Game Review


Darkade is a horror game that has you exploring an old Breakout arcade cabinet and reaching way beyond what you could ever imagine.

It’s a surreal and atmospheric experience as you explore what goes on within a simple arcade game. You’ll encounter some dark and nasty secrets about the game exploration and puzzle-solving. It’s a very weird and surreal experience and one of those horror games that branches off from the mainstream types of games.

I can’t say much about Darkade because it’ll spoil the game. If you like some weird horror with an immersive experience that makes you feel on-edge, play it. It’s free to play using the link below. Try it out for yourself. It’s a real work of art in 8-bit horror.

  • Surreal horror
  • Weird and interesting
  • New take on the horror genre
  • Traditional horror fans probably won’t appreciate it

I play the newest to the crappiest indie games and filter them for the rest of the crew.

In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?

Indie devs: the last honest game creators.
