One Finger Death Punch Two Review

A man sits as the title appears abover him. One Finger Death Punch 2

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!

Running Ninja Review

The Ninja jumps from platform to platform trying to climb through the room

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.

The Devil’s Calculator Review

Welcome to this week’s edition of Five Dollar Dives, where I will be reviewing the game The Devil’s Calculator.

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.

AWAKE – Definitive Edition Review

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.

Astronaut: The Moon Eclipse Review — Pretty but lackluster space exploration

Astronaut: The Moon Eclipse is not a bad game, however, I found it to be uninteresting. The premise of the game is that a bunch of asteroids are heading towards Earth and it’s up to you to destroy them before they decimate the Earth. You get into your spaceship and head into a stationary position above Earth poised to leap into action.

Five Dollar Dives: An Introduction

Welcome to Five Dollar Dives. This is a first impressions series looking at games that are less than $5, primarily on Steam. The purpose is to see if there are any hidden gems that you may want to check out. Many times have I looked at a game and wondered if the $3 was really worth it, or if I’d just end up having yet another game in my Steam list that I’d never look at again. If you’re like me, then this series is for you!
