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 […]

Early Access Impressions: Exoplanet: First Contact

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: 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: Jurassic World: Evolution DLC – The Secrets of Dr. Wu

It feels very timely to be writing this article today, mere hours after filming for the third film in the Jurassic World trilogy – the title for which has now been revealed as Jurassic World: Domination – has started.

Still coming… (NSFW)

I almost can’t believe that I’m writing about this again. The first time I wrote about this was last year, early on in my blogging days – and quickly became my most viewed post, holding that record for a number of months. Yet here we are. 2020 has arrived and Wanking Simulator is coming. That’s probably a poor choice of […]

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 2

I’ve long been a fan of the Jackbox Party Pack games. They’re amazing fun; each pack is a full game night for almost any number of players, with the added bonus that participants can use their phones to play the games. They’re wonderful, silly, funny and consistently witty games that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age or experience (though some […]

Review: Man of Medan

You know when a new game comes out, everyone is excited about it, sharing photos of the box and then screenshots and clips of the game – and this can go on for weeks, everyone around them getting more and more hyped until, eventually, they cave and buy the game themselves? That happened with Man of Medan incredibly briefly. It […]

Preview: Dungeon Dreams

Releasing at Christmas, Dungeon Dreams is looking incredibly promising. Fusing elements of JRPGs, dating sims, life sims and even town building elements, developers DDreams Games promise 90+ hours of gameplay, roguelike elements, a non-linear plot, an open ended quest system and lots more besides. It’s incredibly ambitious, especially for a small studio production. Having been fortunate enough to play a […]

Review: Killer Chambers (PC)

Version Played: Steam – Out Now (£3.99) – Developed & Published By: Village Bench There’s a real thrill in discovering a wonderful indie title that you just don’t get when you’re playing a big budget blockbuster that everyone’s been discussing to death. Part of it, I think, is the joy of discovery that you just can’t get with AAA games […]

Well, that escalated quickly…

The digital ink has barely dried on my very first Nintendo Life review – and yet, here’s another one! Thank you to everyone who was kind about my Beast Quest review, especially those of you who wanted me to get a chance to review a decent game next. Your wish came true! So without any further ado – here’s my […]

Review: Lonely Mountains: Downhill (XBox One)

Available Now – Version Played: Xbox One – Developed by: Megagon Industries – Published by: Thunderful Publishing Though Lonely Mountains: Downhill bills itself as a relaxing ride down a mountain trail, I actually find it pretty stressful most of the time. That’s not to say that I haven’t enjoyed it; nor that the scenery, art style and general ambience aren’t […]
