect was the detective work, where you collect clues and evidence and from them you build up the case.

Half-Life 2

Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood

4/5
8.9 hours
36 of 36 achievements

Straight continuation to the first Enigmatis game. It has very high score on Steam, which I found hard to believe after the first game, but it's rather well deserved.
Visuals are very nice and I liked the story setting more than in the first game, even though there are still some weak points. I liked the puzzles, nothing too hard and some of them were really good! Hidden object scenes were also better, although getting one done under 1 minute proved to be a challenge (and cost me another playthrough).
As a detective, you have to do your work again and gather clues and evidence, which is fun and spice up the gameplay a little.

This game is a lot more interactive than its predecessor, there is a lot you can click on and even two types of collectibles to be found. Mysterious prisoner will share old tale with you and even though it's a part of the story, it's interesting and enjoyable.
Only one thing bothered me. You can skip the hidden object scenes with a Pair-matching mini game. To get all the achievements you have to do at least two whole runs, because you have to do all hidden object scenes and all pair-matching games… I really don't understand why they do that in these kinds of games. There is nothing new for you to see and even if I have enjoyed the story I don't have to see it again right away… but other than that it's a quite enjoyable HOG.

Half-Life 2

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride

4/5
8.2 hours
24 of 24 achievements

Another nice and enjoyable HOG, although I am bigger fan of the bad guy here than the good ones. :P
It is very colorful and lively. Puzzles and hidden object scenes are good. There were few situations when I got lost and it took me a moment to realize what I am supposed to do exactly, I was probably thinking too much ahead. Also you get a little cute kitty as your helper.

And again, you need to do all hidden object scenes and then domino games instead of it to open all of the achievements…

Half-Life 2

Detention

5/5
5.0 hours
8 of 8 achievements

Story of Detention is set in fictitious Taiwan, currently under martial law. In a secluded high school is issued a typhoon warning, when two students find themselves all alone there, unable to leave. With the storm coming closer the reality begins to change and dreams, nightmares, memories they all get twisted together. The journey to the bottom of the truth will be painful and disturbing.

The atmosphere of the game is very dark, heavy and scary (thanks to Taiwanese/Eastern cultural references). The visuals and music makes it even more unsettling. The story, the conclusion… it's sad, very sad.

Detention is a great point and click adventure where you explore and solve intriguing puzzles. It can be confusing at some moments, but the story just pushes you forwards, you can't hide from the truth.
To see what horrids can happen… to know that some of these horrids happened somewhere in our history… Detention will fill you with many things to think about.

Half-Life 2

Discovery! A Seek & Find Adventure

3/5
3.2 hours
no achievements

Actually quite enjoyable hidden object game, but truth is that we have played it in two so when you are alone it can get a bit overwhelming and tedious after a while.
There in no story per se, you are a contestant in an international find-and-seek game and you have to overcome your rivals in different countries to reach for the main prize. After that you can challenge up previous main winners and become the ultimate world star!

It's basically one hidden object scene after another (in three different search modes) with few mini games between it. Some of the items are almost blending with the background picture making them very hard to find… although you can use a hint without any penalty. Also the graphic was of a little low quality. The music was rather good, catchy.

It was a nice change to story HOGs we played lately, but can't imagine playing only this type all the time.

Half-Life 2

Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island

2.5/5
8.0 hours
no achievements

Sadly this is an example how a good point and click adventure game shouldn't look like.
Story could be even interesting… three different characters - Vooju Priest, fatty pirate cook and pirate lady captain; forced to somewhat work together to save the world from Vooju Witch and an old evil sleeping deep inside a volcano. Game is divided between our heroes - you can switch between them freely when they still have something to do, they can even give advice to each other on how to proceed in a particular situation although I have found this a little bit lacking. You spent half of the time as ghosts with limited skills and possibilities which can be nicely seen on the inventory system - you don't have everything on you, the hero will just note it for future references so you don't go around with large boulder or something like that (remember Simon and his hat? ;) ).

All of this sounds all right, now to the negative points. When you click on items you get description / comment on it from the characters, that's fine, pretty normal in adventures. Sadly you can't skip them. So, when you are thinking what to do next (happens a lot) and you examine the items you can work with you have to listen to all of the lines again. Some of them were rather long and after a while it turns to be annoying. Moving between screens is delayed by black screen each time you go somewhere… not that I can't wait, but it disturbs the immersion of the situation. There are subtitles 'in game', but not during the cutscenes which was a little troublesome as I am not native English speaker and some of the characters speak with strong accents so I had a problem with keeping up with them and again it disturbs the immersion. Graphic is okay, I am just a bigger fan of 2D or pixel graphics I think.
Story seemed to be a little bit rushed and the ending was a rather disappointing one as there wasn't any real conclusion to it. There were plans for sequel which were not realized, only some spin-off.

Some moments of the game are enjoyable, with good jokes and many referrals on popular culture. But the overall experience was sadly rather boring.

During January I have managed to beat two more games - 911 and Ryse. Both of them are very good, but I aim for completion (in Ryse getting all the achievements I can) so I will write my reviews after I am done with them.

Added Koa from Summer in Mara.

October / November 2020 report

Hello everyone! Late again, well I just enjoy doing double posts apparently. ;)
October was the best gaming month I probably ever had. We had luck on short games not requiring much of our time. We have also enjoyed them very much. ;)

As the Christmas are getting closer, I hope that everyone will have a good time with their family, loved ones and pets. Stay postitive and don’t worry about things you can’t affect. <3

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

Awesome game! I haven't played the original so I can't compare them, but I have enjoyed this one so much! It's made by Arkane studios and you can recognize their work pretty well. I love Dishonored and you can feel its touch in Prey. In the way you move, use your abilities, in the fight… this nostalgic feeling was great and enjoyable for me.

Not sure what all I can tell to not spoil much from the plot as I didn't know anything before playing, which was a rather good thing for me. Story is very good, although you can predict some of the development, it's immersive and the outcome still surprised me. I have enjoyed the possibilities you have to resolve any kind of situation. There is never only one right solution or a way you have to take, it all just depends on your skills and the power of your imagination.

Atmosphere of the game is perfect, beautiful graphics and captivating soundtrack do their parts in it. Gameplay is smooth, quick and there is always something going on. It crashed on me twice, I think, but on its defense I was then playing all day in one session… so he was just tired. ;) There was a little problem with graphics settings, which is a common problem apparently (highest resolution resulted in lowest in game) and I have solved it in a moment. Can only recommend it.

5/5

This was a pretty good game. I didn't expect anything, I just really liked the pixel graphic design as it reminded me a little of Count Lucanor… I didn't even know what kind of game it's going to be exactly, but I loved it!

It starts simply. You are pulled from your grave to stop the Fog from spreading. To achieve that you have to defeat the one who beckoned it. The path won't be as simple though. You need to navigate a large mansion and its grounds filled with twisted servants to find Beckoners Knights, who hold the keys to him. Among the enemies you can meet NPCs who will shed a bit of a light on the situation and events that lead to the spreading of the Fog. But beware as every step brings you closer towards insanity and you can see the world twisting. Can you fulfill your quest and overcome these horrors?

So, the graphic is perfect. Twisted (this word really suits this game), bloody, gory… the deeper you go down the rabbit hole, the nastier it gets. Pretty. <3 Soundtrack is setting a great feeling to the spreading insanity. Story is very interesting, to fully comprehend it you have to search every crook to find more and more of the lore (there are a lot of things to click at). The game is full of Lovecraftian symbols, hints and it creates a pretty creepy atmosphere! Although there is not a lot of space for some deep character development I find them nicely written, they are interesting, enjoyable and likeable (even hate-able - good thing)! Luckily it has sequels so here I hope for some new information on my favorite ones. ;)

Controls are… well strange and it took me some time to grow accustomed to them, but after that it was fine. Fight is challenging, very much. Just getting through the tutorial level cost me more than 5 deaths. But even though you will often die, it's not frustrating… well, for me at least. I haven't rage quit as with some other similar games (if we consider the fact that some are describing it as "Souls-like" then it's a miracle as I have quit the Dark Souls after, eh, 6 hours). In total there are four different endings, you also have New game+ which gets the difficult level in crazy highs and it's a little slap on your face as you get better and really strong and then you start anew and again you die in a tutorial. XD There are also two challenge levels after you beat the game, insanely hard. I have done it after getting the four endings and playing through it two more times.

I have enjoyed Skautfold very much and can't wait to start the next game! There is only one thing I didn't like and although I maybe understand why it wasn't available (as it has a continuous purpose), I still think it should have been an option. SPOILER I want to kill that jerk Waltham so much! The inability to do so made me rather disappointed. If you like pixel graphics, horror settings and novels from H.P.Lovecraft, I can only recommend it to you!


Your daughter run away from home. Again. You, her father, are following her trails. Firmly decided that you will find and take her back home. With the help of modern technology you know where she is hiding. As you step in the old Moravian forest you begin to doubt your sanity. Memories resurfaces, dreams turns into nightmares and the reality you thought you knew turns upside down.

Someday You'll return is an interesting game, it managed to confuse me a little as I have felt few contradicting emotions towards it. I think that it's a game that was made with a lot of passion, you can feel it. The graphic is beautiful and the soundtrack has some very nice Czech folk songs. The few problems that you can possibly experience don't prevent you from enjoying it to the end. You can notice that it's a combination of different genres - a walking simulator, an action adventure, horror with survival and stealth elements… some of those elements are done better than the others.

So, you are searching for your daughter in this large Czech forest. You will be mostly wandering around all alone, although you will meet some people there, for better or for worse. Exploring the forest is very relaxing. I love forest, autumn forest, its colors and sounds. The design is very beautiful, it's a joy to just stand there and look at the scenery. The forest as it is, is not real, but the individual places are. Through QR codes you can find and learn more about them.
As you explore you will find interactive items. For this you have your inventory with crafty tools. I think this was done nicely. You can inspect the items from every side and then work with them further. There could have been more items you'd need to use it for though. Another part of your inventory belongs to the Herbalist section where you will make potions. With the help of your herbal book you have to collect herbs and prepare them accordingly. There are usually enough herbs for you to gather (they replenish over time too), but you have limited space for them, so it's best to make a reserve of them or your potions as you can't be sure when you will need one.
Horror part shows itself in the beginning after dusk, later in the game you won't be safe even during the day. In these stealth (or runaway) missions you will meet dangerous beings. You can't fight them, you have to outsmart them and get by. These sections are not really hard, although it can take you some time to realize what you are supposed to do exactly. Death isn't any problem, you wouldn't lose anything and there are a lot of autosave spots. Also I can't say that I was afraid exactly, there were moments of uneasiness, discomfort or stress (when I was being hunted by the enemy for example), but I was pretty calm overall. This part can be for some players a bit lacking.

Whole forest is filled with a lot of collectable items and it's a challenge to find them all, even more as one of the items you have to collect in one gameplay. Also you need to be vigilant as there are sections you can skip or completely miss. In the last big update chapter saves were added so you can go back to find the missing thing, but as I said, this won't work for that particular item. I have enjoyed looking for those little collectibles, although it's pretty hard to keep track of where you have already been in the forest and where you need to go next. In addition to that there are few moments when you need your logical thinking, for example when you need to crack a cipher!

Story is told through pages of your daughter's diary, your memories and occasional visions. Later you are not sure what is reality and what is just your imagination, so it can be somewhat confusing from time to time. It's unfolding slowly and it's not like what it seemed to be at the beginning. Some say that the story is predictable… I wouldn't describe it like that. There are parts in the story that are clear without any doubts, but other aspects of the story are developing throughout the game… the biggest role in this have Daniel, you. He is the most unsympathetic obnoxious main hero I have probably ever seen. I wanted to kick him most of the time. But as the story developed, I have changed my opinion towards him and the events that shaped his relationships within his family. Don't get me wrong, he is still an unbelievable jerk… but I felt sympathy for him in the end.

I don't want to spoil much and it's probably better if you won't find anything to the story beforehand. Maybe you will see through it right from the beginning or you will slowly uncover the secrets step by step, but I still think it's worth a try. The game is made with love and none of the shortages prevents you from enjoying it. The end moved me.

5/5 X 2.5/5

As you can see, I have two different scores for it. On one hand, it's a great game and we had a lot of fun with it. The premise is great and it reminded me of Groundhog Day for example. On the other hand, it's a terribly optimized game that kept crashing on us and it could have offered more actual replayability.

Reynardo, fox ex-pirate, gets tangled up in events that are bigger than him and the future of his homeworld depends on his fighting skills, brave soul and witty mind. The Emperor has gone mad and everyone trembles in fear as his soldiers hunt for his next sacrifice to the Old gods. The rebellion needs help in order to stop him, so Reynardo becomes an involuntary hero. How many tries will he need to save the world?

The story is told through pages of a mysterious book, which lets you choose your path and after your failure, to start over again. This time, with the information you have learned before and it's really fun to see how the story develops differently. As you know more and more you'd definitely find the right solution. In total there are 24 stories you can open. Once you find truth about all of the four elements, you can open the true ending. After that, if you want to see it all and open all achievements, you have to play the remaining stories. This proved to be a little tedious as you already know everything and you are only awarded with a different ending - not that they are not nice and funny though! It just lacks any motivation to keep going as you have gathered all orbs, maxed your swords… there is nothing new to open.

Reynardo is a great fighter and in the end he has four hero swords which you can freely use. They have different abilities and they open secret paths. With them you can take a slightly different route or find secret stash. Enemies are not much varied, but fights with them are fast-paced and fun. You can grab them and throw them away or use them as a shield, you can build up your combo and activate some special abilities. Better combo means more experiences.

The graphics are very pretty, so nicely colorful. Soundtrack is also perfect, and compels the story very well. But the best on it is the narrator. He had extremely hard work to do and he nailed it. See, the narrator voices all of the characters and for each of them he changes the voice accordingly! As we are in a magical world there are frogs, cats, rabbits, mysterious stones… he brings it all to life with his voice. Perfect work.
Also the narrator comments on the random things that Reynardo does, so it's fun to try out what will trigger another comment. :)

The crashing. Apparently it has some kind of problem with itself. Every time we have started it, it would crash, after that it would play normally if we were lucky… and as there are few checkpoints you have to do the level from the beginning… it's not a real problem as they are not that long, but it can become boring if you see it five times in a row. Best for the end, two stories before completion it crashed to the blue screen of death and we had to fall back to the point of reversal. So yeah, that wasn't nice.

Overall, if you forget the technical issues, it's a great funny game. It could have offered more of the hidden content or more things to collect from the treasures, but it's still very much enjoyable. If you don't play it all in one session you won't get fed up with it, because the stories are certainly worth it. If you decide to try it, beware of the crashes, but you might be lucky and skip on them. ;)

Fairy Tale Mysteries: The Puppet Thief

You are a freshly graduated detective of supernatural events and famous Grimm brothers send you on your first case. Mysterious figure is causing children disappearances and villagers are accusing traveling puppet theater. When a daughter of your magician aid went missing, this case turns to be personal and you need to quickly unravel where exactly is this Evil Puppeteer hiding and defeat him (as the Grimm brothers are pretty useless you know, well they have a lot of excuses at least).

Nice HOG, with good, not too difficult puzzles. Little bit of backtracking. I liked the diary, where you had information not only about the case progress, but also investigating tips from Grimm brothers.

Fairy Tale Mysteries 2: The Beanstalk

Another fairy tale and another case the Grimm brothers need your help with. Mysterious beans that are supposed to lead into heaven and bring down mighty giants can’t fall into the wrong hands. With the help of famed guardians you have to find them and seal their powers. Despite all your effort one of the beans grows up and then starts the race against time to prevent the giants from descending upon the Earth.

Again quite enjoyable and quick HOG. There is yet again backtracking and reused scenes, as it was happening mostly in one closed space. I wouldn’t mind playing other games inspired by fairy tales.

After completing your studies at university you came back to your home. Royal alchemist is your guardian as your parents are long gone, but instead of becoming his apprentice, mysterious figure shows up. He reveals a dark secret about your family which is deeply connected to the kingdom fate!

Story has its weaker parts, but the game pace doesn't suffer from it. There isn't any serious backtracking and you are moving mostly forward. Puzzles are good, some of them really sophisticated. The graphic is very pretty and the background music enjoyable.

Young prince prepares for his coronation, when long forgotten dangerous powers awaken. Even though you do your best to prevent the evil witch coming back to this realm, she is able to pull you and the young prince through the portal into a glass realm where she was held captive until now. Can you protect your ruler and save your kingdom from the witch cruel domination?

Yet again very enjoyable HOG with nice puzzles (some of them are very creative and action like). Nice design and background music.

Enjoyable short platformer game with cute pink kitten and scawwwy zombie cats, ghosts, mummy mouses, dogs, bats and evil witch at the end! :3

Game is simple with no particular story. You have to collect pennies to open the following "dungeon". To progress in the level you need to pick up a golden key and reconnect the little girl with its spirit. The route is clear, you can't really get lost. Some of the platforming parts are rather tricky and require little bit of concentration. The graphics are adorable and music fits the situations.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

4/5
11.8 hours
12 of 12 achievements

Alan Wake is back in this short story from Arizona plains where he fights against the Darkness and its herald, evil Mr. Scratch. Captured in his twisted reality you have to try your best to outsmart this insane fellow. There are three different locations, in each you have to save / protect a lady in distress and with their help you will be able to move on. Story is simple, but there is a fun twist to it. ;)

Gameplay wise it's still Alan Wake. You have your faithful flashlight and variety of weapons at your disposal to protect yourself against the old and new enemies. Fights were good, the bigger ones offered even a challenge. You will rarely run out of munition as there are stashes that replenish over time - I would love to have this in the main game, there you are always low on batteries and bullets. You also have a mini map which shows your goal and even those stashes and collectibles, which was great! Not only do these collectibles help to shape the story, they open better weapons in the challenges. After completing the main story you can try your survival skills in the Arcade levels, where you need to fight off the enemies till the dawn. After a few tries I was able to get even the hardest achievements on the Nightmare mode, so in the end it wasn't that hard. ;)

Even though this is a standalone game, I think you will enjoy it more if you have played the original game first as you will be familiar with the controls, enemies and the story so far. It was fun, easier than the main game, but I take it as a savory before the big anticipated sequel!! Yes, I am still hoping. ;)

Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates

4/5

We have enjoyed this HOG, it has great humor and there are some good "memes". Art is very nice, detailed and lively. Hidden object scenes are rather hard, the item you are looking for can be anywhere and some of them were hidden really sophisticatedly. You can use a hint without any penalty, so that's nice and even though we tried our best, we had to use it two - three times. Puzzles are brilliant, some of them would be good for any point and click adventure not just HOG! Their difficulty is somewhere between medium and easy, which is fine as it wouldn't frustrate you for long. ;) Music is catchy and good for pirate theme, although there's only a few tracks.

Half-Life 2

Eroico

3.5/5
3.2 hours
no achievements

Cute, short platformer game with a twist. ;)

There isn't much of a story to talk about. You are a hero on a quest to defeat the Evil. You will go through three stages and meet a variety of enemies (and three bosses) with different types of attacks. With bigger numbers of the enemies can the fights become a bit overwhelming. You don't have skills, just your sword that works both for attack and defense.
There are checkpoints in each level, although they work only for the current session. When you close the game before completing the level (or getting to the save before the boss), you have to do the level from the beginning. It's not that long though. ;)
You also have a playground corresponding with the stages where you can test your fighting and ehm, other skills against your enemies. They open once you start them, to see the boss you have to defeat them first though.

The pixel graphic is just gorgeous, especially in some specific moments. ;) You can also access a gallery of yours defeats. Some of the pics are very pretty, others are just mediocre.

When I look at it now after completing it, I see a lot of potential. With some work on it… adding lore and story, better mechanics, skill development, NPCs, more enemies males O.O… could become some really good metroidvania sweet, sweet dreams. But if you will just take it for what it is, short cute little game with NSFW stuff where you can just fool about, you won't be disappointed. ;)

Black The Fall

One day you just decide that you have enough of this totalitarian stuff all around and you decide to leave. It's not going to be easy as they are not fond of their good obedient sheep leaving its herd.

Puzzle game with dystopian view on the world. There are things you will recognize for they were and there are things that many dystopian authors describe in their works. Either of those two isn't a pleasant reality to live through. The heavy atmosphere of the game reflects that.
The game is simplistic in its design, although it suits it and I wouldn't want it otherwise, there were parts I would welcome better presentation… at least of the game mechanics. Because of that some puzzles got rather frustrating, even though there wasn't anything particularly hard about them and just required for you to think out of the box. When I knew what I am supposed to do, I have actually enjoyed the puzzles.
Even though you can die, there is no penalty upon that and there are lot of checkpoints so you don't have to repeat long sequences.

It's a bit of a short game and it doesn't offer much replayability, which is good on one hand as the theme is heavy and not very happy. For achievement purposes you don't need to go through the whole game as you can pick up from many saves in each chapter.

August + September 2020 report

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing fine.
Both August and September were busy months as we have been renovating our living room. I thought I would have some time for a short update, but nope, so here I come with a double post at the end of October… oh my. Here I hope that I will make my next report sooner.


Please excuse me if you find any mistakes, after I post my report I usually find many of them, but I really read the post a few times before I send it out. X) Feel free to point them out to me. ;)

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

I just love Supergiant games! <3 Their games are so different, strange, lovely, emotional.
Red, a young popular singer in Cloubank, gets attacked by a shadow group named Camerata. But things don’t go as planned and as a result Red gets a hold of a peculiar device called Transistor. With it in her hands she travels through the city to find the answer on what is happening and why exactly.
Storytelling is done in a peculiar way and you are not told much, just hints about that or that, but you are still captivated and you just have to push on. Characters, even though there are just few of them and there is not said much about them, are just perfect. Voice acting is exceptional!!! <3 Beautiful graphic and totally amazing soundtrack creates an awesome game in all aspects! Combat is great fun and can be pretty challenging, especially if you set yourself some limiters or try your luck in special challenges. Also there are countless possibilities to create your best skill combo so fights never get old. Can only recommend, we have played through it four times in total. ;)

Cooking saga continues!
We have enjoyed the first game and have to say that this one is a very good successor, maybe even better in some aspects. Some things are new, some are changed for better and some stay untached. Sooooo, one of the best things is that you can make your own restaurant as you level up and get new furniture, decorations, lights and so on. This adds a great touch to the game as you get even more attached to your restaurant, also it’s really awesome to see your patrons sitting at tables waiting for their order. :D
Your cooking space changed a little and now you have a prep station where you can (or have to) prepare food in advance and then serve it right away, this adds other possibilities to your cooking. There are many recipes and they just look so delicious!!! We got rather hungry preparing all the dishes. XD Few of the hard recipes got simplified which is great, but many new very hard recipes got added which isn’t that great! XD
Next great aspect is that besides cooking in your own restaurant you can help in the others, each of them have a specific menu. It’s a great way to practice, level up and get more nice stuff for your restaurant.
What was changed is how co-op works. Now everyone is taking care of their own meal, you pick it up you have to also prepare it. Truth is that in the most hectic moments you mostly don’t talk to each other as you concentrate on the work, but it’s still great fun! After playing a little it growed at us quickly despite initial concerns!
It’s a great game, funny, cute and also challenging. Can only recommend! :)

So, I am little bit torn apart about this game. When I first heard about it, all I knew was that some girl succumbs herself into hell in search for her dead loved one. All of it shrouded in Northern mythology, filled with Viking warriors and that sold it for me. After some time later I have learned that our main heroine is also struggling with psychosis. And in this point I feel a little bit of wasted potential.

Whole game is visually absolutely stunning, especially Senua's emotions are clearly visible on her face. Next thing I would say is that the game is a combination of hack and slash, walking simulator and puzzle solving. It works well together and puzzles offer good diversion from the fights, although be the game longer it could get too repetitive as there aren't enough variations. Fights are from the simpler ground (don't take this as an insult, just a statement that there isn't countless combos you can perform), but can get challenging if you get overrun by enemies or you are playing on auto difficulty (after completing the game I have learned that I have played on the hardest setting as it adapts to your performance, sometimes it was truly a hell). All in all you have light strike, heavy strike, block / counter, kick (took me some time till I figured this one) and evade and that's all you need. I have enjoyed the fights, even the very hated locked view and the inability to see behind you (yes it can be frustrating). The best part of the fights are the moves of Senua and her enemies. The motion capture is truly brilliant and it's a joy to see how their abilities and moves change according to their wounds! Also the music during fights was pretty good and created an intense atmosphere, as the whole soundtrack after all.

Through the game you can collect runes with myth stories, when you collect them all you will see additional cutscenes before the end. If you miss some, you have to play it whole again as you can't go back or load a chapter save. That happened to me and sadly the second run is completely the same, nothing new added.

Now to the point. So Senua is living with psychosis. She sees things, hears voices. You are just a passive watcher of her struggle. And here comes my disappointment. You know, I think that what happened to Senua (death of her loved one in a peculiar way and so) would push anyone to insanity. Voices of self loathing, full of an accusation, hatred or overall confusion rather correspond with the situation. But she is living with it all her life, inherited it by her late mother, as this is shown to us by few visions. Too few. For me it doesn't build enough connection with her, most of the time I was rather indifferent. But let's say that they actually allowed us to be one of her voices, to influence her for the worse or for the better. That would add another level of immersion. I understand that you can't actually win over the disease, that it's a never ending fight, but there are things that can make it better… or worse. I know that the game would offer only an illusion of choice and influence and the ending would be basically the same, but it would be much better to live through her past, to push her towards the light or to pull her deeper into the darkness…

Another point that slightly disturbs the immersion is the Hela mark. When you make it to the hell gates you are marked and told that when you die, the mark will spread and once it gets to your head your journey will be over. That got me really hooked up and nervous when the fight turned for the worse. So I did my best to not die, to keep my mark at bay. Sadly the mark is growing on it's own. I understand that for some plot twists it was important to have a particular level of the mark, but I still felt it as betrayal you are actually safe, you can die as many times as you want, even on the hardest difficulty, I would say it’s a wasted opportunity.

All in all, I think it's a good game that has some flaws, but it's still enjoyable. Also I am curious about the second game.




Nothing new added. Move on.

My ABC plan contains many unfinished games because I would like to complete them before starting new ones, this is my huge problem. ;) This plan should help me with it.
  • So for the purpose of this list, only games marked as completed counts - until said otherwise.
  • Games can be played in whichever order.
  • Unfinished games will be restarted or continued.
Nancy is done! :)
