    Review Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder Devastated

    Papers, please.

    War. War never changes. But Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder Devastated? No, those don’t change either. We first stumbled upon iFun4all tower defence game back in 2011 where a very wise man stated the Wiiware offering was “(...) far from the worst game ever”.

    Review Fish Tank

    An unrequested fishin' surplus

    We know what you're thinking: "yawn... another colour-matching puzzler." And you'd be forgiven for shrugging and moving on.
