Drifting Lands PC Review

Posted on by
Having fond memories of things in the style of R-Type, Raiden arcade game I was expecting something of that sort, short burn lives, lots of projectiles to avoid and plenty of big scary bad guys.

Posted on by
‘Not another Pixel Dungeon Crawler’ Uniqueness shines bright in NIS’ latest title, Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku!, through its intriguing dungeon crawling gameplay, gorgeous pixel art and glowing personality.
