    Zen Studios’ pinball game is now a platform on Switch and it’s marvelous.The last time I interacted with Zen Studios’ pinball games was back on the 3DS, with Zen Pinball 3D and Marvel Pinball 3D.

    Utilizes mechanics that should have stayed in the Stone Age.

    A funky fresh rhythm game that innovates even when it complicates.To some extent, rhythm games have been at odds with the actual act of performing music.

  • Riptide GP: Renegade (Switch) Review
    Futuristic and illegal Jet Ski racing at it's finestThe Jet Ski racing genre isn't exactly the most flourishing style of video games nowadays. It seems that racing Jet Skis is - for the most part - a relic of the past. However, back in the 90s there really was no cooler way to ride the waves, and this was well represented in video game form most notably... Read more...
  • Crimsonland (Switch) Review
    The title says it all. Several different twin-stick shooters have hit the Switch eShop this year and from my experience, most have been fairly fun to play. Butcher coated the 2D side-scrolling environment in blood, Neon Chrome presented fun obstacles and upgrades – so now it’s time to take a look at Crimsonland, another shooter from 10tons (who also developed Neon Chrome) and see how it stacks up with the other indies.

  • Dimension Drive (Switch) Review
    How many SHMUPs can you fit on a widescreen TV?Back in the early days of gaming most TVs operated at a 4:3 aspect ratio. This meant that there wasn’t a huge difference in screen space whether scrolling vertically or horizontally. Today as 16:9 TVs are almost universally accepted, vertically scrolling games have encountered a problem: what to do with all that extra horizontal space? Dimension Drive seeks to answer that problem with a unique new gameplay hook. Read more...

  • Mantis Burn Racing (Switch) Review
    Surprisingly the racing is done with cars and not a magnifying glass.

    A fun rogue-like in a small package.
