Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: BEGUILING BALLS
Mana Balls is an inventive arcade game that is weighed down by annoying free-to-play design.

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 :: DIZZYING ACTION

Asphalt 9: Legends review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Emily Sowden on August 7th, 2018
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.

BlazeFury guide - How to wrap your mind around this odd shmup

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 12th, 2018

BlazeFury is a unique take on the shmup genre, so it’s pretty easy to be confused about how you should play it. Fear not though, dear reader. These tips below will make you a dogfighting champion in no time.

Missiles are the best

The best way to start progressing quickly in BlazeFury is to invest in the right weapons. Since enemies get harder and harder, and there’s no real way to fight back without upgrading your own arsenal, you want to be sure you’re making the best investments possible.

From my experience, the missiles are the best weapon for you to unlock and continuously upgrade. Not only do they pack a punch against enemies, but they also do a great deal of splash damage, which can help you take down enemies that you aren’t even targeting.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: TACTICAL ARCADE ACTION
This parody of Metal Gear Solid is not actually a stealth game, and that’s fine.
