Review: Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate

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

Review: Speaking Simulator

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.

Review: Shovel Knight: King of Cards & Showdown

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

Review: Might & Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos

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.”

Review: Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient

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

Review: BurgerTime Party!

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

Review: Oninaki

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.

Quick-Look: Street Heat

When I was handed Street Heat (Steam, $7.99 in Early Access) to play and told what it was, I have to say my interest was piqued as a person who enjoyed many of the early arcade and NES racing games like Super Off Road, R.C. Pro Am and Super Sprint. This game is inspired by

Review: Hand of Fate 2

Your Fate is Not Sealed Hand of Fate 2 (Steam, $29.99 at the time of writing) is not an easy game to describe. A direct sequel to the first game by indie developer Defiant Development, which I had never heard of prior to being tasked to review, HoF2 is a blend of several things both
