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 […]

Pathway – Review

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. The clear cut, heroes and villains that Nazis and eldritch abominations provide just makes for such a fun time. No need for moral quandaries, just swing from […]

The amount of content already in place in Wildermyth is enough to play for hours and still not see it all. […]

Wordsy – Review

Formal Ferret Games, Wordsy, Word Game

I work with words all day every day. I study creative writing at university so Wordsy seems like a game I would kick butt at but no! Apparently not! Apparently when I’m put on a timer my brain will throw the mental dictionary out the window and scream. And I love it. Wordsy has you […]

Holmes Sherlock & Mycroft – Review

Boardgame card game sherlock

“In February 1895, London woke up to a loud bang. A large pillar of smoke showed that a bomb had exploded in the Houses of Parliament. Security forces were activated immediately and they arrested a suspicious young laborer near the area. Mycroft Holmes, at the service of the crown, was commissioned to investigate the relationship […]

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 […]
