‘Zotrix Starglider’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

I have been an avid gamer for pretty much as long as I can remember. My first console the ZX Spectrum, the loading noises I remember almost as much as the games, and from then on it has almost entirely (the odd Sega Master System and Playstation an exception) been Nintendo. But it’s perhaps apt […]

‘Going Under’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

I’m not normally a fan of rogue-likes, dungeon crawlers, or any kind of RPG-esque video games. I equate game like that to spending hours and hours grinding, leveling up, crafting weapons etc., and I just don’t have the patience. But, given that reviewers should be open-minded when it comes to covering different titles that are […]

‘The Takeover’ Review (Nintendo Switch)
