Stranger of Sword City PC Review
Stranger of Sword City PC Review

A solid dungeon crawler with fantastic art and music, but a few poorly implemented ideas prevent it from being a truly great experience. The PC port is simple but performs well enough for the genre, and the addition portrait uploads is a fun bonus.

Ray Gigant Review

This visual novel / dungeon crawler hybrid does a number of interesting things with its characters and gameplay, but falls short of excellence due to a poor conclusion and lack of challenge.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter - Video Review

This localized release has been an incredible labour of love, but it feels like it was all worthwhile - this is a modern classic in waiting.

With a bland narrative and repetitive gameplay, Lost Dimension doesn't offer much for tactical RPGs

Etrian Mystery Dungeon Review

While mechanically sound, too many conveniences make Etrian Mystery Dungeon more mundane than it needs to be
