By Campbell Bird on June 16th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: BACK TO THE FUTURE
Huntdown looks just like a forgotten action arcade game from the 80s or 90s, and it mostly plays better.

Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: SHOOTING BLANKS

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.

Safety with Jeff the Ref V.2693-427 from Jason on Vimeo.

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.
