Disney Mirrorverse

Glen FoxJun 23, 2022
Overall, we feel pretty positive towards Disney Mirrorverse. Despite the flaws inherent with the genre, this is bristling with high production value and varies up the gameplay nicely. It’s also, honestly, just a joy to see collect your favourite Disney heroes and watch them fight alongside each other.

Pac-Man Museum+

Switch
7.00
Simon ReedJun 21, 2022
Finally Pac-Man 256 is a massively engaging isometric endless runner where you have to constantly move up the screen/maze away from a killer wave of glitches. A great high score chaser, it’s brilliant played both solo and co-operatively.

Rocky Towers

Harry SlaterJun 09, 2022
Rocky Towers has some solid ideas, and when you’re actually playing it, it’s a lot of fun. But there’s a lack of polish and balance elsewhere that keeps you from really getting into it. That’s a shame, because with a few tweaks it could be an interesting diversion. As it stands, it’s one to miss.

Dadish 3

Switch
7.00
Maria AlexanderJun 07, 2022
Dadish 3 is possibly overpriced for what it is, but if you were a fan of the last two games you can’t go wrong here – in what is the most technically accomplished entry in the series so far.

Apex Legends Mobile

9.00
Harry SlaterMay 29, 2022
Of all the battle royale games available on mobile this ranks amongst the most polished, the most well-balanced and the most entertaining. It’s a big, complex, AAA experience that’s going to leave you with a massive grin on your face. Apex Legends Mobile is well worth checking out.

Catalyst Black

Harry SlaterMay 28, 2022
Catalyst Black is an entertaining shooter, but in a lot of ways it’s going to be pretty divisive. If it clicks with you then there’s a very good chance you’re going to spend the next couple of years engrossed in its violent action. But if it doesn’t, if it all gets a bit too much early on, there’s a good chance you won’t give it a second thought.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Switch
9.00
Maria AlexanderMay 27, 2022
Overall though there’s actually very little to criticise about The Skywalker Saga. It’s a perfectly constructed love letter to a series of films that will appeal to young and old alike. The force is strong in this one.

Gibbon: Beyond the Trees

Switch
6.00
Maria AlexanderMay 17, 2022
Gibbon: Beyond the Trees is a game with a worthwhile message and well thought out mechanics – but we sadly can’t fully recommend this Switch port until the performance issues are ironed out.

King's Path Solitaire

iOS
8.00
Harry SlaterMay 12, 2022
King’s Path is one of those games that could only work on mobile, and it does so brilliantly. This is an engaging and entertaining puzzle experience that’s familiar and fresh in equal measures.

Fantasy Archer: Elven Bow

iOS
2.00
Harry SlaterMay 08, 2022
It looks like there’s more to come from the game, in the shape of skills and equipment to augment your shooting, but unless it does something to change its insistence on ads, it’s unlikely anyone is going to be that bothered.

Knotwords

AndroidiOS
10.0
Harry SlaterMay 05, 2022
There’s an elegance to Knotwords that puts it in the hallowed company of the likes of Wordle. In fact, if anything, it’s a far deeper experience than that most recent of word-based phenomena.

Monobot

iOS
8.00
Harry SlaterApr 30, 2022
Monobot has some really bright ideas, and it’s got a charm that sets it apart from plenty of the games on the App Store. There’s plenty of puzzling entertainment here, and while it doesn’t quite hit the heights, it’s still worth checking out.

Seven Mortal Sins X-TASY

iOSAndroid
8.00
Glenn WilsonApr 29, 2022
It will appeal to anybody looking for a punky presentational style, a deeply silly story, casual gameplay, and lots of risque imagery and innuendo.

Road Rewind

iOS
7.00
Harry SlaterApr 28, 2022
Road Rewind isn’t going to make you think in new ways or make anyone’s game of the year lists, but if you’re looking for something that’s going to fit into a few minutes of downtime, this car-based puzzler could well do you just fine.

Vagante

Switch
7.00
Maria AlexanderApr 24, 2022
Ultimately Vagante is no masterpiece, but it has an impressively satisfying core gameplay loop that will help this appeal to more hardened roguelike fans. Less experienced fans of the genre may want to steer clear though.

Rocket Bot Royale

iOSAndroid
6.00
Harry SlaterApr 21, 2022
Rocket Bot Royale oscillates between cheery carnage and grumpy defeat. It’s too stingy with its cash and even when you’ve got some you might spend it in vain. There’s a great game trying to push out through all of these niggles, but unless you’re willing to really grind through them it’s unlikely you’re going to find it.

Hot Lap League

AndroidiOS
8.00
Harry SlaterApr 17, 2022
Hot Lap League definitely achieves what it sets out to. It’s fast and reasonably furious, and there’s a level of challenge here – especially on the harder levels – that demands a lot from your reflexes. It’s lacking slightly in thrills and spills, but it makes up for it with those pure moments of time-based success.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Switch
8.00
Simon ReedApr 17, 2022
And in that context, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a perfect title. It likely won’t win over those who have already explored Odyssey’s vast platforming landscapes, but this is an ideal first step for those entering the world of gaming – or for those who simply want a relaxed co-operative experience with a healthy sprinkling of Nintendo magic.

Catchee

iOSAndroid
5.00
Harry SlaterApr 14, 2022
With a few tweaks Catchee could be a mesmerizing, blissful thing. As it stands, though, the gnashing teeth hiding underneath the smiles show themselves too early, and they tear away the vibe you’re getting before it’s really had a chance to take hold.

Rovio Classics: Angry Birds

iOSAndroid

Harry SlaterApr 13, 2022
Rovio Classics: Angry Birds is a blast from a not-so-distant past, when there was a heady joy to be found in touchscreen play.

Agent Intercept

Switch
4.00
Maria AlexanderApr 07, 2022
Agent Intercept boasts a number of levels across its campaign, a score attack mode, and several secrets – but the core gameplay never feels satisfying enough to keep you playing.

Slime Labs 2

iOSAndroid
7.00
Harry SlaterApr 03, 2022
Slime Labs 2 is a game that’s not about to let you off the hook. If it gets it’s slippery claws into you then you’re likely to see it through to the bitter end. But if the frustration – or the challenge – gets too much, there’s a very good chance you’ll put it down with a swear and a frown. 

Aerial_Knight's Never Yield

AndroidiOS
8.00
Harry SlaterMar 31, 2022
There are different difficult settings to explore, special levels and an endless mode, and you’re going to enjoy all of them. Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield is by no means sloppy or slap-dash, and it can be wonderfully thrilling. While you’ll leave the game smiling, you’ll also be thinking about ways it could have been even better.

The Ramp

Switch
5.00
Maria AlexanderMar 27, 2022
This means that this whole ‘just enjoy the ride’ ethos isn’t sufficiently backed up by the game’s design. It all feels like an attempt to cover up a crippling lack of content.

Hyde and Seek

iOSAndroid
7.00
Harry SlaterMar 27, 2022
Hyde and Seek sucks you in from the first level and holds on tight. It’s confusing sometimes and occasionally frustrating, but for the most part this is an engaging adventure with some super bright ideas that you’re definitely going to want to keep playing.
