The Little Acre (PS4) Review

Pewter Game’s The Little Acre is an adorable slice of adventuring that effortlessly blends Broken Sword with Don Bluth in a game that fans of old school point and clicks will be hard pressed not to fall in love with. Set in contemporary County Mayo Ireland in the 1950s, the Little Acre tells the Story…

In order to save your ol’ pa players must risk virtual life and limb guiding Bess through a mysterious virtual fortress chock full of puzzles. While exploring the fortress, players flit between point and…

The Assembly (PSVR) Review – Worse for Wear

As another first-person puzzle game set in a mysterious lab complex, The Assembly doesn’t stand out all that much. The puzzles are ok, the narrative ticks along nicely and it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. It’s just not particularly memorable. However, as a launch title for PSVR one needs to consider whether the game benefits from…

LASTFIGHT (PS4) Review – Cubic Zirconia

Anyone who has ever played Power Stone, wants one thing, Capcom to make another Power Stone.  The short-lived series for SEGAs Ill-fated Dreamcast, is easily one of the finest arena fighting games ever made. However, with SEGA long out of the console game and Capcom abandoning the series over a decade ago fans of the…

Tethered (PSVR) Review – String Theory

The launch line up for Sony’s PlayStation VR has been incredibly strong and diverse, with arguably a better line up of available games than many console launches. Among these initial titles is Secret Sorcery’s Tethered, a god game set in a fantasy world full of cute creatures for you to lord it over that’s best…

Super Dungeon Bros (PS4) Review – Party On!

Super Dungeon Bros. should be my kind of game; a colourful, metal-themed Dungeon Crawler with bags of personality. However, control issues, a lack of checkpoints, and severe difficulty spikes mare what could have otherwise been an excellent adventure. After a brief opening video that introduces players to the Bros, four colourful knights named after famous…

Pixel Gear (PSVR) Review – Block Party

Pixel Gear is another one of those PSVR games that came out of nowhere. An arcade shooter with Minecraft style graphics, that like Ace Banana feels more like proof of concept, than a fully fledged game. Although I did enjoy my time with Pixel Gear, it’s worth bearing in mind that there’s not a whole…

Ace Banana (PSVR) Review – Bananarama

As is often the case with launch titles, some are great, others may as well be tech demos. But with Sonys PSVR I think calling some of the titles experiments would be far more apt, they’re barely games, they have some value, but they’re not going to hold your attention for very long Oasis Games’…

Overcooked!: The Lost Morsel DLC (PS4) Review: Waffer Thin Mint

I LOVED Overcooked! Easy to pick up, slightly more challenging to master (original review can be found here). The Lost Morsel DLC adds six new levels to the local co-op cook-‘em-up on a new self-contained island. That our master chefs find themselves on because of a time travel malfunction. Obviously. Six extra levels doesn’t sound…

Jazzpunk: Director’s Cut (PS4) Review – Bat**** Country

Jazzpunk is a first-person adventure game from Necrophone Games, in which you play as Polybank (a silent protagonist), working as a spy in a fictionalised 1950’s world. It is also completely, marvellously, absurd. It feels like being inside Vic and Bob’s head while they are on a particularly intense acid trip. In a good way.…

Harmonix VR (PSVR) Review – Tune in, Drop Out

The first thing to note about Harmonix VR, is that it sin’t a game. If you;re expectinv some kind of VR based rhythum game, you’re going to be sorely disssapointed. (I’d reccomend checking out the latest re-release of REZ). Harmonix VR is basically a way to get people to sit back, relax and spend a…

Mantis Burn Racing (PS4) Review – Compact Carburettas

Mantis Burn Racing is the first game from VooFoo Studios not set in a Pub. After the fantastic Hustle Kings and Pure Pool the studio synonymous with snooker have decided to have a crack at another oft over looked genre, the top down-arcade racer. With a decent Micro Machines reboot nowhere in sight, Voofoo have…

Paper Mario: Color Splash Review – Happy Accidents

Ask any Paper Mario fan which entry is the best in the series, and most will say the game Cube Classic Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door. I hate to disappoint, but Paper Mario: Colour Splash is not as good as Thousand Year Door, BUT it is still an incredibly endearing game and worth your time…
