Review: Tappingo 2 (3DS eShop)

Tappingo 2 (3DS eShop)

Extended play

When the first Tappingo hit the scene in early 2014, it brought a puzzle style that was simultaneously fresh and familiar. Combine that with an amiable price point and it was a pick to easily consider diving into. Now creator Hugo Smits is back with Tappingo 2, a new edition of puzzles for those who have thoroughly tapped all previous...

Nintendo 64x64: Body Harvest

Body Harvest

Despite featuring one of the slowest protagonists in gaming, the huge locations filled with destructible villages and population, and the enormous range of vehicle types give this game a scope unheard of at the time of release. Although my copy became so full of bugs both intentionally and unintentionally that it became impossible I will never...

"I have an iPhone case like this"

Gaming is becoming more and more mainstream with every turn, and sometimes we have to take a step back to realise just how far we've come, and depending on your age that could go back anywhere between the GameCube and the ZX Spectrum. To give you some perspective of the progress we've seen, take some typical modern...

Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

A less than fitting farewell

In 1996, the Mega Man X series parted ways with Nintendo hardware. Mega Man X3 is how it ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper. The first Mega Man X game got things off to such a solid start that it was almost inevitable that a letdown would come sooner rather than later. After all, with so little room for improvement,...

Mii Fighters Get Ready For Smash Bros. Battle with Nintendo Heroes on 3DS

The hype is real in Japan

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is less than a week away in Japan, which no doubt has Nintendo's accountants rather pleased.

Nintendo 64x64: Bomberman 64

Bomberman 64

I love the bomber man games, before this one. The single player game was mediocre at best, and the multi-player did not compare to the SNES version, and definately not the glorious TG-16 version with a multitap. That's not to say this is not a fun game, the chaos of bomber man shines through and the core game play is still intact with charm.
