  • News Bleed 2 Is Coming To Switch This March

    Tell me, do you bleed?

    The Switch eShop has played host to a wide variety of awesome indie games, one of which is the sublime Bleed. Developed by just one man, this run ‘n’ gunner mixes a wry sense of humor with frantic arcade action to produce a memorable and enjoyable experience, one that we highly recommended. It stood to reason, then, that...

  • News Nintendo Switch Sold The Most Consoles In the US This Past January

    A rising tide raises all ships

    It’s interesting to think about where public opinion was on the Switch at this time last year. After the Wii U, people were skeptical that the Switch would be able to find a major audience, and the admittedly anemic launch lineup didn’t do much to convince skeptics that things would go over well. Fortunately, the...

    Review Typoman

    What are words worth?

    Would you say that you like the solutions in your games spelled out for you? In that case, Typoman is here to punish you for your careless use of language. This side-scrolling platform-puzzler spells things out for you alright. Its protagonist, antagonists, and essential level furniture are all quite literally made up of the...

    Review Old Man's Journey

    An important pilgrimage

    Old Man's Journey is one of those games that’s hard to talk about without venturing into spoiler territory. As a short but sweet experience, it’s the story that takes centre stage here, with the gameplay confined to the audience of the auditorium. It’s definitely not going to be a game for everyone, but does this...

    Review Johnny Turbo's Arcade: Gate Of Doom

    A retro revival

    The 1990 fantasy action arcade game Gate of Doom (also known as Dark Seal) – by the now-defunct Data East – is the first of 20 titles Flying Tiger Entertainment plans to re-release on Nintendo's latest system.

    Review Shiftlings - Enhanced Edition

    A Gassy Good Time

    Puzzle platformers come in all shapes and sizes these days, but Shiftlings - Enhanced Edition might take that notion in its own direction. Preferably round, and depending on who’s carrying the fart bubble you might be large or small. Yes, really. The conceit of the game follows two hapless janitors tethered together as they try...

  • Talking Point What Games Are You Playing This Weekend?

    Review TorqueL -Physics Modified Edition-

    Boxed in

    Standing out from the crowd of games on the Switch’s eShop right now is a very challenging task indeed; countless indie developers have flocked to the console to show their support and generate sales of their games, and the digital store’s user interface doesn’t really offer much help to lost customers. On gameplay ideas alone,...

    Review Night In The Woods

    You can't go home again

    Make no mistake about it, Night In The Woods will stay with you. There aren’t very many games out there that manage to leave an imprint on the people who take the time to experience them, but Infinite Fall’s emotional adventure into rural isolationism, palpable Americana and the melancholy of long lost youth does just...

  • Feature Behind The Scares With Layers Of Fear: Legacy's Bloober Team

    "It will be a descent into madness..."

    Nintendo Switch has its fair share of platformers, shoot-em-ups and retro fighting games, but it's taken a while for the grisly realm of horror to finally make its gruesome home on the handheld platform. Layers Of Fear: Legacy is one of the first to make horror portable, with its unique mixture of first-person...
