Project Root Review

An interesting combination of classic shoot 'em ups and EA's Strike series

April 29, 2015 - When a game combines elements to form its own identity, the result is always interesting. Project Root features the bullet-dodging arcade gameplay of retro shoot 'em ups with rotational movement controls similar to the Strike games. Is this a winning combination or are you better off sticking to the roots of these genres?

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 Review

Throw your hands in the air and wave 'em like you just don't care

March 20, 2015 - Believe it or not, Kinect has been available for almost half a decade and it's still rolling out games. Of course, it's not as fresh and exciting as it was back in 2010, but that doesn't mean that it isn't any fun. The newly released Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 will have Kinect owners asking if this sequel to last generation's controller-less hit is worth all of the arm strain or is it better to fiddle with buttons and sticks?

Q*bert Rebooted Review

Q*bert Rebooted Review

Some retro games should stay in the past

February 18, 2015 - In a world full of arcade-inspired indies, it's intriguing to see an actual remake of a classic arcade game. If you've played the original Q*bert then you'll generally know what to expect. A few additions and updates help freshen it up a bit for the modern age, but is it worth downloading a copy or is it only for fans? Before we get to the review, it should be mentioned that this package contains the original Q*bert (which is a pretty decent bonus), but it won't be covered in this review since I've already reviewed it here.

Hyper Void Review

Hyper Void Review

It'll take a great deal of firepower to tame this tempest

February 16, 2015 - Arcade shooters are a dime a dozen but very few draw inspiration from Atari's Tempest. Hyper Void offers plenty of satisfying gameplay that more than fills this gap in the market, but is it worth exploring the void or should you keep your ship docked?
