By Campbell Bird on February 20th, 2024
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: TOO FAR GONE
This FMV game is most interesting as a curious cultural artifact and little else.

Resident Evil 4 review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on February 14th, 2024
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: REMADE BEYOND RECOGNITION
Seeing modern, major releases come to mobile is worth celebrating, but that doesn’t change the fact that this “re-make” is fairly disappointing.

Demeo review

iPad App - Designed for iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 19th, 2023

For the asking price, I’d want a little more variety in a dungeon-crawler.


Hitman: Blood Money — Reprisal review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 8th, 2023
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: NOT SO SMOOTH CRIMINAL

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: MOBILE MONSTER TRAINER
Coromon is a reverent but flawed love letter to Pokémon.


Embrace your sordid dreams of licking paintings in Please, Touch The Artwork 2

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 20th, 2024

Throughout my life, I would call myself a fan of precisely one artwork, otherwise I, like many other people ruined by this generation, lack the attention span for brushstrokes and the like. If there were more games like Please, Touch The Artwork 2 though, that might change, as it brings some interactivity to the frames.

Developed by the one-man army of Studio Waterzooi, this new virtual gallery is composed entirely of works by James Ensor, a Belgium Moder Art pioneer, and a man who, through the eyes of this non-expert, painted some pretty weird yet somehow captivating works. I’m no art critic, but I am a connoisseur of weird, and I can approve of these.

Tower of God: New World is harbouring a few fugitives in latest collaboration with The Seven Deady Sins

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 19th, 2024

Tower of God: New World has a good track record with big collaborations and incredibly generous rewards, and now Netmarble has landed another top name, with the ongoing team-up with The Seven Deadly Sins, including three new characters and a bevvy of events to complete.

If you need some defence, take a look at the SSR+ [The One] Escanor. The Lion Sin of Pride is a hulking brute of a man when the sun is up, becoming invincible for a minute when the clock hits noon. He comes packing skills such as Critical Hit, Stunning and more, and will perform admirably as a Tank.

Scramble like the lizard you've always wanted to be with the release of Electric Blue: Gecko Dash

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 16th, 2024

Playing games is fun, we all know this, which makes them the perfect medium to teach people about important issues. Who doesn’t learn better when they enjoy themselves? Our latest piece of infotainment comes from OtE Productions, and is called Electric Blue: Gecko Dash.

The game aims to raise awareness of the Electric Blue Gecko, also known as the Williams’ Dwarf Gecko, as it sits in the rather worrying threatened category due to poachers. You will take control of the titular lizard as you slip through the hands of the evil thieves to get back to your screwpine tree home.

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 15th, 2024

It's time to man those defences and load those guns, as FunPlus announces the impending State of Survival Doomsday Open Season 2 competition. Take some time out from killing zombies and turn those guns on your friends, as any player can enter for a chance to be the ultimate survivor.

Celebrate Festival from the comfort of the skies in Planes Control

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 14th, 2024

It is that sacred week for all those who enjoy showing their stuff on the dancefloor and dressing in fabulously extravagant gear, as Carnival is in full swing in Rio de Janeiro. And where there is a party, there is a designated driver, or in the case of Planes Control, a designated pilot.

Thanks to Planes Control, you will be in charge of flying these festival revellers to and from the bustling city from February 16th all the way to March 6th. The Carnival itself ends on the 17th, but let’s not tell the flyers that. It will be a nice surprise when they land and the dancing has already stopped.

Space will be shining bright this month as NetEase return the Beacon Festival to Infinite Lagrange

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 13th, 2024

NetEase Games has announced the return of the Beacon Festival to Infinite Lagrange, a celebration of those lifesaving space lights. A large part of spacefarers' life worth noting, and the theme of this year’s Beacon Festival is Galaxy Reformation, commemorating those who lit the lifesaving lights.

One of the biggest additions to the game in this update is the UAV Carrier, a special vessel that revolves around the titular UAV system. Any ship stored in its hander will find itself equipped with UAV, enchanting its combat prowess and allowing it to become an even more deadly force.

Seven Knights Idle Adventure receives massive update with new Heroes and modes

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 11th, 2024

Netmarble has recently updated Seven Knights Idle Adventure with so much new content you will think it is already Christmas again. There are two new modes, some special Lunar New Year celebratory events, an expansion to the Tower of Infinity, and four powerful new Legendary Heroes to collect.

Kicking off our lineup of heroes is Rakshasa. This ranged unit will boost the Critical Hit chance of Defensive allies. A neat trick to bring a little more damage, but perhaps not the most useful buff. Lee Jung, on the other hand, grants himself a shield equal to his maximum health after Taunting, resulting in a very stable brick wall for enemies to throw themselves against.

Xiao can draw opponents towards her at a distance, and impart a Silence debuff on them,perfect to help dismantle the opponent's long-ranged glass canons, get them close and stop their damage. Finally, Medea will be perfect in fights against Nightmare Boss Monsters, imparting a damage buff to allies after she attacks the foul fiend.

After recruiting your new friends, put them through their paces with the introduction of the Fang of the Glacier ten-player dungeon. Alternatively, take them a trip into the heavens as the Tower of Infinity heads up to the 1,000th floor with stages 9,601 through 10,400 opening their lofty doors.

For those out there who have seen and done it all, there is a new, devilishly difficult mission to undertake; the Nightmare Stage mode. Only available after reaching the final stage, it will be a true task of your prowess. Complete it, and you will earn Medea and Elixirs to help your new friends grow in no time.

Finally, it is all of our favourite things; free stuff, lasting through till February 21st. The Sweet Valentine’s Carnival Event is dangling the Legendary Hero Bathory to get players to engage with it, and the new units Rakshasa and Xiao are sitting in the Rate-Up Event. You can also grab a host of gifts through the Lunar New Year Check-In Event, earning a Lucky Pouch and a Seven Knights Hero Selection Ticket just for logging in.

Seven Knights Idle Adventure is available to download now from the App Store and Google Play.

Social deduction game iLLANG opens its doors for sleuthing fun

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 9th, 2024

It is a hard rule that news writers across any medium must remain unbias and report facts, this is an immutable law that must always be followed. Having said that, allow me a few brief moments to throw all that in the garbage and enthuse about the office release of a game I personally have been most intrigued by; iLLANG.

iLLANG is based on the classic party game of Mafia, also known as Werewolf, Village, or something to this effect. It is a social deduction game where the players must uncover who amongst them is the wolf in sheep's clothing waiting to strike, and in this case, the metaphor is quite apt, as someone is a literal wolf.

The lord of chaos gets a new outlet as Algorocks unveil Dadoo

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 8th, 2024

Card and board games like Uno and Munchkins have become so popular due to this universal fact - chaos is fun. Seeing the look on your loved one's faces as you destroy their shot at glory is devilishly delightful, and now the same treatment is coming to the world of Snakes and Ladders thanks to developers Algorocks' upcoming title; Dadoo.

The aim is simple - make it to the end of the snakes and ladders-inspired board. To get there, though, you will need to fend off three other players all stocked up with ways to overtake, bamboozle, or simply destroy your progress. Pick your character, build your deck, and prepare for carnage.

There is a huge range of cards for players to collect and use in order to gain an edge and make it to the end. You can manipulate dice rolls with Double Trouble to roll more, throw a Confusion on your opponents to force them to reverse their movement, or if you are feeling particularly mean, hit them with both.

Despite all the, let's be frank, backstabbing that will be going on, fun is at the forefront of Dadoo. That is why no card is designed to be overly broken. Obtaining a rare card does not necessarily ensure victory, and that is just the way things should be. Add this to the game's range of different boards and dozens of tactical options, and you have the recipe for an endlessly fun party night classic.

Algorocks CEO, Adib, announced the title by saying:"We created Dadoo from a shared passion for board games and the joy of laughing together. In today's busy world, carving out time for such moments can be challenging. Dadoo is our answer - a game designed to spark joy and togetherness, accessible anytime, anywhere.”

Android players can get their hands on Dadoo now and experience the fun of sabotage through Google Play, with an iOS version following later this year.

Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with an event-packed festival in Infinite Borders

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 7th, 2024

One of the most fascinating parts of gaming is the vast array of other cultures you can experience as you enjoy yourself, with the Three Kingdoms era from Chinese History being a personal highlight. Hit grand strategy game Infinite Borders is now injecting some more culture into this classic background with the Spring Festival event.

2024 is the Year of the Dragon in many cultures and Infinite Borders are celebrating this in their festival invite, open to any player who has a Historical Force Value of 200 or more. The fun kicks off the way any great event does; massive explosions, with the Firework Celebration taking place on February 9th and 10th.

Harness the innate might of a curved piece of wood in Boomerang RPG, Watch Out Dude

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 6th, 2024

Sometimes, to produce a beloved mobile game you don’t need an ultimate weapon, you don’t need an in-depth earth-shattering story, and you don't need an over-the-top boss battle. Sometimes, you just need a Dude, and Super Planet is bringing back their beloved character in Boomerang RPG: Watch Out, Dude.

Back in the forgone year of 2018, Super Planet released Missile Dude RPG, an idle game about a non-descript gentleman who picked up a rocket launcher, cracked wise, and blew a host of demons into chunks. It was a big hit, so now he is back, and he's traded his missiles for Boomerangs, as you would.

Delabs breaks into mobile gaming with the release of Rumble Racing Star on Android

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 5th, 2024

Since Nintendo pretty much sounded the death knell for Mario Kart Tour back in October, the weaponised kart racing scene on mobile has got a little sparse of big names, with only KartRider Rush’s Arcade Mode and Boom Karts immediately coming to mind. Now though, Delabs is bringing their signature Rumble Racing Star to mobile.

This is Delab's first foray into mobile gaming, and it is arriving with a bang. Rumble racing Star is a kart racer with a little twist; you are instead all riding lawnmowers which makes the spectacle that much more amusing. Take control of a crazy clown or a man I can only liken to the Ox King from Dragon Ball, and cause some backyard chaos.

Somebody call Ishmael as Moby Dick crashes into Uncharted Waters Origins

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 2nd, 2024

The siren song of the sea has lured another recruit to its waves, as Uncharted Waters Origin announces the release of a new S-Grade Admiral. Following along is a celebratory event for the Lunar New Year, and a fierce new Assault content pitting you against one of literature's most notorious water mammals.

Our new S-Grade Admiral is Zheng Chenggong, a warrior from the Ming dynasty who has struck out onto the seas to fulfil his long-held dreams. Zheng is a match made in heaven for those who want a bit more Ming melee muscle, with skills suited to close-quarter combat. Complete his Chronicle, and you will receive Superior Mate EXP Potions and five tickets for the new S Grade Mate, Aredvi.

Embrace your inner Tomb Raider as Blue Archive goes ruin-diving

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 1st, 2024

Towards the end of December, we covered an update to Nexons’ RPG Blue Archive that involved the characters exploring a fishing town in that most appropriate of gear; swimwear. Well, Nexon has found a vein it likes and will keep tapping it, as they roll out three more summer-clad students in the latest update.

Trinity Extracurriculars: In Search of Hidden Ruins see the player character and three students from the Trinity General School; Ui, Hinata, and Koharu, stranded on a deserted island as they are off on an archaeological adventure. Yes, it appears Indiana Jones had it all wrong, archaeologists don't wear fedoras and brown jackets, they wear swimsuits.
