Ponpu from developer Purple Tree and publisher Zordix is a classic example of never judge a book by its cover. Similarly, never judge Lethal Weapon by Danny Glover. On the face of it, Ponpu is yet another PS4 indie game. What sets it apart is the execution. It’s all very […]

Ponpu – PS4 Review

Our man Mike reviewed the PS4 iteration of this not that long ago, back in September in fact. We were hoping he’d follow up with the PS5 launch redux, but it wasn’t to be as he didn’t manage to snag a console yet. As luck would have it, I was […]

WRC 9 FIA World Rally Championship – PS5 Review

I don’t tend to see a lot of brawlers these days. Sometimes it’s a genre that’s tough to get right but we’ve seen with the River City Ransom revivals and Steets of Rage recent return that there’s an audience for a good punch-up. Paw Paw Paw is the latest indie […]

Paw Paw Paw – PS4 Review

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is what Sonic Team do now instead of, you know, Sonic games.  Puyo Puyo™ Tetris® 2 (to use Sega’s official trademark acknowledgements) is a sequel to 2014’s fantastic puzzle game that straddles two titans of the arcade puzzle genre. This reviewer played the first game to […]

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 – PS5 Review

Rusty Spout Rescue Adventure is an indie puzzler from Thai-based coders 7 Ravens Studio and a game that revisits a classic game format from years past.  Any reader over the age of twenty who is reading this, will have seen from the screenshots that this is pretty much a Puzzle Bobble/Bust-A-Move clone.  […]

Rusty Spout Rescue Adventure – PS4 Review

Another day, another indie title. This one comes from Ninja Rabbit studios. Micetopia is a fairly simple tale of a mouse called Rich. He’s one of the few villagers left after monsters have taken some of the other residents hostage. With a sword in hand, our little hero has two […]

Micetopia – PS4 Review

I haven’t played Enter the Gungeon, Richie reviewed it for us. I’ve not played much anyway, I did play a tiny amount just to get a feel before this review but apart from the obvious change in perspective I can’t comment on differences. I have played quite a bit of […]

Exit the Gungeon – PS4 Review

2018’s Spider-Man was one of the best PS4 exclusives.  Sure, it played much like all of the open-world Spider-Man games (which is to say all of them since 2004’s Spider-Man 2) but it was executed perfectly.  For the record, we gave it an 8 but if I’d taken that review […]

Spider-Man: Miles Morales – PS5 Review

Remnant: From the Ashes does stick in my memory as a highlight of the now last generation. At times it was frustrating and it’s main gimmick of randomised events didn’t always work in its favour but the gunplay was fun and discovering the different events was rewarding. At the time […]

Chronos: Before the Ashes – PS4 Review

I, AI is a vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up from Satur Games who previously brought us the sophisticated twin-sticker Stellatum.  Much like its predecessor, this is a game with a focus on upgrading but is a much simpler affair to understand. After a brief bit of plot that explains that you are a rogue […]

I, AI – PS4 Review

It is no secret at this stage that Sony have a bit of a mascot crisis on their hands. Through the generations, this has been particularly tricky for them to pin down. Firstly, it was argued that Crash Bandicoot was the Sonic and Mario killer, that was until Activision hoovered […]

Sackboy: A Big Adventure – PS5/PS4 Review

Sometimes I’m in the mood for some bite-sized and simple. More Dark by HugePixel fits that bill. With dozens of relatively quick puzzles, this teaser looks to put players’ problem solving to the test. With a couple of tricks up its sleeve, this cheap platformer is enjoyable to play through […]
