N++ Is Platforming Heaven

I’ve discovered some really amazing games that aren’t mentioned enough thanks to smaller game focussed websites. N++ is one of them. N++ by Metanet Software is an elegant platformer with more levels than this post has words. I’d never played N and N+ but I’m really glad I bought N++ a few weeks ago and have consistently enjoyed blasting through sets of levels everyday. N++ has you playing as a ninja through levels avoiding enemies and obstacles to get to...

Firewatch — Pyromance

I’ve been excited about playing Firewatch ever since Campo Santo first revealed it. Every trailer since then has looked absolutely stunning and the screenshots are basically excellent fodder for wallpapers. Combine that with music by Chris Remo (who I loved in Gone Home) and the involvement of Panic (One of our favorite studios out there) and my interest grew multiple times. Over the last few days, I’ve managed playing Firewatch twice while trying to consume every little bit of dialogue...

The Highlight 2015 — Games

2015 has been an amazing year for games with quality releases across all the platforms. There were games that impressed me not just visually, but also from a design perspective. This year has seen the release of the Apple TV as an apps and games platform, along with the PS4 and Xbox One breaking sales records. 2015 is also the year in which I got my Xbox One and got to experience my favourite racing game of all time, Forza...

Orph is an Addictive Puzzle Game

I consider myself a casual gamer. I’ve mentioned in the past that I love to find games that I can pick up and start playing anytime and anywhere, without needing to focus for longer periods. So when I came across Orph this past week, I was naturally hooked. Orph is a puzzle game for iPhone, iPad and Android devices that offers a surreal experience with its design and in-game music. Orph has a fairly simple objective — get the balls...

Horizon Chase — A Modern Take on an Old School Racing Game

I’ve been getting back into racing games ever since I played Driveclub on PS4 and have been on the lookout for a good racing game for every platform I own. Most people think of the Asphalt series when they think of racing games for iOS, and while those games do look nice, they are too IAP-ridden for my liking. Horizon Chase by Aquiris Game Studio is one of the best racing games I’ve ever experienced. It has stunning visuals, is...

Almost Impossible! — Frustratingly Elegant Platforming

I love it when app developers try something new. Dan Counsell from Realmac Software has just released a game called Almost Impossible!, available now for iPhone, iPad & Mac, and coming to the new Apple TV very soon. I’ve been playing with the iOS version of the last few days and have quite enjoyed it. Almost Impossible! is a precision platforming game that has really difficult levels. Unlike other similar games, you don’t get a level select, but instead you...
