FlensGameDev Creators Bundle

Celebrating the talent in the development community of Flensburg, Germany, the FlensGameDev Creators Bundle – now on itch.io – brings together fifteen different games, with a minimum cost of just $5 for the whole bundle. There’s the Centipede-esque Hummingz, which marries the classic single screen shooting action of the Atari arcade game with some brilliantly detailed and naturalistic visuals. It’s […]

Kickstarter: Sniper Elite – The Board Game

I was late to the party with Rebellion’s hugely popular, long-running Sniper Elite series. The first one I played was Sniper Elite 3; I was immediately blown away by the open nature of each stage and the huge variety on offer with which to cause gory, sometimes painfully detailed, chaos. The Sniper Elite games see players cast as – spoiler […]

Review: Bombfest

Available on: PC, PS4, Switch & Xbox One Though I’ve seen many gamers in recent years lament the decline of couch multiplayer titles in the last few console generations – growing up, as we did, with games such as Bomberman, Mario Kart, Goldeneye and more – it’s clear that they’re missing out on some fantastic experiences that have been available […]

Review: Donut County

I find myself increasingly bored by big scale, so-called triple-A open world collectathons in which the entire experience is diluted by endless icons dotted around gargantuan, intimidating maps. Most of what you end up doing in so many big open world games these days just ends up feeling like completely pointless busywork, there to pad out the running time of […]

Preview: Unspottable

I played quite a few demos as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest, many of which were games that I’m very keen to get my hands on when they’re released. One that had flown under the radar for me until I tried the demo was Unspottable, which is honestly one of the best local multiplayer games I’ve played in […]

Board Game Review: Dungeon Mayhem: Monster Madness

My love for Dungeons & Dragons is well documented at this point. I’ve spoken many, many times about how my very first D&D set was the lovely Basic D&D starter set in its iconic red box edition in the mid-80s. Full of wonderfully bizarre and unique monsters such as the Gelatinous Cube and Owlbear – alongside more ‘standard’ creatures such […]

Review: Stars Rush

Available on itch.io (works in browser and on mobile) There’s nothing groundbreaking or revolutionary about Stars Rush. It’s a cute little game – that’ll work in your browser or just […]

Review: Totally Reliable Delivery Service

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Switch, PS4, PC Though not a new phenomenon, I’ve certainly noticed the rise of chaotic, physics based sandbox games since the release – and success – of Goat Simulator. Hilariously bonkers games such as Octodad, I Am Bread and Human Fall Flat immediately spring to mind when thinking of this type of […]

Review: Panzer Dragoon: Remake

Available Now on Switch – £22.49 – Developed by: Megapixel Studio SA – Published by: Forever Entertainment The original Panzer Dragoon was a launch title (in the West, at least) for the Saturn, Sega’s ultimately ill-fated 32-bit console. It was lauded upon release for it’s impressive presentation, with some very impressive (for the time) pre-rendered cinematic sequences and fast-paced on-rails […]

Review: Pooplers

Version Played: Switch (also available on Steam) – $8.99/£8.09 – Art Games Studio SA Multiplayer party games aren’t in short supply on Switch, with lots of great titles to choose from. Pooplers is a game that had – until release – flown entirely under my radar, but it’s a surprisingly engaging experience. In the main versus mode of Pooplers, players […]

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 […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Haunted Rollercoaster

I’ve written about the Exit games before, but never about a specific game from the rather extensive range that’s currently available. There’s a reason for that; as Escape Room-esque experiences that you can only play once, they rely on players knowing as little as possible before they start the game. This makes it extremely difficult to talk about each one […]

Review: Clumsy Rush

Available Now on Nintendo Switch (£4.99/$4.99) I didn’t know what to expect when trying Clumsy Rush for the first time. It has a lovely, squishy look to the characters – […]

Review: Roll’d

Out: Now – Price: £1.79/$1.99 – Nintendo Switch A strange but oddly compelling little game, Roll’d dumps you into proceedings without telling you anything at all – your little character running along a pathway for…reasons. It takes a few seconds – and a few failures – to truly grasp what’s going on. You don’t control the character at all; in […]
