Mothergunship Review – Lego With Guns

Do you like guns? Do you like shooting guns? Do you like shooting lots and lots of enemies with those guns? Mothergunship might just be for you then, letting you click together guns like a deadly version of Lego. Want a lighting rod strapped to a flamethrower? You can do that! Or do you just want multiple barrels that fire spiky metal balls? You can do that too.

Unforeseen Incidents Review – I Foresee A Recommendation

Y’know, when I was but a tiny human person playing games like Driver or GTA III or Mortal Kombat I also had a love of point and click games that came from my mum. Still, as I grew up I always thought it would be a genre destined to fade into obscurity as technology marched forwards toward a presumably horrible future where sentient video games take over the world. I still loved the games, but at the time they seemed so antiquated compared to the vast worlds that were being built. What was Guybrush to do against the might of CJ as he roamed a huge map of San Andreas? And yet here I am in 2018 still happily enjoying figuring out little puzzles. Man, I’m glad I was wrong. The point and click genre is still going strong.

Wreckfest Review – Flawed But Fun

What a journey Wreckfest has had. I remember previewing it years ago while it was simply known as Next Car Game and was composed of a physics playground and a few tracks. At the time Bugbear was unsure exactly where they wanted to take the game, and over the years there were moments where it seemed the Early Access project had been abandoned. But after a bunch of work, feedback and a renaming Wreckfest has stumbled out of Early Access with a purpose; bring back destruction derby.

Moonlighter Review – Sell, Loot, Repeat, Profit

Did you ever wonder how the shops in RPG games so often stock amazing, unique weapons? Where do they keep getting them from? A number of games have sought to put you into the shoes of the shopkeepers, selling items to adventurers who will run off to fight strange beasts rather having YOU be the one to do all the adventuring. Moonlighter wants you to do both, though, explaining that the reason shops have these amazing items is because the people who run them are adventurers, too.

Jurassic World: Evolution Review – Needs A Little More Bite

As a young human being back in the 90’s Jurassic Park was a film I watched countless times. I can vividly recall countless scenes from it, like the ripples in the glass of water, the way the T-Rex was sniffing around the cars and the initial wonder of seeing dinosaurs. And like so many kids the film was responsible for making me love dinosaurs. So the idea of a game that lets me make my very own Jurassic Park has my undivided attention. Oh, it’s Jurassic World now? My Bad.

Onrush Review – Brilliantly Chaotic Racing

The racing genre can be tricky to innovate in, especially since many of the titles coming out tend to focus more on the realism side of things. Onrush, though, wants to bring back the arcade thrills while also doing something a little different, ditching the normal racing concepts of trying to be ahead of anyone else, finish lines and laps. Instead, it brings in a little bit of Rocket League, a dab of Overwatch and a hell of a lot of destruction derby to create something that acts as a welcome kick in the racing genre’s nads.
