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: Siesta Fiesta (3DS eShop)

August 6, 2014 |

Siesta Fiesta is a Breakout styled game with a southwestern twist!  Players will control Siesta in a slew of side scrolling Breakout-esque levels across 8 different environments.  It is quite clear that Mojo Bones spent a lot of time polishing … 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: 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

PN Review: Master Reboot

July 30, 2014 | 9

Master Reboot is a fascinating first-person horror game with a heavy science fiction slant.  The adventure takes place in the “Soul Cloud” where memories of the dying are uploaded to powerful servers.  This way people can live on (in part) … Read More

PN Review: Glory of Generals

July 23, 2014 |

This is a strategy game you might recognize from various mobile devices where you can play it for free.  On 3DS you have to pay $10 for the privilege.  This pricing discrepancy’s not uncommon when mobile titles get ported to … Read More

PN Review: The Letter

July 16, 2014 | 4

For those who see the score and are inclined to stop reading, please don’t.  Scores don’t tell the whole story.  Yes, The Letter (at present) is below average, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not worth buying.  I actually liked more of … Read More

PN Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop)

July 15, 2014 | 1

I have to be honest, when I first saw Armillo in development some time ago I wasn’t very impressed with the game.  A few months prior to release I played a PC build of the game and I was convinced … Read More

PN Review: Poker Dice Solitaire Future (Wii U eShop)

July 15, 2014 |

Poker Dice Solitaire Future is the second game to be released on Wii U from indie developer RCMADIAX.  The first title was a small puzzle game called Blok Drop U.  Poker Dice isn’t another puzzle game but rather a Yahtzee … Read More

PN Review: Bike Rider DX2 Galaxy

July 14, 2014 |

The initial Bike Rider was a favorite 3DS eShop game of mine last year, and its sequels positioned to fare comparably.  With most of the original action preserved plus many new features, Bike Rider DX2 Galaxy is a decidedly worthy follow up that … Read More

PN Review: My Jurassic Farm (Wii U eShop)

July 8, 2014 |

My Jurassic Farm has tall tasks for its players.  Placing you on an island with just a single dinosaur and a mere $100, you must essentially build the next (non-deadly) version of Jurassic Park.  Despite the fun dino theme however, … Read More

PN Review: Internal Invasion

July 6, 2014 |

Internal Invasion has you taking control of a nano-bot named Robert, who’s been injected into the body of a sick patient and tasked with restoring their health.  The story gave me flashbacks to the game Microcosm, a pretty but shallow … Read More
