    Review The Inner World - The Last Wind Monk

    The greatest teacher, failure is

    Released day-and-date with its predecessor on Switch, The Inner World - The Last Wind Monk continues the quirky, comic adventure of the hapless-yet-endearing Robert and his sassy counterpart, Laura. This is an iteration on the point-and-click original with all its character and humour (and inscrutable puzzles), plus...

    Review Runbow

    Let’s get ready to Runbow

    Runbow turned out to be something of a cult classic when it launched on Wii U back in 2015. Mixing a whole lot of colour, chaos, party-style fun, a generous amount of solo player content, and even a selection of favourite Nindie characters, the game was adored by those who played it and for good reason – it was...

    Review Bridge Constructor Portal

    A sturdy bridge between franchises

    Valve’s Portal series is one that most Nintendo gamers likely never expected to see on their console, yet here we are with an oddly inventive spinoff that makes a surprising amount of sense. Bridge Constructor Portal is a puzzle game at heart, though here it trades first-person shooting for a more methodical...

    Review Earth Atlantis

    Go deep

    From the NES heyday shoot 'em ups like Gradius, and moving through the console generations with various sequels, Nintendo players have seemingly often had a soft spot for the genre. Right up to the recent tide of Neo Geo classics released on the Switch, including Blazing Star and Alpha Mission II, the genre continues to be well represented;...

    Review Slime-san

    It's not easy being green

    If there's a lesson to be learned from Slime-San, it's that looks can be deceiving. Glancing at screenshots reveals a grungy, pixellated style, some weirdly gooey environments and what would appear to be a fairly straightforward 2D platformer, but scratch just beneath the slightly viscous surface and you'll find...

    Review Toby: The Secret Mine

    Shady stuff

    The Wii U eShop has played host to some wonderful indie titles over the years, and despite the console's impending retirement there's still room for another sleeper hit to offer a charming send off. With its distinctive art-style, intriguing level design and enigmatic story, Toby: The Secret Mine seemed set to impress when first...

    Review Typoman

    Man of letters

    Many writers daydream of their words having a powerful impact on the world; effecting change against evil and oppression. Developer Brainseed Factory has sought to adopt this concept quite literally in the form of Typoman. The bleak yet somehow achingly beautiful world of Typoman is one where letters take form and serve functions...
