‘Ritual: Crown of Horns’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Daniel Goodchild, an American legend and bounty hunter has been sent by his own government to hunt down and kill a suspected witch in cowboy-era U.S.A. Upon arriving at the witch’s home, he is attacked by a throng of antler-sporting cultists and, despite putting up a brave fight he is killed faster than Steven Seagal […]

‘Zombieland: Double-Tap – Road Trip’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a fan of twin-stick shooters, my love for the genre as a whole was the only thing that kept me invested to the end of this rushed and mercifully (yet, for the price, unjustly) brief cash-in. There’s nothing wrong with a generic film tie-in for fans to tuck into, it’s a tale as old […]

‘Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

The fourth in Frozenbyte’s now decade-old Trine series shows that refining something can be just as enduring as re-inventing it. Some minor issues aside, Trine 4 is a triumph in the platform-puzzle genre and, should it be the last in the series, a hell of a way to go out. Moving away from Trine 3’s […]

‘Little Town Hero’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Game Freak seem to be taking some flak for moving away from the Pokemon franchise, which they have been synonymous with for quite some time. In truth, Little Town Hero doesn’t deviate too far from the card-battling formula. With a surprisingly in-depth battle system and being set in a quaint, odd little village, it may […]

‘Valfaris’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Although I’m not an ardent fan of the genre (my personal tastes lean more towards prog-Rock that an all-out metal), games that focus heavily on the genre of metal can be very cool. From the cult classic Brütal Legend to the more recent Double Kick Heroes, sometimes the gameplay shines through and, with tongue firmly […]

‘Nobodies’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Britt Roberts

An Argentinian title which sets you in the blood-flecked shoes of the ‘cleaner’ for a shady government organisation, Nobodies takes a more casual approach, reminiscent of hidden object games more than graphic adventures but comes out a strong and enjoyable title with an interesting premise that gives it more character than similar games. Presented through […]

‘AeternoBlade 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A 2.5D hack and slash game with some really nice ideas, AeternoBlade 2 starts off relatively strong, if scrappy and flawed. Fast-forward a few hours, however and the bugs, odd design choices and glitches become harder to ignore, eventually reaching a point rendering the game unplayable. Carrying on seemingly straight after the first game in […]

‘BurgerTime Party!’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A fun little game that is best played with friends in a ‘dip in and out’ way, if you are a fan of the original BurgerTime (Data East, 1982), this literally plays like a remastered version with multiplayer added. Good. For those not familiar with this niche food-related genre of gaming, the main gameplay loop […]

‘Mutazione’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A pleasant, narrative-driven adventure with strong audio work, Mutazione is a wonderful world well worth visiting… Kai is a teenager from a fractured but loving background, with the tables turned in their relationship, Kai is the one that looks after her mother until she is asked by her grandfather to visit him on his island […]

‘The Surge 2′ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

Having never played the original The Surge and, upon reading into it, finding out that it was dismissed by some as a Dark Souls clone, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this sequel. After spending several hours with The Surge 2 I was surprised to find that, whilst it does come from that […]

‘Castle Crashers Remastered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Castle Crashers holds a special place in my heart, released pretty much a decade ago when local co-op was begging for rocks to eat whilst wearing nothing but a skirt fashioned out of crudely sewn-together crisp-packets and shoes make from cereal boxed wrapped in parcel tape, it was a dark time indeed for those of […]

‘Devil May Cry 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The only game in the Devil May Cry series that I’ve played was the relatively recent reboot, with the original four games completely passing me by (they were released during a time I did hardly any gaming. What dark days they were) and so it was with no expectations that I went into this recent […]

‘Deadly Premonition: Origins’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A wonderfully bonkers and yet flawed title from 2010 sees release on the Nintendo Switch. Whilst technically unimpressive, the game draws you in almost on sheer curiosity alone with its premise and execution. In my eyes definitely deserves the cult classic title it holds in the industry. I do have a personal history with Deadly […]

‘Creature in the Well’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A quite unique blend of dungeon-crawling and pinball, Flight School Studio has created a stunning blend of genres that works so well that I’d be more than happy to see it become the grandfather of a niche sub-genre pop up for us all to enjoy. You play as the last remaining BOT-C unit, your quest […]

‘The Long Journey Home’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A space adventure with a focus on crew and fuel / resource management, The Long Journey Home is an interesting and detailed title but seems to focus on the more mundane aspects of itself which makes the exploration of space more of a chore than it perhaps should be. Beginning with your crew selection, The Long […]

‘AER: Memories of Old’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A ‘relaxation game’ with more game play than I usually see in the genre, AER: Memories of Old plays out as almost a gentle tutorial into the world of 3D platform games. The bird-transformation mechanic and sense of openness that it gives however, is really saucy. Sent out on a mission to the lost land […]

Interview: ‘Streets of Rogue’ developer Matt Dabrowski

by Britt Roberts

So our readers can get to know you, can you describe how you got into game development and perhaps some titles and consoles / computers that were seminal for you, personally? I got into game development when I was about 8 years old. I saw an ad for a program called “Game-Maker” (not that Game […]

‘Friday the 13th: Ultimate Slasher Edition’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Originally released in 2017, Friday the 13th: The Game was hotly anticipated by fans of the franchise and unfortunately shipped with some serious bugs and issues which marred the initial launch. Two years on and following a protracted court case, the developers have announced that no more content will be made for the game and […]
