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.

REVIEW – Zarvot – A Game About Cubes (Switch)

What’s A Zarvot? Zarvot isn’t your typical action arcade title. Playing as a simple cube with a ton of personality, the single player campaign is a charming, yet ridiculous outing set in a realistic metropolitan environment… only each character is a block and there are enemies to shoot. Zarvot is one of those games you …
