  • 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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
  • Choppa

    Choppa is bought to us from Parta Games. It reminds me instantly of old arcade style games that were on the Atari system back in the day. Everything from the 8bit graphics to the sound give you a this sense of nostalgia. The game even encourages you to use a controller however I don’t have one compatible with my computer so Keyboard it was for me. Gameplay is pretty simple yet challenging. Yo... more.
  • Burley Men At Sea

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 26, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    A game does not always have to have immediate threat to present challenge and interest, the imminent looming demon of defeat careening down upon you with a ‘game over’ screen does not always need to be present to inspire one to progress further for entertainment. Burly Men at Sea, henceforth known as BMAS, is at once an interesting folk tale and simplified adventure game that works pleasantly ... more.
  • Rogue Stache

    I’m going to level with you, I had zero idea what to expect with this game other than the idea it involved mustaches somehow. I mean, when I started it up, I had to giggle a bit at it, the idea a twin stick 2d side scrolling shooter would rely on that old macho stereotype of the manly man’s mustache providing the main characters special powers really tickled my funny bone. The fact you can get... more.
  • Rotation Phonology: Break

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 21, 2017 under PC Review
    Sometimes I get a game that baffles me. I know I want to like it? I know it’s not really terrible, but the concept escapes me, the controls just feel uninspired and the game itself just feels like it’s been slapped together with good intent but poor execution. I think honestly that describes Rotation Phonology: Break (Henceforth known as RPB) to a tee, “Good intent but poor execution” hone... more.
  • Card Quest

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 20, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    Card Quest is a dungeon crawling adventure game with unique card combat. Like most card games of its genre using the same old tactic will not work for all situations (so for me simply using all my cards to speed through each battle did fail early on). Developed by the indie publisher Winterspring games and published in 2017 by Black Shell Media Card Quest is a strategy card game yet keeps to its c... more.

    Our man Steve reviews Overture for the pc. From Black Shell Games, Overture is a top down, Gauntlet inspired dungeon crawler that will test your mettle, asking you to endure death after death after death in order to become the best adventurer around! Do you have what it takes? 24 characters, mutliple advancements, weapons, multiple enemies and one hell of a challenging game add up to a great time ... more.
  • Invisible Apartment

    I must’ve been around 7 or 8 years old, I received these books, these fantastic books at the time called “Zork”, Bivotar and Juranda, the main characters were on a quest to find the three Palantirs of Zork and to defeat the evil sorcerer Krill. A choose your own adventure, these opened my eyes up to interactive storytelling and I’ve been a fan of this style for years since. I’ve seen pr... more.
