As far as game names go, Hex Tunnel by specialist VR devs Owlgorithm, is right on the nose as all of the game’s seven stages are set in hexagon-shaped tunnels that you have to traverse in order to “master the elements and become a supreme being” and so it’s up to […]

Hex Tunnel – PSVR Review

We’ve always been fascinated by the output from Finnish devs, 10TonsLtd.  They started out on PSN by putting out pretty basic physics puzzlers like Tennis in the Face before upping their game with a series of roguelikes and twin-stick shooters that showed real progress and maturity.  However, it is easy to […]

PlayStation Country Podcast – Episode #57

The platforming genre has been seeing a bit of a shot in the arm recently. While the AAA development space has all but ignored the genre as a risky write off, Indies have kept it alive as some sort of Frankenstein-ish experiment. This has led to some impressive titles such […]

Shiny – PS4 Review

Okay, transparency time. I never played Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds. If you feel that makes my opinion invalid then feel free to stop reading. For those who aren’t aware Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms is a direct continuation of the story from Kyoto Winds. Both are visual novels set in Japan in the […]

Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms – Vita Review

From The Munky comes Drunkn Bar Fight, a PSVR title that does exactly what it says on the tin. You’ll need two Move controllers to act as your fists and then you’re ready to ruin everyone else’s night. You may or may not have seen footage of Drunkn Bar Fight […]

Drunkn Bar Fight – PSVR Review

On the face of it, Way Of The Passive Fist is a short lived novelty that should outstay its welcome quicker than the smirk disappears from your face as you possibly laugh at the reference to the classic ’80s game Way Of The Exploding Fist. Thankfully that turns out not […]

Way of the Passive Fist – PS4 Review

I never played any of the previous Scribblenauts games on DS or otherwise, so this was my first foray into this amusing world. In a departure from previous titles, the developer has opted to go with a party based approach for Scribblenauts: Showdown. This naturally lends itself to playing with […]

Scribblenauts: Showdown – PS4 Review

Over the past year, this job’s given me the opportunity to dive deep into Asian horror. A genre that offers it’s own set of trappings, the Eastern flavour seems to focus more on psychology rather than gore and relentless pressure. Red Candle Games offered up their own attempt last year […]

Detention – PS4 Review

For one of the most spectacular races in motorsport, the Isle of Man TT doesn’t get much attention in games. Maybe the challenge of rendering 37 miles of Manx country road is too huge a task but, step forth Kylotonn. The WRC7 developers are now turning their hand to road […]

TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge – ...

As soon as Metal Gear Survive was announced, there was blood in the water. The departure of Hideo Kojima from the franchise left a bad taste in the mouths of fans and Konami’s idea of following up the critically acclaimed stealth franchise with a Zombie led survival title certainly did […]

Metal Gear Survive – PS4 Review

Midnight Deluxe is a very understated puzzle game from Ratalaika Games and it offers 70 screens of physics-based puzzle action on both PS4 and Vita.  Each level is a single screen affair that sees you controlling a small white square (apparently a fairy named ‘Midnight’) who has to get across the […]
