I thought 6180 the moon was quite fun.

I really like this new format, Sam, thanks for putting it together.

I bought Sigi but am waiting for Shovel Knight & A Hat to come down a bit more before making a purchase.
Play nice!

Note that if you suffer from motion sickness, then Refunct is not for you.

I like the new format too!
Spencer is absolutely shocking.

Recently finished Hue and I quite enjoyed that, fun concept. Refunct was quite fun though, but quite short. There was a spiritual successor recently that was quite fun too.
I’m already a big fan of Guacamelee 2 though and heartily recommend it to everyone.

The "Worth Playing" segment is missing Super Cloudbuilt, which is the best platformer available on Xbox one, while also being the most frustration-free yet incredibly challenging and breathtakingly beautiful one. People seriously SERIOUSLY need to stop sleeping on that game.

I'm currently eyeing Amazing Princess Sarah and Ginger. Both look like enjoyable, straight-forward completions.

Also Poi and Omega Strike are great games that should be honorable mentions. Outside of Poi's NG+ achievement (Which is tricky but douable) they're relaxing and easy completions.

Hue was cool at first but wore off its welcome halfway through, like most puzzlers imo.

Ginger is a good game. Some levels did give me motion sickness, and I don't normally experience motion sickness. I just had to play it in smaller chunks but it was worth playing.

Oh no, it's difficult as hell, but it's not frustrating like most difficult games are to me. I found it interestingly relaxing. This game gave me the biggest sense of accomplishment when completing a difficult level, that no other game has since I completed the harder challenges on TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, or getting everything completed 100% on Perfect Dark (N64). Granted those are just my personal milestones and some may not find them all that impressive, but the point is they are impressive to me and until SC no game has made me feel that good for completing a difficult challenge.

The only reason I don't have more achievements is I've simply got too much to play and will definitely return to SC when I feel the time is right, but I finished all the story missions including the (I believe) 5 additional super hard levels, "fog core levels" I believe they are called.

It's a fast paced game too, it certainly put my reflexes to the test. To help, you get "assists" to use, I can't recall exactly what they are called but they're powerups, to give you things like extra checkpoints or slow motion which both help extraordinarily, especially in those 5 extra levels. There are other interesting mechanics to master in the game as well, like using the explosion from your guns ammo to help boost you extreme distances. It's unnecessary to get through levels but imperative if you want to be competetive on the time trials.
If you have to ask, you're streets behind.
