Cult of the Lamb Review: Worship like a baa-ass

August 11, 2022

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who already have a real life army of followers dedicated to praising their glory, and those who simply fantasise about it. I’ll leave it to your imagination as to which camp I’m in, but why let cult dreams be dreams when you can act out […]

Trek to Yomi Review: A stylish, samurai showdown

May 6, 2022

I’ve often been drawn to the various samurai films of the 20th century. From director Akira Kurosawa’s classics like The Hidden Fortress and Seven Samurai, to the ultra violent Shogun Assassin, there’s a sense of grace and simplicity to be found amongst the many stories of revenge and redemption. As a result, it’s no secret […]

Carrion Review: This hideous beast will devour us all

July 26, 2020

Carrion is a new Metroidvania game from indie developer Phobia Game Studio. You are fast-moving, utterly vicious monster on the loose in a remote science facility. Carrion delights in taking the tropes of the genre — power creep, exploration and backtracking — and turning them on their ear in ways that are surprisingly effective. One […]

My Friend Pedro Review: Tony Hawk’s Pro Shooter

July 21, 2019

My Friend Pedro plays almost exactly like an old Xbox game called Total Overdose, which is to say that it sits somewhere between Max Payne and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. It’s a game about stylish murder, one that teaches you to look for ways to make the most of your carnage. It rewards effective play, […]

Observation Shines as an Original and Intriguing Space Adventure

May 22, 2019

I’ll be the first to admit it, I’ve never played a game like Observation before. While games of this nature have great examples in Night Trap and Manhunt, both of which use surveillance cameras as a narrative device to push the story forward, the introduction of an AI-based character is a wholly original way to tell […]

Ape Out Review: Guns, gore and gorillas

February 28, 2019

Ape Out is not a terribly long game, but it is a fun one. It’s an entertaining and creative riff on the format popularised by Hotline Miami, a barbarous explosion of violence that belies its more rhythm-based gameplay. You play an angry, caged gorilla ready to throw off the shackles of oppression and embark on […]

Games Review: Pikuniku‘s charming visuals mask a surprisingly sinister adventure

January 28, 2019

Pikuniku is an absurd, charming little game from the folks at Devolver Digital, and one that is absolutely fascinating. Styled after the whimsical platformer titles of the PS2 era like Loco Roco and Katamari Damacy, Pikuniku follows the struggles of a little red blob as he awakens in a strange land filled with shiny, happy […]

Video Games Review: STRAFE (PC, 2017) is a loving ode to Quake, but creaks under the weight of its ambition

May 25, 2017

Strafe is a bloody-minded combination of FPS and rogue-like that seeks to place you firmly in a time machine and return you to mid 90’s, the era when Quake was the new king of the burgeoning genre. Strafe recalls an era when shooters were breathless, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experiences. You were always moving, always shooting, never resting. Where 2016’s excellent DOOM reboot […]
