The Swapper – Review

The Swapper – Review

Developed by Finnish studio, Facepalm Games The Swapper is a smart but patronizingly simple side-scrolling puzzle game. The Swapper pits you, the gamer, as a generic spaceman that crash lands on a mysterious but seemingly populated planet. The plot, if you read into it is actually quite menacing. The planet is inhabited by hordes of murderous telepathic rocks. Yup, rocks. Erm… I’m not ...[Read More]

Aaru’s Awakening – Review

Aaru’s Awakening – Review

If I had to summarise Aaru’s Awakening in one word it would be “beautiful”. Not just aesthetically, but emotionally as well. The storyline, the graphics, the style and the characters are just so well thought and well designed that you’ll instantly be pulled into the world and gripped within moments. From the get go, the narration of an endless battle between four gods; Dawn...[Read More]

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 – Review

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 – Review

What started as a brilliant way to distract yourself from either your homework, your boss, your partner, awkward arguments with the in-laws, the smelly old cat-lady at the bus stop and much, much, much more, in 2011 came to our beloved Xbox 360s as Fruit Ninja Kinect. Following it’s great success and the fan base of the well loved, aussies Halfbrick Studios, the guys behind possibly the best...[Read More]

Project Root – Review

Project Root – Review

“Shmup”, I quiver when ever I hear the word. More commonly known as a “shoot ‘em up”, Project Root is that latest title from OPQAM. Never heard of them? Nah, neither had I. With less than 350 likes on their Facebook page, OPQAM could quite possibly be the smallest developer we’ve ever worked with. So what is Project Root? Yes, it’s a shoot ‘em up, bu...[Read More]

Battlefield Hardline – Review

Battlefield Hardline – Review

Okay, okay, okay! I know, we’re a little late with this review. Truth is, we’ve been having so much fun playing Hardline, we’ve not had a chance to write the review. Better late than never, right? It’s fair to say that Hardline has had a pretty rough ride so far. It started by being leaked before it’s intended announcement during E3 2014. After that, there was a contr...[Read More]

The Escapists – Review

The Escapists – Review

It’s kinda like that TV show Prison Break, mixed with Pokémon on the Gameboy. Yup, that’s it! Hailing from (the fairly unheard of) Mouldy Toof Studios, comes a brand new take on breaking out of prison, The Escapists. The official description of the game reads; All that stands between you and your freedom is a perfectly executed escape plan. The Escapists provides players the opportunit...[Read More]

White Night is a narrative-driven, third-person survival horror game set in the jazz/noir-era in Boston during the late 1930s.

The player is tasked with investigating a shadowy mansion in the grim night after a ...[Read More]

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires – Review

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires – Review

It’s been at least seven or eight years, if not more since I last played a Dynasty Warriors game. I remember spending days on end playing the DW games with my friends, during the summer holidays. This was a time long before my days of the Xbox 360 began. This was way back on the PlayStation 2! Since then, a lot has changed and I can only begin to tell you how excited I was when it was announ...[Read More]
