Trailer: Dash Dash World

VR Kart racing/combat game Dash Dash World is a title that I’ve taken a look at a few times before – and as release nears, it’s looking like it’ll provide an awful lot of fast paced, cartoony fun.

Review: Shmubedi Boo

Don’t be fooled by the cutesy name and visuals of Shmubedi Boo – it’s an extremely challenging single screen platformer with incredibly devious level design, not unlike a non-scrolling Super Meat Boy, though far more colourful and kawaii than that game ever was. The plot – which is largely irrelevant – sees an evil rabbit stealing apples from the inhabitants […]

However, an addictive, varied and surprisingly expansive […]

Kickstarter: HoverGrease

I’m always impressed by the ingenuity, tenacity and general inventiveness of small indie teams. HoverGrease – which is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter – is, almost unbelievably, the work of a two person team, Altergaze.

It’s hard to express exactly how much of an impact Rare’s N64-exclusive movie tie-in had at the time of its release; perhaps it’s even more remarkable due to its status as a licensed title that was released two years […]
