Welcome to a new edition of Five Dollar Dives! Today I am going to be looking at the indie horror game There’s a Butcher Around.
If you have played a horror game then you might know what to expect, but for the most part, I can say what you have in mind is not what this game is. While it does feature an interesting premise there are some things about it that cause the game to fall short. Continue reading “There’s a Butcher Around Review”

Welcome to a new edition of Five Dollar Dives! Today I am going to be looking at the indie platformer Super Phantom Cat.
I would be lying if I said this games graphical style is not what caught my eye. It also has cats, so naturally the moment my fiancee Sara saw it she insisted that I review this game.

Welcome to a special edition of Five Dollar Dives! This week I am taking a look at One Finger Death Punch 2.
Note: Although One Finger Death Punch 2 costs more than $5, I am making an exception for this game as I already reviewed the original game. It’s also priced at a very affordable $5.99, and I definitely think the extra money is worth it in this case. Now, let’s get on with the review!

Welcome to this edition of Five Dollar Dives, where I will be reviewing the game Running Ninja.
This game had me a little surprised. While I did get some of what I expected, a few of the game’s mechanics did have me raising an eyebrow. Not in a bad way though, as I was left thinking, “Well that’s interesting.” There is definitely some missed potential. However, considering the price that I paid for it, I was not expecting anything ground breaking.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Five Dollar Dives, where I will be reviewing the game The Devil’s Calculator.
If you love math, then The Devil’s Calculator is for you. If math is not your thing, then this game is likely going to be a pass for you. I wanted to give this game a try as most educational games tend to fall flat. I was hoping that this game would ignite my personal interest in mathematics, but I think a passionate teacher would be able to do that much more effectively.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Five Dollar Dives, where I will be reviewing the game AWAKE.
What first caught my attention with this game was the style of graphics, although the tagline on the store page also piqued my interest: “It was supposed to be a romantic trip… but turned into a brutal murder scene.” From this description, I was not expecting a point and click game. I am hesitant to call it an adventure game as you do not get much time to do things.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Five Dollar Dives where I will be looking at Hyper Scuffle, an arena fighter that is very similar to Super Smash Bros. In essence, you battle against three other players to see who will come out victorious. However, instead of attempting to ring out your opponent, you battle until someone hits 0 Hp.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a solid entry into the Ace Combat series. There are elements that have been added to the game that I enjoy, but there are also things about the story that have me asking many questions as well.
