Songbird Symphony: Demo Review

My newest demo review covers an adorable little game called Songbird Symphony, in which an orphan chick named Birb sets out to find where he came from. This game is a platformer with musical elements, and what it lacks in difficulty, it makes up for in charm!

Eventide: Slavic Fable: Demo Review

In the recent past, I played the demo for a casual puzzle game called Grim Legends 2.  It would appear that Artifex Mundi is responsible for a lot of similar games, as I also had the opportunity to try out the demo for Eventide: Slavic Fable, another fantasy-themed puzzle game with gorgeous artwork.  Though this…

Embers of Mirrim: Demo Review

Embers of Mirrim is a side-scrolling platformer where you play as two creatures that were joined as one. What distinguishes this game from other platformers is the ability to split into two embers, which can be controlled separately with the analog sticks. Though this is a unique concept in theory, the execution is where this…

World of Final Fantasy: Demo Review

World of Final Fantasy is a game I’ve had a passing interest in for the last couple of years, even though I knew nothing about it, except for the vague notion that it featured Final Fantasy characters from across the franchise.  It wasn’t until quite recently, however, that I decided to check out the “Dungeon…

Trine 2: Demo Review

One of the games I grew up with was The Lost Vikings for the SNES, where you would control three unique characters in order to solve puzzles and reach the exit alive.  Recently, I downloaded a demo of a game called Trine 2: The Complete Story that feels somewhat similar.  You control three characters, Amadeus…

Wanderjahr: Demo Review

Wanderjahr is a cute and colorful JRPG with a deceptive level of difficulty.  In fact, the game’s subtitle is “Try Again or Walk Away”, which seems like a clear challenge to the player.  Are you going to try again and figure out where you went wrong…or give up?  Well, considering I took the latter route,…

Yoku’s Island Express: Demo Review

When I read that Yoku’s Island Express was described as an “open-world pinball adventure”, I had my doubts.  I don’t mind pinball in short bursts, but I couldn’t believe they could actually make an engaging “adventure” out of it.  But seeing as this was a free demo, I had nothing to lose but time.

Disgaea 4 Complete: Demo Review

Though I’ve played a decent number of RPGs over the years, one subset of the genre in which I have little experience is tactical RPGs.  I was first introduced to them during a short span of time spent playing the Shining Force games on this Sega Genesis Collection I have for the XBox 360, though…

Oninaki: Demo Review

Oninaki is an action-RPG created by Tokyo RPG Factory where you play as a Watcher, someone who brings peace to the dead and helps guide them to the next world.  The game features real-time combat, and you fight alongside different spirits called Daemons.  As someone who usually likes games with darker stories, I have to…

Tearaway Unfolded: Demo Review

Out of all the demos I’ve played thus far, my favorites have easily been Unravel and the subject of today’s post, Tearaway Unfolded.  Initially known simply as Tearaway on the PS Vita, this remake for the PS4 makes use of the controller’s motion controls and touchpad.  The game has a really adorable papercraft aesthetic, and…
