Devious Dungeon 2 is a simple game to understand and play, this a bad thing? NO! The simple approach is the best part, at least for me. It’s a nice change from having loads of buttons to press. The story is not the draw for players as well; it is very light on the story. I kept coming back time after time to beat that last level that I died on. For myself, this is a great change of pace.
Xenon Racer is a racing game very much built on the successes of Wipeout and Ridge Racer, releasing on all platforms is a testament to the developers for giving us gamers variety. Set in 2030 you would be forgiven a utopia of the I robot, terminator style tracks or environments and the objective is to win races, unlock new cars, customisations and tracks in different modes via Grand Prix, split screen, time trial and online.
Have you ever had that urge to go out with a spray can and break the law, with some very lax policing going on? No, me neither, if you have, please call 101 now thank you. So I threw on my baggy hoodie and my baseball cap and dived into this world of Vandals. Starting back in 1960, you travel through and discover this evolving world of wall art in this Vandals Switch Review.
The Gaijin Distribution published title, Blades of Time, is the latest in a long line of ports from the last generation of home consoles to land on the Nintendo Switch. Whilst many have been obvious choices, and some a little less so, Blades of Time was the first that made me truly question why. This hack-and-slash, action-adventure title from 2012 is neither steeped in nostalgia nor back by popular demand. The media opinions were somewhat of a mixed bag, and it seemed that Blades of Time would be left to rest alongside the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Will Riley (the game’s main protagonist) has been caught standing over the body of his recently murdered father. Innocent of the crime of patricide, Will, unfortunately, ends up on the guilty side and gets some hard time. Taking inspiration from an excellent TV series about prison breaking (cough), Will takes a sharp exit out of a window in the medical bay and escapes from his recent incarceration.
Pardon the pun, but Tennis games have been hit and miss over the past couple of years. It's usually apparent after a couple of sets if the game is going to be an enjoyable experience or not. Does Super Tennis Blast ace it or is it another foot fault? Read my Rapid Review to find out.
The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is a point and click adventure game that was funded successfully on Kickstarter. Not all games reach their targets, so this tells you a lot about the team and their vision. I am a big fan of this genre of game, and so I was intrigued to play it. What mystery lies in wait on Woolley Mountain? Read on for my Rapid Review.
I’m a big fan of games with strong narratives. When Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons came out back in 2013, I was excited to play it, but for one reason or another, I never got around to it. When I bought the game years later, I, for some reason, couldn’t get into it at all. Fast-forward to yesterday, where I got sent the code for the game to review and finished the game in a single sitting – only breaking to eat dinner with my wife. I had a great time with Brothers, aside from a few small issues that I’ll go into below.
Dragon Star Varnir is a JRPG through and through, with all the JRPG tropes you can shake a stick at. Being a Compile Heart game, it has the fan service to boot. Along with the fan service, there is a relationship building a decent story and feeding young kids raw meat (don’t try that at home).
