We've all been there, a game angers or frustrates you to the point of throwing a controller across the room. Some games are primed to do just this such as Trials or Super Meat Boy. While Metrico teeters very close to this point, the anger is more directed at you for not been able to see the solution that is right in front of you. Metrico is a combination of platform and puzzle, which also includes a little bit of maths. Well, sort of. The feel of the game is very mathematical. You are given angles and percentages to help you ... Read More »
We've had a strange love for Artifex Mundi's series of hidden object games, noting how each release on Xbox One has been an improvement on the last. And the pulpy horror tale, Nightmares from the Deep: The Siren's Call continues that trend. Hit the links for our reviews of Artifex Mundi's Enigmatis and Grim Legends.

There are no words in Teslagrad, save the title screen and closing credits, yet this puzzle-platformer from developer Rain Games tells a cohesive, flowing, and engaging story. That it manages to tell any kind of story without words is an achievement; Teslagrad's story is a complex one of treachery and greed, loss and hope, all conveyed through wordless puppet shows and still images. Remarkable. Teslagrad is a game that is many things at the same time. It is a platform game that has puzzles, it's a thoroughly modern game that's steeped in nostalgia, and it's a tight platform game played out ... Read More »
