  • Review Gleamlight - An Appalling Bad Hollow Knight Clone

    Twilight's Last Gleaming

    Contrary to how it may seem, it's not very fun reviewing bad games. Sure, there's a degree of enjoyment in being mean, but the shocking secret of criticising games that aren't enjoyable? We still have to play them. Picking up the Switch and knowing we had to play more Gleamlight made the system feel ten times heavier...

About The Game
