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: SKYPEACE

August 10, 2014 |

SKYPEACE is a fast paced runner (flyer) recently released on the 3DS eShop.  In it you collect coins and treasures, avoid enemies, and try to accumulate high scores.  It’s straightforward fun, with a simple and polished presentation.  Even better, it … 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

PN Review: Steel Empire (3DS eShop)

August 5, 2014 | 1

Somewhere…sometime…in a world almost familiar

Steel Empire is a sci-fi shooter that takes place in an alternative, steam punk history.  The fantastical tale reminds me of Star Wars in a way, with a small rebel group trying to bring peace … Read More

PN Review: Bombing Bastards (Wii U eShop)

August 5, 2014 | 1

Bombing Bastards is Sanuk Games attempt to fill the void that is left from the long missing Bomberman franchise.  The game makes a good attempt at recreating the success of Bomberman but doesn’t quite reach the same level of quality. … Read More

PN Review: IQ Test

August 1, 2014 |

IQ Test is an interesting new release for the Wii U eShop.  In some ways it reminds me of the edutainment titles that I played when the industry was first transitioning from cartridges to cd’s.  It has a bit of … Read More

PNM Review: Wooden Sen’SeY

July 26, 2014 |

Wooden Sen’SeY is a game with many good ideas, but not enough to prop up this title completely.  The visuals are exceptional, and they brand the game with a unique style.  The platforming is nothing extraordinary on it’s own, and … Read More
