Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Although Tanzia is a game that initially charms with its cute characters, vibrant colours, joyful sound track and strong introduction sequence, the actual playing of the game feels like a HD re-master of a PS2 game with floaty, weightless controls and repetitive game play that unfortunately takes away too much  fun from the title to make it a recommended purchase.

Lamplight City (Preview) by Grundislav Games
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of adventure games in all forms, having enjoyed the genre over the last thirty years, sometimes a newly released game can be truly great but the tired reliance on illogical ‘use item on  other item’ puzzles and pixel-hunting can too often cloud over great writing and sumptuous, hand-drawn artwork.

Game Title: Crossing Souls
Developer: Fourattic
Platform reviewed: Nintendo Switch
Rating: Ice Cool
There has been a wave of 80s-related games in recent times (as well as throughout all media) and Crossing Souls continues this trend unabashedly. 
Set in American suburbia, Crossing Souls tells the story of a group of children and their involvement with the mysterious Duat stone. 
A fun game with a strong aesthetic and great music, although the game play feels a bit light in certain parts, although the story is fun enough to keep the interest up.

The list of shame for me is a list of those video games that you almost feel like you should've played by now because everyone else loves them or you know you'd love but just never got round to playing them.

Maybe you feel like you've played the game because you've seen so many videos and pictures but then realise that you never actually played the game and maybe just watched someone else play it?

As games players, we all know that it’s impossible to play all the games in the world. 
Hell; its often impossible just to play all the games we actually buy!

I regularly buy games in a Steam sale which I know will download straight to the back of the queue; confused and surprised, having expected to immediately be mummy’s, new baby. 
But NO; they wait an eternity, naked in cold oblivion.
But those games are the lucky ones. 

Sometimes, some games pass you by completely and don’t even get to your list in the first place.
Either way, these are the games which I have never played and which cause me shame.

Esper is a VR puzzle game that uses telekinesis to test your skills in solving unique 3D puzzles to progress through the game.

You are a trainee in a government-funded retro spy institution that evaluates new recruits telekinesis powers. 

You start the game on your first day in the government centre undergoing telekinesis assessment tests, checking how well you can use mind powers to carry out your spy missions.

Having been a fan of Wadjet Eye Games for years, I must admit that I just assumed that Unavowed would continue their streak of making great games with the foundation solidly placed on an involving narrative set in an immersive world. 

As impressive as their oeuvre has been over the last decade, with pinnacles of the graphic adventure genre such as Technobabylon, Gemini Rue and the Blackwell series, their hit streak continues with what could possibly be my favourite game thus far, Unavowed.

Some of my favourite moments in video games have come from wandering off the beaten track with a few scraps in my inventory, looking through bins for a few bullets or food to eat. 
There’s something about those scrappy early stages of games such as Fallout that gets lost in the later game when you are wielding laser Gatling guns with companions made of golden sunlight, one-hit killing everything in your path with thousands in the bank. 
Those moments when you don’t know if you’ll survive the next attack or even if you’ll stave of starvation long enough to die in the fight in the first place!

"A deeply flawed comedic murder mystery"

I’ve played quite a few graphic adventure games in my time, some I’ve loved and some that had their issues but Detective Case and Clown Bot in: The Express Killer (DCCB) could well be the worst point and click game that I’ve ever played.

Game Title: Caves of Qud (early access)


I feel ill-equipped to preview Caves of Qud (COQ) because the only other pure roguelike game that I’ve played in any real depth was Ancient Domains of Mystery, a few months ago (A game that I found to be more initially accessible than Caves of Qud) and I’m glad I did, because compared to this game, ADOM was a breeze.
