  • The Weekender: Token Edition

    Fri 7:31am
    It’s a Bank Holiday here In the UK, so for various reasons this is an incredibly token edition of The Weekender – apologies! Quite honestly though, I’ve not been taken by this week’s release slate so you’re not really missing out on much.We’re…
  • Review: Dungeon Warfare 2

    Thu 6:51am
    When a genre is defined by immobile structures shooting at lanes of slow-moving massed minions it’s easy to gain a reputation for being predictable. You could be forgiven for dismissing tower defense games as dull casual money grabs, especially as they…
  • Zombicide coming to mobile next week no big deal (correction)

    Wed 7:55am
    So you may not be aware, but Asmodee Digital launched a newsletter last year. I can’t exactly remember when but it was early 2018 I believe. By and large, it’s not the most useful newsletter in the world – it’s monthly, a lot of the stuff it talks…
  • The Best Word Games Apps on iOS and Android

    Wed 5:06am
    Like puzzle games, word apps are synonymous with 'gaming on the go.' They are often designed with a life on the move in mind. Any given round of word finding, or letter stacking can last just long enough to span the wait for a morning coffee. This sort of…
  • Review: This War of Mine: Stories - Father's Promise

    Tue 6:35am
    I can still remember playing games such as Commando and Operation Wolf at my local arcade. Back then my only concern was that I had enough coins left for another go; It was a time when we blasted our way through waves of enemies without a second thought. This…
  • Warhammer Quest 2 Easter Sale Makes Starting the End Times Cheaper than Ever!

    Mon 10:18am
    Granted, as much as we enjoyed 2013’s Warhammer Quest we weren’t quite as fond of the 2017 sequel Warhammer Quest 2. It’s not that it was a bad game, but at launch at least it lacked a lot of the tension and board game-like feels of the original…
  • The Weekender: Simulator Edition

    Apr 12, 2019, 7:17 am
    It’s been a bit of a slower week than I’d initially planned – I was away on Monday, but I was hoping to post up a review of Egypt: Old Kingdom yesterday. It released by accident when we mentioned it in a past Weekender update but we were expecting it to…
  • The Best Puzzle Games on Android & iOS

    Apr 11, 2019, 11:29 am
    There’s perhaps no genre synonymous with mobile platforms - especially iPhone or Android devices - than puzzle games. Low intensity inputs are good for a device with no buttons, and the pace of these games plays well with the low session time,…
  • Review: Cultist Simulator

    Apr 10, 2019, 11:00 am
    Many a videogame has promised horror and darkness, some calling forth these more than others, but as whole the tone and genre has become practically anodyne. Familiarity breeds contempt. Zombies, vampires, nuclear wastelands. Compared to these, Cultist…
  • Review: NecroDancer: AMPLIFIED

    Apr 9, 2019, 11:47 am
    By attempting to re-package the roguelike back in 2015, Brace Yourself Games may have accidentally made one of the most compelling deconstructions of it in video games. Crypt of the Necrodancer finds ways to make turn-based dungeon crawling feel entirely new…
