Tue Mar 17, 2015 9:30 pm by Professor Clayton
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 …

Review: Soccer Up Online (3DS eShop)
Wed Mar 11, 2015 7:18 pm by Professor Clayton
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.

Soccer isn't a complicated sport, at least …

Review: Dolphin Up (Wii U eShop)
Tue Feb 24, 2015 9:50 pm by Cap'n Pancakes
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. …

Adventures Fit for a King

Despite the best efforts of Nintendo, online multiplayer is slowly behinning to overshadow the local variety on its systems. The Japenese company continues to release titles which promote two or four players sitting on a couch and having a good time, but not many other developers step up to this level of commitment …
