‘Stone Age’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

Whilst games based on what is called “worker placement” are fairly common, “worker retrieval” games are much harder to come by. The subject of this review; Stone Age, dates back to 2008 and is probably the earliest example of a worker retrieval game that I can find. Essentially this is a game in which players […]

Moving on from their previous game, Punch Club which was an enjoyable (for a while, until you ground your teeth into dust) 16-bit styled stat-balancing grind-a-thon set in the world of prize-fighting, Lazy Bear Games have come up with a new game that takes a lot of inspiration from Stardew Valley but adds enough of […]

‘Bud Spencer & Terence Hill: Slaps And Beans’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

What year is this? Because I’m currently sat here playing a side-scrolling 16-bit style beat ‘em-up featuring the legendary Italian filmmaking duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill… Are we sure this is 2018?

‘The Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

When I think about nuclear war (or at least the threat of it) in board games, the first examples that spring to mind are usually related to The Cold War, including Twilight Struggle and the like. Coming in to Minion Games’ The Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight and having never played the original, I […]

‘Megaton Rainfall’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Originally conceived as a VR experience on the PS4 and now ported to the Nintendo Switch, Megaton Rainfall is an amazing showcase for the developer’s clear talents but I did come away from the game feeling more impressed than sated.

‘Okami HD’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

It feels like Okami hasn’t been so much released as gradually rolled out since its launch on PlayStation 2 in 2006. The Wii version followed a few months later; then the HD update came to last-gen consoles and PC; current-gen consoles last year; and now it has finally made its way to Nintendo Switch. The […]
