Blazblue has a pedigree. Starting life in 2008 as an alternative to Arc System Work’s previous Guilty Gear, it has been a series known for beautifully drawn sprites, frantic action and excellent character design. There is very little to dislike with this series as it has managed to stay at […]

From Woblyware comes a new Metroidvania style game in the form of Omega Strike. It’s got retro visuals, it’s got chiptune music, but it does bring some gameplay ideas to the table. Dr Omega is attempting to take over the world with his army of mutants. It’s up to three […]

In the age of wanting more, it’s hard to reason how a Bomberman game can exist as a full priced retail release. When Super Bomberman R first launched, it did so as a Nintendo Switch title, with the sticker shock that came with being an early game on the platform. […]

Agony – PS4 Review

Shape of the World is a difficult game to review given its meditative qualities. On the one hand, it sets out to do exactly what the developer Stu Maxwell (AKA Hollow Tree Games) had in mind. That is to evoke his local park in videogame form and the relaxing qualities […]

ONRUSH- PS4 Review

Milanoir from Italian developer Italo Games based in, yup, Milan is a gritty homage to classic 1970s crime films. The press release namechecks the cult crime films Caliber 9 and Almost Human as references. We guess they were bigger in their homeland than outside Italy though as we hadn’t heard […]

Milanoir – PS4 Review

This update of the 2016 PC title Riddled Corpses is a cross-buy title for PS4 and Vita that would give you cirrhosis of the liver if there was a drinking game based on current trends in the indie games market.  Twin-stick shooter?  Drink!  Rogue-lite?  Drink!  Pixel graphics!  Drink!  Zombies!  DRINNNKKKKK!  But despite […]
