Rushing Ninjas Review

A neat and cleanly built running game that transforms the endless side-scrolling runner into an infinitely long-lived but stationary obstacle course.

The Secret of Chateau de Moreau Review

Start with an Agatha Christie novel, stir in some delicious anime art, sprinkle in tons of clever brain-stumping puzzles, and you get Four Thirty Three's "The Secret of Chateau de Moreau." While not without some translation flaws, it's a truly gripping marriage of videogame and narrative. Here's to hoping there's more where this came from!...
