  • Puzzle Puppers

    Puzzle Puppers comes to us from Castle Keep. This puzzle game is simple, but kind of beyond my age range, this review is going to be written from two perspectives, which I believe is important given, Gameplay Gameplay is a very simple point and click affair, you have a dog that stretches out over a grid, you have to guide the dog to its bowl as its stretches along like a snake, eating the food... more.
  • First thoughts on Resident Evil 7

    If the Evil Dead remake, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Silent Hill had a baby, this would be it. I don’t honestly know where to start with this game, but I have *nothing* but praise. From the insanely beautiful, yet horrifically gut wrenching graphics, to the fantastically executed sound, aesthetics are *everything* in Resident Evil 7. Capcom has performed a comeback of Travolta like magnitude ... more.

    About 12 years ago, I was living in a share house and – as is typical of those in this situation – didn’t have a ton of money to throw around. To keep my entertainment “budget” cheap, I would scour second-hand stores in the area for cheap fantasy novels, history books and those old Time-Life/Reader’s Digest publications about the paranormal. Basically, stuff that could take up a lot of... more.
  • She Remembered Caterpillars

    She Remembered Caterpillars is a point and click puzzle adventure from the team at Jumpsuit Entertainment which has been released on the Steam platform. They describe it themselves as “A fungipunk fantasy about love, loss, and holding on” and there is no doubt the concept and characters are at their core very cute. So is this enough to warrant a $12 purchase or is this a wish-list and wait ti... more.
  • Minos Strategos

    I quite enjoy board games, so I was interested in reviewing this one as it sits well in my comfort zone, Minos Strategos is an interesting game for me, as it's an exercise in displaying just how sometimes, less truly is more. Gameplay Board games come in two varieties I find for video games in terms of controls. Ridiculously easy, or overtly stupidly complex. Thankfully, Minos Strategos fall... more.
  • Pixel Survivor

    Pixel Survivor was developed by Sachonski, Renamilanesi and Sith for Patagoniart Studio released back in May 2016. When playing Pixel Survivor, I have flashbacks to the original Settler games from back in the day, mixed in with the difficulty of Dark Souls (not sure how simply over expanding leads to my population being eaten by zombies but please continue reading). Pixel Survivor is a god managem... more.
  • Vindictive Drive

    Retro games are all the rage at the moment, made all the easier to create by great software such as RPG Maker VX Ace. That being said, getting into playing “Vindictive Drive” was both an interesting and frustrating experience where frustration came by in no short amount and interest waned quickly to the point of boredom due to bad game design, limited controls and frustrating design choices. ... more.
  • The Pasture

    Having just finished playing the beta of The Pasture, I have to say it's........ interesting. The Pasture is on PC via Steam and flows between an art simulator mixed with a failed protagonist drifting between different genres and control styles. The game concept felt very simple yet provides a range of different emotions while playing from hopelessness to a vague understanding of art which I’m ... more.

    Publisher: DC/BOOM! Studios Writer: Tom Taylor Art: Stephen Byrne Cover: Karl Kerschl Year: 2017 The Justice League are my favourite superhero team, and I loved The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a kid. Or more accurately, I liked the concept…it’s a show that hasn’t aged terribly well. However I thought it pretty cool to see these two teams paired up together in this comic. OR IS IT? ... more.

    “Age of Entitlement is over” Age of Decadence is an turn based Role Playing Game by an indie developer Iron Tower Studios that I stumbled across on Steam for a cheeky 10 dollars while on holidays. Let me warn you, unlike most games you will be unable to complete every possible play-through or ending with one character or playing style. Age of Decadence includes multiple endings, stat requirem... more.
  • Retro Fit For Mobile

    0 CommentsPosted by on January 12, 2017 under Feature Articles, Featured
    We are living in a time when mobile gaming is pushing to become more and more acceptable, it’s just held back in my opinion by the amount of clones out there that are all about popping jelly and finishing lines to make them vanish. While we all want original content, the budget style of the mobile marketplace would be a wonderful fit for some of those much loved retro titles, a good platform to ... more.
