9 Monkeys of Shaolin – Review

Another week, another review, and this time I get the chance to play 9 Monkeys of Shaolin. I like most things to do with martial arts, especially a Cinemax show called Warrior. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Now this game takes me back to old-time Kung

The Survivalists – Review

Imagine being stranded on an island, washed up on a beach with nothing but the shirt on your back. Do you think you could survive? With the steadily increasing list of survival games, I think most people feel like they’d have some idea. I mean, you can simply punch a

Projection: First Light – Review

‘Projection: First Light’ is a unique game with a classic platformer wrapper tied neatly around it. Developed by Shadowplay Studios and published by Blowfish Studios, this game is played out in the gorgeous shadow puppet style of ancient Asia.

Going Under – Review

Coining “Not all heroes get paychecks”, there isn’t a lot not to love about Aggro Crab’s game “Going Under” published by Team17 Digital. You never know what sort of hero is standing next to you and who would have thought it could be just a lowly intern in this humorous

Serious Sam 4 – Review

My goodness, how the hell have I slept on this series?! I remember seeing this game, back in the day, and thinking ‘What the hell is Serious Sam? Is that like BomberMan?’. I think Duke Nukem was out at the time, so I was persuaded to duke it out with

When The Past Was Around – Review

Puzzle games have never really been my thing. I will quite often overlook even the most obvious of details while scrutinizing things that really don’t require any attention. As a result, I find them to be somewhat frustrating to play and will generally avoid them, even really popular action-adventure puzzlers

The Suicide Of Rachel Foster – Review

The Suicide of Rachel Foster is published by Daedalic Entertainment, and developed by One O One Games, Reddoll Games, Centounopercento – 101% and Reddoll S.R.L. Walking sims are a category I never really knew existed in video games until this game was handed to me. I did a little research,

Party Hard 2 – Review

You just want to sleep, I feel that more than anyone and I can totally understand that driving someone to a mass spree of murder. “Party Hard 2” is just that, one person’s journey into madness as the party scene destroys his life. I have never played the first ‘’Party

Ary And The Secret Of Seasons – Review

The only good part of a pandemic? Making video games even more fantastical. For example, ‘Ary and the Secret of Seasons’ introduces us to our young heroine, Aryelle, as she travels the vast world of Valdi and enjoys all four seasons- OUTDOORS! What a fantasy in 2020. Developed by eXiin
