    Review Pirate Pop Plus

    Let's rumble, bubble butt!

    In an industry focused on creating increasingly complex games and pushing the boundaries of what can be done with the gaming medium, it can be nice sometimes to take a step back and play something that's just… simple. Pirate Pop Plus is one such game; there's not much to it on the surface, but it's one of the most...

  • News Pirate Pop Plus Arrives on Wii U and New 3DS on 20th October

    Nope, we can't think of a piratey pun for crossbuy

    One of our highlights of PAX West, from a Nintendo gaming standpoint, was Pirate Pop Plus. Developed by Dadako and published by 13AM Shipping Solutions, it brings Pang / Buster Bros. to mind and has a huge amount of retro charm; we certainly enjoyed our hands on time with it. It's a game that's...

    Review Paper Mario: Color Splash

    Colour us impressed

    For any long-running series, innovation is key to keeping fans coming back for more without getting too bored. Gameplay tweaks and changes to the setting can work wonders in refreshing a stale format, but some might argue that if an idea ain't broke, then don't keep trying to fix it. The Paper Mario series has been no stranger to...

  • News Yooka-Laylee Will Be Getting a Boxed Release


    In just a few short months, Yooka-Laylee will be available on all the major console platforms, but the wait couldn't feel any longer. The highly anticipated 3D platformer aims to scratch an itch that's been mostly left untouched since the days of the Nintendo 64, and it looks like it'll be quite the adventure. Recently, it was announced...

    Review SteamWorld Heist

    Now in steamy HD

    Though Image & Form's most notable sales and critical breakthroughs have been on the 3DS, its games often cry out to be played in HD. The SteamWorld titles evoke an utterly charming steampunk aesthetic, with clunky and scrappy robots shining at full resolution on a TV. SteamWorld Heist was another hit for the studio on 3DS, but...

    Review SEVERED

    The game touch screens were made for

    A little while after the Metroidvania-esque Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, developer Drinkbox Studios has returned with its latest title, SEVERED. Released earlier this year on PlayStation Vita, does this unique title reach must-buy status on the Wii U eShop? The story of SEVERED is light. You...

    Review Word Logic by POWGI

    Word Up!

    Puzzle game developer Lightwood Games has been rather prolific on the eShop, and continues to bring word games to the store. Bringing six new puzzles to tease your brain, Word Logic by POWGI follows in the same vein as some previous titles from the studio. It goes without saying that unless you're really into word puzzles, this might not be...

    Review Quest of Dungeons

    Isn't it dangerous to go alone?

    For some individuals, roguelike games are a lifestyle. For others, it may be a case of playing one and ignoring the rest. Either way you look at it, this genre is as popular as ever on the indie development scene, with these types of games released on a regular basis across multiple platforms. While the Wii U eShop...

    Review Gear Gauntlet

    Is this the gears game we've been waiting for?

    Too often, spinning cogs are portrayed as a danger in video games. Consider a lot of platform levels in the earlier Mario and Sonic titles, and dangerous spiky gears would normally make an appearance a few levels in - ready to slice the famous mascots to shreds. So how about a game where gears are for...
