Review: Use Your Words

Version Played: Xbox One (also available on PC, PS4 and Switch) A local multiplayer party game that’s suitable for non-gamers, using your mobile phone to play? Sounds very familiar, doesn’t it? Use Your Words really does hew very closely to the Jackbox template, though it only focuses on a single game concept, where each Jackbox Party Pack has multiple, varied […]

It was this type of cartoon that I was most reminded of when […]

Terrorhythm – Switch

Terrorhythm – Out Now on Switch (£8.99) – Published by Forever Entertainment There’s an immediate appeal to Terrorhythm’s beautifully stylised visuals and pulsing electronic soundtrack; it’s intoxicating. Feeling like a hybrid of the beautiful, compelling synaesthesia of Rez and – to me, at least – NES/arcade classic Kung Fu/Kung Fu Master, Terrorhythm eventually hits all the right notes, but there’s […]
