Megaquarium Review

Megaquarium is a tycoon game that sets you the task of running a successful aquarium with nearly 100 aqua life forms to fill your attraction with, however, while the game succeeds with the fishy stuff, it fails to feel like running a true aquarium.

Donut County Review

I feel like a terrible person. In Ben Esposito's Donut County I destroyed people's homes, crushed the livelihood of residents, burnt down trees and sucked up everything in my path. I feel terrible, but I think that's the point. 

2064: Read Only Memories INTEGRAL Review

2066: Read Only Memories from developer Midboss is a cyberpunk narrative-adventure that originally released on computer platforms in 2015; was updated and ported to consoles in 2017, and now the pixel-art, point and click adventure makes its way to the Nintendo Switch with the 'INTEGRAL' tagline and some bonus features. 

Destination Primus Vita Episode One: Austin Review

2353, Earth: aliens dubbed ‘Shatters’ have invaded. These huge golem size creatures are made up of several different body parts that somehow float together; they don’t destroy humanity or choose to rule over the human race though, instead choosing to steal all Earth’s water and leave, returning to their own planet, Primus Vita.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode One 'Done Running' Review

Two seasons, two spin-offs and six years later and it’s time for Telltale to finally wrap up their time with Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead world (until they decide not too) and also give us an ending to Clementine's story who players grew attached to years ago as a little girl facing the trial and tribulations of growing up fast in the face of the world's end.

Paperbark Review

When you're alone in the Australian bush there is a sense and sound that is uniquely Australian. Whether that's the smell of eucalyptus, the cries of cockatiels or kookaburras or the distant ruffles of Australian unique wildlife. It's special, and Paperbark embodies those elements into a short interactive story. 

Solo Review

Solo (not related to Star Wars) is 50% psychological journey and 50% box puzzler. If answering questions about your love life truthly sounds like a terrible idea, Solo might not be for you, however, there is a competent puzzle game here as well.

Sir Eatsalot Review

Sony’s handheld doesn’t get many games made exclusively for it anymore. However, a small team from Germany, Behind the Stone, have put together an exclusive 2D side-scroller for the under-loved handheld

Island Time VR Review

Island Time was on the back foot with me from the offset - it was the first time I put on my VR helmet since playing Moss (a game I adore). However, after a couple of hiccoughs up front and a little experimentation, I’ve grown pretty fond of the (relatively simple) survival game. So much so that I went back again and again. 

Reverie Review

Too much dismay from others, I have stated several times that the 2D Zelda games are my favourites. Reverie, from small New Zealand-based studio Rainbite, have developed a Vita title that fills that 2D Zelda itch for me.

Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR Review

FoxNext and Imaginati Studio have released their first VR experience based on the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise, and it’s -- well, as far as movie tie-in games go it’s good, as a game, it’s okay. Be warned though, this one does require a decent amount of space (it says 2x2 metres) and will require both Move controllers.

Florence Review

Florence is one of the most beautiful and intimate pieces of art you can play on your phone right now. It'll undoubtedly be one of the years best games, and an experience I'll be thinking about for a long time to come.

Dynasty Warrior 9 Review

I have seen credits roll multiple times in Dynasty Warriors 9 and am nowhere near finishing the Three Kingdoms story, let alone experiencing all the game has to offer. However, despite 30-odd hours with the game, the prospect that there is still so much to see and do excites me.

Rumu Review

Rumu is the story of a robot vacuum cleaner and its journey of discovery in its own home. You will probably fall in love with Rumu, it’s hard not too with all the bleeps and bloops it makes while explaining it loves this and it loves that -- adorable. But underneath the cute aesthetic and fantastically designed art, and structure of this A.I charged house, lies a darker tale, and several puzzles to make you pull your hair. 

Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 3 'Fractured Mask' Review (Spoilers)

Synopsis:

The Evil Within 2 Review

The Evil Within 2 is a dilemma. It took me until the final third of the game to know if I loved it or loathed it. In this review, I will consistently compare this game to the 2014 original because of how special that experience was and due to the marketed changes in the sequel. If you haven't played the first The Evil Within, I highly recommend you do so before picking up this instalment in the series.
