Have you ever spent time playing an RPG-type game and you felt like you were stuck going around in circles? Well, I have some good news, because today we have a case where not only is going around in circles a good thing, it’s central to the game mechanics. Loop Hero, developed by Four Quarters
I love Tetris. It’s among my favorite video games of all time. Puyo Puyo…. isn’t too bad either. But I really liked the idea of Tetris colliding with another puzzle game franchise, even if it wasn’t one I was that familiar with at the time. And so I bought Puyo Puyo Tetris. It was a
Blam! If it moves, kill it! Shoot everything on the screen! Blow them to smithereens! The space shooter genre is classic, and dates back almost to the beginning of video games. Probably because they were easy to make, with a black screen being “space,” but also because they were satisfying. See how long you can
Hello to all the puzzle fans out there! Today, we had the chance to take a look at the upcoming Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. Personally, I put many an hour into the original, so I’m quite excited to share this sneak peek of the Nintendo Switch version with you. For those who haven’t played the
We seem to have a bit of a car game trend going on here at Gamer Escape. No complaints there. You may be surprised to learn that I enjoy me a good car game, especially those of the less realistic, more arcade-style variety. Today’s title seems to synergize with that, so let’s dive right into
I have some fond memories of playing the wide range of beat-’em-up games available in the arcades in the late 1980s and early 90s. Some of my favorites of the arcade era being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game, X-Men and The Simpsons. These all boiled down to being incredibly simple; just walk from
So I was actually playing today’s game, Deleveled, 15 years ago. I played it every time my friends and I tried to kill Absolute Virtue. Oh wait, this game is new? And it’s a puzzle game, not an MMORPG? Oh right, that was Final Fantasy XI, easy mistake to make…
So, do you like music? I think most would say yes, right? But then you get down to what kind of music. Do you like electronic? No? Well, this isn’t the game for you. Review over.
There’s nothing quite like Fight Crab. Of that, I am certain. But this is a case where both words and emotions, to some degree, fail me. So I’ll just have to muddle through and see if I can arrange words in a way that can describe this game. Are you ready? Let’s go! All right,
Today on the docket we have for you a sneak peek at an interesting dungeon-crawler-type game by the name of Blightbound, published by Devolver Digital and developed by Ronimo Games. This tough-as-nails game is multiplayer-only (three players, local or online), so I had to enlist some help from two fellow members of the Gamer Escape
I’m something of a casual fan of rogue-likes. I don’t play them heavily, but they’re always a fun diversion when I need to break up my usual gaming schedule. It doesn’t happen that often but, as luck would have it, one was placed on my figurative “desk” to try out. Here we have Danger Scavenger,
3D Realms is a company I’ve not had much personal experience with, but like most, I do know them for the Duke Nukem franchise. After hitting it big with some 2D platformers and the renowned Duke Nukem 3D, it’s been somewhat of a rough ride for the Duke ever since, with Duke Nukem Forever being
This game made my brain hurt. But whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on what kind of game it is, and what triggered the hurt. If a sports game makes your brain hurt, that’s probably not a good thing! On the other hand, if it’s a puzzle game, it’s probably part
Ahh, Koei Tecmo’s Warriors franchise. Ever since Hyrule Warriors (my first Warriors game) I’ve had a bit of a soft spot for you. While you don’t change a whole lot from one iteration to the next (most of the time), you never fail to deliver a great way to kill a few hours bashing through
Are any of you familiar with QWOP? It was an incredibly small and simple Flash game created over a decade ago with a simple goal: make an athlete run as far as possible by individually commanding the runner’s thigh and calf muscles to extend or contract, using the Q/W and O/P keys, hence the name.
Okay guys, this opening is going to be longer than usual, so buckle yourselves in! If you’re a fan of retro-styled platformers, you’re all but guaranteed to be familiar with Shovel Knight. Originally released in 2014 to critical acclaim, it was an example of how awesome an 8-bit-styled game can look, play, and sound, with
Here at Gamer Escape, doing the same-old, same-old just isn’t good enough. So we’re switching things up a bit here with a mobile game review! Now I’m personally not the biggest mobile game player out there. That said, I do have a bit of a soft spot for what are commonly known as “gacha games.”
Hospital From Hell XSEED’s at it again, bringing me more stuff to write about. And what’s this you say? It’s Halloween? That’s great then, because we’ve got a horror game on the docket today in Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient. Now I will preface this by saying I’m not personally familiar with the series, but
Let me preface this review by saying that I’m definitely old enough to remember the early arcade days, when gaming meant going out to an arcade, bowling alley, or other sort of fun center and popping quarters into arcade cabinets. Yes, they still exist, but in the US, arcades are a shadow of their former
Tokyo RPG Factory is Square Enix's arm apparently dedicated to bringing classic style RPGs and action RPGs into the modern age. Up to this point, they've had somewhat mixed results, with some mediocre titles with great ideas that didn't quite pan out. So far, one thing I can say about all of their work is that it always looks and sounds beautiful.
