Anoxemia is the absence of oxygen in arterial blood, the definition also used to include a moderate decrease in oxygen as well. Doesn’t this sound a lot like drowning? This been the case it is probably an apt name for a game that focuses on scuba diving. The main premise of the story in Anoxemia is that you are a sole surviving scientist who was sent out to research plants that have been contaminated by radiation. Even though you are alone, you are still determined to finish your mission, if only to solve some great mystery. We say that you … Read More »

Super Mario 64, Crash Bandicoot and Banjo & Kazooie. What do they have in common? Other than becoming recognisable and setting the bar for games that followed, they were fun 3D platformers of the late nineties that caused a ‘collection addiction’ in some, if not most, gamers who played them. There has been a huge shortage of titles from this genre of late, especially this current generation, but we are now starting to see a ‘rebirth’ of the genre. With Yooka-Laylee, Banjo-Kazooie’s spiritual successor, on the horizon and Skylar & Plux, a title inspired from another popular 3D platformer in the works, we’re certain … Read More »

The idea of Castles is simple: You take control of an engineer who must gather materials and tools in order to build the tallest tower ever made. It’s essentially a puzzle game. There are many puzzle games in all forms surfacing on Xbox One, but one familiar facet is that of the match-3 games akin to Candy Crush.

October 5th will see the arrival of a new action puzzle game on the Xbox store, Castles. An indie collaboration between publisher Badland Games and developer Whoot Games, the aim of the game is simple: build the highest tower in the kingdom, matching blocks of materials and construction tools, whilst facing problems like weather and giant bosses. A difference between this game and other block puzzle games is that the players don’t control blocks, instead, they control the “engineers”, which makes for a very different game experience. Blocks will fall from above onto the central 5×5 grid, where the player … Read More »
