Arkanoid is totally not my game. There was an old cabinet in the student union back in Wizard College*, and I had friends who could clear it! Much respect, because, for whatever reason, I could never figure it out. Yet, my whole life I’ve always put quarters into that damn game. It just looks so […]

One of my favorite games for the Sega Genesis is X-Men 2: Clone Wars. It’s a decent 16-bit platformer. One of the better licenced games, but in many ways nothing special.

The mainstream Korean mobile game scene contains a whole bunch of garbage. Like a planet of garbage. Mostly it’s just basically re-skins of Progress Quest, where you slowly grind levels so that you can see bigger numbers. I guess that’s mobile gaming in a nutshell world wide, but the current Korean scene seems pretty trash […]

The thing about LEFT! the thing RIGHT! about Hyperun RIGHT! LEFT! is that it’s extremely hard to RIGHT! OH GOD! RIGHT! to keep a train of LEFT! of thought while focusing RIGHT! LEFT! RIGHT! on the track. BOOOOM! Aw, dang it… Let’s try again… Hyperun in an infinite racer from the good folks at Concrete […]

BICFest 2017 went down in Busan a couple weekends ago and your friendly neighborhood wizard* caught a dimensional portal down there to see what the fuss was about. BICFest is Korea’s premier indie game festival going into it’s third year. One-hundred twenty odd games were showcased, along with talks by industry professionals, indie eSport competitions […]

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is the fourth in a series of Metroidvania games by Bombservice. I haven’t played the first three, but I don’t think it’s necessary to do so in order to understand this one. Maybe playing the earlier ones would explain some of the story holes.
