    Ittle Dew may not contain a lengthy adventure but it's so packed with fun that I highly recommend it. Replaying this indie classic definitely made me excited for the prospect of Ittle Dew 3. Will it ever happen? By Itan's beard, I hope so.

    As a huge Wonder Boy fan, I enjoyed Wonder Boy Returns Remix but it's definitely not a complete improvement over 2017's less than stellar offering. The fact that it's missing a lot of its content simply doesn't make much sense at all.

    Rad
    RAD is the sort of roguelike that's enjoyable once everything starts to click but after that, repetition and frustration unfortunately rear their ugly mutated heads. It's still a fun game but one that you'll likely only pick up and play every once in a while.

    Vasara Collection contains 2 incredibly fun classic shoot 'em ups that aren't very well known which makes this collection even more worthwhile. So, if you're an arcade shooter fan then buying this compilation should be a no-brainer.

    If you want to see how fun NeoGeo shmups can be then you need to play Prehistoric Isle 2. It's one of the best games in the genre.

    With so many must-play retro shoot 'em ups available on modern consoles, Ghost Pilots ends up being one disappointing game.

    If you have a fondness for Psikyo-style shmups then Aero Fighters 3 will make a perfect addition to your gaming library.

    It's certainly a good-looking and challenging shoot 'em up but Pulstar isn't quite as fun as many other NeoGeo shooters.

    It may not be as recognizable as many other retro shmups but Zed Blade is definitely worth playing in this day and age.

    Aero Fighters 2 is an enjoyable and funny shmup that's perfect for genre newbies as its degree of difficulty isn't very high.

    Although Last Resort is a solid shoot 'em up, it's nothing more than an R-Type wannabe that definitely hasn't aged as well.

    Crystal Crisis is definitely a step up from Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo although that step is a rather small one so it ends up feeling more like a retro copycat than a new and exciting puzzler. That being said, playing it is still a ton of fun, especially in multiplayer.

    Although its sense of uneasiness is well done, everything else about Shadows 2: Perfidia is far too basic to be thoroughly enjoyable.

    Even though it's enjoyable at first, #RaceDieRun's overly sensitive mechanics make playing it eventually become too frustrating.

    Although The Forbidden Arts has a lot of potential, its gameplay is so loose and unsatisfying that it's hard not to be disappointed.

    3D space shooters don't get much simpler than Subdivision Infinity DX but its gameplay is certainly tight and challenging enough.

    If you're a casual RPG fan then you likely won't enjoy Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition but those who relish in complicated old-school RPG systems, immersive dark fantasy worlds, and challenging encounters will find a lot to love here.

    I'm fairly certain that Epic Clicker Journey is the best game where you just tap on a screen but that's not really saying much is it?

    The original may have been disappointing yet Morphies Law: Remorphed manages to offer a heck of a lot of chaotic online mayhem.

    Indies don't get much more captivating than Gravity Ghost with its lovely visuals, spot-on audio, and enjoyable gravity-based gameplay.

    Enter the Gungeon was a super-fun game back in 2016 and now, it's even better. So, if you still haven't played it and you have a fondness for roguelike twin-stick shooters, picking up a copy of this delightful package is a must. [Physical Edition]

    Even if you suffer from bone spurs, going to war as the kickass President Michael Wilson in Metal Wolf Chaos XD is supremely enjoyable. That being said, it can be rather unforgiving at times and some patience is required to learn its ins and outs.

    I had a ton of fun with Forager for the first 10 hours or so but once I got to the point when the pacing becomes tedious, that fun quickly came to a halt. Nevertheless, I would still recommend Forager to fans of similar games.

    If you're looking for a must-have local multiplayer game then Tetsumo Party isn't that but it is fun for the few minutes that it lasts.

    With so many ways to virtually kill zombies, playing Zombie Driver in this day and age offers little more than shallow albeit satisfying fun.

    Telefrag VR features fast-paced gun-based combat but its content is rather limited, especially because it's for only up to 2 players.

    Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries is one of my favourite indies of the year with its rewarding gameplay and wealth of content.

    Wargroove definitely took a while to grow on me since it starts so slow but once it did, I was very happy with what is has to offer.

    If you're not turned off by Songbird Symphony's lack of challenge then it's sure to provide plenty of lighthearted entertainment.
