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.

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.

Peanut – PC – First Look

Peanut is a cutesy platformer for Steam, which released this week. Though I’d tried an earlier version, I’ve only just managed to give the release build a go. Peanut is the story of the eponymous corgi, whose BAE (yes, repeatedly referred to as Peanut’s BAE in game!) needs rescuing from the villain of the piece, Veronica Vet. There’s a short […]
