An 80’s-tastic mash-up involving the impossible time-management of Papers, Please mixed with the procedural stiffness of Sierra’s classic Police Quest, Beat Cop is a mobile port that raises above the chaff and fits well on home consoles with its retro aesthetic and hectic gameplay.

‘The Messenger’ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

The debut game from Sabotage Studios, which was founded in 2016, is a decent enough hardcore platformer. It has great heart and a handful of neat ideas, but a myriad of niggles – not to mention a catastrophic late-game shift in gameplay – hold it back from sharing the pixel art pantheon with the likes […]

‘Gigantic Army’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A game that reveres the titles it takes gameplay cues from but due to several conflicting design choices as well as a control scheme that lacks response, never feels satisfying to play. It was only a few years ago that a friend introduced me to Cybernator on the SNES, although I have payed mech games […]

I watched the trailer for Alvastia Chronicles and was looking forward to reviewing it not only because it seemed like a safe, old-fashioned 8-bit JRPG I could play on the Switch… but because the main character, this unknown hero from an alternate fantasy landscape… was called Alan. That was what drew me to it. I’ll […]

‘Ghoulboy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Released on Steam in 2017 and now ported to Nintendo Switch, Ghoulboy is a straightforward action-platformer that captures the retro pixel aesthetic well but is a bit too rough around the edges to be an essential purchase although lovers of old-school straightforward platform games will find something to enjoy, just don’t expect the mould to […]
