Last Inua - An Arctic Adventure Review

Review Creative Mobile Games By Alex Beech, 4 months, 1 week ago
Last Inua - An Arctic Adventure Review

Set in a frozen tundra, Last Inua is a chilly tale of isolation and desperation. An evil demon called Tonrar is trying to destroy the world. Only one person is able to stop him: a boy named Hiko who is blessed with a supernatural power. Unfortunately, these powers are too much for his adolescent body to handle, so his loving father, the powerful Ataataq, must help him on his quest. Their journey plays out in the form of a 2D puzzle platformer in which you switch back and forth be…

Republique Review

Review Camouflaj LLC By Alex Beech, 4 months, 1 week ago
Republique Review

République begins abruptly with you receiving a call from the panicked hero, Hope. Trapped in a totalitarian state, the young girl longs for freedom. Believing that you are her last chance of escape, Hope asks you to use your hacking skills to manipulate the city’s electronics to help free her. It is a strange take on the stealth genre, that has you leading Hope remotely through the oppressive world. The 1984-inspired fiction sees the walls covered with surveillance camer…

Superfrog HD Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Alex Beech, 4 months, 1 week ago
Superfrog HD Review

Some things - including old and beloved games - are often better left in the past. It isn't that these games were rubbish when they were originally made, rather gaming’s constantly evolving nature leaves many games feeling like relics. Team 17’s Superfrog HD is a perfect example of this. The problems span issues with both the original 1993 Amiga release of Superfrog, and this new HD remake. Take the controls. Not one of the three interface options provide a decent re…

AngerForce - Strikers Review

Review Screambox By Alex Beech, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
AngerForce - Strikers Review

If you have ever played a shmup then AngerForce - Strikers will hold few surprises. It's a familiar story: a series of vertically-scrolling levels which have you tracing your craft's path a halestorm of bullets, trying to destroy any enemies in your way. AngerForce you offers three characters to choose from, each with their own special attacks. Which you select will be dependent on your play style, with characters like the robot offering powerful laser attacks that do huge d…

Wayward Souls Review

Review Rocketcat Games By Alex Beech, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Wayward Souls Review

In theory, games with procedurally generated levels can offer an eternity of gameplay. For this near endless resource to be worth tapping, however, the journey has to be worth revisiting.  The moment we stepping into the cruel and unforgiving world of Wayward Souls, we felt oddly at home. Its top-down 2D perspective gives the game a classic 16-bit RPG look, while the brutal permadeath runs and persistent leveling underscore the game's roguelike heratige. Wayward Souls embraces th…

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Review Gameloft By Alex Beech, 4 months, 3 weeks ago
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

With a great licence comes a great chance of disappointment. And, we'll admit, before even firing up the game, we were prepared to be underwhelmed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Things got off to a shaky start. Gameloft has squeezed an overwhelming amount into its latest movie tie-in, so within moments we were expected to have come to grips with the game’s virtual stick, buttons, and touch controls. These, along with a camera that could barely keep up with the action, c…

Monument Valley Review

Review ustwo™ By Alex Beech, 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Monument Valley Review

It would be easy to describe Monument Valley as an interactive M.C, Escher lithograph. But, while the game's topsy turvy environments certainly owe much to the Dutch artist’s work, giving you the ability to interact with a world of perspective-bending vistas, it is more than just a clever picture come to life. The aim of the game is to guide Princess Ida to the top of a series of towers. There are ten stages to complete, each containing a unique piece of architecture t…

Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Review

Review TinyCo, Inc. By Alex Beech, 5 months ago
Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Review

Our feelings towards Family Guy as a show oscillate wildly. While at times its offensive jokes can seem cruel and almost bigoted, when they hit their stride the writers and performers can deliver big laughs. What Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff manages to do is strip away any uncertainty, handing you a package containing the show's worst aspects in a box that looks remarkable similar to the one which houses The Simpsons: Tapped Out. The  game is predicated on rebuilding the…

CLARC Review

Review Matthias Titze By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
CLARC Review

CLARC is a block puzzler wrapped in the strangely sympathetic tale of a small repair droid trying to save the world and find love.  After an explosion takes out an entire block of the Martian colony he calls home, CLARC is charged with repairing the damage. Before long the little machine finds itself falling in love with a missile, and trying to save the planet from the invading forces of M.O.T.H.E.R. To achieve all of these goals, CLARC has a single tool at his disposal: the ab…

Sometimes You Die Review

Review Philipp Stollenmayer By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Sometimes You Die Review

Describing Sometimes You Die is surprisingly tough. Reducing it to its mechanical elements does the concept a disservice. However, recounting journey runs the risk of ruining the various twists and meta-commentaries contained within it. It asks you to think about what a game is, what you consider fun, and what you are prepared to endure in the name of entertainment. That may sound pretentious - and at its heart Sometimes You Die is just that - but it is none the worse for it…

Braveland Review

Review Tortuga Team By Alex Beech, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Braveland Review

Braveland embraces its cliched fantasy setting with a gusto we usually reserve for our first coffee of the day. A young man's village attacked by bandits. With everything he holds dear ripped from him, he dons his father's armour and heads after them. It is a wonderfully predictable fantasy story, but one that sets the perfect stage for Braveland's turn-based strategic gameplay. Taking control of the would-be town hero, you fast begin to form a troop of militia from the world’s…

Frontline Commando 2 Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Alex Beech, 5 months, 4 weeks ago
Frontline Commando 2 Review

Frontline Commando 2 is the latest shooter to emerge from Glu's freemium blaster factory. But, even though it takes the same structure as many of the company’s other titles, it does try to stand apart from its stablemates. Though Frontline Commando 2’s standard near-future battlefields don't help stand out from the crowd, their visual clarity does. Though the locations and soldiers may look familiar, every environment, enemy, and boss looks crisp and clear on the touchscre…

The Voyage Review

Review Toy Studio LLC By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
The Voyage Review

The Voyage wastes no time in immersing you in its pirate-themed, puzzle-based world. Your adversary Captain Bucklebeard quickly establishes the game's loose story: a race to find the treasure of Velvet Marley. From here, the puzzles come thick and fast as you make your way through each of The Voyage's 100 increasingly difficult conundrums. Before each new challenge begins you are treated to a quick instruction screen. These are important, as your goal changes dramatically from one puz…

Oquonie Review

Review David Mondou-Labbe By Alex Beech, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Oquonie Review

Oquonie offers no introduction or explanation. It's developer has created a striking and unusual world filled with strange rules and bizarre creatures - but he has left it entirely up to you to make sense of them. You are dropped into a beautifully-drawn isometric environment. Your character looks like a strange, long-necked bird in smart trousers. With no clues as to how to proceed, you must tap and swipe the screen to explore the monochrome landscape. After you've run into a couple…
