REVIEW – Coloring Book + DLC (Switch)

Limiting Your Inner Artist Released as a free-to-start free app on the Switch eShop, Coloring Book is just that – a digital coloring book. Even though this program doesn’t cost anything, the limited options and scope of overall design won’t hold your attention unless you are under six years old. The user is free to …

REVIEW – Nidhogg 2 (Switch)

Now on Switch In mid-2018, Nidhogg 2 made its way onto Xbox One; Nidhogg 1 was a PS3/Vita exclusive. Now, Messhof has ported their tug-o-war fencer to Switch. For a full review of the Xbox One version, check out my review HERE. Thing is, this Switch version plays exactly like the Xbox/PS4 version only without …

REVIEW – Distrust (PS4)

Insane From The Pain Inspired by The Thing, Distrust is mostly about surviving harsh conditions in a frozen wasteland. Not only will you need to scavenge for supplies, the player also has to worry about not freezing, staving hunger, and not going insane. In fact, Distrust plays more like a real time strategy game mixed …

REVIEW – R-Type Dimensions EX (Switch) Review

Dying With A Smile Several years ago, R-Type Dimensions was released on the Xbox Live Arcade then ported to PS3 about a year later. You can read my PS3 review of R-Type Dimensions here.

REVIEW – Escape Doodland (Switch)

Running Away QubicGames is making a name for themselves by releasing several mediocre runner games over the last couple years. For comparison, check out 2Fast4Gnomz, Geki Yaba Runner Deluxe, Jumping Joe and Friends, and even Bouncy Bob (SONKA). Escape Doodland is another runner game, this time originally developed and kickstarted by the small team at …

REVIEW – Steel Rats (PS4)

Grind Your Gears Steel Rats essentially takes all the elements of your favorite motorcycle and racing games and merges them into one. Take the racing element of ExciteBike, mix it with the balancing and tricks of Trials, and throw in some weaponry from Twisted Metal, and then place it all in a gritty Mad Max-like …

REVIEW – Save Me Mr. Tako! (Switch)

Old School To A Fault Save Me Mr. Tako! is basically a new original Gameboy game to a fault. The visuals and soundtrack are nostalgic and charming but suffers from being too simple with gameplay elements that lack basic housekeeping features. Playing as an octopus, the player is tasked with trying to stop a war …

REVIEW – Astebreed (PS4/Switch)

A New Perspective Originally released in 2015 on PS4, Astebreed is now being ported to Switch here in 2018. Even though this 2.5D shooter is a few years old, don’t let that distract you as this is one fast paced bullethell. This isn’t a typical shooter as the main gimmick is the ever changing perspective. …

REVIEW – Paw Patrol: On A Roll (Xbox One)

Puppy Rescue Heroes Designed for pre-schoolers who are fans of the Nickelodeon TV show, Paw Patrol: On a Roll is a licensed game parents will probably buy for their youngster regardless. Luckily, what’s here is something any four or five year old, beginning gamers, will enjoy. If I had to summarize Paw Patrol in one …

REVIEW – Heavy Fire: Red Shadow (Xbox One)

Stationary FPS The Heavy Fire series has seen several releases on numerous platforms for almost a decade now. Heavy Fire: Red Shadow is the latest game in this series and is a stationary first-person shooter as opposed to the more on-rails presentation of the other titles. Although it provides some mindless entertainment in short bursts, …
