Loco Motors Review

Review Minority Media Inc. By Alex Beech, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Loco Motors Review

Loco Motors is a car-construction puzzle game that fully embraces the wackiness of its own premise. The aim is to build cars to complete races and challenges, with the game putting very few limits one what you can construct. This proves as much as a curse as it is a blessin,g as, while you struggle with the game’s various physics based puzzles, you constantly feel like you might be missing a more elegant solution. Each map has six challenges, and successfully solving each of the…

Death isn't the end in fatalistic new indie platformer Sometimes You Die

Death isn't the end in fatalistic new indie platformer Sometimes You Die

Sometimes You Die is a new punishingly hard indie puzzle platformer from Philipp Stollenmayer. It seems influenced by games like Super Meat Boy, in which dying over and over is an integral part of the gameplay. But unlike other titles, Sometimes You Die it leaves your lifeless corpse in the level to aid in future attempts. You take control of a tiny silhouetted square which you must guide through each stage. Once dead, you will respawn and be able to bounce on through the level again, this time using you old corpse as a bridge or platform.   If you're prepared to put in the time, you can fill pits with dozens of cubic cadavers in service of getting just one of your squares to the…

Review ONE MORE LEVEL S.A. By Alex Beech, 7 months, 1 week ago
Deadlings Review

Zombies have a rough time in video games. They spend most of their afterlives getting mauled, shot, impaled, and dismembered. However, in comic-styled platformer Deadlings, the aim is to actually keep the walking dead walking, as you try to guide a troop of brain eaters through  lethal laboratory mazes. Each of the 2D mazes are filled with doors, spikes, saws, and other obstacles. There's a blueprint view of the current area which you can call up at any time to help you plan…

Block Legend Review

Review Alvin Phu By Alex Beech, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Block Legend Review

Like most puzzle games, Block Legend is all about trying build a high score. The difference here is that rather than simply trying to match coloured blocks to get points, you're fighting a string of fantasy-themed, randomly-spawning opponents in a charming 8-bit world. Different coloured blocks have different effects in battle. Depending on the properties of the tiles, matching two or more touching squares gives you the power to attack or defend. This means you have to keep a car…

The Voyage Review

The Voyage wastes no time in immersing you in its pirate-themed, puzzle-based world.

Before each new challenge begins you are treated to a quick instruction screen. These are important, as your goal changes dramatically from one puz…

New adventure game Doggins gives you a glimpse into your dog's dreams

Anyone who has ever had a puppy will recognise the quiet whimpers and excited twitches of a dreaming dog. Now Brain&Brain's new adventure game Doggins gives you the chance to explore just what is going on in their mongrel minds. Doggins wastes no time establishing its adventure game credentials. Donning the collar of sleepy pooch, you are approached by a monocled squirrel holding a "curious envelope." Turns out the acorn loving critters are trying to rewrite history by leapfrogging though history, and preventing important inventions from being created. Naturally, it's up to you and Doggins to stop the squirrels via a series of tactile puzzles. Doggins's surreal story works…

See a rhino doing the robot in funky new Nimblebit game Disco Zoo

When we were young there were only two things we liked about school: trips to the zoo, and the end of term disco. It seems Nimblebit and Milkbag Games have similarly fond memories, as they have forced both these events together for their new collaboration Disco Zoo. Despite the fact Disco Zoo will hit the App Store tomorrow, we are still a little short on details as to what the game will actually be. From what we can gather , you have to travel the world to collect exotic animals – including dinosaurs. Once back at your at the zoo you must expand the tourist attraction to bring in extra cash, before throwing disco parties to get you animal and visitors strutting their funky stuff.…

Split-screen puzzler Dual Survivor will pit your thumbs against each other

Before you read any further, we have a challenge for you: Rub your stomach and pat your head at the same time. No, really. We can wait. Did you struggle with that? Well, then you'll have some understanding of the challenge Rising Step's new game Dual Survivor has in store for you. You see, the goal of the sci-fi puzzler is to guide two separate energy cores down two separate paths. The catch is that you'll be steering both cores simultaneously with separate thumbs. This brain splitting task will start off quite simply, with two symmetrical tracks running in parallel. As the game progresses however, Dual Survivor will step up the difficulty, introducing a range of jumps, obst…
