This reviewer has their comfort zone, typically we go for quirky indie platformers or puzzle games that are best suited to short gameplay bursts. But occasionally it’s nice to push your boundaries and play something a bit different. To wit, FIA European Truck Racing Championship from developer N-1 Racing by […]

FIA European Truck Racing Championship – PS4 Review

Hoggy2 is the sequel to a game we had no idea even existed until Ratalaika sent it to us for review. Yet it all seems very familiar despite that. The titular Hoggy is an amorphous blob that doesn’t remind us of Kirby in the slightest, oh no. His continuing mission […]

Hoggy2 – PS4 Review

When I first saw Songbird Symphony being advertised on the PlayStation YouTube channel, I couldn’t help but be reminded of a section in the classic Mega Drive (Genesis for those who are wrong) game, Ristar. For those that managed to breach past the lava world, they were greeted with a […]

Songbird Symphony – PS4 Review

Mochi Mochi Boy is the latest from Ratalaika Games. It shares a developer in common with fairly recent release Super Weekend Mode in solo coder Pixel Teriyaki. It also has look and feel in common with Super Weekend Mode, sharing many graphical assets. Thankfully gameplay is different in this case […]

Just under eight months after the main game came out the second paid DLC has released for Darksiders III (read our original review here). Keepers of the Void introduces a puzzle heavy area of the game, providing new enemies, bosses, four new sub-weapons and the reward of a unique looking […]

Darksiders III – Keepers of the Void DLC – PS4 ...

Given that Sony’s track record of backing their own hardware side projects is sketchy at best (PSTV, anyone), we’re pleased to see that they’ve continued to support PSVR and we’re even more pleased that the games coming out for it are branching out of the usual turret shooters and horror […]

After Attack of the Toy Tanks by Petite Games by way of Ratalaika just over a week ago, comes Bouncy Bullets from the same developer, also published by Ratalaika Games. Perhaps next week we’ll get a game beginning with C? At any rate, what we have here is a 3D […]

It only feels like five minutes since we were reviewing Snooker Nation Championship which was one of two snooker titles to come out in close succession earlier this year. While it lacked the licensed players and venues, we found it to be more fun than Snooker 19 but we did […]

PSN isn’t exactly short of 16-bit style shooters and so it can be hard to get too hyped about one but Blazing Chrome by Brazilian coding shop JoyMasher is one such game that has gained some attention recently thanks to a decent trailer and what appears to be a fairly authentic […]

Blazing Chrome – PS4 Review

New Star Games’ New Star Soccer was maybe the last iOS game that really hooked me in.  I spent the sort of time on it that when I uninstalled it, it was mainly to get my life back.  The follow up, New Star Manager, took some of the concepts of the original and […]

The 2019 Tour De France pushes off this coming Saturday July 6th in Brussels. Yes, we know that’s in Belgium. But anyway. As if on cue, we have a review for the tie-in videogame from Cyanide Studio by way of their parent publisher Big Ben Interactive. Our man Mike reviewed […]

Tour De France 2019 – PS4 Review

Sometimes a game comes along that is so simple in terms of execution of concept, it hardly needs any further explanation. From small developer Petite Games by way of publisher Ratalaika Games comes Attack of the Toy Tanks. The title alone says it all. You play a solo toy tank […]
