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 »
If we were to think of a quality arcade basketball game, the chances are our answers would all be the same. NBA Jam. A dominate force during the 16-bit era and one that has since been left relatively untouched in favour of more realistic incarnations of the sport. The zany, over the top, ballistic chaos that came with NBA Jam offered not only a unique 2v2 basketball experience, but more importantly it was extremely fun and addictive. Two decades later and we’re treated to a new title that aims to replicate such madness in the guise of NBA Playgrounds from Sabre ... Read More »
Black and White Bushido is a 4 player 2-D platforming “stealth ‘em up”, according to the developers Good Catch, which is the most accurate description for B&WB. Other suggestions from us include “4 player dash ‘n’ slash”, and “one screen of monochrome mutilation”... Perhaps “stealth ‘em up” is better. You control a warrior of light or shadow, hiding in specific sections of the map waiting to strike. These sections will change every so often to ensure no players camp in the same spot for the whole game. The game itself is a single screen 2-D platformer with wall jumps, double ... Read More »
The Surge is hard. You will die, a lot. Now we've got that out of the way let us tell you a little more about The Surge, a hardcore RPG from Lords of the Fallen developers Deck 13. The Surge is set in a dystopian future where nearly all of the worlds resources have been used up and technology has advanced to the point where you now wear an exoskeleton to do some of the few jobs that remain open to the human race. And this is where you come in. You are starting your first day on the job ... Read More »
In some respect, Prey has been a long time coming. Originally, the title was planned and announced as a sequel to the 2006 game by Human Head Studios, also known as Prey. However, development hell ensued during the following years. Mostly put down to the acquisition of the IP by Bethesda from 3D Realms. It wasn’t until eight years after its announcement that its cancellation was confirmed and all seemed dead and buried for Prey. But that was not the case after Bethesda’s announcement in 2016 that whilst not a sequel, a so called ‘re-imagining’ of the first game was ... Read More »
Human: Fall Flat is a physics based puzzle platformer all about a human falling flat. A lot. More than pretty much any other game. Whether it be tripping off of ledges or as a result of being smacked around, needless to say, you'll be doing a lot of falling. Each level challenges players to find creative solutions to progress through the area using the objects around you, the laws of physics and a bit of initiative. The left and right trigger controls your left and right hand respectively, allowing you to grab onto objects in the environment. Initially, you'll be ... Read More »
“The Easiest Mode is Hard”, Butcher boldly exclaims in its intro; a statement almost immediately discredited by the casual difficulty setting. Two minutes in and we're already being lied to. But to play on casual is to defeat the purpose of Butcher. Declaring casual mode as the difficulty for people who cry when they suck at games, Butcher goads players into taking on the harder difficulties by challenging your masculinity or pride. You're not a pansy now, are you? Described as a 2-D shoot ‘em up tribute to Doom, the similarities between both games are clear. Playing as a one-cyborg army ... Read More »
Developer Rain Games' second game World To The West is set in the same universe as their previous game Teslagrad, offering some similar mechanics but experimenting with a whole different perspective, making it more of a 3D action adventure title as opposed to a 2D puzzle platformer. This title doesn't hold your hand, aside from the initial pop ups that display the buttons and what they do, but right from the moment you hit new game on that menu screen, the story kicks in and throws you straight into it, controlling the first of four characters you will play as - ...

You could accurately describe Ready at Dawn’s Deformers as a game about blobs smacking into each other. What, you need more of an explanation?! Deformers is an online multiplayer brawler/shooter/blob-smacking smorgasbord. You control a customisable orb of cuteness to do battle with other player controlled spherical objects to determine who is superior at handling their balls- I mean, blobs. Players pick one of five classes, each of which has different health speed and damage capabilities. It also modifies the moves that players can utilise to overcome their enemies, including a charge attack, the ability to fire shots, a grab and carry ... Read More »
