    BugsBox VR may be an obscure game but it's definitely one worth playing, especially if you enjoy arcade-style experiences.

    If you're a JRPG fan who has never played Atelier Rorona or only played the original version then The Alchemist of Arland DX is definitely worth a purchase, especially if you enjoy lighthearted whimsical tales set in delightful worlds.

    Earth Defense Force 5 is an EDF game through and through. Although it doesn't feature anything particularly new and exciting, it still makes for an enjoyable and ridiculous time that's best played with friends.

    If you're looking for a relaxed yet challenging puzzler that you can enjoy in short bursts then CricktoGame is worth a purchase.

    Although it's been kicking around a while, Rock Boshers DX: Director's Cut is a great retro-inspired game that holds up impressively well.

    Not everyone will appreciate the crass world of Demetrios but those who enjoy point and click adventure games and ham-fisted humour will definitely like what this Big Cynical Adventure has to offer.

    If running, jumping, and farting around while a huge monster chases you sounds like fun then you'll likely enjoy this off-the-wall indie.

    I can't imagine anyone playing Storm Boy and getting more enjoyment from it than they can from reading the book or watching one of its theatrical adaptations. That being said, it's still a charming and delightful game, that's for sure.

    Fans of felines looking for a relaxing survival exploration game for their Switch will fall in love with Cattails. Its strange world has a certain charm that I've never experienced before and I'm sure you'll agree.

    Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection is merely an expanded version of Persona 4: Dancing All Night with no substantial changes or additional modes. It's still fun but there's no denying that Atlus could have provided many more reasons to hit the dance floor.

    Gundemoniums is a huge improvement over Platine Dispositif's classic shmup Gundemonium Recollection. That being said, I can't help but wish more content was included because at its core, it's still a very short-lived game.

    Arca's Path is a VR game that'll keep your heart in your throat as you attempt to master its super-challenging stages while trying not to fall into the abyss below. Its abstract and captivating world is just the icing on the cake.

    Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a phenomenal game and one of the best Metroidvanias ever made. The amount of challenging fun packed into its massive and enjoyable world makes every moment of gameplay an absolute joy.

    Resonance of Fate is one of the most unique JRPGs out there complete with an interesting story and a fun battle system that poses just the right level of challenge. I highly recommend it for any RPG fan who's looking for something different.

    If you're a fan of Spyro or 3D platformers in general then Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a must-play compilation. The amount of variety and charm contained within these 3 games is superb and each of them holds up beautifully today.

    Those who enjoy card games like Poker and Rummy will have a fun time with Just Deal With It! Overall, it's an enjoyable and lively compilation of card games but the restrictive options make it eventually feel a bit flat.

    The library of PlayLink games has been growing a great deal recently so thankfully, Wordhunters is a worthwhile multiplayer experience that's filled with silly word-based mini-game mayhem.

    If the concept of a competitive shoot 'em up appeals to you then Rival Megagun is definitely a solid choice. Although it could have been so much more, what's here is still a unique and enjoyable game. Here's hoping we see more shmups like it down the road.

    Competitive real-time strategy games don't get much better or more accessible than Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon. The delightful sights and sounds and satisfying gameplay make it a must-have RTS.

    It may not be the main event in your next local multiplayer gathering but Toast Time: Smash Up! is definitely worthy of at least being part of a rapid fire gaming playlist with pals.

    The premise of a beat 'em up with ninja cats is solid but Claws of Furry's messy gameplay simply doesn't allow its concept to shine.

    Many indie developers try to emulate classic games and few actually succeed at it. Coffee Crisis nails 16-bit brawlers perfectly and it's great fun with a friend. So, brew up a couple cups of joe and get ready to smash in some alien skulls.

    With so many better tennis and indie sports games on the market, it's hard to recommend Timber Tennis: Versus. The flat and overly simplistic gameplay just doesn't slice it. Tennis puns; gotta love 'em...

    When it comes to volleyball games, Super Volley Blast is definitely the best one that I ever played. Its basic yet satisfying gameplay, enjoyable presentation, and large assortment of content bump, set, and spike it for the win.

    Of all the Touhou games that I've played so far, Gensokyo Defenders remains one of the best due to its unique and addictive gameplay. It's definitely rough around the edges but there's still a ton of fun to be had waging war with these charming ladies.

    R-Type Dimensions has been around for almost a decade and this EX edition doesn't really add anything substantial to the compilation. That being said, these are still two of the best shoot 'em ups ever made.

    As a compilation of the arcade and Sega Saturn versions of a shoot 'em up from the mid-'90s, Game Tengoku CruisinMix holds up impressively well. Here's hoping we get to see a port of GunBare! Game Tengoku 2 soon.

    If Darksiders III spent a bit longer in development then it would have been almost on par with the previous games in the series. Its action is intense and the characters are phenomenal but the amount of glitches is definitely hard to ignore.

    Squishies is one of the most innovative and clever VR games that I've ever played. However, here's hoping that its developers iron out a lot of its shortcomings soon because as it is, it can wear out the patience of a saint.

    Turf Wars is a substantial step down from The Heist as its unvaried and brief campaign along with its stereotypical story make it an easily forgettable piece of content. That being said, there are some redeeming qualities but they are too few and far between.
