The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile – PC Game Review

What is The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a brutal fast-paced action platformer. It’s gruesome, violent and full of action. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile was originally released in 2011 on Xbox 360. From 12 May, 2017 it’s upgraded version is available on STEAM. The art style is characteristic for Ska Studios. I played their souls-like game Salt and Sanctuary before The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and the art style is identical. No shame. It’s still unique and remarkable and what’s more important it fits the game styles their making.

Rise & Shine – PC Game Review

Close your eyes and imagine that this whole planet is a big game. What was it like? Can you even imagine it? If you can’t, Rise & Shine will easily show you! Hold your hats, because this will be very special and often very nerve-wracking ride full of challenges and fun.

I get it. You aren’t much smarter from the initial callout, so let’s start over again from the beginning and I will try my best to introduce Rise & Shine to you. Rise & Shine is a 2D game, which on the first sight looks like a classic old-school arcade game. But that could be only your first impression! Although you’ll enjoy a lot of shooting and guts on the street, the most of the time in the game you will be rather thinking over a strategy how to survive current fight more than how to blow up someone’s head and look in the bowels of his thoughts in the brain as Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movie!

Dead Age – PC Game Review

What is Dead Age?

Dead Age is a strategy game about surviving in the world full of living dead. Can you cope in chaos? Can you survive in the hopelessness? Do you like tough decisions and can you withstand the consequences? Are you fans of the zombie classic The Walking Dead? In that case you definitely have to try Dead Age. I personally appreciate that Dead Age’s gaming mechanism is totally different from The Walking Dead series. Dead Age is a combination of old school and modern trends. Good old turn-based fights require a plan, a strategy and fast response in order to survive with minimal losses and while being useful to your blooming community. Dead Age will torment you with a lot of factors. How will you deal with daily fear of your bare life? How will you deal with the loss of those closest to you? And how long will you survive?

Floppy Heroes – PC Game Review

What is Floppy Heroes

Floppy Heroes is a game based on physics, where you fight in zero gravity. Because you can’t fully control your heroes, you have to be even more alert and react as quick as possible. Your task in this game is simple – to kill all your enemies, but to achieve that isn’t that easy. In single-player mode you are on your own, in multi-player you can built a team of up to 6 local players (2 on the keyboard + 4 gamepads). Floppy Heroes also offers different variations of multi-player mode: all vs titan, all vs all or a tournament. What Floppy Heroes forgot is to add a co-op option into Single-player mode. You can play co-op in Custom Game-modes, but levels don’t gradate there. I personally find co-op + level gradation very important to keep players motivated in this types of games.

Shooting Stars! – PC Game Review

What is Shooting Stars!

Shooting Stars! is a game on the principle of a very old game named Space Invaders, where you move around with your hero on the game screen always of the same size and a lot of enemies in various battle formations flow towards you. Shooting Stars! is indeed funnier than Space Invaders! Authors had replaced the alien attack on the planet Earth with aliens controlling current trendy stars and meme stars.

In Shooting Stars! you are playing as courageous hero named Tscherno. Tscherno’s equipment is his white kitty, which can shoot laser from its eyes. To move around the game screen Tscherno uses hoverboard, which looks like it was from Back To The Future movie. This is definitely very original compared to the Space Invaders!
