Yeah, let’s bring this back, it’s only been a bloody year since the last one.   Lots of games have been coming out recently, and as pathetic of a human being I am, I can only review so much, or rather find so much to review. Out of the…

Y’know “Sometimes You”? No? Not surprising.   The Russian publisher/developer has been going at it for a while, scouring Eastern Europe for the best games that they have to offer. So far, his hunt has struck gold once or twice, with the charming double bill of Where Are My Friends? and Deep…

Smash Hit (by Mediocre) advertises itself as “a transcendental, ambient journey through time and space”. Personally, I’m not too sure about that, but it’s certainly a decent way to burn an hour or two. You progress through a randomly generated path “take a surreal journey through an otherworldy dimension” filled…

Back in high school, I wasted my fair share of study halls (as well as actual classes) playing Little Alchemy in-browser. When the beginning of the week started and I was looking for a new game to feature, I was pretty excited to see “Little Alchemy 2” by the…

I’ve reviewed a lot of games in the past 6 months.   Since my inclusion on to the Sick Critic team in late June, the team at SC and I have reviewed a variety of smush from all resides. We’ve played perfection, we’ve played… not-perfection, but those are the…

This one’s a bit different from my standard picks; while most of my previous selections have been puzzle games (with the exception of the still relatively soothing Alto’s Adventure), Data Wing by Dan Vogt is by far the most action-based. You play as the titular Data Wing, a thoughtless…
