Undead Horde 2 is a top-down strategy/hack and slash mash up from Finnish studio 10TonsLtd and if you’ve ever read our reviews of their games, you’ll know that we’re huge fans of their work.  The game is, of course, the follow-up to their 2020 original, a game that we liked […]

Wobbledogs: Console Edition comes to us on PS4 from developer Animal Uprising and publisher Secret Mode (aka Sumo Digital’s publishing arm), having released on Steam in March last year. This reviewer decided to have a go as our kid seemed to have enjoyed it on PC. At least until he […]

Laserpitium is a 2D horizontally-scrolling shoot ’em that comes to us from one of the more prolific publishers in the genre, eastasiasoft, and was created by French studio, The ReeTeam.  They have a long record of making low budget indie shooters that mostly ended up on Steam but this appears […]

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is a chip off a very familiar block. I’m not sure how I feel about the term ‘boomer shooter’ but it is accurate in conveying a very specific first-person experience. I’m not a fan of the fiction but the setting certainly lends itself perfectly to a no-nonsense, […]

Herodes is a 2D horizontally-scrolling shoot ’em up from Brazilian indie studio TecnoloGils.  It does the old bit of putting you into a microscopic ship and injecting you into a human who is suffering from some sort of deadly disease.  We’ve seen the concept before in games like Viva Ex Vivo […]

Dicey Dungeons is a game we’ve been peripherally aware of for quite a while due to following Niamh Houston aka Chipzel on Musk’s hellsite. That’s off the back of her contribution to Chime Sharp. Man, we love Chime Sharp almost as much as we loved Chime on the 360 and […]

World Championship Boxing Manager II is, as the name suggests, a boxing management simulator and it comes to us by way of Pittsburgh programming crew Mega Cat Studios, a studio that formed some twenty-five years after the original game came out. As in the original game, you play as a […]

World Championship Boxing Manager II – PS4 Review

While the 16-bit era’s biggest successes were Nintendo’s SNES and the Sega Megadrive, many gamers spent their formative years with a Commodore Amiga and, let’s admit it, a stack of pirated games on cheap floppy discs that they got from some sketchy guy who ran a computer shop that is […]

Zool Redimensioned – PS4 Review

XEL pronounced Excel, yes like the spreadsheet application, is a forced isometric perspective adventure with Metroidvania type elements. At least in terms of certain areas being inaccessible at the outset. To begin with you can’t hit anything. So you get a sword. And then you can’t open gates until you […]

Timing is everything with sports titles and TT Isle of Man : Ride on the Edge 3 has managed to land right in the middle of the road racing season. With the marquee event mere weeks away, Raceward Studios has produced a challenging and rewarding racer that makes the Isle […]

Wild Dogs is a 2D run and gun shooter from Brazilian coders 2nd Boss. Sporting a deliberate four-colour Gameboy/NES aesthetic and taking most, but not all, of its gameplay cues from Contra, this is as old-school as it gets but that’s not to say that Wild Dogs doesn’t have a […]
