The 1980’s was a decade of evolution in many areas. The rise of computers, cult music forever sang at a Sunday night pub karaoke, and action heroes. Films such as Predator, Die Hard, Rambo, and not forgetting what is probably the single largest influence for Tango Fiesta – The A Team. Spilt Milk Studios have taken the premise from such 80’s over the top action heroes and blended it together to form a just as crazy retro inspired shooter. But do their efforts match the standards of Mr T? Or should we pity the fool? Starting off, you are given ... Read More »
Whilst we should of all been filling our boots with nostalgic Sonic juices by now, we have been treated to some new footage after the delay to Sonic Mania's release. The Flying Battery Zone featured in the 1994 smash hit, and some may say last great Sonic title, Sonic & Knuckles. The video below demonstrates a re-imagining of the Zone with our spiky haired friend, Knuckles the Echidna. Whilst the graphics look absolutely spot on and faithful to the original 16-bit series, hands on tests report that the handling is just as identical. Whilst Sonic Mania features other zones from ...

With the Xbox being a solid brand name in gaming for over fifteen years now, there’s been a vast library of games to satisfy our gaming needs over the three generations of console. Some of these games became one hit wonders. Some spawned franchises and many sequels. And some we just resigned to the recycle bin never to mention again. After the release of the zany Xbox platformer Voodoo Vince last week on Xbox One, we got thinking here at Xbox One UK. What other titles from the original Xbox would we like to see have a remaster on Xbox ... Read More »
The survival horror genre has always predominantly been best at home in a 3D environment. Not many developers have taken the risk to translate such a game into a 2D perspective. Although we have seen the more recent Deadlight, Uncanny Valley attempts to create a non-linear, 2D pixelated survival story of its own. Brought to you by indie developers Cowardly Creations, Uncanny Valley focuses around protagonist Tom who must face his own personal nightmares whilst living his everyday life. You’re never quite aware from the start as to what is going on in regards to plot. You begin by waking ... Read More »
There's only so much nostalgia one can take. We all long for those halcyon days of childhood, without a care in the world; our beloved Mega Drives and our Master Systems and our NESes and SNESes offering new universes for our childhood imaginations to explore. But when we play those games now, with half a lifetime under our belts and our jaded, cynical world views colouring all that we see... those games are just not how we remembered. But they are at least genuine. Cast of the Seven Godsends - Redux, to give this horizontal 2D stab-em-up its full name, rides its magical shield like ... Read More »
Developer Brushfire Games has announced that their second title, Polychromatic, will be arriving on Xbox One on 2nd October 2015. Polychromatic is an original two-stick shooter that blends modern aesthetics with classic design. The wave based progression and increasingly difficult number of enemies keep the game grounded in the genre's roots while the dynamic physics and flat geometric art style push it in a fresh, new direction. This slideshow requires JavaScript. Nick Gravelyn founder and partner of Brushfire Games said: "After working on the game for over a year, we couldn't be more excited to see the game get into ...

What more is there to love than Quests and Dungeons all in one game! If you made a small excited sound at the first word that only got higher in pitch and volume by the second word, this one might be for you.

No nonsense turn based combat. 8 Bit graphics akin to The Escapists, Gameboy Zelda or similar. Items, doors, keys, loot, vendors, bosses and more! If you haven't had a nerd overdose yet, keep reading and ... Read More »
