Insane Robots Review

I’m not really a fan of the online, collectible card games, such as Hearthstone. Personally I don’t enjoy the fantasy styling and the complexity of the majority of them. Fable Fortune was an exception but it was probably more due to my love of the franchise. When I saw Insane Robots at EGX Rezzed earlier this year I was pulled into it’s colourful, energetic styling, but will that be enough to make...

All-Star Fruit Racing Review

All-Star Fruit Racing is a new arcade kart racing game from developer 3DClouds, published by PQube, and is available for Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC. It’s quite obviously inspired by a certain moustachioed Italian plumber, but will I go bananas over it or will it leave me s-peach-less. And no more fruit puns, honest. All-Star Fruit Racing has all the elements that you would expect from a game in ...

Shift Quantum review

I always believe that a really great puzzle game is the type that slowly reels you in, gently teaching you the mechanics whilst making you believe that you’re actually quite clever. Then, before you know it you’re hooked, and then at that point the game hits you with all it has, making you feel like the stupidest person alive. Shift Quantum is one of those games, but it does a sterling job of neve...
