Astro Bot Rescue Mission Review

As virtual reality continues to grow as a new medium, many are trying to do some really interesting games and experiences that could only be developed for VR. Astro Bot Rescue Mission isn’t inventing new genre’s, it is taking an old, classic video game genre and bringing into the VR world -- but to amazing effect.

The Midnight Sanctuary Review

Christianity in Japan and its history isn't something I've seen much in movies, but definitely something I haven't seen done before in games. However, that's the main theme of CAVYHOUSE's visual novel, The Midnight Sanctuary.

STONE Review

Stone, a koala, awakes with no recollection of his night prior, his keys are in the sink and his head hurts, but most importantly he has woken to a mysterious call telling him his life will never be the same -- his chookie and partner, Alex has been kidnapped.

Forza Horizon 4 Review

Forza Horizon 4 is a stunningly beautiful tour through the UK with a roster of cars that all control and sound unique with superb detail. The season’s system will keep Horizon 4 feels constantly new and exciting, like a living world that is now populated with real players. This is the racing game to pick up in 2018 and one of the best games of the year.

The Gardens Between Review

Some things in life we don’t have control over, like time for example and as much as you may wish you could manipulate things and go back to relive moments of your childhood days spent with your best friend, you can't. In The Gardens Between, however, you’re given the ability to relieve memories of VHS players, late night gaming sessions on CRT TVs and adventures around town. You’re also given control of time, if only for a moment.

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.
