Was it Iron Maiden that once asked, “Can I play with madness?!” Well, thanks to the clever developers at Rock Pocket Games and Dreamloop Games now you can, Mr Dickinson.

Moons of Madness is clearly a horror game for horror Lovecraft fans, Insert me!

My approach to playing games of this genre is to turn off the lights and strap on a pair of headphones...I’m already scared - Send help!

Headphones are essential when playing horrors - they help turn the milk chocolatey!

During your life, it’s safe to say that you’ll play a video game or two every now and then at the very least. 

If you’re not really a huge gamer, then you’re not exactly going to be staring at a screen as much as the rest of us, and that’s cool. 

You’ll still dabble in a few games here and there, though, due to curiosity! 
Everybody wants to, at the very least, try! 
There’s too much hype behind the gaming industry for you not to be a little interested.

Isle Of Spirits is a casual survival game based on accessibility and simplicity, Isle of Spirits has some really solid ideas but is let down by an oddly rigid, unforgiving end-game and a lack of diversity in the gameplay.

Isle of Spirits begins with your character washed up on the shores of a deserted island, his goal? Escape. 

To do this, you’ll need to build a raft by collecting stone, wood, plants and the like from around the island and lashing them all together so that you can sail to safety.

Liberated is an exciting and surprisingly involving tale with a shifting narrative that is unfortunately marred by technical issues.

Told – very effectively – via the medium of a digital, 4-issue comic book, Liberated is a game that really connects with the player through the narrative.

The desaturated imagery, in an almost cold-blue monochromatic style, drives home the storytelling.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Gaming Glasses was a term that I'd never really come across before but then I noticed a trend via explodingtopics.com which explained that during the COVID 19 outbreak gaming usage spiked and millions of gamers began suffering from dry eyes, dizziness and other symptoms of long gaming sessions. Therefore more people began to use orange-tinted gaming glasses while playing.

I was immediately sceptical of the effectiveness of these so-called 'Gamer Glasses' and set out on an intrepid journey of discovery through my use of Google and typing in those immortal words "Gaming Glasses"

Since the days of the Amiga, I’ve always enjoyed flight simulators with a more casual bent and the bi/triplanes of the first World War have always held a simple majesty. 

When I think of them, I’m reminded of titles such as Red Baron, Blue Max and of course public domain classic Biplanes (BIP). 

The more technical simulators with their keyboard overlays, glacial frame-rates and baffling multiple camera views never appealed to me, my trousers remained firmly buckled in their presence.

Of course, you have. Anyone who’s been on an ocean liner fears the day it’ll be overrun by marauding monsters with a taste for blood and a penchant for attacking people with suspect accents (more on that later).

A mobile port to the Switch, Hill Climbing Mania makes no bones about its similarities to Fingersoft’s 2012 title, Hill Climb Racing.

Whilst this is a ‘snack’ genre that I have had a lot of fun with on mobile platforms, InLogic’s title has too many issues for it to be a recommended purchase.
