First Impressions – ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I’m pretty new to the Animal Crossing universe, having only played a little itty bit of New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS prior to the new release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Switch. Still… I’ve been very excited for this release, and I picked up a copy the day it came out and […]

‘Jump, Step, Step’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

From developer Phung Games and games publisher Hidden Trap comes Jump, Step, Step, a new puzzle title for the Nintendo Switch. This game, selling at a slender £4.49, could be a little something different for puzzle nerds who might be interested in an old-school isometric brain-twister, but sadly Jump, Step, Step fails to take its intriguing […]

‘Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

I am rubbish at “bullet hell” shooters. There are two main reasons for this, the first is, despite playing video games for over 30 years, I am not very good at video games. This has been masked somewhat by the fact that modern games are far easier than the games of my childhood. The second […]

I didn’t know anything about Umaiki Games’ Skellboy when I had a chance to play it recently. A super colourful throwback action-RPG with beautifully whimsical and charming pixelated visuals, it plays smoothly and has a whole bunch weird and wonderful things going for it. So, let’s talk about it a bit. You rise from the […]

‘Jets ‘n’ Guns’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Could a title be more simpler than Jets ‘n’ Guns? I mean, to quote that famous advert, it does exactly what it says on the tin. This is a game about flying a jet and shooting its guns at the enemies. Only Jets ‘n’ Guns is actually a little more nuanced than that. Yes, the basic […]

‘Chaos on Deponia’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

I am a 30 something (pushing 40 something) who owned an Amiga and wasn’t allowed to own a games console back when the Amiga was a thing. The Amiga was a brilliant machine, with terrible anti-piracy protection, but to be fair the state of the games on those floppy disks was so poor you genuinely […]

‘Simulacra’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Whilst we’ve reviewed a number of Wales Interactive’s FMV releases, this is actually the first time I’ve played one of their games for myself. You see, I felt out of love with this particular sub-genre of video gaming some years ago and have only just got back into playing this style of game thanks to […]

‘Alien: Isolation’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

When Alien: Isolation was originally release, hot on the heels of the much-derided Alien: Colonial Marines, not much was expected of the game. However something happened… the hands-on previews and reviews came out and the game was getting positive feedback. In fact the game was so well received that now, some 5 years later, Sega and […]

‘Bloo Kid 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

It should be obvious by now that, through the Nindies, the Switch has become THE home for retro-styled indie games. Games like The Messenger, an amazing homage to Ninja Gaiden; the amazing Venture Kid, a wonderful homage to the games that I truly loved on the NES like Adventure Island, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers […]

‘Sea Salt’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Guest

Review by H.P Lovecraft super-fan Lee Manuel. Most games based on H.P Lovecraft concentrate mainly on Cthulhu, casting you, the player, as the plucky hero attempting to save the world from unnameable cosmic horrors and cults, while gamely trying to hold on to your sanity. Sea Salt is a different beast for a couple of […]
