‘Ghost 1.0′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I want to get this straight out of the way. I am loving my time with Ghost 1.0. As a sucker for Metroidvania games, I was really excited to be given this game for a review and was pleased to see that it strikes a very delicate balance between gentle grinding, humour, sci-fi tropes and […]

‘Grave Danger’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The last time that I played a puzzle-platformer that required on-the-fly character switching to make use of their separate powers was Lost Vikings and that was many moons ago. I’ve heard of other games in a similar vein recently, such as Trine but I haven’t got around to playing them. As a relative newcomer to […]

‘Kill the Bad Guy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Kill the Bad Guy is an odd one, originally released on Steam in 2014, it appears to be one of the many thousands of games that got lost in the shuffle. Now re-released on the Nintendo Switch, I’m not sure if it will find its audience here either, as this feels a lot like a […]

‘Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Almost a dozen hours into the game, I still have no idea what the title is referring to, so I’ll have to update the review should I ever find out. What is important though, is that the praise that this game received when released originally in 2016 on the PS4 and Vita is well-deserved and, […]

‘Dream Alone’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

An interesting backstory and intriguing setup isn’t enough to halt the game play issues that come from this 2D platformer, a strange mesh of Limbo and Rick Dangerous. Dream Alone casts you in the part of a young boy, seemingly the sole survivor of his village and doomed to traipse through a dismal landscape. As […]

‘The Journey Down’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The Journey Down is a traditional graphic adventure game with the standard point and click interface but a unique setting and tone. Having been around in various forms since 2010, this final re-vamped version on the Nintendo Switch is easily the most definitive and feels right at home on the platform. The setting of The Journey […]

‘Smoke and Sacrifice’ Review (PC)

by Britt Roberts

Smoke and Sacrifice has a very intriguing premise that initially drew me in, the tale of a mother searching for her child is one that will strike a chord with many people. Whilst my journey started off with me fully invested in the narrative, after a couple of hours my will was bending, not because […]

‘The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of FMV games, Wales Interactive have released some thoroughly enjoyable games recently with The Bunker and Late Shift and I also played the mystery game Contradiction which although flawed was an enjoyable experience. With The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, despite its plus points, I found myself wearying […]

‘Operation Hardcore’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

Operation Hardcore is a chunky run-n-gun game from new developer Cosmocat which is an enjoyable and brief budget title available now from the Nintendo eShop. Originally released on Steam back in 2016, the story behind Operation Hardcore is that an alien menace has begun an assault on the world and naturally, four burly men take a […]

‘Die For Valhalla!’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Die For Valhalla! Is a 2.5D side-scrolling brawler that’s available on PC and all modern consoles (I played the Switch version for this review). The developer, Monster Couch, has managed to make a game that works both in single and multiplayer modes (up to four players locally) which is an achievement in a genre that […]

‘Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I remember when the first Shaq Fu game came out in 1994, I borrowed it from a friend, popped it into my trusty Mega Drive and sparked it up, played it for a while and then, as the Egyptian’s say, ‘turned it off’. It was a cumbersome, middling fighting game on a console that couldn’t […]

‘Ikaruga’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Originally released in Japanese arcades in 2001, Ikaruga is often seen as developer Treasure’s greatest achievement. Over the years it’s been ported to several home consoles and the newest port to the Switch in 2018 shows that in seventeen years, Ikaruga has lost none of its charm or challenge. A vertical shooter, Ikaruga has an extra layer […]

‘Hyper Sentinel’ Review (PC)

by Britt Roberts

Kim Justice has recently uploaded a very in-depth (as usual) video describing the evolution of the Uridium series, of which Hyper Sentinel can be viewed as the third entry. A Kickstarter-backed success story, Hyper Sentinel is a rootsy neo-retro shooter which gives players a pure arcade challenge with all the benefits of modern design. If […]

‘Super Chariot’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Super Chariot is a 2D puzzle-platform game that focuses on the efforts of a princess (and her prince in co-op mode) as they work their way through underground catacombs in a bid to put their deceased (and yet still very, very talkative talkative) king to rest. And so begins an odyssey of dragging around a […]

‘Raging Justice’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a thirty-four year old, I’m the perfect demographic for Raging Justice, a game that harks back to a time in the mid-90s when visuals were determined to be digitalised after pixels had ruled games for so long. Yes, visually Raging Justice has more in common with Batman Forever, Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat than […]

‘Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is a single-player game bereft of enemies or indeed any sort of combat. The gameplay is essentially a series of fetch and crafting quests, (which is admittedly something that can be levelled at quite a lot of other titles that DO have combat as part of their make-up) but what […]

‘Death Road to Canada’ Review (NIntendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Chiptune surf rock greets you into the world of Death Road to Canada, and yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds (I still maintain that the Surf Coasters music for the Runabout series is one of the best in gaming, if only they’d tour in the UK…and release records on vinyl!). The game sees you […]

‘Suicide Guy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a fan of the Mr Karoshi games, I was very much looking forward to playing Suicide Guy as it read as a 3D version of my much-loved Mr Karoshi series, however it unfortunately has more in common with Hello Neighbor in it’s visuals and gameplay and it’s these issues that took the enjoyment out […]
