Batbarian: Primordials Testamente

Batbarian: Primordials Testamente is a title from Unspeakable Pixels that mixes both action and puzzle. Using your bat, you have to cross hundreds of spaces and face the various bosses that will rise in front of you. On your way you will meet various characters who can become your allies and help you find your way around your environment. Depending on the situation, the game adapts because your hero, who is a barbarian, can drop his best lines, both very serious and completely offbeat. The whole reflection part of the title is concentrated in the choice of the path, those that are inaccessible will ask you to find a mechanism to free the passage.

Forgotton Anne

Forgotton Anne is a 2D game that puts you in Anne, a guard of order in the Forgotton Realm. While a rebellion is brewing, our heroine must bring peace to this world, where forgotten things become Oblivions, beings who at all costs seek to find their owner despite the prohibitions. Anne must then make choices that can have serious consequences for this universe. To help her in her quest, she is equipped with a glove that, in addition to being able to distill Oblivion, is also capable of controlling Anima, a kind of electricity in the game universe. requires you to master the various mechanics to move forward and defeat the enemies on your way.


Inde is an adventure and exploration game from the Playdead studio, to which we already owe Limbo, another title with a rather similar concept. But Inside wants to be more intense, dark and macabre as the player embodies a little boy with a erased face who is being watched by men in black suits. Throughout the experience, the scenario remains discreet and subtle to allow everyone to have their own interpretation of events. Controller in hand, the game is linear and alternates between platform and puzzle phases with always the same gameplay, but sometimes new, more complex mechanics are added to spice up the game. The inside is minimalist to the end as it has no music, only sound effects to make the atmosphere heavier.

Magnetic: Cage closed

Magnetic: Cage closed is a first person puzzle game developed by Guru Games. The player embodies a character locked in a huge complex from which he will have to escape by being guided by a mysterious creature. As the name suggests, the gameplay is based on controlling magnetic waves using the Magnet Gun, which creates magnetic fields and attracts or moves objects away. The title is obviously inspired a lot by Portal and sometimes asks you to carry a dice to activate switches. Since each level is strewn with traps to be avoided, the game leaves very little respite, especially if we add its oppressive atmosphere.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a crossover between the universe of Tetris and Puyo Puyo, which allows you to play the gameplays specific to each of these two licenses in a single puzzle. If Tetris is the duo’s most famous title, you may not know Puyo Puyo. Don’t worry, the principle is very simple as you have to line up 4 blobs of the same color to make them disappear at once and thus earn points. The challenge is then to create chains that explode simultaneously to make the maximum number of combinations. If the main interest of the title is to be able to confront other people, the game is still accompanied by a rather easy and secondary scenario, which provides context to the experience. Thus, we discover the character of Ringo, a young girl fan of Puyo Puyo, who sees his daily life turned upside down by the arrival of Tetris players. Finally, there are several game modes available to spice up the games, especially by emphasizing speed.


IN Frost, you play as a young boy who has just been stranded on an unknown island and who has to explore the surroundings and solve various puzzles to understand where he is. Beyond its sumptuous landscapes, the game remains minimalist and relies on gameplay mechanics that use sound, light or time. The whole adventure takes place in Mediterranean environments accompanied by a very pleasant soundtrack, which makes the title as much an experience of reflection as of contemplation. If the narrative at first is quite easy, it becomes more dramatic but discreet, which will require some players to play the game several times to understand all the problems.

The last campfire

With The last campfire, from Hello Games, the studio behind No Man’s Sky, the player finds himself immersed in a magical world inhabited by strange and mysterious creatures. We check on Ember, a lost traveler who has to light the last of her campfire before returning home. During her adventure, she will have to explore the limbo, where she met lost souls. Once in contact with them, several puzzles appear which must be solved to help the spirits. If the riddle side does not please you, know that it is possible to skip these phases of reflection versus focusing solely on the story thanks to the state of exploration.
