Review: Iron Assault

Hello there. Looking at the last few review posts, I’ve obviously given up on trying to find another way to say “I hope you’re doing ok” – so, I hope you’re doing ok. Today we make a rare visit to the Simulation section of the site for some big robot action, in Iron Assault.

Review: Alan Wake

Hi there. Hope you’re doing ok. Today we establish that the answer to the question, “How far in advance would you have to start playing a vaguely spooky game in order to produce a review of that game to coincide with Halloween?” is “about six months”. (Alternatively, the timing could be considered more of a […]

Review: Jill of the Jungle

Hello everyone, hope you are well. Today I have another review for you! I’m sure it will be the highlight of your day. Or maybe just something mildly interesting to read during a tea break. Or maybe you’ll think I’m talking nonsense. Anyway, here’s our review of Jill of the Jungle.

Pirates and Robots

Hi all, hope you are doing okay in these uncertain times. Today I have a couple more second opinions for you. First up we have the The Curse of Monkey Island, the third entry in the classic adventure series. Also have a read about Shogo: Mobile Armour Division, a late-90s first person shooter featuring big, […]

Review: NBA Live 95

Hi there. Some time ago, The Last Dance on Netflix inspired me to play a couple of old basketball games. Here’s a write-up of the second: NBA Live 95 from EA. (I’ve since moved onto Friday Night Lights and Last Chance U, so I imagine I’ll end up writing about Front Page Sports Football while […]

Review: The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Hello there. Hope you’re doing ok. I’ve generously been given the title of this site’s main “review guy” based upon a blistering work rate that produces anywhere from 10-15 reviews per calendar year. With such a reputation to maintain, I have another one for you today! It’s of a relatively modern remake of an all-time […]

Review: Commander Keen in Keen Dreams

To be honest Rik is the main “review guy” here, I mostly just chip in with dumb blog posts about getting my ass kicked in RPGs. However, I would like to try and contribute a bit more regularly. So tonight I have another MS-DOS platform game for you. Let’s take a look at the “lost […]

Review: Kick Off 3: European Challenge

Hi there everyone. Hope you’re doing okay. Today’s review is Kick Off 3: European Challenge from Anco. We’ve got a few video clips from the game too. And, as ever, a new football game review also means a change to the standings in the FFG Football League.

Review: NBA Jam: Tournament Edition

Hello. Hope you’re all doing well, or hanging in there, at least. Like many others, I recently watched and enjoyed The Last Dance on Netflix. I don’t know much about basketball, or US sports in general, but like all the best documentaries, I don’t think that’s necessary in order to enjoy it. Anyway, it of course stirred […]

Discussion: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (spoilers!)

Hello there. Today we’re continuing our series of discussions of more modern indie titles. They’re not traditional reviews, as such, and we go into some detail about the specifics of the story of each, and so they’re heavily flagged for spoilers. Previously, Jo and I have talked about the FMV mystery Her Story and the […]
