An underrated, 80s action inspired, side scroller, shoot 'em up.

-The visuals are beautiful. The heroes, the bosses, the enemies, all are beautifully designed; and have smooth animations. The backgrounds and the environments are very vibrant, and there is always something happening in the background (if you pay attention to it). Visually, my only problem is the in-game UI. The heroes icon and his life bar, etc, are so far at the corner of the monitor. It would be much better if it was a bit closer to the center.

-The story is a simple, corny, 80s action movie. You are a bounty hunter in a dystopian future and you have to help the cops and the government (obviously corrupt) to get rid of some gangs. And of course it has an unnecessarily negative ending. Nothing special to it; but I personally like these 80s action parodies, hopefully you're into it as well.

-The game is a side scrolling shoot 'em up, so the gameplay is the most important thing in it. You have your heroes main weapon and their melee weapon. But as you are playing you can pick up other stuff as your secondary gun or melee weapon. The gameplay is very good for the first half of the game, but it just gets progressively boring as you progress in the game.

-The level structure is very simple. You are to face 4 different gang, each stronger and armed with better weapons as the previous one. Each gang has a leader, and that leader has 4 right hands (this is the best way I can explain it, believe me). You will have to kill those 4, one by one and eventually finish the leader of that gang. For each of these bosses; there are some stages to clear first and then you reach the boss of that level. As I said the gangs and the bosses will get stronger and stronger; so don't be fooled by the first ones.


If you are into this genre, you should really give this game a shot. It might not be the best you will ever see; but it can give you a couple of hours of pure fun.

A whole game based on a mini game in another game. Gwent Pro Max

-The gameplay is either running around in the map or playing a match of Gwent. In the map(s), you have to go to a specific point to continue the story but you can wander around in there to find some resource or fight some monsters. And the fighting is just Gwent; sometimes you only need to win one set, sometimes you need to win two. There are also some puzzles in the game for when you encounter some monsters; there is even a match-three Gwent game. I gotta say, Gwent is a great mini game but it gets really boring when you have to play it constantly,

-The visuals are stunning. The environment is very much like a comic book; so is the design of the characters and cards. The only game I can think of with the same approach to art direction, is Hades. I prefer this one though...

-The Story is amazing; like every other Witcher game. You play as queen Meve who is one of the rulers in the north of the Continent. Nilfgaard is invading the north and you have to overcome the obstacles in your way to defend your realm. Your choices are very important in the story. You might find or lose a companion with every choice; although they won't effect the fact that you are going to defeat the Nilfgaardian empire.

-The music and voice acting is fantastic. The music is mostly Witcher 3's, recycled. And the voice acting, fantastic. Every line is delivered with the right amount of emotion; and the narrating method of telling the story makes it sound like an audio book.

-The level design is pretty alright. The paths are clear and obvious. You go down a path, which either leads to another path or leads to nowhere.

A decent spin off to a great franchise. Overall I think it's worth one playthrough, but I don't think I'll get back to it again. As eye catching the art design, and as intriguing the story, the gameplay just can't hold up.

Before playing it, I was wondering if it is going to live up to the hype... It fucking does.

-The gameplay is very simple. you basically use three other buttons other than WASD. Interact, shoot blue portal, and shoot orange portal. So there is not much so say about it. What makes it unforgettable is the level design and the physics of the game.

-The game is designed perfectly. Level design is one of those things that no one really pays attention to unless it is horrible; you get confused, can't seem to find the path, blah blah blah... But in this game everything is right in front of you. All you have to do is to learn from the early levels; and use what it teaches you, when it gets complicated. And the physics... Oh man... It's so satisfying when you throw an object on the firing bots to tip them over. Or when you make a loop with the portals to increase your speed.

-The Sound design and voice acting is fantastic. The sound design alongside the art design help a great deal to make the Aperture building creepy af. Ellen McLain also does a fantastic job at giving "life" to GLaDOS. At first it is empathetic and friendly and eventually it become genuinely scary.

-The story is very simple, but intriguing. You are a test subject, probably a former prisoner, and you are going through some test. Later you realize the friendly voice in the sky is a monster and you make it worse by destroying the part that gave it moral boundaries... Good Luck.


Portal is a great puzzle game, and in my opinion, a horror game. Although it is very short, it is an amazing breath of fresh air among these glamourous action games. Definitely give it a shot.

P.S. The portals reminded me of Prey 2006.
