NewsLetter 4-2021

Hello there, my dear Patron! Nice to see you here in our latest Newsletter looking back at all that happened on the site since then, starting February 1st until February 7th of 2021.

So if you haven’t had time to read in the past weeks, here’s all that was published, all wrapped in a nice package. So get yourself a cup of coffee (or tea of course), kick back and enjoy!


Outlanders Review (Mobile) – Two Thumbs Up

Strategy Management (subscription to Apple Arcade, $4.99/month or $49.99/year)

Emily: I highly recommend Outlanders to everyone who enjoys or has ever enjoyed a strategy and resource management game; the difficulty level is in that sweet spot where both new and more experienced players will quickly learn to love this game. The subscription to Apple Arcade may or may not be worth it depending on how often you play mobile games, but there is a month-long free trial, which I highly recommend that you take advantage of. Outlanders is one of the best mobile games I’ve played in a long time.

Turrican Flashback Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It a Lot

Action Adventure (US $29.99 | UK £24.99 | EU €29,99)

James: Turrican Flashback is a great way to enjoy four fantastic retro games. The extra features and various display options and rewind are most welcome and each game runs great on the Nintendo Switch. Some titles are sadly absent in this collection but what is present is solid.

Whether you’re new or old to the Turrican series, this is a great place to jump in, rather than hunting down the original copies of the games and hardware. Because where Turri-can…you can!

Station Manager Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It a Lot

Simulation Puzzle (US $14.00 | EU €13.00 | UK £11.69)

Rio: Manage your station to brilliant heights, have happy customers and pretty, efficient floors. Play Station Manager on Switch now and fill your town!

There is so much to explore in this game, even though it feels rather small when you first open it. Each customer has a favourite season, and if you target them during their season, it can really pay off! Seasonal advantages include, but aren’t limited to, faster movement speed, easier to keep happy and more likely to spend.

Boot Hill Bounties Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It a Lot

Adventure RPG (US $14.99 | UK £12.19 | EU €14,99)

James: If you played and liked Boot Hill Heroes, its sequel Boot Hill Bounties is a must buy. It takes the RPG formula from the first game, refines it as well as adding a plethora of additional content. This is an example of how to do a game sequel well.

Boot Hill Bounties stands out as one of the retro inspired RPG greats making the developers, Experimental Gamer Studios, a studio well worth keeping an eye on in the future.

Sword of the Necromancer Review (PC) – We Like It

Roguelike Action Adventure (US $14.99 | UK £13.49 | EU €14,99)

James: Overall, I enjoyed reviving the fallen enemies to aid me in battle and the score for this game is pretty good. Sword of the Necromancer has some interesting ideas but it doesn’t quite come together to stand tall against other titans in the roguelike genre. The combat lacks satisfaction and the game feels a little light on items in the build I played.

It feels like there is more to come though with potential future updates. Maybe with time, it will become more than just a good roguelike experience.

Project Starship X Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It

Action Arcade (US $12.99 | UK £8.99 | EU €12.99 )

James: Project Starship X is a wild and wacky space shooter that is enjoyable to play in small bursts. It sometimes feels more time was given to making the game funny than making it a more solid shooter. Some will get the joke but if you lean too heavily into this design some will certainly not.

If you’re looking for a game to play in short bursts with some rough edges then  Project Starship X is sure to provide an enjoyable and hopefully funny experience for you.

Georifters Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It

Puzzle Action/ Party (US $29.99 | UK £27.50 | EU €29,99)

James: Georifters feels like the last chocolate in a selection box that people don’t eat, like the orange truffle. It’s not that it tastes bad, it just isn’t the first thing people are going to gravitate to. It has some cool ideas with the puzzle platforming but the formula gets dull quickly.

If you are able to persist through the experience there are some well designed levels, with plenty of content on offer. However, with the title sometimes crawling at a slow pace it feels like some gamers might drop off before this. It’s better in co-op but with the Switch having many local co-op options these days this one doesn’t stand out as much as other titles. Definitely one to consider on sale or if your looking for a decent co-op experience.
