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 […]

Board Game Review: Nessos

I’ve got to be honest – I didn’t think I’d enjoy Nessos at all. Though it bills itself as Greek Deduction & Bluff right there on the box, the theme is next to irrelevant to the gameplay and in truth, given how it feels quite pasted on, could just as easily be Norse, Samurai or Cyberpunk themed without it making […]

Board Game Review: 8-Bit Box: Double Rumble

Iello’s 8-Bit Box is an absolutely fantastic concept. Styled as a classic console, it comes bundled with three games that each use their own custom components as well as shared bits and pieces from the core box, such as player controllers, dice and cubes. Each of the separate titles is packaged like a SNES game, with many video game-esque design […]

Review: Pac-Man 256

Though it’s been around for some time – having been released in 2015 for Android and iOS – I decided to reacquaint myself with Pac-Man 256 following the 40th birthday of the perenially popular yellow dot-muncher. It’s a superb little game; essentially a Pac-Man meets Crossy Road endless runner (which is no coincidence – Hipster Whale developed both Crossy Road […]

Board Game Review: Bunny Kingdom

With Magic: The Gathering and King of Tokyo alone, Richard Garfield is behind two of my all time favourite games. What I find appealing about Garfield’s games is that they’re generally simple to grasp – albeit quite often with a bit of a learning curve – but with a wealth of choices available to players on each turn. This gives […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Stormy Flight

I honestly don’t know why I do this to myself. After covering three brilliant, incredibly clever, fourth wall breaking games in the Exit series, I’m now onto the fourth – The Stormy Flight. It’s ridiculously hard to write a review of the Exit games, because the puzzles and even the box itself can contain spoilers. They are, however, worth covering […]

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 […]

Review: Jurassic World: Evolution DLC – The Secrets of Dr. Wu

It feels very timely to be writing this article today, mere hours after filming for the third film in the Jurassic World trilogy – the title for which has now been revealed as Jurassic World: Domination – has started.
