Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire
Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire is a gorgeous game with great character designs and dialogue. Unfortunately, as you can’t judge a book by its cover, you also cannot judge a game by its graphics. Fallen Legion falls victim to shoddy controls, an awkward battle system, and unpredictable difficulty spikes. While the game looks great, the gameplay itself is equally as bad and earns this game the dubious (dis)honor of being one of our worst of the month.
Aporia: Beyond the Valley
Aporia: Beyond the Valley is a modern take on the classic Myst games. That is to say that the game is a first-person title with a focus on exploration, atmosphere, and puzzle solving. Taking place within a beautiful world with a strong atmosphere and immersive animations and controls, Aporia seems like a title destined to do well. Unfortunately, the puzzles in the game are very simple, and the mystery in the game was more aesthetics than anything. Overall, the game looks great, but weak puzzles and a lack of much else to see make it a disappointment.
Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game
A puzzle game, Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game has the unfortunate distinction of being our lowest rated game of July 2017. While the game features a humorous game show style and catchy music, that is as far as the positive comments go. The difficult controls and a lack of physics that would support the gameplay makes the game often annoying. It also does not help that the game could use a much needed graphical update as well.
