    King of Clubs Review

    King of Clubs

    King of Clubs isn't fun. It's anti-fun. What a strange game King of Clubs is, and not in a Japanese, bizarre otaku... more

    Flock! Review

    Flock!

    Flock! is an enjoyable game when it all works, but it's far too easy to encounter one of its many soul destroying problems. Flock! Is a game that wants to be loved. The quirky art style and annoyingly... more

    Pneuma: Breath of Life Review

    Pneuma: Breath of Life

    Pneuma can appear pompous and over-reaching, and those who buy it for the puzzles alone will walk away disappointed. As a package though, it's worth checking out. There's a moment around about a third of the way into Pneuma's three/four... more

    The Gardens Between review

    The Gardens Between

    A seductive art style, hazy synth sounds, and some well-designed puzzles give The Gardens Between a pleasant mood, but it doesn’t stay in the mind long after the credits. If you didn’t know who made The Gardens Between and you had to guess... more

    Pikuniku review

    Pikuniku

    This puzzle-platformer’s puzzles and platforming might be merely alright – and the music is a proper irritant – but Pikuniku is full of so much cheer and loveliness elsewhere. It’s bursting with character in a story that’s equal parts silly and uplifting. When it comes to Pikuniku, really hard to look past what, at first, appears... more

    Maquette review

    Maquette

    The puzzles compel, while the narrative stalls, and there is something worthy in that mismatch. I only wish that breakup at its core yielded something worth holding on to. Maquette tells the story of two lovers, Michael and Kenzie, but... more

    Pipe Mania Review

    Pipe Mania

    With plenty of puzzles, numerous game modes and two-player support (on PSP) PipeMania is a fun, tough puzzler that is different enough to other puzzlers on the market to warrant a purchase. At school we had special lessons focussed on careers. The idea was to give... more

    The UnderGarden Review

    The UnderGarden

    Intentional or not the game is still relatively zen: calming, unchallenging but not particularly self-reflective. It's a strange time in the independent games market when in the last five... more

    N++ Review

    N++

    N++ delivers consistently excellent bursts of platforming devilishness, but it's not enough to keep me interested for the long haul. N++ is probably the purest video game I've played since, well, N+. You're a... more

    Hitman GO Review

    Hitman GO

    Hitman GO easily met my expectations and is perfect to while away a few minutes here and there. Hitman has always been a bit of a love/hate game. From the moment I first... more

    Replica Review

    Replica

    An interesting phone-hacking game which draws from the player's real-world experiences to good effect. Replica is a retelling of sorts of The Talented Mr Ripley, this time through... more

    The Turing Test Review

    The Turing Test

    The Turing Test can be quite accurately described as Portal meets Soma, exploring similar ideas of AI and selfhood. The trouble is, I suppose, that both those games did each aspect better. As a species we have a curious habit of anthropomorphising almost everything... more

    Linelight Review

    Linelight

    While not offering anything groundbreaking as such, this tranquil, simplistic puzzler is a joyous distraction in a medium that can sometimes pride itself on pomp and circumstance. For more detailed thoughts on Linelight check out the video review and... more

    Kine review

    Kine

    If you’ve got a mind for puzzles, Kine is great. If you’re into the narrative, Kine might make you feel like an afterthought. Kine is a tricky musical puzzle game. At first, it may look simple, and the... more

    Angry Birds Space Review

    Angry Birds Space

    I find it a shame, though understandable, that many people see iOS development as a race to the bottom. Angry Birds Space, however, effortlessly shows why Rovio is currently on top. Angry Birds, eh? It's like the Call of Duty of the mobile world, in that it... more

    Portal

    The simple ideas are often the best, and Portal is one of the best ideas for a game we've ever seen. It's fantastically realised and brilliantly executed. You wake up in a room without knowing why you're there - white walls,... more

    Limbo Review

    Limbo

    Limbo is a puzzle game that is littered with ideas and an artistic eye, but more importantly it understands the frustrations of repetition and makes failure enjoyable. With the influx of pretty independent games over the last ten years it's... more

    Fez's ornate world, sumptuous audiovisual presentation, and cryptic machinations made me feel like an adrift archaeologist filled with wonder. By and large indie games don't get a lot of pre-release hype. Plenty become... more
