This week’s featured game is indie smash-hit Slay the Spire. It’s an easy to play, tough to master deck-battler game in which you try to fight your way to the top of the mysterious spire via bouts of addictive, strategic combat. There’s also a less positive review of the conceptually interesting, visually spectacular and deeply flawed Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
