Freeware Garden: HHH

Hugo’s House of Horrors, the parser driven shareware adventure game I played back during the dark days of the 5.25″ floppy, was a demented and, many would argue, nonsensical game.

I've always thought that Shantae is a bit of an underrated series. While WayForward can be hit or miss these days, I can always rely on their ability to craft a good platformer. Shantae: Risky's Revenge for the DSi is one of my favorite games... Read More»

Hail: Risk Of Rain Update Adds Two New Characters

Risk of Rain looks like a side-scrolling roguelite-shooter and in most regards that’s what it is. It’s also got a lot in common with ARPGs, in the way its characters’ skills function and in how a newly unlocked character can completely change the way you approach the game. The latest update, version 1.2, is significant ... Read More»

Team Fortress TwoOoOOooOo Halloween Events Return

I wouldn’t say ‘boo’ to a ghost. That’s rude and, worse, trite — like saying “Aha!” to Steve Coogan. No, if I e.g. met a ghost rattling chains I might ask “What’s shaking?” Top gag. My problem is a short temper with ghosts. The last time jangling disturbed my sleep, I woke the whole block ... Read More»

Go Further Than Halfway: Update Adds Mod Support

Halfway is a turn-based sci-fi tactics game in the vein of XCOM, but with a linear storyline tying together its battles and back-at-base sections. Our review called it “almost there, but not quite”, because we like to make clever puns based on the names of things. But now you might be able to help get ... Read More»
