PN Review: Thomas Was Alone

December 5, 2014 |

Thomas Was Alone is a puzzle platformer that’s as much an experience as it is a game.  With so many elements coming together in such splendid ways, it is greater than the sum of its parts.  The positive impression it’s … Read More

PN Review: The Swapper (Wii U)

December 3, 2014 |

The Swapper is a very interesting game: it immediately sets a bleak mood, yet is very enjoyable to play.  It’s a platformer/puzzle game, set in a dark sci-fi world, where you play as the lone survivor on a damaged space station, … Read More

PN Review: Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom

December 2, 2014 |

 “Soooooo what time is it?  Top-down Adventure Time!”

A few months back I reviewed a game called Ittle Dew, and discovered that Zelda clones can be good fun.  Which is what drew me to this new Adventure Time game, despite … Read More

PN Review: Heptrix

December 1, 2014 |

Heptrix is a falling block puzzler in the Tetris mold.  There’s a bit of a 7 theme with it – each block consists of 7 pieces, every fallen piece is worth 7 points, you clear 7 lines to advance a … Read More

November 30, 2014 |

Another art application for the Nintendo 3DS, this one has a rather interesting title. ‘Scary Girl Illustration Kit’ by Square One Games Inc. is a spin off of an adventure platform game called ‘Scary Girl’ that was released in 2012 for multiple systems. This vector drawing program uses tools … Read More

PN Review: Battleminer

November 30, 2014 | 3

I’ve a confession to make – I’m one of those who’ve never played Minecraft.  We do exist, at least according to my very informal Twitter poll.  So apologies to those wanting many comparisons, as I’m mainly going off videos.  On … Read More

PN Review: Snake Den

November 25, 2014 |

Use cunning, quick reflexes, and sheer luck to grow a tail to brag about.

Playing Snake Den evokes some nostalgia – Surround on the 2600, light cycling in Tron, gaming on my first cell phone, etc.  Nearly everything about this … Read More

PN Review: Chat-A-Lot

November 24, 2014 |

Chat-A-Lot is a new 3DS application designed to connect you with those on your friend list.  This program has many serious issues though.  Your initial (and fair) question might be ‘What does this offer that can’t be found elsewhere for … Read More

PN Review: Sportsball

November 20, 2014 |

Sportsball is as much a party game as it is a sports one.  It’s described by the developers as “soccer, jousting, and flying birds”, and that’s a spot on synopsis.  Read on as I expound on the game’s specifics, and … Read More

PN Review: Persona Q Shadow of the Labyrinth – A Beautiful Grind

November 20, 2014 |

A wise man once said, “I have no idea what’s going on.” This may be the best way to sum up my Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth experience. Persona is an extremely popular franchise, and Q is the first … Read More

November 20, 2014 | 1

Update: This review has been updated with a score after time spent with the online features.

PN Review: Xavier

November 19, 2014 |

Xavier is a prehistoric platformer where you help a young caveman on his coming of age quest.  It’s a very straightforward affair, totally functional yet unimaginative.  On a system with no shortage of high quality platformers, generic games like this … Read More

PN Mini-review: Mario Kart 8 DLC Wrap-up

November 19, 2014 | 1

As most avid Mario Kart fans would know by now, Nintendo’s first paid downloadable content (DLC) for Mario Kart 8 was released last weekend. We’ve had a few days to play through the pack, which contains eight new courses, three new … Read More

PN Review: Safari Quest

November 18, 2014 |

Some months back I reviewed a game called Atlantic Quest, a match three affair that’s better than many.  Safari Quest is from the same developer and publisher, and basically Atlantic Quest in different environments.  It’s still enjoyable, although it offers … Read More

PN Review: Shuttle Rush

November 17, 2014 |

As a fan of both 2D platformers and science fiction, I was drawn to Shuttle Rush.  The action unfolds on an alien space station, where you’re trying to escape the hostile natives while also surviving a serious air shortage.  The … Read More
