I’m back for another review, though this time it’s on the Switch with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition, a construction and management simulation video game, published under the Frontier Foundry games label.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars – Review

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is a turn-based strategy game developed by Palindrome Interactive and published by Kalypso Media. This game is very reminiscent of the old ‘Warcraft’ games and ‘Age of Empires’, in certain ways at least. What I was even more surprised by was how much the combat reminded

Iron Harvest 1920+ – Review

We have experienced and played all types of games, T.V. Shows and Movies with alternative histories, but ‘Iron Harvest’ brings something different.

Timelie – Review

‘Timelie’ is a time based puzzle game developed by ‘Urnique Studio’. Going in, I had no idea what to expect but I was very pleased with the experience. As soon as the game opens, players are introduced to a minimalist menu with soft ambient music playing. This perfectly sets the

Feeling nostalgic and looking for a game? Enjoy playing puzzles that can be equally frustrating and rewarding? You are going to want to give ‘Keen: One Girl Army’ developed by Cat Nigiri, a shot. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of a sliding puzzle game that has “tactical combat” made

Total Tank Simulator – Review

Growing up, every person surely had this experience: Either your relative, neighbour, friend or that kid you were forced to sit and play with at play time had this basic, run of the mill, army kit. The kit was flooded with green army men, all of which were holding various

XCOM: Chimera Squad – Review

I remember seeing an edition of XCOM (XCOM: Enemy Unknown) many years ago and thinking, ‘What is this alien rampage shooter thingy?’ Shortly thereafter, I found myself strangely addicted to its turn-based battle style game. It blew my mind that the 2012 game I was currently lost in was actually

Monster Train – Preview

I’ve played a few trading card games in my life. Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, a few forgettable virtual ones, and one particularly good one.
