Godstrike is an intense boss-rush game by OverPowered Team that will give any bullet rush fan a run for their money. The steep learning curve, paired with the various upgrades and abilities, can allure some players, but may have pushed a bit too hard for me to fully enjoy this adventure.
In Godstrike, you’re in control of Herald Yissia, the fast moving protagonist, where the goal is to defeat various creatures and beings through multi-phased boss battles. After defeating each boss, you gain more abilities and powers to customize how to progress and plan to defeat the other bosses.

Full Steam Ahead
The SteamWorld series has never been one for complacency. What once started as a tower defense franchise, transformed into a procedurally generated platformer, metamorphosed again into an XCOM-lite adventure, and changed once more into a Metroidvania adventure. This time, SteamWorld Quest wonderfully reinvents the franchise into a turn-based roleplaying card game that’s as fun as it is endearing. Continue reading SteamWorld Quest Review
One More (Gut Wrenching) Run
