A list of all reviews I have done and also some standalone mini-reviews that didn't make it onto my blog.

Note (experimental rating system): These ratings are not designed to compare games in different genres (as I would say this is impossible), but instead are aimed at portraying how well I thought they did at what they tried to do; One side effect of this is that they might not have the same score they received when I previously reviewed them.

Solar 2 A simplistic solar system simulation. (FI)A very interesting and unique experience, but overall very very repetitive, short, and lacking much re-playability.8/10 Game, Review

Dead Cyborg Episode 1: The Beginning of the Death A full 3D graphical adventure set in a sci-fi post apocalyptic humorous future. (FIB)Entertaining story and dialogue, but the puzzles could use smoe work.8/10 Game, The Indie Elitist
Dig-N-Rig A mining and building game with a few elements of platforming and action. (FI)Addictive and very fun.9/10 Game, Release
Red Eclipse A free open source multiplayer FPS. (FI)Fun and well made if somewhat generic even with the unique and fun sci-fi weapons.7.5/10 Game
Apply 1000mg A platforming game with very unique pixel art graphics. (FIB)Great graphics, interesting story, Ludum Dare #20 winner, worth checking out.8/10 Game, Review
Narbacular Drop A platforming game that makes use of portals. (FI)I am surprised that the people at Valve saw so much potential in this concept that inspired Portal. It simply is not that great of a platformer and the portals do not seem fun at all.5/10 Game
Shit Bit An experimental survival game that has you playing as a bit of shit. (FI)Extremely simple, repetitive, and not enjoyable.3/10 Game
Cart Life A retail, and to some extent life, simulation. (FI)With unique and detailed graphics, a big open world filled with much to do, A middle aged balding man who is addicted to cigarettes and talks to his cat. All this and much more is available in Cart Life. Still I did not enjoy the gameplay at all still have no idea about how to play the game after reading the manual.7/10 Game
Don't Go Alone A short and simple top down shooter. (FI)An interesting concept where you are actually not even doing the shooting, that is left up to the stranger who is following you.7/10 Game
Blendimals A puzzle platformer. (FI)Overall, I am not convinced of the concept nor the execution of this game. The idea is that you mix the attributes of a group of animals and the use your creation to navigate a level.4/10 Game
Activate the Three Artefacts and Then Leave A unique 3D minimalistic exploration game that makes heavy use of audio. (FI)A interesting experience if nothing else, AtTAatL sets you the task of exploring a sphere for three artefacts with surprisingly disorienting visuals.
Realm of the Mad God A simple addicting coop fantasy MMORPG. (FIB)Incredibly addicting and easy to get into, this rigid class and loot based fantasy MMORPG is a must play for all RPG fans. Additionally it has some very interesting coop element.9.5/10 Game, Review
Katawa Shoujo Act 1 A visual novel about disability and love at a unique anime styled high school for the disabled. (FI)Engrossing and containing several hours of gameplay for a single playthrough and multiple paths this story is worth experiencing with its often weird and sometimes zany characters that still completely relatable.9.5/10 Game
Frozen Synapse A turned based strategy game using individual modern military units. (I)Surprisingly simple commands and small number of units make this one easy game to get into, but the brutal difficulty and complex nature of a match after it starts makes it very hard to enjoy without a lot of skill.8.5/10 Game
Solace A simple shoot 'em up about the five stages of grief. (FI)An interesting title and a worthy experience; But the gameplay could of been more fun.7/10 Game
Bulletstorm A run-and-gun over the top FPS.A fun if totally unbalanced and unpolished game.7/10 Game, Review
Proun A minimalist racing game. (FI)An incredibly fast paced, simple racing game; Where the track is a small cable, which you can steer around, and the obstacles are bright geometric shapes. It is undoubtedly beautiful, fun, and unique.8.5/10 Game
Hoard A action strategy game that puts you in control of a dragon and directs you to go raid human settlements in search of gold. (I)An increadably interesting concept, but from my experience actully playing a SINGLE match it is not participially interesting or fun too play.5/10 Game
Ninja Senki An action platformer and obvious Mega Man clone. (FI)Fast paced, incredibly challenging, and tight controls. If you liked Mega Man then you will probably like Ninja Senki.7/10 Game
Benthic Zone A short 2D graphical adventure set on the floor of a lake. (FI)Containing absolutely no plot but a wonderful game none-the-less with great beautiful graphics and some rather normal inventory puzzles.8.5/10 Game
Shoot First A third person, real time, Rogue-like, shooter. (FI)This unique combination of genres seems like unlikely companions but it works very well. Being a Rogue-like, Shoot First takes place in multi layers random dungeons filled with monsters, wizards, and traps; Is filled with loot in the form of coin and equipment; And has a character levelling system; But plays more like a modern third person shooter. And what is more allows two player coop play!7.5/10 Game
Tight A 2D shooter with RPG elements where you must continually flee the boss. (FI)A great consept where you flee a giant boss monster through a solid substance. Meaning that you must split your fire between the boss, other enemies, and tunnelling. But a unbalanced RPG system makes the game either very hard if not impossible if you don't know the trick or ridiculously easy if you do. Not that the game is not fun and worth a playthrough, but mostly I am just hoping that someone takes this idea and fully realises it in another game.3/10 Game
Hyperabuse Monolith A 3D minimalistic first-person game about harassing people in the streets. (FI)I don't understand this title. The graphics and game play go past minimalistic to almost non existent where the plot resides. So I almost baulk at calling this a game, which would normally make it a artistic title but it is too minimalistic to have any deeper meaning as far as I can tell.N/A Game
Puzzle Agent 2 A cartoony, 2D, graphical adventure/puzzle game set in a weird town.An excellent title whose main attribute is the cohesive and entertaining universe created to host both Puzzle Agent 2 and its prequel.9/10 Game, Review
Something Amiss A three part episodic adventure game set in present time and featuring a sci-fi plot. (FIB) Rather hit and miss, nothing is bad but then nothing is particularly good either.6/10 Game
What Makes you Tick A 2D graphical adventure set in the Victorian era of inventions and inventors. (FI) A great solid inventory based, verb coin interface using, adventure title set in the romantic and exciting era of outrageous inventions, inventors, and villains.9/10 Game, Review
Beat Hazard A top-down space shooter crossed with a music game. (I) The two main features of Beat Hazard are use of your own personal music library in game and having the music effect the power and type of weapon you have. Overall, this makes it into a game crossed with a music visualization, which is interesting but does not really seem to work given any songs that are not constantly loud.6.5/10 Game
The Legend of Crystal Valley A epic high fantasy adventure in the vein of The Longest Journey. Great concept but a hit and miss execution. Still it can be quite fun. 6.5/10 Game, AL_Review
Technobabylon: Part 3 In Nuntius Veritas A single room graphical adventure set in a scifi future. (FI) In part three we are back in control of Latha and again must escape in this single room adventure where we finally start to uncover what has been happening. 9.4/10 Game
Terreria A hack and slash sandbox adventure inspired by Minecraft. (I) Basically Minecraft in 2D and with far more monsters, weapons, and high tier materials to grind or mine. 9/10Game, Review
Another World A challenging action platformer with aspects of exploration and natural puzzles set on a brutal and mysterious alien world. Incredibly challenging with some of the most ambiguous puzzles you can find in a action platformer; But that does not stop this game from being an amazing, very cinematic, experience. 9.5/10Game, Review

Less Than Three A short escape the room adventure by Ben304 with plot and gameplay themes of an RPG. (FI) A fun short adventure that explores the lives and feelings of the support characters in a RPG party. With this interesting premise and the detail that went into the endearing world and dialogue it is more then worth the download. 8.5/10Game
Perry Rhodan: The Myth of the Illochim (AKA The Immortals of Terra) A sci-fi adventure set in the hefty Perry Rhodan universe. A highly polished sci-fi adventure set in the long running classic science fiction series Perry Rhodan. With puzzles reminiscent of the The Dig it is a must play in my opinion. 8.5+/10Game, Review
Don't Take it Personally, Babe, it Just Ain't Your Story A visual novel set in a high school classroom in the year 2027. (FI) A engrossing, but hardly interactive, game filled with lots of teen drama and sporting themes of homosexuality, youth sexuality, and privacy. 7.5/10Game, Review
Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter A unique FPS that launches hordes of mostly melee characters at you. A fun divergence from the hordes of serious military shooters available; Fun, gory, and violent but the graphics could use more detail. 8.5/10Game, Review
The Wager A simple pirate adventure game revolving around your mission to collect as much money in a limited time as possible. (FI) Overall too simple and far more of the game is played out because of random generation rather then interaction with the player. 6.5/10Game
Capsized A 2D action shooter set on a unexplored alien world. (I) Great looking press with lots of hype before launch, but just not quite as you might of imagined while playing. Nothing is quite as good. The graphics, while still vibrant and unique, just don't look as great in high resolution; The platforming is hindered by the player tending to stick to walls and really being far too good at it; And most importantly the combat is rather boring, with the AI being far to simple to for the game's good. 6.5/10Game
AlternativA A point and click graphical adventure set in a cyberpunk dystopian future controlled by a single totalitarian government. Good looking and a interesting story concept, but horribly implemented with the worst puzzles imaginable and bad dialogue and plot. 5/10Gallery, Game

Digital: A Love Story A visual novel set completely on a single computer with a modem that can connect to BBSes. (FI) Superbly engrossing and realistic, a must play if only because it is too unique to explain properly. 9.8/10Review, Game

Technobabylon: Part 2 The Weight of the World A graphical adventure set in a moderately dystopian scifi future.

Keepsake A third-person point and click graphical adventure set in a magical high fantasy land. It seems proper fantasy titles are few and far between, for some reason. So if you are into that sort of thing then you have to check out Keepsake. It has a lot of flaws, but none of them are particularly annoying. 7.5/10 Gallery, Game
Amerzone A first-person graphical  adventure set in a slightly fantastical world. The first game by Benoît Sokal and set in the same universe as his Syberia series. More a of Myst clone then his future work, but still worth a playthough for any of his fans. 9.2/10 None, Game

The Abbey of Crime (aka La Abadía del Crimen) A isometric graphical adventure made for the Amstrad CPC 6128 in 1987 but ported to many system both old and modern. This game is apparently considered one of the best of its era, but for a modern gamer it is likely unplayable. N/A Review

Shogun: Total War A melding of turned based strategy and real time tactics, were you are given control of huge armies of ancient Japanese soldiers. The first, and my favourite, game in the only series to give to full tactical control over huge armies that act realistic, with fatigue and moral. A no-nonsense take on the formula. 9/10 Overview
Medieval: Total War Like its predecessor, Medieval: Total War is a combination of turned based and real time strategy genres. More troops, more land, more new gameplay that I thought simply distracted from the core mechanic. 8/10 Overview

Minecraft A 3D indie sandbox building game with some elements of the action, exploration, and RPGs genres. (I) An very unique creative game with great solo and multiplayer modes and many different reason to play. But as it is still in beta it does still somewhat feel incomplete. 8/10 Review
The Fall Trilogy: Separation A Kheops game that mixes the genres of hidden object and graphical adventure with 3D graphics and the option of node based or free movement. (I) With its extensive and well thought out help/hint system it is a great game for any newcomers to the adventure or puzzle genres; But still potentially holds a lot of entertainment for even the most hardcore fans of either. 7/10 Review
