    Another game that helped redefine 2D gaming.

    What did we have so far? Braid,Limbo, Trine, Bionic Commando, and perhaps a few others I failed to mention. The game takes place in 1986 during the world zombie outbreak. This game has it all, zombies, an intensive... Read Full Review

    Not great but not bad either.

    Finish the game 20 min ago. It's a ok game. I like the story mostly. Not great but not bad either. You feel more like you are playing the old school Prince of Persia game with zombie and guns. The graphic are not bad ... Read Full Review

    Beautiful date without a happy ending.

    This game is Beautiful. It is just lacking immersion in game play. This game suffered from mediocre voice acting that also was difficult to hear at times. Secondly, the cut scenes were not optimized for a HD screen. ... Read Full Review

    I'm a fan of the sub genere of zombies in the survival horror genere, there are just almost endless possiblities and things to do with it, this is a good edition to the sub genere. What I like about this game is that ... Read Full Review

    Visually a marvel but a gameplay nightmare that fortunately ends fast.

    Visuals and audio are both above the indie quality I've seen for a while. Except for some soldiers speech that are poor as a '92 game. Jumping, sliding, climbing and rolling in a 3D environment but with 2D controls is fu... Read Full Review

    Tequila Works should be commended for trying to spice up the use of zombies. My Darkzero review.

    It seems even the Summer of Arcade can't avoid the infestation of zombies that have plagued the games industry for the last few years. I don't personally have any beef with zombies, but what I do have a problem with is h... Read Full Review

    The game has a lot of atmosphere, but is full of bugs and only a few hours long.

    The Good: Excellent atmosphere that draws you in, gorgeous graphics, steady pace makes the game really fun, always being on the run provides a great rush The Bad: Bugs and glitches, awkward controls and mechanics, und... Read Full Review

    I review many games, and on this one I say:"Its different, give it a try!"

    Firstly this is a different sought of game that allows the player to only see the scene from the side, like a Miniclip flash game except way better. The story is the same-old-same-old and really nothing new at all, in... Read Full Review

    Dead Light is not as I had expected. understood in a good way, had thought that this game would be a piece of crap, but damn must be honest to say that it is certainly not a piece of crap. it's actually pretty good. to l... Read Full Review

    It reminded me a little of 'The Walking Dead' TV Show, which is a very good thing.

    For my first real, proper game review – you know where you sit down and play, but take notes at the same time, with one of those pen things with the paper and the hand movements – I thought I would go for a game that I c... Read Full Review

    Great

    Deadlight is set in 1986, a time when the absence of modern communication devices amplifies the sense of despair and isolation. Seattle area resident Randall Wayne is a mess. His wife and young daughter are missing, he&r... Read Full Review
