9.5 / 10.0 - APE OUT
Mar 20, 2019

I adore Ape Out. Visually it seems very uncomplicated, but step into the shoes of this gorilla and you will find that its simplicity belies a very considered approach to game design.

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.

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.

With a deceptively linear quest and extremely accessible challenges, it is unsurprising that Hob: Definitive Edition, like RiME, is not the most cerebral challenge. It is, instead, a gorgeous journey that dutifully sweeps you away into another world.

9 / 10.0 - My Friend Pedro
Jun 20, 2019

That is the reason to play My Friend Pedro in a nutshell, although bananas don’t have shells. My Friend Pedro is beautiful violence. Just like Doom, it takes a simple idea and builds an unrelenting pace. It is an unyielding and remarkable display of carnage that will keep any assassin’s finger twitching

8.5 / 10.0 - RiME
Jun 13, 2017

It would be unfair to rob you of the chance to experience Rime first hand. It is not a hardcore puzzle game. It is a moving story, painted on a gorgeous canvas, that absolutely demands your time. While it cannot escape the obvious comparisons to other, more challenging, experiences it still stuck with me. The game’s collectible lullabies and soundtrack are still firmly on repeat and I cannot deny that I was charmed by it. If you have an afternoon or two to spare and are willing to lose yourself in the great beyond, Rime is out now.

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.

8.5 / 10.0 - Hamsterdam
Aug 12, 2019

It’s nigh on impossible to dislike Hamsterdam. It is a cute caper with some very cool ideas that plays to its strengths. This isn’t an expensive or expansive game. It is a quick distraction and a wonderful one at that. Consider a weekend break to Hamsterdam and you won’t be disappointed.

8 / 10.0 - Silence
Apr 11, 2019

Silence is a smart, inventive fairy tale that draws from the classics and tackles some weighty subject matter.

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.
