    Pac-Man Museum+ is a great collection of games from the Pac-Man franchise. There are games you are sure to have played before, titles you haven't, and great multiplayer games to check out.

    BROK the InvestiGator is a beautiful-looking game with great voice acting and a more profound and complex story than you usually find in a point-and-click game. It is challenging and will work your brain; luckily, the ads you discover hidden in the levels can be used for hints!

    Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is a beautiful-looking game with an interesting story, unfortunately, you have to play through the repetitive Hello Abyss mode first before you can get to the really good parts in Deep in Abyss.

    Catmaze is a metroidvania with a deep fantasy story and a huge open world to explore. It has a few issues with collision detection, but it is still fun and worth checking out. Whatever you do, follow the cat.

    Full of style and substance, Soulstice is a joy to play, with tight, fast-paced combat and slick controls that make this an easy recommendation to anyone interested in a new hack and slash title.

    A few rough edges and occasional bugs don’t derail this fantastically immersive simulator. Train Sim World 3 is not only an incredibly relaxing experience, but arguably the best train simulator to-date.

    Loot River has addictive gameplay and you’ll want to play it again. However, there isn’t much story, which is a shame for the interesting world I found myself in.

    Bland, repetitive, and offering zero challenge, Zorro The Chronicles isn’t aiming to be the next must-play title. What it does instead is gives children an entry point into other titles of the genre, so could be one to try if you have little ones desperate to play something new.

    Grapple Dog is a charming and inventive 2D platformer with a solid foundation that’s not afraid to ramp up the challenge when needed. It still needs some work in the performance and accessibility departments, but fans of the genre should still check it out.

    Choppy combat and a lack of innovation aside, Steelrising is an incredibly unique take on the French Revolution with some brilliant environment and character designs, it just doesn’t do enough to make it stand out from other titles in the genre.

    State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition may be a repetitive game, but it boasts numerous improvements over its original release, even if it still has a bug or two.

    Midnight Fight Express is a short and brutal fight that doesn’t overstay its welcome. You’ll definitely come out of it with more than a few scrapes, but it’s all worth it just to watch the sun rise at the end.

    Restless Soul is a fun game, with great characters and a silly story that is sure to make you laugh. The game is a lot more challenging than the simple retro-looking graphics will make you believe.

    Turrican Anthology Vol. II is another good set of retro run-and-gun action games. This collection features titles that are more linear than those in the first collection, but two of the games are very similar to each other.

    Turrican Anthology Volume 1 is a fun collection of challenging, run-and-gun titles with tons of exploration from early in the Turrican franchise. The second Volume of games is available with more of the later releases so it may be worth looking into before buying this title.

    Alongside simplistic combat, The Tale of Bistun tells a compelling story that offers a glimpse into Persian mythology and doesn’t overstay its welcome. It keeps your attention with smooth traversal through charming landscapes backed by a solid narration.

    A good game that suffers from a few balancing issues in places and some frustration bugs. Nonetheless, still a solid and fun co-op experience.

    Though the amount of content is definitely lacking in Fred3ric, it offers straightforward gameplay and enjoyable melodies. Detailed backdrops also enhance the experience and keep levels looking fresh.

    Video Game Fables is a twist on your classic turn-based RPG with new fighting mechanics and an original story with a great sense of humour and non-typical heroes forced to save the day. There is a lot of grinding required but the system to level up your characters and weapons is interesting.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is a must-play title for retro game lovers or turtle fans. Having all these games from all the different consoles in one collection is amazing — so much easier than pulling out and hooking up all the systems!

    Dusk Diver 2 is a stylish, well-thought-out, and addictive hack n’ slash game, and while budgetary constraints might’ve bogged it down in a few areas, you still shouldn’t pass it over.

    Whilst the updated visuals and much improved control scheme are welcome touches, the cracks start to show quickly as it doesn’t do anything to improve on the PS2 original’s gameplay. However, this is still an easy one to recommend if you fancy something simple, but fun.

    Rune Factory 5 is a technically perfect game that meets all of its goals. Unfortunately for the player, the goals met are either not very impressive or downright uncomfortable.

    Story of a Gladiator offers tight combat mechanics and varied beat ‘em up gameplay, but difficulty spikes from level to level introduce a massive grind for upgrades.

    Never boring, always charming; Lost in Play is an incredible entry to the point-and-click genre, reviving my love for it. Any fan of it definitely should pick it up!

    Kao the Kangaroo makes me miss the old ways of doing things. While it doesn’t do much to challenge you, it’s still lots of fun. If you want to chill out with a cozy platformer, you can’t go wrong with this game.

    A fantastic addition to the Saints Row catalogue, though it’s marred by a bunch of glitches and bugs that keep it just shy of excellence.

    Taur is an excellent indie game that becomes a bit too grindy towards the end. The game has a unique spin on the tower defence formula and is fun once you get the hang of it.

    Cleaning is so much fun when it isn't in real-life, you just wash away all these feelings and feel better when playing PowerWash Simulator. Thank you FuturLab for an amazing game.

    Subnatica: Below Zero is an excellent survival game, being equally beautiful and terrifying. The narrative is strong but can feel out of place at times.
