Critiques & Mini-Views

Mon Amour ($8.99)

What a curious little recreation that is. I didn’t actually take note of Mon Amour earlier than it launched, as a result of I see video games from Onion Video games as a present and I don’t wish to know what I’m getting till I unwrap it. So after I began the sport and my little flying man took an immediate nostril dive resulting in a recreation over, I used to be a bit of confused. I quickly surmised this recreation labored a bit like Flappy Chook, the place I would like to the touch both the display screen or my buttons simply so with a purpose to maintain my man from going too excessive or low and slamming into the obstacles surrounding him. As soon as he reaches the character on the different facet of the display screen and offers them a kiss, it’s off to the subsequent one. End all fifty phases and also you’ll save your princess. Properly, that’s… that’s not a lot, is it?

However as is at all times the case with Onion Video games, the floor learn is simply that. Each ninth stage is a particular one, full with distinctive obstacles and a random particular character, and the tenth sees you (hopefully) triumphantly coming into the citadel and correctly saving the characters you smooched. Except you took some hits alongside the way in which, during which case a few of these characters might be misplaced. Oh properly. Then there are these obstacles on the highest and backside of the display screen. Buildings, usually. They develop with every stage, leaving you with a smaller and smaller protected space to fly in. You’ll be able to push them again by gathering fruit or grabbing a large enough coronary heart.

Once you smooch a personality, hearts fly out in a route primarily based on the angle you approached them from. If these hearts glom collectively, they get greater and are value extra factors. After they get large enough, they acquire that building-shoving high quality. Managing these hearts and utilizing your fruits on the proper moments are the keys to surviving this recreation and racking up a excessive rating. You’ll additionally wish to shield the the characters you’ve rescued. They’ll comply with you after you make out with them, however when you mess up you’ll lose considered one of them. Solely by bringing them into the citadel tower on the finish of every set will you completely add them to your assortment. And also you’ll want all of them if you wish to convey the sport to its conclusion. In addition they assist your rating out, in fact.

Mon Amour isn’t essentially the most sophisticated or prolonged of video games, however it has extra depth and heft to it than you’d initially assume. For those who take pleasure in rating chasing, you’ll particularly discover loads to chew on right here. Like a basic arcade recreation of previous, it takes easy mechanics and offers you adequate to do with them that there finally ends up being a variety of scoring potentialities. Take that and wrap all of it up within the normal quirky Onion Video games allure, and also you’ve received an actual winner.

Cotton Guardian Power Saturn Tribute

This can be a curious case of three video games which can be technically a part of a set that you may purchase bodily on the Strictly Restricted Video games Retailer, however bought individually on the eShop. I’ll even be doing Mini-Views of every of the three video games right here, as that’s the method during which they’re most generally accessible to most gamers. Accessibility is a key level right here, as all three of the video games on this assortment are extremely costly to purchase of their unique varieties and haven’t been reissued prior to now. That ought to make this a slam dunk, however it’s sadly not that straightforward. As a set, these three video games have many shared benefits and drawbacks.

A rewind and slow-motion function is current, together with full button remapping, display screen measurement choices, and an anti-aliasing function that it would be best to flip off instantly. Why? As a result of it provides an additional body of enter lag to a batch of video games that’s already affected by vital issues in that space. The varied extras and options are largely the identical throughout all three video games, however the dreadful enter lag can also be fairly constant. This latter level elements closely in my scores for all three video games.

I don’t thoughts a bit of lag, however these video games have between 9 to eleven frames of enter lag every. That’s going to be noticeable for fairly a couple of individuals, even with the bare eye. Metropolis Connection has said will probably be attempting to repair this, however makes no guarantees as as to whether will probably be attainable or not. The video games are enjoyable and this assortment is appreciated in precept, however it’s laborious to advocate in its present state.

Cotton 2 – Saturn Tribute ($17.99)

At first blush, Cotton 2 is a considerably protected follow-up to the unique. You continue to play as a witch who rides round on her broom, firing off magic spells as particular assaults. New to this recreation is the power to seize absolutely anything or anybody and use them as a robust projectile assault. You’ll be able to even catch some enemy projectiles and ship them crusing again at your foes. Additionally new is a set of particular strikes you possibly can carry out by doing combating game-style instructions. These new parts make for a slightly uncommon horizontal shoot-em-up, and a really enjoyable one.

The extras current on this Saturn Tribute model make for an excellent higher expertise than the unique, significantly for individuals who aren’t shoot-em-up wizards. Sadly, the huge quantities of enter lag go away the sport feeling unresponsive, which provides a layer of frustration that Cotton 2 definitely didn’t want. It doesn’t make the sport unplayable by any means, however it hurts the playability each time the motion will get sizzling. There aren’t many choices for enjoying this recreation at an inexpensive worth, so I don’t blame anybody for selecting this one. I simply want the emulation had been higher dealt with.

SwitchArcade Rating: 3/5

Cotton Boomerang – Saturn Tribute ($17.99)

Cotton Boomerang is one thing of a remix of Cotton 2, and one which shoot-em-up followers are likely to desire. You get double the quantity of particular strikes, the power to throw objects in eight instructions, and a brand new multi-character set-up that provides you extra choices for a way you wish to play. Every of the selectable characters has their very own weapons, so that you’ll wish to strive all of them to see who’s best for you. You get to select three to take with you, and every one serves as a success. This replaces the life bar of Cotton 2, discovering a stability between its highly-forgiving nature and the one-hit kills of the unique recreation.

Whereas it recycles most of its property from the earlier recreation, there are some new sights to see in Cotton Boomerang every now and then. Extra importantly, the sport feels completely different to play in numerous methods. This is among the finer shoot-em-ups from the wonderful Saturn shooter library, and the extras right here ought to make for one of the best model of it but. Sadly, the nasty enter lag that permeates the three video games on this set does its whammy right here, too. That is an intensely difficult recreation that already had a bit extra lag than it ought to have on the Saturn, and the additional serving to thrown on prime of this Saturn Tribute takes a must have all the way down to a stable possibly.

SwitchArcade Rating: 3.5/5

Guardian Power – Saturn Tribute ($17.99)

Guardian Power trades out the colourful candy-loving witches and side-scrolling motion of Cotton for some multi-directional scrolling tank taking pictures. The display screen scrolls as it can, and also you simply need to roll with it. Whilst you can at all times shoot straight forward, no matter route which may be, you too can transfer the turret of your tank to shoot in every other route on the identical time. Cool gimmick. The Saturn flexes its 2D muscular tissues a bit on this recreation, with tons of sprites on display screen at occasions. There are a number of weapon pick-ups that offer you loads of methods to destroy your foes. It’s as SEGA Saturn of a recreation in its personal manner because the Cotton video games are in one other.

Whereas I wouldn’t say Guardian Power is wherever close to the extent of both of the Cotton video games, it’s a stable shoot-em-up in its proper. It’s a really technical recreation that requires you to pay numerous consideration always, and attempting to maintain monitor of your turret whereas dodging bullets assuredly requires an excessive amount of focus. Certainly, the sport may be very demanding and that’s maybe why it’s damage essentially the most by the enter lag that persists in these Saturn Tribute releases. Guardian Power has the worst lag of all of them, as much as a whopping eleven frames. It’s simply an excessive amount of, and in contrast to with the Cotton video games, I’m unsure it’s value struggling by right here.

The Caligula Impact 2 ($49.99)

The Caligula Impact was typically written off as a bargain-bin Persona, which I don’t suppose was actually a good or correct evaluation. The problems it was tackling and the way it went about tackling them had been fairly distinctive, which makes it slightly unlucky that the gameplay that delivered these concepts wasn’t terribly good. Now right here we’re with The Caligula Impact 2, and I can firmly say that the gameplay is improved in some ways over the earlier recreation. Sadly, the story virtually requires familiarity with the unique recreation so you possibly can’t actually simply leap in right here and get essentially the most out of it. Is the juice well worth the squeeze? This one is on the borderline, so it’s actually laborious to say. I’ll have a assessment of this one as quickly as I can handle it.

You’re a child alligator simply chilling out in your swamp when some annoying people arrive and begin to smash every little thing. As we do. You should develop up and turn into sturdy so that you could chase them away and save the swamp.

There are literally quite a lot of alligators to select from, and you’ll costume them in foolish outfits as a result of that is 2021 and you’ve got to have the ability to do at the least that a lot.

Duo Zombies ($7.99)

That is a kind of puzzle platformers the place it’s important to use a number of characters and their distinctive talents to clear every stage. On this case, you’ve received two characters. They’re zombies, however that isn’t significantly vital. They dab whenever you clear the stage, for no matter motive. In any other case, there isn’t actually a lot of observe right here to separate the sport from different titles with an identical construction.

The Darkish Aspect of the Moon: An Interactive FMV Thriller ($13.99)

Generally the title does many of the work for me. However sure, that is an FMV journey recreation. There are some selections to be made and a few gentle puzzles to unravel, resulting in considered one of 5 endings. The story sees you investigating the disappearance of your two youngsters in a small village referred to as Marywine. Issues take a decidedly sci-fi bent by the top of it, and the sport fortunately rolls with its foolish nature as an alternative of attempting to current itself significantly.
