Excave III: Tower Of Destiny Review

There’s certainly not a shortage of ‘hack and slash’ style games available on the 3DS eShop. So it’s important to ensure that your title has something that will make it stand out. When it comes to the Excave series, it seems that developers Bergsala-Lightweight’s tactic is to release entries within quick succession. The first title and it’s sequel were both released in 2015 with the latest entry i...

Mega Man Legacy Collection Review

When it comes to iconic video game characters, there are a handful that come straight to mind – Mario, Sonic and Mega Man. All three were franchises that I was obsessed with growing up and would replay them over and over again. And while Mario has gone from strength to strength, the Mega Man franchise has not been so lucky with Capcom seemingly in no rush to release a new title. Instead, her...

Whispering Willows Review

When you think of games in the horror genre, you may think of franchises such as Resident Evil – games that lend themselves more to the gory, violent side of the genre. Whispering Willows, from Night Light Interactive takes on the other side of the spectrum, a puzzle-adventure title with a focus on building suspense. You play as Elena Elkhorn, a young girl who is searching for her missing fa...

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) Review

Who ever said that video games cannot be educational? This thought must have gone through the heads of the team over at Upper One Games at least a million times during the development of indie platformer Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna). Never Alone is a puzzle-platformer with an educational twist. The player follows the story of an Iñupiat girl named Nuna and her arctic fox companion as they go on...

Sin & Punishment Review

For many, the golden era for Nintendo was the Nintendo 64. The games were incredible, the graphics were top notch and the sheer versatility in the console’s games catalogue was unmatched. The Nintendo 64 has so many memorable, critically acclaimed games, from Banjo Kazooie to Super Mario 64, yet there were so many great adventures to be had that you could have easily missed them the first ti...

3D Gunstar Heroes Review

The first thing I said to myself when I began playing this game was “they don’t make games like this anymore.” And to an extent that’s true, but Gunstar Heroes isn’t technically a new game is it? Originally released on the SEGA Mega Drive back in 1993, developer M2 has treated the game to a 3D update for its Nintendo debut, and what a job they have done. For many deve...

Shiftlings Review

Puzzle games are all the rage at the moment so it’s not surprising to see Norwegian studio Rock Pocket Games making the jump from mobile games into the home console market. And I have to give credit where it’s due, Shiftings is an interesting concept, but it’s unfortunately one that never reaches its full potential. Shiftlings sees you control two rather dim witted aliens who are attached to...

Nihilumbra Review

Announced way back in August 2013, Nihilumbra has finally managed to make its way to the Wii U’s Nintendo eShop. Originally developed for iOS, Nihilumbra has made the transition to other touch screen-based devices such as PS Vita, but don’t let that put you off as it has an unique aesthetic that’s worth checking out. Nihilumbra is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer that follows t...
