Spinch – Review

Spinch is a vibrant, wacky, and challenging platformer that brings a fresh perspective to the genre through its presentation and gameplay elements. Underneath its rainbow facade hides a competent and satisfying experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome. That said, the latter half of the game will absolutely test your aptitude for running and jumping, so don’t let that cute exterior fool you. Across six different worlds, titular protagonist Spinch must rescue its 12 children who are stranded in four different levels. Retrieving them is somewhat optional; you can find up to three in each level, and the more you have at the end of the world, the better prepared you will be to take on the fifth stage boss fight. There are also bonus stages you can unlock that give you the opportunity to ear...

Paradise Killer – Review

Paradise Killer is what you get if you crossed the tone and stylings of Suda 51’s games, Ace Attorney, a bit of a collectathon platformer, and a whole bunch of dead mall style vaporwave. I first played the demo back during Ludo Narra Con months back and it intrigued me and I’m happy to see that it ended up being one of the best detective games I’ve played alongside the likes of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, Her Story, and Obra Dinn. Paradise Killer does its own unique style of detective game, with a strong focus on exploration as you travel around the 24th Paradise to find clues that helps you solve the case. The game guides you a bit on potential leads to follow so you have an idea how much you still need to do but it does not hold your hand at all when it comes to interpreting...

Dreamscaper – Review

I’ve played quite a number of rogue-lites recently, but Dreamscaper is different than most. By including the social aspects of a Persona game, it’s more story-driven than other games of its genre. But does this unprecedented spin on the genre work, or is it better left untouched? It’s been ten years since it happened. Cassidy hasn’t been able to keep it off her mind since. The tragic moment still lingers in her memories and has led her down a path of loneliness and depression. Seeking a new life, Cassidy moves half-way across the country to Redhaven. The crowded streets are a shift from the quiet hometown of Backhill, and she struggles to fit in with the way of society. The sad news is that life doesn’t always go the way you want it. Instead of pursuing her dr...

Mortal Shell – Review

Over the past few years there has been an explosion in souls-like games that have hit the market. These types of games successfully mix tough difficulty with exploration and action-RPG elements that fans can’t seem to get enough of.

Does this new property deliver a fun, and enjoyable new souls-like experience? Check out our thoughts in the Mortal Shell  review below. What is Mortal Shell? Mortal Shell is the first title out of the 2017 founded indie studio Cold Symmetry with publisher duties being handled by Playstack. In this punishing action-rpg players play as the Foundling, an empty vessel, who is capable of inhab...

Willy Morgan And The Curse Of Bone Town – Review

15 year old Willy Morgan receives a mysterious letter on the 10 year anniversary of his father’s disappearance. According to the letter, his father has unearthed a dark secret within the city of Bone Town, which likely caused Henry Morgan’s departure. Interested in learning as much as he can about his father’s research, Willy heads to Bone Town in search of answers. Score – 9/10 This point and click adventure encourages players to explore their surroundings thoroughly and use whatever is at their disposal to solve a variety of puzzles. For example, the game begins with Willy having to put together his bike by finding wheels, the handlebar, gears, etc. around his house. This game is also beneficial and enjoyable for those unfamiliar to the puzzle style of games, as t...

Crossfire X – Preview

Much was made of Crossfire X at last years E3. I personally had never heard of it, but it seemed to have quite the fanbase in it’s PC origins, so I was keen to check it out. Having spent a few hours with it, I can’t say I’m overly impressed, but I definitely keen to see where it goes from here. Three modes are on offer in the beta across 3 separate maps; two classic types and a more modern take (that I assume will be more equivalent to what we can expect from the Remedy-made single player portion). In terms of classic gametypes, on Black Widow we get our more standard fare in the form of bomb planting/defusal. Teams take it in turns to either attack or defend two points. Laboratory uses this concept too, but takes a more sci-fi approach, with the attackers being all but invisible when stil...

Hunting Simulator 2 – Review

When I was younger, I played a good amount of hunting games, but I never really got into them. There’s something about their pacing that I couldn’t appreciate. Now that I’m older, I enjoy a slow burn and the ability to approach gameplay the way I prefer. It turns out that hunting games are pretty good for that slow burn style gameplay. Hunting Simulator 2 is a first person game that is all about tracking and hunting various animals—from waterfowl to grizzly bears. You can do this with various rifles, shotguns, and bows across six areas, two each in Colorado, Texas, and Europe. And you can bring along a canine companion to help in your hunt, as there are three breeds of dog, each with their own abilities. There is no story, and no real objectives—just you, your gun, your dog, and the hunt. ...
