Review

Totally not Minas Tirith.
You have just been captured and taken, blindfolded, to a dungeon. Surely this is due to your leadership of a terrorist organization that has been trying to take down the ruthless Emperor who has innocents executed at his whim.

Review: Darklings

12 Dec 2013 0

Hubris? Fly too close to the sun? Motherf--ker, I AM the sun.
Darklings is not interested in wasting your time. Don't let its relative simplicity, its self-billing as “endless survival,” or its cheeky “insert coin” greeting on the start menu fool you—this isn't a slight game.

There's a message floatin' in the air - come from crazy horses riding everywhere.
Considering I went in knowing nothing about it, few games this year have sold me on their premise as thoroughly or quickly as Monsters Rising.

Review

You can tell it's the 80s because there's still payphones everywhere.
Adventure games were dead as disco as recently as last year, a genre that for a decade had been left to niche players like Wadjet Eye.

Why did the chicken fall from the sky? To slaughter the invader where he stood.
There is a moment in every tower defence game where several creeps just slip past the range of your towers with a sliver of health.

Crabs. Normal-sized. They are enemies. Let's move on.
Isle of Bxnes is a game out of time. Quite literally, it's an action-RPG set in what appears to be prehistoric times (though maybe there's been some sort of world-shattering something or other, and this is actually posthistory?),...

Review: MULE Returns

27 Nov 2013 0
  • iOS

All three AIs need energy. Clearly, Starbucks has a growth opportunity on the planet Irata.
MULE Returns represents an attempt to bring 1983's M.U.L.E. to a new generation, a game which merits the renaissance because it introduced effective same-device multiplayer back when the device in question...

The arrows are pointing to the most interesting choice. Do I roll the dice or go play Lords of Waterdeep?
When Owen gave me the chance to review Mr. Ludo, I accepted without any hesitation.

You'll be spotting Triforce-like figures in this title like a conspiracy theorist spots Illuminati symbols in currency.
Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a new Zelda game from Cornfox & Bros. Ltd., and if you can't get on board with that then, well, sail on.
