Crashbots – Nintendo Switch | Review

While reviewing Crashbots I went through a plethora of emotions. I went from happiness to frustration, from frustration back to happiness and in the end, I did not really know what to feel about it. It's quite a strange game that at times I enjoyed but it's not really something…read more >

Zeroptian Invasion – PS4 | Review

Zeroptian Invasion – PS4 | Review

My review for Zeroptian Invasion is going to be short and sweet, much like this game. For less than £5 (or your locations equivalent) you can enjoy this modern take on 80’s arcade shooters, taking inspiration from all the greats such as Space invaders and centipede. The snippet of story…read more >
Jupiter & Mars – PS4 | Review

Jupiter & Mars – PS4 | Review

With global warming, climate change and rising sea levels becoming more and more prevalent in the public eye, it was only inevitable we’d get a game like Jupiter and Mars – a game that wears its eco message proudly, and to moderate success.  The majority of the game sees you…read more >
Giga Wrecker Alt – PS4 | Review

Giga Wrecker Alt – PS4 | Review

How crazy is it that people are surprised when a developer does something outside of their main franchise? It is almost as if we expect that at Gamefreak they are looking to the future at every given moment. I mean, after 800+ Pokemon, they have got to be starting to…read more >
Cuphead – Nintendo Switch | Review

Trüberbrook – PS4 | Review

Trüberbrook – PS4 | Review

Trüberbrook brings back some of my point and click gameplay nostalgia. It reminds of my lofty PC gaming days playing games like ToonStruck and the various LucasArts classics. Since then though I have started working in IT and there's nothing I want to see less when I get home than…read more >
World War Z – PS4 | Review

World War Z – PS4 | Review

Another swarm is about to engulf my team, even though I’ve experienced this before I am still in awe and petrified with what I am seeing. Panic sets in, we are outnumbered but I’ll be damned if this is where it ends. When World War Z was first revealed December…read more >

Falcon Age – PSVR | Review

Falcon Age – PSVR | Review

When I was growing up, I was taught that falcons were terrifying birds that weren’t to be trifled with – a breed of bird so fearsome and powerful that their whole family have safely secured a spot amongst the birds of prey. What I didn’t know is that falcons are…read more >
Modern Tales: Age of Invention – PS4 | Review

Modern Tales: Age of Invention – PS4 | Review

Another Artifex Mundi game, another chilled out relaxing platinum trophy. In the overwhelming bog of triple-A titles being released, it's nice now and again to relax and play something simple and easy going. I do like these games between big, all-encompassing titles because they don't take too much time and…read more >

Legendary Eleven – PS4 | Review

Football games have come a long way over the years to try to add to the content they offer to players.

Super Weekend Mode – PS4 | Review

Super Weekend Mode – PS4 | Review

What happens when you combine cutesy art, Galaga, boss rushing and elements of Guitar Hero into a mixing bowl? Well, I reckon that after mixing that all up that there would be something that resembles Super Weekend Mode by Pixelteriyaki. The next game in the long line of Steam Indie…read more >
Warparty – Nintendo Switch | Review

Warparty – Nintendo Switch | Review

War(party), huh, good god. What is it good for? Absolutely not…much to honest, but it’s a step in the right direction. The game is your typical RTS affair, sticking to the formula regular RTS players will right at home with. Build a formidable army, gather resources and upgrade your camp…read more >
