‘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 […]

‘Vampyr’ Review (Playstation 4)

by Paul Metcalf

Life as a vampire in London 1918 isn’t an easy job to undertake, especially when you are a surgeon. With the streets full of vampire hunters and even the odd werewolf, you are in control of just how chaotic the streets are. So what will you do in Vampyr, feed off the innocent to get […]

‘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 […]

‘Payday 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

I was so looking forward to playing Payday 2 on the Nintendo Switch, I really was. For one, I’d bought the game a few years back on the PS3 but my the laser died and wouldn’t read discs anymore so I never got to play past the first mission… So given that this was a […]

‘Conan Exiles’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

When I first played Conan Exiles it was to preview the Early Access. Now that it has been officially released, I decided to play it on the Xbox One X. The main aim was to see just how the game had changed, and of course how it shapes up against the PC version. Looking at […]

‘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 […]

‘The Council: Episode 2 – Hide and Seek’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

In the first episode of The Council we were introduced to the way that the new adventure game worked. Based on an RPG style system, many actions were dependant on having abilities that were earned in a skills tree. With a game also full of historical characters, may who couldn’t be trusted, interactions with them […]

‘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 […]

‘Garage’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

From the TinyBuild stable comes Garage, a VHS-filtered, top-down shooter-cum-survival-horror developed by Russian outfit Zombie Dynamics. It sounds great on paper, but a multitude of issues prevent it from matching the games that clearly inspired it. You play Butch, a very butch janitor. You awaken in an underground garage to find that everything wants to […]

‘DragoDino’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

DragoDino is a vertical platformer that wows you with its vibrancy, jaunty music and characters but has a few issues under the bonnet that detract from the game reaching its full potential. The game play in DragoDino is simple, you are trying to regain your precious egg from the top of a tree and spend […]
