  • News Promising Looking Online Beat-'Em-Up Absolver Announced for PS4

    Absolve this

    Just announced for PlayStation 4, Absolver seems like an interesting concept. Crafted by ex-Ubisoft developers formed under indie banner Sloclap, this is a beat-'em-up with a few twists. According to the studio, Absolver is "a kick-ass online action game, with visceral martial arts style combat in a fantasy world, in which players...

    Review Downwell

    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

    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...


  • Soapbox Why Action Henk and Broforce Have Me Hooked

    Sam Brooke is enamoured with March's PS4 indie arrivals

    I admit it – I have a big soft spot for indie games. Call me weird, but I can't get enough of these low-budget beauties because they're forced to innovate using the limited resources that they have and can create genius new mechanics, or simply refine existing systems to perfection...

    Review Broforce


    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...

  • News 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...


  • News Downwell's Dropping onto PS4, Vita This Year

    Falling down

    Mostly monochromatic indie hit Downwell is taking the plunge to the PlayStation 4 and Vita, according to a PlayStation Japan indie spotlight video. The title was nonchalantly included alongside other upcoming Eastern releases like Rocket League and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, and the news has since been retweeted by Worldwide...

    Review Not a Hero

    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...

    Review Titan Souls

    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...

    Review Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

    Wronged number

    Dennaton Games' thrillingly brutal Hotline Miami caused quite a commotion when it was first set free, with the game amassing a diehard following due to its daring art direction and addictive, adrenaline-pumping gameplay.

  • Round Up 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...

    Review Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition

    Hail to the king, baby

    With only a few first-person shooters gracing the PlayStation Vita to date, there's plenty of room on Sony's handheld for anything offering up some half decent blasting. Since the bar hasn't exactly been set particularly high either, there's a perfect chance for classic titles such as Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition to stomp...

    Review Shadow Warrior

    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...

  • Round Up Shadow Warrior PS4 Reviews Go for the Throat

    Blades of steel

    Shadow Warrior started life as a 3D Realms developed first-person shooter, so we can understand why your scepticism is already at an all time high. This PlayStation 4 reimagining by Polish developer Flying Wild Hog, however, aims to drag the original into the next generation – without forgetting any of the late 90s tropes that...

    Review Luftrausers

    Don't mention the war

    Dutch developer Vlambeer is known for creating deceptively simple arcade titles that have a worrying tendency to burrow deep under your skin and take hold of your every waking thought. Its latest venture, Luftrausers, sees you seated in the cockpit of a World War II fighter plane, attempting to take out a boundless barrage of...

    Review Hotline Miami

    Do you like hurting other people?

    Like the Hollywood classic Drive which provided a large helping of inspiration during development, Hotline Miami is a visceral assault on the senses which often leaves you breathless and sweaty-palmed, but also isn’t afraid to offer up moments of shocking frustration. Part action game, part puzzle title, part...
