New Retro News: Horror in all shapes and sizes
It’s that time again, to fill in the gaps between words like the principles of common law and talk about game-related stuff that didn’t make it to the lofty halls of having its own post. This week:
- Ghosts and Demons: A step up from Ghouls or Goblins?
- Five Nights at Freddy’s World: Re-Released for better or worse!
- Stardew Valley: Move over Farm Simulator 2016!
Ghosts, Demons, Oh My!
As if the original wasn’t hard enough, someone has gone and made a pseudo-remake/remix even more challenging. Ghosts ‘n Demons takes the gameplay of the original with all new levels and challenges. You get some funky fresh new moves such as a backflip, but the difficulty is described as “punishing”, even more than Maldita Castilla, which is the main reason we haven’t even tried to review it.

Another Night in Freddy’s World
We mentioned how beleaguered horror-franchise-turned-colorful JRPG FNaF World’s developer pulled the plug a few weeks back, promising to re-release the game for free. The original release lacked a few tiny, niggling features like “being able to see what abilities do” or “being able to view any information about your characters”. Well, now it’s out. Again (but still “not very good” according to Kotaku).

Harvest to the Stars in Stardew Valley
Due for release in a couple weeks, Stawdew Valley takes the familiar drift (to those who owned a SNES) of “your grandpa/uncle/mysterious stranger left their dilapidated farm for you” and runs with it. Stardew Valley includes all the staples a fan of this genre would come to expect: planting, harvesting, mining, fishing, etc. Pretty sure there is a distinct lack of exploding Zombies, but.. can’t be sure.
