Review Revolution By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 4 months ago
Beneath a Steel Sky: Remastered Review

If you were one of those gamers who were patient enough to play ‘point and click’ adventure games over 10 or more floppy discs, then today is your lucky day. The widely acclaimed 1994 DOS release Beneath a Steel Sky has made its way onto the iPhone.

Puppy Palooza Review

Review Rock Ridge Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Puppy Palooza Review

The 80s came and left us over a decade ago, but its influences still haunt us today. For better or worse one of those influences is Simon, the electronic "Simon Says". As a toy it has its place in history, but in gaming it has often been part of a greater game and not the whole game. Puppy Palooza by Rock Ridge Games replaces bleeps with barks and a chance to create your own tunes. This is somewhat easier said than done and the controls will make anything other than playing Simon incr…

Ground Effect is an F-Zero or WipEout style hover-ship racing game where players traverse a series of varied tracks in high speed racing action. You’ll need to navigate each track, fly through each checkpoint and use your turbo effectively to come out as the winner and progress onto the next race.
