Number 5 is alive! No? Well, five games for this edition of Not Enough Steam Reviews!, in any case. One for each weekday, so you could… buy one daily, Monday through Friday? In any case, do check out my picks!
Brief reminder: no Early Access, no Virtual Reality -- what else? Oh, and less than 10 user reviews on the day I go through the lot (which is also when this article is published). May seem odd, but if your game hasn’t broken into double-digit review numbers after six months, something’s wrong. Somewhere. Anyway, my pick(s) are as follows…
Temporal Storm X: Hyperspace Dream ($8.99)
The arcade-centric gameplay is strong with this one, much like its soundtrack. Kinda reminds me of a classic title that’s ever so slightly similar too, but I can not remember its name at the time of writing. Oh well!
Over My Dead Body (For You) ($9.99)
Two protagonists, one player: zombie and ghost. If that doesn’t immediately make you want this quirky puzzler, I don’t know what to tell ya. I mean, would it be such a bad thing if more games had zombies and ghosts? I’m as tired of zombie games as everyone else, but… both? BOTH!
Swim Out ($5.99)
Speaking of puzzle games… here’s one that requires serious thinking, or you’ll sink instead of swimming, courtesy of those pesky, well, other swimmers. Deceptively simple, no doubt, and isn’t that the best kind?
When It Hits the Fan ($9.99)
Seems this month enjoyed a fair amount of two things: puzzlers and arcade inspired titles, this being another case of the latter, groovy looking top-down shooting and all. Also, more zombies.
Legend of Hand ($6.99)
Don’t ya just love when point ‘n click gets mixed with martial arts? Well, it happens so very rarely anyway, so even if you don’t, I have a feeling this particular attempt at just that might still be favorable. Looks really good on top of that.
