Ayo the Clown Review

A clown wouldn’t have been our first choice to front a new platformer. But we suppressed our squeamishness and gave this one a go. We know: we’re so brave.  Ayo the Clown is a lavish platformer that, if you did a spot of…

Thunder Kid: Hunt for the Robot Emperor Review

Looks can be deceptive. The game art and description for Thunder Kid: Hunt for the Robot Emperor do a good job of whetting your appetite for an epic adventure. A generic but high stakes backstory sets the scene, however that’s…

Masked Ninja Action Review

Those no-achievement games that appear on the Xbox Store are getting a bit big for their britches. Not only have three released over the past week (no doubt we will get to reviewing them all eventually), but they are raising…

Ryan’s Rescue Squad Review

I had the knives sharpened, ready to chop Ryan’s Rescue Squad into tiny little pieces. It was going to be my revenge for subjecting me to years of Youtube hell. Of all the ‘internet personalities’ that my two daughters end up…

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek Review

Buff the magnifying glasses and clear the notebooks, it’s hidden object time!  The ever-prolific Artifex Mundi are here with their latest blend of adventuring and item-rummaging. This time round, it’s the beginning of a…

Istanbul: Digital Edition Review

Like Monster Couch and Nomad Games, Acram Digital have taken it upon themselves to bring popular board games to the digital space. Having tackled classics like Catan and Concordia, their next stop has taken them to Istanbul.…

Hidden Shapes: Animals + Lovely Cats Review

As someone with no patience, there’s always room for the ‘grazing game’; the one that I can spin up for ten to fifteen minutes at a time. Perhaps Elden Ring is taking an age to download, or I’ve calculated roughly fifteen minutes…

Boreal Tenebrae Review

Boreal Tenebrae is a strange one indeed. A polished low-poly game looking like a remaster originally from the 32-bit era. These will be your first thoughts as you begin the game, before you settle into the weirdness and insanity…
