‘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. For indie developers, the commonly used NVidia architecture of the Switch makes converting existing games an absolute doddle, which is exactly the case for Tallowmere, an […]

‘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. […]

‘Rogue Trooper Redux’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Originally released in 2006 and earning two BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story, Rogue Trooper was one of the undiscovered gems of the PS2 – and for those gamers that played it, it still remains one of the best comic book, nay licensed, games on Sony’s console EVER. Technically (literally, from a technological […]

‘Cat Quest’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing that will get people’s attention on the Iinternet it’s cute cats. This is why when I loaded up Cat Quest I was a little worried about what I would find. To my surprise what I was presented with was a game that has the right level of nostalgia, and as […]

‘Perception’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

If you’ve played the Outcast or Amnesia games then you’ll know all too well the experience of running through corridors escaping an unknown entity. Perception is a similar game, but to complicate things it removes your vision, and pushes you into the world of the unknown. In Perception, you play the role of Cassie, a […]

‘Super Mario Odyssey’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

Who’d have thought it? Barely eight months since Breath of the Wild brought us the first game of the year contender, Nintendo has gone and done it again. After the supremely taut, linear design of Super Mario 3D World on Wii U, and the semi-linear lines of the Galaxy (Wii) games, Super Mario Odyssey represents […]

Back in the era of the SNES and Neo Geo you couldn’t move for such games, but with the advent of 3D graphics these types of games […]
