Happy Room Review

Every once in a while a person needs to blow off some steam after a long day’s work. Happy Room is the perfect stress reliever for these types of situations with its violent, sandbox-style gameplay.

Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior Review

Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior opens with a screen that looks very similar to old arcade cabinet “Winners don’t use drugs” screens, only in this case it says “Winners don’t use saves”. There are no save slots or mid-level checkpoints in Cybarian. Once you exit the level, the game has no memory of your progress....

However, Golf Peaks is actually a tile-based puzzle game that requires a sharp mind rather than golfing skill. A unique card-based movement...

Marble It Up! Review

Marble It Up! is a puzzle-platformer where you must carefully navigate through an obstacle course as a rolling marble. This concept is one we’ve seen many times before, but it works extremely well on the Nintendo Switch. Marble Madness (1984) first pioneered the idea of a marble platformer and was followed decades later by the...

Project Warlock Review

Project Warlock opens to an image of the protagonist fighting off a horde of monsters while upbeat metal plays. The tone is perfectly conveyed through this scene and it only compounds when you click “New Game” and are immediately dropped into a room with a weapon and a spider biting your heels. Project Warlock is...
