SKATER XL PS4 REVIEW
I have always been a fan of skating games ever since I got my first PlayStation 2. I particularly enjoyed playing Tony Hawk Underground 1 & 2, which offered a lot of fun challenges. Today, I want to share my thoughts on Skater XL, a skateboarding simulation game that takes a more serious and authentic approach.

Zool Redimensioned PS4 Review 8/10 "A Celebration of a Very Nineties Game" ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿญ @WeAreSecretMode #IndieGames #GameDev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
You must feel sorry for Zool, the Ninja from the Nth Dimension. He's fast, he's nimble, he's the star of his own 2D side-scroller... but he got introduced to the world right between the releases of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Poor guy never stood a chance.

Despite not becoming a mascot for the entire industry and inspiring two Jim Carrey vehicles, Zool maintains a place in my heart and some small cult status among fans who didn't grow up with a Nintendo or Sega console. He wasn't Mario or Sonic, but he was ours.

Thirty years after his first title, Sumo Digital Academy (an internship based in Sheffield) has built a remarkably faithful remake, essentially presenting the game as it was with some welcome tweaks to the gameplay, a surprising number of visual options and some fun modes to give this very old, very short game a new lease of life.

Watch Rich's Video Review for SAVE ROOM on the PS4. It's an inventory management puzzler that is strangely enjoyable and Zen. If you enjoyed Resident Evil 4 then you'll love this!

"When you enter a save room you know you are safe, no danger can come to you, you can relax. Take advantage of this short period of time to organize your inventory, heal your wounds and reload your weapons. Can you make all the items fit in your inventory?"

If you loved the original SNES games then you'll adore this!

Pocky and Rocky Reshrined sits somewhere between a sequel and a remaster. With the opening stages being a re-run of the original SNES games and only as you progress through the levels does it then deviate to a different and even confusing new story. To be fair to the game beyond those early levels this is definitely a NEW Pocky & Rocky game and maybe those early levels were in there to get the nostalgia glands flowing with nostalgia juice before the new stuff kicks in.

๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ‘Š Final Vendetta PS4 Gameplay Ten Minute Taster "An Ode To final Fight" ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ‘Š @NumskullGames @BitmapBureau #GameDev #IndieGames

Final Vendetta is a hard-hitting action-packed beat ‘em up for 1 or 2 players in the vein of classic arcade titles. Featuring stunning pixel art and a thumping soundtrack with exclusive tracks from Utah Saints! Brawl with bad dudes and tough girls as you fight through dangerous environments.

The notorious “Syndic8” gang are slowly taking control of the capital and has kidnapped Claire Sparks’ younger sister. Unfortunately for them, Claire will do whatever it takes to get her back and crush anyone who stands in her way! She teams up with her two friends (and housemates) - retired pro-wrestler Miller T. Williams and Duke Sancho, the streetwise bare-knuckle fighter. Together they must battle and brawl their way through the mean streets of London in a risky mission to reunite Claire with her sister.

Claire Sparks, a student and martial arts expert, has become unwillingly embroiled in the rescue of her sister. Duke Sancho is a quick-witted, bare-knuckle fighter from London, earning his nickname after a brawl in the Duke of Wellington pub. Not forgetting the towering figure of Miller T. Williams; a Canadian ex-pro wrestler controversially removed from competitions for use of excessive force. Together the three friends must battle their way through the streets of London on a dangerous journey to bring back Claire’s sister!

The gameplay mechanics are sure to go down well with fans of the genre, giving players a vast array of moves and the ability to block, run, dodge, strike downed opponents, and even perform juggle combos! Each character has a unique feel and move set that the player will have to master.

Final Vendetta has a thumping soundtrack featuring brand new and exclusive tracks from Utah Saints, Featurecast and Krafty Kuts! The UK is known for its dance music scene and this electrifying soundtrack compliments all the action Final Vendetta has to offer in tremendous style. 

• Hardcore fighting action that pulls no punches.

• Stunningly animated pixel art.

• A thumping dance/techno soundtrack featuring exclusive tracks from Utah Saints and Featurecast.

• 1 or 2 player co-op.

• 3 playable characters with varying fighting styles.

• 6 areas to battle your way through.

• Classic beat-‘em-up gameplay with fresh mechanics.

• 4 exciting game modes – Arcade, Survival, Versus & Boss Rush.

• 3 difficulty settings.

• Several unlockables.

• Dozens of moves and combos to master.

• An array of succulent street food to sample.

⚔️ Royal Frontier | PS4 | Review | 8/10 | “Choose Your Own Death” ⚔️ @RatalaikaGames #IndieGame #IndieGameDev

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

Royal Frontier popped into our games code bucket and it was a title that immediately intrigued me with its classic looking pixel art style straight out of the SNES era which I am always a sucker for.

Royal Frontier is a Roguelite, Run Based, Choose Your Own Adventure (death), Pixel Art game with a ton of charm and an engaging turn-based battle system. As you might already be able to tell, I really liked my time with Royal Frontier (even though I didn’t think I would at first).

When the apocalypse arrives it’ll probably be kinda boring. Games like Fallout, The Last of Us, and Days Gone are all razzle-dazzle combat, world-changing drama, and malformed flesh-eating monsters to mulch.

Contrast that with 35mm, in which I spent an hour trudging through an abandoned village trying to find a bucket so I could use a grubby broken-down well. Let’s face it, that’s probably a more realistic scenario for you if civilisation collapsed.

๐Ÿฉธ๐ŸŒณ Blair Witch - VR Edition | PSVR | Review | 2/10 | "In 1999 I spent a summer working as a lumberjack" ๐Ÿฉธ๐ŸŒณ @PixelHunted @BlairWitchGame #IndieGame #IndieGames #GameDev

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

In 1999 I spent a summer working as a lumberjack in the mountains outside of Durango, Colorado. Each Saturday night we’d pile into a pickup and head into town to the multiplex. One visit, having exhausted most of what was on offer, we decided to roll the dice on The Blair Witch Project. None of us had heard anything about the movie, but a horror movie about a witch? Rad.

Turns out that The Blair Witch Project is the absolute worst film to watch if you’re camping out in the woods that night. With no evidence to the contrary I thought it was real and - though I still doubted the existence of actual witches - I spent the night sleeping in the backseat of someone’s car. The Blair Witch Project remains the most terrifying experience I’ve had in a cinema and makes me basically the prime target for Blair Witch VR.
