The Church In The Darkness – Review

The Church in the Darkness is set in the late 1970’s, with you taking on the role of Vic, an ex-law enforcement officer, whose nephew Alex has joined a religious cult run by Isaac and Rebecca Walker, leaders of ‘The Collective Justice Mission’. Labelled as radicals by the US government,

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

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

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

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

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

Sigma Theory: Global Cold War – Review

War games are a dime a dozen these days. With the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield spinning out a sequel or a spinoff almost yearly, it can sometimes leave the category feeling a bit overdone and stale. Thankfully, the creative minds of Goblinz Studio & Mi-Clos Studio have

Katana ZERO – Review

Arguably one of the most addictive indie action games I’ve ever played. EVER! It brings me such excitement to present to you the newly released indie game ‘Katana ZERO’ Akiisoft have absolutely captured the hack-n-slash, side scrolling, action platformer aspect to a T. Katana Zero is addictive, it’s colourful and it creates its own twist on the genre that gives it its own personality.

Skorecery – Review

Skorecery is not a game where you can spend endless hours getting engrossed into an awesome story line with great cinematic enjoyment. Instead, this game has you duelling it out with your friends to see who is the greatest of all with this fast-paced game.

Etherborn – Preview

It really brings me such joy to see, play and review (or in this case preview) indie games that have such heart and soul in their development. You can really feel that each moment and movement has been undertaken with deep creative love and passion, making the experience just that

Battlloon – Review

Battlloon is one of the many, many indie games that have made their way on to the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo switch, while still only getting stronger and seemingly holding its own in the console world, has become one of the platforms of choice for independent developers. attlloon is very

Yiik: A Postmodern RPG – Review

This is a very different RPG, when compared to others in the genre, this isn’t set in a fantasy world, nor in a post apocalyptic world, this my friends is in the modern world, hence the title of the game. Yiik: A Postmodern RPG is a single player game playable
