⚔️๐Ÿฆ Story of a Gladiator | REVIEW | "A wobbling, sideways thumb from the Emperor" ⚔️๐Ÿฆ #GameDev #IndieGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Story Of A Gladiator is a 2D arena fighter that’s fun for a while with great presentation and some tense moments but feels too much like a time killer to be a must-play title.
Story of a Gladiator sets the tone straight away, when your family is taken away from you and your home is destroyed, the player character is then reduced to being a lowly alcoholic beggar.
After some serious self-pitying, you decide to make your fame and fortune in the bloodstained sands of the arena.  And so, in a city under Roman rule, you must hack and slash your way into the annals of history.

When thinking of Pig Eat Ball imagine a game that puts you in control of a pig in disguise as she attempts to suck up tennis inside a clam in order to win pearls and open up more areas of the game map all accompanied by a thumping soundtrack and bat shit crazy psychedelic visuals with an overtone of Hotline Miami and Monty Python.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Everspace is a roguelike single-player game where you fly a spaceship and there is a story, told through flashbacks.
In Everspace, you have to die to succeed. Sounds weird but it’s true! When you die you can use your credits to buy upgrades and even new ships to go back and get farther than the last time.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
A solid single-player, pixel-art Metroidvania, SuperEpic is an absolute joy for the vast majority of its running time but a lacklustre final sprint combined with a diabolical map system detracts from what could have been a truly memorable title.

๐Ÿ•น️๐ŸŽฎ The Argos Catalogue & Video Games in the 1970s, 80s & 90s | A Trip Down Memory Lane ๐Ÿ•น️๐ŸŽฎ #RetroGaming @Argos_Online

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Growing up in the UK as a kid during the 1970s, 80s and 90s meant that the Argos catalogue was a British kid's go-to piece of literature should you want to plan your next birthday or Christmas presents.

My first port of call was always the Video Games section which I looked at on a daily basis leading up to Christmas and Birthdays. My sister and I would play the Argos catalogue game where you would have to choose one item to buy from EVERY page and then initial it. I'd often end up having to circle and initial a duvet set that I didn't want to be followed by a Corby trouser press.


When we got to the Video Games section though the choice would be impossible to make as I was presented with all the latest video games related accessories and consoles!


My love for the Argos catalogue has carried on to this day and I still pick up a copy to circle items while playing the catalogue game.


Then something special happened recently when I stumbled across the Argos Book Of Dreams website which Argos have pulled together to make every Argos catalogue available online in a digital format! argosbookofdreams.co.uk

Britt’s Games of the Year
2019 has been another great year in my gaming career, with a lot of quality titles released. Aside from some real indie classics (my true love), there were also some larger budget titles that caught my eye that I’m happy to include here as games that stuck in my head for 2019… and also a couple that stayed with me for reasons that *ahem* aren’t ideal.

⛳️ BOLF | REVIEW | PC | EARLY ACCESS | "Take The Driver Out The Bag and Get Ready To Hit A Turkey!" ๐ŸŽณ #bolfgame #GameDev #IndieGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
BOLF the video game takes the idea of mixing Ten Pin Bowling with Golf on full-size golf courses and at this moment in time goes about 25% of the way towards turning this into a fully realised video game idea.

I love golf games a lot, to the point where I did a 19 episode Golf video games feature on retro golf games for Games Freezer. 
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnXszwskV-8CbULj8kAjAZtU1kcoUuvO2

Therefore I am always up for new golf video games experiences especially after sampling the delightful What The Golf back in October this year. http://www.gamesfreezer.co.uk/2019/10/what-golf-review-this-is-golf-jim-but.html

⚽ GOLAZO! | Review | Nintendo Switch "A 90's Inspired Arcade Soccer Romp" ⚽ #GolazoTheGame

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
GOLAZO! Evokes the memories I had of playing footy games like Football Champ in the Arcades and the awesome TECMO World Cup series as well as taking inspiration from the SNK football games such as Super Sidekicks.
The game takes on a 7 a side, cartoon, no rules approach to footy games that I simply love in an era when we are swamped with ultra-realistic dull football simulations that have lost their identity and character.
The game is, however, slightly let down by a few small things that annoyed me so let’s take a gander at what I liked and disliked about this little gem before we sum it all up.

I’m a big fan of well-made games that have a tongue firmly in cheek whilst being backed up by fun gameplay. In this regard, Door Kickers: Action Squad delivers shovelfuls of gaming gold.

A slightly different type of game to what I was initially expecting and all the better for it.

Forager doesn’t seem to have a story but it does have some solid gameplay. It’s made by the same people who made Impossible Dungeon which was a four-player game which I personally haven’t played but does look pretty good. Although I don’t usually enjoy games without a story behind them, I did enjoy this one.

2019 has been another incredible year for gaming. Year on year we've not failed to be impressed by the quality of games and consoles that are released. But this year we feel like gaming has come into its own.

For me, Alex Kidd in Miracle World was a game that defined my video games playing childhood. It was a game that everybody seemed to won as it was the pack-in game with the SEGA Master System II.

My best mate Paul had a Master System II and I had the Mark 1 version with the built-in snail game. When Paul got his sleek-looking Master System II I was in awe of its design and size along with the amazing built-in Alex Kidd game.

The Outer Worlds is currently consuming every thought in my brain. I've made a lifelong friend in Parvati and I'm looking after Felix like a big brother while we wander the planets together taking on Marauders and Mantiqueens by the dozen whilst looting the hell out of every stash I can find and making new friends on the way.

When I go to sleep at night I dream of Amber Heights and The Ground Breaker whilst also thinking of how I am going to somehow complete my Tossball Card Collection!

You see the thing is The Outer Worlds has a few things that are collectables but not actually collectables if you catch my drift...

Arthur Parallax reviews….Death Stranding
"I met Hideo Kojima once, well, I say met, I was standing behind him in a chip shop in Burnham-on-Sea called ‘The Battered Husband’ as he ordered fish, chips and mushy peas with loads of vinegar and lashings of brown sauce. Due to his seeming inability to truncate anything combined with how he couldn’t work his way through even a basic sentence without resorting to heavy-handed metaphors relating to existential crises, by the time he had finished reciting his order, his reasons for it and the history behind his reasons for it, the shop had closed and we were ushered hungrily outside. Turning to me, he said that he had never been to Burnham-on-sea before* and asked if I knew of anywhere that would be open that still served food.

๐Ÿš€ Rocket Wars | REVIEW | Nintendo Switch | "Asteroids 2019" ๐Ÿš€ #GameDev #IndieGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Rocket Wars 

Developer Name - Rooftop Panda
Format – Switch 
Price - £10

You are a rocket fighting other rockets. A simple game. I think that it takes inspiration from the 1979 game Asteroids and taking inspiration from a classic is not a bad thing. 

The game sees you flying around like a rocket with simple graphics around an arena type space area.

You use your rocket to destroy other rockets. Fighting against the simulator or against other people in online mode. You can get the chance to fight over different power-ups from lasers to a shotgun burst of bullets.
