Tengami Review

tengami

Tengami caught our eye well over a year ago at the Eurogamer Expo back in 2013. Amidst the throng of noise and colour around the Nintendo stand was an unassuming screen displaying a delicate looking game.  A very apt first impression, this is a very calm and thoughtful game that is much more about contemplation and the journey than it ...

Shovel Knight Review

shovelknight

Shovel Knight has been looking like a good game for a very long time and we loved it when we tried the PC version out. Another in the long line of retro styled platformers, it has always had something a little bit special about it. It’s taken a while to get here from the PC and we are delighted to ... Read More »

One Piece: Unlimited World Red Review

One Piece

We’re not going to lie and say we’re the foremost knowledge on all things One Piece, because apart from a few short clips of the anime, this game is pretty much our only experience with the series. And yet despite this, there is an awful lot to like about Unlimited World Red even from us non-fans. Although obviously aimed at ... Read More »

Mario Kart 8

Driving into the final corner, you jump and drift giving you a much needed boost. Victory is within your grasp, but at that moment a red shell appears. You are hit, coins flying, you are inches away from the finish, but alas cannot gain enough speed to make it across. As you finally come to the realisation that your victory ... Read More »

Super Mario 3D World Review

Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo are masters of their craft. Even with a series that has seemingly been around since the dawn of time, they still manage to amaze, astound, and create a sense of wonder that takes you back to your childhood years. All of these feelings come thick and fast with Super Mario 3D World. The time to own a Wii U ... Read More »

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Wind Waker HD

It’s clear that no other Zelda game from years gone by would look this good in glorious HD. Originally released on the Gamecube, Wind Waker had something of a rocky time at first. A complete revamp of the graphical style, it was met with scorn, ridicule and general hatred from the more vocal of Zelda’s fans. It was an amusing ... Read More »

Kung Fu Rabbit Review

kungfurabbit

It’s an ordinary day in the Kung Fu Rabbit dojo when it’s suddenly invaded by Aliens who kidnap the rabbits to eat later. One brave rabbit remains and it is now up to you to rescue your friends. It’s a 2D platform game somewhere between Super Meat Boy and N+ with a toned down difficulty (compared to those two), and rabbits. If that’s got your interest then read on. Read More »
