Review: Nova Drift

Available Now on Steam and itch.io – Price: $14.99 When you first start playing Nova Drift, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s essentially an updated, upgraded, neon drenched Asteroids tribute. Your ship is controlled with thrust using the left trigger of a controller, with your weapon fired using the right trigger. So far, so standard, right? Then you start […]

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 […]

Film Review: Star Trek III: The Search For Spock (1984)

It ended on a pseudo-cliffhanger too, with the death of Spock. Despite Leonard Nimoy’s apparent desire for […]

Review: Ski Sniper

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£4.49/$4.99) Imagine Sniper Elite, only instead of sniping the testicles of German soldiers you’re shooting at skiers. And instead of being able to roam expansive levels, sniping at targets in whatever order you choose, generally at your own pace, instead you’re in a fixed position with only a few seconds to hit a fast […]

Oivo Switch VR Headset

I was asked to check out Oivo’s Switch VR Headset (disclaimer: they provided me with a unit to review) and I’m pleased to say that it’s a robust and comfortable alternative to Nintendo’s cardboard Labo headset, with the added advantage of the user not being required to hold it in place. The only thing that lets it down is something […]

Review: Dungeon Adventure

Price: Free – Available via Amazon Alexa-enabled devices – Website Though there’s a lot of privacy-related concerns surrounding voice activated, always connected tech (which are more than justified, I might add), there’s some incredibly cool features that few people may know about, let alone even try. I’m not sure where or how I stumbled upon the idea of playing RPGs […]
