PN Review: Rock Zombie (Wii U eShop)

December 18, 2014 |

I am going to start by saying that I love zombie games. Well, I love most zombie games and Rock Zombie was not one of them.  I went into this game hoping for a pretty great zombie slaying experience and … Read More

PN Review: GetClose: A game for RIVALS

December 16, 2014 |

GetClose is one of those titles easier understood with a controller in hand, or in this case hands.  A multiplayer only release, GetClose requires two people to share the same GamePad.  This makes for some “interesting” competition to say the … Read More

PN Review: Shiny the Firefly

Shiny the Firefly tasks you with leading a myriad of lost babies safely to each level exit.  Along the way you’ll need to solve some puzzles for successful navigation, as well as battle (and hide!) from enemies.  The game grabbed … Read More

PN Review: Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric

December 9, 2014 |

Ever since Sonic’s debut into the 3D World, its always been “hit or miss” when it comes to the overall success of the blue blur. We’ve seen the good, the bad and the beyond ugly. When I first saw the … Read More

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: 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

PN Review: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

December 1, 2014 | 6

Nintendo hits the nail on the head once again with their newest release for Wii U, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.  What started out as a small smattering of mini-games in a flagship Mario title for Wii U, is now … 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: 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: 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 | 2

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: 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

‘SDK Paint’ is a new art application from Hullbreach Studios, available on the WiiU eshop. You may have heard of their previous titles such as ‘DSI Paint’ and ‘3DS Paint’. This new version of the “Paint” series offers some pretty cool options and tools … Read More

PN Review: Tengami

November 13, 2014 | 1

 

Tengami may not be the most complicated title on the Wii U, but Nyamyam’s tale is absolutely one of the most unique.

Tengami is designed to be a serene, relaxing game, so it makes sense that the … Read More
