Capsule Review: Hell Girls

A match-3 game with a lightweight RPG framework. Combat is accomplished through match-3 gameplay, and in betwen battles you spend money and experience to improve your stats and occasionally get new abilities. You play as one of three elemental maidens who have different stat allocations and slightly different special moves, fighting a series of monsters who attack in varying ways - one enemy puts bombs on the board that deal heavy damage if not destroyed before their countdown runs out, while another poisons several tiles that each deal light damage every turn they are not cleared.

Capsule Review: ABZÛ

An exploration game roughly in the vein of Flower or Journey. Play as a diver swimming through underwater caverns and submerged ruins. There’s no dialog and gameplay consists mostly of navigating a beautiful environment against an emotive soundtrack. The star of the show is the sea life - hundreds of real-world species of fish, turtles, whales, and more lovingly rendered with up to several thousand individual creatures on screen at any given time.

A 2D platformer that evolves the textile-based art style from Kirby’s Epic Yarn and matches it with Yoshi’s Island gameplay. Play as a woven Yoshi and make your way through levels, eating enemies and parts of the scenery and turning them not into eggs but balls of yarn which you can then throw as weapons or use to activate various other parts of the scenery.

Capsule Review: Confess My Love

A short adventure game where you play as male student Willie who plans to confess his love to female classmate Liza. You can technically accomplish this in a matter of seconds, but there are twenty different endings based on exactly what you do and when you do it and all of them must be witnessed before the game is truly complete - and the more endings you see, the more clues you find that things are not as they seem.

A rhythm RPG. Combat is accomplished by playing through a song - your four party members each get a lane of scrolling button prompts similar to games like Dance Dance Revolution or Guitar Hero. You can switch from character to character and getting a streak of correctly-timed hits for a given character will activate one of their abilities.
