LUNA The Shadow Dust – More style than substance – Review
You almost immediately take control of two protagonists: a boy hoping to make it to the top of a massive tower, and an adorably rotund soccer ball of a cat that tags along for the ride and lends a helping paw whenever it’s necessary.
Moons of Madness – “Mars sucks” – Review
The overall premise of being stranded on a Mars base and having to tackle Lovecraftian horrors is nothing if not promising – it’s positively brimming with potential waiting to be tapped.
Eldervale – An indie take on oldschool survival horror – Review
Right as one boots up Eldervale, the influences of early Silent Hill installments can immediately be felt: the player is thrust into a multi-storey building and has to rely on their trusty map to navigate the place, look for key items, solve mind-bending puzzles and occasionally bash in the head of an undead nurse or two with a steel pipe, although that last bit is somewhat optional.
The fate of a cursed errand boy – The Sinking City – Review
The Sinking City sees you take on the role of a private detective haunted by mysterious visions, who then journeys to the city of Oakmont to uncover the truth behind his unsettling dreams. This, as one might expect, brings him face to face with all sorts of unusual phenomena and a host of peculiar citizens as he explores streets stricken by flood and famine alike.
Guard Duty – Your princess is in another castle – Review
When a mysterious man in a black cloak kidnaps the princess and the knights of the realm aren’t doing a very good job of saving her, it falls upon Tondbert, a common, bumbling guard, to take matters into his own hands.
