Game: Shovel Knight (Miscellaneous)

There's a certain tactility to shoveling through a dirt pile or catapulting off of an enemy's head that the development team absolutely nailed.

Game: Mugen Souls Z (PlayStation 3)

In a way, Mugen Souls Z works better as an anime than an RPG.

Game: Age of Wonders III (Miscellaneous)
Posted: April 15, 2014 (06:26 PM)
Take Civilization V, greatly simplify city management, throw in tactical RPG battles and replace all the ethnicities with classical fantasy races. You now have a close approximation of the addictive experience that is Age of Wonders III. It took a great deal of willpower to pry myself away from the game long enough to write this review.

Game: Bonk's Adventure (NES)
Posted: August 05, 2013 (10:50 AM)
Thereís a level in which you bash a giant dinosaur on the head, then climb into its mouth and go spelunking inside its stomach. Bonkís Adventure knows itís a fairly straightforward game, so it goes out of its way to be adorable.

Game: Adventure Island II (NES)
Posted: June 06, 2013 (08:23 PM)
Adventure Island II is the game Adventure Island wanted to be. The first game was only worth playing for the novelty of its unreasonable difficulty, but this one is worth playing because itís actually good.

Game: E.V.O.: The Search for Eden (SNES)
Posted: May 01, 2013 (11:45 AM)
E.V.O.: The Search for Eden really shouldnít be fun. Itís an Action-RPG with almost no redeeming qualities, save for its one highly enjoyable system of evolution. The developers seem to have made the game entirely dependent on that feature, and amazingly, their gambit worked. Even though almost all of the gameplay consists of grinding for EVO (evolution) points to further tweak your Darwinian nightmare, the promise of that next upgrade is just enough motivation to keep playing. I find it ...

Hudsonís Adventure Island is Super Mario Bros. on steroids.

Game: Secret of Evermore (SNES)
Posted: April 09, 2013 (10:41 PM)
A fresh team of developers from Squaresoft (the companyís North American wing) oversaw development with little direction from the head office. Apparently, their instructions were simply to craft a game about a boy and his dog traveling through a world comprised of cheesy movie environments. Given this simplistic premise and the relative inexperience of the developers, itís not surprising that the product the team produced has so little in common with most other Square titles of the era.

Game: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk (PlayStation 3)
Posted: March 13, 2013 (05:55 PM)
Atelier Ayesha is a shallow affair. I like its looks and the sweet music it plays, but it just doesnít appeal to me intellectually.

Game: Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan (3DS)
Posted: March 06, 2013 (01:57 PM)
Etrian Odyssey IV, the latest installment in the series and the first to appear on the 3DS, does an excellent job of adding convenience without sacrificing any of the franchiseís charms. And donít worry: itís still really difficult.

Game: Mr. Gimmick (NES)
Posted: March 02, 2013 (11:33 AM)
Mr. Gimmick (also known as Gimmick! in the original Japanese version) is a creative NES platformer that few people have ever heard of. Strangely enough, the only place outside of Japan where the game saw release was Scandinavia.

Game: Generation of Chaos: Pandora's Reflection (PSP)
Posted: February 18, 2013 (08:23 PM)
Developers these days often try to pack as many features into their games as possible, but, for the most part, those features wind up feeling half-assed. In contrast, Generation of Chaos: Pandoraís Reflection emphasizes a single feature and streamlines everything else to accommodate it.
