PN Review: Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter

August 29, 2014 |

Thorium Wars was a highly regarded DSiWare game.  Big John Games is no doubt hoping this sequel does even better on the 3DS eShop.  Being featured in Nintendo’s E3 eShop highlights trailer is a good start!  Thorium Wars: Attack of … Read More

PN Review: Frederic – Resurrection of Music

August 27, 2014 |

Frederic Resurrection of Music is a hilariously intriguing rhythm game. Like Guitar Hero or Rock Band your only weapon throughout this journey is your trusty instrument, a piano. The lead character in this game is none other than famous historical composer Frederic Chopin … Read More

Review: ZaciSa’s Last Stand

August 23, 2014 |

I had no clue what I was getting myself into with ZaciSa’s Last Stand. In-fact, I had no idea what the game even looked like. I just blindly took a game that sounded like an adventure. Before you ask, yes, … Read More

PN Review: Jett Tailfin

August 17, 2014 |

Poor games aren’t much fun to review.  Even more frustrating are poor games that actually have potential.  While some titles are just bad all around, others have a good foundation but fall victim to regrettable decisions.  Jett Tailfin is in … Read More

PN Review: Shut The Box (Wii U eShop)

August 15, 2014 |

Shut The Box from developer, RCMADIAX, is a nice little Wii U eShop title but not as fun as previous releases from the indie. Shut The Box is a simple game based off of the ‘board game’.  Typically this game … Read More

August 10, 2014 |

PN Review: Tangram Attack

August 9, 2014 |

Tangram Attack puts a twist on the venerable shape puzzle formula.  You’re no longer putting pieces in place; they’re already positioned.  Instead you’re slicing them apart one by one!  It’s an interesting idea, and enjoyable at first.  Over time though … Read More

PN Review: Steel Empire (3DS eShop)

August 5, 2014 | 1

Somewhere…sometime…in a world almost familiar

PN Review: IQ Test

August 1, 2014 |
