4 / 10.0 - Clock Simulator
Jan 30, 2019

Clock simulator really is a cluster of mini-games that set players against the clock. This is an interesting idea that doesn't quite go far enough meaning that the bell tolls far too quickly for this unusual indie game.

At Sundown Shots in the Dark is fundamentally a good game. It has a quirky retro graphics, some intelligent design and I'd happily give it another try on the PC.

At its heart, Nairi: Tower of Shirin is a magical adventure. It contains quite serviceable puzzles and a solid set of character dialogue that should hold your attention for most of the narrative.

Octahedron is definitely worth your time. It is simple yet challenging and I imagine that, just like Just Shapes & Beats, this will be in my long term rotation as I slowly edge towards that final neon cube in the sky.

7 / 10.0 - Coffee Crisis
Jan 8, 2019

Coffee Crisis is a fun throwback to the retro era. It takes a few new ideas, an interesting theme and simply has fun with things. If you are looking for a modern fighter with a variety of ideas you might want to look elsewhere. If you love metal and having fun just bashing face, then coffee crisis brews up a storm.

Override: Mech City Brawl is definitely one for the fans. The more I play this brawler, the more I realize that it apes Saturday morning Super Sentai and late night Kaiju shows. Little touches like the cardboard architecture, silly weapons, and satisfying reward scheme make for a game that I have not been able to put down since launch. Override: Mech City Brawl is a unique mix of colorful chrome plated mayhem and explosive combat that will blow you away.

9 / 10.0 - Abzu
Dec 6, 2018

I would love to talk through the game in more specific detail but that would ruin an incredible story with real depth. Abzu is a brilliant experience and available;e on the Nintendo eShop. Take the plunge and check it out on Nintendo Switch now.

6.5 / 10.0 - Gal Metal
Jun 13, 2018

A group of high school students, an alien attack, and Metal. Gal Metal is a unique rhythm based game that mixes metal with a free form playstyle, from DMM Games. Nothing could quite have prepared us for this as we defend earth from certain doom.

8 / 10.0 - THE VIDEOKID
Jun 13, 2018

The Videokid is developer Pixeltrip's modern runner with a retro twist. It puts players back in an era when VHS was the only way to watch movies at home. As a thoroughly irresponsible teenager, we take to our skateboard to deliver tapes, cause mischief, and avoid oncoming obstacles. This is our Videokid review.

7 / 10.0 - Camp W
Jun 13, 2018

Filling the same shelf space as titles like Life is Strange and Oxenfree, Camp W is a slightly lighter tale of magic, the odd monster, and summer camp.

7.8 / 10.0 - Pool Panic
Jun 13, 2018

Billed as the worlds least realistic pool simulator, Pool Panic is developed by indie team Rekim, and happens to be the epitome of how Adult Swim do games. From Robot Unicorn Attack to Battle Chef Brigade, Just as individual as the Adult Swim's TV programming, Pool panic takes a clear cue from this. Looking like a mash-up of the Mr. Men, Cuphead, and Rick & Morty, Pool Panic is a wonderfully anarchic work of 2D animation.

Turtlepop: Journey to Freedom is a fun title that doesn't fail to charm the socks off you. It follows the adventures of Bebo, Deephi, Slimmie, Willis, and Sparky as they attempt to make their way to freedom and throws in a ton of genres along the way.

7 / 10.0 - Haimrik
Jun 13, 2018

A fortuitous series of events gift Haimrik a magical book with a difference. What follows is a platforming, puzzle solving calamity with intermittent eviscerations and the odd lioness mauling.

Grip is a nerve-fraying distillation of speed, fury, and thumping techno beats. Created by Caged Element, Grip: Combat Racing takes the ideas that made Rollcage such an intense experience and drives them onto the Nintendo Switch, XBox One PlayStation 4, and PC. If you like speed but find Bugatti's a bit bland, this one might be for you.

Now, the Australian indie team brings Armello to the Nintendo Switch for those of us on the go.

Just Shapes & Beats allows some simple ideas to blossom into an inventive, engaging challenge that proves a tiny cluster of well-proportioned pixels can contain more personality than the mightiest action hero.

8 / 10.0 - Runner3
May 31, 2018

I would generally consider runner games to be a poor choice of port to pick up on a fully fledged console. After all, infinite runners practically choked mobile app stores at one time. Runner 3 is, however, an entirely different type of experience.
