Secrets of Rætikon
Recommended March 9, 2018

As far as exploration games go, Secrets of Rætikon does a pretty good job scratching that itch. The combat requires creative environmental exploits, and there are neat little puzzles hidden about.

$9.99
Shadowhand: RPG Card Game
Recommended March 16, 2018

When I had played enough of Shadowhand to feel comfortable writing about it I figured about two hours had passed. Turns out I’d put six hours into the game instead. That’s a good sign.

$14.99
Puyo Puyo™Tetris®
Recommended February 10, 2018

Puyo Puyo Tetris excels in almost all areas. Some of its game modes might've fallen a little flat (looking at you, Party), but the overall package exudes fun.

$19.99
The Little Ball That Could
Recommended April 27, 2018

The obstacles and design of the levels get much more complex as you play. With a total of five worlds, and considering how much fun we’ve had in only one, it's worth a trip.

$7.99
Swim Out
Recommended May 4, 2018

Swim Out truly captures that feeling of relaxing by the pool on summer vacation. I didn’t know I wanted that in a puzzler, but I’m glad I’ve got it now.

$5.99
Octogeddon
Recommended February 23, 2018

As a unique take on shoot-em-ups that introduces some fun mechanics, Octogeddon is easy to recommend, unless you’re someone suffering from molluscophobia.

$12.88
House Flipper
Recommended May 25, 2018

I had no clue I wanted House Flipper until I started playing it. Now I can’t imagine a world without House Flipper. Tranquil when I wanted, hilarious when I needed it, this is a true 2018 surprise.

$19.99
Steredenn
Recommended February 2, 2018

If we still lived in the age of the arcade, Steredenn‘s cabinet would turn a lot of heads.

$12.99
Gray Matter
Recommended February 16, 2018

Gray Matter is a fun game. It’s quirky and off-kilter, and the premise is definitely weird, but that’s what makes it memorable.

$9.99
Morphite
Recommended March 30, 2018

It’s hard to deny that Morphite is a fun game that honestly tries it’s hardest. This is a great little proof of concept that stands out from the crowd.

$14.99
Ruin of the Reckless
Recommended January 19, 2018

Ruin's melee combat really makes you feel powerful as you knock one slime into three more and send an entire room of enemies ricocheting around like billiard balls.

$9.99
Deep Sixed
Recommended May 25, 2018

Deep Sixed is a game where chaos is the norm. If you enjoy challenging titles that will test your patience, then this is the kind of game you would absolutely love.

$12.99
Tempest: Pirate Action RPG
Recommended March 23, 2018

Tempest is a fun and accessible RPG with the usual twist of magic and nautical legends that add to the fun.

$14.99
Freaky Awesome
Recommended January 12, 2018

Freaky Awesome‘s roguelite offering is stylish for sure, with a gameplay loop best described as Binding of Isaac by way of The Toxic Avenger.

$9.99
Stereo Aereo
Recommended January 19, 2018

It’s quite entertaining and I would actually recommend the game to rhythm game fans looking for something new and cheap to try.

$3.99
Bear With Me - Episode One
Recommended March 9, 2018

Bear With Me has an interesting plot with depth, charming characters, and an interesting visual art style. For adventure game fans looking for a different kind of mystery, it's easy to reccomend.

Free
Cubiques
Recommended April 13, 2018

Simple polygons and geometric shapes, a piano concerto on loop, and over 70 small puzzles to solve. Cubiques is a competent package for players to find some mild challenge with.

$3.99
Dig Dog
Recommended March 30, 2018

Dig Dog is easy to recommend to anyone looking for an unassuming retro-styled adventure. It isn’t as good as hanging out with a real dog, but it has an irresistible charm that brings it pretty close.

$2.00
Alchemic Jousts
Not Recommended April 7, 2018

There’s a lot of fun to be had discovering Alchemic Jousts' elemental combinations. Unfortunately, that fun doesn’t always translate to the battlefield.

$14.99
PC Building Simulator
Recommended April 13, 2018

If you’re interested in tinkering with computers without risking thousands in real-world parts, you should consider giving PC Building Simulator a whirl.

$19.99
Nonogram - The Greatest Painter
Recommended May 18, 2018

Above all else, Nonogram is easily digestible, offers a lot of replay value, and is a joy to behold. With jazzy tunes playing throughout your puzzle solving adventure, there’s a lot to enjoy here.

$2.99
Cradle
Recommended April 7, 2018

Cradle made me more interested in Mongolia while also providing some fun adventure gameplay and an interesting story.

$12.99
Grimante
Informational March 2, 2018

Grimante is marred by some amateur mistakes that make it less appealing than it should be. Even so, if you like tactical combat and puzzle games, it might be worth giving this genre hybrid a shot.

$4.99
High Hell
Recommended February 9, 2018

High Hell is small in scope, but delivers what it promises. For a certain type of completionist, the speedrun challenge of blasting every foe in seconds will prove to be a delight.

$9.99
Fake Colours
Recommended April 27, 2018

Fake Colours seems to be a puzzle game for genuine puzzle enthusiasts. You should check this game out if you have the spatial reasoning to solve a Rubik’s Cube in a couple of minutes.

$2.99
Subsurface Circular
Recommended February 9, 2018

If you’re looking for a short sci-fi story that leans into text adventure gameplay, Subsurface Circular is your perfect match.

$5.99
Roguemance
Recommended April 20, 2018

Roguemance looks rather generic in the sea of pixelated indie games, but its beating heart, in the end, is a clever, well-made roguelike that is able to stand upon its own shoulders

$6.99
Abandon Ship
Recommended March 23, 2018

If you’re up for micromanaging a crew and getting through tough scenarios by the skin of your teeth, Abandon Ship may be up your galley.

$19.99
STATUS: INSANE
Recommended February 2, 2018

STATUS: INSANE a bit clunky around the edges, but it's also a fun puzzle game that occasionally wanders into brilliant territory

$4.99
ShellShock Live
Recommended January 26, 2018

Shellshock has countless weapons to unlock, randomized stages, and a suite of game modes to break up the monotony. Add a bright coating of neon graphics on top and you’ve got a recipe for a good time.

$6.99
FOX n FORESTS
Recommended May 18, 2018

Fox n Forests is 16-bit, retro sidescrolling goodness. The nostalgic vibes are in the 2D sprite characters, the animations, and the music. It’s a spot-on achievement on Bonus Level’s part.

$9.99
Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora
Recommended February 16, 2018

Hot Tin Roof: The Cat that Wore a Fedora's clever comedic writing fits well with the tone, and the world easily drew me in.

$14.99
Containment
Recommended May 11, 2018

Containment is a balancing act. You want to eliminate the bacteria, but you want to keep the game going as long as you can. This is a fun and addictive puzzle game that’s also aesthetically pleasing.

$1.99
Trailblazers
Recommended May 11, 2018

Trailblazers is pretty fun if you know what you’re getting into. This isn’t a precision racer, but the painting mechanics and focus on teamwork make it stand out from the crowd.

$29.99
