Portal Knights is one of those games that comes along every now and then and tries to steal the crown from the ultimate sandbox game, Minecraft, whilst taking pointers from Terraria. There isn't much of a story here except for the fact that a 'fracture' had arrived to the world, creating portals between all the islands in the world, and it's up to you, whoever you may be, to travelling to and fro, completing quests and choosing one of these islands to call "home". As much as this is sandbox adventure title, it also focuses heavily on RPG elements to ... Read More »
From developers 10tons; who brought you many puzzle games such as Tennis in the Face and Sparkle, comes Spellspire, a genius (word worth a measly 7 points in Scrabble) mix of RPG and a word game. The game instantly throws you into the action (if you could call it that), with the first level outlining the basics of the game. It's rather quite simple: Make words of three letters or more from the ten available letters in order to eliminate the enemies that are slowly heading towards you, and reach the chest at the end of the level. However, the ... Read More »

As you may be able to tell from the title, this isn't a HD remaster. This isn't a 'definitive' edition either. It is its own game, well deserved within it's own right, that it modestly has the exact same title as the original. Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap is a 2D Platformer/ RPG hybrid game, reworked from the ground up, from the original title in the very late eighties. Every single facet of this title has completely been redesigned and recreated in a gorgeous cartoon style, with vibrant colours and pretty scenery: Think of the original as a sketch ... Read More »
Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom started life out as a manga, having never been released, which then gave the inspiration for the artist to develop a game. In came Kickstarter, reaching its goal and thus development on this title begun. The best way to accurately describe which genre Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom falls under, would be to say it's a huge blend of Action RPG, Adventure, Puzzle and Brawler. At its core, it is an Action RPG, but throw in some Zelda puzzles and combat taken from a fighting game and this is what you get. But it all works perfectly ... Read More »
It's been five years since our adventures with Commander Shephard. For most, it was a disappointing affair; having spending countless amount of hours only to have been delivered an abysmal conclusion to the series. We now have BioWare's next instalment: Mass Effect: Andromeda, set some 600 years later, so how does it fare up to its predecessor? Set in the year 2185, man (and Turian, Asarian, Salarian and Krogan) is boldly going where no man (or Turian, Asarian, Salarian or Krogan) has ever gone before - into a whole new galaxy, thanks to ancient technology discovered on Mars. We see ... Read More »
