  • Adapt or Die

    1
    It’s not bad. It’s not great, but it’s well-designed, semi-fun, and definitely worth five points. I’m talking about today’s Kongregate game: Adapt or Die . Adapt or Die is a capture-the-tile battle game. The wasp-like ships... More

  • Hawk reviews: MegaMan Legends (PS1)

    5
    MegaMan Legends is an interesting case. Despite being released over a decade ago on the PS1, it still holds up pretty well.

    Every once in a while a game comes along that is so addictive, I don't want to stop playing long enough to write about it. CycloManiacs is just such a game. It's a fantastic blend of challenge, reward, and achievements to keep you coming back... More
