    Review Shift Quantum

    Do androids dream of black and white puzzle rooms?

    The quest for happiness is no easy feat. It means so many different things for every single individual on this Earth. But what if you could bottle it? Would you blissfully ‘buy happiness’ from someone, or is it the quest itself rather the destination that will bring you an eternal smile to your...

    Review Yesterday Origins

    Die another day

    Review Smoke And Sacrifice

    Drear, there and everywhere

    Sachi lives in a perfect, pastoral village. The inhabitants worship a mechanical Sun Tree that powers the community with its benevolent light. Everything’s hunky dory except for one thing: prosperity depends on firstborn children being sacrificed to the Sun God via a big laser. Sachi accepted this when she surrendered...

    Review Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

    Out with the new, in with the old

    Without context, Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon sounds horrendous. A title that offers nothing other than a few words thrown together seemingly on a whim, it may as well just be another under the radar game that comes and goes without anyone realising. With context, however, it’s a sleeper hit that celebrates the...

    Review ATOMINE

    SHALL WE PLAY A GAME?

    Go up to any of your tech-savvy friends and whisper, “STUXNET!” in their ear and don’t be surprised if they break out in cold sweats. This nasty little number was first discovered back in 2010 and it used no less than four zero-day exploits on Windows operating systems to spread and lay dormant in thousands of systems,...

    Review White Night

    Are you afraid of the dark?

    The year is 1938; the economic tsunami that is the Great Depression is sweeping over America and late one night a man finds himself driving home from a local bar, located on the outskirts of Boston. As he crosses over a bridge at a steady pace in his automobile, a ghostly silhouette of a girl walks out, leaving the man...

    Review Nihilumbra

    Nothing to see here

    Artistic video games aren’t something you see all too often from major video game companies, but indie studios are quite the opposite, being far more daring and bold in their pursuits. Sometimes these artistic games are done in a meaningful way, like with Journey, and other times they don’t quite seem to reach what they were...

    Review Yoku's Island Express

    A pinball-metroidvania that really delivers

    It's safe to say that Yoku's Island Express is the first pinball-Metroidvania game we've ever played. We sincerely hope it's not the last. Swedish indie studio Villa Gorilla has produced an improbable mash-up that succeeds through an uncommon combination of charm and inventiveness. Beyond all that, though,...

    Review Die for Valhalla!

    I live. I die. I live again

    In 1991, Jaleco published Avenging Spirit for arcades and one year later for the humble Game Boy. What set this cute platformer apart from the rest of the bunch was the ability to possess enemies, thus offering up a varied roster of characters with different abilities to navigate each level. So it's a pleasant surprise to...

    Review Ikaruga

    “Even though the ideal is high, I never give in”

    Upon first release on Sega NAOMI-powered arcades back in 2001, Ikaruga polarised audiences. While it most certainly was a vertical scrolling shmup like one would expect from the spiritual sequel to Radiant Silvergun, it played nothing like it. In fact, it played like no shmup before it and even...

  • News Zelda-Inspired Action RPG Songbringer Brings Top-Down Adventure To Switch Next Week

  • News Just Shapes & Beats Launches On The Switch eShop Next Week

    Feel the beat

    The Switch eShop has played host to several quality rhythm games over the months since launch, with the likes of Voez, Thumper, and Runner3 bringing plenty of musically infused action to the hybrid.

    Review Punch Club

    Super punched out

    The idea of a fighting game in which you don't actually do any fighting might sound like an odd one, but that's precisely what you'll find in Punch Club. This is a conversion of a casual management simulator that started out life on PC and mobile before making its way to 3DS and other consoles last year. There have been no radical...
