James Ireland On March - 13 - 2011

I decided to take a second look at this game as my initial impressions of it were very positive, under the workload of a few weeks ago I handed this game to one of our fellow staff members and the score was not favourable. It was a slight oversight on my behalf for distributing such a game that was not best suited for the reviewer and in essence that goes against what we stand for here but we learn from that and move on. So, having played video games since 1989 and playing well over 40 different types of Arkanoid/Breakout clones, who better judge than myself to decipher whether Ion Ball is any good. Here’s the video review;

Alien Breed 3: Descent

A few months ago, I set about reviewing Alien Breed 2: Assault. I found that while it was a nostalgic trip down memory lane, it was also quite tedious. With the release of Decent and the trilogy coming to a close, its time to see if they saved the best for last. For those that [...]

WE Play: Bulletstorm Echoes - The Club

[...]

Fat Booth Review

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be fat? Well they’ve only gone and made an app for it haven’t they! Fat Booth is a fantastic little application that magically transforms you into a Rick Waller impersonator. It really is a fantastic piece of kit which is well worth your time and [...]

Ageing Booth Review

Not so much a game as an absolute hilarious application that is for the iPhone - we couldn’t help but take a look at this one. The game distinctly changes your age and makes you look as if you have had 60 cigarettes a day for 30 years and discovered an addiction for alcohol. The [...]

Speedball 2: Evolution Review

Ice cream, ice cream! - If a fortune teller came up to me and told me that Bitmap Brothers iconic classic Speedball 2 was finally going to get a remake that did the original justice and that that would happen on the iPhone and iPad, I would have murdered his children and told the police [...]

WE Play: Zombie Sausages

James and Steve takes a look at a twitch based game for Xbox Indie Games called Zombie Sausages, this game is very similar to the Sniper games that were available in the early days of Indie Games on Xbox but it adds a smattering of humor and some nice explosive moments too. Can we recommend [...]
