Review: Downwell (PS4)

Downwell (PS4)

My feet are killing you

Well, well, well – if game juice were a real beverage, then Downwell would be the Um Bongo of the fruit flavoured sugar water world. This descend-'em-up by Japanese indie Moppin sees you – and we're quoting the official website here – assume the role of a "young man with gun-boots". The gelatinous protagonist looks...

Review: Enter the Gungeon (PS4)

Enter the Gungeon (PS4)

You're fired

Releasing an indie roguelike in 2016 is tough. There are already several almost perfect and incredibly popular entries in the genre floating around in the wild. Indeed, not only is the market flooded, it's flooded with liquid gold. Thankfully, Enter the Gungeon not only borrows good ideas from its peers, it also plays enough new tricks...

Review: Broforce (PS4)

Broforce (PS4)

#MakeAmericaGreatAgain

If there's one thing that the United States has primarily contributed toward the betterment of society, there's no shadow of a doubt that it's 80s and 90s action flicks. Filled to the brim with fearless heroes killing innumerable amounts of communist fascists, terrorist scum, and extra-terrestrial threats, few can resist a...

Broforce's PS4 Launch Trailer Shows Why It's a PlayStation Plus Winner

Freedom fighters

Maybe you didn't vote for it, maybe you'll never play it - but we want you to at least give Broforce's PlayStation 4 launch trailer a look. The video's a bit like a Saturday morning cartoon opening, but with way more guts, death, and explosions. Okay, so it's not the most elegant trailer that we've ever seen, but it's at least...

Review: Not a Hero (PS4)

Not a Hero (PS4)

Diplomatic immunity

Aptly titled, Not a Hero is a charismatic, side-scrolling shoot-'em-up in which you massacre mobsters, thugs, and other underworld villains in the name of BunnyLord – an anthropomorphic purple rabbit who is currently running for mayor. Phew. The title's core gameplay, on the other hand, isn't all that strange. First and...

Not a Hero Finally Slides onto PS4 from 2nd February

OlliOlli devs roll in

OlliOlli maker Roll7's been working on Not a Hero since skateboarding was cool, so it's nice to see the side-scrolling Vanquish finally get a PlayStation 4 release date. The title will deploy on 2nd February, where an anthropomorphic rabbit – yeah, we're not so keen on that bit – will task you with cleansing the world of...

The Talos Principle Puzzles PS4 This 13th October

Philosophy of life

Croteam surprised everyone by ditching Serious Sam's screaming midgets in favour of philosophical puzzler The Talos Principle – but the even greater shock was that the existential adventure actually, y'know, turned out to be pretty darn good. It's no surprise that the release is making the jump to the PlayStation 4, then, with...

Review: Hatoful Boyfriend (PS4)

Hatoful Boyfriend (PS4)

Somebirdie to love

In the opening scene of Hatoful Boyfriend – the PlayStation 4's premiere pigeon dating simulator – its main character Hiyoko Tosaka attempts to describe the school that she attends. "It's a long story," she laments, before quickly giving up. If you want to see everything that this bizarre title has to offer, you'll have to...

Rumour: The Talos Principle Puzzles PS4 from 25th August

The Talos Principle Puzzles PS4 from 25th August

Thinking outside the box

The last thing that you'd expect to seep out of Serious Sam developer Croteam is a philosophical first-person puzzler, but The Talos Principle has generated a lot of buzz since its release on the PC in 2014. We already know, of course, that a PlayStation 4 version is in the pipeline – but now Amazon appears to have outed a...

Review: Titan Souls (PlayStation 4)

Titan Souls (PlayStation 4)

Fall of the Titans

There are people that would say that you deserve to die if you go on your monster-squashing quest armed with nothing but a single arrow, a pink bow in your hair, and a backpack filled with only the finest Waitrose-branded good intentions. Titan Souls doesn't have a story, but it improves the game tenfold if you view it as a fable...

Round Up: Hotline Miami 2 Reviews Dial the Right Number

Hotline Miami 2 Reviews Dial the Right Number

Number games

Dennaton Games' flashy Hotline Miami sequel may bear the subtitle Wrong Number, but there's clearly nothing wrong with the follow-up's review scores. Indeed, while March is packed to the brim with blockbusters, it's the indie titles that are taking all of the plaudits, as the murder-'em-up attracts a bevy of big scores. We've been put...

Hotline Miami 2 Is Butchering Its Way onto PS4 and Vita Next Month

Scream bloody murder

Hear that throbbing electronica in the distance? That's the sound of blood soaked sequel Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number fast approaching its release date. The game's official Twitter account has announced that the adrenaline simulator is storming onto Sony's consoles next month, on the 10th March. Needless to say, it should be...

Pigeon Dating Sim Hatoful Boyfriend Flaps onto PS4 and Vita Next Year

Woo-ing you

When the visual novel Hatoful Boyfriend was launched in Japan by Hato Moa, many brushed the pigeon hook-up sim aside. Devolver Digital, however, grabbed the bird by the wings – and following a successful launch on Steam earlier in the year, it'll be flying onto the PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2015. This isn't an early April fools' day...

Review: Shadow Warrior (PlayStation 4)

Shadow Warrior (PlayStation 4)

Crouching tiger, hidden Wang

Take those old kung-fu movies that get repeated endlessly on daytime cable channels, add a dash of retro shooter and whatever random bits of supernatural plot you have lying around, and that’s Shadow Warrior. An overpriced product of a bygone era, its attempts to highlight the way that things used to be do little but...
