Alphaman, a cute 2D platformer by Heartfelt games, and is a game that will either leave you wanting more or ready to throw your controller at the wall. Heartfelt games have been around for a few years, their motto is “making games from the heart”; a very sweet affirmation that

Killer Queen Black – Review

Buy It, play it, you’ll love it! My review for Killer Queen Black is done now. Thanks, and goodnight! Well, maybe, I suppose I should tell you why… Ok then… Killer Queen Black is the console adaption of the arcade eSport game “Killer Queen”. Killer Queen Black has been rebuilt

Ghost Blade HD – Review

Ghost Blade HD is a new top down shoot’em up available for the Nintendo Switch. Sadly, it fails to hit the nail on the head before it even begins, as it doesn’t really offer anything new to the genre. Instead, relying purely on nostalgia to pull in players. Expecting you

Rising Hell – Review

Rising Hell is a fast paced, heavy metal vertical platformer developed by Tahoe Games and published by Another Indie and Toge Productions. Being in Early Access, this roguish game brings a lot of potential and fun. Starting off, Rising Hell being in Early Access by no means should be a

ReadySet Heroes – Review

I’m normally a big fan of dungeon crawlers. Making my way across the map, exploring every nook and cranny looking for that epic weapon, or that one armour piece that makes you resistant to all damage types. Leveling up a character and choosing my own destiny has a huge appeal

Walking Zombie 2 – Review

Walking Zombie 2 was developed and published by Alda Games. This new free to play, zombie apocalypse first person shooter offers a whole lot of fun. It’s an energetic and funny shooter with RPG elements and a cartoon/Minecraft look that does not take itself too seriously. With a story-line that

Stela – Review

Stela developed by SkyBox Labs, not known for horroresque type platformers, is a beautifully grim tale following our hero, Stela, who must face both physical and mental demons through a desolate and decaying world. Anyone that knows me, knows these thriller type, indie creepy games are as far as I’ll

Shadows And Dust – Review

Shadows and Dust is an unique interactive experience that presents a deeply personal interaction with themes of suicide, mental illness and depression all based on representations of the author’s own nightmares. Without a warning, Shadows and Dust throws you straight into the world that is created via a combination of

Neo Cab – Review

Technology, is a bane of my existence. It is engrained in every aspect of our lives and it sucks, but it is essential to progress and is rooted firmly in society. I hate it, but I rely so much on it. This game had me thinking like I often do;

Heist – Review

Heist is a noir, cat burglar game that puts you in control of a smooth, trench coat wearing, gadget wielding thief that has no name and no intention to be seen. With stealth as their key weapon of choice along with a variety of gadgets at your disposal it is

Whipseey And The Lost Atlas – Review

Blowfish studios, the independent, Australian video game publisher are back, not long either, after dropping a previous extremely fun title, ‘SubDivision Infinity DX’. I was given the pleasure of playing and reviewing that too which is available on their website, so I was definitely excited to get my hands on

Subdivision Infinity DX – Review

This little gem I’ve been toiling away with recently is from Sydney based Publisher, Blowfish Studios. When I was offered this to review, I was expecting an indie style game but what I got was a little under 2Gb of pure fun! Space! The final frontier… Or is it? I

The Forbidden Arts – Review

I live for indie developers and the unexpected jewels they produce at times. How can you not admire the ambitiousness of a little fish in a big fish’s pond? Stingbot Games out of California, inspired by retro classics have developed ‘The Forbidden Arts’, released in Early Access on Steam in

Damsel (Xbox One) – Review

Somewhat surprisingly, I’m actually starting to enjoy some of the more arcade style games we’ve been getting recently. It’s been a very nice change of pace and we can generally get a pretty good idea of the game in a relatively short period of time. Plus, when you live in

Pawarumi – Review

I’m not quite old enough for Space Invaders to be a game I grew up with, but I am old enough to remember seeing it in arcades as a stand-alone system, rather than those gaming tables you quite often see in a local pub. I do, however, remember playing some

Let’s Go Nuts – Review

Let’s Go Nuts by BeardedBrothers.Games is certainly a different game, you feel right at home yet also like you are staying at that creepy aunt’s house you’ve never met before. The platforming is so familiar, but the game mechanics are a fresh and unfamiliar take on this tried and true

Etherborn – Review

Well, here we are again! Back and ready to re-dive into the wonderfully creative and mind-bending game of Altered Matter’s Etherborn.  Previously, I wrote about the preview / demo version of this game, giving you a vast outline of what was currently available for this title, the wonders it holds

The Padre – Review

I have never really played any TellTale style games. I think I gave one a shot, but I didn’t enjoy it, so much so, that I don’t even recall the name of it. To me they always felt slow and one directional. I know this isn’t always the case, but

Sea of Solitude – Review

Overwhelming sadness, guilt, grief and loneliness. The times we do experience these feelings, it does indeed feel as if you are drowning in an endless expanse of water. Games that highlight mental health may seem like the ‘in’ craze at the moment, but whose to say this is a bad
