Review: Safety First!

There’s no getting around it – Safety First is a bizarre, gross and hilarious physics-based puzzler. Despite its crude appearance – both in terms of simplicity and subject matter – […]

Review: Not Not – A Brain Buster

Available now on: Switch (version played), Android & iOS I’ve always been incredibly quick to inform people when they’ve committed the ultimate sin: using a double negative. Though correction can often be met with bafflement and the offender still going on to use phrases such as ‘I didn’t say nothing’ when they mean the complete opposite, it’s something I’m unable […]

Review: One Line Coloring

Available: 21st August 2020 on Steam, Switch, iOS and Android There’s something to be said for smaller scale games with a laser focus on just a few brilliantly refined and compelling mechanics. One Line Coloring is a game of this nature; essentially, all you do is trace lines around different patterns – not unlike a dot-to-dot puzzle – attempting to […]

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 […]

Board Game Review: Cat Crimes

Though I’ve filed this article under ‘board games’, Cat Crimes isn’t a tabletop game in the traditional sense. It’s more of a solitaire logic puzzle, though of course multiple players can combine they grey matter and attempt to solve the 40 puzzles in the rather nicely packaged collection. What players will be looking to solve are a variety of ‘crimes’ […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Mysterious Museum

Every time I write about a game in the Exit: The Game series of escape-room-at-home type experiences, I’m setting myself a ridiculous challenge. How on earth do I talk about it without spoiling the contents or giving away what clever little puzzles lay within this particular box of fiendish challenges? If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll know […]

Review: Depixtion

Version Played: Switch – Price: $7.99/£TBC I first played and reviewed Depixtion last year, albeit on PC. I’m pleased to say that it’s as good on Switch as it was […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Haunted Rollercoaster

I’ve written about the Exit games before, but never about a specific game from the rather extensive range that’s currently available. There’s a reason for that; as Escape Room-esque experiences that you can only play once, they rely on players knowing as little as possible before they start the game. This makes it extremely difficult to talk about each one […]
