PN Review: Ice Cream Surfer

September 14, 2014 |

“Welcome to Ice Cream Surfer.  Are you ready to free the universe from the Evil Vegetables?”

PN Review: Tappingo 2

September 5, 2014 |

Tappingo was an enjoyable puzzle game released earlier in the year, and this newly launched sequel looks to continue things.  It is more of the same, but is that bad?  Not when it’s as fun and polished as this picross … Read More

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

August 26, 2014 | 1

Taking two of the most popular series from Nintendo’s handhelds and combining them in a highly anticipated crossover, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney could be a joy for fans of either.  For a while it looked like this … Read More

PN Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop)

August 25, 2014 | 1

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

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
