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 […]

Weekly Round Up

I seemed to cover an awful lot of ground this week; though it was at my usual pace of an article a day, it certainly felt as if I covered more than usual. So I wouldn’t blame you if you missed anything; it seems to me that it’s a good idea take a look at what I wrote about over […]

Review: Down to Hell

Version Played: Switch – Out Now – Price £8.99/$9.99 – Published by: Ultimate Games SA I always think that developers make their lives so much harder for themselves when creating […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I last covered the games that I’ve been playing on Game Pass; it’s a service that has become absolutely essential for me. I’m often unable to justify spending the full RRP on games, given my limited budget, but Game Pass removes that barrier for many big games; crucially, they’re also available on the same day […]

First Impressions: Bloody Trains

A phrase I can be heard muttering to myself quite often on the commute home from work, Bloody Trains is another game from indie developer and purveyor of very odd experiences, Marginal Act. I’ve looked at two of their games before – baffling tea delivery simulator TUTUTUTU Tea Party and Vasilis. The former seems to share quite a lot of […]

Board Game Review: Terrible Monster

I’ve spent the last few days reviewing small, clever and unique board games – and I’m continuing the theme today. It’s almost Christmas, after all – and surely the festive period is the ideal time to be checking out board games! As tiny games go, Terrible Monster is one of the smallest there is. It’s comprised of just sixteen cards […]

Super Co-Op Adventure is one […]

Preview: Pecaminosa

Pecaminosa – Due: End of 2020 – By: Cereal Games Though currently around a little way out from release (which is mooted for the end of 2020), Pecaminosa is an indie game that shows incredible promise. A ‘pixel noir’ game, Pecaminosa is an action-RPG title with a great visual style and superb character design. The story, which sees drunken ex-cop […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s that time again – I haven’t done this for a while, but every now and then I do a little round up of the games I’ve been checking out as part of my Game Pass subscription. There’s an awful lot of games on offer, with a surprising number of indie titles that could go under the radar – but, […]

Kickstarter: DicTater

I’ve always enjoyed Civ games – and turn based strategy games in general, but there’s always one problem: I’m awful at them. I seem to spend ages mucking around at a prehistoric level of development – when I finally encounter AI colonies, they’ve always outpaced me in technology and weapons by a good few hundred years, somehow. Still, I love […]
