‘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 […]

‘The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

I’ve been a fan of the Telltale The Walking Dead series right from the very beginning. In fact, I was a big Telltale fan. I loved many of their titles, from The Wolf Among Us to Borderlands to their Game of Thrones title, but The Walking Dead was their best work, bringing a brand new […]

‘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 […]

‘Agent A: A Puzzle In Disguise’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

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 […]

‘Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

If you’re already a fan of Susanna Clarke’s alternate history novels that began with Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, you’ll already be more than a little familiar with the concepts that she is famous for. In summary, this is a world in which magic once existed and was lost over time, but through the mysterious […]

‘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 Dark Pictures: Man of Medan’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

The Dark Pictures is a horror anthology series from the developers of Until Dawn. This anthology is supposed to have eight stand-alone stories for us to experience and each entry should come out every six months or so. The debut for this series is Man of Medan. If this debut is anything to go by…I […]

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

by Phil Wheat

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 […]

WARNING: The following review spoils the Life is Strange 2, Episode 3 ending. Let’s have a little recap on Episode 3: Wastelands ending. Daniel had a freak telekinetic outburst which injured multiple people. Once the dust had settled, the episode ended on a shot with Sean unconscious and bleeding. There was a glass shard embedded […]

‘Friday the 13th: Ultimate Slasher Edition’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Originally released in 2017, Friday the 13th: The Game was hotly anticipated by fans of the franchise and unfortunately shipped with some serious bugs and issues which marred the initial launch. Two years on and following a protracted court case, the developers have announced that no more content will be made for the game and […]

Then she decides to rebuild, bringing light and colour and music back into existence… Gris is the debut game from Barcelona-based developers Nomada Studio.

‘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 […]

‘Rogue Legacy: Wanderer Edition’ Review (iOS)

by Britt Roberts

Originally released in 2013, Rogue Legacy has made a move to iOS – iPhone and iPad – in a new “Wanderer Edition” and proves an ideal match for gaming on the move. I’m very wary of procedural generation in video games and so when games like Nongunz, Moonlighter and Rogue Legacy use it well, it […]

‘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 […]
