Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: LOW TIDE
This FMV game presumes you’ll want to play it exhaustively to uncover its secrets but doesn’t really give you reasons to want to do that.

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: A NEW DAWN
This game is nothing new in more ways than one, but it is now bursting with variety and is perhaps the most mobile friendly way to deckbuild around.

Embrace the fearsome spirit of the season in Phobies’ biggest update

Posted by Shaun Walton on October 2nd, 2023

We have now arrived at that most haunting of months where everything that goes bump in the night has come out to play, and what better way to commemorate this than with a fresh batch of Phobies to collect in the eponymous game?

Of course, we couldn’t have had Halloween without a bumper update from this specific game, in which Phobies are essentially weaponised fears, and fittingly, Symphony of the Undead is one of the biggest additions thus far, with new characters, a host of maps, and the longest event in Phobie’s history.

Recruit yourself some run-and-gun royalty as Metal Slug 3 explodes into Warpath

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 29th, 2023

It is always nice to see the return of a series that has lost a bit of its global staying power, and thanks to Lilith Games' latest collaboration, Warpath will be playing host the the run-and-gun legend that is Metal Slug 3.

Released in the late 90s and set in the fat too near 2028, anyone else feeling old yet, the Metal Slug series followed the exploits of the Peregrine Falcons Special Forces Squad, led by technological wunderkind Marco Rossi. The team was soon bolstered by a partnership street kid-turned-spy Eri Kasamoto, who was the worst spy in existence thanks to her speciality of throwing bombs everywhere.

Tarisland has confirmed inclusion of music by Emmy Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated composer

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 28th, 2023

It goes without saying, but I'm going to anyway, that actual gameplay and graphics are incredibly important, but they can mean nothing without the right sound. Music sets the atmosphere, whether it's relaxing in a town, the budding swell of adventure, or that dramatic twang when a boss arrives, and Tarisland has landed itself a legend in this arena.

The upcoming cross-platform MMORPG has announced that world-renowned, Emmy Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated composer Russell Brower will be contributing a lot of music for the game, across a multitude of different regions in the world. Having such proven hands taking the reins in the audio realm definitely sets Tarisland in good stead.

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 27th, 2023

Dive once more into the great unknown with EVE Galaxy Conquest

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 26th, 2023

EVE is one of those game franchises that if you haven’t played it, you still most definitely know about it, thanks to its sprawling world, limitless playstyle, or the tales of year-long subterfuge for players to eliminate an enemy. Now, the freestyle fun is expanding thanks to CCP Games' announcement of the 4X strategy game EVE Galaxy Conquest.

Conquest sees its playerbase team up to battle opponents for interstellar supremacy, taking command of a legion of ships from one of EVE online empires; the Caldari State, Gallente Federation, Amarr Empire, or Minmatar Republic. Unfortunately, there will be no independent rampant piracy for you today.

Square Enix commemorates one of its greatest forgotten franchises in new Final Fantasy Brave Exvius collaboration

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 25th, 2023

One of the most criminally underused properties in the Square Enix roster is undoubtedly Parasite Eve, a fantastic fusion of Resident Evil and Final Fantasy that deserved far more than two PlayStation One Games and a PSP follow-up. Now, however, Aya Brea is stepping back into the spotlight thanks to a collaboration between Eve and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius.

If you haven’t played anything from the Parasite Eve catalogue you are missing out. It starts with the protagonist, rookie cop Aya Brea, attending an opera only to have everyone area her spontaneously combust, which sets the tone for the rest of the game. The combat system was a then-experimental mix that combined an Active Turn-based system with free movement to dodge attacks as you used parasite powers to save Manhattan.

Motorsport legends NASCAR announce an upcoming standalone game developed by experts Hutch

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 22nd, 2023

NASCAR often gets a bad reputation outside of America, but there is a certain charm to it with its close side-by-side action and its focus on pure speed, but it never managed to really massively break out internationally. Now, there's a chance that will change thanks to automotive game experts Hutch announcing a partnership with the racing giants.

Hutch has staked a claim as perhaps the top racing developer on mobile, with big hits like the Supercar smash Race Kings, the more cerebral Top Drives, or the officially licensed F1 Clash, perhaps the biggest testament to their talents. This experience with another of the world's top car sports with be no doubt invaluable as they develop this NASCAR title, and at a pretty big milestone.

Let fly the birds of war as a new Clan debuts in Northgard

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 21st, 2023

Name the most Norse bird you can think of, then give it a twist because Playdigious is introducing not the Raven clan, mostly because they already exist, but the Clan of the Eagle in Northgard’s latest DLC. If you find gathering resources a challenge, then you are definitely going to want to see this.

The Clan of the Eagle, or Hraesvelg, are led by Grif because Big Bird sounded too silly. As a young child, Grif lived through the destruction of their parent’s clan, before being adopted by Hraesvelg. Living through this, then rising to the command of their new clan shows levels of adaptability that gave them the skills to be a perfect leader.

CookeRun: Tower of Adventures is almost ready to take out of the oven

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 20th, 2023

You may have thought that a game series revolving around biscuits in battle would not have the best-staying power, but Devsisters have proven that so wrong with these massively popular CookieRun series. And now, the latest entry in this delicious series has finally revealed its name; CookieRun: Tower of Adventures.

Previously known as Project B, presumably for baked goods or perhaps Bookie, Tower of Adventurers will be a casual action game with real-time action combat, and will be the franchise's first 3D, for maximum snack power. It will even feature cooperative play because no one cookie is a full meal.

The spooky season picks up speed with KartRider: Drift

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 15th, 2023

Get yourself a headstart on the Halloween season, as Nexon and Nitro Studios bring a scarily earlier seasonal update to its racer, KartRider: Drift. Season 4: Hallo-Drift brings spooky new tracks, characters, and even a striking new mode for everyone to sink their fangs into.

Crossover Mode is a brand new way to play, and combines aspects from the two core existing modes; Speed and Item. Item boxes will spawn on the track for racers to collect and use, and you will be able to fill up that Boost Gauge through drifting to make sure you get that box before anyone else. It’s a combination of the best that Drift has to offer.

Two of Resident Evil's best titles will be coming to iPhone 15 later this year

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 14th, 2023

If you are looking for a new phone then the upcoming iPhone 15 could jump to the top of your wishlist with the recent announcement by Capcom that Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village will be available on the Pro and Pro Max devices. You can also grab these outstanding titles on an iPad Air or iPad Pro with an M1 chip or later.

This marks the first time that these two titles will be available on smartphones, and they are definitely worth the price. Whilst they don’t retain much of the straight original survival horror aspects of the original instalments, both leaning a bit more toward action, both have won Game of the Year accolades, and Resident Evil 4 is no doubt one of the most beloved in the series.

Put your thinking caps on as The Isle Tide Hotel launches on mobile

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 13th, 2023

When a developer puts out a mystery game influenced by a show like Twin Peaks, you know you are in for an incredibly interesting time, and that is what The Isle Tide Hotel promises. In this interactive mystery movie, you will need to collect clues, solve puzzles, and always remember not to break the Etiquettes.

Once a year, for three nights only, the Isle Tide Hotel opens its doors to a group of people with only one thing bringing them; their search for the meaning of life. This year, however, the answer is within reach, provided they hand over a sacrifice to their founder, Dr Aniston, who promises this act will conclude the search.
