Onion Assault (Switch) Review

Inspired by Super Mario Bros. 2, the small dev team at Horberg Productions released Onion Assault, a pick-up-and-throw side-scrolling platformer. The super smooth framerate, animations, and character design that pleased fans in Gunman Clive, Mechstermination Force, and Super Punch Patrol make a welcomed return.

Chained Echoes (Xbox One) Review with stream

A labor of love that took a small indie developer years to create, Chained Echoes is a confident digital download that takes the best elements of 16-bit RPGs and merges them wonderfully with modern quality of life features. This is a title that shouldn’t be overlooked especially if you cut your teeth on SNES RPGs. […]
