    Young Souls isn’t just one of the best indie games on Stadia, it’s one of the best indie games of 2021. A pitch-perfect side scroller that barely puts a foot wrong, this is one game you don’t want to miss out on.

    Overall, Young Souls feels like a more mature cartoon in video game form, in a good way. It features two strong gameplay loops with satisfying elements and feedback. While there were some gameplay decisions that I wish were different, Young Souls is a solid package. Also as a note, it ran smoothly via Stadia, which was actually my first experience with the platform. All in all, Young Souls is a video game experience that is more than it first appears, and should not be overlooked.

    As the kind-hearted Professor learned, give Jenn and Tristan a chance, and they’ll impress you in more ways than one. Young Souls is an exceptional adventure you shouldn’t miss if you’re searching for the next great game to tackle with a friend or want a quality RPG brawler to dig into alone.

    Young Souls is a beautiful-looking game with challenging combat, but it does not have enough variety to keep it interesting when you're having to put up with multiple crashes and glitches.

Where technical issues prevail, a well written story, funny dialogue, addictive gameplay and a beautiful art style make up for it. I have yet to 100% it but I'm sure its only a few days until I can consider that done. Bravo to the two devs for creating this gem on one of the most underrated platforms. Full Review »

    Sometimes games come out. Sometimes they're not as bad as you fear they will be. Sometimes they're good. This seems to be one of those last kind.

    Really a amazing fun addictive game. And I'm a big fan of co-op and Couch co-op.
