Night Lights is described as a 2D puzzle platformer by its devs, Montreal-based Meridian4, and that’s kind of true but we’ve seen a lot of those from Ratalaika Games, the publisher here, and this one is a bit different.  Indeed with its back-and-forth, linked-up levels, this is more of a […]

Night Lights – PS4 Review


Truth be told, I’ve not enjoyed much from the Playstation Talents initiative. Whilst these do seem to be primarily from student developers and small indie studios, there’s always been rough around the edges and fairly ramshackle in construction. To my surprise, Twogether: Project Indigos Chapter 1 manages to deliver some […]

Twogether: Project Indigos Chapter 1 – PS4 Review


Beneath a Steel Sky is a classic point and click adventure, but I’ve not played it. I do own it on Steam but when I saw Beyond a Steel Sky was made by Revolution Software as a big Broken Sword fan back in the day I had to check it […]

Beyond a Steel Sky – PS4 Review



From Swedish boutique dev ‘Something We Made’ we have Toem: A Photo Adventure. Stylised as T📷EM, it’s a black and white photography game. As you can see it’s quite lovely looking. We hoped that Toem was some kind of abstract Scandinavian concept like hygge or that smug feeling you get […]

TOEM – PS5 Review


Space Elite Force 2 in 1 is a compilation of two shoot ’em ups by Moraes Studio, a small Brazilian-based studio headed up by Alysson Moraes.  For your small sum of money you get ports of his 2018 shooter Space Elite Force and its 2020 sequel Space Elite Force II.  Both games are […]

Hindsight 20/20: The Wrath of the Raakshasa is a hack and slasher from Triple-I games, a studio founded by ex-Bioware and Sucker Punch devs.  With that kind of pedigree, you’ll be expecting something a little better than the usual indie tat that we’ve been subjected to recently on PSN and in […]

Project Zero (aka Fatal Frame) is one of the forgotten survival horror games. Coming a little after Resident Evil and Silent Hill there were three titles on the PS2 and then it kind of just disappeared. It didn’t actually cease to exist, with a Japan only title on Wii and […]

Bassmaster Fishing 2022 then. Coming to us from Dovetail Games, dev and publisher of the Train Simulator games, this is a competitive fishing game writ large as only America knows how. The back of a fag packet scribble for this is NASCAR and Sega Bass Fishing made a baby. Even […]

The first DLC for Ubisoft’s Far Cry 6 has arrived hot on the heels of the main game.  Vaas: Insanity follows everyone’s favourite Far Cry villain, Vaas Montenegro, as he takes a trip into his own psyche just after the game’s main protagonist, Jason Brody stabs him to death.  At that point, […]

Far Cry 6 – Vaas: Insanity

I can’t quite imagine living in a small rural setting. They always look kind of devoid of life and I tend to miss my home comforts. The Prince of Landis, developed by one-man team Lorestrome, is an adventure game with a small slice of that life. Landis feels like one […]

The Prince of Landis – PS5 Review


We reviewed Crysis Remastered  just over a year ago giving it a fair 8, so we were intrigued to receive Crysis Remastered Trilogy. We thought that it might be some kind of unified affair like the Master Chief Collection from those noisy neighbours in Redmond. But no, it turned out […]

Crysis Trilogy Remastered – PS4 Review


Gynoug continues Ratalaika Games recent trend of porting obscure old shoot ’em ups to modern systems.  As with their previous port, Gleylancer, this game is a horizontally-scrolling shoot ’em up that was first released in 1991 on the Sega Megadrive (American readers will know it better as Wings of Wor).  The game […]
