Bad Dream Coma - PC

Point-and-click video games seem to be having a bit of a renaissance. With new titles like Obduction and Thimbleweed Park, and remasters to such classics as Full Throttle and the Monkey Island series, it seems the adventure gaming fan has it all.
Even the indies are getting in on the action, as evidenced by the release of Bad Dream: Coma, developed by Desert Fox and published by PlayWay back in March.

☆ Review: 911 Operator - *Whisky Tango, Charlie…and I’ll have a rum and coke* ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

The last Polish game I played was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which I played, or rather, inhaled for a solid month back in January. I recall something dawning on me whilst playing it, namely that I have always thoroughly enjoyed video games that come from Eastern Europe, there’s something about the mood of the landscape and the way of life in that area that the native game developers are able to channel into their video games. 

Whether it be multi-million-selling franchises such as the aforementioned Witcher series, underrated gems like S.TA.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl or flawed but fun games such as Hard Truck Apocalypse, Boiling Point and Planet Alcatraz (come on guys, translate the sequel for me!) the games always seem to have real character and a sense of boldness and personality.

I just wanted to say all of this so that you, the reader fully understands why I removed my trousers when I realised whilst reading the accompanying press kit that 911 Operator was developed in Warsaw. I clicked the install button with a Gary Busey grin.

Lil Tanks - PC

The story of Lil Tanks begins when an alien race known as The Cuur who invade earth with the intention of taking over. After quickly wiping out all of the earth’s armies and poisoning the atmosphere, the remaining remnants of humankind’s military set to work to fashion the only weapons capable of defeating the alien invaders. These weapons are called Lil Tanks. The reason why they’re named this is unclear as they don’t seem to be all that small.

In all honesty, it doesn’t really matter as the story of Lil Tanks is largely irrelevant.

Deer God - PC Version Reviewed

The Deer God is a tough one for me to review. During my three to four hours with the game, I went from disliking it, to loving it, back to hating it and finally to accepting it as just an okay title. While definitely a very pretty, serene and thoughtful side-scrolling platformer, there are some questionable gameplay flaws that ultimately let The Deer God down.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Herald - PC The trailer of Herald exudes style and genuinely feels like something a little different. As far as I know I’ve never played a video game developed by a Dutch team with the exception of Killzone back on the Playstation 2 which obviously differs greatly from the visual novel genre.


Upon starting Herald, the craftsmanship on offer is clear and the fact that this is coming from a small development team of only four people is astonishing.


Wispfire has been working on Herald since 2014 and I’m pleased to say that it was worth their time and it is definitely worth yours.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I started playing Fallout 4 back in October 2016 as I received it as a birthday present from my wife.

6 months later and I’m still playing this amazing game!

It’s a marvel of a game that keeps me exploring the vast world that Bethesda crafted so well.

I’m still stumbling across parts of the map that I am yet to discover and I have discovered 301 out of 326 available locations in the standard game with no DLC added.

As always though, if you spend this much time with any video game you begin to notice the room for improvement that much more.

I’m going to vent my main improvements that I would like to see and hopefully, you will let me know whether you agree with me and maybe suggest some more improvements.

Over the course of the last few days, I’ve been delving into Shu for the first time prior to its Vita release.

Last week I was getting stuck into Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap as it got its PS4 release.

This feels like a good time, therefore, to get misty eyed again for all the awesome platform video games that I have played over the years.

This time though I’m removing all Super Mario games as of course, the Mario franchise is the perfect example of platforming perfection.

So this list maybe should be entitled “If Super Mario Didn’t Exist”
