Inversus Deluxe is a game that brings back memories of a time gone by. Its look is simple yet its ideas are complex. It takes us back to a time of 8-bit gaming and this is something that at first glance we feel like we miss. The concept of Inversus Deluxe is simple: You are a block, surrounded by blocks being attacked by other blocks. You have a limited number of shots that recharge over time. You must shoot your way through blocks to get to your enemies but care must be taken as these blocks can also act as ... Read More »
If you believe the arcade machines of the era, the 1980's consisted of a few things: bad guys, ninjas, neon, and pastel coloured clothes. Ninja Shodown, from Bitmap Bureau makes no effort to dispel this myth, instead embracing it and squeezing it for all its worth. The result is a fast and furious arcade game that's really good fun and that knowingly nods to its audience at every opportunity. Its premise is daft - it knows, and it doesn't care. Right from the title screen, the game makes it clear that it knows exactly what it is - a homage ... Read More »

If there ever was an eerie title, Bulb Boy is it. Developed by Bulbware, a small team from Poland, they've clearly been inspired by two things: Games of yesteryear and horror. Although at first glance, it may not seem like a horror. After all, it is a point and click adventure, but is it puzzling? Bulb Boy, the titular character wakes up from a nightmare to discover a mysterious darkness has overshadowed his house, eliminating light in its path. He hears a cry for help from his presumably father, in which he decides to go investigate and thus your journey ... Read More »

Iron Wings is a WWII flight sim from Italian dev team Naps, which sees you taking to the skies in a variety of planes across different parts of the European campaigns of the war. You play the game as a pair of pilots; Jack is a member of the legendary Tuskegee airmen - a group of African-American fighter pilots, while Amelia is his childhood friend who also happens (conveniently) to have become one hell of a pilot. You can assign different planes to each one and swap between them on the fly - which makes it easier to tackle missions which ... Read More »
Raiders of the Broken Planet is the latest game from Spanish development studio Mercury Steam - best known for their work on the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow titles back on the Xbox 360. Raiders apparently went into development before the second Castlevania game, and is the company's biggest project to date. Raiders of the Broken Planet is ambitious, and quite hard to pin down as a result of it. It's a game that wears its influences on its sleeve - and as you can see, there's a lot of them. It features cover-shooting third person action that's reminiscent of Gears ... Read More »
You've been tracking the deer for a little over 40 minutes. You first spotted it at the drinking pool you'd found during a lengthy and somewhat aimless wander, as it calmly lapped at the water's edge. You'd taken careful aim at that point and almost pulled the trigger - but a crack from beneath your boots in the undergrowth had spooked it at the last moment. You'd sworn under your breath and watched as it pranced off into the distance, bouncing in the air and kicking out its back legs elegantly behind it. Taking a moment, you'd weighed your options. ...

The Coma: Recut is a side scrolling exploration game with horror elements from indie developer Devespresso. The Korean development house have crafted a game that is genuinely unnerving, and at times outright scary. The Coma casts you in the shoes of Youngho, a student at Sehwa High School. He's a normal teenager, dealing with the pressures of adolescent crushes and looming exams. On arrival at school on the morning of his final exams, he's confronted with an ambulance and informed that one of his fellow students attempted suicide the night before, presumably due to the pressures of the Korean education ...
