Moorhuhn Remake – Review

Open Season! Moorhuhn Remake is a simple game to pick up without too much to worry about other than your time. It pulled me in by its analogy to my childhood hit Duck Hunt, while at the same time providing something new entirely. Does this little game make for a good fit on the Nintendo Switch though? How does it perform and is it anywhere close to the legendary hunting experience I remember from so many winters ago? “What is this game?” Let me start off by saying, chickens are not meant to fly. Period. To think of downing flying chickens is, at the least surreal, at worst brutal – something Moorhuhn Remake never gets though! It is by far one of the most child-friendly shooters I have ever played, and in that respect, it does pay homage to Duck Hunt. Yes, there are flying birds going aroun...

PUBG Mobile – Review

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has become quiet the phenomenon over the last year. It has topped charts with being the most played game and gaining a massive audience in a significantly short amount of time. With PUBG coming to mobile for free, backed by Tencent Games and developed by Lightspeed Studios, it has found an even bigger audience – one that plays on smartphones and has easier access due to it’s free-to-play nature. And it might be one of the biggest achievements in mobile gaming in a very long time. For, for those who somehow do not know, PUBG Mobile is a Battle Royale game – you jump off an airplane along with a hundred others, land on an island with nothing but your wits, run around picking up weapons, ammo and gear, and kill anyone that comes along your...

Legendary Eleven – Review (Revised)

Retro kicks! Legendary Eleven gives a new face to arcade-style home console football gaming. It’s an alternative to the more realistic football games. With a full roster of 36 national teams spread across 5 different cups the game holds a promise for many an hour of gaming and replay value, but does it hold up? Football being my favorite sport I am always interested in picking up a new football game and giving it a go alone or together with a friend or family member. Seeing the announcement of Legendary Eleven got me exciting and I couldn’t wait to get into it, digging in deep into the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with their characteristic styles and vibes. Loading the game brings up the main menu with a great looking retro style background. With only two game modes there is not much to choose from...

Looking to take some good games with you on the go? Here are some of the best mobile games you should be playing right now. Spaceplan Platform – iOS, Android SPACEPLAN is an experimental piece of interaction based partly on a total misunderstanding of Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. Use manual clicks and the passage of time to create and launch potato-based devices and probes from your nondescript satellite orbiting a mysterious planet. Unlock the mysteries of the galaxy or just kill some time in what the astrophysics community is calling the ‘best narrative sci-fi clicker game of all times’. Score – 8/10 The Firm Platform – iOS, Android The Firm is a twitchy fast-paced arcade video game where you work as a trader inside a big corporation. React fast, stay focu...

Alchemic Jousts – Review

  Cute yet Deadly Any of you, gamers out there who have dabbled into the tower defense genre knows that some of these can be tough, while others are a breeze. The most basic form of this genre is the age-old rock-paper-scissors. Combined with a clear understanding of chemistry and adding in RPG elements through a deck-building mechanism, you’ll arrive at Alchemic Jousts. It is a little game that hides among the many in the e-shop, but one you should definitely have a look at. Let’s dive right in! Alchemic Jousts doesn’t feature much of a story to be remembered for, but the game is draped by goodness. From the graphical prowess to the gameplay it is an absolute blast to play trough. What really shines in this game is the system of upgrades, unlocking passives, active skills, enchants, ...

Sly Spy – Review

The Name is Spy, Sly Spy The name is Spy, Sly Spy, admittedly an ambiguous choice when it comes to initials, but an all-around pistol-wielding badass. The American version of MI6’s precious Mr. Bond, come to live in the action platformer of the same name, ported to the Nintendo Switch. Another retro arcade game of yesteryear. How does it hold up in today’s day and age? I am a big James Bond buff, and it comes as no surprise that the Nintendo 64’s golden boy is still Goldeneye 007. Surely there must be a solid dose of nostalgia at play here, but that game was instrumental to me personally, as well as to the industry as a whole. Any other Bond title released on a Nintendo platform since, I had to pick up and play. Sly Spy is not James Bond, but for intents and purposes, he is the perfect sta...

MSI GE73 Raider 8RF – Gaming Performance & Portability Done Right

With gaming getting its roots deeper into the mainstream market, more and more people are looking to buy a gaming laptop. While previously, gaming desktops were almost always preferred for their superior performance, gaming laptops have stepped their game up by integrating desktop level power and offering greater portability. And MSI takes this power + portability combination to the next level with the new MSI GE73 Raider 8RF gaming laptop. We got out hands on the GE73 Raider 8RF and the performance was totally on par with any powerful system.

Johnny Turbo’s Arcade Bad Dudes – Review

Retro-Style Brawling Johnny Turbo’s Arcade hit Bad Dudes vs Dragon Ninja is a brawler typical of it’s time, which made its way over to the Switch. Loving myself some old-school beat-‘em-ups, heavy duty pixels and classic sound bites I was delighted to see the review code arrive in my mailbox, ready to get brawling! Choose one of the ‘Bad Dudes’, New York’s own street-wise brawlers, Blade and Striker, and set out on a mission to save the kidnapped President, Ronnie, from the rampant ninjas, a story that places itself squarely somewhere between the early eighties and mid-nineties, fitting for an arcade beat-‘em-up of this caliber. There are no surprises when it comes to the controls of the game, for it features the basic analogue directional inputs, as well as having an attack and a jump but...

The Crew 2 – Review

The original Crew had some really great ideas, but lacked in terms of execution. The idea of a seamless open world, with the entirety of America as the main map, appealed to me, and many others. Sadly, the actual gameplay was a bit weak, specially in contrast to some of the other racing games on the market. With its new sequel, The Crew 2 aims to fix those problems, while adding a lot more to the overall gameplay. The first difference is the addition of new vehicles – you can drive cars, ride bikes, fly planes and sail boats – and all of them feel fun in their own way. The overall tone of the game has also changed with the plot. It’s a lot thinner now, but that’s actually a good thing. Instead of the ridiculous revenge or heist plot, it’s a simple tale of a gu...

Lost Sea – Review

Setting sail once more Lost Sea is an action adventure game that employs basic RPG elements and effective battling system. It switches between a third-person three-dimensional world and a 2D overworld from which to select the island to explore. It throws the player right into the game; choose your shipwrecked wonderer and find yourself lost and all alone with nothing to hold on to save for the clothing on your back. Once you start exploring you’ll pick up a handy machete to cut your way through thickets and destroy objects standing in your way. Pretty soon you’ll find you’re not at all alone, as the island is populated with all sort of animals, set to oust you from their lands – situations in which that nifty little machete sure comes in handy! “Digging for treasure” The main goal in Lost ...
