From the amazing humans and Mudokons over at ‘Oddworld Inhabitants’ comes this beautiful reminder that there really is no expiration date on a quality game. 23 years after the original “Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee” introduced us to our favorite gangly, slightly funny shaped, blue hero Abe, Oddworld Inhabitants have teamed up

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

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

Darkestville Castle – Review

I try not to think of myself as sadistic, but Darkestville Castle is the story of a demon who spends every day terrorising the town of Darkestville…and I have never laughed so much in a video game. This classic point-and-click game developed by the (clearly hilarious) legends at Epic Llama

Relicta – Review

This first-person, physics-based puzzle game developed by Mighty Polygon and published by Ravenscourt is one challenge I dove into. Now it may be hard to believe, but I’m probably one of the few people that have never really played games like Portal or other physics/puzzle games. I’m not known for

Marvel’s Iron Man VR – Review

Ever since the movie premiered back in May 2008, Iron Man has been my favourite Marvel character. Not only is Tony Stark an incredibly cool billionaire playboy philanthropist, the thought of flying around clad in a near indestructible suit of armour always appealed to me. Needless to say, I was

Disintegration – Review

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of robots and A.I., just the idea and imagery of a robot or android with it’s own intelligence adapting and learning enhancements, is an incredible concept. Didn’t help when movies like Terminator and Robocop came out and threw hardcore violence into the mix.
