Preview: Unspottable

I played quite a few demos as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest, many of which were games that I’m very keen to get my hands on when they’re released. One that had flown under the radar for me until I tried the demo was Unspottable, which is honestly one of the best local multiplayer games I’ve played in […]

Review: Gamory Switch Controller

Looking like a cross between the controller that was bundled with ill-fated Android console, the Ouya, and an Xbox One controller, the Gamory Switch Controller isn’t going to win any points for originality. However unoriginal and uninspired the design may be, it makes up for this by being incredibly cheap and yet nicely featured, especially for the price point. Switch […]

First Impressions: Neon Abyss

Though the number of indie games that have roguelite elements or structures seems to be increasing exponentially, there are certain elements that make these elements really appealing, both from the designer’s and player’s perspective. Chief among these is the procedural generation, which usually helps to keep things feeling suitably fresh, exciting and surprising when done right. The level of challenge […]

News: CrossCode

Out Today on PS4, Switch and Xbox One – Available digitally – Physical version Pre-Orders: ININ Games Acclaimed PC action RPG CrossCode arrives on consoles today amid a flurry of phenomenal review scores. God is a Geek rated it 10/10 – and Metro have (perhaps prematurely) proclaimed CrossCode the RPG of the Year in their review. It’s a phenomenal achievement […]

Kickstarter: Neko Ghost, Jump!

I’ve always had a soft spot for cutesy 2D platformers, having grown up playing them in the 80s and 90s – and, mostly thanks to indie developers, they seem to be just as popular as ever today. The 3D platformer has been undergoing a bit of a resurgence recently too, with games such as Yooka-Laylee, not to mention the remastered […]

Preview: City Eye

Though Ultimate Games S.A. have been releasing lots of simulator games – from across the tonal spectrum, ranging from outrageously daft to serious recreations of actual, real world activities – they’ve just announced the release of a city surveillancesimulator on the PC which looks very different to any they’ve previously published. We live in a vastly monitored world, our movements […]

Review: Maneater

I was far too young for Jaws when I first watched it in the early 80s, but I became obsessed with it – and sharks in general. The fearsome, toothy killers of the deep are a perennially popular oceanic villain too; Shark Week is a thing, of course – and shark horror is essentially its own genre now, even if […]

Review: Windosill

Another title that’s part of the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality (which now contains over 1700 items for a $5 minimum – and ends tomorrow), Windosill is a gentle puzzle game that sees you poking, pulling, pushing, twisting and prodding different objects in order to open the way for a car to move to the next of the […]

Opinion: Maneater

I was well on course to have had a Maneater review ready by now, but unfortunately a bug in the game deleted my save file and wiped my 16+ hours of gameplay. Though developer Tripwire Interactive have said that they’re aware of the issue and are working on a patch to fix the problem, after two weeks on release there’s […]

Review: Fidel Dungeon Rescue

Available on Steam, itch.io – also Mac and iOS Though I’ve covered big budget blockbuster titles here a number of times, I find smaller, more inventive and unusual indie titles to be far more interesting to cover. Fidel Dungeon Rescue is a game that deserves an awful lot more recognition than it currently has. A cute little roguelike in which […]

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 […]
