Race With Ryan – Review

I would like to firstly illiterate, this is very much a kid’s game, and while I wasn’t stoked to review it, I will look at it through that lense because I can’t imagine any grown arse adult wanting to own this. ‘Race with Ryan’ is just like the title suggests,

Duped’, an indie game created by Reuben Moorhouse, that was released on steam back in 2017, and is now available on the Nintendo Switch 2 years later, is a very intriguing puzzle game. Duped is the story of the life of a lonely square. It’s not just a plain cube

Day And Night – Review

‘Day and Night’ is an ode to Tetris you’d never expect. This little nifty indie game developed by Ridiculous Games, is at its core, a Tetris game for the Nintendo Switch, but with so much more. A puzzle game, it makes you keep playing more and more with its addictive

8

Family Tree – Review

I love coming across a little gem, something I judged at first glance, that turns out to be more than the cover portrays. Looks really can be deceiving and ‘Family Tree’ by Infinite State Games, on Nintendo Switch, is certainly that, deceiving and highly addictive. You are introduced to our

Indivisible – Review

505 Games S.p.A. is an Italian video game publisher based in Milan. It was founded in 2006 as a subsidiary of Digital Bros. and are behind games as Sniper Elite 2 and Payday 2, both of which are enjoyable games to play. As this game was handed to me to

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;

FIFA 20 – Review

Every year, year on year, there is always that list of things you can count on to return. Christmas time, Tax time, the dreaded flu season and of course the flurry of sports games on our consoles and computers. Of course, there are those FPS games too, but they do

7

NBA2K20 – Review

It is no secret that I am not a fan of sporting games. I still maintain that if you want to play basketball, soccer, hockey or anything else that I have yet to mention, that you go out and actually play the real sport. Now, I understand that only a

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

RAD – Review

What is with the flood of 80’s inspired games as of late? I have literally reviewed like nine or ten in the last 6 months and it seems like the fad is not dying soon. It seems with the success of television shows in the likes of Stranger Things it

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Review

I have never been a strategy, turn based game player. They require patience, thought-out movement and finesse. All attributes, I definitely do not possess, believe me, ask my colleagues. I loathed my last experience with one and that is no exaggeration. I’ve avoided them since. Mutant Year Zero: Road to

Dragon Quest Builders 2 – Review

I never really understood the fad that was Minecraft. I mean, sure… digging stuff up, building things and wacking enemies with a wooden sword was kind of fun. While there are some incredible creations out there, there is really only so much you can do. Mine, build, kill and survive.

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

7

Wolfenstein: Youngblood – Review

Wolfenstein: YoungBlood appears to sit comfortably right at home, warm and familiar, but in the same sense feels distant and cold, almost enstranged. This game has the internet divided at the moment, people generally don’t adjust well to change but how much change is justifiable? And is it innovative change?

9

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
