Rob Kershaw's Reviews

Co-founder of Jump Dash Roll. I've been gaming since the days of the Amstrad. Huge RPG fan. Planescape: Torment tops my list, but if a game tells a good story, I'm interested. Absolutely not a fanboy of any specific platform - the proof is in the gaming pudding.

A gentle, immensely silly romp through an Agatha Christie style whodunnit. Lord Winklebottom is a promising debut from a talented indie studio.

A few good scares and some excellent psychological horror aren't enough to fully raise this anthology from the dead.

Crowns and Pawns brings both freshness and familiarity to the point-and-click genre. It may be brief, but quality voice acting and fun puzzles keep momentum going until the very end.‍

6 / 10 - Chernobylite
Apr 20, 2022

Chernobylite has a lot of interesting concepts but it doesn't manage to form them into a cohesive whole. Patient players may get something out of it, but be prepared for a slog.

9 / 10 - Tunic
Mar 30, 2022

If you're looking for an isometric RPG with a nostalgic aesthetic and Souls trimmings, Tunic is it: a tough, beautiful action-adventure which rewards the patient and batters the reckless.

Walking simulator fans and those who enjoy an intriguing supernatural mystery will lap up Ghost on the Shore. Performance issues and a strict adherence to the genre will turn the rest away.

When Horizon Forbidden West lets you enjoy its incredible open world in peace, Aloy's second outing is a marvel to play, even if its swollen map doesn't fully make up for a lack of true invention.

5 / 10 - Firework
Jan 18, 2022

Firework's initially creepy premise and relatively engaging puzzles soon give way to a confusing plot that suffers from poor localisation.

A stellar slice of indie goodness whose frenetic and precise fighting elevates it above the pack, while highlighting an important chapter in Taiwanese history.

6 / 10 - Eastward
Jan 4, 2022

Under Eastward's glossy and well-designed exterior, there's a confusing and overlong story that never really satisfies.

7 / 10 - Scarf
Dec 20, 2021

Scarf doesn't brave new platforming territory, but platforming newbies will appreciate its forgiving nature, and it tells an interesting and often dark story in an engaging way.

Growbot is a charming puzzle adventure with a lot of heart, wrapped in a fantastically illustrated environment.

Party Pack 8 is varied, accessible and fun. It might not be the best compendium in the series, but the likes of Job Job, Drawful Animate and Poll Mine will ensure that it's high in your consideration for a night of party games.

True Colors is by far the best entry in Life Is Strange to date. Pulling the focus away from powers and onto relationships allows the story to grow naturally, and beautifully, without losing the essence of what makes the series great.

Equal parts captivating and chill, Echo of Starsong is a wonderful hybrid of visual novel and adventure underpinned by a remarkably human story.

6 / 10 - Vesper
Sep 2, 2021

Gorgeous visuals can't mask the emptiness of Vesper's levels or the perfunctory nature of its platforming.

Lacuna is a slick noir adventure debut handled remarkably well by a tiny indie team.

If you're looking to improve your typing and can forgive some minor grievances, Nanotale wraps up your keyboard in a light, but often engaging RPG.

7 / 10 - Voyage
Mar 10, 2021

Voyage is a short and simple cinematic game wrapped up in enthralling visuals, best played with a friend, a controller, and lots of (initial) patience.

5 / 10 - Encodya
Feb 22, 2021

Encodya brings an atmospheric, cyberpunk feel to a well-worn genre, but with a mundane plot and puzzles, it fails to capitalise on its setting.
