RCMADIAX Announces Avoider, Due Out on the Wii U eShop in 2016

Hopefully won't be one to avoid

If nothing else, RCAMDIAX has certainly been faithful to the Wii U eShop, with about a dozen titles released on the storefront in a relatively short period of time. While it may be that none of these have been rated particularly highly here on Nintendo Life, the games nonetheless offer some cheap entertainment for...

RCMADIAX Is Bringing Its Entire eShop Back Catalogue To Europe And Australia

New IARC rating system to thank

Indie studio RCMADIAX has revealed that it is bringing its entire back catalogue of titles to Europe and Australia.

Review: Pixel Slime U (Wii U eShop)

Pixel Slime U (Wii U eShop)

Pixel imperfect

RCMADIAX's latest eShop title, Pixel Slime U, attempts to create a simple, addictive experience by distilling gameplay down to one button and playing around with level design. The good news is that its one-button gameplay is reasonable and can be quite fun at times. The bad news is that, like many of the indie developer's games,...

Don't Crash (Wii U eShop)

Crash and burn

The Wii U eShop sometimes comes under fire for having a library of games that seem better suited to mobile platforms. Let's be fair, though: despite their reputation, mobile games aren't intrinsically bad - there are plenty of quality titles to play on smartphones and tablets if you're inclined to seek them out. That said, the eShop...

TABLETOP GALLERY (Wii U eShop)

No Dice

TABLETOP GALLERY serves as a compilation as of three eShop titles previously only released in the US - TOSS N GO, SHUT THE BOX and POKER DICE SOLITAIRE FUTURE. Each of these dice-rolling titles never made their way to European shores, prompting developer/publisher RCMADIAX to eventually re

Likely to focus "on platforms with a larger install base" in 2016

Review: BLOK DROP X TWISTED FUSION (Wii U eShop)

BLOK DROP X TWISTED FUSION (Wii U eShop)

A twist to a solid formula

Crossovers can sometimes make for odd bedfellows. In the case of BLOK DROP X TWISTED FUSION (BDXTF), the minimalist-styled puzzle formula of BLOK DROP U has received a few tinkerings and a fresh coat of paint from Twisted Fusion, a title that has not yet been released at the time of this review. It's hard to say many were...

Review: TOSS N GO (Wii U eShop)

TOSS N GO (Wii U eShop)

Use as directed

Simplicity is never a bad thing in itself. An experience can be extremely easy in execution, yet still provide plenty of rewarding elements. Sometimes, however, something can be boiled down into such simple elements that it loses some of those satisfying quirks, and that's where RCMADIAX's TOSS N GO suffers. TOSS N GO is another in...

SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop)

Feeling a bit Flappy

It's difficult to review RCMADIAX's new title SPIKEY WALLS in a rational fashion – without any context, one could easily write, "This is a Flappy Bird clone," and it would be exactly correct. SPIKEY WALLS accomplishes everything it sets out to do. You control a flappy bug by pressing the A button to navigate a never-ending...

RCMADIAX Reveals SPIKEY WALLS for Wii U, a Block Capitals Flappy Bird Clone

Has a revolutionary “HIGHSCORE” tracker

It's an age of clones in gaming, and one of the most peculiar, humorous and troubling instances of game cloning in the market was when Flappy Bird inexplicably went viral on smart devices. Clones followed, some tacky — oh, who are we kidding, all of them were — that attempted to repeat the success that...

Review: SHUT THE BOX (Wii U eShop)

SHUT THE BOX (Wii U eShop)

What's in the box?!

It's strange how little a concept matters as long as the execution is done well; just recently we criticised Dahku Creations' Soon Shine for playing too much like a mobile game rather than a home console title. Yet here we are with SHUT THE BOX (which seems like it's yelling at you), created by one-man studio RCMADIAX of BLOK...
