Review: Poly Puzzle

Version Played: Switch – Available now (£4.49/$4.99) – Published by: Forever Entertainment There’s a huge amount of puzzle games available on the Switch. Plenty of them boast about how relaxing they are, but in my experience – with my brain often struggling to get to grips with most puzzlers – they can actually be pretty frustrating. Poly Puzzle is a […]

Film Review: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)

The fourth film in the Star Trek movie series concluded a tightly knit trilogy of stories, continuity-wise. Though The Voyage Home does diverge in tone and content to the previous two films, it nonetheless picks up right after the climax of The Search for Spock –  with our crew still on Vulcan, manning a Klingon Bird of Prey rather than […]

Though I’ve shone a spotlight on Pecaminosa a few times before, the game’s Indiegogo campaign is live as of today – so it’s a great opportunity to spread the word of this wonderful looking game once more. Billed as a ‘Pixel Noir’ game, Pecaminosa is a game that has definitely had my attention for a long time now. Dripping in […]

Opinion: Google Stadia – Staying Alive?

This time last year (or close enough – the announcement came at GDC 2019 on the 19th of March), Google were busy hyping up their incredible looking games streaming service – Stadia. It was a massive and presumably very expensive event, for a service that was – again, presumably – very costly to develop and launch. Pre-orders for the Founders […]
