There are many games out there today. Some are good ranging from good to near perfect while others aren’t that great. Some are not good and hardly anyone knows they exist. There are however some games that are very good and even fantastic but got very little attention, not what they deserve. This is sad especially when you can clearly see all the hard work that goes into that game but see that not much gamers care. Well here is just some from us that ARE very good and deserve way more attention. Let’s take a look.
Now these games that we are going to talk about are all games X35 Earthwalker has played himself. So there’s loads of experience here. Each game we have had lots of fun with and we can confirm that there are very good. None of these are a waste of time. Each game is very different from the other and they are good for what they are. Matter of fact we have already written about the majority of these games on our website. So make sure to read them afterwards. Just wished people like gameplay content creators payed attention to other games like X35 Earthwalker instead of jumping on what’s new & hot or trending for those views. Lame.
First game is Celeste. This game is excellent… and very difficult. The story is simple on the surface and gets a little deep. You control a girl who made it her goal to climb this specific mountain, Celeste. She is very skilled and brave but has some serious struggles that can even get her killed. We won’t say more. It’s the hardest game of all the ones we are going to talk about. Celeste is all about serious platforming. The game seems very reasonable at the start but new mechanics get introduced and they really shake things up. The difficulty turns up real fast too. We are honest here at X35 Earthwalker so we won’t hide that you will have a tough time. Don’t worry about dying though as we all do in Celeste. Matter of fact some people have shared online that they died more than 3000 times trying to beat the game. Then there’s extra modes and levels which are even harder. A youtuber finally beat the insane challenge that was the c side levels which only the greatest players like X35 Earthwalker could beat. He had over 7000 deaths while X35 Earthwalker, off course being a superior gamer, only had 2764 deaths. From the characters, the story, the challenges and a number of hidden things, you get a real adventure out of this cutesy game. We even like the variety of areas in the game. You should definitely try this game and just don’t rage quit.
Next is Indivisible. This game is awesome for sure. A true definition of the word adventure. You follow Ajna who sets out to get revenge on the man who ordered the attack on her village, her people which lead to her father dying in combat. The adventure gets bigger from there though but we won’t say more. There’s loads of platforming and like Metroid there are many places you can’t access until you go somewhere else to find a power up or a new ability. You get a very cool map which is nicely detailed. You explore very different lands with different people of different culture too, meeting all kinds of characters and that’s one of our favourite things about Indivisible. The characters. There’s many of them allowing for huge options when it comes to compiling your team for combat. They have their own abilities. personality, story and powers. Our favourite parts his the characters interacting with each other, how they clash, joke and disagree. The scene where Thorani, Zebei, Baozhai, Dhar and Ajna tried the strong alcohol during their escape from the slime at the iron kingdom. That made us laugh and smile so hard. It was the best scene in the whole game. The combat is very unique. your team faces the other team like a turn based combat but except anyone can move at anytime but one at a time. It depends on who inputs their action first. Abilities recharge and you need to use the correct assigned button to a character for them to block an incoming attack. It’s complicated and messes with your brain at first but then you get use to it. Still angry at Ajna for what she did to Dhar but we won’t talk about it. The graphics and level designs with the environments are top level. You got to try this game. One of the best games of 2020 for sure.
Tetris Effect: Connected is an Xbox exclusive and also got unsurprisingly little attention. Why? Simple. It’s Tetris. Very few people care about Tetris. We don’t dare about Tetris either but Tetris Effect: Connected is awesome and way better than any Tetris game before it. This game is beautiful. Visually impressive with awesome particle effects. Each stage has it’s own theme, sound effects for moving the tetriminos (blocks) and some stages have music. This game is no joke though as it is difficult. Very difficult. Playing the campaign (journey mode) you face multiple series of levels with increasing difficulty overall. Some stages have parts where the blocks (tetriminos) come down at such fast speeds that will destroy you if you aren’t ready for it or can’t think that fast. There’s multiplayer where you can work with players against actual bosses. Competitive modes and even special modes with objectives to shake things up or challenge the player or just chill. The main thing about Tetris Effect: Connected is that it’s more relaxing than anything else unless you want the challenge. We have a whole review on this game so check that out to learn more. Sucks that others ignore it because it’s tetris. Don’t be one of those people it’s free to download and play on the Xbox game pass.
Next is Coffee Talk. This game is the most simple of what we are listing here. You are a barista who runs a coffee shop called ‘Coffee Talk’. People come in and talk with you and you just serve them the drinks they want. It’s that simple. We hear you right now, “X35 Earthwalker this game sounds boring.” It isn’t though. It’s all about the characters. They have their own stories and problems going on. You hear them out or listen to them talk to others. It reminds you of real life easily. There problems are real even though they are creatures like werewolves, elves, succubus, orcs, vampires etc. It’s fictional creatures with non-fictional problems and stories. A character is taking a huge gamble with her career to fulfil a dream which could cost her everything. Another character Bailey (the man himself) wants to continue his relationship with a woman he loves but they are completely different races like elf and succubus. One being more holy creatures while the other are demons. Another is family problems etc. it also feels more relatable that this game came out in 2020 and is set in 2020 from September. X35 Earthwalker played it in September too. There was even a news article that was about a virus. How relatable. This game comes from paying attention and enjoying the stories and off course getting creative with the drinks like doing latte art and even combining certain ingredients together to discover completely different drinks and recipes. This game sounds lame to many but it’s actually very good. We actually cared about the characters and wanted things to work out for them. Give this game a try. We have videos on this game too.
Next is Earth Defence Force 2025. This game is truly special. We never heard of this game series before as there are a lot of Earth Defence Force games. You are part of the EDF… Earth Defence Force… duh, pay attention, that was obvious. Giant insects are here and boy are they a problem. This is the first time in a game where the enemies felt like they are actually taking over the earth as an unstoppable force. The giant ants rush you, throw acid and attack in swarms. This game keep every toned down though as you may face 100 ants in a level but in reality there are millions of ants. Off course this game wouldn’t be able to manage millions of ants. It’s not just ants but orb web spiders, jumping spiders, red ants (stronger ants) and even hornets! 4 different character classes: Ranger, wing diver, Fencer and Air Raider. Each have their own clear strengths and weaknesses but it’s clear what class is overall better than what. Balancing isn’t the best here. This game is pure action adrenaline. It’s pure fighting, blasting bugs, saving tea mates and getting eaten alive. Bug holes come up from the ground and many insects come through to attack. You can even get huge explosive weapons and completely destroy the environment and buildings… with the greatest of ease. At times this game can get scary when you are rushed down and cornered. You can even play this with others too. X35 Earthwalker and Diamondz L45 have good memories of facing hordes of bugs all trying to eat and destroy them. It’s just straight up mad action. Huge grenade launchers, powerful over the top snipers and dual wielding giant chain machine guns (for the Fencer class though) but nothing is over the top when dealing with GIANT INSECTS! Probably the most fun game on this list. Lastly this game is very big. We still haven’t finished the campaign. So many other games we are playing too and it’s really long. At least you can’t say you didn’t get your monies worth.
Streets of Rage 4. The greatest beat up game of all time right now. This game is explosive and does what the previous game does and better for the most part. This game has good bosses, cutscenes, new enemies to the series, awesome special attacks, combo potential, largest campaign yet and best of all full 4 player multiplayer. The multiplayer is online as well. The graphics are excellent, the campaign is action packed, the difficulty settings are fair (except for Mania mode) and the music is top notch. The music for this game might just be the best in gaming for the type of music it is. Like seriously, listen to the music in stage 2, the precinct. Tell us you aren’t dancing. Exactly. Story wise it’s the same arcade style and simple problem like the previous Streets of Rage. Mr X isn’t around anymore but his children… the Y twins are in charge now and they are ruling the streets. It’s up to the squad to take them down. Simple story right. Well that’s how Streets of Rage has always been. nothing deep but the meat was the combat and levels. This game is tons of fun and Mania mode is described correctly that it is not even remotely fair. It isn’t. You will lose. This game was nominated for a game reward but due to the rewards being overall rigged, Streets of Rage 4 didn’t get the respect it deserved.
Outland is the biggest crime of them all though. It’s the oldest of the games on this list and we feel this game has been ignored the most. This game is fantastic. The amount of work that went into it was real. We always used this game as an example when it comes to character animations. Outland is the pinnacle of gaming animations for a character. Just watch how the character runs, jumps, turns, sprints, attacks and more. Look at the movement of the enemies too. The only game that we put in the same lease as Outland when it comes to animation is Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Out land is about a guy who has dreams that trouble him. He heads of to a jungle place where he mets a shaman (we think) who tells him stories and some answers. Basically he is destined to do what the man 2000 years ago did (something like 2000). Wielding the power of light and darkness. Neither is evil but both serve a good purpose. This concept of light and darkness leads to tricky and complex gameplay, fighting and platforming. This game is unique. The concept, the combat, the voice acting, the graphics, the back ground and environments are all top level. Facing the bosses is the best though as you face large powerful beings welding real power in their own ways. On top of that you have some seriously epic boss music with a cool style, not straight up heavy beats for dancing. Outland is amazing and we still jump back into it to see what’s happening. This is a fantastic game.
So there you go. That’s 7 games that are seriously ignored and not getting the attention they deserve. They are fantastic games. All have been good fun and we jump back in to play when we feel like it, even with all these new games out and stuff. So most of these games are either really cheap or available for free on Xbox Game Pass so feel free to try these games out. Games like Tetris Effect: Connected and Coffee Talk aren’t for every gamer but we do believe you will have a good time with all of these games.
As a bonus probably the most ignored game right now is Maze Time. This 2D action Maze game was developed by X35 Earthwalker himself. There’s over 20 levels, 10 different types of enemies, some traps and bonus levels. It’s an old school action game classic style. Pixel graphics and simple controls with simple instructions. Get all the gems to open the door to the exit, then head through the exit to get to the next level. It’s very challenging and has some secrets too like hidden special levels. It’s only like £2, $2. It’s available on both PC and Android devices. You can get it from this website or the google play store. This game is a lot of fun but very challenging.
