Artifex Mundi have graced us with yet another hidden object game on Xbox, this time in the form of Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan, providing you with several hours of puzzling entertainment, but does it offer anything new or more of the same? Like most other Artifex Mundi games, this title starts off with a short intro, introducing your (usually) unseen character into the games world, more often than not under a supernatural setting. This time, you're a doctor who has been summoned to the land of Eagle Kingdom, where a queen has fallen ill but is ... Read More »
Waking up dazed and confused in an abandoned asylum is no one’s idea of fun. More so when the majority of your memory is erased with only the sole purpose of saving a girl left bouncing around your mind. But that’s exactly the position lead character Cole Black finds himself in Get Even, a psychological puzzle shooter from Polish studio The Farm 51, and published by Bandai Namco. The key focus of Get Even leans toward the notion of memory, and the ability to not only re-live your own harrowing experiences, but also that of those around you. It’s an ... Read More »
There are usually two types of players that play chess. Those that do and play seriously, taking an eternity to make their move. Then you have the players who know how to play, but rarely play but when they do, it's all just for fun. Chess Ultra aims to bring in both those types of players and even players who've never played before, but how does it stack up on console? If you're unfamiliar with the rules of Chess, this title has an expansive tutorial mode which not only explain the rules, but lets you partake allowing you to remember ... Read More »
Kholat, developed by the Polish development team IMGN.PRO first launched on PC in 2015, and is now available for the first time on the Xbox One. The game is based on a real world event involving the unexplained deaths of 9 skiers in the Ural Mountains in 1959. Despite extensive investigations at the time, no concrete reason for their deaths was ever found. Their tent had been cut open from the inside out, and they'd fled sparsely dressed and barefoot into the wilderness. When their bodies were found, several of the victims had suffered internal injuries, but displayed no physical ... Read More »
When you think of free to play games, you’ll likely think of titles that are not up to scratch or those that are synonymous with the infamous micro-transactions. However, F2P has become much more mainstream over the last decade, mainly owing to the surge in smartphone technology. And this is a trend that home consoles are slowly starting to recreate with recent titles such as Paladins and Gems of War. Cue Crossout, a fully fledged F2P post-apocalyptic MMO. Not exactly the genre you would expect from something that comes for free, but can this brave attempt strengthen the reputation of the ... Read More »
Neighbours can be the best of friends or they could easily be the bane of your life. But whatever you think of yours, Fermenter Games has your neighbourly community teaming up in all out warfare. You’ll need to fight a wide range of fierce enemies to clean the streets, gardens and white picket fences. But will this forged alliance reign supreme? Neighborhorde takes the form of an isometric twin-stick shooter with a distinctive art style. Your mission is simple. Survive through several days and nights against a horde of enemies, with each day delivering its own boss fight. And that’s ... Read More »
Action RPGs have become vastly more mainstream in recent years, earning much favour over the holy grail that is the traditional JRPG. Victor Vran falls into the former category as Haemimont Games (of Tropico fame) introduce us to their demon hunter. Having released previously on PC in 2015, Vran has now slayed his way over to Xbox One. But can he reign supreme and show Van Helsing a trick or two? Or is this one best left nailed by the stake? Your journey begins with a cutscene of nicely crafted images to lay out your story and current situation as ... Read More »
Everspace is everything that you can possibly want from a space shooter. There is not only space to explore and enemies to obliterate but there is also a RPG element with a twist that makes it more exciting than it should be. Everspace sets out to take you on an adventure and it over-delivers by a huge margin. There is a story behind Everspace reinforcing what you are doing. At the start of the game you have no memory. As you go on through the different sectors of space the story is played out and your past revealed to you ... Read More »
Italian developers LKA bring a unique horror puzzler in the form of The Town of Light, relying on storytelling and thought-provoking material to pull you through the experience. "If you think you have psychological problems, please speak to a local doctor or specialist" is the opening disclaimer before you start the game. One might think that this disclaimer is an unnecessary one, considering many titles that come before it involve an abundance of violence without relevant disclaimers, but the more you start to experience this title, the more you realise why this is needed. Experience being the key word here, as ... Read More »
