I ain’t as bluntly violent as a Frank Miller gig, but a silhouette’s noir both figuratively and literally.
Taken together, the loose intellectual property regime applied to game mechanics and the caution which results from high development costs mean that originality is precious to reviewers, and often...

If you've played The Room or The Room Two, you pretty much know what to expect from The Room Three. Fireproof Games hasn't altered the formula nor added anything new to the mix that could, in any context, be called daring.

Review: SPL-T

There's no reason for this image to make you question your presumptions, except this caption.
You’ve probably never wondered how to evoke existential dread with a peppy, humble abstract puzzle game. Now you never need to--adding “by Simogo” after the name turns out to be perfect.

Warhammer: Arcane Magic does something that I wish more Games Workshop titles would do: get out of the 40K universe. The grim/dark future where there is only war is just dandy, but if I had my preference, I’d take spells and swords over boltguns and power fists.

Review

The couple were holed up in the church. Tough, to survive this long with zed everywhere, and potentially useful people. But they had kids, three of ‘em. Three more, useless, hungry mouths to feed and look after, when we need every scrap of spare food to keep the Rifts and...

Review: The Guides

If a clue is more obscure than the puzzle spoiled, that's okay, right?
When reviewing a game which consists of a series of obscure clues and simple cryptography challenges which gradually reveal a still-sketchy story, I owe my readers a confession: I've never played a Simogo game.

A just war, indeed.
One of the earliest reviews I penned for PT was the bluntly-titled Strategy: Rome in Flames. Strategy was indeed present, and Rome was well and truly in proverbial cinders.
