  • GLO PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 18, 2017 under Featured, Other, PC Review
    I don’t generally poorly implemented gimmicks in games, gameplay mechanics implemented to cover up subpar, ill thought out games that rely on one aspect to be interesting. With that in mind, I give you GLO on Steam! The latest piece of shovel ware to hit the platform, this time from developer Chronik Spartan. Gameplay: A simple platform puzzler, GLO has you controlling a square that must nav... more.
  • Space Colony Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 13, 2017 under Feature Articles, Featured, PC Review
    When I first booted up Space Colony, I was a bit taken aback. The interface was raw, the graphics were very 1990s in their plastic like presentation and the whole thing seemed slightly off? And then I realised what it was, I’d played this before! Firefly Studios had remastered Space Colony, an older game from 2003, and updated it with a spiffy Steam Edition, bringing it up to somewhat modern day... more.
  • Pixel Shinobi : Nine Demons of Mamoru PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 7, 2017 under Featured, Other, PC Review
    Like an actual Ninja, this game snuck up behind me, grabbed me unawares and demanded its presence be known, but only after sitting in the proverbial shadows at AAG a while. It bide its time before it struck, but when it did, boy oh boy did it leave its mark on me and then some. Pixel Shinobi: Nine Demons of Mamoru, comes to us from developer Ametist studio, a group I’d never honestly heard of be... more.
  • Friday the 13th PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 19, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    Sometimes, you have to look past a games initial faults to find the true value underneath. Now, let’s get this out of the way, I’m an unabashed Friday the 13th super fan. I grew up in the 1980s with these movies. I remember being at Plains Video in Brisbane, or other various video stores in tiny towns I lived in prior to that in the early 80s, and seeing a new chapter was about to hit. I’d f... more.
  • Swarm Universe PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 16, 2017 under Featured, Other, PC Review
    Swarm Universe I won’t lie frustrated me to begin with, but the more time I spent with it, it was, as Donkey said in Shrek, like an onion. No, it didn’t make me cry. It had layers. Once those layers became apparent I enjoyed the game far more than I thought I would. I do have issues with the game though, some superficial, some deeper than that. Overall, what do I think though? Read on… Co... more.
  • Paradigm PC Review

    Paradigm is a point and click adventure game from Australian developer Jacob Janerka. It was crowdfunded on Kickstarter back in 2014 and has just been released. Janerka is relatively unknown in the gaming world but since the release of this game that has quickly changed. With Paradigm, he has bought a resurgence back to point and click adventure games. Gameplay You play as Paradigm a mutated h... more.
  • Thimbleweed Park PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 16, 2017 under Featured, Other, PC Review
    Thimbleweed Park is bought to us from the minds of Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. If these names sound familiar, they were behind two of the most well known point and click adventure games; Maniac Mansion (1987) and The Secret of Monkey Island (1990) whilst working with Lucas Arts. Thimbleweed Park uses the same mechanics as these games that has become a staple for many adventure games to follow o... more.
  • PlaneScape Torment PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 16, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    It’s been such a long time since I played Planescape: Torment, I forgot what a glorious experience it was. I don’t think it’d be right to review the actual game itself for this review, after all, that game was made way back in 1999, and Beamdog isn’t so much remaking the game as much as giving it a well needed spitshine to bring it into the modern era. So let’s take a look at how that ef... more.
  • TurretCraft

    åYou know that feeling you have, when you really want to like a game, but you just cannot bring yourself to because there’s far too much wrong with it? That’s me with TurretCraft, the new game from developer Antropi. I want to like this game, I do. But competitive Tower Defence games are nothing new, I’ve been playing them since the days of Warcraft 3 and to be honest, I’ve been playing m... more.
  • The Exiled

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 2, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, after all, when you’re trying to be Diablo, why not copy Diablos best aspects? Well, that would be great if Diablo’s best aspects were what you were copying. Unfortunately for The Exiled, it merely copies some of Diablo’s worst imitators. From terrible net code, to uninspired combat, to bland, boring graphics, The Exiled is an exercise ... more.
  • Dungeon Souls

    Blackshell Games is branching out, now they bring us a new game from Lamina Studios called Dungeon Souls, a roguelike experience involving a warrior plundering the depths of a dungeon in search of treasure and eventually death in hope of… are we at the stage World War 2 simulators reached a decade ago yet? Are we over-inundated with roguelike experiences that they’ll honestly go for a while an... more.
  • Streets of Rogue

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 29, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    Streets of Rogue comes to us from developer Matt Dabrowski, via publisher tinyBuild. A seemingly simple, overhead 16-bit beat-em-up, I won’t lie, my first impression was ‘Oh god not another pixelart game’. That was, until I got into playing, then the chaos reigned. Streets of Rogue is *fun*. Definitely fun, it’s got a tongue in cheek sense of humour, a wicked sense of over the top chaos ab... more.
  • Void Expanse with Pariah’s Bane

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 19, 2017 under PC Review
    I’m going to preface this review by saying I love these kinds of games, and my addiction to these kinds of top down space exploration games goes right back to 1992 when I first played Epic Megagames SOLAR WINDS, a fantastic game that stoked my imagination about these sorts of games. Imagine years later when I picked up a copy of Wing Commander Privateer and the whole genre came to life again in ... more.
  • Torment Tides of Numenera

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 5, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    For fans of Planescape Torment back in 1999 the revisiting or as some call it the spiritual successor of Torment Tides of Numenera is a game which fans have cried out for but has taken an age to be made reality. Torment Tides of Numenera is an isometric RPG funded by fans through Kickstarter almost four years ago and as most Inxile campaigns go was well received by fans and funded accordingly. Tor... more.
  • Emily is Away

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 3, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    I recently came across an title on steam from the solo developer Kyle Seeley called Emily is Away, It's a choose your own adventure style interactive story based around the old 90s AIM. For those unaware AIM as one of the many ways us oldies use to communicate with our friends online, we didn’t have Facebook and at one stage we didn’t even have Myspace. All we had was AIM and MSN Messenger. So... more.
