The Next Level In Gaming



While I was at the previewing of the latest Curve Studios games, I was able to have a look Mousecraft, one of the most interesting games I have seen in a while. Mousecraft is quite a unique one if I must say so and the aim of the game is to get three mice across a stage to a pressure pad with cheese. The only way to do that is to arrange a set of blocks so that the mice [...]

I recently had the chance to look at some of the latest games from indie developer Curve Studios. The first game I played was Titans Attacks, a game that is a lot like a modern version of Galaga or Space Invaders. However unlike its these arcade classics there are more game play elements, such ship upgrades and new weapons. The story of Titan Attacks is very simple. Aliens have invaded and you are the one to defend the solar system. [...]

It’s not very often that you come across a puzzle game that is as intuitive, beautiful and original as The Swapper. Many puzzles games these days seem to use the same ideas over and over again, but this new space puzzler from Curve Studios brings something new to the genre. The Swapper mixes classic 2D side scrolling Metroidvania exploration, with clever puzzle game play including a cloning element. You are a loan astronaut exploring an abandoned space station and the [...]

Contributed by CJ PREPARE TO DIE 1.45am wake-up for a 3.35am bus. Plenty of time. Except, my PC had gone bonkers and – not for the first time, but for the first time in the longest time – was showing the wrong time. At 3.30am the news spiked beyond radio music and I was mortified. Computer clock said 3.11. Bus leaves at 3.35. I ran at what seemed like The Flash speeds, although somewhat more human, pathetic and carrying a [...]

Not yet owning a Wii U console, I was still quite excited to try some of the console’s offerings at this year’s EGX. Nintendo have got a fair few exclusives this generation, from their own core series, to a handful of special exclusivity deals. With the PlayStation and Xbox brands littered across the show floor full of cross-platform titles, the Nintendo section was as busy as ever, with fans eager to get a glimpse of those exclusive goods. Here’s my round-up [...]

At this years Eurogamer Expo they showcased the Next Gen Consoles, and one of the games that the Xbox One was showing off was a real blast from the past. Killer Instinct was a game that I loved on the Super Nintendo, as the ability to do one hundred hit combos was something that no other beat em up had done. Since then I haven’t found many games like Killer Instinct that allow you to have huge combos, and so [...]

Warning: While the *major* plot spoiler for Lords of Shadow is pretty hard to avoid, just thought I’d warn you that there will be spoilers for the first game here. You have been warned! Of all the games at Eurogamer Expo this year, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 was the one I was the most excited about. Coming seemingly out of nowhere at the hands of an then-unknown developer (Mercurysteam) the original Lords of Shadow blew me away in terms of sheer [...]

I’m a pretty dedicated fan of the Zelda series, owning the vast majority of the series (I still lack a copy of Spirit Tracks!) but the 3D titles such as Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess are where my heart really lies with the saga. I’ve completed A Link To The Past, The Minish Cap, Four Swords Anniversary and Phantom Hourglass, but it’s more for the lore and history of the series that I tend to delve into them. [...]

Believe it or not there was a platforming game that took the Sega Megadrive by storm before the days of everyone’s favorite high speed blue hedgehog. That game was Castle of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse and I used to spend hours playing the game back in the day. SEGA have now released a HD Remake of the retro classic for PSN, XBLA and PC – so does this HD re-imaging tick all the boxes and give us retro gamers the [...]
