We’re a little late with this review and that’s because you need to get a group of players together for this charming little puzzle game.  Melbits World is a PlayLink title which means that while the action all happens on the PS4, the players control it via mobile phones (via an […]

Melbits World – PS4 Review


GUNGRAVE VR U.N has just released for PSVR. GUNGRAVE VR has also released (read the review here before continuing with this one) and you can buy both with the GUNGRAVE VR: Loaded Coffin Edition bundle. Think of this as a DLC add-on for GUNGRAVE VR, even though they are two […]

GUNGRAVE VR U.N – PSVR Review


GUNGRAVE VR has just released for PSVR. GUNGRAVE VR U.N has also released (read the review here) and you can buy both with the GUNGRAVE VR: Loaded Coffin Edition bundle. Based on the anime and using the PS2 titles as a framework this is another shooting game for VR, though […]

GUNGRAVE VR – PSVR Review



Arca’s Path is the debut console release from Dream Reality Interactive, a London-based developer staffed by ex-Sony coders and is a PSVR title that isn’t exactly easy to classify. On the face of it, it shares common traits with Super Monkey Ball. You view the action from behind and have […]

Arca’s Path – PSVR Review


Having recently reviewed the remaster containing the original three Spyro games when another remaster of a platformer arrived in the PlayStation Country mailbox I volunteered my services. Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Misson: Las Vegum was released on the PS2 back in 2006, the Xbox 360 was already in people’s […]

Asterix & Obelix XXL2 – PS4 Review


While you rarely see split-screen, competitive shoot ’em ups – indeed we can only recall SNK’s Twinkle Star Sprites as an example – there is something comforting and familiar about Rival Megagun, the latest release from Vancouver’s Spacewave Software. Right from the off the game wears its retro influences on […]

Rival Megagun – PS4 Review



This particular reviewer is partial to quirky retro-tinged games and indie curios, so it’s with a little alarm we find ourselves reviewing Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics, a board game conversion from UK devshop Auroch Digital. Simply described in press releases as a Lovecraftian turn-based strategy game, we don’t have much to […]

Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – PS4 Review


In 2018, the vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up, a genre that once dominated the videogaming scene, is something of a niche type of game and this port of a 1997 Sega Saturn conversion of a 1995 Japanese coin-op is a particularly odd choice for a PS4 release but here we are […]

Game Tengoku: CruisinMix – PS4 Review


Brought back from the brink, the Darksiders franchise once belonged to THQ (RIP). The franchise (and THQ’s name) were bought up by Nordic Games and ex-members of Vigil Games (developers of the first two Darksiders games) formed Gunfire Games and have created Darksiders III. Whilst the first two titles were […]

Darksiders III – PS4 Review



Console strategy games are still something I tread carefully around. I’m never really sure how developers will approach it, how much multitasking will be required and, unfortunately for me, I can rarely stay coordinated. Thankfully, Romino Games are trying to keep things compact and easy to follow with Sword and […]

Swords and Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon – PS4 Review


Old-school arcade genres are always popular with indie developers and so Crazyant games have teamed up with prolific PSN publishers Ratalaika Games to give us I Am The Hero which is a take on the side-scrolling beat ’em up genre and it is out now for PS4 and Vita as a […]

I Am The Hero – PS4 Review


As online games with survival mechanics go, very few licenses can apply themselves better than the world of Fallout. The gaunt, state-sized wastelands devastated by decades of post nuclear decay make an excellent staging point for this kind of title. Especially when considering that Fallout is a franchise that covets […]
