Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days sees you taking control of one of the six iconic colour-coded characters and will be playable alone or with a friend via co-op. It seems as though they're taking a unique approach to the isometric shooter, whereby you will be able to rewind time should your characters get into some serious trouble, allowing you to re-think your strategies before proceeding onwards, again. You can check out the trailer for this title ... Read More »

When Madame Charmaine discovers what has happened, she is knocked out and these thugs kidnap her, and it's up to Vince to hunt them down. With reality splitting and creatures coming back to life as ... Read More »
As you may be able to tell from the title, this isn't a HD remaster. This isn't a 'definitive' edition either. It is its own game, well deserved within it's own right, that it modestly has the exact same title as the original. Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap is a 2D Platformer/ RPG hybrid game, reworked from the ground up, from the original title in the very late eighties. Every single facet of this title has completely been redesigned and recreated in a gorgeous cartoon style, with vibrant colours and pretty scenery: Think of the original as a sketch ... Read More »
Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom started life out as a manga, having never been released, which then gave the inspiration for the artist to develop a game. In came Kickstarter, reaching its goal and thus development on this title begun. The best way to accurately describe which genre Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom falls under, would be to say it's a huge blend of Action RPG, Adventure, Puzzle and Brawler. At its core, it is an Action RPG, but throw in some Zelda puzzles and combat taken from a fighting game and this is what you get. But it all works perfectly ... Read More »
