I See Red's key art features gunfire and action in its signature red tint.

I See Red Review

I See Red is a twin-stick roguelike that doesn't let you aim with the right stick and fails at being a roguelike. At least it looks cool.

Return to Monkey Island Review

Return to Monkey Island returns to somewhere deep in the Caribbean for one final adventure with Guybrush, Elaine and LeChuck, and we take the plunge off the plank to see if this game can possibly live up to the 32 years of hype it has behind it. Spoiler alert - it does.

A landscape shot of PowerWash Simulator's cover, showcasing the titular cleaner in between a clean half with their van and a cat, and a dirty muck-ridden half.

After a promising start, PowerWash Simulator begins to expand in a way you cannot tackle feasibly, but only in scale. It’s one mechanic polished well enough to get by for a short while.
