Brings Life Back to a Decaying Idea




Let's face it, zombies have been overused beyond any tolerable point throughout the past ten years. This fad, which began with good intentions, began becoming a cop-out for lazy developers and simply decayed over time.

Tue Apr 07, 2015 2:50 pm by Knuckles
Two Flaps Too Many




Just like Minecraft, Flappy Bird had inspired many clones. Flap Flap is almost a Flappy Bird DX, an improvement upon the original with the addition of enemies and items. However, do these additions weigh down the entire experience?

Electric Guitar on the Go




When was the last time you saw someone casually carrying around an electric guitar? While a budding musician would benefit from practicing their craft on the go, it simply isn't worth the hassle of lugging around a guitar, even without an amp.

Try Breezing Through This





           Many recent puzzle games have taken a deceptively simple concept and found a unique way of challenging gamers in a way that is both difficult but still captivating. BreezeBlox implements one such interesting concept, but don’t let its simplicity mislead you.

Review: Frenchy Bird (Wii U eShop)

Needs to Fly South For the Winter




Flappy Bird inspired games, clones, and anything else related to the original game have all had the same issues as the original. Beyond the simplicity of the core concept on hand, each title has failed to bring any real personality or new features to the gameplay, which results in a quickly stale concept. Most …

A Shot Way Off Target




Soccer Up Online is a game with a simple task- to let you and your friends play a game of European Football over the internet. Amazingly, this title manages to stumble at nearly every chance possible, with nothing working like it should, leaving behind a disappointing product.

Review: Dolphin Up (Wii U eShop)

Soaring High




Dolphin Up may appear as a cute game where you take control of a lovable dolphin to perform aerial tricks, but it's actually rather deceiving. Contrary to what the game's title would have you believe, there are actually no dolphins present in the game. No, instead you can choose between three playable porpoises. …
