Ninja Pizza Girl

There’s something about teaching and games that never quite works. 90% of the time, the games that try to hammer home a message just don’t deliver a satisfying game. There are certainly exceptions to the rule (like Particulars), but the vast majority of educational games […]

Armikrog

Having played many point-and-click adventures throughout my childhood, The Neverhood was always a standout for me with its quirky humour and claymation art style. I remember being glued with interest by the oddly-shaped hero, Klayman, and the world he lived in; it was unlike any […]

LEGO Jurassic World

Developer: TT Games Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 12/06/2015 I told myself I wasn’t going to review any more Lego games; after all, there weren’t any franchises left that I had been dying to see as playable Lego characters. Next minute, playable dinosaurs, movie-accurate worlds and a […]

Hyrule Warriors

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 20/09/2014 I feel like I need to start this review off by saying that I’m glad that “Hyrule Warriors,” isn’t preceded by “The Legend Of Zelda.” In fact, I think we’d all do well to pretend that any characters or […]

Shovel Knight

Platform(s): PC, Wii U & 3DS Release: 26/06/2014 I wasn’t really sure if I would enjoy this game. I’ve seen a few “8-bit” titles recently, and some of them turned out to be pretty good, I suppose? However, here was yet another one, and I […]

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 02/07/2014 When Guacamelee! launched on PS3 and PS Vita last year, I had a really great time playing it. As one of my favourite games of 2013, as well as one of the best games on the Vita to this day, this […]
