Review: Appointment with F.E.A.R.

Version Played: Steam (also available on Android and iOS) To say that I was obsessed with Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone’s Fighting Fantasy books as a kid is the understatement of the century. I absolutely lived and breathed them; though I couldn’t afford to buy them new most of the time, I would borrow any I found in my local […]

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 […]

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 […]

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: 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 […]

Happy Mario Day!

Seeing as MAR 10 is Mario Day, I thought I’d take the opportunity to once more cover my experience with the very first Super Mario Bros game I ever played […]

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 […]

Opinion: Google Stadia – Staying Alive?

This time last year (or close enough – the announcement came at GDC 2019 on the 19th of March), Google were busy hyping up their incredible looking games streaming service – Stadia. It was a massive and presumably very expensive event, for a service that was – again, presumably – very costly to develop and launch. Pre-orders for the Founders […]

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 […]
