Having a hard time balancing its escape raft

Jett Tailfin review

Don't take the bait

Jett Tailfin has an interesting premise, being that it's a racing game with an aquatic setting. Operating on the premise alone, the game has a lot of potential. Before playing and just looking at a few screenshots, I pictured the game being a mix of a lesser-quality Mario Kart mixed with Finding Nemo's or... read more

SteamWorld Dig review

We've struck gold

It's funny how a premise that sounds so monotonous and boring can turn out to be such an entertaining experience. Constantly mining for hours upon hours doesn't really scream "exciting", and nobody would really expect this type of game to take off.
