‘Mantis Burn Racing’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

When I first heard about Mantis Burn Racing and saw it was a top-down racer my thoughts went back to the old racers, like Super Off Road, Pole Position, et al. many of which had a fixed camera, and how much I disliked that style. Thankfully while that is one camera option for this game, […]

‘L.A. Noire’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

It’s unfortunate, really, that games like L.A. Noire come around so infrequently, considering how well received they tend to be when they do. What kind of game am I talking about? Smart, cerebral games that force the player not to think; not just about individual puzzles, but also about the bigger picture. L.A. Noire offers a very […]

‘Tallowmere’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

As many have said before, the sheer number of indie games that have made their way onto the Nintendo Switch is simply astonishingly and at the same time, hugely promising.

‘Heroes of the Monkey Tavern’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

What will gradually dawn on you about Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is what it doesn’t contain. No item wear; no exterior environments (in fact, very little variation in environments at all); no ammo counters; no gameplay variation; and no real story to speak of. It opens with a static painting of the titular tavern. […]
