Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Sherlock: The Network’

the-network

We don’t usually get into iOS and Android games in this series because the once innovated platform for creativity has become a cesspit for knock-offs and endless ‘games’ designed to strain every last cent out of players pockets. We do keep half an eye on the App Store though, because we occasionally catch something worthwhile. … Continue reading

Publisher: Cryptozoic Players: 2-4 Play Time: 45 Minutes Genre: Dice rolling, hand management Review: Oh dear. Oh dearie dear. Here’s a game that went from Kickstarter success story to cautionary tale.

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘This War of Mine’

this war of mine

War is hell, man. Not that you’s know it from the average output from the video game industry. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare had a fairly well executed anti-war message but it kinda got over shadowed by handing the players a big machine gun and entertaining them by hitting the front lines and kicking ass. … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ’80 Days’

80-Days

Ah, the glory days of the iOS App store, where bedroom programmers and artists flocked to the new platform to build their careers on innovation and originality.

It now shares shelf space with GTA5, Far Cry 4 and Shadows of Mordor. Usually I like my games with more story and … Continue reading

The-Binding-Of-Isaac-Rebirth

Binding of Isaac is a retro style dungeon crawler from the creators of Super Meat Boy. From … Continue reading

SunOD6

By Hedge Available on: Xbox One Exclusive Insomniac Games are known mostly these days for Resistance, but before that they helmed the fantastic cute-and-crazy shooter series Ratchet and Clank and the Spyro games back when they were about a cute dragon named Spyro spitting fire and not buying toys to use in game like some … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Gods Will Be Watching’

Gods Will Be Watching

Here’s something I’m getting tired off…indie games using retro graphics. We’ve had enough. On the other hand, when it’s supported by an original concept, a unique gameplay mechanic and interesting characters the game could be made out of matchsticks and still interest me. That brings us to Gods Will Be Watching, which is already a great … Continue reading
