RUINER – Review

Ruiner, by Reikon Games and my favourite violent and quirky studio; Devolver Digital, is one of the best games I have played on the Nintendo Switch this year. Period. Initially released back in 2017, on PC, this Bladerunner fantasy I missed out on then, but heard so much about from

Fly Punch Boom! – Review

Fly. Punch. Boom. The title says it all. Get ready to “Fly” around a colourful and interactive arena while you “Punch” your pals and then “Boom”- it’s Game Over. Fly Punch Boom gives you all the feeling of an epic anime fighter- however instead of skill, victory is decided by

Ion Fury – Review

Being a bit of an older gamer, I was around when first person shooters started making their way onto computers. The likes of Duke Nukem 3D, the very first DOOM title, Wolfenstein 3D, and my personal favourite, Redneck Rampage. These were the games that every aspiring gamer had in their

Fledgling Heroes – Review

At first glance, “Fledgling Heroes” developed and published by Subtle Boom, looks like a game solely for kids and honestly, from the moment you boot it up it really does give off that air, dare I say it, pungent aroma of child mobile game. Once you delve in though, while

7th Sector – Review

With Cyberpunk delayed till later in 2020, how, oh how was I going to get my futuristic fix? Now, while ‘7th Sector’ by Носков Сергей isn’t the RPG I am frothing to get my hands on, this side scroller puzzler, now available on console from Steam, will certainly slay that
