Summer in Mara: Demo Review

In recent years, I’ve been finding myself increasingly interested in playing relaxing games, so when I downloaded the demo for Summer in Mara, I was quite curious to see if this was the next casual game to add to my library.  This game seems like it could be a bit like Harvest Moon meets Animal…

Figment 2: Creed Valley: Demo Review

Figment 2: Creed Valley is an upcoming adventure game that takes place in the human mind.  It is scheduled for release on October 15, 2022, but if you’re not inclined to wait, there is a demo on the Switch that grants players access to the game’s first level (though I saw videos online that showed…

Cogen: Sword of Rewind: Demo Review

Cogen: Sword of Rewind is a 2D action game where you have the ability to rewind time by up to 3 seconds using the Ouroboros System, a feature of Kohaku’s talking sword, ExeBreaker.  In a way, the game gave me some old-school Mega Man vibes, with the high difficulty, side-scrolling gameplay, and the buttload of…

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer: Demo Review

Cadence of Hyrule is a rhythm-adventure game that takes place in the world of The Legend of Zelda! Apparently, some guy named Octavo put the King of Hyrule to sleep with his magic, and it’s up to Link (and several other playable characters) to defeat Octavo and his four champions.  Although I’m typically not a…

Raji: An Ancient Epic: Demo Review

Raji: An Ancient Epic is one of those intriguing looking games I had my eye on for a while.  Set in ancient India and based on Hindu mythology, the game follows Raji’s adventure to rescue her little brother Golu, who was kidnapped by demons.  The unique setting and theme of the game really helps it…

WarioWare: Get It Together! Demo Review

In case you’re not familiar, the WarioWare series consists of a bunch of quirky “microgames” that must be completed within several seconds.  Though I had watched people play a handful of these games on YouTube in the past, it wasn’t until I downloaded the demo for WarioWare: Get It Together! on the Switch that I…

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince – Demo Review

A few months ago, I reviewed the demo for Trine 2, a side-scrolling puzzle-platformer where you play as three unique characters, Amadeus the wizard, Pontius the knight, and Zoya the thief.  Recently, I had the pleasure of playing the demo for the much more recent Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

When the Past Was Around: Demo Review

While I’m not normally the type to play casual games, I’ve been finding them to be increasingly relaxing as of late.  In particular, I’ve been trying out demos for various point-and-click puzzle games, one of which is called When the Past Was Around.  The game has a simple, but pleasant art style and tells the…

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…
