Burn baby burn
Flame Over's hot stuff for two reasons: it's got an eye for terribad puns and if you invest the effort it's actually a lot of fun. Laughing Jackal's self-described pyroguelike launched on the PlayStation Vita earlier in the year, offering the fiercest fire fighting foray on PlayStation since Konami's forgotten third-person douser...
Prepare to fry
Real world fire fighting requires perseverance, and Flame Over, a PlayStation Vita roguelike from British indie Laughing Jackal, demands a similar level of dedication. You control the ironically named Blaze, a London-based fireman with a big hat and a bushy moustache. Your objective is to work your way through the various randomly...
Laughing Jackal reveals fiery roguelike
When the developer of the brilliant OMG HD Zombies and Hungry Giraffe says that it's deep into development on a roguelike title featuring firefighters, you should probably pay attention. Fortunately, that’s exactly what Laughing Jackal has announced this afternoon on the PlayStation Blog, revealing
Do you have the deadication?
After some zombie target practice as a PlayStation Minis title, the addictive OMG-Z is back as a full PlayStation Vita game, with Trophies, leaderboards, and a fresh lick of paint. OMG HD Zombies takes the original release's compelling mechanics, and gives them a good old polish, prompting you to venture deeper down the...
Redfield City's never been so dead
The original OMG-Z was a poorly named slice of corpse shuffling chaos; a masochistically moreish arcade puzzler that combined Chillingo’s cult mobile classic Sneezies with Silent Hill. Endowed with less ammo than a Survival run in The Last of Us, the title challenged you to dismantle as many of the undead as...
Paint the town red
All of that grey, white, and red may not make OMG HD Zombies the prettiest title that you’re likely to play on the PlayStation Vita – but it certainly doesn’t stop it from being an apocalyptic treat. The PlayStation Minis version of Laughing Jackal’s decaying arcade endeavour was easily one of the most addictive titles...
Messy Mini gets macabre makeover
OMG-Z, arguably the most moreish PlayStation Mini ever produced, is getting a full PlayStation Vita reboot. Following in the footsteps of Hungry Giraffe, Essex-based indie developer Laughing Jackal has confirmed that it’s currently applying the finishing touches to a full high-definition remake of the portable...
Head and shoulders above the rest
Originally launching over a year ago as a free PlayStation Mini with PlayStation Plus, Hungry Giraffe is the latest game to make the jump from watered-down budget piece to fully-fledged PlayStation Vita title. But while we enjoyed Mr. Giraffe’s original outing, do the new features in this upgraded version warrant...
Cheaper than a Happy Meal, too
The PlayStation Vita port of Laughing Jackal’s likeable mammal munching simulator Hungry Giraffe will scoff a space on the European PlayStation Store tomorrow for just £2.39/€2.99. The fast food-focused twist on the endless climbing genre will include online leaderboards, fresh power-ups, and a new storefront...
The news that Laughing Jackal’s excellent ungulate muncher Hungry Giraffe is stretching onto PlayStation Vita had our stomachs growling louder than a cake connoisseur in a posh coffee shop last week, so we just had to reach out to the Essex-based developer in order to grill them about the upcoming re-release. In between bites of...
On the menu
After appearances on both PlayStation Minis and PlayStation Mobile, Laughing Jackal’s excellent endless runner Hungry Giraffe is heading to the PlayStation Vita for thirds. The upgraded re-release will boast a bevy of new features, including full Trophy support and online leaderboards. It’ll also implement a handful of new skins,...
Cut down to size

Some PlayStation Minis look awful when blown up to a full size, high-definition display
