    Review Dear Esther: Landmark Edition

    Oh dear oh dear

    The PlayStation 4 release of Dear Esther sits in a bit of an odd place. The game originally released in early 2012 on the PC and many players will have already experienced its spiritual successor, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. This new version, dubbed the Landmark Edition, does include a few extras such as developer commentary but...

  • 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. Anyway,...

    Review Action Henk

    Henk on a second

    If we had a dollar for every platformer that's passed through the venerable doors of the Push Square Towers in the last few years, we probably wouldn't be writing about games on the Internet anymore. Instead, we'd be sitting on a private island somewhere, sipping on a liquid gold martini served to us in a solid gold martini goblet...

    Review Pumped BMX +

    Ah, the iconic BMX bike – made a cinematic icon in the '80s thanks to E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, BMX Bandits, and erm, well, let's just leave it there. Anyway, here's a game that loves the "art" of BMX riding and has been developed by actual "BMXers" – and having been a hit on mobile devices, it hops onto the PlayStation 4,...

    Review The Swindle

    Robotic robbery

    It's a well-known fact that, back when Britain had an empire, you couldn't step into the foggy London night without occasionally tripping over the odd robot here and there. Every house and factory had a small army for protection, complete with complicated computers and pressure-sensitive mines. Like a pair of Queen Victoria's...

  • News Action Henk Will Be the Butt of All Jokes on PS4, PS3, Vita

    Hopefully it won't hit a bum note

    When you're a washed up 80s action movie star, there's only one way to reclaim fame: use your flabby ass. Ew, not like that – though we daresay it would do the job. No, we're thinking of Action Henk – the butt-sliding smash from RageSquid Games. In this irreverent indie – being ported to the PS4, PS3, and Vita...

    Review Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones

    Patience test chamber

    Office politics can be a killer. As anybody who has ever had to share a tuna salad baguette with Gina from accounting will attest, we're all just one wrong word away from snapping. Usually that takes the guise of making off-hand comments about a 55-year-old's fascination with leopard skin underwear and tight skirts, but what if...
