NeverAwake (Nightmare Coma Bullet Hell Shmup)

NeverAwake (Nightmare Coma Bullet Hell Shmup)

  Wow what a literal and figurative nightmare of hellish bullets! Been awhile since I reviewed any games in the shmup category, but this has been the only one to catch my attention. Most shooters are reworked versions of everything that’s come before. Rarely have they been inventive. Occasional goodies have appeared over the years, […]

Mothmen 1966 (Retro PC Pulp Cryptid Horror)

Mothmen 1966 (Retro PC Pulp Cryptid Horror)

  Yo I dig this. My first experience with computer games, other than a brief sampling on a friend’s Commodore 64, was the Apple IIe. Now, granted, I only played Lemonade Stand at the time, but always dug that green/black color scheme, the boxy look, and the booping speaker from inside the harddrive, not to […]

Cartel Tycoon (1980s Narcotics Business Sim)

  Lol what a perfect idea for a game. I love playing sims, mostly those of the deep dive type made famous by Side Meier. Civilization, duh. In his incredible programming career, dude also started the tycoon craze, whereby the player runs some sort of business. He was not the first to conceive of this […]

Martha is Dead (Folkloric Stolen Identity Psychological Horror Game)

  Here again I feel like I have to pull out the “you just don’t get it” mantra due to negative reviews I skimmed concerning this latest psychological horror, ahem, masterpiece. Ugh, it’s the same old, tiresome complaints, too. The gameplay is tedious, the shock horror was unnecessary, the story was too long, blah blah […]

Rainbow Six Extraction (Strategy FPS and Aliens Too)

Rainbow Six Extraction (Strategy FPS and Aliens Too)

  Rainbow Six Siege burst on the scene nearly seven years ago and quickly became a riveting success. Launching in the shadow of big-budgeted, action-packed, run-and-guns, it had a slow, methodical, style that appealed to a large group that wanted a “thinking man’s” FPS, if you will. Now in 2022 after numerous updates, we get […]

Chasing Static (Another Retro Horror Romp with Unlocks)

  Survival horror yay! Not always yay, actually, often smellay. This one isn’t at that level, though, so don’t worry, I just felt like a rhyme. For anyone new, let me give my usual explanation of what makes this game type work. It’s like playing through a finely crafted novel; it needs one, a good […]

World of Horror (Horror Manga Point-and-Click Game)

  Just wow. Reviewing video games is much more difficult than the usual music crud on this site. They’re not as easy for fans to access, they can require more money (if we’re talking about digital anyway), and they take longer to assess. But recently we fools at Deaf Sparrow have been restructuring the review […]

Murder House (Retro Survival Horror)

Murder House (Retro Survival Horror)

  Harkening back to the days of the original Sony PlayStation (PS1), Murder House lets you relive the glory days of survival horror titles like Clock Tower with its polygonal graphics, cheesy dialogue, and tank style controls. Where it surpasses its predecessors is in the sheer amount of violence/gore and its attention to detail within […]

Back 4 Blood (Multiplayer Zombie Slay Game with Cards for Some Reason)

Back 4 Blood (Multiplayer Zombie Slay Game with Cards for Some Reason)

  It’s been over ten years since Left 4 Dead (L4D) invaded our homes with multiplayer, team-oriented zombie mayhem. Quite the successful IP, the franchise only had two games before seemingly disappearing forever. Well, if you were a fan, here’s a surprise. While this game technically isn’t Left 4 Dead 3, in spirit it totally […]

Ender Lilies (Tender Spirit Summoning Metroidvania Game)

Ender Lilies (Tender Spirit Summoning Metroidvania Game)

  Beautiful, just beautiful. I’ve been picking at Ender Lilies for some time now, as I like to get the full feel of this type of game. You never know, they can start out strong, and finish as absolute trash due to weak mechanics and repetitive themes. But I doubted that from the beginning, and […]
