5 / 10.0 - Forever Forest
Jan 28, 2019

Forever Forest looks and sounds nice, but that unfortunately masks a game with performance issues and repetitive gameplay that will put many people off.

5 / 10.0 - Vane
Jan 21, 2019

Vane has some good ideas, but in stretching them out for too long across a pretty empty world, it soon becomes tiresome and frustrating.

8 / 10.0 - My Time at Portia
Jan 15, 2019

If you're prepared to learn a lot, and have plenty of time to spare, My Time at Portia is very enjoyable. Sporadic use of a guide will allow you to experience it in the fun, relaxed way it was intended.

6 / 10.0 - Pic-a-Pix Pieces
Jan 6, 2019

Pic-a-Pix Pieces is more of the same nonogram puzzles, with nothing new to bring to party. It's functional and simple, but don't expect anything more.

6.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 13, 2018

As an audio and visual package, Gris is stunning. However some missteps in gameplay prevent it from being something special.

By combining familiar gameplay with some new ideas, there's something in here for everyone. Smash Bros. is back and has never been better.

3 / 10.0 - Wordhunters
Nov 30, 2018

Even those who enjoy a word puzzle will find Wordhunters frustrating and dull. It lacks any spark, and should be avoided.

5 / 10.0 - Chimparty
Nov 19, 2018

Chimparty will appeal to children initially, but its over-simplified controls and odd way of rewarding victory in party games will even put them off before long.

Knowledge is Power: Decades is how not to do a sequel. The premise is still fun, but should only be purchased if you can't get access to the original.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers is just about a passable karting game. It feels rushed and bland, meaning there's little here to inspire you for very long.

5.5 / 10.0 - Warriors Orochi 4
Oct 19, 2018

There's too much packed into Warriors Orochi 4 making it an over-complicated mess. It's fun at first, but you'll lose interest as the challenge wanes and you get burdened with micromanagement.

Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise will undoubtedly appeal to fans of the series. For others, the wacky combat is the main draw, which should be enough to offset some pacing and story issues.

6.5 / 10.0 - Flood of Light
Oct 2, 2018

For some, Flood of Light will be a relaxing, thought-provoking puzzler perfect for a rainy day. For others its slow pace, frustrating collectibles and difficulty will mean reaching for another title instead.

A compilation that will appeal to die-hard fans mainly. Others might fancy a dabble but will soon be put off be the repetition and lack of challenge before moving on to something else.

6 / 10.0 - STAY
Sep 18, 2018

Stay has so much promise, and initially gripped me in a very personal way. As the story goes on though, ridiculous puzzles and multiple restarts will frustrate you, souring the overall experience.

7 / 10.0 - Donut County
Sep 14, 2018

A nice little game, with emphasis on the little. You'll have a great time in its couple of hours of quirky gameplay, but that might not be enough for some, considering the price.

6.5 / 10.0 - THE VIDEOKID
Sep 14, 2018

The VideoKid clearly loves the 1980s, and it hopes you do too. But strip away the nostalgia and you're left with a pretty basic experience. Unless you REALLY enjoyed Paperboy, you're better off looking elsewhere.

A quirky and charming beat-em-up with plenty of variety, strategy and humour. If the challenge doesn't put you off, you'll find yourself having having a great time.

8 / 10.0 - Road to Ballhalla
Aug 9, 2018

If you can take the difficulty on the chin, you'll experience a broad range of top-notch puzzles, that are well-executed and overlaid with a cheeky, playful tone. Rolling a ball around around a level shouldn't be this much fun.

7.5 / 10.0 - Semblance
Aug 1, 2018

By letting you morph the environment, Semblance is a new twist on the puzzler, asking you to creatively solve its challenges. New mechanics keep things fresh throughout, but also highlight what could have been if the game were longer and its ideas developed further.
