Eternium

The hack'n'slash style is arguably one of the most satisfying in the gaming industry. Massacre dozens of enemies with a vengeance or with a lot of incantations has something paradoxically soothing.

Limbo

A gloomy environment, a little boy forced to flee from danger constantly, mechanisms to activate and a breathtaking artistic direction… Limbo is a brilliant game that you should not miss if you are looking for a title that combines action, skill and puzzles. We particularly salute the well-groomed handling despite the limitations of touch screens on this kind of gameplay. The end of the game, for its part, raises many questions as it is so mysterious. For that alone, it is worth the detour.
