Maneater is a mid-budget shark ’em up from US-based devs Tripwire Interactive who are best known for their Killing Floor titles.  Set in the fictional locale that is Port Clovis, you play as a shark who is looking to dominate the waters as the local apex predator while also hunting down the man […]

For the past few years there’s only been one show in town when it comes to a licenced Major League Baseball game on consoles. Literally in this case, MLB The Show 2020 being the current iteration. So if you’re a developer who wants to produce a baseball game you have […]

Super Mega Baseball 3 – PS4 Review


It would be a bit remiss to state that first person shooters have been ignored in recent years. It is by far the most dominant method of play and has been such since the late nineties, with technological leaps and developer focus lending itself to a whole host of innovation, […]

Ion Fury – PS4 Review



In Concept Destruction from Spanish indie dev Thinice by way of Ratalaika, we have a rare PS4 only release for this publisher. Though we didn’t try to download it on our Vita this time. Sadly it seems the developer had attempted to port this to Vita, but it simply wasn’t […]

Be careful what you wish for. Upon reviewing Reed Remastered from Pxlink we said we hoped that Ratalaika would bring us the sequel too. Here we are a few months later with Reed 2. At first we thought we’d made a terrible mistake. More accurately, once we hit level twelve […]

Reed 2 – PS4 Review


When a game comes in from Finnish publishers Ratalaika Games, we usually know what to expect.  And that is a platinum trophy within thirty minutes.  But Thy Sword is that rarest of unicorns, a Rata joint where you have to put some time in.  Obstensibly, this is a rogue-lite platformer/hack and slasher […]

Pixel Ripped 1995 is the sequel to Pixel Ripped 1989. I never played the original but both are VR titles and both share a similar theme of playing a game within the game. As the titles suggest this new game takes place in a different time period and as such […]

Pixel Ripped 1995 – PSVR Review


Invader Studios have certainly tattooed an influence firmly on Daymare 1998. The title screen, gameplay and tone take huge nods towards Capcom’s Resident Evil series. Indeed, this project originally began as a fan-made remake of Resident Evil 2. It just about gets away with it being a loving homage but […]

Daymare 1998 – PS4 Review


We’re not sure where Eastasiasoft are finding all these games but they’ve managed to continue their recent run of quirky shoot ’em ups.  Task Force Kampas is a vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up which has plenty in common with those recent Eastasiasoft releases (Null Drifter, Red Death and Rainbows, Toilets and […]

Task Force Kampas – PS4 Review



I’ve come around to the idea of rogue-likes, though I prefer a rogue-lite if I’m honest, I like to see some sort of progression. It’s taken some classics to convince me that losing your progress every time you fail isn’t always a bad thing but that means newcomers have a […]

I don’t know many people who don’t enjoy the John Wick series of films. If you like action then that’s basically all you get with just enough plot to have a reason to keep more movies coming. John Wick Hex is a rare thing these days in that it’s a […]

John Wick Hex – PS4 Review


As Ripley once said to the crew of the Sulaco, I’ll tell you what I know.  Spuds Unearthed is a PSVR, Move-mandatory title that is best described as a mix of turret shooter, tower defence and MOBA.  Each stage is a battleground with your base at one end and the enemy’s base […]
