Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes Just from looking at the artwork for Cybarian, you can tell it took great inspiration from the classic 80s arcade games, which is what intrigued me the most. It’s different from many of the modern games that come out these days with their focus on realistic graphics and vast worlds, and I was looking forward to a fun, 2D side scroller with a taste of nostalgia. What I wasn’t expecting was how challenging this game could be, based heavily on perfecting your timing.

Rolling Sky Review

Reading Time: 3 minutes The mobile hit Rolling Sky rolls on over to the Nintendo Switch, and in it, the spherical sensation provides a unique taste to the usual platforming experience, testing the player’s reaction times, reflexes and speed with fun challenges accompanied by gratifying background music. The player controls a ball that rolls automatically and must traverse through many obstacles like spikes and lasers that can only be avoided by moving with perfect timing to the rhythm.

Apex Construct Review

Reading Time: 6 minutes The first time I saw the promotional materials for Apex Construct, I was reminded of the PlayStation 4 exclusive, Horizon: Zero Dawn. With the trailer emphasising the bow & arrow weapon and the mechanical animals that succumb to it, that impression was apt but false. After playing it for a bit, I came to realise that Apex Construct was far less like the game mentioned above and more in-line with games like System Shock 2 and Bioshock, though only superficially.

We. The Revolution Review

Reading Time: 7 minutes We. The Revolution is a unique journey told through the eyes of a judge during the French Revolution. Every action and decision affects the people around you, including your friends and family. Interrogate and pass sentences on the guilty or free the innocent. Find clues, cross exam the witnesses to find the truth. Remember, every action you take affects your story and the outcome of future decisions. Will you be a revolutionary judge, or will you condemn all you know to suffer indefinitely? That choice is up to you.

Kitten’d Review

Reading Time: 3 minutes I live in a house with four cats. My partner and I are destined to be crazy cat people at this point, so when I saw that a VR game involving kittens had just released, I pounced at the opportunity. Kitten’d pits you against progressively harder levels where you must appease the feline overlords so that your house can remain untarnished.

Dead Dungeon Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes 2D platformers have been around for decades since the days of Super Mario Bros and Sonic, and many other companies have taken a stab at their own. You may also remember the craze of the Impossible Game with its soundtrack and rage-inducing difficulty. Well, Dead Dungeon takes all the best aspects of these and makes them its own, resulting in a challenging but elite 2D platformer perfect for fans of the genre.
