Good Robot – REVIEW

Sometimes a developer can do more in 88 megabytes than others do with 8 gigabytes. Good Robot combines 2D twin-stick shooting with rogue-lite elements and delivers blocks of entertainment in every bit. Copious weapon and headgear options glamorize the typical twin shooter combat, but there is also enough parody throughout to make even jaded gamers crack a smile. Good …

Heaven’s Hope – Review

Portrayals of super-natural figures from the Christian mythos tend to be uneven: there’s often a heavy bias towards the superstars, with Jesus and Lucifer getting the lion’s share of attention (sorry, Daniel). Heaven’s Hope takes a different approach, telling a story centered around angel-in-training Talorel. The introduction sequence leaves you …
