Review: G.G Series VERTEX (DSiWare)

G.G Series VERTEX (DSiWare)

A bit too one dimensional

The next game in the G.G series is here, and this one is yet another unique take on the puzzler genre. While G.G Series VERTEX starts out strong with an interesting shooter-puzzler hybrid, it quickly peters out when this concept fails to develop into anything further. Pair this with lacklustre visual and sound design, and...

Review: G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare)

G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare)

Double fault

The next entry in the G.G series opts to branch out a bit and little something in the sports genre. While this works relatively well initially, the novelty of the gameplay soon wears off and it quickly becomes rather boring. G.G Series RUN & STRIKE is a decent arcade game, but players looking for anything more will be sorely...
