A behind the scenes look at action packed Sci-Fi pinball game, Robot Crusher Battle Ballz

Posted by Luke Frater on March 30th, 2020
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Robot Crusher Battle Ballz is a fast paced, action packed take on classic pinball with a rough and ready Sci-Fi style. It boasts a striking art design, explosive skill based battles, and an extremely satisfying ‘CRUSHING’ feature that lets you pound vanquished robot foes into mechanical pancakes. It makes for a gratifying arcade experience and a very impressive debut for the rather peculiarly named, Big Boy Pants Studios.

Judging by the name, the small New Zealand based outfit doesn’t take itself too seriously but it definitely took a great deal of care and effort in crafting its very first game, as we shall show…

REKT! guide - Is the latest content update worth it?

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 14th, 2019

When REKT! first came out, I was impressed with the game’s ability to channel the gameplay of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in a small, streamlined package. Be that as it may, I was also pretty underwhelmed with the game’s lack of content.

Fast-forward a year and a half and REKT! now has quite a bit more stuff in it. Given that the game is now more fleshed-out than ever, I went ahead and dove back into REKT! to see if it feels like more than the proof of concept it felt like at launch.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: HEART PUMPING
Asphalt 9: Legends is the best of the series so far. While it may lean a little more toward the casual side of arcade racing, it's still a ton of fun and gorgeous, to boot.
