Mini Review Rustler (PS5) - Silly Medieval Sandbox Houses Enjoyable Old-School GTA Clone
Tis but a scratch
For as iconic as Grand Theft Auto unquestionably is, it often feels like its PS1 origins have been resigned to the past.

Rustler...

First Impressions Rustler on PS5, PS4 Is Old-School GTA in Medieval Times
Rockstar is in a league of its own when it comes to modern open world games, but its back catalogue of isometric Grand Theft Auto games remains iconic for players of a certain age.

News Rustler Is Retro Grand Theft Auto in Ye Olde Days for PS5, PS4
It’s surprising to us that more indie developers haven’t looked to the classic style of Grand Theft Auto gameplay, but Rustler is wearing its inspiration on its chain mail. Billed as a Medieval sandbox for PlayStation 5 and PS4, this is a throwback isometric experience featuring an “historically inaccurate world”. The blurb...

Mini Review Skully - Knack Meets Marble Madness
Whose idea was it to kick-start the PlayStation 4 generation with Knack and then proceed to end it with a game inspired by the popular mascot? We joke, of course, but Skully really does borrow those basic elements of brawling and platforming to create a somewhat enjoyable experience targeted at kids. That is to say that players beyond...
Mini Review Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break - Fun, Oddball Tower Defence with Awkward Level Editor
Rock 'em, sock 'em
Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break isn't a huge departure for the series; it's still an odd mix of tower defence and, er, chucking a boulder down a precarious hill. The comical, historical story mode remains the main attraction, with plenty of adversaries to defeat and side activities to play. You'll be playing skee-ball and racing...

News Rock of Ages 3 Is Off Its Rocker in PAX East 2020 Gameplay
Eccentric competitive tower defence threequel Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break still looks utterly bananas in this 13-minute gameplay clip from PAX East 2020.

Review Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince - Gorgeous Puzzle Platformer Is a Return to Form
Saving the kingdom, one floating box at a time
The first two games in Frozenbyte’s Trine series were whimsical 2D puzzle platformers. A third title, Artifacts of Power, switched to 3D and offered a shorter adventure that left some fans cold. Trine 4 throws away that extra dimension, and feels much more like the series at its best. Returning...

News Rock of Ages III: Make & Break Rolls onto PS4 in 2020
With a boulder new hook
We rather liked Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder. The series is an entertaining blend of tower defence and racing, sort of. It's an oddball experience, but the act of throwing a huge boulder down a hill, dodging obstacles and aiming to smash into the castle at the bottom, is surprisingly good fun. The last game arrived on...
Review Bear With Me: The Complete Collection - Surprisingly Deep Film Noir Point & Click Action
On the surface, Bear With Me appears to be little more than an amusing, story-driven, point and click adventure, infused with the tone and style of noir classics like The Maltese Falcon. However, there's much more at play within this clever episodic tale. The plights of Amber, Flint, and (collective sigh) Ted. E Bear amidst the...

News Degrees of Separation Devs Talk About Hot and Cold Gameplay in New Video
We've seen this type of game before, one in which you control two characters or objects simultaneously, but Degrees of Separation looks to turn up the heat -- and turn it down. This curious little game sees you guiding two characters in parallel worlds - single player or co-op - as they try to help each other out, and it looks like a...

Hot or cold
Degrees of Separation looks like it'll be a neat indie platformer, but its initial announcement passed us by a few months back.

The game is based around temperature, with...
Review Override: Mech City Brawl - Fun But Flawed Giant Robot Fighting
Mech it count
Override: Mech City Brawl is a surprisingly fun time, at least, for the first few hours.

But look beyond its shiny...
