Into The Breach – Nintendo Switch | Review

Into The Breach – Nintendo Switch | Review

Subset Games, developer of 2012’s indie darling “FTL” return with “Into The Breach”, a whole six years after.

The Forest – PS4 | Review

The Forest – PS4 | Review

I don’t really like the dark in video games, especially when the only thing stopping cannibals and mutants eating you alive is the smallest most inefficient axe you have ever seen. We seem to have quite the obsession over the last few years with survival and crafting games and this…read more >
Deracine – PSVR | Review

Deracine – PSVR | Review

Timber Tennis Versus – PS4 | Quickfire Review

Timber Tennis Versus – PS4 | Quickfire Review

Timber Tennis Versus is a delightfully simple tennis game with a kooky presentation and colourful visual style. Whilst it’s no Virtua Tennis, it never claims to be. In fact, the game seems to land somewhere between NES Tennis and Sega Superstars Tennis. With accessible, albeit basic gameplay similar to those…read more >
Moonlighter – Nintendo Switch | Review

Moonlighter – Nintendo Switch | Review

Moonlighter is more than just another RPG with pixelated graphics. It’s a top down isometric adventure with an enjoyable narrative paired with a driving and addictive plot point. This charming action game borrows elements from other highly enjoyable titles such as Stardew Valley, Zelda and at times even the elusive…read more >

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a shapeshifter? When I was a young lad, one of my favourite shows was the 90's X-Men cartoon. What wasn't there to love?! When asked who my favourite mutant is in the entire series, my answer has always been…read more >

The Granddaddy of all puzzle games has just been pulled into the 21'st century. Over the years there have been a few attempts to reinvent the Tetris formula with Puyo Puyo Tetris being the latest, and while sometimes it works, more often than not it's the base Tetris experience that…read more >
Steel Rats – PS4 | Review

Steel Rats – PS4 | Review

I will openly admit I had never heard of Steel Rats before I was asked to review it. I had seen a couple of mentions of it on my Twitter timeline but knew very little of the title before playing it. So this is a completely blind review with no…read more >
Shadow Of The Loot Box – PS4 | Review

Shadow Of The Loot Box – PS4 | Review

Ratalaika Games strikes again with another title that seems to be aimed at the rabid trophy hunters out there. Shadow Of The Loot Box is a shooter in the style of classics like Doom with a dose of Minecraft style visuals. The game itself seems to be a satire of…read more >

Super Pixel Racers – Xbox One | Review

Super Pixel Racers – Xbox One | Review

There is no school like the old school... I could not think of anything more cliche than that for my opening line to this review. Super Pixel Racers is a retro-styled top-down isometric racer that will remind people of a certain age of an old Amiga classic called Skid Marks…read more >
