The second of the Morbid series, Morbid: The Lords of Ire opts to delve into a more specific arena. Still Running have decided to give a souls-like a go and, for the most part, it does a competent job. It lacks some polish but there’s a couple of interesting ideas […]

Turbo Golf Racing is a sports/driving game from Manchester-based devs Hugecalf Studios.  Initially released in 2022 on PC, the game has found its way over to consoles but benefits from already having a large player base thanks to it all being cross-platform. But what is it?  Well, the lazy explanation […]

Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER is a point and click visual novel from developer MidBoss and publisher Chorus Worldwide. It’s a sequel to 2017’s 2064: Read Only Memories that our man Steven reviewed way back when. Unlike the two-year delay between the PC and PS4 versions, all versions of Neurodiver released […]

Mystic Pillars Remastered is a puzzle game by Holy Cow Productions. Originally, it saw the light of day on PC in 2020. I’ll admit the remastered tag seems a tad generous but this thoughtful effort kept my brain in gear whilst turning me on a little towards Indian culture and […]

It’s not every day I have to write something that feels like a public service announcement. Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is game developed by Slipgate Ironworks and KillPixel. It came out on PC in February after a long and protracted early access phase and has now found it’s way to […]

A Tale of Paper: Reloaded, as the name suggests is a re-release of October 2020’s A Tale of Paper, only rather than PS4 as the original was, it’s on PS5 this time. We didn’t review it the first time round, but it garnered reasonable reviews. To further complicate matters, the […]

Space Mercenary Defense Force is a survivors-like from UK dev, Tom Paradise, and is published by the super-prolific eastasiasoft.  We’ve reviewed a ton of these recently, including eastasiasoft’s own Stickman’s Arena which, like most of them, was kind of garbage.  So, what does this one bring to the party? Well, the […]

Contra: Operation Galuga is a run and gun shooter that continues the legacy of the long running Contra series, one that started in the arcades of Japan in 1987, and brings it to modern consoles.  Not that the series has ever gone that many years without a new entry.  But, anyway, […]

From Gateshead based boutique developer Bunnyhug and co-located publisher Coatsink we have Moonglow Bay. Originally released on PC and Xbox in 2021, it’s made the leap to PlayStation. Was it worth the wait? For the most part yes, but with a few caveats. Incidentally, Bunnyhug is Sasketchawan slang for a […]

Going to arcades these days is a very weird experience. In my child brain I still think I’m going to find games I’ll recognise there. I’m very often mistaken and a little disappointed. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade: Wrath of the Mutants is, as luck would have it, a port […]
