Super Destronaut DX is the latest effort from the oddly prolific Finnish dev crew Ratalaika Games who are starting to create a very odd niche in the indie gaming sphere. This particular title is their take on the grandaddy of them all, Space Invaders, and while it’s fundamentally different to their […]

Super Destronaut DX – PS4/Vita Review


Although Kart racers seem to be quite simple on paper in terms of design, I am sure there is a lot more to it than simply plonking a bunch of characters into colourful worlds and recording a few woo-hoo’s for the entirety of the voice track. It’s safe to say […]

All-Star Fruit Racing – PS4 Review



Destruction is still something heavily sought after in gaming. Most environments are indestructible, and understandably so. Even beyond processing power, level design goes out the window if you can literally level the entire map.

Kona VR – PSVR Review



While any arcade puzzle title that isn’t Tetris tends to feel like a bit of a Johnny Come Lately kind of effort, it’s easy to forget that Lumines has been around as a series since 2004. Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s music-laden take on the falling blocks type of puzzler has had quite a few outings […]

Lego Star Wars back on the PS2 has a lot to answer for. Back in 2005, Traveller’s Tales’ eureka moment was a genuinely fresh spin on the licenced film adaptation. It certainly helped that it was a Star Wars game for sure, but it started the ball rolling on the […]

LEGO® The Incredibles – PS4 Review


A year on from an original PC release, Fabraz’s devilish platformer finds its way to current consoles with this updated release.
