‘The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I grew up as a Sega kid, but always loved playing the Nintendo first-party original titles, and when I got a Gameboy at the end of the 80s I was immediately hooked. The Legend of Zelda is one of those Nintendo titles that just screams quality and has since 1987 when the very first Zelda […]

‘BurgerTime Party!’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A fun little game that is best played with friends in a ‘dip in and out’ way, if you are a fan of the original BurgerTime (Data East, 1982), this literally plays like a remastered version with multiplayer added. Good. For those not familiar with this niche food-related genre of gaming, the main gameplay loop […]

‘Diablo 3′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

The PC / video games market is a strange beast. Once a game is released with huge fanfare, it immediately withers on the vine and as the lustre of those shiny treats dims, we can see significant price cuts after only a week or so on the market. There is always something new, something that […]

A pleasant, narrative-driven adventure with strong audio work, Mutazione is a wonderful world well worth visiting… Kai is a teenager from a fractured but loving background, with the tables turned in their relationship, Kai is the one that looks after her mother until she is asked by her grandfather to visit him on his island […]

‘Castle Crashers Remastered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Castle Crashers holds a special place in my heart, released pretty much a decade ago when local co-op was begging for rocks to eat whilst wearing nothing but a skirt fashioned out of crudely sewn-together crisp-packets and shoes make from cereal boxed wrapped in parcel tape, it was a dark time indeed for those of […]

In DIGITAL SHORTS we review some of the latest video games that are only available digitally (at least in the UK), in a short-form review format.

‘Devil May Cry 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The only game in the Devil May Cry series that I’ve played was the relatively recent reboot, with the original four games completely passing me by (they were released during a time I did hardly any gaming. What dark days they were) and so it was with no expectations that I went into this recent […]

‘Deadly Premonition: Origins’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A wonderfully bonkers and yet flawed title from 2010 sees release on the Nintendo Switch. Whilst technically unimpressive, the game draws you in almost on sheer curiosity alone with its premise and execution. In my eyes definitely deserves the cult classic title it holds in the industry. I do have a personal history with Deadly […]

‘Bear With Me: The Lost Robots’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I’m a longtime fan of point-and-click adventure games. I remember spending hours with titles like Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. I think the genre, though not as popular as it perhaps once was, can be absolutely awesome and a lot of fun. A sure-fire change of pace from the intense and full-on video […]

‘Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

Secret Files 2 was released about ten years ago, and this port of that game is very much the same game we got back in 2009, albeit with a few little improvements. It sure does feel like you just popped your PS2 on to play it though, feeling dated and tired as you make your […]

by Chris Cummings

So, Agent A: A Puzzle In Disguise was initially released as a mobile game back in 2015. An episodic puzzle-game, its been ported over to the Nintendo Switch on a release that allows you a chance to play all of those episodes. A game that is a visual homage to spy films from the 60s […]

‘Creature in the Well’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A quite unique blend of dungeon-crawling and pinball, Flight School Studio has created a stunning blend of genres that works so well that I’d be more than happy to see it become the grandfather of a niche sub-genre pop up for us all to enjoy. You play as the last remaining BOT-C unit, your quest […]

‘The Long Journey Home’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A space adventure with a focus on crew and fuel / resource management, The Long Journey Home is an interesting and detailed title but seems to focus on the more mundane aspects of itself which makes the exploration of space more of a chore than it perhaps should be. Beginning with your crew selection, The Long […]

‘AER: Memories of Old’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A ‘relaxation game’ with more game play than I usually see in the genre, AER: Memories of Old plays out as almost a gentle tutorial into the world of 3D platform games. The bird-transformation mechanic and sense of openness that it gives however, is really saucy. Sent out on a mission to the lost land […]

‘The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

I absolutely ADORE side-scrolling beat ‘em-ups. Like REALLY love them. Really. Which is why I’ve got tons of the ACA Neo Geo/Arcade titles on my Switch, alongside the Capcom Beat ‘Em-Up collection plus a whole heap more titles on the PS4. It’s one genre that I love and one genre that had, until this current […]

‘Taimumari’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Originally released on PC in 2015, Taimumari is a 2D platform game that has finally made it’s way to Nintendo Switch and does have some nice moments but the focus on replay and difficulty over progression and variety may alienate some players. You play the role of Himari, a young wizard who travels across timelines […]
