‘Robbie Swifthand & the Orb of Mysteries’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A trial and error / purposefully tough platformer that manages to poke its head above the crowd due to having design features don’t alienate anyone with the only downside being some frame-rate issues which can be problematic in this genre, where so much is based on careful timing. Two terms in the gaming world that […]

‘Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The third title in the long-running Medieval-ish Trine series sees the game make the transition from 2D to 3D, a bold leap that it tackles with grace, resulting in a game that reminded me somewhat of the time I spent with Mario Odyssey last year. This is a good thing. For those unfamiliar with the […]

‘The Drama Queen Murder’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As this was the first hidden object game I’d played on Switch (it’s a genre I often play to wind down with my partner on PC) I was quite looking forward to lounging on the couch and getting some pretty casual gaming done. Alas, The Drama Queen Murder turned out to be a difficult one […]

‘Captain Cat’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

Having not been playing Nintendo Switch for too long, I’m surprised at just how deep their library of games is. The sheer amount of fun, unusual and affordable titles on the eShop is great, and Captain Cat, a nice pick-up-and-play title from Digital Tentacle and Hidden Trap Team, is a good example of a fun, […]

‘Archlion Saga’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Originally released as a mobile title, Archlion Saga bills itself as an easily completable JRPG (within 2-4 hours) for people who don’t have the time to dig into a full-length romp. Whilst the idea is admirable, in action it would probably only appeal to absolute, young newcomers (although the game is strangely rated ‘12’, and […]

‘Blazing Chrome’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

It’s safe to say that growing up side-scrolling game were my gaming bread and butter. Platformers like the Super Mario series on the NES, the Dizzy games on the C64; side-scrolling beat em-ups ike Double Dragon, Rygar and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES and later on 16-bit games like Final Fight and Golden […]

‘A.O.T 2: Final Battle’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

Based on the Manga series of the same name, A.O.T 2 (Attack on Titan 2) is a revisiting and expansion of the world discovered in the first game that offers a lot to fans of the show but also completely grabbed me as a total newcomer with its surprisingly engaging story, addictive gameplay and, of […]

‘Streets of Rogue’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a fellow local co-op loving friend, lamenting the lack of multiplayer games that have a more ‘progress-based’ bent as opposed to pure blasts of arcade action such as (the very good) Iron Crypticle and the like. As if in answer to our prayers, Streets of […]

‘Warlocks 2: God Slayers’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A humorous 2D action / RPG hybrid that has all the trappings of an online game but alas, currently has no online capability.. Warlocks 2 begins with your chosen warlock (there are five available) getting rescued from a cage in quite a funny introduction sequence. Following this, you get a brief tutorial of the unlockable […]

‘Queen’s Quest 3: The End of Dawn’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I’ve been an Artifex Mundi fan for a while. Their point-and-click adventure games have been on my radar since I played Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek on PS4 a couple of years ago. I’ve since gone on to play a bunch of their titles with stories ranging from gothic fables to pirate folklore to […]

‘Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-stered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

It was hardly a vintage year, but 2009 did bring us a few classics: Minecraft, Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, Red Faction Guerrilla… Wait, what? That’s right, THQ Nordic have just updated the third and best of the bonkers third-person shooter/smasher series and, following the 2018 release of the remaster on the PS4 and Xbox One, […]

‘Crystal Crisis’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Crystal Crisis is a cute and chaotic new color-matching combat game presented like a one-on-one fighting game, but instead of pressing buttons to kick and punch, players arrange falling gems into matching colors to clear them from the screen and inflict damage on their opponents. Yes, this is Nicalis’ version of Super Puzzle Fighter II […]

‘The Sinking City’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

Lovecraftian video games based on the mythology of Cthulhu aren’t anything new, with the concept finding it’s way into our video games market with the likes of Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Saves the World, among many others, some very well received, others not so much. It’s at the same time intriguing, especially if you’re […]

‘Baobabs Mausoleum Ep. 2: 1313 Barnabas Dead End Drive’ Review (Switch)

Claiming to be a mash-up of Monkey island, Zelda, Twin Peaks and Spongebob Squarepants is a heckuva claim to make and yet that is what Celery Emblem have done with this, the 2019 Switch port of their catchily-titled game which was originally released on Steam back in February 2018.
