Overall, the game plays well on the nostalgia of fans of both Bridge Constructor and Portal titles, will exercise your brain with its puzzles without frustrating you too much. With a generous amount of levels its well worth a look and you may find it a lot more fun than it maybe looks at first glance.
Sparklite is one of those games that can take you an hour or a year to complete! If you are a fan of the top-down action games of old, then you’re going to especially love this game! The joy of it as I said in my intro, is that it is clearly inspired by but not a gimmicky copy of the classic Zelda games.
In a genre of game that sets the bar quite high, Race With Ryan is a disappointment if taken at face value, but the plus point is that it’s aimed at the very young gamer and their families, so it is making kart racing to a wider demographic then usual.
Overall, I had a pleasantly surprising experience with Bee Simulator. I enjoyed the tone of the game, the art style and the depth to the level design. I liked being able to explore a world from a different perspective, investigating all the different nooks and crannies this game has to offer.
If you did not play the original, and are a fan of the Ghostbusters franchise, then perhaps add it on your Xbox wishlist for when it’s on offer… if nothing else, you get to spend a few hours with Ackroyd, Murray, Ramis & Hudson hunting for ghosts and enjoying all of that ghostbuster-y banter!
I take no joy in slating a game. Particularly when it’s from a smaller developer who has likely spent a large percentage of the budget into the game. But I cannot emphasise any more how poor an effort this is. Across the board. Do not waste your money on this title.
Trine 4 is a great success. It’s strange coming into a series so late and being able to get so much enjoyment out of it. But here I am, fully recommending anyone with previous experience with Trine, and those who are just fans of fun puzzle platforming games, to check this one out.
For me personally when it comes to Dungeons & Dragons, I think I shall stick to tradition. A party of 6 friends, with my Volcano dice-set and my Tiefling fighter named Dreasmonde. He’s determined to kill Strahd with his very helpful Siri-sword named Daisy, and his Iron-Man style Kazan armour… all to impress the love of his life, Esmerelda!
Giving the gamer flexibility to come to their own conclusions is part of the beauty of it. Does this hit the height of Limbo and Inside? Certainly not, but it does have a very good go. Anyone who is a fan of those games, should certainly be checking this out.
