Digital Eclipse are showing themselves to be masterful at collating and preserving the games and stories from our industry. The second in the Gold Master Series, Llamasoft: The Jeff Minter Story focuses on the hairy visionary and mostly focuses on his prolific output during the 1980s. As a lad that […]

Taxi Life: A City Driving Simulator from Krakow-based developer Simteract and publisher Nacon is pretty much exactly what you might expect from the title. You’re a taxi driver in a city, in this case an approximation of downtown Barcelona. In a revelation that won’t shock you, you have to pick […]

The Outlast Trials is a co-op focused survival horror game from Montreal studio Red Barrels who, despite some pedigree working in the industry previously, have a softography that, so far, only includes this game and the two previous Outlast titles. Set in a Cold War-era experimental facility, The Outlast Trials, exists in the same […]

Highwater by Demagog Studio is a prequel to both 2021’s Golf Club: Wasteland and The Cub from earlier this year. This writer reviewed The Cub and found it intriguing but ultimately a little frustrating. So, it was with an initial sense of ‘here we go again’ when we first started […]

King Arthur: A Knight’s Tale is an RPG with turn-based combat and with it’s mostly top-down viewpoint is very in keeping with the rest of the software catalogue of Hungarian developers NeocoreGames given that they made all those Van Helsing games and Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor.  They’re known for combining a solid story […]

It’s been really nice seeing the explosion of retro re-releases hitting the market. I spent a lot of time as a kid playing older games and, now with the benefit of hindsight, it’s been interesting to revisit them. I’m not convinced many of the CPC games I used to play […]

I guess zombies place in media and popular culture is never going to disappear. I’ll be honest, I don’t think there’s much left to do with them that hasn’t already been thought of. Welcome to Paradize is the latest from EKO Software. It’s a survival game based around society’s failure […]

Inkulinati from Warsaw-based dev Yaza Games and publisher Daedalic is probably best described as a medieval take on a puzzle strategy game. Or as Yaza would say, “where a rabbit’s bum can be deadlier than a dog’s sword.” While not strictly true in the case of gameplay, it’s an amusing […]

Dead End City is a vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up by Dublin-based dev Thomas Schreiber otherwise known as Pixel Licker LLC and has been published by the ever-prolific eastasiasoft.  However, unlike the usual military/space settings that these games tend to use, this game has a post-apocalyptic Mad Max vibe to it […]

I am a terrible gardener. I’ve got a real habit of neglecting plants in my backyard. Gardening is simply something other people do and I just don’t have the time to devote to creating life. Gaming has me covered, though. There’s no shortage of farming or garden growing simulators. The […]

Geometry Survivor is an auto-shooter from London-based coders Brain Seal and its name really tells you know what their intentions with this game was.  Essentially it’s the latest Vampire Survivors style auto-shooting rogue-lite game to hit PSN and it borrows its aesthetic pretty heavily from Bizarre Creations’ wonderful Geometry Wars series.  That is to […]

Geometry Survivor – PS5 Review

Promenade, on the face of it, is a cutesy platformer. Just like you should never judge Lethal Weapon by Danny Glover, don’t assume Promenade is a game aimed at the younger player. Yes, it’s all pastel shades and fluffy pillow forts, but in fact it shares many traits with Metroidvania-type […]
