Weeklong Deals for 10/1/18

Spooktober may have just taken off, but that doesn’t mean the Weeklong Deals are getting left out! It’s one of those weeks where there are a few gems offered and a lot of middle-of-the-road titles get sprinkled in around them, but there’s still something for just about any mood. Definitely have a look at the platformers and adventures that are up, as several of them are extremely solid.

I know we’ve got daily horror reviews to look forward to all this month, but don’t forget about the streams, either! Tonight we’ll be starting in on a full playthrough of The Evil Within 2, and on Wednesday we’ll be looking at a few more promising horror titles that’ll get reviews this month! Be here at 9pm PST and give us a follow while you’re at it!

SCARY GOOD

Omega Strike (Review) – Extremely simple metroidvania that still entertains with its combat and graphics

Reveal The Deep (Review) – Wonderfully atmospheric puzzle platformer about exploring a sunken ship alone

Millionaire Manor (Review) – Terribly thin hidden object game held up by its puzzle variety and insane premise

Bardbarian (Review) – Decent concept, but balanced too poorly to really enjoy

Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That! Special Edition Double Pack (Review) – Their hearts are in the right place, but the gameplay is just too much of a slog

Mover (Review) – Move a triangle around a maze. That’s it.

ENKI (Review) – A timed puzzle horror game is a neat idea, but the reality of it turns out to be super boring

Qubika (Review) – Hey look, it’s that two-state panel puzzle that’s in every other game ever
