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

Damsel (PC) – Review

Damsel is a fast paced, action platformer brought to you by Screwtape Studios, with its non-stop thrills and stylish look, Damsel is a speed runners and action platform players’ dream. The story is set in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, but the story primarily revolves around the main

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

Dragon Star Varnir – Review

In the world of Vaneria, an ongoing war rages between humans, witches and dragons. The humans see both the witches and dragons as threats to their society and want them all dead. The dragons are large beasts who naturally want to destroy anything and everything around them. The witches have

The Sinking City – Review

The Sinking City brings life to the quirky, H.P Lovecraft mythos in this adventure and investigator game developed by Frogwares and published by Bigben Interactive. Frogwares are famously known for previously working on the Sherlock Holmes games such as the Devil’s Daughter and Crimes & Punishment. With The Sinking City,

Furwind – Review

Platforming games are a bit of a retro gamer staple. They have been around for a long time, so in saying that, it is very hard to be innovative on a tried and tested genre. What will the delightful platformer ‘Furwind’ by Boomfire Games do to make it stand out

Terraria – Review

I never had the chance to really get into building games such as Minecraft which is surprising because games that get the creative juices flowing have always piqued my interest. Due to the overwhelming number of children that flock to these communities, I will admit it also has scared me

Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled – Review

The year is 1999, a mere 5 years since the release of Sony’s PlayStation. We’ve currently spent half a decade with family friend like characters such as a dragon named Spyro, a strange slave escapee on Oddworld called Abe, a British tomb raider named Lara Croft and a cooky, orange

Layers Of Fear 2 – Review

Layers of Fear 2 is a psychological horror video game developed and published by Bloober Team who are the minds behind the first Layers of Fear and Observer. I love anything to do with horror, especially gaming! Outlast 1 & 2, Friday the 13th, I even played Slenderman when it

Unruly Heroes – Review

Unruly Heroes follows four unlikely characters on their journey to the west in this side scrolling action adventure. If you didn’t already know, this game follows monkey and his three companions in a story that is inspired by the Chinese legend ‘A journey to the west’ better known as the

Blood & Truth – Review

I remember as a kid, running around the back yard pretending to be a soldier, or a police officer, carrying a stick or a big block of LEGO because I didn’t have toy guys. (My pocket money was spent on video games for the most part) I’d run around for

Gato Roboto – Review

Ever wondered what would happen if you replaced ‘Samus’ from the ‘Metroid’ series with a cat? And say this cat had access to an impressive arsenal of giant robotic mech suits and weaponry, whilst roaming an isolate space planet? Sounds insane, yet awesome, right?! Well, Devolver Digital, the studio that

Super Cane Magic ZERO – Review

When you tell people you work as a reviewer for a gaming website, they generally get very excited, “Oh, you get to play all the cool games before they’re released!” or “Oh I’ve always wanted to do that! It must be so easy!” The reality is quite different. Now don’t

Lapis X Labyrinth – Review

Lapis X Labyrinth is a side scrolling JPRPG platformer that I found myself thrown into the deep end from the get-go. The main screen doesn’t feature much except from “start new game” and some basic aesthetics and unfortunately, it doesn’t give you the option to adjust the difficulty, sound or

Heaven’s Vault – Review

A well-traveled looking woman stands in front of a mountain. The dusty plains whip sand around, blinding her vision. Still, she continues forward with her robotic sidekick following eagerly behind. After a brief climb, she exclaims: “We’ve made it”. The camera pans out to reveal a hut and a path

Observation – Review

Science fiction has always been a big part of my life. From an early age, Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back was always a favorite film. Video games have giving me the opportunity to live out situations that I’ll never be able to achieve in reality. The romance of living aboard
