Review: Deal of the Dead

Available now on mobile (free, ad supported) and itch.io Though they’re an omnipresent part of the 21st century pop culture landscape, I’m old enough to remember a time when zombie movies were considered way too extreme to be mainstream; few genres of horror were more looked down upon – though perhaps the spate of nasty cannibal movies seen in the […]

Review: Creature Street

Available now on PC (itch.io – pay what you want) It seems like everyone and their anthropomorphic dog is playing Animal Crossing right now, which is great. Though Animal Crossing has always been popular – I’ve been a huge fan since 2004 – with the arrival of Animal Crossing: New Horizons at a time when many people have an unusually […]

Review: Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Version Played: Xbox One (Xbox One X Enhanced) – also available on PS4 and PC Lockdown is a funny thing. I wouldn’t normally have had the time to work my way through a single Tomb Raider game in a reasonable period of time, let alone an entire trilogy. Yet that’s exactly what I’ve been able to do over the last […]

Review: Bug Academy

Version Played: Switch (also available on PC) – Price: £11.69/$12.99 – Published by: Ultimate Games Every now and then, a game comes along which really surprises you. Not always in a good way of course. Thankfully, Bug Academy is a game that surprises for the right reasons. A game about different types of insects working their way through lessons at […]

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: Pikuniku

Version Played: Xbox One I fell in love with Pikuniku as soon as I saw the wonderfully colourful, stylised visuals and bouncy animation. Thankfully, there’s a lot more to Pikuniku than meets the eye. Awaking in a cave and emerging to find yourself in a place where your little red character is feared as ‘The Beast’, Pikuniku sees you escaping […]

Review: Rage Among The Stars

Available Now on Steam (£2.89) There’s a certain breed of infuriatingly tough 2D platformer that, done right, can be incredibly addictive. Games such as Super Meat Boy, for example; super fast, incredibly hardcore experiences that – despite difficulty levels that can induce serious anger – are still incredibly addictive, almost endlessly leading to just one more go. They’re certainly built […]

Available Now on Steam: £14.99 – Developed by: Alersteam – Published by: GrabTheGames The Western – concerned as it often is with taming a new frontier, full of possibilities, danger and excitement – seems to be constantly appealing. Likewise, the Space Western, that shares many of the same tropes, imagery and themes as its earthbound, historically-based forebear, holds a similar […]

Review: Wa*king Simulator

Available now on Steam – £7.99 The opening disclaimer of Wanking Simulator insists that, by proceeding beyond that point, you cannot take offence at any of the LGBTQ references included in the game. After all, it states, it’s just a joke. The problem is, it’s hard to tell what the joke actually is. Or why there’s any need to direct […]

Review: Nova Drift

Available Now on Steam and itch.io – Price: $14.99 When you first start playing Nova Drift, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s essentially an updated, upgraded, neon drenched Asteroids tribute. Your ship is controlled with thrust using the left trigger of a controller, with your weapon fired using the right trigger. So far, so standard, right? Then you start […]
