Either someone didn’t get the memo about the shortage of red pixels circulating the surreal memeverse, or the Son of Crimson is personally responsible. Much like the meme, red is your primary source of power in Flynn: Son of Crimson. I should clarify that by saying Flynn uses a set of blood-red powers to overcome obstacles and crush his enemies. Based on what I saw from the demo of Son of Crimson, a 2D action platformer still in the early stages of development, those obstacles are also pointed out to the player via their bright red coloration. If you need to climb a wall, smash a boulder, or swing on a knob with your grappling hook, those interactable objects are all highlighted for you. The…

I’m just going to come out and say it — Avatar: The Last Airbender in a Roguelite setting would be a pretty cool game, right? Who wouldn’t want to mix martial arts with elemental magic all while crawling procedurally generated dungeons? Wouldn’t that be fun? If you agree with all of the above, you should probably just start downloading Wizard of Legend right now. Developed and published by Contingent99, this Roguelite aims to please with its charming soundtrack, visually-pleasing aesthetics, and easy to jump into gameplay. It begins with your caped character standing right outside of the city’s museum. Upon entry, players soon discover that this is not the average museum — instead of paintings or statues, this one is full of mythical relics and…

Name: Caveblazers Developer: Rupeck Games Publisher: The Yogscast Release Date: 24th May 2017 Caveblazers is a fun and engaging Spelunky-like adventure game, which sends your intrepid explorer on expeditions into a vast network of ancient caves and ruins. The first thing that grabs you about Caveblazers is the graphic style. It sits somewhere between a true pixel retro style and something a bit more sophisticated. By itself it might have missed the mark slightly, but when accompanied by the charming audio, everything locks into place and makes perfect sense. I especially love the “voice” of the old man when your character first enters the cave, berating you for even wanting to try and be the one who makes it all of the way to the…

For many players, the first thing that stands out about Eagle Island will undoubtedly be its striking resemblance to Owlboy. That’s a shame, because Eagle Island is very much its own game. Although the pixel art platformer is still in alpha, it has the bones of a potential hit. I played through the demo, and — in spite of a few technical hiccups — I had a good time getting acquainted with the simple mechanics and the charming art style. Alright, “charming” may sound a tad effusive. Pixel art games have a lot of competition these days, so “competent” may be a better word to describe Eagle Island‘s graphics, if I’m being perfectly honest. It’s holding up the bar, but it’s in no danger of…
