    Irony Curtain is a competent successor to the point-and-click adventure games of yore, provided you can bear its finicky gameplay and tepid satire.

    World End Syndrome is an absolutely gorgeous visual novel, let down by a few gameplay ideas that simply don't work.

    Super Neptunia RPG isn't very good. Play SteamWorld Quest for a decent 2D RPG, or Octopath Traveller. Just don't bother with this.

    Selma and the Wisp is boring, poorly-designed, and no fun at all to play, but it is at least quite short.

    Kotodama: The 7 Mysteries of Fujisawa is going to appeal to a very niche audience, but if you fit into that category, you're probably going to have a good time here.

    Word Forward is an extremely accessible word game with a compelling twist to the word-jumble format.

    A wealth of clever tweaks to a well-worn formula fills Shards with strategy and fun, although solo play is limited.

    Puyo Puyo Champions is a fun, cheap entry into the world of Puyo Puyo, but don't expect to be playing it for very long.

    Golf Blitz isn't just a great golf game, it's a great mobile game full stop.

    Steam World Quest isn't a perfect RPG, but it's a damn good one. If you want some bitesized, simple card battling mechanics on the go, this is an excellent choice.

    Our World is Ended could be a brilliant, interesting sci-fi visual novel, but it's too busy telling crass jokes and harassing women to care.

    Ultrawings delivers a fun simulator experience which suffers thanks to the absence of VR and its use of the Switch's tech.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The VideoKid is a mostly safe play on Paperboy that excels when going wild with its garish visuals and legally-questionable references.

    There might not be the depth of a real PGA game here, or the wackyness of the other end of the golf game spectrum, but as a mobile dive-in-and-out experience it's pretty much spot on. Pick it up and you'll see what I mean.

    OCO
    OCO is a remarkably tasteful and calming puzzle-platformer with a beguiling audio element.
    • 79 Metascore

    Mechstermination Force feels like Cuphead meets Shadow of the Colossus, and it's absolutely worth your time.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Rolando: Royal Edition is an entertaining platformer, but even with the extra polish it's showing its age.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This feels a bit retro, but still holds up as a solid dungeon crawler.

    Nelke doesn't feel like a celebration of Atelier, but closer to a cash-in.

    There's not much to do in Sprout: Idle Garden, but you're going to love doing all of it.

    Golf Peaks is smart, beautiful, and sticks firmly to the thin line between too hard and too easy throughout.

    Claybook is gorgeous and playful, but its core gameplay focus simply isn't compelling.
    • 70 Metascore

    RICO serves up fantastic doses of frantic action, and co-op play compensates for its limited formula.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Baba is You is a smart, silly, brilliant puzzler that demands your attention - ignore it at your own risk.

    The Caligula Effect: Overdose has one good idea, and it squanders it with a bunch of other terrible choices.
    • 84 Metascore

    Immortal Rogue is fantastic - it's got some problems, for sure, but you should still pick it up at your earliest convenience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cinders is a magnificent example of how to update an old story for a modern age, and visual novel fans should pick it up immediately.

    A bright, smart card crawl that will keep you entertained for hours.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Tetris 99 is chaotic, ridiculous, and a little barebones, but it's also a damn good game of Tetris.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It has a few flaws, but for the most part Linn: Path of Orchards is one of the most intriguing platformers we've played in a while.
