‘Resynth’ Review

Resynth By: Polyphonic LP Pty Ltd Over the last few years, I've become a big fan of Sokoban puzzles, such as Go to Gold and A Good Snowman is Hard to Build.

Go to Gold has a familiar feel to it if you've ever played Sokoban, or really any game that includes a puzzle that involves moving boxes around the screen. In that respect, it's not groundbreaking. But what it does, it does really well. Right off the bat, you might notice the gorgeous, polished 3D graphics. Read more [...]
