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

Super Mario 3D All-Stars – Review

39 years. That is how old our favourite overall wearing, princess simping, plumber is. Mario, for people my age, is history. He is a marker for moments in our lives, a historical footprint. I remember Saturday mornings playing 64 with him as a kid and afternoons after work relaxing 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

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

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

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout – Review

Some of these battle royale style games can be a real hit and miss; some may be strangely addictive, where the hours just fly by, others can feel like you are just dragging your feet through a repetition of party style games, all of which start to feel oddly similar
