‘Rampage Knights’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The Switch has seen a fair few multiplayer side-scrolling brawlers over the last couple of years, some of which were ported across from the PC and the light usage of procedural generation used in such games as Streets of Red add a frisson of variety to the proceedings which make playthroughs slightly different each time.

by Britt Roberts

A simulation game based on numbers that’s set in a Lovecraftian landscape, The Shrouded Isle is a well-designed title rich in ambience and with a desert-dry sense of wry humour but the mileage gained from it will depend on the players’ level of fascination with gauge-juggling. The game casts you in the role of the […]
