I’m stuck on my train on the way home on a Thursday evening, the train I’m on has stopped and hasn’t moved in the last 15 minutes. Then I remember that I have Beat Cop on my iPhone to play, so I whip it out and get stuck into this great pixel art 80’s police shows inspired video game.

Pre-fight stealth sections add a new angle to the turn-based strategy formula present in Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden (MYZ: RTE) and the story, whilst quite generic is rich with atmosphere and the unforgiving gameplay is just on the right side to keep you involved without it feeling hugely unfair.

If your PC is starting to feel a bit sluggish you may be thinking it is time to replace it. They are not cheap though, and a better option could be to look at ways of improving its performance.

PC upgrades could save you a lot of money and make your PC feel like a new machine.

It subsequently appeared on NES, SFC, and the PC Engine. This upgraded release of the original arcade version includes HD ready elements by developer Starfish-SD, the company formed by the original HOT-B development team.

For the first time, live online leaderboards will add a worldwide competitive quality to the game not possible before."๐Ÿ’

Game Title: Iron Crypticle
Developer: Confused Pelican
Platform reviewed: Nintendo Switch
Rating: Ice Cool
Playing like a four-player version of Super Smash TV with RPG elements, Iron Crypticle went down a storm at a recent multiplayer night at mine, the clever use of random generation and unlockable items to make each dungeon delve more varied as well as ramping up the replay value immensely.
Fun in single player but elevated above and beyond in the mighty form of local co-op, Iron Crypticle is a keeper.

๐Ÿ”Ž Review: Call Of Cthulu "Not so much a call as a distant whimper" ๐Ÿ”Ž #GameDev #IndieGame

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Game Title: Call of Cthulhu
Developer: Cyanide
Platform Reviewed: Playstation 4
The main bulk of my knowledge of Cyanide as developers comes from their previous titles Of Orcs and Men and Styx: Master of Shadows, two titles that, whilst quite rigid in their gameplay, kept me involved until the end.
Whereas in terms of H.P Lovecraft in the gaming medium, the two main touchpoints for me are 2005’s Dark Corners of the Earth and the more recent Conarium, both tasty titles for different reasons.
This new title, Call of Cthulhu, whilst having some great moments, never felt like it got into a flow for me, too many moving parts and a leaping narrative removed my sense of immersion and also interest, ultimately making the latter half of the game feel like a trudge.

๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿง  Can Gaming Give You These Life Skills? ๐Ÿง ๐ŸŽฎ

Gaming is an adventure, a way to relax and to catch up with friends.

But have you ever stopped to think it could be teaching you valuable skills?

Yep, it turns out that all the times your parents yelled at you for spending hours hammering away at your controller in your games room, they might have been wrong about it being a waste of time - because you were actually developing a whole host of useful attributes.

Of course, there is no denying that there can be a dark side to excessive gaming - the media is rife with stories of addiction and anti-social behaviour -, but there's also an underreported good side.

๐Ÿ”Ž Review: Observer 'A great way to spend a few ‘Hauers’ ๐Ÿ”Ž @BlooberTeam @BrittRecluseuk #GameDev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Game Title: Observer
Developer: Bloober team
Platform Reviewed: PS4
Rating: Ice Cool
Everything is improved by adding Rutger Hauer, the movie veteran of classics such as Blade Runner (most applicable here), Salute of the Jugger, The Hitcher, Surviving the Game and dozens more besides (yes, even Armageddon with Mark Dacascos, a better film than the 1998 Michael Bay one) provides the physical basis and voices the protagonist of Observer, Daniel Lazarski.
A cop for the KPD (Krakow Police Department), his speciality is hacking into neural implants and ‘observing’ memories to piece together crime scenes. Set almost exclusively in a rundown tenement building in a dystopian Poland, Observer manages to convey a rich world full of dubious history in a relatively claustrophobic setting. Good.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots
Rating: Ice Cool

When I first received this game for review, I must admit that, from the trailer I assumed it was a tedious endless runner, possibly ported from mobile platforms and so I began to set up the rickety stool and noose, however, I was hugely surprised to see that the game offers far more depth and challenge than I initially expected.

Game Title – Pang Adventures

I sat down to play Pang Adventures with my girlfriend, as it has always shone (as does everything) in local co-op.
After the first training round which probably lasted less than ten seconds, I turned to her and said, “I’m addicted to this”.
What followed were a couple of hours of us ploughing through the first 40 or so (out of 100) levels and I fully intend to carry on tonight, I love it.
