Review: Otherworldly

Version Played: Switch – $6.99/£6.29 – Published by: Ultimate Games I was excited to get my hands on Otherworldly; it looked like it had a real old school dungeon crawl feel, with horror elements such as jump scares thrown in the mix. Sadly, it’s quite a disappointing game. The dungeon is extremely dark; though this is intentional in order to […]

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: 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 […]

Review: Panzer Dragoon: Remake

Available Now on Switch – £22.49 – Developed by: Megapixel Studio SA – Published by: Forever Entertainment The original Panzer Dragoon was a launch title (in the West, at least) for the Saturn, Sega’s ultimately ill-fated 32-bit console. It was lauded upon release for it’s impressive presentation, with some very impressive (for the time) pre-rendered cinematic sequences and fast-paced on-rails […]

Film Review: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)

Following the ‘Spock Trilogy’ of movies (beginning with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, continuing with Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and ending with Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home), the status quo of Star Trek had been reset somewhat, story-wise. With Kirk demoted to Captain, back in charge of the Enterprise with his regular crew, it’s […]

Comic Book Review: Transformers/The Terminator #1

I’ve always been a fan of crazy, leftfield comic book crossovers. Comic books feel like the only place you can really get these utterly bizarre pairings of inter-company, multi-franchise characters – though we’ve seen some reach the big screen (Aliens vs Predator, for example) and the small screen (Batman vs TMNT, anyone?) – as well as video games (Robocop vs […]

Review: Pooplers

Version Played: Switch (also available on Steam) – $8.99/£8.09 – Art Games Studio SA Multiplayer party games aren’t in short supply on Switch, with lots of great titles to choose from. Pooplers is a game that had – until release – flown entirely under my radar, but it’s a surprisingly engaging experience. In the main versus mode of Pooplers, players […]

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 […]

Review: Poly Puzzle

Version Played: Switch – Available now (£4.49/$4.99) – Published by: Forever Entertainment There’s a huge amount of puzzle games available on the Switch. Plenty of them boast about how relaxing they are, but in my experience – with my brain often struggling to get to grips with most puzzlers – they can actually be pretty frustrating. Poly Puzzle is a […]

Film Review: Star Trek III: The Search For Spock (1984)

Though the Star Trek movies got off to a shaky start with the first film – The Motion Picture, which I reviewed here – the second film was an absolutely spectacular romp, full of high stakes action, superb writing and excellent character development. It ended on a pseudo-cliffhanger too, with the death of Spock. Despite Leonard Nimoy’s apparent desire for […]

Review: Ski Sniper

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£4.49/$4.99) Imagine Sniper Elite, only instead of sniping the testicles of German soldiers you’re shooting at skiers. And instead of being able to roam expansive levels, sniping at targets in whatever order you choose, generally at your own pace, instead you’re in a fixed position with only a few seconds to hit a fast […]

Review: Dungeon Adventure

Price: Free – Available via Amazon Alexa-enabled devices – Website Though there’s a lot of privacy-related concerns surrounding voice activated, always connected tech (which are more than justified, I might add), there’s some incredibly cool features that few people may know about, let alone even try. I’m not sure where or how I stumbled upon the idea of playing RPGs […]
