The Artful Escape Review — The Gamer's Lounge

Paul from The Gamers Lounge writes "Unlike most kids I wouldn’t say I grew up on Guitar Hero. Of course, I was aware it existed and played it at friend’s houses but I never had it myself - Rock Band either. I was more interested in DJ Hero which ironically most people didn’t like. Rhythm games became more associated with phones as time went on and “walking simulators” are a genre game that’s very accessible but not always the most stimulating. The Artful Escape combines both with a heavy focus on the former."

I loved most of these but I have to say The Artful Escape is one of the most dissapointing games I've played in years. The whole thing is so Inconsequential and the try hard randomness they pin the humour to is infuriating. It started with a lot of promise but grated my nerves shortly after and continued to do so throughout

I'm not really sure I would've considered My Friend Pedro a platformer but it was a solid title that I played on Switch a couple years ago. Fun, 2-3 hours long, simple and bombastic.

Hollow Knight I wouldn't either - my personal favorite game on the list but that's a Metroidvania through and through, which the author acknowledges but still included. It's a sin that the first Ori is not included in the list.

Regardless of my gatekeeping over "platformer", can this site be frequented more often here? They give us lists with a table of contents showing each item AND they're all loaded on one full web page. Thank yooou

The Artful Escape was great! I checked it out on Gamepass and loved every minute! That was trippy as hell and a totally unexpected thrill ride. I highly recommend that one!

One of favourites last year was "lost in random"

Totally went unnoticed yet a gem of a game.
Tim Burton style visuals, fantastic characters, interesting story, fantastic game play mechanics with real time and turn based dice mechanics also quite a challenge with some bosses.

That's one that really comes to mind to me. Absolutely fantastic game, and barely a peep from anywhere on the game.

I've been meaning to try that one out too.

I did play the Artful Escape though. But I agree, the rest of those titles were never even on my radar.
