Playing like an Indie version of Mario Maker (MM) with a fantastical ancient Greek theme, Million to One Hero (MTOH) adds a twist on things by also throwing in the ability to add a narrative to your tale, something which works well and adds depth to your created adventures.

I originally played the first Hotline Miami game on my PS Vita several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, although I never got around to the sequel. re-playing the game now, it is clear that the magic is still there and the ability to have both games in one place is a nice feature but there are some things about the collection that detract from the experience.

The Isle Of Wight is my happy place when it comes to UK Holidays. 

Firstly the place is beautiful and totally laid back.

Secondly, there's still lots of lovely Arcade Machines knocking about which means that I can have some fun in Amusement Arcades aside from the usual sea of grab machines and penny pushers.

In honour of my holiday to the Wight Isle here are some pics of two IOW destinations where I found some cool arcade machines.

Are Today's Cartoon Games To Blame For Violence?

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Cartoon games have been given a rough ride as of late. The media seems to paint the picture of games as the villain. They have been blamed for exposing children to violence. But this is a very one-sided image. To completely blame cartoon games for showcasing violence would be vastly unfair. In fact, some people would go as far as to say that games are not responsible for this at all. And, if you delve a little bit deeper then you may find that you agree with this.

Rocky is the video game based on the popular series of Rocky movies, released for the Sega Master System in 1987. The player must train Rocky Balboa before each fight to improve his skills.

With Mick in my corner watch me as I dance my way to defeat!

๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ›ธ Pawarumi Review {Nintendo Switch} "choose your shooting tactics wisely" ๐Ÿ›ธ๐Ÿ‘ฝ #GameDev #IndieGame

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Pawarumi on Nintendo Switch tasks you with choosing your shooting tactics wisely to either deal out double damage to your enemies, regenerate your protective shields or to recharge your Super Attack!

Pawarumi immediately offers you three different weapons and one super attack out of the gate.

Weapons are colour coded and depending on the colour of the enemy you hit with the coloured weapon will depend on the positive effect you will have on your damage, shields or super attack.

Game Title: Super Mutant Alien Assault - Developer: Cybernate - Platform Reviewed: Switch
Billed by the developers as ‘The Citizen Kane of Super Crate Box clones’
(A game I have never played and so am unable to comment on)
Super Mutant Alien Assault puts you in the shoes of a lowly security droid (or two, in the case of the local co-op mode) that has to clear out waves of  enemies in a series of 2D rooms whilst completing basic tasks such as carrying canisters from one machine to another or cooling generators that slowly overheat, all the while picking up a selection of random guns and grenades to help you destroy the ever-appearing alien menace.
