Snakeybus – Review

Indie arcade bus simulator snake crazy taxi Sega game

Snake meets Crazy Taxi, as a core concept its pretty damn engaging. You play an evergrowing bus, smashing through bus-stops and picking up passengers until you’re full, then hurtling straight to their destination. As you grow, the map gets more and more difficult to navigate and if you stop moving, game over. Snakeybus is deceptive […]

Wailing Heights – PC Review

Wailing Heights by indie developers Outsider Games is essentially what would happen if you merged Transylvanian monsters, 60s-70s rock music, and comic books together into one entity. Wailing Heights has a sort of cool, Scooby-Doo vibe to it that brings me back to when I was a kiddo, watching cartoon reruns starring meddling kids and […]

Chucklefish Tactics Indie Game

Supernatural World War II adventure where you beat up Nazis while exploring Africa, the Middle East, and of course, Egypt is a specific but cherished genre of mine.

Odd Realm – Early Access Preview

Town building is one of my favourite genres. Nothing beats taming the dangerous wilderness, building a thriving townstead, delving into the great unknown, and seeing it all burn down. Sort of like a mandala but instead of sand, it’s people and their possessions. The latest town builder in my line-up is Odd Realm by Unknown […]

Yoku’s Island Express Review

Yoku’s Island Express is available for PC and Switch. We reviewed the PC version. Pinball platformer. Pinball. Platformer. Platball? Pinformer? It sounds weird no matter which way you say it but y’know what? Yoku’s Island Express works and it looks damn pretty doing it. In Yoku’s Island Express, you will mostly be pinballing with the platforming playing second fiddle […]
