The Walking Dead Icon
A must for any fan of the show
by Jack Fate, United Kingdom - Nov 24th 2017

As you'd expect from publisher Telltale games, this title really captures the atmosphere of the series. Involving story and just the right level of puzzling.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition Icon
I wanted to love it.....
by Jack Fate, United Kingdom - Nov 24th 2017

Like many, I played and loved this game years ago and was looking to recature the glory days. However despite having some fun moments, gaming has moved on around it. With so many other titles out there with so much more to offer I simply couldn't justify coming back to Monkey Island, no matter how much my 10 year-old self wanted too.

The Silent Age Icon
Charming and innovative
by Jack Fate, United Kingdom - May 23rd 2016

A very enjoyable game. The graphic style provides an inviting backdrop to some solid point and click gaming. The puzzles, though not overly taxing are still challenging enough while the time-travel mechanic adds extra depth to the gameplay. The storyline keeps you hooked and will stay in the mind long after you've seen the end credits roll.

Braid Icon
Grown-up gaming
by Jack Fate, United Kingdom - Apr 25th 2016

The beautiful graphics initially draw you in to thinking that this will be just a slick update to the sort of platformers that were around in the 80s-90s. However after the first couple of levels it becomes obvious that Braid is so much more.

Having introduced the rewind-time mechanic early on, it now stops being a novelty and becomes essential to completing the level as the puzzles ramp up.
The puzzling is certainly challenging but never illogical or too obscure. Overall, a gorgeous- looking game that is both fun and engaging.

Glowfish Icon
Relaxing
by Jack Fate, United Kingdom - Mar 31st 2016

Although a straight-forward and not particularly challenging game, the graphics and overall atmosphere are beautiful.
I found myself relaxing in to this and really starting to enjoy the laid back game play.
Recommended for when you want to relax and unwind.
