Another new release, Celeste is currently our favourite game of 2018. It’s an ultra-hard precision platformer in the vein of Super Meat Boy, but with a completely different attitude. Where other games take pride in being unbeatable, Celeste goes out of its way to reassure you – you can beat this. You can climb the titular Celeste Mountain. It even provides you with optional help, like an extra jump, and doesn’t punish you for using them. Don’t get me wrong though: Celeste is still challenging, especially once you go after the optional collectibles (strawberries) or get into the B- and C-side levels – more difficult versions of the main stages. You can do it, but it’s going to take a lot of perseverance, and that’s fine.
