Review: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes – Definitive Edition

Not for the first time, I find myself taking on the full version of a title that I have already previewed. Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes – Definitive Edition already let me dip a toe into what the game had to offer, and I rather liked what it had on display. So I immediately

Preview: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes – Definitive Edition

Match-3 puzzle-based RPGs have been popular ever since Puzzle Quest arrived back in 2007. It seems like a pretty natural formula to fall back on, only slightly impacted by the fact that as a rule, most of them have kind of been absolutely terrible. While the basics of the puzzle gameplay are solid (we have,

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge

You really had to be a certain age to fully understand the absolutely monstrous chokehold that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had on younger kids at the time. Since then, to a certain extent, many other IPs popular with their target audience have had a hard time replicating at the height of its popularity. Save

Review: Windjammers 2

Some may accuse me of clinging to nostalgia, but I still think there’s still value in the formula of certain simplistic old school arcade game mechanics.

Review: Ys Origin [Switch]

The Ys series is an odd one in the annals of JRPGs. On the one hand, it is very much in the original school of these games, with the first installment coming out in 1987, and there was a definite push to bring it to North America. Unfortunately, due to a variety of different factors,

Review: Streets of Rage 4

After 26 years (!!) without any entry in the series, you would think that fans of the long-forgotten Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle franchise would have to resort to relishing in the glory of the Genesis/Mega Drive heydey with the first three titles with little hope for any sequel. While the hope was kept alive that

Preview: Another World 20th Anniversary Addition

Adventure games, in my opinion, never got the praise they deserved. I could rattle off a list of titles that really defined the genre, but Another World is the topic for today. Developers DotEmu and BulkyPix are bringing the game – “Remastered”, of course – to iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad. Re-live
